Can Short-Haired Mamas Look Cute in Winter Hats? The Happiest Mom Tests ‘Em Out

Mamas, have your read our round-up of super-stylish winter hats?  Some of the comments we received were from short-haired mamas, noting that hats are tricky (at best) with a super-short haircut.  Reader Erica said: 

I like the idea of adding style via a hat…but don't think they'll work well with my super-short mom hairstyle. 🙁

Bummer, right?  Then reader Meagan B responded: 

Erica, when I had super short hair I found that I needed to wear a really feminine hat or one with a brim. If you wear a beanie style you can easily be called "Sir" (trust me, it happened to my sister!). 

 Hmmm….where there's a will, there's always a way, right?  But it's clearly a tricky situation.  And I wanted more…proof?  Inspiration?  And it just so happens that Meagan Francis (The Happiest Mom) had somewhat recently cut her hair.  Short.  Really, really short.  And it looks great.  I love how a short hairstyle can be so chic, and in Meagan's case, makes her bright blue eyes pop.

So cute.  And since Meagan is a super-fun, up-for-anything kind of a gal…I emailed, asking if she'd be willing to test out some winter hats.  As a leeetle expirament, if you will. 

Yup.  She was.  And she did.  (OMG LOVE HER)

Meagan sent pics with the following note: 

I took these pics at Meijer while grocery shopping…it's not exactly a fashion mecca, but I thought they had some cute styles! 

(The newsboy cap did look hideous so I chose not to take a photo of that one, lol.)

And one thing I thought was much better about the hat over really short hair as opposed to mid-length or kinda short hair is that usually hats would push the hair down around my face and neck and be all itchy. Not a problem at all with the super-short hair. I'm totally getting hats this winter!

And no wonder – look how cute!!

My personal favorite is the white fuzzy one.  This look would look especially cute with bright lipstick.

Meagan, you are such a great sport!  And you look adorable, as always!!

    Ha! I’m the Megan B of the above comment. I’m sure my sister would be thrilled to know that everyone now knows she was called ‘Sir’!!
    It did make her rethink her hat choices though….

    Ooh I love the herringbone one. Megan has such great bone structure they all look cute, but I can see how on most of us, some of these hats would create too masculine of a look for my taste. The herringbone one is so feminine, I think there’d never be any chance of a “sir” mistake, even for those of us with less awesome cheekbones!
