Prepare your hair straight or with soft waves. Position the wide brim hat slightly tilted on your head, allowing your hair to flow naturally, this can create a preppy or boho look depending on your accessories and clothes.

For a more sophisticated style, a low pony tail, plait or bun is key with the wide brim hat placed neatly on the top of your head. This look is smart and sharp. Click here for our wide brim hats or sun hats offering good sun protection. 

The Fun Bucket Hat

Bucket hats are making a comeback, and long hair can make this trend even more captivating: Style your hair in a half-up, half-down balance between the hat and your hair. Choose a bucket hat in a color that complements your hair shade. Let your hair flow loosely beneath the hat, embracing the relaxed and playful vibe. For a smarter look style the bucket hat with a low pony tail, plait or bun. We are in the process of designing our fun bucket hat but our crochet small brim hat can be worn like a bucket hat.
