You’ve probably guessed right? Beanies are supercool in 2020! That will make some of you estatic but how many of you hold a sneaking doubt that beanies are for you? That you love them but don’t think they shape your face the way you want or won’t give you that quality look? So the HairFlair team thought we would show you some tricks & styles so beanies can be your next favourite look or at least a few options to keep you snug and feeling chic during the winter months ❄️
1. The Slouch
The Slouch look beanie is hipster & fun and is super easy to achieve if your beanie has extra material. Set the slouch back high on your forehead just where the hairline and forehead meet then low at the back over your ears so that the extra material droops at the back. Very much the celebrity model look. Best on : Round, square or pear shaped faces,
Favourite: HairFlairs Angora Blend Slouch/Cuff Beanie - 5 colours- Dark Grey, Light Grey, Red, Pink , White.
2. The Classic
Skullie or traditional Classic (and yes the slouch beanie can be used here too). The Classic look beanie sits half way down the forehead so lower than the slouch. The Skullie is designed with less material to just cover the head whilst the traditional classic beanie has more material but there is less excess at the back because its positioned lower down your forehead.
Why we like this look ? Suits most facial shapes as the level you at which you put the beanie determines your face shape appearance. Also its a little warmer because the material sits closer to the head and keeps it more insulated. 👍
Our Favourite: HairFlairs Woolblend Cable Beanie- 4 colours: Black, Pink, White , Grey
3. The Cuff
The single cuff is exactly as described. Pull the beanie down to just above the eyebrowline then fold it back In one cuff or fold. Play with the size of the cuff to suit, a broader cuff means less material on top!
Why we like the Cuff? Even oval or longer faces can rock the cuff because of the extra horizontal material which widens the look of your facial structure. Our Favourite: Hairflairs Slouch/Cuff Angora Beanies because they have a substantial size cuff that doesn’t look blocky because of the softness of the Angora hair and are reversible for an alternative two tone effect. 3 looks in one as it can also be worn Slouch!
4. The “Sewn down” Slouch
Super classy, current European style. This beanie is actually slouch but is sewn down at the back so to frame the face at the front. What we like: Nothing to do to this one. It can be worn classic or slouch position on your forehead as the slouch doesn’t drag down an oval or longer facial structure.
Our favourite ? HairFlairs Cashmere blend Beanie with Rhinestones - 4 colours available
