Ooh baby it's cold outside, and the southern states of Australia are especially feeling the chill as winter begins. Luckily, with cold weather comes some awesome hair styling options... including beanies!
Beanies are a great winter staple for many reasons, not only do they keep your noggin warm, but they also help protect your hair from the elements – rain, wind and cold.
So what's the best way to style your beanie hair this winter? Great news - there's not just one way to style it, but many! Check out some of our picks for the biggest beanie babes on Instagram below.
This straight and stunning look from @torirosespear is simple yet stylish.
Long and loose
We love the way @happy_axe has kept her hair style relaxed with a close cropped handmade crochet beanie over long loose hair. Her fringe and hair keeps her face framed beautifully too!
@kimberlydods has upped the ante here and created a bit of movement through the ends of her hair to show off her beautiful ombré lengths. Just because the top of your head is under cover, doesn't mean you can't have fun with the rest!
Waves aren't just for summer! @carnationsandlace showcases her dark chocolate hair with some gorgeous tousled waves. Try incorporating a gel like into your locks before styling to encourage the natural texture of your hair to shine through!
Sometimes the best styling means doing almost nothing at all! @violetabron has the effortless look down pat.
Use your vibrant colour to dress up (or down) your beanie style like @ryoushii ! #colorfulhair from L'oréal Professionnel is a great way to try a range of colours without long-term commitment, perfect if you're ready to embrace the rainbow this winter under your beanie!
Who said beanie babes needed to be only women? We love this understated style from @smisoskosana where he's let his dreads do the talking.
Australia's @billybonesclub knows just how to style a beanie over textured surfy hair! When your locks have had an ocean infusion of salt and sand, a beanie is a great way to tie your style back together.
So which beanie babe is your inspiration for this winter?
