Here's the "twist to the trend" of Messy Bun hats!! I have thin, fine, short hair. I know that my hair wouldn't stay in the hole in the top of this hat. It is straight as a string and without 1/2 a can of hairspray to glue it into place, my hair pretty much does what it wants!!
What if you aren't having a "bad hair day" and just need a regular beanie to keep your keppie warm and toasty? With this button on flower you can have both!! A Messy Bun for some days, a regular ole beanie for others.
