How to Wear Your Hair with a Turtleneck

How to Wear Your Hair with a Turtleneck

When the weather turns cold, you might want to stay cozy and warm in your favorite turtleneck. These sweaters are really trendy right now, partially because you can dress them up or down. The way you style your hair can really help make your whole look come together. There are no rules when it comes to how you wear your hair with a turtleneck. The key is to have fun trying out different styles and choose one that makes you feel happy and confident.

Method 1 of 2:
Styling Your Hair When it’s Down

1
Tuck your hair into the sweater for a trendy style. This look is super simple and stylish at the same time, making it a great choice. If you have hair that reaches past the top of your turtleneck, just neatly gather the ends of your hair in your hands and tuck it into your collar. If you want, gently pull a little hair out to create more volume. [1] X Research source This will look great with natural hair, but you could also use an anti-frizz product to tame any flyaways.
2
Sweep long hair all to the side for an asymmetrical look. Putting all of your hair to one side creates a dramatic, yet casual look. Simply gather your hair and place it over one shoulder. Curly and straight hair both work well with this easy to achieve style, so do whichever look you like best. You can also tuck the hair behind your ear to help keep it in place. [2] X Research source Try spritzing your hair with a flexible-hold hairspray to keep your hair where you want it. If you like wearing braids, a side-braid would also look great with a turtleneck.
3
Schedule a blowout for a professional, long-lasting look. Blowouts give your hair a ton of volume and shine. If you want to wear your hair long and loose with your sweater, consider a blow-out if you have a little extra money. You can ask the stylist to create bouncy curls or make your hair glossy and straight. Either choice will look great. Even better, blowouts last for several days, so your hair will look great for most of the week! [3] X Research source

Slick your hair back for an effortless look. A sleek slicked-back look will highlight your stylish turtleneck. This look is really easy to create. Just rub your favorite styling creme between your palms and apply liberally to your hair. Brush the hair straight back on top of your head and the sides. The rest of your hair can hang loosely, which is a great contrast to the slicked-back front. [4] X Research source Secure some hairpins or clips near the base of your head. This will keep your hair in place and create volume at the crown, too.
5
Create loose curls for a relaxed style. You can do this using whatever method for curls that you like. Waves made with heat, like a curling iron or beach wave tool will give you large, loose curls that will hold well. If you don’t like to heat style your hair, you could use curlers. To create a soft, romantic look, just curl your hair as usual and then tousle your waves and let them hang loose over your turtleneck. [5] X Research source You could also create curls and then sweep your hair over one shoulder to combine two great looks.

Method 2 of 2:
Creating Updos

1
Secure your hair in a top knot for a messy, cool look. This style can help make a turtleneck feel like a relaxed and easy look. Brush your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic hair tie. Next, wrap your ponytail around the elastic so that it forms a bun. Secure with a few bobby pins and you’re all set! [6] X Research source Spritz your top knot with hairspray to keep it in place. You can also tame any flyaways with a smoothing paste. Pull a few strands out of the top knot if you like the look of some wispy strands framing your face.
2
Braid your hair and pin them up to create an intricate look. Braids are a fun way to create a unique style. Any style of braid that you choose will look great with a turtleneck. If you want all of your hair off of your face, try a traditional French braid. For a more modern take, weave your hair into a loose fishbone braid. [7] X Research source Try weaving your hair into a crown of braids. There are lots of great YouTube videos that can help you learn to do this. You could also splurge and have a stylist create this look for you.
3
Part your hair on the side and pull it back to highlight the turtleneck. A turtleneck can draw a lot of attention to your face. If you’d rather highlight the turtleneck and your hair, an off-center part can help with that. To create a side part, just use a comb to create a line to either the left or right of the center of your head. Then pull it back into a ponytail. [8] X Research source If you want your style to look a little quirky, create a zig-zag part rather than just drawing a straight line with your comb. This style works great with a low, loose ponytail.
4
Sport a ponytail to keep it simple. Brush your hair back, gather it in your hand, and secure it with a hair tie. Try a sleek, low pony for a classic look. Or gather your hair into a side pony for a young, fresh take. You can also create a half-up, half-down look by only gathering some of your hair into a small ponytail near the crown of your head. [9] X Research source Add extra flair to your style by wrapping a pretty scarf or ribbon around your ponytail.
5
Arrange your hair in a French twist for a classic style. This style is elegant and easy to create, making it a great go-to for your fall or winter style. Gather your hair to one side and then insert a bobby pin at the base of your head, slightly off-center. Working from that base, create a verticle row of bobby pins, crisscrossing them as you move towards the top of your head. Gather your hair in one hand, twist tightly, and hold it up near the top of your head. Insert some more bobby pins into the base of the twist to secure the style.
