Keep Your Locks From Freezing with These Beanie Styles for Long Hair

The winter months mean inclement weather and freezing temperatures, and if you’re into snowsports it’s the most wonderful time of the year. But whether you’re ripping powder lines or making snow angels, cold weather means potential damage to your locks.

It’s especially important to protect your locks from freezing, which can cause drying, breakage and other heinous damage you don’t want to inflict.

Warm, Stylish and Super Simple

Beanies are a cold weather fixture, tried and true for protecting your mane from the elements while keeping your head toasty with swaggy style.

Beyond their obvious benefits, beanies are a versatile tool for guys with flow, offering fast and reliable solutions to common longhair problems, like keeping annoying loose hair out of your face and providing critical wind blockage at high speed.

They’re super easy to wear and perfect for days when you don’t feel like dealing with your hair, and they provide the ideal solution for awkward stage hair.

And let’s be honest, wearing a beanie with long hair just looks badass.

  1. Beanie 2 is my favorite, I would also rock the one with the ball. And for the real outdoorsman how about a sick camo and even a bright orange one, I know some long haired hunters who would love that.

  2. When can we expect to see these beanies for sale? Digging #2

    1. They already were on sale and sold out. Probably be fall or winter when we’ll do a re-release.

  3. It’s all about #1, but gotta be long enough so there’s some bagginess hanging off the top. Beanie #2 and #3 are too 2010, and pom poms are only acceptable for chicks or if you’re on the slopes (and even that’s a push). Also, keep it black, keep it classic, keep it cool. Bonus points for black on black.

  4. I think a bigger logo and a bunch of colors like red, blue and yellow would be cool!!!

  5. If you guys make beanies, could you make different colors like red, blue, yellow? With a giant logo on it?

  6. Hey guys. My hair keeps falling in my face now. Keep on debating if I should start wearing in a poney tail. It’s in the awkward stage I think. My bangs hang to just below my chin now. My back is probley 3″ past shirt collars. Don’t ever plan on getting a hair cut again. Do you guys think it’s time to Start wearing the poney tail or do you think that’s to short yet?

      Yo Mace! If you can start tying it up into a ponytail, do it! 3″ past the collar sounds good, but it’s more about if your bangs will reach back and stay in your tie. So if you can tie all your hair back and it stays, you’ve made it through the awkward stage. Welcome to the team, amigo.

  7. Great Video Man!! I’ve been wearing mine with two twists one either side, it’s great for when your trying to look like a Viking snoop Dogg!!
    Keep up good work!!

      Hell yeah man! Send a picture of that when you get a chance. Thanks for writing in.

  8. Those Bernie’s were ?, Just didn’t care too much for the one with the ball.

  9. Great video (shout-out to Phoebe Young); the tips are spot-on. Although I’ve had long hair my whole life I’ve never thought through the wearing of the beanie. Thanks guys!

  10. And if you’re in the awkward stage (like I am) I part my hair down the middle and it right over my ears and put the beanie on. It looks sick and keeps the hair out of your face. This works with longer hair too but not quite as practical.

  11. Wow beanies, great idea! I would love to rock the long hair pride with one of these bad boys. Just a thought though, I notice there are no non-slouch fit beanies to vote on. I for one like the original beanie fit! That being said, I’m in love with the pom pom version!

  12. He’s excited to see what you guys have coming in the future! He has the advantage of mom being a knitter so he has several, but on can never have too many slouch beanies!
