Ponytail hats are designed to accommodate your ponytail or bun. Ponytail hats have a unique opening in the back or top of the hat to allow you to pull your hair through. This hat style solved the incompatibility problem of hats and ponytails. In the realm of hat history, this style is a new design, but long awaited by women who prefer their hair up, and have given up wearing a hat because hats do not look right with the lump of the hair misshaping the crown, or the bun preventing the hat to sit on the top of the head. You will never again have to tuck your hair into your hat. Now, let’s explore available ponytail hat styles and brands.

Ponytail Hat Styles:

1. Straw Hats with Ponytail Opening

The back of the crown of these straw hats has an opening, and the brim is split. Hook and loop strap closure allow you to pull your hair through easily, and adjust the fit as needed. This style of a ponytail hat fits a wider range of sizes. The shape of the crown can be round or pinched, like a fedora. The ponytail opening and the brim are ribbon bound. The varying width of the brim, ranges from 3" to 5", allows you to choose a style to accommodate your activity and sun protection need. 

Advantages of Straw Ponytail Hats:

Breathability: Made of natural straws, modern paper-braid, or poly-straw. These hats are lightweight and breathable, allowing air to circulate and keep your head cool on sizzling summer days. Lucy Palm Leaf Sun Hat with Ponytail Hole is a natural straw hat made by the famous palm straw hat brand Tula Hats. Our best selling Karen Keith Tweed Straw Facesaver hat with Ponytail is made of paper-braid straw. Gabi Ponytail Hole Fedora by Wallaroo is made of Flexy-Weave® a poly-straw. 

Sun Protection: The material of these hats is tested for their UV blocking properties. Tightly woven or braided straw hats provide excellent sun protection. In addition, the wide brim provides ample shade to protect your face, neck, and shoulders from the sun’s harmful rays, helping to prevent sunburn and skin damage.

Larger Ponytail Opening: The opening of a straw hat is wide with varying height to accommodate low to high ponytails and buns comfortably. The hook and loop closure allows to easily place the hair without having to pull it through the ponytail hole. Boardwalk Hat’s Wide Brim Straw Ponytail Facesaver Sun Hat offers a high opening for a messy bun and a stylish straw bow detail over the Velcro® closure.

Adjustable Sizing: The hook and loop strap allows about an inch of adjustment on the OSFM hats accommodating a range of fit, and allows you reduce or expand the size and adjust from a snug to a looser fit. Some brands also offer small or large size ponytail hats. Karen Keith Ponytail Fedora Hat is made for larger head sizes, while Petite Gabi Fedora by Wallaroo Hat Company fits smaller head sizes.

Split Brim: The unique butterfly split prevents the wide brim from bumping into your back and pushing the hat forward, even the larger brim ponytail hats. This makes ponytail hats easy to wear when getting in and out of a car, or just lounging in a beach chair.

Functionality: Wide selection of styles to choose from to suit every taste and occasion. Whether you are at a summer barbeque or traveling around the world, ponytail hats will keep your hair off your face and off your neck ensuring you will be comfortable and fashionable. Packable ponytail hats make a great travel companion. Wallaroo’s Gabi ponytail hat pack easily and available in petite as well as OSFM to accommodate ladies with smaller head sizes.

2. Trail Hats with Ponytail Hole

Sun Protection: UV blocking fabric and the wide brim protects your eyes, face, ears, neck, and shoulders from sun exposure.

It can be a triangle shape with sectioning straps, a slit sometimes with a zipper closure, or a stretchy opening on top of the hat. Ginnie Caps™ have an open back with a smooth hook and loop closure that will not pull your hair. The open crown is perfect to show off your braided hair.

Advantages of Ponytail Beanies:

The clever ponytail opening is reinforced with a stretchy adjustable closure to easily pull your hair through, then tighten to your liking.

Style: Ponytail beanies come in various materials to suit your preferences and weather conditions. Common materials include soft acrylic yarn for warmth and comfort, wool for added insulation, or a blend of materials for durability and breathability. For extreme wintry weather, choose a ponytail beanie lined with warm fleece, sherpa, or faux fur. Choose from classic ribbed knit for a timeless look, cable knit for texture and visual interest, or pom-pom beanies for a playful whimsical look.
