If you been reading my blog for awhile, you know I’m a big fan of hats. I love the stye, but I also love the added benefits of keeping the sun off my face and out of my eyes. A lot of women shy away from hats because they don’t believe they look good in hats or they’ll have “hat hair”. First of all, saying you don’t look good in hats is ridiculous because there are so many types of hats that you’re bound to find one that fits you right. Secondly, there’s a simple trick to combat hat hair that I’ll share with you today:
Normally I part my hair to one side, so if I put on a hat, I’m covering up my part and one side of my hair will look thicker than the other. So before I put a hat on, I brush my hair straight back. This not only evens out each side’s hair thickness, but also avoids “hat hair”. It’s a win-win! I do have courser hair, so for those of you whose hair ‘dents’ a little quicker, I recommend using a dry shampoo, taking your hat off periodically, and also running a comb through it.
My hat above was sent to me by Harding-Lane. I’ve been wanting a needlepoint hat for awhile because it’s such a classic, preppy style, and they had so many wonderful choices. My favorite part is the strap on the back is made from sailboat cloth. It’s extremely well made and very fun to pair with any outfit. You’ll be seeing more from me about Harding-Lane later this Spring.
