Hold on to your hats! How to wear your hair with a hat

The perfect accessory for unpredictable inter-seasonal weather, a hat nevertheless poses a few problems when it comes to showing off our hair, not to mention the dreaded "hat hair" revealed once inside! Here's why the hat trend is one to stick to, and also how you can style your locks to stay modern, chic and flatness-

Why we love a hat

Hats, from wide-brimmed fedoras to British bowlers and even panamas with panache, immediately add style to any look. Ideal for hiding greasy roots in-between washes, or keeping hair under control on a windy/rainy day, a hat is both stylish and practical!

The best hair color for wearing a hat

Ensure your hair isn't lost underneath your hat with a contemporary color. This season, it's all about cool or neutral color tones such as ash and beige blond. These more casual colors can give any hat a more relaxed, urban character, away from an overly-dressy look. Stylists recommend Majirel Cool Color, a range of over 30 permanent hair colors including both cool blond and brunette shades to flatter your skin tone.

How to wear your hair under a hat

These days, glamorous glossy Hollywood waves are left on the red carpet, and instead modern fashionistas are opting for shorter cuts like pixies, bobs and long bobs, cut into piecey layers to create natural-looking volume. Under a hat, a long bob that falls just to your chin or shoulder line will showcase your bone structure and draw attention to your eyes. Straight or wavy, the choice is yours, although curls will make the hair appear shorter.

How to prevent "hat hair"

To contrast with the glamour of a wide-brimmed hat, why not give your hair an on-trend matte finish while also preventing against flat, limp "hat hair"? The Anti-Gravity Root Spray from the Volumetry line by Serie Expert not only gives hair a modern matte texture, but lifts hair from the roots thanks to a blend of Intra-Cylane™ and Hydralight molecules.
