Top 5 reasons to wear a hat this summer
From cloche to fedora, floppy brim to boater. A summer hat or two should be part of your wardrobe.
1. Make a statement
Wearing a hat is a fun and easy way to “top off” an outfit. A lot of people feel they don’t look good in hats. But if you feel this way you probably just haven’t found the right hat shape for you. There’s a balance between face shape, brim width, and crown height. The experts at Goorin Brothers have a guide to finding the right hat for your face shape
. And they should know, they’ve been making and selling hats for over 100 years. If you’re new to wearing hats, pick a classic shape – you can’t go wrong.
2. Keep cool
When the summer sun is at it’s peak, you can carry a bit of shade with you wherever you go by wearing a hat. Choose a summer-friendly hat in straw or fabric. Think of the classic Panama hat.
3. Protect your hair
If you color or highlight your hair, you might know that UV rays can shorten the life of your salon color. So protect your color investment with a hat.
4. Hide a bad hair day
Speaking of hair, on a hot, sticky day sometimes the best defense is a stylish hat.
5. Hats are addictive
Once you find a hat that works for you, you’re bound to find others. Soon you’ll have a hat wardrobe!
One reason women don’t want to wear a hat is the dreaded “hat hair.” Here are some expert tips on how to avoid flattened locks when you take off your hat.
1. Make sure your hair is dry before you put on your hat.
2. Avoid using too much product on your hair if you’ll be wearing a hat. You’ll end up with a sticky mess on your head and inside your hat.
3. Keep it simple. Not every hairstyle goes with a hat.
4. Flip your hair in the opposite direction of the way you normally wear it before you put on your hat. Then when you take off your hat, you can flip your hair back. Instant lift.
5. If you do end up with hat hair, here’s a fix: flip your head upside down and apply a texturizing spray. Shake out your hair as the product dries.
