The Hood Offers Creative Rain Protection

While Curly Bella shared her hilarious — to us now, not to her then — tale of creating a makeshift rain bonnet out of a plastic shopping bag post-blowout (like this woman), it's not a look she wants to do over. If you're really concerned about the best protection from drips and drops, umbrellas often fall short when the rain heads straight for your face.

Now entering: The Hood. For flash showers, these hats are considerably more creative than the plastic drugstore cap. Created by Philly-based designer Taryn Zychal, they're made of the same upcycled umbrella fabric and handpicked lining as her doggie jackets. Hands-free but hair-safe, I'm still on the fence on whether this would work for my own head. They'll be available on the Recycling Zychal Etsy Shop starting Monday; will you check them out?

I don't see how that protects the front of her hair and her face from the rain! I'd rather use an umbrella.

As much as I want to protect my hair from that drippy, flat and frizzy look I would want to stay away from the plastic bonnet look. Not the most attractive way to walk in the rain, unless you have grandchildren. However, the one that the model is wearing is kind of cute, I guess it could be somebody else's cup of tea.
