How to Wear a Hat Without Ruining Your Hair

How to Wear a Hat Without Getting Hat Head

Hats can be a great fashion statement, and keeping your hairstyle fresh is easier than you think. Hat hair is caused by the shape and weight of the hat, humidity from your hair, and friction between your hair and the hat. Luckily, there are ways around all these problems. For my hat hair prevention tips, read more.

 

  1. Keep it straight. Curls look gorgeous, but they get crushed under a hat and there's a high likelihood of frizz. So blow dry it, use a straightening iron — I like this one from BaByliss ($43) — and apply a dab of finishing cream to keep the flyaways down.
  2. Keep it slick. A sleek style cuts down on hat hair because your hair is still a little wet, meaning humidity won't change the shape of your style. Use a little gel, like Korres's Lime Styling Gel ($15), to get a sleek look. If you crave volume, tease an under layer and just gel the superficially exposed sections.
  3. If all else is unappealing, keep it braided. Braids are the ultimate hat hairstyle — they keep their shape, respond well to humidity, and always look good.
