Hat Hair Advice and Inspiration, Including Products, Techniques, and Appropriate Après–ski
Winter hats are the warm staple of a tough season, a fun way to prolong hairstyles & a stylish way to proclaim how little you feel like catching a chill. Though it is cold, and you don’t even feel inclined to leave comfort, it is an accessible possibility to texturize or style hair that peeks out so that it waves & shines. Take steps to prep your hair & build your style with products if your plan is to remove your hat. The stylists at Crimson have compiled advice on how to style hair for a hat & recover style after taking it off.
A Round Up Of Recommended Techniques & Products, Hat Hair Advice and Inspiration:
Becky: To avoid “hat head” I recommend using a styling powder, such as Haze by Evo, before putting your hat on. The powder will give your roots an instant lift and will allow you to re-pump your roots after taking your hat off. Sprinkle at roots on dry hair and voila!
Danielle, our curly haired queen, says: Once the hat is on, it stays on or I look insane!
Jeanne: I find middle parts to work well when you wear a knit hat because the hair is evenly distributed on either side of your face for symmetry. Even if you don’t normally wear a middle part it can be great for after you take the hat off because you can pop your part back to its normal place and have instant volume and avoid the flat root area that normally comes from wearing a beanie. If you’re not going to commit to wearing a hat as part of your outfit of the day then maybe keep a small product in your purse to combat static/frizzy hair, or flat hat hair. A small bottle of Kevin.Murphy Fresh.Hair could help pump up your root area in a pinch, and a quick spritz of Evo Love Touch Shine Spray from the mid shaft to ends will give you a fresh mid-day do. And if you’re commuting & tweaking the hat all day, pigtails and curls are always a great go-to. I also like to position the had a little furthur back and pull some pieces out around my face for softness.
Francesca: I usually use a beanie to disguise my hair when it should be washed soon. I usually curl the hair that hangs out the bottom and sweep my bangs low and to the side. It’s a cute, cool, trendy way to keep your head warm.
Sarah: Having fine hair means that I am more prone to greasy, flat locks. When it comes to cold weather I have two courses of action: either go for a hat all day (which is not always appropriate) or EARMUFFS! I love earmuffs, they not only are normally warmer, but very cute and don’t flatten the curls or crease the straight.
Stay warm this winter & use our inspiration because staying stylish is always a necessity!
