Hats are back! Create the perfect hat look

Unpredictable or rough weather means a hat makes for a perfect accessory. Despite being a classy hair accessory, a hat can leave behind dreaded "hat hair". There are ways you can flaunt a hat and still keep the flatness at bay. Here's how you can style your hair and manage a chic contemporary look.

For want of a hat

Hats of all kinds have always made a statement, from wide-brimmed fedoras to British bowlers to even panamas. A hat comes handy especially when you have greasy roots or in-between washes. Stylish and practical, they're the ideal solution to protect and control your hair from the elements.

Match your hat to your hair

Combine a cool hat with a stylish hair colour to add style to the look. Try trendy cool or neutral hair colours like ash and beige blonde this season, adding a relaxed urban look to a hat. Hair experts recommend the Majirel Cool Color range, which offers more than 30 shades to pick from, including both cool blonde and brunette shades.

Wear your hair right under a hat

These days, glam Hollywood waves are best left to the red carpet. Modern street style stars are instead opting for shorter, choppier cuts, like pixies, bobs and lobs. Under a hat, a cut falling to just at or below your shoulder line is best to highlight the bone structure, while drawing attention to your eyes. You can choose between straight or wavy hair, though keep in mind curls make hair appear shorter.

How to prevent "hat hair"?

Flaunt a glamorous wide-brimmed hat, try a trendy matte finish also preventing limp "hat hair". Apply the Anti-Gravity Root Spray from the Volumetry line by Serie Expert for the perfect look. It gives your hair a matte texture and lifts hair roots as it has a blend of Intra-Cylane™ and Hydralight molecules.
