Take That, Hat Head!

It’s getting cold, and that’s a great reason to wear scarves. They're cute and fashionable, and they’re a good way to work the plaid trend into your ensemble. We have no issues with scarves. Hats, however, can cause trouble. They muss up your hair and create static flyaways -- it’s a mess. We understand. That’s why we talked to three beauty experts and got these tips, so you don’t have to choose between a cold head and a hot hairdo.

1. Amber Katz, editor of Beauty Blogging Junkie, says: “Coil your hair into a low bun and secure it with a small jaw clip (an elastic will leave a ponytail mark) to minimize any indentation before putting on a hat. To help tame static, John Frieda Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme is excellent. I keep a tube of it at work. It's also great for dry ends.”

2. Jamie Allison Sanders, Editor-in-Chief of The Beauty of Life, says: “The two products in my arsenal are Ojon Revitalizing Mist and Pureology Glossing Mist. Ojon revives locks that are seemingly beyond repair -- bedhead, hathead, you name it, a few spritzes of this and your tresses are as good as new. Finishing with Pureology Glossing Mist sprayed into the hands and then patted gently throughout your strands to give them a glossy sheen.”

3. A FOIHD (that’s “Friend of I Heart Daily”) who works at a major fashion magazine and prefers to remain anonymous adds: “Try dry shampoo, especially one with volumizing properties. To fluff up the unwanted matted-down look post-hat, just spray some dry shampoo at the roots, toss your head around like a Vidal Sasson girl, and you're all set. One I recommend is T3's Refresh Volumizing Dry Shampoo, created by Orlando Pita, a MAJA backstage/editorial hair stylist. It also has a pretty good fragrance to it, just in case you have a stink fest under that hat.”

Ooh, bonus, there’s some sweet smelling advice too. Happy hat weather!
