It’s getting cold and your ears don’t deserve to feel like you’ve just glued them to an igloo and pulled them off all the while still attached to your head, ultimately procuring the world’s worst headache. As such, it might be time to consider a hat. I know what you’re going to say though, you don’t want hat hair and I get it, I really do. Static flatness isn’t much my jam either but here’s a suggestion, why don’t you just instead keep the hat on forever (but when I say that I mean through the immediately foreseeable future)?
They’re hip, they’re with it, they conceal oily hair and in some iterations may have you looking like you live on Bowery, which is also hip and with it.
Now, provided you agree with me, I think we should collectively invest our time and energy into thinking about and subsequently styling the hair that matters which does not manifest at the root and instead falls below the hat. Three chronicles below.
For the Bowery hat (see what I mean?): Conjure tousled, wavy (dare I say, French?) motion to compliment the hat’s knit, slouchy demeanor. I achieved this look using Bumble and bumble’s Surf Spray and small splash of Semisumo. (Alexander Wang hat, American Apparel sweater, Rag + Bone pants)
For the pseudo-Cowboy hat, (though generally, I’m more comfortable calling it the hat that once forced a homeless man to ask me where I parked my horse,): I suggest trying a more dramatic wave but when I say dramatic I only mean it in the same way you probably use italicized text. This one was achieved with a curling iron and Bumble and bumble’s Grooming Cream. I’m pretty sure I also used Thickening Hairspray for volume. (Gigi Burris hat, Club Monaco blouse, Dannijo necklace)
