People often say that with a great haircut, no hat is ever necessary. Aside from those of us who want to keep our heads warm in the winter, there are many of us who just want to add a little style to our outfit without too much trouble. The way to go is with accessories like hats, hair-clips, scarves, or something else a little more creative.
When it comes to the head, our top holiday pick is the Acne Pansy Beanie. The Swedish-based designers have been producing this same style for years, and it has become a cult favorite among their fanbase. The hat is made of 100% wool, unisex and one size fits all—a perfect gift. It comes in a vast array of colors from soft pastels to rich jewel tones. For so long we have seen the droopy beanie and all of its hipster glory. This season try a new shape (reminiscent of your youth) with an Acne standing beanie.
A few, quick hair tips for dealing hat hair:
- Do not put a hat on wet hair or you risk it drying in the shape of the hat.
- If you are prone to static electricity, spray some static guard on the inside of your hat.
- Never brush your hair after removing the hat. This will only make it worse. Instead, after removing your hat, shake your hair with your fingers, and then add a little product of your choosing.
- If the problem is a little more severe, and you don’t have the option of wetting your hair completely, run hot water in a sink. If you can get some steam to rise, it should help to revive your hair.
If you are someone who goes to the islands for the holidays, a fun gift is the Kool Breeze Solar Hat. The hat is made from woven straw with a built-in solar panel and fan. Yes, we are serious. The built-in fan will keep your head cool while sitting in the hot sun.
For the serious fashionista in your life…
…a trendy but chic holiday gift is the gold, Medusa Tribute Barrette from Versace. The gold tone metal displays it signature Medusa Logo and Greek Keys trim border. The barrette is a cool way to pull the hair back and represent one of your favorite designers.
Keeping on trend for Fall ’18, another great gift idea is the House of Lafayette, leopard print, bow silk headband. This headband is exclusive to Matches, so it is guaranteed to be a special gift with a limited run. Only a select few will ever possess these. This headband is a fun way way to dress up or down any outfit. And these days leopard print has become the new neutral; it will add to any basic outfit and can easily be paired with plaid, florals, and even camouflage. Of course, silk is great for any hair texture. So our last great gift idea this holiday season is a silk headscarf. Tori Burch has many options in a silk twill. They come in a wide variety of colors and prints, and are the perfect size to wear as a neckerchief, as well.
Other than some fitted hats such as fedoras and cloches, most hair accessories are one size fits all. These can all be a meaningful and thoughtful gifts without too much stress or effort. Each of these will say, “I love you” more than a vase or toaster oven.
If you want to give something less material and say…
…”Not only do I love you, but I also know you,” the best kind of gift you can give during the Holiday Season is the gift of beauty. When it comes to personal care and grooming, a good haircut is the foundation.
