I am super excited for Race Week at Ascot — Like No Where Else — in June and I have two weddings this summer. I love to wear hats and these events are perfect. When wearing a hat, I follow three hat rules.
Hat Hair Rule 1
I match my hat, your hair and my outfit. Every one has different tastes but coordinating all three elements is soooo important to me.
Hat Hair Rule 2
I make sure to keep my hair mostly straight, since mega-curls will be Gone With The Wind. Think bouncy blowout. I always want some body, since super straight strands can look unstyled. I sometimes ditch the hat!! So, to prevent strands from falling flat, I use a volumizing root spray on damp hair, then use a big round brush to get lift as I blowdry. I backcomb a little bit around, smooth the strands on top and let hair cool completely before placing my hat.
Hat Hair Rule 3
I style my hair prior to hatting. Think of the Ascot or wedding hat as an accessory. I pick my hair style depending on the size and placement of my hat. Every hair is in place before adding the hat to the ensemble.
