DO: Style your hair for the hat Instead of doing damage control after the hat comes off, take a few extra minutes to beat hat hair with a style that suits the hat. Dorman suggests creating two loose French braids starting right above the ear/crown of your head before you put your hat on. "When you take your hat off, take the braids out and you'll be left with soft texture instead of an indentation." Another under-the-hat hairstyle? "Flip your head over, gather all your hair, and twist it into a pretty, loose bun," Dorman recommends. Wear your hair inside your hat until you arrive to your destination. Then, when you take your hat off, give your head a good Charlie's Angel shake -- "your hair will cascade out of the hat with tons of volume," says Dorman.
"You can also use your hat wearing time to create heat-free waves and curls," says Gonzalez. "Try braiding your hair or even using pin curl sets, then place your beret or fedora on, and you just created a cute updo-like hat style. Once you undo and shake it out, you will be left with waves without the time and effort of a curling iron."
