How Do I Avoid ‘Hat Hair’?

Submitted by on November 14, 2010 – 10:31 pm One Comment

In the movies, everyone always has perfect hair when they take off their hat. Why?

They have a full-time make up and hair crew that falls upon the actors like a squad of commandos as soon as the cameras stop rolling.

However, if you want to minimize the effect of wearing a hat on your hair style, here are some simple guidelines.

Always hold your hat by the front and back of the brim to minimize damage to the crown and maintain better control of the hat when putting it on or taking it off. It also works best to put on and remove the hat in the direction of your hair. As most people seem to comb their hair backward and/or downward, it helps to almost back the hat on to your head, with the hat first making contact on your forehead and being adjusted into place as you pull the back of the hat down.

To remove the hat while minimizing its effect on your hair, work in reverse. This time (while holding the brim in the front and back) lift the hat off your forehead and gently pull it off backward until your head and hair are clear.

It might take a little practice (and shorter haircuts often help), but youÔÇÖll soon be able to don and remove a hat without any (or much) impact on your hair.
