Some days your hair makes you think you should reconsider your career for modeling, while other days you’d much rather just rip it all out. Trust us, we’ve been there. Luckily, hats come in many different styles, and many of which are the season’s hottest looks. Depending on your outfit, the weather, and what condition your hair is in, we’ll help you pinpoint which hat style should be your go-to for bad hair days.

Felt Hat

Pretty much any style and condition of hair will look flawless in a felt top hat or floppy hat. Their big size and classic look do wonders for your entire look and go well with a variety of outfits. We suggest either wearing your hair down either straight or curled, or pull it back in a loose, low bun. Felt hats look perfect with oversized teas and sweaters, skinny jeans, and ankle boots.

You may think beanies are cold-weather only, but thanks to the runways making them a fashion statement, we’re pulling them out early this fall. Beanies work well with either loose side braids or your hair completely down. We love pairing stylish beanies with baggy tees or deep-colored flannels.

Turbans are the latest addition to our closets, and we couldn’t be happier. To carry your effortless, bohemian summer style well into fall, cover up your bad hair days with an exotic turban. When it comes to wearing a turban, your hair does best when completely down and loosely curled or with beachy waves. Pair your turban with a maxi dress or a neutral top.
