I hate “hat hair!” My locks are difficult enough to wrangle on a good day, especially with static and flyaways in the cold weather. I have to be careful in my hat choices, because, if I squash it down with the wrong type in the morning, I pay the price for the rest of the day.
A few years back, I took to wearing ski-headbands when I was wearing casual clothes, in lieu of a full coverage hat. They kept my ears nice and toasty and, because I pulled all of my hair back, it actually looked better than when I started.
Alas, a ski headband is simply not appropriate when wearing high-heeled boots or a fur-trimmed, floor grazing coat. So, I had to choose: Freeze or wear my hair in low pony under a hat.
But now, I have a new option that will keep my hair looking good, plus is dressy enough to wear to work. It’s the new rosette-embellished from the Scala Collezione Collection!
The headband has a sassy, 1920’s Great Gatsby feel, but is elegant enough to wear with a long coat, suit or dress, and heels. Crafted from boiled wool in an eco-friendly process that eliminates the traditional itchiness of wool, the headband is extremely soft, pliable and warm. Best of all – no more “hat hair!”
There are five elegant colors in the Collection (pictured) including classic black, chic charcoal, simple ivory, luxe wine (my personal pick), and rich chocolate. Retail $30
