Say goodbye to “hat hair” with the classic headband from the Scala Collezione Collection!

Scala Collection, Fall 2013, Callahan Headband with rosettesI 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

    I love this idea – my hair is horrible enough as it is to get it to look decent – I’m the person that will risk frostbite on her ears so she doesn’t end up with hat-head! This sounds like it would keep my ears toasty and my hair looking good too! I love the Luxe Wine too!
