The glamorous way to go from hat hair to party hair…
1. Give your hair a good foundation and start with a voluminous blow dry. Pull hair up into a loose top knot, and secure with a small butterfly clip. We recommend a clamp clip to prevent any lines of demarcation in the hair.
2. Pull on a loose fitting hat to allow space for your top knot. Choosing a softer fabric such as cashmere, silk, or angora also helps to keep things smooth and frizz-free. Butterfly founder and master stylist Kattia Solano does not suggest wool because “it so rough and conflicts with the texture of curly and/or natural hair.”
3. Pull out a few random face-framing pieces at the front to add a touch of cool to your on-the-go street style.
4. When you’re indoors, remove the hat and clip, gently shake your hair out and tease at the root with your hands to create volume. For anyone that regularly experiences static, an easy fix is to rub the inside of your hat with a light oil before putting it on.
It’s also beneficial to carry a purse-sized hairspray in your bag for extra hold or touch-ups, especially if you’re planning to make more than one stop or have a long journey to your final destination.
