Prevent Royal Hat Hair!
Even if you’re not going to the royal wedding, here’s some tips to keep you and your hair looking regal.
Okay, so maybe you’re not going to be in London this Friday for the wedding. If you are, can we come with you? Ahem, whether you’re going to this wedding or have an event in your future, here are some tips from Emmy winning Entertainment Tonight stylist Bobby H. Grayson on how to prevent dreaded hat hair and look at stunning as Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Middleton and Princess Beatrice of York at your next event.
1. Create the right hairstyle.
Bobby says, “When wearing a bold statement hat or hairpiece, you want to make sure that hair is left in a subtle style that won’t overpower your look. 2 styles I’d suggest are a low chignon or a low ponytail. Both looks are easy to achieve and will keep hair neatly pulled away from the face so that your hat becomes the focal point of your look.”

2. Frame your face.
Bobby suggests “Be sure to lightly comb the front and crown of the head to achieve a smooth, sleek style. Whether hair is pulled back or left down you’ll want to ensure strands are in place before securing your hat or hairpiece.”

3. Prevent frizz
The last thing you want after styling your hair is flyaways or frizz. Before you put on your hat or fascinator, spray your ‘do lightly with hairspray. The spray will keep your hair sleek and stylish. Try Rusk’s W8less Plus shaping and control spray ($12.99, drugstore.com) has a humidity resistant formula to stop hair from misbehaving even in the stickiest weather.
