Summer is in full swing and most days I can’t imagine leaving the house without one of my hats (or 3!). Here’s a list of my 3 favorite hats for summer and why I LOVE them! Enjoy……
It’s summertime ladies and you want to look cute, timeless and ready for pickle ball on Thursday without skipping a beat. Here are some quick tips on how to wear your visor and look cute this summer.
TIP #1 – short hair
Ladies with pixie short hair I recommend wearing your visor while leaving a few bangs visible or under your visor. First, take your glasses off, place the front of the visor on top of your bangs just above your hair line. Next, with a bit of pressure wrap visor around, at a downward slant, to the back. Using pressure keeps your hair from exploding over on the top of your visor. Next, press and close in the back at desired tightness. Throw your glasses back on. BONUS TIP: If your visor is slipping, it’s not tight enough. Keep at a comfortable level.
TIP #2 – medium length hair and bobbed locks
You have a couple of options here. You can wear your visor on top of your bangs, see TIP #1 for instructions, or you can wear your visor under those locks, here’s how. First, with glasses off and visor in hands, flip your hair totally upside down in a forward motion (and you thought those squats weren’t helping). Next, place the visor just above your hair line, wrap to the back of your nape and press close at desired pressure. Next, flip back up and let your hair fall where it may. BONUS TIP: Grab a hair clip and lift the top of your hair creating a messy but cute look
How to Wear a Visor and Look Cute
TIP #3 – long hair
You have many options here. You can wear your visor with hair down and flowing overtop the visor (see TIP #2) or you can throw your hair into a bun or ponytail. Going messy is fun, too. With ponytail, bun or hair clip in place, press front of visor to your hair line and wrap around to nape or back hair line. Apply some pressure and downward slant when wrapping to the back. Press and close at desired tightness. BONUS TIP: Pull out a few side hair strands. Messy is okay!
TIP #4 – for the sweaty ladies
Do you sweat? Me too. To get the longest wear outta your visor and keep it clean I recommend wearing a lightweight stretchy headband under your visor. Throw on your stretchy head wrap first and then throw on your cute visor. This creates a little barrier between the sweat and the gross sweat. BONUS TIP: To keep hair completely off your face do this: after getting desired visor fit, pull the visor down to your neck and lift back up to desired place while all your hair is above visor.
Your handmade visor is totally washable in gentle detergent and air drying!

One common roadblock to confident hat-wearing is not knowing what type of hat looks best on you. Your face shape and handmade hat go hand in hand.
Confident hat-wearing begins with knowing what face shape you have and what type of hat looks good on you.
So, you tried on a hat that one time, and you thought it looked awful and now you think all hats look terrible on you. Or, maybe your friend laughed at you because they thought you looked ridiculous when trying on a big box store hat. I’m here to prove this all false.
I know you’ve always wanted to be a hat person and don’t know where to start. You’re in the right place, seriously. Hats are an accessory to your already awesome personality and wardrobe – so yes, it’s personal! For some women they can just throw on a hat and go – for others it’s not easy to pick up a handmade hat and head out the door – that’s why I’m hear to help you! Let’s keep going…
Have you ever wanted to try on a cute, handmade hat and think….
- I AM a hat person…regardless of what my friend says
- I CAN wear hats with confidence…that I deserve
- I DO look great in hats all
- I NEED to wear hats more…because I have third day hair often
If you’re not feelin’ the above prompts than, m’dear, you’re not wearing the right type of hat. There’s lots of factors that go into knowing what hat looks good on you. Knowing your face shape is a one of the first steps. Your Face Shape is telling because you want your face to shine and compliment your beautiful facial lines, not fight with them.
Another factor is that not all heads are one size fits all! Ya know that “OS” you see on your big box hat?…yep, one size. You know as well as me – that we’re not all one size – not even our heads! Let’s break the OS standard and get you in a handmade hat that actually fits your head, looks good on you and you’ll shine with the confidence you deserve.
