The Hat Trick

Thursday, May 21, 2015

It looks like I'm asking "but where did all her hair go" in this pic LOL!

I have to admit that hats were a trend that once I went natural I just never thought would be for me, aside from already thinking I looked silly in them. Now having to fight with my hair to even get one on my head sealed the deal for a no go.

But a few weeks back I saw some beauties while I was shopping at the mall on sale and thought..."well if they won't fit on my head they'll at least look good hanging on my wall" (a trait I picked up from my grandfather)

Flash forward to getting a last min invite out while your two strand twist are still damp and no where ready to be undone...what do you do?

Go out looking like Celie with the most unorganized two strands ever...or *looks at wall* see if that big floppy hat actually fits on your head now that your fro is being tamed.

Clearly the hat wins!

This is HUGE for me and I'm sure fellow naturals and we shall call it "the hat trick". 
Two strands not dry? Throw on a hat. 
Old two strands too fuzzy at the root to be seen? Throw on a hat.
Last min invite and now time to take down your twist? Throw on a hat.
Didn't finish the rest of the your braided protective style LMAO? THROW ON A HAT!

Then beat your face and go!

Not only are big hats in style but they make ANY woman instantly look more chic and interesting. Be honest have you ever seen someone with a dope hat and not wondered..."what do they do, how are they so put together...they look amazing"

Yup hats will do that for you, having people think your the bomb...all the while long your a frazzled mess with half your hair done under it.

  1. I love this! Although I am not natural and well I have no hair really left, I still love to see a good hat in a post!


  2. I'm more of a scarf person.. but I really do want to look for a decent hat! Have to have a bit of a search here in London though :)

    Nice post! x
