(Source: PacificCoastNews.com, FameFlynet Pictures)An insta-fix for both bad hair days and bad weather is as simple as plopping on a hat. Our best tip: Buy one that works with your 'do, and you may find yourself reaching for these even when your locks look just fine.
Pixie It’s the hair chop heard around the world, and everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Pamela Anderson is jumping on board. Because the hair is cropped so close to the head, it’s best to wear a topper that shows a little bit of your ‘do, so it doesn't look like you've gone full Lex Luthor. That means stay away from oversized, slouchy beanies and gear towards boaters like these from Brooks Brothers and ASOS, pork-pie hats like these from Topshop and Shopbop, or newsboy caps like these from Neiman Marcus or Macy's, that will highlight your cool cut.

If you’re going to leave your hat on all day, try teasing out the part that peeks out below the brim of your baseball cap (like these from Barneys and HUF), wide-brimmed hat (like these from Rag & Bone and Guess), or trilby (like these from net-a-porter and Farfetch), and no one will know you’re having a bad hair day.

Low-hanging brimmed hats like Anthropologie and ASOS cloches, Bloomingdale's and Free People beanies, and Karmaloop and Shopbop fedoras that cover your entire head are fair game here.
