We love to channel our inner gypsy and explore the world. Recently we had so much fun at our latest photo shoot dancing and tapping into our inner free spirit that we wanted to share some of the images.
Sometimes my hair looks like I may or may not be a scarecrow especially in the summer. My hair is dry, dull, and doesn't seem to have the ability to do anything but lay flat. Thankfully I have an amazing hat collection to save the day, but there are obviously some places, like work, where they can't save me.
So feeling completely uninspired with my own locks I decided to put together some hair styles that I am seriously drooling over.
Bohemian Braided Bun
We love wearing hats, obviously, but getting your hair to look just right while rocking one can be a daunting task. We decided to share our top 3 hairstyles for ultimate hat wearing perfection. There are many hats that you can wear such as fedoras, boleros, snapbacks, beanies, and floppy hats therefore we picked the most versatile hairstyles that look great with any style.
1. Beach Waves / Loose Curls
This is our favorite way to wear our hair for sure. If you have pin straight hair like we do then this can be achieved by using a curling wand or curling iron. We like to air dry our hair and spray it with dry shampoo to give it a bit of texture. Separate your hair into sections, we like to use bigger sections for a loose and full body curl. Wrap your hair around the wand or curing iron holding the ends, and curling away from your face. We recommend wrapping your hair around the entire barrel, and not just the center. Wait around 3 seconds, and release. After we have curled our entire head we like to flip our hair over and run our fingers through very delicately for a fresh beach look, put on your hat and voila!
2. Low Messy Bun
This is such an easy hairstyle to wear with any hat. We especially love this style with a snapback or beanie. We like the way our hair looks in a messy bun when we have gone a day or 2 without washing. First we put our hair into a low pony tail at the base of our head and separate the pony into 3 sections, and begin to back tease each section of hair for volume with a bristle brush. We then pin pieces using bobby pins in opposite directions around the pony tail , and leave the ends loose for a natural look.
3. Braid / Fishtail Braid
This is the ultimate boho babe hairstyle and looks amazing with any hat. Fishtail braids seem intimidating and hard to achieve but once you master it you wont want to wear your hair any other way. We like to put our hair in a low pony tail slightly to the side and separate into 2 sections. You literally weave the hair back and forth grabbing smaller sections from the outside. A traditional braid will work as well but make sure that you make it as loose as possible.
Choosing any of these 3 hairstyles will ensure that your look is truly complete. No matter what hat you feel like wearing for the day make sure to always wear a smile!
Celebrities and hats are two of our absolute favorite things, so when we see celebrities in hats we get super excited. Wearing a hat can be intimidating at times especially if you have never worn one before, but we are telling you when you add a hat it can totally transform any outfit and elevate your style. Celebrities have mastered the cool "I woke up like this" look that we all try and emulate, so we thought we would put together our top 5 celebrities we love in hats that master this look oh so well.
#5: Kourtney Kardashian
We can't get enough of this bolero style hat on KK! She is perfect in all black and looks effortlessly beautiful and chic. Take a page out of her book and rock a bolero with a plain dress to avoid looking over stylized.
#4: Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba is rocking our Janessa Leone Stephen fedora and it is everything on her. You too can get this "I just rolled out of bed and threw this together" look by pairing a great structured hat with a loose fitting tee and plaid shirt tied around your waist.
#3: Cara Delevingne
It is definitely approaching beanie season, and nobody wears a beanie better than Cara Delevingne. We love how she pairs a graphic beanie with jeans and a tee for an au naturel look. Her laid back and tom boy air is accentuated by her lack of make up and bed head hair.
You had to have known Beyonce would land on our list. She is the queen of "I woke up like this" after all. We just love how she is promoting a positive message with this snapback hat. Her outfit is something we all have in our closet so be like bey and throw on your favorite scarf, leather jacket, and snapback and hit the road.
#1: Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens is the epitome of style. She always looks amazing adorned head to toe in accessories. She is one girl that rarely ever leaves home without a hat, and she rocks the Lovely Bird Biarritz Floppy hat like it's never going out of style. We love how she mixes patterns, colors, and always layers her clothes like a true bohemian babe.
So there you have it our top 5 picks for celebrities in hats. All of the looks we chose are very attainable and can be achieved by mixing what you already have in your closet with great accessories like a hat. The most important part of the "I just woke up like this" look is confidence. If you feel good in what you are wearing that will translate to those around you. So just remember you are never full dressed without a smile ...and a hat of course!
A lot of you probably hear the term "bohemian" or "boho chic" when people describe their own personal style, and this may leave you scratching your head and wondering WTF? So we thought we would dedicate a blog post to this oh so popular fashion genre to help you better understand what the hell "boho chic" really means.
First let us start off by explaining that bohemian style is more than the choices we make when perusing through our overly packed closets, rather it encompasses the lifestyle we live. Boho babes are free spirits and reside somewhere in between dreams. To be a true bohemian you must love the sun on your back, the wind in your hair, and the smell of something sweet in the distance.
Bohemian style is about expressing that lifestyle through our fashion choices. A few of the stand out boho chic eccentricities are layering, mixing fabrics and patterns, accessories, beach hair, and natural make up. Boho babes are all about attention to detail and although their outfits look "thrown together" with ease they actually require a lot of thought. Bohemian's don't try to be matchy matchy and they live outside of those old school Anna Wintour rules of not wearing white after labor day or mixing brown with black.
So next time you are getting dressed and you are looking to achieve that boho chic style stock pile your rings on every finger, wear bangles up to your elbow, throw on your favorite tank, a kimono, a fur vest, and a leather jacket, and don't forget to smile because style is not something you can find in your closet it comes from self confidence within!
