Perfect for when you want to be little miss chic; magic for covering up a bad hair day; fabulous for when you don’t want to think about it, hats are cool and funky and fun. And fashion blogger, MaryAlice M., shows us how even a fedora can be made feminine. The key to wearing a floppy or bucket or rounded hat is to create some wavy texture in the hairstyle, and let it fall out of the hat in a casual yet elegant way.

We love a modern, graduated razor-cut bob with a soft A-symmetrical line, and this style shows why. Cut into an angular shape to suit this Victoria’s strong, pretty features, it sits just below the jaw, making a perfect frame for her face. Notice how the strong graduation creates height and volume at the crown –– a sure sign of a great cut. Shimmering tones, from espresso to caramel, add nice depth and dimension throughout the shape and style. Graduated bobs are a great option for thick heads of hair because the cut creates looseness, swing and movement for tresses that are normally weighed down by their thickness.

Like a phoenix from a forties film star flame, Harper’s Bazaar, Romania, gives new life to the Hollywood glamor wave. This inspired romantic, shoulder-grazing shape is a brushed out set with a deep, stylistic side-part. It even manages to be on trend. Notice how the hair drops straight down from the crown, only taking on the ‘S’ shaped curves about halfway down the hair shaft –– a look aligned with the trendy beach waves and textured, seventies-inspired styles that are fashion’s new zeitgeist.
