While we are out frolicking and having fun it is important to remember that heat rays do more damage to our hair, scalp and skin than the icy winds and freezing temperatures that make us look and feel pale and blue. To protect yourself and enhance your style, a hat is a great option. These four celebs have got their toppers down pat; get tips on adopting each of the pictured looks in the notes.

Chances are you’ll be frolicking and dancing up a storm, which can lead to some seriously crazy hair. So to get your festival style going I’ve picked some of the best braids from the Spring ’15 runway to get you some pretty and even practical inspiration. Styles range from intricate and twisted to loose and casual, click through to style notes to take your pick. –– Michelle Rotbart

Singer Jenn Wasner is most famous as half of rock duo Wye Oak, but she also has a solo act: Flock of Dimes. I saw her perform last week at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA. Jenn was great on stage. She has a fantastic voice, an intoxicating presence, and beautiful hair. Her color is a pale, barely peach blonde that reminds me of cantaloupe. Of course, I rushed home to figure out the formula; get it after the break. –– Laura Martin

Most articles about growing out bangs go something like this: buy lots of bobby pins, wear lots of updos, good luck. As a stylist I will tell you that this is just silly. People wear bangs at all lengths from mid-forehead to chin. Growing out gracefully is about transitioning from one shape to the next, adding texture, and blending your fringe into the rest of your cut. Learn more in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
