When it comes to protecting your hair, an umbrella isn’t enough. Save your blowout or updo from the elements the old-fashioned way: with a rain hat.
My Mammaw made rain bonnets back in the 1960s. She was an elegant lady who was not the type to show up soggy for a social engagement. I still have the hats she gave me when I showed an interest in vintage clothes back in high school. I make my bonnets a little different than hers, to accommodate longer hair.
These days women don’t go to the beauty parlor for a weekly hair set like our grandmothers did. We have salon visits for blowouts, updos and special occasion makeup. And it is expensive. So save that investment with a cute rain hat. On sale now.
