As the weather warms up in Australia, sun protection becomes an even more important talking point – especially when it comes to protecting your hair! Here are three easy hairstyles to adopt when wearing a hat.

Loose and luscious waves

Does any hairstyle say summer lovin' more than loose and luscious beach waves? This style can be worn straight from the sand, and looks amazing tucked under almost any style of hat. We love the straw boater hat trend lighting up Instagram at the moment, for an edge of European sophistication paired with being sun smart. What a winner!

Long Low Pony

If your hair lengths are not ready to fly free in undone waves, a sleek, low and long ponytail is another simple solution for under hat hair. Pull your tresses together and secure in a ponytail at the nape of your neck, or to the side if you want to experiment with another style. Spritz the sides of your head with hairspray (our pick is ) to get rid of any unsightly above ear escapees and brush the length of your ponytail to ensure a long smooth style. If you want to go one step further, apply an intense smoothing serum to your hair before drying, like . This little product packs a punch when it comes to controlling volume and smoothing rebellious hair. Incorporate a small amount into towel-dried hair through the lengths and tips in particular, then blow-dry or leave to air-dry before styling.

Textured Bob

The epitome of low maintenance, the textured bob is a staple when it comes to no fuss styles to wear under a hat and we recommend applying a texture definition spray bring out its tousled best. Our stylists use Messy Cliché to get the job done, spraying it through almost dry hair and braiding it loosely before blow drying. Scrunch the lengths to emphasise the desired messy effect, hold onto your hat and head out into the sun feeling protected and powerful!
