Eugenia Kim Hair Hats, £266

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? You wake up late, you absolutely HAVE to leave for work, like, five minutes ago, and there’s nothing – NOTHING – you can do to make your hair behave the way you want it to, so you sigh in frustration, throw on a hat, and call it a day. A Bad Hair Day.

If only there was a way your Bad Hair Hat (TM) could ACTUALLY look like hair! Wouldn’t that be awesome?

It would indeed. And we’ll let you into a secret: there IS a type of hat that looks like hair. It’s called a wig. But if you don’t want to wear a wig (And we totally understand), there IS another option, in the form of these Ehuenie Kim ‘Hair Hats’.

These DO look like hair, but they don’t look like REAL hair. Well, not unless you’re drunk at the time, we suppose. No, the cool (or not-so-cool, depending on your point of view) thing about these is that they almost look like comic book hair, so you don’t just get to conceal your bedhead – you get to feel like a superhero in the process. Who wouldn’t want that, we ask you?

Would you wear one of these? At round £266 each, they’re not exactly the cheapest cure for a bad hair day, so we’re curious to know what you think of them. And if you absolutely love them, and must have them in your life right this very second, well, you can buy them at Louisa Via Roma, who also currently stock a few other interesting pieces of headwear by Eugenia Kim.

    Ugly. But does it mean you have to have virtually no hair? It basically looks like there’s not enough room for skin on her skull, much less hair. Or it would give the worst hat hair ever. Or it would tug on your hair like a swimming cap (Ugh, I hated that. Public pools also suck for: people who pee in the pool, people cannonballing right where you’re diving for money or trying to take a picture, & no shorts – what if you didn’t know there was a pool or forgot a suit. Also many other reasons, I just can’t think of them right now).

    I think they only work for women with very short hair, because

    a) they alone would manage to get their hair under the hat (for example, there’s no way my dry, bushy hair would fit under the cap) and

    b) they like themselves and/or look good without some hair volume around the face.

    If your own hair peeks out the thing is pointless. And then, all women I know who wear a garconne type of haircut do it for ease, because they are sporty, outdoor types without much interest in fashion. I think there will be little or no customers for these hats.
