Here in Michigan, winter is brutal. It’s freezing, snowy, windy… it’s awful! So all winter long, I’m practically forced to wear a hat, which means staticky fly-away hair. Yikes! I’ve been trying to find something else I can wear instead of a hat that will keep me warm and cozy without messing up my hair, and I’ve found so many! Here are 7 alternatives to winter hats.

1 Warm Thought Headscarf
