For those of you who don't have the kind of job where you can just keep your hat on all day long, here's a trick for fixing hat hair quick, before anybody even has a chance the matted, staticky mess that's under there. Duck into the ladies' room. Remove hat. Whip out the mini dry shampoo you've stashed in your bag. Lightly mist your whole head, and if your roots have gotten flat and greasy, work more into that area. Then use your fingers to tousle the dry shampoo through your hair until it's not visible and your volume is restored (if you're not too shy, flip your head over and/or stick it under the hand dryer. Mini blowout! It'll help get rid of any creases your hat left). As for static, good old dryer sheets are a smart fix, but you can also mist your hands in hairspray or a bit of styling cream and run them over your head. Even hand lotion will work in a pinch!
