Hair getting unruly, to put it mildly? If you’re anything like me, it’s becoming more apparent, by the hour, that I should’ve had a goddamn haircut pre-this situ.

Dilemma: Cutting your hair at home is not a wise option (fact) and we have to wait potential eons until we can see our stylist again. And, the major kicker is, all of a sudden it’s Level 3 and we can venture out in public a little more. Solution: It’s okay though, I’ve devised a cunning plan. Just pop a hat on. See my favourite recommendations, available to buy online right now.
