“Backcomb the crown to create that exaggerated lift and height at the crown, fit the headband on, and then split your hair around the shoulders so that it falls down on either side. Keep the strands straight but with a little texture for movement,” says Cutler. When wearing your hair down in the winter, moisture is key, so be sure to use a hydrating oil. Cutler recommends applying it to dry or wet hair, smoothing palms over the hair shaft. You can also use this trick to tone down frizz after you remove the hat.
