Just thinking, with hairdressers shutting and everyone's roots starting to show and styles growing out, not to mention diy hair cuts going wrong, there are going to be a lot of bad hair days happening. And up until modern times people always wore hats or some sort of headgear most of the time, I imagine pre sallons, electricity and modern plumbing bad hair days were commonplace. So why not hide it all under a pretty bonnet?

I hate wearing hats - they don’t suit me at all! If I do wear one they make my head sweat and itch so I can’t bear it! Being of a certain age, I get hot several times through the day too! When me and my sisters are fed up, we will go to a local dept store and try on hats and have a good laugh - that always cheers us up!

My hair needed cutting badly just as the hairdressers closed down. I wasn't going risk it by going there anyway. I'm going to need to put a cap on soon!

During isolation it won’t make much difference - some days my hair gets a quick brush and that’s it! I’ll put a bit of effort in when I have to go out for shopping/exercise but otherwise, as long as it’s clean and fairly tidy, I’m happy. And everyone else should be too!🙂

I cut my own hair recently - it's not great, but I'm pretty amazed that I actually managed to get it level! Unfortunately I look really silly in hats, so only wear one when it's a case of trying to be protected from the sun. Bonnets now .... yes, I think I could carry off a bonnet! Shame I'd need an outfit to match - it'd look very weird with modern clothes!

I managed a patchy grade 3 with clippers - not the first time, but have always been more utilitarian than appearance oriented - which is why I have a neon pink running belt but nevermind. Hats, probably not, but can see handkerchiefs making a bit of a comeback.

The knotted variety to wear on the beach?

:) I had a cold before Christmas, my Gran sent me my great grandfathers, it's huge, could probably put a few poles under it and make it a tent. Just one of the versatile uses, also makes a good bandana, could probably use it like those headscarves grannies used to wear, oh plus it's good at stopping coughs and sneezes - thick cloth so no worries wacking it in bleach. Had a bit of a sore throat and temperature a couple of weeks ago so doubled it up and wrapped it around my face just to try and form any sort of barrier as a precauiton, doubt it was COVID though.

I cut my own hair today which is no big deal as I have regularly cut my own hair for the last 25 years since I realised that however much I pay a hair salon and whatever hairstyle I aspire to I will always, always look like a lunkyara/merino/peruvian/abyssinian cross breed :) my hair just does its own thing like I have blonde frizzy banana ringlets growing out of my scalp in random directions! I remember going hopefully into a salon age 13 with a photo of a sleek, gelled short hairdo I wanted... and walking out looking like a dandelion clock!

or you could use it as a small picnic blanket or towel
