Wear a hat – or something cuter. It's one of the best ways to protect your hair from the sun's rays. And if that baseball cap is killing your look? Get a turban. Patterson just spent a month in Sweden and says they're all the rage. "I guarantee it's going to pop up over here," he says. "Cool, printed turbans are very fashion forward, and they make you look effortless and chic." You could also opt for a scarf, a wide-brim floppy hat or a cowboy hat. Keep in mind that the sun can shine through certain straw hats, so it's still smart to wear a protective product underneath.
