You Need to Try This Model-Approved Combo Before Summer Ends

Victoria Moorhouse

The finishing touch to your beachy waves might be as simple as putting on a straw hat. At least that’s the combo some of the most prominent models in the biz are wearing this summer—and it’s a damn good reminder that hat hair doesn’t have to be the worst. Copying the look couldn’t be easier, either. Just take a look at these pics for inspiration, then shop our accompanying product suggestions to try it out yourself.

By no means did Alessandra Ambrosio invent the concept of wearing a wide-brim hat in the summer, but she’s a known adopter. She even has her own line of them.

To get her piece-y strands, try spraying in a texturizer like Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Perfect Texture Finishing Spray ($28) and splurging on one of the toppers from her Ale by Alessandra collection ($55–$135).

Lindsay Ellingson gave her beachy hair a Kentucky Derby vibe with a floppy hat. Her strands actually look slightly damp, so spray in a generous amount of Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray ($6) to steal the look.

And since you saved so much on the hair product, maybe spend a little extra on that Eugenia Kim Do Not Disturb hat everyone’s been wearing this summer.

Bella Hadid‘s natural texture is pretty much what you’d get after a dip in the ocean. Try adding in a ton of Bumble and bumble’s Surf Infusion ($16), a spray enhanced with oils so you don’t have to worry about dehydrating your hair.

All you need to finish off the look is a boater style hat—Forever 21 holds a stock of insanely cute and cheap options.

With undone curls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s hair is more polished than the rest. Use a curling want to create texture and try a product with a very light hold like Joico’s Hair Shake Finishing Texturizing Spray ($18).

If you’re feeling a fedora, go for it. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with a Panama hat ($39).
