The Baseball Cap Trend is Turning Your Dirty Hair into High Fashion

The lazy girl's dream: a trend that requires almost no styling. 

Our generation’s style anthem preaches minimal effort and that just-rolled-out-of-bed ease. Bedhead has become not only acceptable but enviable. And sure, we’re also seeing the prime of the strategic contour and pristine eyebrows, but for the most part we’ve returned to a bohemian age where bras are optional and grunge is cool. That’s why the baseball cap trend is the only likely next step down this path of effortless and easy fashion.

The baseball cap trend tells the story of accidental trendiness, of grabbing your dad’s old worn-in cap and throwing it on only to realize you’re now participating in one of the biggest trends of the season. And if we’re being honest, we get drawn into accidental and effortless fashion as much as the next girl. No one wants to look like they’re trying too hard and when the latest in fashion also lets us go another day without washing our hair, we just have one question: Where do we sign?

The Baseball Cap Trend

The true beauty of the baseball cap trend is that it’s basically foolproof. Grab a cap and throw it on over clean hair, dirty hair, curly hair or straight. Wear it down, with a ponytail, opt for a braid or pigtails. This trend is truly customizable and can be worn to your preference.

We do want to note that there may come a time at some point in the day when you want to ditch the cap and let your scalp breathe. For that reason, we’re big believers in using a dry shampoo before putting on the cap. TRESemmé Fresh & Clean Dry Shampoo will freshen up roots that need a wash and do some preemptive work for any sweating you’ll do underneath the cap. Prevent your scalp’s natural oils from making your roots greasy and spritz that dry shampoo in at the beginning of the day.

After that, wear your baseball cap with confidence and thank the hair gods for another trend that enables us all to postpone washing our hair yet another day.
