Philip revealed how to make your hair look great under the most common hat styles of the season. including fedora, beret and shearling hat.  You can watch Philip on YouTube or read his comments from his visit with PIX Morning News below:

Hat Style: Fedora Hair

Style: Philip suggests contrasting the angles of the hat with loose feminine waves.

Why This Works: Philip says "loose feminine waves are a great way to wear your hair under a Fedora. This type of hat has very sharp "menswear" angles. This is off-set by the softer hairstyle."

How To Achieve This Look: This type of hair style works best on medium to longer length hair. If hair has a natural wave, simply apply a curl enhancing products like P2® by Philip Pelusi® ReCurl to boost waves and BeachComber to add texture and let hair dry or dry with a diffuser attachment on your blow dyer. If hair is straight, use a big barrel curling iron to add curls, some facing towards and some facing away from the face.

Hat Style: Beret Hair

Style: Philip recommends tucking hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.

Why This Works: A side swept ponytail is a perfect way to wear your hair under a Beret. A Beret has a French romantic look and this feminine ponytail really compliments that. Tuck the hair back into a side pony so that soft strands peek out.

How To Achieve This Look: This look works best with straight or smooth hair. Create a side part and use a bore bristle paddle brush and a hair smoothing product like Tela® Beauty Organics Encore and brush into a low side ponytail at the nape on the opposite side of the part. Secure ponytail and put on Beret. The back of the Beret should slouch to the opposite side of the ponytail. The beret is available at H&M.

Hat Style: Shearling hat

Hair Style: Philip suggesting pulling hair half-way back, then unclipping when the hat comes off to get the hair's bounce back.

Why This Works: Philip pointed out that shearling hats are beautiful and warm but they often crush the hair. A hair half-way up look is a great idea to make the hair look great while the hat is on and preserve the hair for when the hat comes off.

How To Achieve This Look: Style hair as usual and then apply a product that can act as a dry hair setting lotion like P2® by Philip Pelusi® Increase. Then divide hair in half from ear to ear and twist up the crown of the head and secure with a clip. This will work as a dry set. Once you take the hat off and remove clip, toss to separate hair and revive hair with a hair refreshing product like as P2® by Philip Pelusi® RefresHair®. The Shearling hat is available at Wallaroo Hat Company.

Hat Style: Newsboy cap

Hair Style: Philip suggests creating a ballerina-esque bun at the nape of the neck.

Why This Works: Wearing a ballerina-esque bun at the nape is perfect combination with this tomboyish type newsboy cap look.

How to Achieve This Look: Wear a newsboy cap low on the forehead. It should end up covering the entire forehead. Wearing a ballerina bun pulls the hair back off the face opening to face up. The newsboy cap is available at Wallaroo Hat Company.
