Simply tuck hair, whether loose, braided or twisted, into a slouch hat.

twist and tuck into a slouchy style beanie or beret to completely cover the hair.

Secure with bobby pins. Cover the bun completely with a fully-fashioned hand knit toque or floppy torque.

Wrap a neck scarf over the hair to add a different level of protection from fingers and hands.
