The visor is the go-to headpiece for most sportsmen and women, especially tennis players. But it is also great if you want to go for a 90s look. The visor sits on your head, leaving the top of your head exposed. Find out more about this sporty trend.
A visor, but what material?
For a long time visors were made out of plastic, with toweling versions available for sports players. Today you can find them made out of more eco-friendly, chic materials such as raffia and straw. But stick to plastic if you’re after that glamorous, 90s look!
The visor on loose hair
. The visor protects your eyes and forehead without hiding your hair, so don’t forget to style it! It won’t take much work. Leave your hair down, straight or curly; and create a neat centre parting. Then, simply put on your visor, making sure it rests mid-way down your forehead. Why not apply a hair serum
to add extra shine.
The visor with an up-do
. Wearing a visor gives you a casual, sporty look without making it seem like you haven’t made an effort. There is no need to go for sophisticated, overly-complicated up-dos. Opt for a high, straight ponytail and, if your hair is long enough, plait it for a more romantic effect. Spray a layer of hairspray to keep it in place.
The right look to go with it
. For a sporty, chic look, opt for pleated skirts, waisted shorts, open-toe shoes and baggy tops. For a 90s revival, go for flat shoes and skinny jeans with a sweater on top, concentrating on extra details such as cut-out lace. Or, for an extra girly look, choose a visor with soft colours and complement it with a tropical or pastel-print dress.
