If you’re like me, you like a hood when the time is right but don’t like to wear a coat with a hood when one isn’t necessary. While there are those types of coats out there that have a hood that zips into the collar of a jacket or coat, rare is it that I buy a coat like this or actually unzip the collar and roll out the hood. Clearly, I’m a high maintenance hood wearer, or like the bad boyfriend of hood wearers- I only want one when it is convenient for me. This is why I am featuring Hood to Go as today’s Fab Find. It’s like the booty call of hoods.
Okay, in all seriousness, Hood To Go is a small, compact hood that’s easy to wear under any jacket. It looks great, protects hair and is just as easy to stow away when the sun comes out. Creator of the Hood to Go and a native of Portland Oregon, Susan Hammel, explains that her hair and the rain and her hair have never been the greatest of friends. And, Murphy’s Law, doesn’t it always rain on the bestest of hair days? Hammel realized that all she needed was a simple hood to keep her hair dry and looking good. Because the majority of coats in her closet don’t have hoods, she was always on the lookout for something that would protect her hair when not prepared for wet weather. She thought, “wouldn’t it be great if I could just add a hood to any jacket or coat?”
Her solution? HOOD TO GO. A stylish, water resistant hood that can be worn under any coat. The hood is attached to a small, lightweight vest that is virtually invisible under your coat. Flip up the hood when you need it, flip it down when the sun comes out. With HOOD TO GO, you can wear any coat you want and not risk a bad hair day if it starts to sprinkle.
