ILA: Snap Back Into Action

We all love having that fresh cut, pristine locks and bouncy curls but sometimes, a laid back simple snap back hat does the trick. If worn correctly it can say "Hey! I'm having a laid back day, but at at any point now I can snap back into action!"

ILA TIP:  Be size aware! Always wear the right size snap back to match your head size and shape. Many sports shops now measure your head size and number you up. Also, try a new colour snap but back make sure this colour compliments your skin tone [and keep an eye out for the Skin Tones edition coming soon to ILA ;) ]

Shopping Recommendation: Try the Topshop tribal print snap back. At just £16 its a fabulous bargain so check it out!

And where would we be without snap backs with an ankara twist. Check out Solange Knowles in this snapback by a designer we recently featured - Babatunde. This is headwear genius in our opinion!
