While there are a tremendous amount of options, getting game day air perfect and stress free all depends on one important variable: the weather.

It should be obvious for a hot game, the hair can go up in a ponytail.  For a cold game, you can be a little more flexible by adding curls but leaving enough hair down to keep the neck and ears warm. And if the forecast calls for rain, a hat can be your best friend.

No matter if you choose straight, curly, up, down or braid, the weather report should always play a part in the hairstyle you rock in order to keep yourself from looking a fool by halftime.

Always Carry a Hat

On the hottest or coldest of games, bringing a hat with you can be a lifesaver. Invest in a classic hat of your favorite team to keep the hair in check for hot or rainy games. And when the cold winter games start rolling in, you can’t go wrong with the beanie + scarf combination.

Headbands and Barrettes

Nothing can dress up your hair as quickly as a headband or decorated barrette. And making a custom hair accessory to fit your tastes is as simple as buying $5 in supplies from a local craft store.

All you need to create your own are the materials and big hobby stores (like Joanne’s or Hobby Lobby) are the perfect places to gather your supplies needed such as glue, basic headband/barrettes, and flowers or bows in your team colors. And it’s as easy as gluing the item to the headband/barrette for a simple way to create a custom game day hair accessory that won’t break the bank!

Why the braid is a sports fan’s best-friend

game day hair

For most female sports fans, you are well aware that attending sporting events requires being outside in the elements for long periods of time. And when you are outside for a while, your hair tends to turn into a hot mess if you aren’t brushing it every 15 minutes.

Which is why the braid can be the best friend you never thought you needed until now.

Scouring the pages of Pinterest, you’ve probably noticed several types of hair braids that aren’t the traditional braids you grew up with. There’s the fishtail, waterfall, braid pony tail wrap, angel braid and countless others to name.

The majority of these braids all have one goal in mind, to keep your hair untangled, stress free and out of your face for an extended period of time. Perfect for a sports fan attending a game!
