We hope you are fortunate enough to be concerned with something mundane these days, such as that skunk stripe of gray hair visible to all in your zoom orbit. Admittedly, there are far bigger problems…..but still,  we want to share the ways everyone at BA50 is getting to the root of the problem. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist!)

There are many home hair color and root touch up choices, most of which are as hard to come by as a roll of toilet paper. Luckily, it is still pretty easy to find L’Oreal Paris Magic Root Cover Up Spray. It has the benefit of going on in seconds, so it is great for covering a lot of gray hair quickly. Available in 8 shades for $7.15 on Amazon, it is the least expensive solution we can offer.

If covering your roots with temporary hair color seems like too much trouble, we are right there with you. In fact, most days, we aren’t even bothering with our blow dryers. If you’d rather cover your head on zoom calls, for walks outside and maybe all day long, we have some stylish ways to accomplish that.

First up, is the least expensive – we love Headsweats baseball caps. They are adjustable, machine washable and you can slip your ponytail through the back and wear this cap while you exercise. Available on Amazon, prices range from $14-$20

If you don’t already own a rain hat, LL Bean makes a great looking one for $44.95. Wearing it may not make sense during a zoom call, but should you need to get out of the house so badly that you decide to go for a walk right in the middle of an April shower, this is the hat for you.

If headbands are your style, Farfetch.com carries a variety of extra wide Missoni headbands. We love this chic one on sale for $104.

But we also love these washable, moisture wicking, extra wide headbands available on Amazon for the far more reasonable price of 3 for $21.99. This headband keeps sweat out of your eyes during your workout out, while it also hides gray hair beautifully.

Another hat you will love all summer long is this broad brimmed panama, also from Hat Attack for $120 at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Look for cash back from Rakuten and check for other discounts at Saksfifthavenue.com and Retailmenot.com.
