Every day, The Violet Files receives hundreds of emails and text messages from artists and brands suggesting new essentials to add to our curation. One recent offering stood out from the masses. Jacqueline De Jesu, the founder of Shhhowercap, promised that her chic line of shower caps would banish any ’50s granny associations with the useful but generally unflattering hair-savers. In place of the for-your-eyes-only models of yore, De Jesu has created a sleek turban that is a Brad-and-Angie-level marriage of fashion and function.
IN THE SHOWER: The waterproof material won’t slide around and expose hair or create a crease on your forehead.
AT A POOL PARTY: With various prints and solids from which to choose, you can turn out a different turban for every occasion.
IN THE RAIN: Doubles as a stylish topper in the time of El Niño.
“I love this shower cap—the little rubber strip on the inside makes it waterproof and keeps it perfectly in place on your hairline. I would even wear it out as a turban.”—Ashley Streicher, hairstylist
