Shhhowercap, Styledry, Silke, Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Turban
Shhhowercap (£35, cultbeauty.co.uk), the US brand that Cult Beauty brought to the UK, has led the beauty turban revolution. It utilises nanotech, antibacterial and breathable material so no humidity – all the better to protect your hairdo with. It comes in a variety of prints and is washable.
