The magic of silk and satin is all over the beauty industry right now. Whether you’re sleeping on a silk pillowcase to stave off wrinkles, sleeping with a satin face mask to hide from the world, or sleeping with a satin cap to protect your hairstyle, there are endless uses for this luxe fabric. 

But today, we’re talking about all things hair bonnets, so you can find the perfect one for you if you haven’t tried one yet or if you just need an upgrade. “Made out of satin or silk, [hair bonnets] help keep the hair guarded against the friction of cotton pillowcases as you snooze to reduce frizz and prevent tangles,” says Gary Lewis, founder and CEO of NeoCurly, a hair care brand that also specializes in bonnets. Lewis notes that while satin-lined bonnets are typically just reserved for overnight use, many bonnet brands are expanding into satin-lined turban styles that can be worn all day, whether you’re running errands, going to class, or hitting the town. No matter which type of bonnet you’re looking for, here are a few of our favorites. Shop them now to keep your hair in place, protected, and looking fabulous day after day.
