A quick and easy beanie
Being a doctor, I like to look cool and be safe so I never travel by bike without my groovy bike helmet. Sadly this does nothing for my coiffure once I reach my destination and I look far less groovy once the helmet is off and the bike hair is on show.
This quick and easy colourful beanie is great for covering up those bike hair disasters and keeps me looking cool for the rest of the day.
