How an Entrepreneur helped to reinvent the hat industry

Hairbrella, a stylish and fashionable rain hat with a satin lining and hidden storage pocket for travel was created by Tracey Pickett. Tracey is on a mission to empower women to conquer the world without worrying about the weather. Growing up, Tracey Pickett endured long hours at the hair salon only to be greeted by rain when she walked out the door. 

This ominous cloud followed her as she matriculated through grade school to the campus of Atlanta's Spelman College. She tried everything from plastic shopping bags to shower caps but failed to find a product to protect her hair from the rain. After graduating from law school, she entered Corporate America where image was everything. It was then that she stopped searching for the solution in the marketplace and decided to create a solution.

Through a process of countless prototypes, Tracey created Hairbrella, a hat combining fashion and function to protect various hair styles, lengths, and textures from the rain and humidity. Tracey introduced Hairbrella through a successful Kickstarter campaign in the fall of 2016 and is steadily growing her company, spreading the gospel of fierce confidence no matter the forecast.
