FlairHair visors and golf a natural fit
Want to be the hit of your golf outing?
Try wearing a FlairHair Visor, the wacky golf visor that features spiked hair coming out the top.
A buddy of mine with a shaved head of hair wore his blond FlairHair visor to a pro-am in northern Michigan just as a joke, and he ended up being the life of the party. His visor gave him the perfect Ian Poulter look.
When my buddy met the pro-am celebrity involved in the tournament, golf’s No. 1 instructor Butch Harmon, the two bonded instantly.
Harmon, who teaches Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Fred Couples, kept saying “I love that hat.” Harmon, who doesn’t have much hair on top either, put the visor on, took a photo with his cell phone and made it his screen saver background.
I wore my FlairHair, which has brown hair similar to my hair color but with highlights, out in public to see how it would be received. Every once in a while people would smile at me, but no one made any direct comments. When I finally pulled it off, a woman sitting next to me looked shocked. “I thought that was your real hair,” she said. “I was thinking how long it must have taken you to get it to look like that.”
FlairHair and golf seem to be a natural fit. Comedian George Lopez, along with Golf Channel announcers Kelly Tilghman and Nick Faldo, all wore FlairHair visors on camera during the 2008 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Let’s face it: Most golf hats and visors are – for lack of a better word – boring. They’re decorated with logos, but they’re typically in solid colors and pretty traditional, much like the game itself.
FlairHair spices things up. My kids love it. The visors come in camouflage and with flames streaking down the visor, costing $19.99. My favorites are the styles featuring college and pro sports teams. FlairHair is one of those gag gifts that is actually practical and useful. I don’t wear mine every time I tee it up, but when I do, I tend to have more fun.
