On any given day your head is 90% dry shampoo.

Cover things up between hair washings with a classic hat from Gruene Hat Company, which opened today. Cody Courtney has been making custom beaver hats out of his home, and decided to launch an off-the-shelf concept inside Gruene Antiques. The tiny shop is the site of the original HD Gruene bank vault, circa 1904—Cody's team busted it open because no one knew the combo. Shop felt and straw hats from Stetson, Resistol, Charlie 1 Horse and under the radar brands. If you want, the experts will brand yours with a monogram or phrase, then use their industrial steamer to custom fit it to your head. On your way in, say howdy to hats signed by Gruene Hall acts like LeAnn Rimes—Cody is part of the family that owns the Texas institution.  
Pssst—it's the best way to top off your look.
