Caps on to old style glamour

THOSE old enough to remember will recall fondly the old-fashioned swimming cap.

It kept the hair dry and made an eye-catching accessory on the beach.

Now there is a resurgence of these iconic accessories, the rubber cap covered with three-dimensional flowers, as made famous by Esther Williams in the 1940s.

They have been popping up in Vogue and Marie Claire magazines and mainstream television shows such as My Name Is Earl.

A new generation of devotees has been quick to embrace the look.

Just Keep Swimming, Noosa's newest swim shop, stocks the petal cap as well as a wide variety of textured, frilled and turban-style fabric swim caps in a range of textures and colours for women, men and children.

Apart from the obvious protection for coloured and treated hair, these caps offer a practical and flattering solution for those experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatment, burns or other ailments.
