    About The Guest

    Brittany Anderson is the owner and founder of Adorn Headwear, a luxury hat and accessories brand specializing in extended sizing. During a 2020 trip to Palm Springs, where she struggled to find a stylish hat that could accommodate her hair comfortably in the 105-degree heat. This challenge highlighted a significant gap in the market for individuals with curls, locs, fros, or larger head sizes, who often have to choose between comfort and style. Motivated by her own experience, Brittany launched Adorn Headwear to ensure that style and comfort are accessible to everyone, regardless of their hair type or head size. Adorn Headwear is not just a brand; it's a movement towards inclusivity and quality in fashion.
