Finally, an excuse to toss your Totes....
An umbrella is more than just a handy little contraption to protect a gal's salon fresh locs these days, it's a walking peice of art too. So why should yours be any substitute? The tres chic designs from Pare Umbrella are not only pretty conversational peices, but they're functional too. Choices include Afro Diva (my personal fav of course), Lace Queen Dot, Glass, Miss Butterfly and Cherry Bon Bon. Did I also mention that it's a great way to make new friends?
...or pick up hotties? ;)

Now, if a large umbrella isn't exactly your thing, check out Urban Outfitters. Their Eyelet umbrella is pretty enough to carry in that Marc Jacob's handbag, and it'll keep your 'do in check too. Plus, at just $16, it's a steal.
