Which American Style of Hat Suits You Best?

your head meaning that you have a rounded appearance when viewed from the front.

If you have a long shaped head, then you have a narrow forehead and it tapers towards the back of your head. If you cannot tell what your head shape is, look at yourself in the mirror with your hair up and use a soft tape measure to take the width either side of your face just above your ears. You can then compare the measurement to the chart provided.

Which Hat Shape Suits Your Head Type?

A hat that is balanced with your head shape will look great and flatter your face. Here are our top three hat shapes for you to choose from:

Cowboy hats, newsboy caps and other larger styles suit a round shaped head as they are balanced at the top. If you have a round shaped head these styles will be perfect for you if they are fitted properly.

Rounder hats with square or rectangular brims tend to suit longer shaped heads best, particularly newsboy caps and bucket hats as they balance out your face shape.

Your Best Hat Colors?

Choosing the right color for your skin tone is very important to make sure you look great in your new hat. If your skin tone is warm (yellow or golden undertones) then you should avoid colors like blue, pink and green as they will wash you out. Instead opt for cool colors like reds, burgundy, orange, purple and brown. If your skin is cool (pink or blue undertones) then you should avoid wearing warm colors as they will cause you to look flushed. Instead choose cold colors like black, grey, silver and white.

If you are not sure what your skin tone is, take a look at the inside of your forearm – does it have more pink or blue undertones? If you are not sure which you have then view the color of your veins. If they appear more green, then you tend to burn in the sun (pink undertones) and if they appear more blue then you can easily (yellow or golden undertones).

Leather hats tend to look great with all skin tones especially browns, tans and darker shades.

Your Best Hat Style?

The right style of hat for your head and face shape will ensure you look your best and feel confident in it. Slouch hats tend to be a popular style as they suit most head and face shapes. If you have a long shaped head, then it is best to avoid beanies or bucket hats that sit high on your head as this will elongate your face. Instead choose shorter brim styles like caps, newsboy caps and fedoras which are much more flattering for a long shaped head.

Fedoras look great on both round and long shaped heads as they can be worn with or without the brim angled down depending on whether you want a more formal style or something casual. As mentioned before, make sure whichever hat you choose is fitted properly to ensure it suits your shape.

You should always take care when choosing your hat size. Make sure you try on the same style in different sizes to ensure you are choosing the right fit for your head. Always make sure there is space between the edge of the hat and your forehead allowing 1/2″ – 1″ of space depending on how snugly you want it.

For newsboy caps, bucket hats and fedoras it is also important to make sure you can fit two fingers between the edge of the hat and your head. If the hat sits too low on your head or covers your eyes, then it is either too large or has the wrong style for you – try another one instead!

Keep your new hat clean and store it properly to keep it looking great for years to come.
