I have always had this idea that hats were really not for me. Don’t get me wrong. I love hats, but they don’t seem to work for me. You see, my ears kind of stick out, and I always thought of that as a problem when wearing a hat.
A few months ago, I came across a hat that I fell in love with, and I thought I would give it a try. To my surprise, that hat did not look bad on me, which got me thinking. Maybe the problem wasn’t me or even the hats. Maybe I was just not getting the proper fit.
How Should a Woman’s Hat Fit?
In general, a hat should rest one-eighth of an inch above your ears. A quick and easy way to know your hat size is to wrap a string or a tape measure around your head about one-eighth of an inch above your ears. Make sure to meet the two ends of string your using at the center of your forehead and adjust until the string feels comfortable (not too tight and not too loose).
Why Wear a Hat
Wearing a hat can make a huge difference on a sunny day, especially during the summer. It’s not only a way to protect your head and face from the heat and sun, but it also plays a major role in preventing damage your the hair and hair follicles.
There is also the fashion aspect. Designers create eye-catchy designs and add new materials to the always trendy world of hats, making it really easy to incorporate them into your lifestyle.
