Part 2: The Best Hat Shapes for Your Hairstyle


Whether you have a short spunky haircut, crazy-awesome curly hair, long straight locks, or a mid-length bob, we promise there is the right hat out there for you. And although men are sometimes unsure about what hat shape is right for them, it’s rarely about their hairstyle or haircut. So ladies, this blog post is for you.

Hats for women with short hair to mid-length hair: Short brim fedoras and cloche hats are great options

Every once in a while we hear women say that because they have short hair, they can’t pull off hats. That’s not true! In fact, short brim fedoras and cloche style hats look amazing with short hair, especially if you have bangs that you can pull out from underneath the hat. Also, shorter brim hats are playful, and you probably have a pretty spunky personality with that short hairstyle. So, it’s actually the perfect match. Cloche hats are also a classy option if you’re looking for a more sophisticated or vintage-inspired look. Cloche hats also pair great with more formal wear and will complement your outerwear game too. Depending on the hat, a larger brim hat might overpower your short hairstyle, but again, it’s all about what you feel good in. If you want cute hats for short hair, start with a shorter brim fedora or a cloche and you’ll see what we mean. You’ll look fabulous with these picks for you!

Hats for women with long hair, no matter the texture: Wide brim and stiff brim hats are your jam

If you have longer hair, wide brim fedora hats are easier to wear because the wide brim isn’t overpowered by your hairstyle or hair texture. Proportionally, it just works. We love when our free-spirited clients have beachy waves or thick curly hair because paired with our wider brim fedora hats, it’s a match made in heaven. If you’re going for a short brim fedora hat and you have thick and/or long curly hair, make sure that proportionally, the hat doesn’t look too small on your head. And, if you’re still dying to wear that shorter brim fedora, you can always tie your hair back. A fishtail braid, a low ponytail, or any other pulled back hairstyle is a great option to ensure your hair doesn’t overwhelm the shorter brim. Fedoras are very versatile because the brim length varies from short to wide, always having a pinched, structured, higher crown. If you want the perfect hat for your long hair, start with a wide brim fedora, wool or straw, and we promise the compliments won’t fall short.
