My sisters have teased me for my big head my entire life. Though I’ve overcome the sting of adolescent bullying with grace and class (I like to think), I still am left with the task of outfitting myself in hats that feel natural and subtle atop my dome. Sure, I’m no expert on the subject, but if you’re reading this, you likely share a similarly sized noggin—that’s where I can help you.
The key to finding and wearing a hat when you’ve got a big head is as simple as knowing your size and finding one that feels well proportioned to your face shape (click for a more thorough breakdown of that). The circumference of my head is 23 inches (if you’ve never measured yours, go do this now), which means I’m a size large. Though some hat brands don’t offer sizing, they’ll always tell you the measurements so you can rest assured it will fit perfectly.
