How To Measure Your Head

So, you’ve found the hat that you love, but you have no idea what your head size is. Here is how to find out. 

Take a flexible tape measure and measure the circumference of your head. 

The tape should be parallel to the floor, cross just above your eyebrows, and about 1-2 cm above your ears at the sides. Don't pull it super-tight, just comfortably snug. 

If you don't have a tape measure then mark your head circumference on piece of string which you can then measure against a flat ruler. 

Note the measurement to the nearest centimetre; round up for a looser fit, round down for a tighter fit, whichever you'd prefer. 


Done! Now you know your head size in metric. 


And here below, we’ve provided a chart so that you’ll always know your size in different conversions:
