If choosing a headpiece, either a pillbox or something on a band these will fit virtually every head size, however most of our hats are made on a medium hat block, but can come up into a larger size, depending on the individual hat.

To measure your head take a fabric tape – measure and holding the tape about a 1/4 inch above the eyebrows (holding the start of the tape on your forehead) bring the tape around your head – it should not be too tight, or too loose- but comfortable.
(A medium headsize is 22 1/4ins).

Many of of our hats do have an inner pulley system to make a hat fit correctly – however we can reduce the size of the inner band, by using tape – should you have a really small head.

Do feel free to email us at onyourheadbeit@btinternet.com concerning the size of any of the hats on our website, and we will try and help.
