Coolibar hats not only express personal style, they protect your precious noggin from the sun’s harmful rays. Comfort is important too. You’ll know when you have a hat that fits well because you’ll forget you have it on!
Here’s how you can measure your head to ensure you have the right fit:
1) Hunt down a tape measure – yup over there in the “junk drawer”- this is the case at my house anyway.
2) Starting at your forehead, measure around your head where your hat would normally sit –about 1/2″–1″ above your eyebrows and about 1/4″ above your ears, then continue around the back of your head and back to your forehead. Pull the tape snug but not tight, as you would like a hat to fit (measuring errors occur from pulling the tape too tightly). Measure to the nearest 1/8″ a couple of times in front of the mirror –smile, say cheese!
* If you don’t have a flexible tape measure, a piece of string (non-stretchy) can be held around the head and then measured on a yardstick.
