Welcome back to our size chart and measurement guide series! In this post, we’ll be focusing on how to measure your head size accurately. Determining your head size is crucial for finding the right fit and ensuring comfort in hats, caps, and other headwear. So, let’s dive into the step-by-step process!

Step 1

Gather the necessary tools: To measure your head size, you’ll need a flexible measuring tape and a mirror (optional, but it can be helpful for self-measurements).

Step 2

Prepare your hair: If you have long hair, it’s best to tie it back or flatten it against your head to ensure accurate measurements.

Step 3

Stand in a relaxed posture: Stand up straight or sit upright with your head in a natural position. Keep your shoulders relaxed and avoid tilting or angling your head.

Step 4

Position the measuring tape: Hold one end of the measuring tape just above your eyebrows, ensuring that it is parallel to the ground. The tape should circle around the widest part of your head.

Step 5

Measure around your head: Wrap the measuring tape around your head, ensuring it is snug but not too tight. The tape should pass just above your ears and sit comfortably on your forehead and the back of your head.

Step 6

Read the measurement: Look into the mirror or ask someone for assistance to read the measurement on the tape. Take note of the number where the tape overlaps itself. This number represents your head size measurement.

Step 7

Double-check and record: To ensure accuracy, repeat the measurement two or three times. Write down the average of these measurements for your reference.

Step 8

Match your measurement with the size chart: Now that you have your head size measurement, refer to the size chart provided by the headwear store. Find the corresponding size based on your measurement. Remember that different brands may have slight variations in their sizing, so always check the specific brand’s size chart.
