How to take your own head measurement
Hat Size Chart
Hat sizes are typically measured in inches or centimeters, depending on the manufacturer. Below is a general hat size chart to help you determine the size you need:
|Hat Size||Head Circumference (inches)||Head Circumference (centimeters)|
|Small||21 1/8 - 21 5/8||54 - 55 cm|
|Medium||22 - 22 1/2||56 - 57 cm|
|Large||22 7/8 - 23 1/4||58 - 59 cm|
|XLarge||23 5/8 - 24||60 - 61 cm|
Note that some hat styles may have slightly different sizing, so it's always best to refer to the manufacturer's size chart if available.
Instructions for Measuring:
To measure your head for a hat, you will need a flexible tape measure or a piece of string and a ruler. Follow these steps:
Wrap the tape measure or string around the widest part of your head, just above your eyebrows and ears. Make sure the tape or string is level all the way around.
If using a string, mark where the string overlaps and then measure the length of the string with a ruler.
Record the measurement in either inches or centimeters, depending on the hat size chart you are using.
Compare your head measurement to the hat size chart to determine your hat size. If your head measurement falls between two sizes, choose the larger size for a more comfortable fit.
If you are buying a hat online, be sure to check the manufacturer's sizing information before making a purchase to ensure the best fit.
