TIP 1:  Try on plenty of hats to find out which styles, sizes and colours best suit you.

TIP 2: Find a hat that goes with your outfit.

TIP 3: Find a hat that is in proportion to your body type. Avoid large hats if you are petite or have a small face. Avoid small hats if you are tall or have larger proportions.

TIP 4: Steer clear of big brimmed hats if you have short hair.  Long hair can balance out a large brimmed hat and add a sense of proportion to your look.

TIP 5: If you plan to take your hat off, your hair may look a little flat.  Have a mini hair spray ready in your handbag! Fluff up your hair at the roots with your fingers, flip your hair over and spritz it at the roots for a touch of volume.

TIP 6: If you are going to curl your hair, consider adding curls or waves at the ends of your hair instead of from the roots as your hair is likely to end up a little flat on top when wearing a hat.  Some people go as far as pinning their curls in place close to their head while wearing the hat, and then removing the pins in the bathroom to reveal lovely curls once the hat is removed.

TIP 7:  If you decide to wear your hair up, or in a chignon or ponytail, make sure it is placed where it does not interfere with the fit of your hat or fascinator. Low side chignons or side plaits can look beautiful when worn to balance out a hat worn at a tilt.

TIP 8:  Book in for a professional stylist to get your hair looking just perfect for your big event.  We will talk to you about the look you want and we can create styles that are long-lasting and will complement your outfit.

Whatever style you eventually choose, enjoy your day!
