There is a hat to suit every type of face – find out yours


Different face shapes can look even more beautiful by choosing hats that suit each one well. With a few tips, you will be able to determine the best style of hat for any face shape.

Oval Shaped face


This is probably the most versatile and widely recognized as an attractive facial shape. If your face is oval, you should opt for just about any style of hat imaginable, but particularly those with asymmetric lines and narrow brims. Straw fedora hat with feathers, bows, or wide ribbon ties are also good choices if you want to draw attention away from wider cheekbones and towards brighter eyes and lovely smiles. A little cleverness can go a long way when choosing the best hat style to suit round faces.


Think about shortening the apparent length and width of your face by adding height in the form of hats with oblique brims. Incorporate wide ribbon ties or wearing flowers and feathers on one side. This is the classic heart-shaped tapered toward chin facial structure that looks good in practically anything – yet, that doesn’t mean it needs to be hidden away under any old hat.


The oval-shaped face is a classic because its width and length are approximately equal. It makes finding hats to suit square faces pretty easy – find styles that add widths such as pillbox, bucket, or floppy hats. You could also try adorned with many ribbon ties or feathers up high instead of low down, where they will only visually shorten your face.

Long face

This face shape has a bit of both world in the form of length and width, although it’s still considered longer than wide. Hats to suit oblong faces should add some balance by drawing attention to your eyes and mouth instead of only adding width with fedoras or similar styles. A slightly shorter brim that angles across your forehead or a little cat-eye lift is exactly what you need.

Heart shape

The last basic face shape is heart-shaped, including round cheeks, a rounded chin, and a narrow jaw line. And while this shape may be harder to alter with hats, choosing styles that add height, such as military caps, will help elongate the area from cheekbone up towards the top of your head for more definition.

These are some of the most desired face shapes for women. If you have a diamond-shaped face, hats with brims that angle up towards your chin, long ties, or feathers on one side will help create more balance by drawing attention to your eyes. You can also try very wide brims or rounded crowns to add width around cheekbones.

This is considered the universal cuteness factor for women given its short forehead and round cheeks, so hats with volume are essential to balance out this shape. A wide brim will do just fine while adding volume at the top of your head not only makes it easier to wear formal hats but closes in any broadness too.

Hats designed for women should keep shorter foreheads in mind given that most of their hats are worn indoors or under a haegeum – so the need for volume is critical to avoid squashing your face. Adding height to a crown also helps elongate your forehead area.

Hats designed for men should consider many different things, but one vital thing is not to make their faces look rounder or shorter with heavy styles. V-shaped brims and high, broad crowns will help add length towards the top half of your face, as well as keep you from looking like you’re wearing that hat at all since it’s out of style.
