Half hats are a brimless shallow hat that usually sits flat on top of the crown - like an extra wide bandeau. The half hat was created by Lilly Dache, who won an American Designer award for it in 1941. Dior designed veiled half hats beginning in 1947. They remained popular during the 1950s and morphed into variations including openwork half-hats comprised of a wired piping frame with flowers, feathers or other trims.* Half hats are perfect for almost every hairstyle or face shape.* Check out Madge's article on half hats.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE:

  • Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear.  You are measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.
  • Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly and check the number. 
  • If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
