Quel chapeau choisir en fonction de mon visage ?

Which hat to choose based on my face?

Don't you have a hat-to-head? At Herman Headwear, we want to prove you wrong. There's nothing better than a hat to perfect your figure. Here are some tips for adopting the model that suits you based on the shape of your face.

If your face is oval,

then you clearly have a hat-to-head! The oval face is said to have a "perfect" shape in its proportions. All choices are allowed : capeline, panama, trilby, pork pie, big edge, small edge ... So you can easily find a hat that fits you; the whole thing will be to adapt it to your style.

If your face is round

A fedora, a borsalino or a trilby are choices that can highlight your face. If you have long hair, you can let it hang under the hat which will give the illusion of lengthening your face.  You will choose a hat with a short edge ideally or a hat with straighter lines, as opposed to the rounding of your face. Last tip, if you wear your hat slightly tilted, you can give a feeling of height to your face.

If your face is square

features and a marked jaw? You have to go on round shapes that will soften your features. We'll recommend a bowler hata hat.Ideally, you will choose a hat with medium-sized edges.  If you're a man, the cap is the element that will perfect your look.

If your face is triangular

No, I'm not inventing a new shape for you! A face is said to be triangular when the forehead is quite pronounced and the chin rather thin. For this type of face, the ideal is smaller hat face. The ideal is to wear the hat on the back of the head. Models that are made for you: the loose cap,the panama the fedora.


Having a long face is what?  It's having an oval face but thinner, with a more pronounced forehead. You too can afford a fairly wide choice in hats. Nevertheless, if you want to avoid giving the length length of your face, you are advised to choose a hat with long edge,cap. A capeline or a fedora will be very wise choices.

If your face is short

face, try to bring height with your hat.  You can choose hats with a big cap. You can also choose to wear your hat so as to bring volume to your face. Some shapes that can fit you: the trilby,the pompom cap,the hat.

The most important thing in all this is that you find the right balance between the shape of your face and the shape of your hat. Your face is unique, it is up to you to find the right balance between advice and what suits you best and then above all treat yourself and choose a hat in which you feel comfortable.
