Let us put it this way – Finding the right hat is like finding the right size of pants. They all look the same, but every pair fits you in different ways. And depending upon the pair of pants you choose, you can either look like a fashionista or a hippie time-traveler from the sixties. So, how do you find the right cap for yourself? It’s simple. You just need the answer to one simple question.
“What is my face shape?”
And depending on the answer, you can easily choose a hat for yourself and spread oomph like Leonardo Di Caprio, Brad Pitt, Beyonce, or Rihanna. To find your face shape, you first need to measure it. Let’s see how to do it.
Measuring Your Face
Measuring your face is an easy process and requires no more than five minutes. The steps involved in it are:
- Use a measuring tape or something similarly flexible;
- First, find the widest part of your face by simply looking in the mirror. Or you can even use the measuring tape;
- Measure the length of the widest part;
- Next, measure the length of the face. The length should be measured straight from the hairline to the chin;
- Compare the length and width of the face.
Determining the Face Shape
Now that you have your measurements, you can easily figure out your face shape.
- If the length of your face is more than the width, then you have an oval face;
- If the width of your face is more than the length, then you have a round or a heart-shaped face;
- If the length of the face is twice as long as the width, then you have a rectangular face;
- If the width of the face is similar to the length of the face, then you have a square or diamond-shaped face.
Now you have found the answer to what your face type is, you can go ahead and find the best-suited cap according to your face shape.
Now, armed with the correct information, you can go ahead and buy the right type of cap without any fear. You can choose between a baseball cap, flat caps, cowboy hats, or trucker caps from capkings. The caps will be a perfect fit and look good on you if you have done the correct measurements. They will accentuate your best features and make you look like the Hollywood celeb you always dreamed of looking like.
Choosing the Right Caps According to the Face Shape
Now let’s look at what cap styles will look the best on you, depending upon your face shape. Let’s begin.
We envy you people with oval-shaped faces. Why? Because this face shape is versatile. Any cap style will definitely look good on it. So, people with oval-shaped faces can choose a cowboy hat, a flat cap, a fedora, a trucker cap, a half hat, etc. The options are limitless! You guys are only restricted by your personal preferences.
Women with oval-shaped faces can accessorize based on their hat color. They can choose matching earrings, necklaces, or bracelets to add to the style. So, go and pick up any cap that suits your mood and top it off with your clothing and accessories.
People with rectangular shape faces should choose caps that can help conceal their long hair by hiding them and creating an illusion of a shorter face. If you have a rectangular face, you can try caps or hats with a wide brim and low crown.
You can go in a fedora, sun hat, cowboy hat, or a cloche. These hats will help hide your face’s elongation and give it a more attractive look. Avoid hats that can add to your face’s elongation, such as tall crowns or beanies, as they will make your face look even longer.
Square-shaped faces have well-defined, strong, and angular facial features. You need to choose caps that can soften and balance them. If you have a square face, you can choose caps with a round brim and crown. Thus, a cowboy hat, cloche, or sun hat is best suited for your face type. You can tilt the hats to one side to add a dash of style and break up the symmetry pattern of your face. Avoid hats with short or no brim.
People with heart-shaped faces have wide foreheads. To balance this, such people should wear hats with medium brims. If you have a heart-shaped face, you can choose a medium-sized brim fedora, beanie, beret, or trucker cap. Don’t choose caps with wide brims, as they will elongate your face and make your chin look narrower.
The diamond-shaped face is similar to the heart-shaped face, with a broad forehead and narrow chin. People with diamond-shaped faces can try hats that go well with heart-shaped faces type. If you have a diamond-shaped face, you can choose beanies, berets, fedoras, and other caps associated with heart shape face types.
People with round-shaped faces need to choose caps that can give a slimming treatment to the round shape, give your face more angles, and distract attention from the facial curves. If you have a round shape, choose a fedora, a flat cap, or a trucker cap.
These are just the general tips or guidelines for choosing caps based on the face shape. Eventually, the final decision lies with you. It’s you who will have to carry the cap with confidence and enjoy your look. While facial measurements and face type are important in choosing a cap, your confidence and comfort, too, matter equally.
So, if you want to follow our advice on choosing a cap, take it with a pinch of salt. On that note, we would like to bid adieu. Until next time! And hats off to you if you manage to pull off a look that is completely opposite to the recommendations mentioned here.
