If you’ve always had issues with buying hats online, we created this article for you. Often hats that we buy online are too small for our hair and head.
It’s super frustrating because we waste a lot of money and time trying to find a hat that is inclusive and fits.
I have a big head (no pun intended) and thick wavy hair. It’s hard finding hats online because they are often too tight and costs me additional money to return due to return or restocking fees.
If you have a big head, you would typically want a hat with a size 58cm or larger (8″ front to back and 7″ from side to side). This is equivalent to a large-size in most unisex hat brands.

Use this hat size chart to get an idea of what size you need. I typically range anywhere between a Large and X-Large hat size.

We stumbled upon SCALA while perusing a craft market in Maui, Hawaii. SCALA offers hats in four different sizes (S, M, L, and XL).
We purchased two hats for $35 a pop and wear them all the time. If you can’t make it out to Maui in Hawaii, you can also find SCALA hats on Amazon.
Surprisingly, lululemon makes hats for people with lots of hair or big heads! They have adjustable straps and even different sizing. For example, we typically go for their size M/L bucket hats that fit like a charm!
#14 Lack of Color
Lack of Color is an Australian brand that makes popular felt and straw hats.
Their hats come in various sizes (S to 2XL) and are a blogger’s favorite brand.
What we’ve found while testing Lack of Color is that their hats run small. I tried a size medium (57 cm) hat and it was way too small for my 58 cm head. I would have to size up to an XL for their hats to fit me.
Cuyana is an accessory brand that makes gorgeous hats. Their hats are moderately priced.
They do not have a huge selection of hats but do offer sizes 56-59 cm in their hat styles.
