First, get yourself a tape measure made from a flexible material like cloth, fabric, or bendable plastic. Wrap the tape around your head, making sure you measure above your ears at the area where you prefer to wear your hat. Although it is a matter of personal choice, a good spot to measure is the widest part of your head, as that’s where a hat often fits the best. When you get a measurement, consult the charts above to figure out your size.
TIPS: Measure several times to ensure you’re getting an accurate measurement. Don’t pull the tape too tight; you always want to err on the side of having a little too much room. If you fall between two sizes, we strongly recommend that you choose the larger in the interest of comfort. Head sizes and shapes differ from region to region. The most common male size is 7-3/8 and the average hat size for females is 7-1/4
PLEASE NOTE: Size charts are for general reference only. Fit may vary depending on the manufacturer, materials, construction, and hair style. One-Size-Fits-Most (1SFM) and Adjustable hats typically fit up to XL or 7-7/8, unless otherwise noted.
Face Shape Guide
FACE SHAPE GUIDE
For those with a long face-shape, tall hat crowns that sit high on the head should be avoided, as they add too much height to the face and head area. Crowns should be deep enough to cover an ample portion of the forehead to even out the length of the face. Wide brims can be worn, especially ones that are turned downward.
OPTIMAL HAT TYPES:
Wide Brim, Sun Hat, Beret

Any hat with a medium-sized brim is perfect for someone with a heart-shaped face. The concern in this case is to balance out a wide forehead. If the brim is too large, the forehead will have an even wider appearance than normal. Other than that, this shape allows for a variety of different styles.
Round faces work well with hats that have sharp lines and tall, decorative crowns thatare at least as wide as the face. Asymmetrical brims should be selected, or straight brims should be slanted to create attractive angles. These details all give great proportion and shape to a round face.

For the fortunate people who have an oval-shaped face, the options are virtually limitless. Most hat styles will suit this facial structure, so it's really just a matter of personal choice. Hats should generally be worn straight across the forehead or hairline.
