Headwear & Hats from Headcovers
A cancer diagnosis can feel incredibly daunting, and you’ll have a lot to think about during cancer treatment without worrying about your appearance. Hair loss caused by cancer, chemotherapy, or other health conditions like alopecia can take a serious toll on your self-confidence, but the right hats and head covers can help you feel more like yourself. At Headcovers, we’ve carefully curated an extensive collection of headgear for cancer patients and other individuals looking for fashionable solutions to hair loss.
How We Design Cancer Headwear
Our chemo headwear might look like something you’d buy in your favorite boutique—and that’s our goal!—but it’s specially designed with details that benefit individuals dealing with hair loss. We keep these unique features in mind when designing cute hats for cancer patients:
Preventing Irritation: Whenever we add a new item to our collection of chemo headwear, our first concern is comfort. Our head covers and hats are designed with innovative liners and minimal seams to prevent irritation on the sensitive skin of the scalp. This makes it easy to wear our hats all day, no matter what your plans entail.
Providing Full Coverage: Unlike standard hats, the styles in our collection are designed to provide coverage for your entire scalp, including areas near the hairline and at the nape of the neck. Our full coverage silhouettes help to disguise hair loss, provide a sense of security during daily wear, and offer flexibility to conceal the hairline as your hair begins to grow back after your treatment is complete.
Adding Volume: Many of our cancer head covers are designed with extra volume at the crown or the back of the head. This styling works to give the illusion of hair tucked underneath the hat, which provides a more flattering, natural silhouette.
Matching Your Personal Style: Along with the practical design considerations above, it’s important that any hat you choose feels like you. For this reason, we’re constantly expanding our collection to include new silhouettes, colors, and fabrics. Whether you’re seeking a sleek cloche for a night out, a sporty baseball cap for an afternoon with the kids, or a breezy pre-tied scarf for a day around town, we offer hundreds of choices that will complement your personal style.
Choosing the Right Chemo Head Covers
If you’re not accustomed to wearing hats regularly, choosing a hat after hair loss can feel like an especially challenging task. What style will look flattering and feel comfortable? Luckily, we have decades of experience to draw from when helping you find the perfect hat or head cover!
When choosing headgear, the first thing you should consider is face shape. This handy guide will help you figure out which face shape most closely matches yours, and then provide recommendations to find the perfect hat. From wide brims for pear-shaped faces to rounded crowns for square faces, we’ve matched key headwear styles to their corresponding features. Our chemo headwear buying guide provides tips and tricks to keep in mind when buying a hat, to ensure you select the most comfortable and flattering cancer headwear style.
Once you’ve determined the best styles for your face shape, the next step is building a basic wardrobe of head covers. We recommend five key pieces that should have you covered for most daily activities, though of course you can expand your collection to better showcase your personal style! Start with a soft beanie or turban for everyday wear, a pre-tied scarf in a pretty pattern for a sophisticated look, and a wide-brimmed hat or baseball cap for sun protection (which is especially important because cancer treatment can make your skin more sensitive to damage from UV rays). Finally, we recommend a simple hat liner to prevent any irritation from your new headwear, and a sleep cap to protect the skin of your scalp and minimize heat loss overnight. Once you’ve selected those basic pieces, feel free to have fun with additional styles like a chic beret or a playful newsboy cap.
