Hats for Large Heads from Headcovers
If you have a large head, shopping for hats can feel challenging and frustrating—especially if you’re shopping online and can’t try each style on in person. We’ve made things a little easier by thoughtfully curating a collection of women’s hats for big heads. Each of these hats has been tested by our own staff to make sure it meets our high standards of comfort and style with larger heads in mind. Some are specifically designed for larger head sizes, while others offer extra stretch to assure a comfortable fit for everyone.
Hats for Cancer Patients
If you’ve experienced hair loss due to cancer treatment, illness or alopecia, you know that there are some days when you just want to keep your routine simple while still looking stylish. Our women’s hats for big heads provide a low-maintenance alternative to wearing a wig every day, and they’re chosen to address common hair loss concerns.
We’ve designed our hats to offer flattering silhouettes for cancer patients and women with hair loss. Almost every hat in this collection fits closer to the head, which means you won’t have to worry about concealing a receding or absent hairline once the hat is in place. These hats offer complete coverage while staying secure throughout the day, even if you have a larger head. Most of our hats for cancer patients are also designed with extra fabric volume, which creates the illusion of hair below. All of this means that you can quickly top off your look with a hat and get your day started!
Comfort Meets Style
If you’re planning to make a hat part of your daily look, it needs to meet two key criteria: it has to be comfortable and have amazing style! Even if a hat looks great, you’ll pass over it in your closet if the fabric feels itchy, hot, or uncomfortable. That’s especially true if your scalp is feeling extra sensitive as you undergo chemotherapy treatment. When designing our hats, we choose only high-quality fabrics that are breathable and gentle on your skin; we also stick to natural materials such as silk, cotton, and bamboo whenever possible. These simple considerations will help to make hats a welcome addition to your wardrobe.
Hats for Sun Protection
When you consider all of the reasons to add a few hats to your closet, style, versatility, and ease of wear likely come to mind. But there’s a key function of hats that you might overlook at first glance: sun protection!
Every time you step out into the sun, you’re exposed to UV light—which can damage your skin and eyes if you don’t keep them protected. Sun protection is especially important for cancer patients; chemotherapy can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburns, and diminish the skin’s ability to heal. So, it’s a good idea to choose a hat that keeps your scalp and face covered if you’re planning to spend time outdoors. Our selection of sun hats for big heads makes it easy to find a perfectly fitted hat that keeps your skin and eyes safe from harmful UV rays.
Finding Your Hat Style
The toughest part of selecting a hat can be deciding on the right design—especially if you have a larger head that might be more challenging to fit. The good news is, there’s a hat shape for everyone! If you’re incorporating a hat into your wardrobe for the first time, start simple with a slouchy beanie. These super-soft hats are universally flattering and come in countless color and fabric options to suit your one-of-a-kind style. If you prefer a sporty look, select a baseball hat or newsboy cap, which provide additional sun protection with a brim. For more formal occasions, consider a scarf or turban in an eye-catching shade that complements your skin tone and outfit.
