What Type Of Hat Should I Wear

What type of hat should I wear? Should I wear a hard hat or a wide brimmed sun hat? Hats and other head gear have been worn for centuries and for many different reasons. People wear hats for safety, humour, warmth and most of all fashion. Personally I like to wear hats for the simple fact that it hides my hair. I keep my hair relatively short because it is so thick and then pop on a hat so that I look neat and tidy. Other people mostly wear hats for fashion, both men and women are often seen with hats that match their outfit. I prefer the baseball cap style and wear one of these caps everyday without fail. Another common type of hat I see worn often is a Beanie, which I have worn in really cold conditions. I have also been know to wear the occasional Bushmens’ hat and even a Santa Claus hat once in a while.

Funny Hats:

Hats can be a great talking point if they look funny or have a funny saying. Funny hats have been used for amusement since ancient times. Court Jesters once upon a time wore hats with all the bells and whistles, to add to their acts and comical appearance. Today clowns still wear over sized or under sized hats to create a comical appearance. Typically on a day to day basis a funny phrase embroidered on a hat is usually the funniest sort of hat you will see. Great funny hats usually have a witty saying or an interesting comment that amuses you.

One of the most well know hats that are worn for safety are Hard Hats, these hats are a common sight in construction yards and other industrial workplaces.

Mines are one such place hard hats are often worn and I am counted among those that have to wear a hard hat every day at work.

Gardening is one such activity where wide brimmed hats are often used to protect from the sun. In fact hats are recognised as a major part of skin cancer prevention.

A hat is often used in place of a hair net by Restaurant and Fast Food Outlet employees. lots of people including myself wear hats simple to look neat and tidy. Even though my hair is short because of its thickness it often stands up in places and no amount of water or product keeps it down. So I simple adapted to wearing hats as this solves the problem of unruly hair.

Hats known as fascinators are often worn by ladies at events such as Race Day (horses) and other day time functions. Fascinators are often big and showy hats that really catch the eye and make a statement but not all fashionable hats are big fascinators.
