FAQs About Big Heads

      1. What is the average head size? Is my head bigger than average? What is considered a big head? Is a size 8 hat big?
        The average size male head is 22" 1/2 and the average size woman head is 21" 3/4. The one size fits all (OSFA) hats stop at about 23", so a person would find it difficult finding a hat that fits around a size 7 1/2 and above. In the hat world, head sizes over 23" 3/8 would be considered a big head.

        The profile refers to the height of the crown in the front. The profiles for caps for big heads can be structured or unstructured as well. No matter the profile, all of our big hats are made bigger around and deeper in the crown.
        • Low-Profile - this is the least steep slant to the front of the hat and is normally associated with a sport or golf style hat.

        • Mid-Profile - this is a bit steeper slant to the front of the hat and is normally associated with what a baseball player would wear. Additionally, this style hat tends to be a bit of a deeper fit.

        • High-Profile - this is almost a straight up slant to the front of the hat and normally associated with the foam front 5 panel caps.
