Finding the Perfect Fitting Headcovers

Jas Fashion  

With hair loss or thinning hair, apart from finding the right headcover style constructed of suitable material/fabric with a good finish, FITTING should be an essential, indispensable factor. Unless it fits, the headcover will continue to remain uncomfortable and awkward. A good headcover should give you the confidence you need and the feeling of being embraced with a  "wear it and forget it" attitude. Any headcover-induced headache definitely stems from a sizing issue.

How to find the headcover of the perfect fit, then?

Your Head Size:

The first thing you should do is to find your head circumference, that is,  your head size. Different companies may have different sizing standards and measurements.

Unlike other parts of our bodies, the sizing of our heads is more inflexible. Therefore, head size should be more accurate than that of clothing. To ensure accuracy, take the measurements at least twice. Take the circumference of the area where you would like the headcover to sit on your head. For more detailed information, please go to the following two posts.

How to Take Measurements of Your Head Circumference


Choose the Headcover Size:

A comfortable headcover size is typically 1cm bigger than your head circumference.

If a headcover is constructed of non-stretchable material, find out whether it comes with a size adjustment mechanism. Alternatively, a headcover should give you multiple size choices.

For winter headwear, a snug fit is preferable. For warmer seasons, you may find loose fit may help scalp heat evaporate quicker. 

If you select your headcovers from Jas Fashion Online Store, here are some tips to get the perfect fit.

  • If you are unsure of your or the wearer's head size, bamboo hats are the safest option, as bamboo viscose with spandex has incredible flexibility. It allows a hat to stretch usually from 52cm to 60/61cm. Most bamboo hats also tend to fit kids nicely. The range of bamboo hats by Jas Fashion sit comfortably on women's heads, irrespective of their sizes
  • Nightcaps should not be too tight or too loose. Look for a nightcap made of stretchable material which won't give you a headache or slip off your head. 
  • Hats and caps with sweatbands and visors are usually not as size friendly as beanies and turbans. The sweatband and brim/visor of a hat restrain the stretchiness of the hat. Do not compromise your size just for the hat style you like.
  • Make sure you read the SIZING info page for each product and the material composition. 



  • If your head is smaller than 53cm or larger than 58cm, we suggest you switch on the special size filter, which will save you time and hassle.
