As a milliner you have probably heard people say from time to time "Hats don't suit me!" Or something along those lines... but the truth is... hats are for everyone! It's simply just a matter of finding the right style!
As we all know there are more styles of hats than there are face shapes and so it only seems fitting that one compliments the other! In the first of a two part series we show the first three face shapes, Oval, Round and Long. Here is a little information on the shapes, what hairstyles work best and more importantly, what hat to match!
Streamlined shapes and lines, worn forward. Hats with turned up or slanted brims toward the back or side help to accentuate the face shape. Wide brimmed hats usually work best as the horizontal / sloped lines add a fullness to the oval face shape.
Medium to small brims, buttons or beret style fascinators worn to the forward or on the slant. A simple fascinator can be worn to the side or a smaller headpieces which helps change the angles of the face and creates balance.
Medium to wide brims worn straight or forward. A combination of long lines and classic wide brims will help to reduce the distance between the forehead and the chin which can shorten the appearance of the face. By intersecting the forehead the face is dramatically shortened.
In Face Shapes Part Two we cover Square, Wide and Heart shaped faces.
