Looking to stay fashionable after hair loss? A hat can take your look from bald to bold!

While modern hats are stylish accessories meant to be enjoyed by all, the hair-challenged demographic can certainly benefit the most from wearing a hat. Hats are a quick and easy way to transform a look, and this becomes especially true if you have insecurities about your hair. It's true that any hat will work well to cover missing or thinning hair, but there are a few styles that are exceptionally well-suited for this purpose. Whether you're looking for hats for cancer patients or hats to cover a receding hairline or complete hair loss, we have some great styles that are sure to boost your confidence!

1. Fedora

    The fedora has been a staple of gentleman's wardrobes for generations. This traditional style is perfect for wearers who have experienced hair loss, as its signature high crown and the moderate-wide brim will give your look the extra personality that others may convey with their hair. Fedoras are traditionally made from fur or wool materials and are available in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors. For the purposes of covering hair loss, we recommend the Imperial by Walrus Hats. This classy fedora has a brim that can be snapped up or down to maximize your stylistic choices when styling your hair is no longer an option.

    2. Trilby

      While many things about your personal style are subject to change from day to day, the amount of hair on your head is not one of them. That being said, it's likely that you'll want a comfortable and casual style if you intend to wear hats to cover hair loss often. The trilby is a great style for these purposes. It is slightly less formal than a fedora and pairs well with a casual getup like a simple tee shirt and jeans. A trilby is also very versatile and is perfect for business casual events as it pairs nicely with a blazer over a casual ensemble. The Triumph by Walrus Hats is a great hat for bald men or women as its effortless style will completely cover the head and offer an artistic flair to your look.


      3. Ivy Cap

        The Ivy Cap is a traditional flat cap style that has recently come back into the spotlight. Celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Justin Timberlake have helped to popularize the ivy cap as they have both been seen sporting this trend in the past few years. Ivy caps are traditionally made from wool and offer a classic look that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Ivy caps are a great choice for a simple and casual look, making it perfect for everyday wear to cover hair loss! The Tribeca by Walrus Hats is a standout that pairs classic wool construction with a modern style by displaying an amalgamation of striking patterns including herringbone, plaid, checkered, tweed, and houndstooth designs.


        4. Newsboy Cap

          The newsboy cap has remained a staple of fashion since the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The newsboy cap's unique 8-panel construction gives it a distinctive look that has retained its popularity in the fashion world. Newsboy hats are popular among musicians, actors, and other creative types as this little hat can give your look a big boost of artistic energy! The newsboy has traditionally been worn as a casual style and is optimal for covering hair loss as it can be paired with nearly any outfit in your wardrobe. We recommend the Shelby by Walrus Hats as it is available in a number of colors and designs including the striking herringbone pattern displayed above.

          5. Straw Hat

            Straw is an excellent material for a hat that you intend to wear every day as it is unmatched in lightweight breathability. This makes a straw hat the perfect solution when you need a go-to hat to keep thinning hair covered up. One great thing about straw is that it responds incredibly well to dye and is available in a wide range of colors. The Brighton by Stacy Adams is popular due to the unique flexibility of its straw weave which offers optimal comfort and makes this hat perfect for periods of long wear.
