is a common name for things that serve as clothing for the head (hats, hats, etc.).


Making hats – it’s perfectly safe.

Yes, but it was not always so. Let us recall at least the expression “insane as a hatter”, which has a real historical basis. The fact is that mercury nitrate was used to treat fur or felt, so masters inevitably contacted with mercury vapor, which led to poisoning. But mercury poisoning can cause irreversible damage to the brain, and as a result, the hatterers suffered from hallucinations, seizures, loss of memory, and sometimes dementia.

Wearing hats (hats, caps, etc.) can cause hair loss.

No, hair loss does not affect headaches. Much more damage can be caused by heavy wigs, attached to real hair with tape or glue and sometimes causing a so-called traumatic baldness.

The color of the hat needs to match the color of the clothes.

Yes, it is, but in addition it is necessary to take into account your natural individuality. The color of the hat should match your color. For example, black and white hats are best for dark-haired girls with fair skin. Light-haired girls, whose skin tone is cool light, pinkish-bluish, should give preference to all shades of gray and cold brown (bitter chocolate, cocoa, pinkish-beige, etc.). Hats of coffee color with milk, coffee, cinnamon, sand colors can wear girls with blond hair and skin of warm peach shades.

The shape of the hat must necessarily match the fashion.

Certainly, choosing the style of the hat, you need to consider the fashion trends. However, it should be remembered that the fashion is changeable, and pick up this toilet item in accordance with its facial features. For example, if your face is marked by rigid sculptural features, strict men’s hats and jockey bowlers are for you. The possessor of soft and feminine traits is best to choose panama from a fleecy drape or elegant hats with soft margins.

Panama is a summer and always crumpled hat in which pioneers and elderly people walked.

Wrong opinion. This Panama is a hat from the leaves of the Panama palm tree of Jeepjapa, ideally holds a shape and costs at least seventy dollars, so not every pensioner can afford it. Classical panamas with a cross-shaped top (to be easier to fold) are produced, realized in cylindrical cases, in a folded form.

A real man never drops his ears on a fur hat.

A fairly stable stereotype, following which our compatriots bravely wore in a twenty-degree frost or a cap with a funny bandage at the top, or “snag”, barely covering the top of the head, pleasing the “real man” surrounding the bright red color of the frigid ears. The modern international earflap has completely different characteristics – the top of the fabric, the fur – on the inside of the product, the ears are lowered (protection from frost and wind). And men in such hats for some reason did not look less manly – rather, on the contrary.

Berets are a headpiece for artists.

In fact, much depends on the shape of the beret. It is unlikely that you saw many masters of painting, for example, in an army beret, trimmed on the inside edge of the skin, with a binding bow from behind. Such a hat is more suitable for self-confident personalities who prefer military style.

Caps are worn by intellectuals.

This opinion has long been irrelevant. Nowadays French felt caps are worn by the inhabitants of Paris, and flat tweed caps, especially those sewn by Herbert Johnson, are the most popular in England.

Bowler – headpiece for clerks and gatekeepers.

This is not quite true. Initially, the bowlers were chosen mainly by stockbrokers and bankers.Somewhat later, approximately in the seventies of the last century, English skins (at that time so called difficult teenagers from municipal suburbs) preferred to wear bowlers, white trousers and high army shoes. The bowler has not gone into oblivion even nowadays – these headdresses are made in many countries of the world, but certainly the best – Lock @ Co products in England (felt for them are rolled out of rabbit fuzz).

Knitted caps are suitable only for athletes.

Not necessary. Some athletes put on such hats after the match or race, celebrities choose this head for wearing in everyday life (knitted hats are worn by, for example, Bruce Willis), combining them with a costume, and sometimes even without taking them off indoors. It should only be remembered that, according to the latest fashion trends, the hooded cap should not have cuff-lapels and any ornaments from above.

The best material for a demi-season hat is felt.

Indeed, this material has many advantages: durability, richness of forms, conformity to fashion trends. But there are a number of shortcomings. For example, it is better not to fall under a rain in a felt hat – it quickly absorbs moisture, can lose shape. If the hat is wrinkled, it is impossible to restore it, therefore it will be necessary to observe many high requirements for care and storage. A fairly tough form of a felt hat can sometimes cause discomfort during wearing or damage the hair. In addition, because of established traditions, felt hats have age, and sometimes material qualification, are not combined with every kind of clothing. Softer and less demanding of the conditions of use and storage, the headgear is made from half-woolen fabrics – velor, cashmere, drape, as well as various boucle fabrics (and in some cases it is possible to make a model of a hat, both in demi-season and insulated option).
