Just as the shopkeeper told Harry Potter, “The wand chooses the wizard…” so does the hat choose you!
It is not an unusual occurrence that someone will come into the shop and say they are “just looking” and don’t want our help. But they go on to try on hat after hat, looking for the “right one” while our sales person is standing by, hat in hand, waiting patiently.
You see, our sales people are trained hat whisperers, and they know how to listen. They can see the customer’s energy and can listen to which hat is calling to them.
Our sales people may ask you a few questions to help narrow your options, such as:
- Is this hat for everyday wear or a special occasion?
- What kind of music do you like to listen to?
Meanwhile, they are checking out your vibe, your style – do you seem to like attention, want to me noticed? Or perhaps you are more subtle, want to hang back a bit?
No matter what your style, from Steampunk to Outback, we have got your topper!
There is an art to picking the right hat – one that creates symmetry and brings balance to your face.
The right hat complements the features you have, accentuating the positive and creating harmony.
If you have a round face, a flat bill may make your face look rounder, so you may want to avoid that style. Tilt your hat back a bit, if it is tilted forward your face may look shorter.
If your face is longer, pick a hat that will shorten the appearance of your face. Perhaps a Fedora, jauntily tilted to the side?
If you are like me and have a square face, well then, that wide brim might be calling to you. Pick a hat with some curve to it to soften the hard angles.
The right hat can make all the difference – it can bring you to the forefront or give you a quiet confidence.
It can also transport you to another realm completely, so tread carefully, and trust the hat!
