WHY DO HATS ALWAYS LOOK SO BIG ON ME?

The circumference of a one size women's hat is 57 cm, and the depth of the crown is 4-5" inch.

Petite size hats have smaller circumference and shallower crowns and proportionally smaller brims as well.

WHICH HATS LOOK GOOD ON SMALL HEADS?

Same as with any hat, hats proportionate to your frame look best. If you are petite, pinched crown hats, like a fedora or safari hat, tend to look good. Tall women with small head size look great in a wider brim, round crown hat, such as big brim hats and floppy hats. Ladies with oval shape face tend to look good in every hat style. Often the color of the hat matters more than the style. A hat should match your complexion and brighten your face.
