Ordering Options and other Frequently Asked Questions

 

We offer two options when it comes to ordering a hat: ready-to-wear, custom collection, and bespoke commissions. Below we have broken down each option:

1. Purchase a ready-to-wear hat or fascinator- this means purchasing a hat or fascinator in-store or on our website AS-IS. For ready-to-wear designs, we also offer the ability to "add-on", this would include adding in feathers of a specific color or some other material to help match it better to your outfit. Prices vary for add-ons, please feel free to email or call us with any questions re: add-on options. Click here to shop ready-to-wear designs.

2. Purchase a piece from our custom collection. This is a curated collection of our best-selling hats and fascinator styles that you choose from to be made in specific colors to match your outfit. You pick the style, specify the color scheme, and we make it happen! This option works best if you have an outfit picked out and are looking for a specific match. Browse the custom collection here.

*We cannot guarantee color matches without a swatch of fabric. Display monitors on phones, laptop computers, and tablets may vary from fabric color.*

 

FAQ

- Should I buy the hat or outfit first? This is a hard one! Either option works. If you are looking to make a WOW! statement with your hat, we suggest purchasing the hat first and complementing it with a more "basic" dress (let the hat do the talkin'). If you have a difficult time finding clothes that fit properly, finding the outfit is typically a better option. Once you've got the outfit, we are here to help you find the perfect hat!

- How do I measure my head? We can help fit your hat in-store or watch this short tutorial on how to properly measure (in inches). If there is a hat already made that is too big or too small, we can either stretch the hat (in most cases) or add hat filler to customize the fit.

- Do you offer hat boxes? Yes, we have three size options to fit any hat or fascinator. Click here to view options: https://thehatgirls.com/collections/hat-boxes

-Can you refurbish or add onto a hat that I already have? We are happy to make adjustments and add-on to hats or fascinators that we have made. If the hat was created or purchased elsewhere, we do not.

- Can I bring in my dress to help me match the hat or fascinator? Absolutely, and we recommend it!

- What is the best way to contact you? In general, email is the best form of contact, but feel free to also reach out to us by phone.

- What are your store hours? Due to COVID-19, we are currently open by appointment only. Please call or email us for availability.

- What side of the head should I wear my fascinator on? We typically suggest that the fascinator be worn along your part line (i.e. - if you part your hair on the left side, you would wear the fascinator on the left side).

Shipping and Delivery Options

- UPS Ground is a $35 flat rate for any hat or fascinator. If you need express shipping options, please contact us by email or phone. All shipping expenses are the responsibility of the customer.
