Medicus Scrub Cap Size Guide
it's important for all the caps is based on different diameters, specially taking into account the volume of the hair.
X-Small : Best for head circumferences of 51cm or less.
Small - Medium : Best for short to medium length hair with a smaller head.
Medium - Large : Best for medium to long hair or bigger head.
X-Large : This is for lots of hair or a large head with shorter hair.
2XL : This is for elastic style only to fit bigger hair like dreadlocks.
Generally as a point of reference if you measure around your head from the forehead then 55-60cm will feel fairly snug for small/medium. The main difference is the height of the forehead piece. this allows the cap to go further back over the head. So also personal choice comes into it.
Style of cap
We have 2 styles of caps which are more for a preference of if you need to cover all your hair. If you are in surgery this is a must and so if you have longer hair we recommend elastic style to keep longer hair bunched up.
With shorter hair then ties are fine. We have defaulted to calling them male/female styles but they are both unisex depending on the hair.
