Size Guide Size
it's important for all the caps is based on different diameters, specially taking into account the volume of the hair.
Small - Medium : Best for short to medium length hair with a smaller head.
Medium - Large : Best for medium to long hair or bigger head.
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.
Custom Sizes / Modifications
Custom sizes are available on request. If you need a theatre hat with any modification or different measurements, fabric print or sizes, please don't hesitate to contact us first!
The Story Behind The Hats:
I work in surgery as a theatre scrub nurse and in the past have had to wear disposable theatre hats. The problem with disposable ones is having to throw away hundreds of hats a year after each surgery day ends. Not to mention looking depressing and bland. They are also have no perks like elastic to better fit the head and often slip down or even completely off.
In theatre I wanted to not only show of individuality and colour to patients but an eco-friendly alternative that is also saving the NHS money that can go on more useful things. Join me in brightening up surgery as a celebration of our work to help others and show off your personality.
