- FACEMASK SIZING
A well fitted mask will be more comfortable and effective. Please take a moment to measure your face before ordering.
- FACE MASK MEASURING GUIDE
Using a flexible tape measure, please follow the guide below. (If you don't have this, use a piece of string or strip of paper held against your face, then measure flat with a ruler).
HATS - WEAR AND CARE
Avoid wearing your hat in the rain, as it will significantly affect its shape and quality.
Place your hat box in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight.
Keep your hat upright in its hatbox and use the tissue provided to support the shape by filling out any empty space such as the crown and sides of the box.
- HAT ELASTIC
Most hats/headpieces have an elastic. It sits underneath the hair, behind the ears.
- MEASURING YOUR HEAD SIZE
1. Using a soft dressmaker's tape, place this halfway down the forehead, just above your ears.
2. Measure around the circumference of the head taking in the widest part of the back of the head.
3. You are looking for the line where the hat typically sits on you, without pulling too tight or too loose - it should feel comfortable.
4. You will want to record this measurement in cm where the tape overlaps.
- HAT SIZES
If you have a smaller or larger than average head size, we can help. Many of our hats can be adjusted to your bespoke size.
Please contact us to discuss your needs.
- PUTTING ON YOUR ACCESSORY
Refer to the website image of your hat and facing a mirror, lean the hat or headpiece against your had to check its position.
If you hat has an elastic, pop this on first. Now holding the hat with two hands on either side, slide your thumbs under each side of the comb.
Push the comb (teeth facing forward!) towards the hair line and down into the hair in a diagonal direction, catching as much hair as you can to help grip the hat in place.
To remove, slide the teeth of the comb/hat slowly backwards (don't lift up).
Tip - adding some hairspray on the area where the comb will sit, will really grip the hat in place.
Try the above a few times before the day of your event, so you feel extra confident popping your hat on and off.
If you have bought a hat from Joanne Edwards Millinery and need any advise, please contact us.
We will endeavour to assist with your questions.
