    How do I measure my head?
    Using a flexible dressmakers style measuring tape and place it around your
    head about half inch (1 to 2 cm) above your ears and eyebrows.
    1.. If doing this on your own sit in front of a mirror so you can visually
    check the tape is sitting at the correct level above your ears & eyebrows
    and is sitting correctly around your head. You can also have the tape meet
    at the front of your head so you can read the measurement.
    2.. take the measurement two or three times to be sure you have it right.
    3.. Make sure you don’t have your finger under the tape measure, please
    don’t laugh this does happen :0)
    4.. A loose measurement will result in a loose fitting hat while a tight
    measurement will result in a tight fitting hat.
    5.. If you don’t have a flexible measuring tape you can use NON stretchy
    string in place of the measuring tape and measure that against a ruler,
    though this is a slightly less accurate way of measuring your head.
