Bought three of these for an event and they were truly unusable so I am returning them. Hard and disc like, they looked like a small plastic plate sitting on the head. Odd little structures, I would not call them a hat rather I would call them a plate.
Had a wedding to attend and due to fine, thinning hair I needed a hat to cover up some flawed areas on my head. I often wear hats but had nothing that would travel easily and not be hot and cumbersome at and during a wedding ceremony as well as the reception. Found this hat and couldn't believe how simple, yet dressy it was. The price alone was amazing!!! Ordered it and got it within a few days. Both the headband as well as the clip attachment were very strong and quality pieces making the hat stay in place. The navy color matched my wedding day attire perfectly. Many people asked where I shopped to get the hat and pants suit that matched like they came from the same dye lot. This little hat has gotten me soooo many compliments Can't wait to wear it again!
Purchased this for a tea party for my birthday and got a lot of compliments!!! It's made of a kind of coated plastic, not really fabric, but it's impossible to tell. The included clip kept it in place but it also came with a headband in case the clip didn't work for your hairstyle.
I bought this for my wife and she liked it, as it was in keeping with the theme of the big company Christmas party we were attending last year (2018). The price was right and it fit her head without issue. However, after the party, we decided to try and use it again for family photos and the black netting (veil?) was driving her nuts 'cause it was really hard to get the hat to stay in place (even with bobby pins) and the netting/veil in the position she wanted. After a great deal of effort, she finally decided to just take the netting/veil off altogether. If not for that, I would have given the product 5 stars. However, for my wife's troubles, I knocked a off a star. Aside from that, I thought it looked nice either way, but I'm not a fashion expert, haha.
The description is a bit misleading as the hat itself is NOT wool felt, it feels like flocked plastic. The bow seems to be felt, though. Mine arrived in a padded envelope and I was quite surprised it was in good shape and not squashed as the envelope looked a little wrinkled. The hat is a nice small size and mine looks like the picture. The hair clip is large and sturdy and grips tight in my straight hair. The headband is sturdy, too. I'm not sure how to 'style' the netting as it's not long enough to be a veil and it's in two pieces with the center open. I got mine to wear to Red Hat functions so I'll probably add some purple flowers or feathers now and then to make it more festive. although I think I'll keep them temporary so I can swap things out. All in all I think it's a good hat for what I paid.
First and foremost I do not understand the reviews complaining of quality issues. It is a well made little fascinator. We are in the age of plastic people get used to it. That being said it is not cheaply made. It flexes with the head molding nicely to the shape . The interior has enough room to accommodate a modest size 50's style hairdo. I appreciated that the gauze was actually longer than the photos allowing me to trim it to my tastes. I will be finding more products in this line.
I bought this for the upcoming Disneyland dapper day and it is very cute and the price is right. Comes with a headband too in case you can't clip it in. I was considering having one custom made but didn't want to spend 40 plus dollars. Now I'm just going to doctor this.
I bought this hat to be used as a photo booth prop at my friend’s wedding. I was surprised at just how pretty it is! We will definitely use it again as a photo booth prop or for a costume. I could see it being use for a stage play as well.
My husband and I went to a World War II dance for New Year’s Eve. I wanted a vintage look. This was perfect. I received many compliments. The clips made it easy to place and it stayed exactly right all night. It was
