What a year 2020 has been. A year of being uncomfortable, a year of growth + a year of change. With the new year approaching + as we come down from the chaos of 2020, let’s focus on beginning 2021 with stillness. Need a ritual for New Years? We gotchu.
Declutter the material items that don’t bring you joy + create space for the great new things [maybe new GGP hats] you will embrace this next year. Consider donating items to a local charity, taking them to a shelter in your area, or have a [socially distanced] yard sale!
Journal your thoughts + reflect on this past year. What did you learn? Are there any 'hats' you didn't expect to wear? What were your highlights of 2020? What was your favorite 'hats' of 2020? Are there any hurdles you had to overcome or challenges you faced? What is a 'hat' you will leave in 2020?
Manifest what you envision 2021 to look like + believe that your thoughts are powerful. Be clear about what you want + put it into the universe. Continue to think about it, however, works best for you. Trust that universe has your back + watch for signs. Last [but definitely not least] always be grateful.
2021 may look a bit different for us all but we hope that everyone's year is filled with stillness, happiness + love. We are SO grateful to start yet another year with this wonderful community. Cheers to starting with stillness in 2021. xx
Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
