It’s our favorite time of the year! It’s the time where we reflect back on our mission, our mission to promote confidence in other women and celebrate their talents and contributions to society. Even though we celebrate these individuals every day, we wanted to lay out some ideas how you and your tribe can do the same. Small masked gatherings, virtual hangouts, or even just spending time with the women in your immediate family. There is no wrong way to celebrate but, here are some ways we will be honoring our female heroes this year while staying safe.
Women in Business Virtual Gathering
Girl boss? That’s right! We said it. GIRL BOSS! This IWD (International Women’s Day) bring together all the women in business you admire for a virtual hang session. Bounce ideas of how to grow your business off each other, share your stories, and make long lasting friendships. These friendships will not only help you grow your entity but will expand your network of entrepreneurs, which at times can be a boys club (no hate guys).
Support a Female Owned Small Business
This year many female owned small businesses have taken a huge hit financially and are barely staying afloat. Take this day (and everyday) as an opportunity for you and your circle to support these entities and do a little shopping. Win, win! You get some quality made goods while also helping out a gal pal.
Reach Out to a Woman You Admire
Is there that girl where you have your notifications turned on to notify you whenever she posts? Same! At Gigi Pip we challenge you to reach out to this girl and befriend her. We know this can be hard especially for our introverts out there but guarantee, this will not only validate the woman you admire, you will also leave that direct message with a sister. Sisterhood is a huge part of being a woman, so let’s make sure we are actively seeking to grow this family.
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.
