Okay yeah, I'm gonna moan!!

Hornpipe hats are like my pet hate in highland!! I think they completely ruin a perfectly good costume, lol!! :D

Dunno about everyone else but I can NEVER get them to sit right - they either fall over your eyes so that you can't see what your doing for the whole dance, or your bun makes them sit so high that you look like you have a huuuu ge head!!

I remember when I was in intermediate I used to dance without my hat and tell my teacher I had 'forgot' to put it on!! It was okay then but I don't think it would be in Premier, lol! :D

Okay, I'm done now! ;)

In New Zealand because we wear hats with our kilts as well as sailors we do our buns alot lower so the hats fit great.In fact in our rules they must sit two fingers above the eyebrow.If you have time and its the last dance of the day try redoing your hair a little lower. Good luck.

My hat fits very well -- but sadly it's a little dirty & cannot be cleaned (gotta complain about something LOL). It fits best when I wear my bun low, but it works with a high bun as well
That said I only used to wear my hat in competitions. When I do shows I dance without a hat > the outfit makes it very clear what kind of dance it is, and I find that the hat makes it unnecessarily austere.

My daughters hat is the right circumference but the strap is too tight. Suggestions on the best way to alter it?

I have my mom's hat from way back when and it fits me perfectly! My sister also wore it.

My mom always French braided our hair, so never had to worry about the hat not fitting! 1 or 2 French braids were always in our hair.

I now have a few Hornpipe hats that I've collected over the past 5 years, and my students can pick and choose which one they will rent out for the year.

I currently borrow one, but luckily, it fits just right, so when I buy one, I know exactly what size to get!

(Well, I hope. I am going to be changing how I do my hair for competitions, and I should probably try it on with the new hair to make sure, before I buy one the same size... I know my band balmoral, which is bigger, is still too big with that hairstyle, so it might be okay.)
