Cowboy western hats are making a comeback, not just with southerners and horse riders, but with people living all over the United States. The hat is making such a big comeback because of the music genre known as country music. Country music stars, both male and female, grace their album covers and the stage wearing cowboy hats of all types. As the fastest growing music genre in the country continues to grow, popularity in hats grows with it. Wearing cowboy western hats is not for everyone, especially those who want nothing to do with the industries of country music, horse riding, or farming.
For those interested in wearing cowboy western hats, follow the tips outlined in this article. The first of those is that you should turn the sides of the hat up towards the sky and pull the front of it down slightly over your forehead. This will keep the sun out of your eyes but still allow you to see those around you. Do not pull the hat so far down the front of your face that you have to tilt your head up to look at others. Before you purchase a hat make sure that it fits comfortably on your head just like your favorite baseball cap. If the hat fits awkwardly on your head then it more than likely looks awkward to others who see you wearing it.
If you are serious about owning a cowboy hat and wearing it almost everywhere, do not buy a cheap hat that will fall apart after wearing it two or three times. Instead, spend a couple hundred dollars on a hat that you like so that it lasts a long time and is very durable. Most cowboy hat wearers typically spend close to $400 on a hat, which might be too much for your finances, but one for $200 might not be out of the question. If you are not keen on spending a couple hundred dollars on a high quality cowboy hat then you could invest in a straw cowboy hat. A straw hat still fits the part and is much more affordable than a high-end cowboy hat.
When you wear a cowboy hat, make sure you wear it with cowboy western clothing. This means jeans and cowboy boots, not shorts or Capri pants. A cowboy western hats with the latter clothes will not exactly look right, no matter what the situation or the statement you are trying to make. When wearing a cowboy hat, make sure your hair is not out of control because the hair can really cause the hat to not sit well on your head. Comb your hair so it is flat so it does not push the hat up off of your head. If you have long hair in the back, let it flow out from under the hat. Ladies, do not put your hair in a bun and then try to wear a cowboy hat over the bun. This can cause a very unsightly appearance.
