The Fascinating History of Hats

Hats have been a part of human culture for thousands of years, with evidence dating back to around 3,000 BC. Archaeologists believe that the Venus of Brassempouy, a 26,000-year-old figurine, depicts a hat rather than a hairstyle as initially thought. Throughout history, hats have served various purposes, from protecting the elements to symbolizing social status. Today, they continue to be a popular accessory that allows individuals to express their style.

The Wide Range of Hippy Hats

When it comes to hippy hats, there is a wide range of options to choose from, catering to both summer and winter. These hats not only keep you cool under the scorching sun but also provide cosy warmth during the colder months. With their vibrant colours and unique designs, hippy hats allow you to embrace your inner hippie while making a fashion statement. Whether you prefer the felt hats, silk hats, cotton winter hats, wool hats, caps, sun hats, rimmed hats, classic floppy hat, the trendy beanie, or the bohemian fedora, there's a hippy hat for everyone.

Embrace Boho-Chic with Headbands

If you're not a fan of wearing a full hat, headbands are a fantastic alternative that adds a touch of boho-chic to any outfit. A headband is a simple band of fabric worn around the head, leaving the top open. It's a versatile accessory that can be worn in various ways, whether you wear it across your forehead for a retro look or as a hair tie for a more practical purpose. Skiers and snowboarders love headbands for their functionality and style, but they are also a popular choice for those who want to add a touch of hippie flair to their everyday look.

Hair Forks: The Classy Hair Accessory

Hair forks can be used in various ways and are suitable for most hair lengths.

With their intricate designs and natural materials, hair forks are a must-have for any hippie fashionista.
