Hats that are Right on Trend this Year

If you are losing your hair, there are various ways of coping with it and the London Centre of Trichology will be able to guide you through the various forms of treatment for male hair loss.

In the meantime, however, if you are feeling at a low ebb because of your receding hairline, there are various ways that you can disguise your hair loss and even reinvent yourself in the process.

Various celebrities are known for wearing hats – such as Johnny Depp, star of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films and a host of other smash hits. Depp is rarely seen without a hat, ranging from fedoras to beanie hats, and it was even reported in the media that his girlfriend Vanessa Paradis asked him to get rid of his huge collection of hats because they were taking up two whole rooms.

Another famous hat-wearer is heart-throb Jude Law, star of films like 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Cold Mountain', who often wears a fedora. Both he and Depp have been named as among the top 20 best-dressed men in Hollywood. Also turning heads is sex symbol and Titanic star Billy Zane who started shaving his head in the late 1990s and has been snapped sporting flat caps.

In summer time, it is important to apply sun block to a bald scalp to prevent it getting burned by the sun. Another way to help shield your scalp from the sun’s rays is to wear a hat and here are some top looks to take you through from spring until summer.

Here are some of the stylish hats which are favoured by some famous faces. Do note that not all of the celebrities featured here wear a hat because of male hair loss. Some have a full head of hair and the hat is simply a style choice.

Fedora – This felt hat with a brim was originally popular in the 1920s to early 1960s, linked with the era of prohibition and gangsters and worn by stars like Humphrey Bogart on the silver screen. Fedoras look great with suits, but can also be teamed with more casual clothes and have recently made a spectacular fashion comeback, worn by sex symbols like actor Brad Pitt and heart-throb Jon Hamm in his role as Don Draper in American 1960s TV drama series 'Mad Men'.

Trilby – A trilby is a type of fedora with a shorter brim, taking its name from George du Maurier's 1890s novel 'Trilby', after the hat was worn in the first stage production of the novel. It was actually the heroine, Trilby, who wore the hat on stage, but it went on to become popular wear for men. Like fedoras, trilbies have recently made a comeback and can be worn with suits – to add a quirky touch – or more casual outfits. Actor and singer Justin Timberlake is a big fan, while Mick Jagger wore a matching black-and-while trilby and jacket on stage with The Rolling Stones last year.

Flat Cap – Flat caps are most popular in tweed, but you can also get them in many other fabrics. The traditional 'cloth cap' was worn by working-class men in 19th-century Britain and later became especially popular as upper-crust country clothing – but nowadays the cap has been made chic by a younger generation of wearers, such as actor Billy Zane and James Bond star Daniel Craig. Flat caps look especially good with casual clothing such as denim or leather jackets.

Baseball Cap or Snapback Hat– Baseball caps first became popular in the US but are now a casual summer staple in the UK too. An alternative is the snapback hat, a baseball-style hat where you can adjust the size by using a snap fastening at the back. Singer and actor Chris Brown wears baseball caps as his trademark, while other stars pictured wearing them include 'Twilight' heart-throb Robert Pattinson, film superstar Tom Cruise and a host of others.

Bowler hat – The bowler hat is best-known for being traditionally worn by civil servants and office workers, but it was also popular in the American West and Paul Newman wears one in classic movie 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'. More recently, Colin Firth wore a bowler in 'The King's Speech', leading to a surprise demand for the classic hat on the high street.

Beanie Hats – Beanie hats are usually thought of as winter wear, as warm knitted caps to help keep you cosy. However, these are now becoming a fashion favourite all year round for many and a rival to the baseball cap. Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Ashton Kutcher are just a few of the celebrities who have been seen wearing this type of headgear.
