Finally... a sun hat that looks and feels great, is rated UPF50+ and won’t flop in their eyes! We know kids love to play and be adventurous – and they don’t want anything to get in their way of fun! Our Originals boys and girls bucket hats give them the protection they need from the sun while they’re adventuring – without any of the annoyances that often come with wearing hats. We’ve created anti-flop brims with a special foam insert that will stay upright even after many machine washes. We’ve made our hats soft and stretchy for a great fit. And for the girls, we’ve added a little slit in our Ponytail Bucket hats so hair can be pulled through.

The Bedhead Originals Ponytail Classic bucket hat gives great coverage to the face, neck and shoulders and is perfect for use in preschools and daycare centres as brim depth exceeds requirements by SunSmart guidelines and hats are rated UPF50+. The comfortable fit and the cooling effect of the cotton helps kids forget they even have them on, which means you can be confident their delicate skin is protected. With deep panelled crowns and a generous stretch fabric, hats will grow as heads do – up to 4cm, giving them plenty of wear at each size and a soft, comfortable fit (which means they’ll be more inclined to keep hats on heads at all times!). For the girls who love to wear their hair up in a ponytail, our Originals Ponytail Bucket hat is their summertime best friend – comfort and cool with a slit for their ponytail or braid to slide through, keeping hair off necks and avoiding the funny bump that usually occurs when hats are worn over ponytails! Sometimes, aesthetics rule! For a more traditional bucket hat shape, try our  Originals Classic Bucket hat.

We recommend children begin their hat journey from the day they’re born to set them up with the skills to being sun safe for life. The younger they start wearing  baby hats or beanies, the better they’ll be at putting a hat on when it’s time to head outside. Introducing hats to older children can be a little more of a struggle. Our Originals Ponytail Bucket hat takes the battle out of it. The best way to get them excited about wearing a hat is to choose a pattern or colour that reflects their personality. We have a huge range of classic bucket hats in fun, stylish prints like dinosaurs, flowers, transport and dogs, as well as bright and cheery colours. In fact, if your child chooses the print themselves, they’ll be much more inclined to wear it without fuss. You can find some other helpful tips and tricks to getting kids to keep their hats on in our  blog post.
