the hat thing - hat hire
Prices range from as little as £25 for a small basic hat or some fascinators up to around £75 for a normal weekend hire. Average hire prices are £38-£45 for a really lovely hat. We also have some extra special hats available for that extra special occasion.
For an extra charge, you can of course hire for as long as you need - for instance, if you are going overseas or travelling after the event.
How it works
Try and chose your hat as early as possible before the event for which you want to wear it. Contact us for an appointment, come in, try on as many hats as you like to help you choose. Once you have decided on the hat you would like to hire, we will reserve it for you and it will be ready (with any additional trimming or amendments) boxed with acid free tissue for you to collect a couple of days before the agreed date.
You pay for the hire of the hat on booking and we ask for a returnable security deposit when you collect it. The deposit is returned to you when you return the hat as long as it is not damaged in any way.
We know that the times you need a hat can be very stressful and busy, so we also offer an extra delivery service. For a small extra charge, we will deliver and collect hats within the St Albans and immediate area.
All hats come wrapped in clean acid-free tissue paper and are packed in a sturdy professional hatbox for protection and easy transportation.
