Get Ahead Hats

About Us

Our 10 Boutiques across the country are…

all based in beautiful rural locations and all have the opulence of up market department stores but with a personal touch that the large retailers find hard to rival. Clients are given individual appointments allowing for bags of time and a private consultation so that they can get the right look for their special occasion.

The Get Ahead Hats team are dedicated milliners who understand that comfort and confidence are paramount when wearing a hat.  We aim to take away the emotional angst out of hiring or buying.

Ladies are encouraged to bring their outfit and shoes (if purchased) to the appointment to ensure that the entire look can be created for their special day.

Clients are free to try on as many different hats as they wish, we are there to guide them through the process with our bespoke fitting techniques, advice on styles and shades to suit individual heights and colour tones.

Hats to Hire

Hiring couldn’t be simpler – when you have chosen the hat you like from our on-trend collections by famous designers, Get Ahead Hats’ own milliners and couture labels, we will reserve it for the dates you require (usually 4-6 days) then you can call back and collect it. All hats are packed in lovely hatboxes for easy transportation.

Hats to Buy

For that special occasion why not purchase your own hat. We have a wide range of styles, colours and fabrics… the season’s lavish, richly textured masterpieces or some of our enchantingly delicate timeless classics to boost confidence and add a special memory to the day, often over 250 to choose from – you’ll never tire of wearing.

Colour Matching

No problem getting just the right shade. Hats can be individually colour co-ordinated to match your outfit and/or accessories for little extra cost.
