It all started when I called a snapback a hat and my colleagues almost crucified me for getting the nomenclature wrong. Dictionaries and Google were called out as the argument heated and it soon became an educate Eva on the different types of headgear day.
I reluctantly agreed after a while that snapbacks weren’t hats and also realized that I make the mistake of tagging anything worn on the head as the collective noun “hat”.
For the sake of others who make the same mistake, I’ve compiled a list of different types of head wear and their correct nomenclature.
Here are 13 different types of head wear with the right names .
Base Ball Cap
The Derby/Bowler hat
African Head Wrap (Gele)
