HOW TO DRAW A HAT tutorial step by step

How to draw a fashion hat

By choosing the right complements you can dramatically improve the impact your fashion illustration creates.
Learn how to represent one of the most glamorous accessories – the large hat- in few quick and easy to follow steps.


Step 1

Draw your model’s head, face and hairstyle as if she wasn’t supposed to wear a hat. It is important to draw with a pencil in this stage, because later you will have to erase some parts of the drawing.

Step 2: Guidelines

Pull a diagonal line from the highest point of the eyebrow to about the middle of the ear. Pass through the eye corner.
Draw another line- parallel with the shoulder, slightly below the hairline. Keep the lines long enough.

Step 3: The S curve

Connect the marks from step 2 with a smooth curved line and add length in the lower end to obtain the sensation of the letter “S”.

Step 4: Draw the brim

Close the brim as shown in the picture. The form should make a remembrance of a water drop.

Tip: Try not to displace the lines. Keep in mind that behind her neck they should come together for the outline of the brim.

Step 5: Draw the hat crown

The bottom of the crown lays down in about the middle of the parting. As the head is round, the line should be not perfectly straight, buts lightly curved or as shown with at least two little corners.

Step 6

Connect the bottomline of the crown with the brim. Draw the lines soft and smooth, as the hat is made of textile, and let the “S” curve lead you.

Step 7: Clean up

It’s time to erase everything under the hat that will be invisible for the eye.
Draw a rectangular guideline for the hat’s crown. Make sure you have covered the whole top part of the head. It depends of the model of course, but for best results try not to make the crown higher than the front center part of the brim.

Step 8: Smoothen it

Smoothen the crown’s edges and add some details to the brim. You need just a hint of details, add them with measure.
