Get Your Newsboy Cap
The newsboy cap was popularized in the late 19th through early 20th centuries and takes its name from the young boys who’s job was to make the final delivery of the daily newspapers. Often, it was a first job for boys and they were frequently seen wearing some sort of flat cap as they delivered newspapers. A newsboy cap style begins with the basic flat cap and balloons the sectioned crown to achieve a fuller look. In the early 20th century flat caps and newsboys hats were used by laborers in England and the United States. They also enjoyed popularity, with those who could afford the luxuries of leisure activities such as golfing. Thus, the newsboy caps truly fill the unique role as the hat of choice for both work and leisure.

Keep Hair Out of the Way
Love long hair, but here it comes again. Another gust of wind, hair tossed into your face and up goes the hand to brush it out of the way. And, if the wind is steady, it will take more than a quick brush of the hand to keep the hair out of the way. Okay, maybe just stop and turn your face toward the wind for a reprieve. That darn wind makes you wonder how much more of the hair-in-the-face aggravation you can stand.
If you can related, by all means get your newsboy hat in the big size and let the extra full crown drape off the back of your head. The plaid newsboy picture on the right shows the hair loose along the neck so it can flow down your back. If the wind gets to playing havoc with your hair, simply tuck it in the draped crown, as shown in the plaid newsboy picture on the left, and let the newsboy hat hold it out of your face.
