The Small Print


Hire prices range from £25 – £125 for an agreed period. Payment for the hire must be made at the time of booking.


You will be asked to sign an agreement at the time of booking. If the hat is lost, stolen or damaged (including any dents, fraying, loss of decoration or water damage) the amount payable is the value of the hat plus an extra hire charge.

Credit card details will be taken as a form of deposit and any charges will only be deducted after discussion with the hirer.


If hats are not returned within the agreed period, an extra hire charge may apply. If a hat leaves The Hat Parlour it is considered a hire even if not worn.


Cancellation of the hire of a hat must be made no less than one week before the event in order for a refund to be issued.

Should you change your outfit and require a second consultation, a fee of £20 will be charged.

Hats can be trimmed and customised with feathers, flowers or bows to make them bespoke to your outfit. The cost of which will be confirmed during your consultation and must be paid for at the time of booking. Trimming fees are non-refundable should you wish to cancel your hire.

If you book a bespoke hire and then change your outfit within 14 days, you will be charged for a second hat hire and consultation.

Hired hats can be posted upon agreement. Postage will be via Royal Mail next day delivery (with insurance) and is added to the hire charge. The return postage is the responsibility of the hirer and must be via Royal Mail special delivery insured up to the value of £500. Hats and hat boxes must be returned in the same condition as they are received otherwise a charge may be applicable. All details, payment and contracts must be completed before hats are posted.
