Mannequin head for hats

Recommended Posts

I read in a post that someone (can't remember who...) was wondering where to get a head to try her crocheted hats on. Real mannequin heads can be pricy but a good alternative is a styrofoam wig "stand", I have one which I've used to model the men's hats, I bought it for a few dollars at a beauty supply store when I bought a wig years ago but they can be obtained online. Here's an example of a place which sells them for those who might be interested: http://www.magicmakers.com/retail/wigs/wigstand.html

I got three styrofoam heads from Ebay. They were five or six dollars, and if I remember correctly, with shipping it was about $10.00 total.

I got a mannequin head that they use in cosmetology schools to practice hair styling a a garage sale for $2 last year. (It looks like the previous owner dropped out for lack of talent, but it works!)

Ebay, 4 for $19.95 including shipping...but I don't need 4! But is that a decent price even if I don't?

I got four a few years ago, at a local beauty supply store, I think they were less than five bucks apiece. I used them when I did craft shows for displaying the hats and scarves and such.

Checking Amazon I did find a "male" foam head that is a larger diameter than the others. It says 22"...is that a decent average head size? Many of the others I'm seeing the head diameter is small, one comment was that it was too small
