The Velvet Beret is made of light velvet fabric with a shiny surface sheen and is beautifully accented with rhinestones, faceted beads and confetti studs. The headband brim is 2" (5.08cm) thick and is accented with 2mm rhinestones and 8mm confetti studs across the forehead area. The headband brim is 19" (48.26cm) around . The pleated low round upper part of the hat in the center is accented with a circular pattern of beads, rhinestones and confetti studs (see photo sample in royal blue). On average when the cap is worn it covers the head down to the ear lobes. By itself it is not a complete hijab because it does not cover the neck area. The photo shows the cap displayed on the mannequin with a Worry-free Underscarf Hijab Cap underneath which is sold separately.
