Hat shaping question
 
Whats the typical charge to get a hat shaped. I havent worn a cowboy hat in a long time and mine needs to be shaped in a bad way. Back in the day the shapers at stores used to work on tips. Is it still the same? If so, what's an appropriate tip?

Use steam from a cast iron tea kettle and do it yourself I have done all of mine

Free. All you need is steam, or even just hot water.

Last one I had done the hat needed a little shaping and cleaning. He spent about 10-12 minutes on it. Dropped a $10 on he counter and he seemed very appreciative.

Keep working with it till you like it. Give it a good brushing first.

Easy to do yourself

Cavender's still will shape for only a tip. I'll throw them a $5 on some simple touch-up work. But if yours is in "bad" shape, may want to slap a $10 or a $20 in the jar lol

I still do it myself, a little steam works wonders.
Adios,

I always did my own, even buying a new hat, I didn't let them do it. I know how I want it. I am picky on my hat. Don't wear one much anymore.

Everywhere I have gone does it for tips, amount depends on how picky you are with your hat lol

Spray starch works pretty good in a pinch
