This Instructable will teach you how impress your friends with a cool hat flip. Hat tricks are a lot of fun and they look really cool. The tricks can be incorporated into dance moves or you can do them when you want to impress the ladies. The move you are about to learn is the most basic, but it can be integrated into a larger routine. The more practice you put in, the better it will look and you can eventually make your own moves.

Time: The move itself will only take approximately one second, but learning the trick will take five to ten minutes before mastery. Read through each step first before attempting the flip. Each step happens quickly and they are put together in one fluid motion.

Skill level: No experience needed, but good eye-hand coordination is helpful.

Materials Needed:
  1. A Hat
  2. A Hand
-NOTE- Flat billed hats work the best. Avoid hats that have curled brims or a floppy crown. New Era hats hold their form and allow easier handling. A New Era hat off the shelf costs around $35.

Step 1: The Grip

Grab the bill of the hat with your hand and hold it out in front of you so that the bill points towards you.
  1. Hold the hat at shoulder height.
  2. Place your thumb on the underside of the bill.
  3. Place your four other fingers on top of the bill.
-NOTE- A relaxed arm and posture will make the trick easier to pull off.
