In German you call it a “Kopfbedeckung”. (some examples for headgear can be found here: http://www.macmillandictionary.com/us/thesaurus-category/american/hats-and-other-things-worn-on-the-head)
In my teens and early adulthood I used to wear something on my head nearly year round. In the Winter time I don’t leave the house without something covering my ears, now, still. But I don’t wear hats as often as I did. While living in CA, I had a wide brimmed hat, made from straw, so my face wouldn’t get burnt.
I might have to change that habit and find me some cute headgear again. I like how I looked with something on my head.
Hats are worn for various reasons. For ceremonies and rituals, for protection or fashion. Everyone wears them, from baby to grandparents. They were markings of a class to which a wearer belonged and are used to differentiate nationalities, branches and ranks in military.
While there are not many official records of hats before 3,000 BC, they probably were commonplace before that. Archaeologists think that the Venus of Brassempouy from 26,000 years ago may depict a hat. One of the earliest known confirmed hats was worn by a bronze age man (nicknamed Ötzi) whose body (including his hat) was found frozen in a mountain between Austria and Italy. He is thought to have lived in around 3,300 BC. His hat was a bearskin cap with a chin strap, made of several hides stitched together, essentially resembling a Russian fur hat without the flaps.

Elvis Pompilio and Fabienne Delvigne are best known due to the European Royalty wearing their hats.
