Scrub hats have changed from simple colours, to more bold colours and designs. Earlier models of scrub hats were tied behind the head with a string, or made with elastic. That style of scrub hat is known as tie-backs.


Many scrub hats are now made with a wide front band, encased elastic in the back, and a cordlock. Seams that are serged and turned provide more support and helps prevent fraying.
