(Photo: Move Forward First/Etsy) Plenty of people across the country have gotten a little lax with masking over the past few months, thanks to loosened guidelines and increased vaccination. But the rise of the Omicron variant has changed all that.

The highly infectious variant is now in the majority of U.S. states , just three weeks after the World Health Organization named the strain a variant of concern — its most serious designation. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging people to get vaccinated (if you’re not already), a booster shot if you qualify and to wear a mask in all public indoor settings to protect yourself.

There are tons of options nowadays when it comes to face masks, from disposables to KN95s to fun cloth numbers. However, many masks are one-size-fits all — and if you are more, um, cranially well-endowed, well, that’s not going to cut it.

In other words: If you’ve been blessed with a big head (bonus points if you also have a bushy beard!), the last thing you want is a mask that slides off your nose, chafes against the back of your ears or feels too tight around the chin and mouth. Have no fear — companies far and wide have heard the pleas for larger masks and are now thinking big(ger), with a slew of XL and XXL options.

We found Amazon’s No. 1 bestselling extra-large face mask, with a whopping 74,000 five-star reviews, and this tailor-made XXL face mask that measures 11 inches wide.

We’ve rounded up some of the best face masks for supersized skulls below. Head on down! Look at him stylin’ and (almost) profilin’ with this handsome — and incidentally patriotic — mask.
