I typically use the long tail cast on. Best? That I don't know.

I think we all have our favorite one or two cast ons. You may just have to try a few to see which you prefer.
There are a couple of stretchy cast ons the you might use on a hat
There are also several other cast ons that will certainly work for a hat too.
