How do I change a category URL and redirect all subcategory and product pages in that category?

I want to change my category URLs so that they are search engine friendly, but I want to make sure all my old URLs redirect to the new URLs. I understand how to change a URL and setup a basic 301 redirect, but the problem I run into is that when I change the category URL, all the subcategory and product URLs also change. Although they change, redirects do not occur. I want to make these redirects occur.

In case I’m not being clear, here’s an example:
http://www.domain.com/hats-and-pants.html has been changed to http://www.domain.com/hats.html
http://www.domain.com/hats-and-pants/small-hats.html has been automatically changed to http://www.domain.com/hats/small-hats.html

I’ve setup a redirect so /hats-and-pants.html redirects to /hats.html, however hats-and-pants/small-hats.html does not redirect to hats/small-hats.html. If someone knows how to go about doing this so all the subcategories automatically redirect, that would be great. There are far too many pages to setup manual redirects for.

Cheers,
Jason
