How to Measure Your Head for Wigs?

October 13, 2020

The way your wig fits your head is very important. A good comfortable fit is necessary if you would like to wear your wig for a extended amount of time. For your wig to look, fit and feel it's best, you'll want to take your head measurement first. This is a straightforward procedure that will ensure your wig measurements are right for you. We’ll walk you through the wig measurements process to keep it simple!

Measuring Your Head Size

To get your wig measurements, take a soft tape measure and place it at the middle of your forehead at the hairline. Then run the tape around the head, behind one ear, around the nape of the neck, behind the other ear, then back to the front at the hairline. We would advise that if you are measuring on top of your natural hair, ensure it is as flat as possible to give you a more precise measurement.

Jot down your measurement then consult the table below. We recommend the larger size if you measure in between sizes, otherwise the wig may slide off. You can almost always alter to a smaller size.

Custom Head Measurement

If you are placing an order for a custom wig you have the option to provide your own head measurements. It's important to note that your custom human hair wig will be custom-made to fit. That means we will not use a generic cap size. Our unique wig' features are best highlighted when your unit is custom-fit to your exact measurements.

Getting the right wig size is important and we hope you feel more confident with how to measure wig size, as it will make a difference to how comfortable you feel. If you are wearing a wig that is ill-fitting and doesn’t provide a snug and comfortable fit, or it is so tight that it is giving you a headache, it will sit all alone in your cupboard feeling unwanted and unloved. So let’s get the wig size right and feel as fabulous as we look!
