How do you measure your head size?
Wigs come in a variety of sizes. From small wigs to regular wigs and large wigs, but how do you know which one is best for you? Follow our simple step-by-step guide below to learn how to measure your head for a new wig.
Step 1: Start by pulling your hair up and away from your face, then secure it with a hairband or bobby pin. If your hair is short, try using a cloth headband to secure your hair in the back.
Step 2: Using a soft ruler, wrap the tape around the end of the wig at the back of your head where it touches the base of your skull and pull it forward above your ears. Place the end of the tape at the midpoint of the front hairline. This will measure the circumference of your head. Write down your measurements.
Step 3: Place the end of the tape measure above one ear. Pull it over the top of your head and stop at the top of the other ear. Hold the tape measure firmly in position above your ear and check the measurement. This will measure the distance from your ear to your ear. Write down your measurements.
Step 4: Using a tape measure, place the end of the tape measure in the center of your forehead. Gently pull the tape measure down the center of your head until it reaches the back of your neck. Hold the tape measure firmly against the back of your neck and check the measurement. This will measure your anterior-posterior distance. Write down your measurements.
Step 5: Once you have completed your head measurements, refer to the numbers in the size chart to find the right size wig cap for you.
