Before you begin measuring your head, make sure your hair is all pinned up and lying flat (with or without a wig cap). Your hair must be prepared the same way you would have it right before applying the wig. This will eliminate bulges that distort head contours. Use a tape measure to measure. Our lace wig size measurements are in inches. Ensure you do not stretch the measuring tape when measuring.
Tip: When measuring, place your measuring tape outside of your natural hairline.
How to Measure Your Head For a Wig
Most wig caps are adjustable. By adjusting the elastic straps, you can make the cap tighter or looser. But if you would like your wig to be made to fit your head, please follow the below instructions.
To measure the circumference of your head for a wig, take the 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.
If your size falls between two cap sizes, going for the larger cap gives you more leeway to alter to a smaller size.
Here are the 3 main measurements to guarantee the right fit:
Front to Nape:
Ear to Ear:
Your wig should settle into your natural hairline. The back of the wig should come down to the natural hairline (nape) in the back. Our wigs have an adjustable strap, elastic band which allow you to adjust the circumference of your wig for the best and most comfortable fit.
