Measuring your head just takes minutes. It's worth it when your are buying a high quality wig. You don't want to spend money buying a wig that is too tight which makes your feel uncomfortable or too large giving you the feeling of insecurity.
To determine the right size wig for you, measure the circumference of your head from the front hairline, behind your ear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear and then back to the front hairline. Please note that sizes may vary slightly by brand.
Before you measure your head, be sure to flatten your hair. Also use a cloth tape measure to ensure accuracy.
Many wigs come in petite, average and large cap sizes. Average size wigs, however, tend to fit about 90-95% of customers. See wig size chart below, so you are able to determine the best cap size for you!
