How To Measure Your Head For A Wig?

Wigs come in a variety of sizes. From petite wigs to average and large wigs, Modern Show Hair Company offers cap sizes to fit most of heads. But, how do you know which one is the right fit for you? Easy. Follow our simple step by step guide below and learn how to measure your head for your new wig.

STEP 1: Start by pulling your hair up and away from your face and securing it with a hair band or clip. If your hair is short, try using a cloth head band to hold your hair back.

STEP 2: Using a flexible tape measure, lay the tape around the back of your head touching the base of your skull at a point where the wig will end and pull it forward just above your ears. Position the end of the tape at the mid-point of your front hairline. This will measure your head’s circumference. Write your measurement down.

STEP 3: Using a flexible tape measure, position the end of the tape just above one ear. Pull it across the top of your head, stopping at the top of your other ear. Hold the tape measure firmly in the spot above your ear and check the measurement. This will measure your ear to ear distance. Write your measurement down.

STEP 4: If your hair is up then let your hair down. Using a flexible tape measure, position the end of the tape in the center of your forehead. Pull the tape measure gently down the center of your head until you reach the nape of your neck. Hold the tape measure firmly in the spot where it meets your nape and check the measurement. This will measure your front to back distance. Write your measurement down.

STEP 5: Once you have your head measurements, reference the numbers in the size chart to find the wig cap size that's right for you.

The way your wig fits your head is very important. A good, comfortable fit is necessary, especially when wearing a wig for an extended amount of time. If you are a first-time wig wearer, you may want to order two different sizes to try and keep the one that fits best. Once you discover your favorite size (located on the size label inside most wig caps), be sure to write it down so you can reference it the next time you order a wig.
