5 Steps to Getting the Right Wig Fit

How Do I Measure My Head? – 5 Easy Steps!

 

1. Why Do I Need the Right Cap Size?

Comfort, Confidence, and Styling Ease are just a few of the reasons you will want the right wig cap size. Getting the wrong cap size could result in headaches, the wig slipping back or forward off your forehead, and create insecurity in your wig wearing experience.

3. But… How Do I Measure My Head?

Alright, now you are probably asking what that chart actually means. You’re in luck! We also created this short video to assist in the process.

 

If you find yourself falling between two measurements, then go with the larger size. The front of the wig cap should be worn where your natural hairline would start and then use the ear tabs inside the cap to finish lining it up.

 

4. Pro Tip - The Inside Scoop on the Manufacturers and Fit

Average wig caps are the most common option in a manufacturer’s repertoire. Until very recently that is, now we have seen them expanding their styles for Petite and Large cap sizes! This is a game changer, and though you may still have a few less options being in a petite or large cap size, the horizon is getting brighter by the day.

Above, we gave a chart for the standard measurements of wig cap sizes. But, just as the credit card readers vary from store to store... well wig caps do the same amongst the different manufacturers. So, we talked amongst our wig experts, took into account your wonderful reviews, and made a nice little breakdown of each manufacturer we carry and their typical average cap fit tendencies.
