How To Measure Head For Wig?

How To Measure Head For Wig?
Steps To Wig Perfection

The average wigs sizes that are available in the market are small, average and large. But there are brands that can make customized hair wigs for you for that perfect fit when the ones available in the market doesn’t fit you like a dream.

Now you may think how a correct measurement is taken for that ideal fit. Well if you plan to do this by yourself at home you have to be mindful of a few of the things that will give you the correct measurements.

For this you can take a cloth measuring tape for the most accurate measurements.

Step 1: Head Circumference

Your hairline's circumference is determined by measuring the distance around your head. Beginning at the forehead, place the measuring tape at your hairline, and then bring it behind your ears. Back up to the beginning, wrap the tape around the other ear's nape.

The tape must be applied to the ears at the highest position possible—it cannot be tucked behind the ear. Make sure the tape is snug, but not so tight that you experience pressure on your head. The wig will feel stiff as a result.

Step 2: Ear To Ear

Right fit brings confidence

The wig won't look nice if it doesn't hug the crown of your head, thus this measurement is crucial. To begin measuring, place the tape's edge on your head at the level of the top of your ear and move it over the crown to the opposite side. Make sure the tape is drawn straight across with no slack.

A typical mistake is to measure below the top of the ear, which results in the human hair wig’s ear-flaps resting uncomfortably on the ear, which is highly irritating.

Step 3: Front To Back

This measurement is easy to understand. Start measuring from the forehead from the hairline all the way down to the back of your neck, at the nape while keeping the tape centered and tight. If this measurement is too lengthy, it causes bulging and causes the hair wig to slide off.

Step 4: Forehead

Start above the ear and move the tape to the same spot on the opposite ear while drawing along the hairline to obtain this measurement.

The middle of your forehead, where your hairline is the lowest, should serve as the midpoint for this measurement.

Step 5: Temple To Temple

This measurement can be a bit hard. You want to start by placing the tape at the end of your eyebrow at the temple and then drag it back and around your head to your other eyebrow.

The most typical problem is that people sometimes let the tape to move, and the measurement ends up being inaccurate, so make sure to keep the tape at level and tight.

Step 6: Nape Of The Neck

The base of the human hair lace wig will sit at the nape of your neck, thus to maintain the wig appearing tight and without bulges, we have to obtain a precise measurement of the hairline at the nape of the neck.

Start by positioning the tape so that it is level at the bottom of your earlobe and follow all the way around the hairline on the back to the same point on the other ear.

Pro Tip

To achieve a precise fit of your glueless wig, deduct one inch from this measurement.

Ear to ear measurement is very important as every person's head is unique and shaped differently.While some of us have rounded heads, others have ones that are essentially flat on top.

This measurement makes sure the wig covers the top of the head securely and doesn't bubble up in the middle or fall short around the ears.

Right Fit Can Go Long Way!


  • As long as you pull your hair tightly and watch out that it doesn't get in the way of the tape holding your head to the wig, almost all human hair wigs can be adjusted.

  • Bring the tape under the hair when measuring the circumference for an accurate reading.

  • If you have long hair, take it away from your face and bring it back into a low ponytail or a tight braid from the front to the back.

  • Shorter hair is simpler to manage, but a wig cap will be needed. Your hair should first be pushed down using a hair gel, and then you should use the wig cap to press it down even more. Make sure to maintain your wig's style while doing so.

The majority of off-the-rack wigs don't always fit perfectly, thus they are made with straps and elastic bands so you may change the size of the wig so it fits you snugly.

The range of adjustment is the reason why one size can fit several persons, and over 90% of customers purchase average-sized wigs. The majority of human hair wigs can be adjusted roughly an inch in any direction.

All of us want to ensure that when we buy a human hair wig, it fits flawlessly like a dream, without looking like a wig. Hope with this blog as guide you are able to find for yourself a well-fitted wig of the right size that doesn’t look like a wig at all.
