4 Things You Need To Consider When Choosing A Wig Length


When you are shopping for a wig, there are a variety of factors to consider including price, style, texture, color, and density. Of course, length is also a key factor in determining your overall appearance and temperament. The same style of hair, long hair, and short hair will always show different feelings. This blog will tell you how to choose the right wig length for you.

1. Classification Of Wig Length

The length of wigs can usually be divided into four categories, namely short hair, medium hair, long hair, and extra-long hair.
- Short Hair: 6 to 10 inches
- Medium Hair: 12 to 14 inches
- Long Hair: 18 to 24 inches
- Extra-long Hair: 26 inches and longer

wig length classification

In the above chart, we can clearly see where the length of the hair actually goes for different lengths and different curls. It is obvious that at the same length, the curly ones such as wave and curly appear shorter than the straight ones. For example, a 12-inch wavy appears to be about the same length as an 11-inch straight haircut. Whereas a curly appears shorter, a 14-inch curly looks 12 to 13 inches long.

2. How To Measure The Length Of A Wig

Most people believe that measuring the length of a wig is simply a matter of randomly measuring the hair from head to tail. However, buying a wig based on this perception may result in you receiving a wig that is shorter than you expected. This is because the texture of some wigs, such as curls or waves, can take up a certain amount of length. Which then leads to a very different effect even though the actual length of the hair is the same. Next, we will explain to you in detail how to measure different types of wigs with illustrations.

Wig Length Measurement

Before measuring the wig, you need to prepare a wig head and a soft ruler to ensure the accuracy of the results. Placing the wig flat on the table or holding it up with something else will result in inaccurate results. Measurement methods can be divided into two categories according to the presence or absence of hair curvature.

- Straight Wigs: First, place the hair on the human head model. Then, find the longest hair strand in the straight hair. Finally, measure from the crown to the end of the hair strand, which is the length of the straight hair.

- Wave or Curly Wigs: First, place the wig on the human head model. Then, find the longest hair strand. Finally, gently straighten it as much as possible and measure its length, which is the length of the wave or curly wig.

3. 4 Things You Need To Consider Before Choosing A Wig Length

- Consider Your Desired Look

Desired Look

If you are very capable in life or you are a very thunderous person at work, then short or medium hair shorter than 14 inches is your best choice because long hair can make you look cumbersome. And if you are gentle in life or your job is suited to an elegant look, then medium-length hair or a long wig is definitely the way to go because loose hair gives you more of a sense of serenity.

- Consider Your Height


Height is another key element to consider, the same wig length can give a different look to women of different heights. If you are short, try not to choose long or extra-long hair, which can make you look even shorter. If you are a tall girl, don't choose short hair, because a wig worn on you will look shorter than an average height person. For example, a 5'8" person wearing a 10" straight wig would be just above the shoulders, giving a perfect medium hair look. Whereas if a person is 5'4", this wig will appear too long.

- Consider Your Face Shape

Face Shape

Face shape is also a key factor in determining the length of a wig. A proper wig length will not only flatter your face shape but will also make you look stunning. If you have an oval face, you can try any length of Body Wave, because the oval face is very adaptable. If you have a round face, long-length wigs are appropriate for you. If you have a diamond face, a mid or long-length wig with curls or waves makes you look charming. And if you have a square face, short layered styles will make you look energetic.

- Consider Your Body Shape

Body Shape

The last thing to consider is your body type, as the hair length will invariably enhance your physical features. For example, for a tall and thin girl, medium or long hair will make her look sexier. While short hair may make her look like a tomboy. And for a short or chubbier girl, try a short or medium bob, which will make you look more adorable.
