How To Measure Your Head For A Wig ?

Sep.05,2022

With the prosperity and development of the wig market, more and more people like to wear human hair wigs. Some people wear wigs to cover their baldness and make themselves look better. Some people wear wigs to change their style. Whatever the reason is, wigs are becoming more and more popular. When buying wigs, buying a wig that suits you is a key step for fashion and confidence. If you have ever bought a wig, but find it doesn’t fit you and because of that you give up the idea of wearing wigs, it’s really a pity. Wigs have their own special size, just like shoes or clothes. The size of each wig manufacturer may also be slightly different. But finding the right wig size is not difficult. Let’s take a look at how to measure your head for a wig.

If you want to buy a wig that fits you, firstly, you need to find out the size of your head. To get the best fit, you need to measure your head in six different ways.


1. Your head circumference
2. Distance from hairline to nape of neck
3. Hairline length from left ear to right ear across forehead
4. Distance above the head from left ear to right ear
5. Distance from the left temple to the back of the brain of the right temple
6. Nape length of bottom hairline


When buying wigs, each of these measured values will be used. Similar to buying a piece of clothing, each size also represents a different part of the wig. The more accurate these measured values are, the more suitable the wig you buy according to this size will be.
Let’s take a look at the measurement methods of these six parts.

1. Measure Your Head Circumference

Whether buying hats or wigs, many people may know to measure their head circumference first. Head circumference may be a measurement method familiar to most people.
① Starting from the center of the forehead, pull the tape back behind one ear until it reaches the back of the neck
② Wrap it around the back of the neck, and then wrap the tape around the other ear to coincide with the beginning of the tape
③ Record the measured value


2. Distance From Forehead Hairline To Nape Of Neck

① Place the beginning of the tape measure on the hairline in the middle of your forehead
② Pull the tape measure from the hairline of the forehead directly over the top of the head and from the back of the head to the nape of the neck at the bottom of the hairline.
③ Record the measured value


3. Hairline Length From Left Ear To Right Ear Across Forehead

Measuring the length of the hairline across the forehead from the left ear to the right ear is the most important step. Because it will determine whether your wig can look natural from the front.
① Place the beginning of the tape measure over one ear
② Pull the tape up across the hairline of the forehead to the other ear
③ Record the measured value


4. Distance Above The Head From Left Ear To Right Ear

① Place the beginning of the tape measure over one ear
② Pull the tape measure up over your head until you reach the other ear
③ Record the measured value


5. Distance From The Left Temple To The Back Of The Brain Of The Right Temple

① Place the beginning of the tape measure on one of the temples next to the eyebrows
② Pull the tape measure straight back and around the back of the head until it reaches the other temple
③ Make sure the tape is straight and not bent
④ Record the measured value


6. Nape Length Of Bottom Hairline

① Place the beginning of the tape measure behind one ear, flush with the bottom of the earlobe.
② Pull the tape measure to the bottom of the hairline and wrap it around the bottom of the hairline to the other ear.
③ Record the measured value

Some Precautions For Measuring Head Size:

1. It is important to understand the correct method of measuring head circumference, and it is also crucial to have a correct type of tape measure. So before measuring, you should prepare a soft ruler, a pen and a notebook to record the values.


2. Remove any hairstyles that might affect the measurements. When you measure the head circumference, some hairstyles will increase the volume of the head and make the measured value inaccurate. So if you are wearing a braid or ponytail before measurement, you should take the braid apart to restore the hair to a natural drooping state.


3. Remove any hair ornaments that may interfere with the measurement. Even if your hair has returned to its natural state. Any ornament you wear in your hair will also affect your measurement. Therefore, before measurement, you should also take off the ornaments on your head, including hairpins, headscarves, and so on.
