Wig Step 1: Sizing
Correct sizing for your wig or hairpiece is crucial to a successful fit. By measuring the circumference of your head from your forehead, down around the nape of your neck, and up the other side, your stylist can determine the size of wig you need. Wigs for men, women, and children are not interchangeable.
Men usually wear wigs from 22.5 to 24 inches in circumference, while women wear 21.5 to 22.5 inches, Children’s wigs are usually between 18 to 19.5 inches. Clearly there is a large discrepancy between head sizes, so correct sizing is one of the most important parts of getting a wig. Careful and accurate sizing of your wig will also produce a much more natural look and comfortable fit.
Wig Step 2: Select a Style
In addition to correct sizing, a complimentary hairstyle will make you look and feel great. The stylists at Wig-A-Do can help you select a wig that will compliment your face shape. Determine your face shape by pulling your hair back and looking in the mirror. Most faces fall into one of these categories: round, oblong or oval, heart or square. Styles then complement these face shapes.
For example, if you have an oblong face, you may want a short, wispy style to balance it out. If you have a heart-shaped face, you may like a bob. Hair pieces, extensions, and wigs can all be purchased in the styles you prefer and that complement your natural features. Let your stylist help you stand out, and you’ll feel like yourself but better when you leave with your new, custom-fitted wig.
