When shopping for a wig for the first time, you may be so excited about your new color and cut that you overlook the size of your wig. While average sized wigs do fit most people, accurately measuring your head for wig size will ensure whether you need one of the other petite or large sizes available. Fortunately, finding your wig size is a fairly simple process, and can be done at home or by the wig specialists at Wig-a-Do.
Wigs Come in Different Sizes
You can find your wig size using a flexible tape measure. Start by placing it in the center of your natural hairline, or where it would be, and move it down behind your ear to the nape of your neck, over your other ear until it reaches the starting point. An average wig is 21 – 22 inches. Anything less than 21 is petite, and anything greater than 22 is large. Measuring the circumference of your head is only one type of wig measurement. You can also measure from the center of your hairline back down to the nape of your neck or from ear to ear. Even though wig measurements can be done at home, the most accurate results come from the wig specialists at wig salons like Wig-a-Do.
