How to measure for your wig
If you are measuring on top of your natural hair be sure that your hair is as flat and smooth as possible.
You will need a soft tape measure for this. Taking the tape, measure around your head from your front hairline to just above your ears then wind the tape around to where your neck bends at the nape and back up to the front of your hairline.
This should give you a pretty accurate measurement. It is important to note that with all wigs, make sure you have up to an inch to give so that you will be able to adjust your wig at the nape of your neck.
Getting the right wig size for your head is super important; you will want the feel and look to be as comfortable and as realistic as possible.
A wig is an investment so you need it to be right.
