CUSTOM WIG MEASUREMENTS

 
 
CIRCUMFERENCE

Circumference will measure the perimeter of your head.  Starting at the center of the front hairline, place the measuring tape flat against your head and completely guide it around your head.  Position the measuring tape just above the ear, down towards the nape area and back around to the center of the front hairline.

 

 

EAR TO EAR (ACROSS THE HAIRLINE)

For this measurement, begin by placing the tape right above one ear and angle the tape so that it can be guided along your hairline until reaching the top of the other ear.

 

 

FRONT TO NAPE

Front to Nape will measure the length of your head from the front to the nape of your neck.   The nape is located where your neck bends if you were to tilt your head back and look up.  This is also where the bottom of the wig should sit to prevent shifting when the head tilts. 

 

Starting at the front hairline, measure over the top of your head down to the nape area.  

 

TEMPLE TO TEMPLE

Place the measuring tape at one temple area and guide it along the back of your head until reaching the other temple area.  

 

For this measurement, it is extremely important to wear your hair exactly how you plan on wearing it under the wig!  This will decrease the chance of your wig not fitting properly.

 

 

EAR TO EAR (OVER THE TOP)

Ear to Ear (Over the Top) measures your head for the top of the wig base. 

Place the measuring tape against your head at the top edge of your ear and go directly across the top of your head to the top edge of the opposite ear.

 

 

NAPE

Place the measuring tape at the lowest point of your neck hairline and measure across the neck to the opposite side.  This will measure the width of your neck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIPS:
  • Style or braid your hair how you plan to wear it under the wig before taking head measurements.  This will ensure the proper fit. 

 

  • Use soft measuring tape.

 

  • Measure your head 4 times to obtain totally accurate numbers.
