With hairpieces you don’t have to worry about head sizes. Hairpiece sizing concerns itself with your hair length, body size and style preferences. But to own wigs you need to know something about your head size. Fortunately almost 19 out of 20 women can wear average head size wigs. That means your head size when measured is between 21″ and 22 1/2" you can wear average size wigs, which is most of the market anyway. If you are not sure that you have an average size head by looking, measure your head with a tape measure going around the forehead at the hairline, under the hair, behind the ears and around the nape of the neck. If this is too difficult to do by yourself, have someone help you.

Wig Size

1. Around the Head

2. Front to Nape

3. Ear to Ear
Start at your front hairline. Measure around the lower back of your head, and then back around to the starting point. Measure from your front hairline, back over the crown to the back of the head. Measure ear to ear. Start in front of one ear, and then bring your tape measure up and over the crown the front of the other ear.
