How do I know my wig size?

Choosing the correct wig size can be the difference of feeling and looking comfortable. While it's a safe bet that you'll fit into an Average size (90% of people do), we want to make sure you get the best wig or hairpiece to fit you.

To ensure a correct cap size, measure the circumference of your head from the front of your hairline, behind your ear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear and then back to the front hairline (see images below). Keep in mind most wigs have adjustable straps to comfortably secure to your head, up to another 1 to 1.5" of room.

Use the chart below to see the visuals of the measurements and find your correct wigs size. On each catalog page you can use the "Select Size" option to filter wigs by their respective size; Average, Large or Petite. If you have any questions or concerns with this process our wig fitting experts are standing by to help!
