Average Cap Size Wigs

The average wig cap size is a matter of personal choice. There are a number of things to consider when choosing the right wig cap size. The table below will help you choose what is the average wig cap size for wigs.

The average wig cap size tends to be just a lot smaller than natural human hair. This makes it easier to add extensions to it, if needed. Yet, you should remember that adjustable, detachable straps are available on most wigs too. They provide as much as 1.5in.

And, remember that adjustable clasps can also be found on wigs. They provide as much as 1.5in. This is important because it allows you to get the perfect average wig cap size. It is better to have too small than too big of a wig cap. There are wigs available in both, small, and large.

The other important consideration for choosing the correct wig cap size is what is the average size of the head of the wearer. The rule of thumb for measuring the circumference of your head is about two to three inches below the ears. This rule also applies for non-bridal wigs. Also, remember that non-standard or synthetic lace front wigs can come in different sizes, so you may need to order a custom sized one. But, the advantage of a custom-fitted wig cap is that it will fit better and more comfortably.

In order to ensure the wearer has the perfect average wig cap size, there are 2 measurements you should take: one is to make sure the face is clean and free of any hair; and the other is to determine the depth of the side parting. The measurement of the hair above the ear and the hair beyond the side parting is called the "base" of the wig. The length of this measurement is called the "crown" of the wig. Remember that when you receive your custom wig, it will come with an adhesive strip to measure the base and crown measurements separately. You will have to measure the hair beyond the attachment point, which is about one to two inches above the skin fold on the back of your head. With these 2 measurements, you will be able to choose the best base and crown depth for your blonde wig cap structure.

When choosing your wigs with either of the above measurements, you are guaranteed to find something that fits perfectly and looks fantastic on you. The majority of wigs feature a tapered nose, so you are going to need to measure the inside of the nostrils. Your average pink lace front wig features a tapered nose, but you can't be sure until you take the inside measurement. If your nose appears too large here, you may need to purchase a wig with a tapered nose that has a smaller area inside of it. Take any other measurements that are necessary for your particular wig features and contact a wig specialist to help you choose the perfect wig for your unique appearance.
