How to measure for your cap size

How to properly measure your head to determine your wig size:

Before ordering your wig, please follow these tips to ensure a good fit.

Measure your head using a flexible measuring tape.

How To Measure Your Head:

Before you start:  Flatten your hair as tight as possible before taken your head measurements. This will eliminate bulges that distort head contours.

IMPORTANT: Make sure that you measure ACCURATELY. If you do not measure properly, your wig may not fit. Measure at least 2-3 times to be sure. We take measurements in whole and half inches. So please, round your measurements up not down. Example: 12 3/4 should be rounded up to 13 and 12 1/4 should be rounded up to 12 1/2.
