Before you start: Pin hair as flat and as tight as possible before taking the 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. Use a soft measure tape to measure. 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. Special Note: If you are bald or do not have a hair line - you do not need to add the inch - simply put the tape measure where you would like your hairline to begin with the wig. The averages below are just examples. Not everyone will meet these measurements - some may be under or over and that is perfectly fine.
