HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR LOVELY HEAD?
Hi Beautiful girlies and guys!
Often, people are unsure of which size of wig cap is going to fit them best. I feel it is only right to have some information for you on the general sizing guides and some information on HOW TO measure your beautiful head
MYTH: It is easy to tell what size of head someone has by looking. Professionals do not need to measure heads!
TRUTH: This is not possible - due to the contours and shape of every head, it is imperative that you are measured / measure your own head sizing
WIG CAP SIZES
The Majority of wigs in an average cap size will fit the majority of the population. This however, is not everybody. We are all unique.
As a general rule of thumb,
PETITE WIG CIRCUMFERENCE: 51-54cm (20-21.25 inch)
AVERAGE WIG CIRCUMFERENCE: 54-57cm (21.25-22.5 inch)
LARGE WIG CIRCUMFERENCE: 57-60cm (22.5-24 inch)
It is IMPORTANT to note that circumference is not the only measurement that we need to consider. Front to Back, as well as ear to ear should also be noted.
At Mimo Wigs, we can provide wig alteration on the majority of hand tied and wefted caps, and MiMo has been certified to do this for you lovely girlies out there wearing hair - if your cap needs to be brought in.
JON RENAU have Provided a very handy tool that easily demonstrates how to measure for your wig, and also - their sizing chart.
Most people will fall between different categories for the different measurements. for example, you may be an average circumference but petite front to back, and large ear to ear. You should ALWAYS choose the largest of the measurements. Caps can be adjusted at the other areas and brought in for you.
