BEFORE YOU START:
You must style your hair like it will be under the wig. For the best results braid your hair straight back in flat cornrows. Get the hair as flat and as tight as possible before taking the measurements. This will eliminate incorrect measurements.
Use a soft measuring tape to measure. (This can be found at any craft store)
IMPORTANT: Make sure that your measurements are ACCURATE. If you do not measure properly, your wig may not fit. Take your measurements at least 3 times to be sure. IF YOU PROVIDE INCORRECT MEASUREMENTS AND THE UNIT DOES NOT FIT THERE WILL BE A $150 TO REDO YOUR UNIT.
Measurements are taken in whole and 1/2 inches. Always round your number up to the nearest inch or 1/2, not down.
Example: 14 3/4 would be rounded up to 15
Special Note: If you are bald or do not have a hair line – you do not need to add the ½ inch mentioned. Simply place the tape measure where you would like the hairline of your unit to begin.
The averages below are just to give you an example. Not everyone will meet these measurements – some may be under or over and that is perfectly fine.
1. THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE HEAD:
Measure all around the head. Position tape measure so its edge follows the hair line around the head and nape of the neck.
(Example Measurement: 22 inches)
2. FROM FOREHEAD TO NAPE OF NECK:
With your head tilted down measure from hairline at center of forehead straight back over crown to center of hairline at nape of neck.
(Example Measurement: 14 inches)
3. FROM EAR TO EAR OVER TOP OF HEAD:
Measure from hairline directly above the ear across top of head to the hairline directly above the other ear.
(Example Measurement: 13 inches)
*Units are customized and will fit your head closely. Everyone has a different shaped head and we utilize standard mannequin heads that only differ by circumference. Please keep that in mind. The wig won't always fit perfectly, but close to perfect. They also stretch over time and will require maintenance.
