Measuring your head accurately is the most important task before ordering a Full Lace Wig or customing Full Lace Wig.

Whether you are ordering a standard size or a custom fit Wig we recommend you measure your head at least 3 times to ensure a proper fit.

Pin your hair as flat and tight as possible before taking the measurements to eliminate bulges that distort the head shape.

Remember to place your measuring tape a little outside of your natural hairline when taking the measurements. This will ensure that your hairline will be fully covered by your Full Lace Wig once glued to your scalp.

For more accurate measures, consider having someone else measure your head rather than do it by yourself.

Write down all your measurements in inches.

The step of measuring your own head

1. The Circumference of your Head:  

Measure The Circumference of your Head

Measure all around the head. Position tape measure so its edge follows the hair line around the head and nape of the neck. (Average measurement is 22 inches).

2. From Forehead to Nape of Neck:

From forehead to nape of neck

Measure from hairline at center of forehead straight back over crown to center of hairline at nape of neck. 

Note: Place the tape measure about 1/2 inch in front of your hairline in the front of forehead while taking the measure to the back of your Nape (neck) about 1/2 inch below your hairline in the back. Keeping in mind that your cap is glued to the outside perimeter of your natural hairline on your skin. (Average measurement is 14.5 inches)

3. Ear to Ear Across Forehead:  

Ear to Ear Across Forehead

At front of ear, measure from hairline at base of sideburn, up across the hair line along forehead to same point in front of other ear. (Average measurement is 12 inches)

4. From Ear to Ear Over Top of Head:  

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. (Average measurement is 13 inches)

5. From temple to temple across the back of head:

From temple to temple across the back of head

From temple to temple across the back of head. (Average measurement is 14.5 inches). 

Note: Place the tape measure about 1/2 inch in front of your hairline at the temple to temple point on each side of your head. Keeping in mind that your cap is glued to the outside perimeter of your natural hairline in this area as well.

6. Nape of Neck:  

Nape of Neck

Measure the width of hairline across the nape of the neck. (Average measurement is 5 inches).

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.
