How do I know what size of wig will fit me best?

Sizes 

Most women can wear average-sized wigs, because their head sizes are between 54 cm./21.25” and 57 cm./22.5”. Human hair wigs are normally of this size. 

A petite wig fits a head size from 51 cm./20” to 54 cm./21.25”. 

A large wig fits a head size from 57 cm./22” to 60 cm./24”. However, large wigs are extremely rare, and have long, if slowly, been becoming impossible to find.  

Virtually all wigs, using Velcro adjustment tabs or special straps, have caps that fit over 90% of heads. This means that size is rarely a problem.

How to measure for wig size

To measure your head size, use a cloth tape measure. It is easier if you have someone to help you. Pull hair away from the hairline before starting. Measure from your front hairline. Or if you have no hair, from where it would be, just above your ears and around the nape of your neck. Please see the picture above. 

If you don’t fit any of the above sizes, please telephone or email us and we will discuss other options with you. 

Choosing and altering styles 

Choosing 

When a style is chosen, it should match the shape of your face, with hair length and colour considerations taken into account fully. It is usually sensible not to be too ambitious or radical in choosing one’s first wig.

Variations on the basic style can be achieved by using a wire brush, or pick, or your fingertips.  You may be looking for a change of style or because you are coping with alopecia, chemotherapy or trichtillomanis and the associated hair loss. In any of these cases you want a wig that will alter and enhance your appearance. Please contact us if you want to discuss any aspect of this.  

There are a few simple principles about complementing your face shape. A long thin face tends to suit a style that is fuller on the sides with less volume on top. Almost any style tends to suit a round face.  

A wig should also match your complexion, clothes and make-up.  

To identify the shape of your face, take your hair completely from it. The shape may be obvious, but this is often not so, because many faces combine different shapes. 

If this is the case, divide your face into two: upwards to the forehead, and downwards to the jawline from the level of the nostrils. Draw sketches of each half or use a digital or Polaroid camera to help you.  

Bring the two halves together to decide about the shape. Then see if you have any large or prominent features like a pointed or square chin or large and prominent ears or a similar nose. 

A perfect oval shape suits most styles.   

With a round one, centre partings and rounded curl movements should be avoided.        

Square shapes tend to need softening with some movement to break up the jaw line’s squareness. Solid lines and jaw-area width should be avoided. Chin-length layers, shapes that hug the face, and long wispy fringes are unhelpful. 

Faces that are heart-shaped have high cheekbones and wide foreheads. Height and volume at the temple area should be avoided. More balanced looks can be achieved using width or fullness at the jaw line from waves or curls. 

Long flat styles and solid lines need to be avoided if the shape is oblong. Texture and movement can be created by breaking up the length with layers around the eyes, cheekbones and ears. To shorten the apparent length of the face, a fringe will help, as will a round curly style. Roundness, to soften the length, can be achieved by using a side parting. 

A rectangular face is longer than a square one but still quite angular. To draw attention from the length, avoiding volume at the jaw line, a fringe and a side parting should be used.

A pear-shaped face has a narrow forehead and a wide jaw line. Width above the cheekbones should be enhanced by a wig style that adds height and volume at the temple area, and which reduces solid lines and width at the jaw line. Hair should never be taken away from and back off the face.

 Altering 

Some wigs can and should be worn immediately, but most look more natural after they have been altered, for example by layering around the face or by cutting a fringe, to suit the face’s shape. Many wigs are supplied with this in mind. If you have thick and long hair you need not normally cut it to wear your wig. It can be pinned up in a French twist as flat as possible on the crown of your head, and it can be concealed, too, by a wig cap, or by a mesh cap liner, to hold your hair in place.

To add height to a wig, lift the hair gently with a wire brush. If you also want fullness added, tease or back comb and then smoothen the surface hair over the teasing. When you want to return your wig to its original style, brush it thoroughly, then clean it, and then let it air-dry. 

If you want or need help with altering and styling your wig, you should check with your stylist that they are confident to do so. If they are not, we suggest that you ask them or their manager or employer to identify an alternative. You are welcome to seek advice from us on such matters. We also offer wig styling and altering to our local clients, those able to visit us, at reasonable rates. Please ask us as necessary. Obviously, whether you, or we or another company, cut and style your wig, forethought and care are needed, as it can’t grow back!
