Wearing a wig is a great way to experiment with different hairstyles without committing to a permanent change. However, achieving a natural and comfortable appearance is primarily dependent on picking the appropriate wig cap size. This article will go over the significance of wig cap sizes, how to measure your head for the best fit, and how to choose the most comfortable option.

How To Measure Your Head 

It is critical to carefully measure your head before purchasing a wig in order to establish the correct cap size. You will be using a measuring tape. Follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Circumference

Begin by measuring the circumference of your head. Wrap the measuring tape around your head, beginning at your front hairline and moving over the tops of your ears, then back under to the base of your neck. Keep the tape level and snug, but not too tight.

Step 1: Circumference

Step 2: Front To Nape

Take a measurement from the base of your front hairline to the middle of your neck, just below the occiput.

Step 2: Front To Nape

Step 3: Ear-Crown-Ear

Measure up and across the top of your head to about 0.4 inches above your other ear from where your hairline begins above the ear.

Step 3: Ear-Crown-Ear

Step 4: Ear-Front-Ear

Begin at the top-front of your ears, behind your sideburns, and measure up across your hairline on your forehead until you reach the top-front of your other ear. This will help keep your wig from sitting too low in the front.

Step 4: Ear-Front-Ear

Step 5: Temple-Back-Temple

Measure across your forehead, following your front hairline, then back up to the other temple, starting at your temple - where the side of your head meets your forehead.

Some Tips To Choose The Right Wig Cap Size

1. Consider your hair length and volume

If you have long and thick natural hair, a larger wig cap may be necessary to accommodate it comfortably. To get an accurate measurement, measure your head with your hair flattened or in a low bun.

2. Consider the manufacturers

Different wig cap manufacturers may have slightly different sizing standards. You should check the specific sizing information provided by the brand you are interested in to ensure the best fit.


Choosing the correct wig cap size is an important step in attaining a natural, comfortable, and fashionable appearance. You can get the best fit for your specific needs by carefully measuring your head and taking into account elements such as hair volume and customizable features. Remember that a well-fitted wig not only improves your appearance but also increases your confidence in wearing various hairstyles with ease.
