How to take measurement of the wig cap size
- Before taking the measurement, do remember to pin the hair tightly and as flat as possible.
- If the measurement has a decimal, you will need to round up the measurement and not round down. Example: 11.75 should be rounded up to 12 and 11.25 should be rounded up to 11.50.
Do take note: If you do not have a hair line or bald, you will not require adding the inch. You can place the measuring tape wherever you would like your hairline to start with the weave. The averages below are for reference purposes, and will not match everyone’s measurement. Some may be under or over and it will vary accordingly.
We will need to take the measurement around the head. Place the tape measure that its edge follows the hair line around the head and scruff of the neck. (the average measurement is around 22 inches)
- Forehead to scruff of neck
Take the measurement of the hairline from the center of the forehead up until the center of the hairline at nape of the neck. (the average measurement is 13.5 inches).
- Ear to Ear Across Front Hairline
Take the measurement from the hairline at the base of the sideburn at the front of the ear, up across the hair line along forehead to the same point of another ear. (the average measurement is 11.5 inches)
- Ear to Ear Over the Top
Take the measurement from the hairline directly above the ear and across top of head to the same point of the other ear.(the average measurement is 11 inches)
- Temple to Temple Around Back
Take the measurement from temple to temple across the back of the head. (the average measurement is 14 inches)

How to determine your hair length?
The hair length needs to be from the top of the head to the bottom of the hair as the hair is straight. The curly and wavy wigs processed from straight weaves, so in the same length, it will be shorter by 1 to 2 inches for wavy and curly wigs than the straight wigs. However, it will still depend on how deep the curl is.
How to pick the length of your hair extension:
Clip in hair extension should be worn from a lower part roughly about 2 to 6 inches down from the top of your hair, and it is regardless of the length of your hair.
Please bear in mind that we highly recommend wearing a clip in hair extensions when the hair is longer than 6 inch.
