Your Wig Cap: The Need to Measure

Wig-CapWhen it comes to purchasing and wearing your new wig, there are some accessories that are needed. Without these accessories, wearing your wig could become difficult. A wig cap is the accessory used to keep your wig in place while you are wearing it during the day. While it is possible to wear your wig without a wig cap, a wig cap will help to ensure a snug and secure fit throughout the day. However, if your wig cap is measured improperly, both the cap and the wig itself will be uncomfortable when you wear them.

There are average sized wigs and wig caps, which tend to fit the majority of women searching for wigs. However, there are plenty of instances where an average wig is too big or too small for the woman. With so much money being invested into your new wig, you want your wig to fit comfortably. The only way to guarantee a proper fit is to measure your head before searching for your new wig and wig cap.

In order to determine your wig and wig cap size, measure the circumference of your head from the following:

  • The front hairline
  • Behind the ear
  • The nape of the neck
  • Behind the second ear
  • Back to the front hairline


The following sizes typically coincide with the following circumference measurements:

  • Child: 19 inches
  • Petite: 21 inches
  • Petite-Average: 21.5 inches
  • Average: 22 inches
  • Average-Large: 22.5 inches
  • Large: 23 inches


There are also strap options that allow you to add or take away length to create a better fit with your wig and wig cap.
