Determining the correct measurements of your head size before your choose a wig style is an important step in the process. Although it may seem somewhat confusing at first, once you've found your measurements and know whether you fall into average cap, petite cap, large cap or somewhere in between, it takes the guesswork out of which styles to choose from. If a wig cap is too small or too large, you will certainly regret not taking the time with this very important step. For a wig to feel and look it's best on you, it needs to fit correctly. Once determined, you now know your headsize and can move on to shop the styles and colors you like. A one time effort, well worth it.

When shopping our website, you'll see noted on the product page for the style, "cap size", or "headsize" indicating if average, petite, large or the in between wig cap size the style is made in. Also noted, will be the product specifications such as hair length, fiber type, hair style, and color(s) shown on model wearing the given style.

Something to note, some manufacturer brands can vary slightly in terms of cap size. For instance, what one brands average, petite, or large cap head size cut may be, might be a little smaller or larger than another brands size. While it is not considerable, as long as you have taken your proper head measurement, and know your size, stay with that cap size when choosing a style. Most wigs can also be professionally tailored by a wig specialist to customize the cap size slightly for your needs.
