How to Measure

  • WIG MEASUREMENTS

    Getting these measurements down correctly will be the key to your satisfaction with your custom made lace wig. Please remember that you must measure your head in the same condition as you will wear it under the lace wig and you want to get your hair as flat as possible. That means if you plan to prepare your hair in braids to wear the wig, you must take your measurements with your hair prepared in braids. You will also need a cloth or plastic tailoring tape measure that is flexible in order to take your measurements in inches. Do not pull the tape too tight, but it should be a snug fit. We recommend measuring at least 3 times to assure accuracy, as your wig will be constructed based only on the measurements you provide. We also recommend to start & end the measurements approximately 1/4 inch beyond your hairline to ensure that when glued, your wig will adhere to your skin and not directly on your hairline.


    1.Measure your head Circumference around your hairline

    Place the tape flat against your forehead at your hairline and wrap around your head. The tape should rest behind your ears and also sit on the nape of your neck.

    Step 1


    2. Measure Front to Nape

    Looking downward, center the tape measure on your front hairline. Place the tape measure about a 1/2 inch in front of your hairline and measure back to the nape of your neck going over the crown of your head. If you are unsure where your nape is, bend your head backwards and note where your skin folds- this is your nape. Keep in mind that you want to adhere glue to the outside perimeter of your natural hairline, so if you have some hair below your nape area that you want to cover, measure up to that point. The measurement should be taken with your head downward.

    Step 2 Step 2b


    3.Measure from Ear to Ear Across Forehead

    Place tape just in front of your ear at your hairline (at sideburns), and measure to your opposite sideburn bringing the tape across your front hairline.

    Step 3


    4.Measure from Ear to Ear Over Top of Head

    Place tape at your hairline at the top of your ears and measure over the top of your head over to your opposite ear. If your hairline falls under your ear, start the tape measure there and position as stated above.

    Step 4


    5.Measure from Temple to Temple Around the Back of Head

    Place the tape measure at your hairline from your temple going around the back of your head to the opposite temple.

    Step 5


    6. Measure the Nape of Your Neck

    Measure the width of your hairline across the nape of the neck.

    The table respresents average ranges for standard size head measurements (in inches) for a full perimeter application. Your measurements may not fall exactly within the range. That doesn't mean that they are wrong as the table is only a guideline for head size. Use these guidelines if you plan to apply with glue on the full perimeter:
    • Your "temple to temple" will be similar in size to your "forehead to nape" measurement, but not smaller than the "forehead to nape."
    • If you have a small forehead/low hairline, your "temple to temple" will be larger than the standard "temple to temple" measurement (usually, about 1-2 inches larger than your "forehead to nape")
    • Your "ear to ear over top" will be similar in size to you "ear to ear over hairline," but not smaller than your "ear to ear over hairline."

  • FRONTAL MEASUREMENTS

    You can think of frontals as the front part of a unit. It is not a full head piece and is used at the hairline. People typically blend it with their own hair or with a weave in the back.


    1. Measure from Ear to Ear Across Forehead

    Place the tape flat against your forehead at your hairline and wrap around your head. The tape should rest behind your ears and also sit on the nape of your neck.

    Step 1

    2. Measure Front to Back

    Center the tape measure on your front hairline and measure from your front hairline going backward. We need to know how far back you want the frontal, up to 8 inches.

  • WEFT or BULK MEASUREMENTS

    Weft and Bulk hair is measured by the length of the bundled hair. Bulk hair is loose and is not sewn together in tracks. It is typically used for fusion extensions or braids. Weft hair is tied into tracks for weaving. Both are sold by the bundle/pack, in 4 ounce bundles. Usually 8-12 ounces, or 2-3 bundles/packs, are needed for full head hair extensions..

  • CLOSURE MEASUREMENTS

    Closures are used at the top or crown of the head along with weaves. The advantage is that you do not have to leave your hair out to cover the weave tracks.
    We measure the size of the closure by its area. Please specify:

  • BANGS MEASUREMENTS

    The following is our procedure for requesting bangs in your custom order. Please keep in mind that we do hair cuts based on the measurements you provide on your lace wig. You may also want to consider having your bangs cut by your stylist instead. If you would like us to cut bangs for you, please take your measurements accurately:

    Measurements we need for bangs:
    A) From side to side over the forehead- the width of the bang
    B) From front to back- from the front hairline going back; how far back would you want the bang to start?
    C) The length of the bang- measure from how far back you would like the bang to start (Step B) to where it falls on your face.
    D) Would you like the hair ventilated toward the face where your bangs will always fall toward the face without styling OR would you like the bangs with a freestyle ventilation (you will have to style the bangs toward your face, but you can also easily brush it out of your face)?
