Measurement to Be Taken for Wigs or Patches

  1. Ear to Ear
  2. Head circumference
  3. Hairline to Hairline ( posterior neck)
  4. Finishing—temple to temple from front
  5. Front to back--


Circumference or Perimeter

Around the head will measure the perimeter of your head.  Starting at the center of the front hairline, place the measuring tape flat against your head and completely guide it around your head.  Position the measuring tape just at the ear, down below the occipital bone towards the nape area and back around to the center of the front hairline.

Measure in centimeters.



Front to back

This measures the length of your head from the front to the nape of your neck.   The nape is located where your neck bends if you were to tilt your head back and look up.  This is also, where the bottom of the wig should sit to prevent shifting when the head tilts. Start at the front of hairline, measure across the top of your head to the nape area.

Measure in centimeters.



Ear to ear over crown

This measures your head for the top of the wig base. Place the measuring tape against your head at the top edge of your ear and go directly across the top of your head to the top edge of the opposite ear.

Measure in centimeters.




Temple to temple around back of head

Place the measuring tape at one temple area and guide it along the back of your head until reaching the other temple area.  For this measurement, it is extremely important to wear your hair exactly how you plan to wear it under the wig!  This will reduce the chance of your wig not fitting properly.

Measure in centimeters.



Nape of neck

Place the measuring tape at the lowest point of your neck at the hairline and measure across the neck to the opposite side.  This will measure the width of your hairline at the neck.

Measure in centimeters.



Ear to ear over along the hairline at forehead

For this measurement, begin by placing the tape right above one ear and angle the tape so that it can be guided along your hairline until reaching the top of the other ear.

Measure in centimeters.
