HOW TO TAKE YOUR LACE WIG MEASUREMENTS
Before you start, make sure it is all pinned up and lying flat (with or without a wig cap), or braided before taking the measurements. Make sure your current hair is prepared the same way you would have it right before applying the wig. This will eliminate bulges that distort head contours. Use a tape measure. Do not stretch the tape. Take your measurements at least three times to ensure accuracy. *Make sure when you take your measurements, that you place your measuring tape outside of your natural hairline.

Circumference of the Head
Measure all around the head. Position tape measurer so its edge follows the hairline around the head and nape of the neck.

Forehead to Nape of Neck
Measure from hairline at center of forehead straight back over crown to center of hairline at nape of neck.

Ear to Ear Across Front Hairline
At front of ear, measure from hairline at base of sideburn, up across the hairline along forehead to same point in front of other ear.

Ear to Ear
Measure from hairline directly above the ear across top of head to the hairline directly above the other ear.

Temple to Temple
From temple to temple across the back of head.

Nape of Neck
Measure the width of hairline across the nape of the neck.
