Wig Size Guide

Just as you would consider the size for a new top or pair of shoes before you buy, considering which wig size is right for you is essential for a comfortable fit. If you are considering buying one of the many gorgeous wigs available from Simply Wigs, one of the first things on your checkout checklist should be the wig size. Take a look below to find the easiest way to measure for your new wig.

How to Measure Your Wig Size

Firstly, take a soft tape measure and measure from your front hairline, round to just above the ears, then round to where your neck bends, under the occipital bone, (which is also called the Bone of Knowledge!) – And then back round to the front hairline from where you started.

We would advise that if you are measuring on top of your natural hair, ensure it is as flat as possible to give you a more precise measurement.

Our Wig Size Measurements:

AVERAGE wig cap size: Between 54cm to 57cm (21.25 to 22.5 inches) – We would say about 90% of our customers are an average wig size, so you will find that there is more of a choice if you are measuring within this size.

PETITE wig cap size: Between 51cm and 54cm (20 to 21.25 inches). We currently have around 60 wigs in our petite wig size range. Remember you will have up to an inch give to adjust at the nape.

LARGE wig cap size: Larger than 57cm (22.5 to 24 inches). We currently have only a few wigs available in a large wig size wig size. Keep checking our website though, as we intend to increase this number very soon.

If you LOVE a wig but you are unsure of the wig size, you can always check the ‘In Detail’ tab which features on the top of every wig product page on our website. The tab provides you with detailed product information to check what wig size is currently available for your favourite wig. It also gives you colour availability and the approximate dimensions of the nape, crown and fringe to make sure you’ve got a wig that fits you in all the right places.

Getting the right wig size is important, as it will make a difference to how comfortable you feel. If you are wearing a wig that is ill-fitting and doesn’t provide a snug and comfortable fit, or it is so tight that it is giving you a headache, it will sit all alone in your cupboard feeling unwanted and unloved.

So let’s get the wig size right and feel as fabulous as we look!
