MEASUREMENTS TAKING INSTRUCTION
We recommend being in earnest about taking
measurements of head in order to avoid discomfort of bearing custom-made
wig. Below are instructions on how to measure your head for your
custom or semi-custom made wig.
These measures the distance around your
head. Starting at the center of the front hairline, place the
tape flat against your head, going just above the ear towards
the back of the head, keeping the tape at the nape of your neck
and go around to the opposite side of your head, just above
the opposite ear and returning to the center of the front hairline.
|2. Deepth 1 (Front
to Nape): This measures the
length of your head from the front to the nape of your neck.
To determine where the nape of your neck is, tilt your head
back and look up. Where your neck bends and may even develop
a skin fold, is where your nape is. You want the bottom of the
wig to sit right above this area so that when you do tilt your
head back that far, your wig will not shift on your head. This
area is often right at the occipital bone, but be sure to take
the measurement with your neck bent down so that you are looking
at your shoes. Starting at the front hairline, measure directly
across the middle top of your head to the area that you have
determined is your nape.
| 3. Deepth 2 (Ear
to Ear Across Top of Head): This measures your head
for the top of the wig base. Place 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. This measure is taken
not from the edge of ear but from the point where glass holders
|4. Elbow (Ear to Ear
across Front): This measures your ear to ear length
for tape tab placement. Place tape in front of your ear indenting
from your ear 0,5 cm, bring tape up towards the top of the head
through front hairline, down to the opposite point (0,5 cm from
the front point of the opposite ear).
Helpful Hints for taking good measurements:
1.) Use a cloth measuring tape.
2.) Measure holding the tape snug, but not tight against the
3.) Keep tape flat against your head and do not allow kinks
or twists to develop in the tape.
4.) Take measurements at least 3 times to be sure. Consistent measurements are an indication that you
are measuring correctly.
