Measuring your head size is an important task to endeavor prior to ordering a wig. Here are 3 simple steps to measure your head correctly: Before you measure, make sure to flatten your hair, use a cloth tape measure and do not pull the tape measure, just rest it over or around your head. Pulling stretches the tape and will give you the wrong size. 1. Measure around your head at the hairline. The "around your head" size of every wig can be adjusted up to 1" larger or smaller to ensure a secure fit. The tape should be just above the ear and along your natural hairline.
2. Measure your head from the nape over the crown to the top of your forehead where your natural hairline is.
3. Measure from the point in front of one ear where your hairline ends, over the crown of your head, to the same point of your other ear.

A wig can be whatever you want it to be. When you wear a wig, you can pick a style that matches closely to your natural color and style. Or you can break out of the box and try something new. There are many different options when you choose the right wig style.And there are some factors to consider to make sure you make the right choice. Read on to learn how to choose a wig style. Choose the style that best fits the shape of your face.The length and style of your wig is the most important factor to complement your face. Pick a hair style. Shorter styles are usually easier to care for because you can just shake them and go. That's why these styles are most often recommended. Wig styles are also available in mid-length and long. Some longer styles require more maintenance like regular conditioning to keep them manageable. Consider a color. You might want to stick to your normal hair color. Or you can try something wild and crazy. It's even possible to get highlights in a wig. When in doubt, choose a lighter shade because darker hues can overwhelm your face and make you look pale. Decide if you want synthetic or human hair. Synthetic wigs require the least amount of care and they come pre-styled. Human hair wigs allow you to create styles just like you would your own hair. Ask yourself how you'll feel. One of the most common reasons for a wig is because the woman is going through chemotherapy. This type of cancer treatment can cause you to feel weak and tired at times. Knowing that, you might want to choose a style that requires little work so you always look your best without a lot of effort. ♦Here are some styling tips for all face shapes. ♦OVAL--The most common face shape is oval. Your forehead, cheekbones, jaw line and chin are in perfectly balanced proportion. And, because the oval shaped face is so proportional, almost any hair style will look good and suit your face shape. ♦ROUND--This face has full cheeks and a rounded forehead and chin. Adding height to the top of the crown will make your face appear slimmer. A round face is flattered by a short, layered cut or wispy diagonal bangs. Try avoiding width and volume at the sides or a heavy fringe which will make your face look more round. ♦DIAMOND--This face has wide cheek bones, a low forehead and small chin. To balance wide cheekbones, your style should be narrower at the sides and fuller around the chin. Avoid volume at the crown. ♦SQUARE--This face has a wide hairline, square chin and angular contours. You want to create the illusion of length to the face by adding height on top and narrowness at the sides. Combing hair off the forehead will add height to your face. This shape needs a hairstyle with softness to lessen the effects of the angles. Try a curly wig that is mid-length to long, or you could try wisps of hair around your face. ♦Avoid one- length hair styles. ♦HEART--This face has a broad forehead and narrow chin, like an inverted triangle. To disguise the width, bring some hair onto your forehead. Keep hair close to the head at the eyes and slightly full around the jaw, also below and in front of the earlobes. Hair should be chin-to shoulder-length. Ideal styles flick outwards around chin level to balance the narrow chin. ♦PEAR--This face has a low forehead, and wide cheekbones and chin.. Full layered looks adding width and volume from the eyes to the crown are ideal for the pear shape. This will deflect attention from the middle of your face. A classic shag hairstyle looks wonderful. Try to avoid jaw length blunt cuts. ♦OBLONG--This face has a long chin, high forehead and long cheeks. To create the illusion of an oval face, add width and fullness at the sides with soft curls and waves. Having a fringe will give you the softness that is needed and help shorten the facial appearance. Avoid one length cuts and short layers that add volume to the crown areas.

Pin up your hair. If your hair is long, separate the hair into two pieces, and twist. Cross the two pieces behind your head, and clip them across the top. This is an easy way to even your hair out on your head without a huge ponytail bulge.Shorter hair can simply be combed and clipped to the crown of the head, or placed into a bun at the base of your neck.You could also braid your hair before applying a wig.
Put on a wig cap. Use a wig cap on any type of hair length to hold it all in and ensure a smooth fit. Even if you are bald, use a wig cap - it will help keep the wig on.
Put the wig on your head from front to back. There are two tabs on each front/side of the wig. Position these right in front of your ears. Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect right away. Go ahead and style/brush it into place the way you'd like it to look.
