Forehead to Nape
You need to place the tape at the center front of your hairline to the hairline at the nape of your neck. If you have no hair or little hair, then you need to lay your index, ring and third finger flat against your forehead just above the brow bone. And now, you have to measure the length or inches from tape to tape.

You need to place the tape from your ear to ear on your head. You should not place the tape on the ear or touching the ear. Instead, you should place the tape at the top of your ear.
