1.Start with Head Size
For human hair wigs, there are 3 sizes and they are: Petite (21''), Average (22'') and Large (23''). The average size can fit 90%-95% of women wig wearers, considering most wigs have an adjustable strap in the back and it allows you tighten the wig cap half an inch smaller. However, measuring your cap size is a must before purchasing a wig.
Take a soft measuring tape and follow the below steps to measure the 5 numbers including Circumference, Front to Back, Side to Side across forehead, Side to Side over top and Nape of Neck.

Check our size banner to see which range your numbers fall in and you can know the wig size you are going to choose.

2.Choose the Right Color
It is always a safe choice to choose a color close to your bio hair and it is also good to adopt a new hair color which is two shades lighter or darker than your own hair color. But what if you want a totally different look, what hair color should be picked? Find your answer in the below detailed blog.
