How Do You Determine Your Wig Size?

In order for your wig to fit securely and comfortably, you need to be sure you’ve bought the right wig size. Paula Young carries beautiful wigs in a variety of sizes— mini petitepetiteaveragelarge—so you can be sure to find a style that looks great and fits perfectly.

To determine you wig size, you need to measure your head. Before you measure, though, be sure to flatten your hair. Also use a cloth tape measure to ensure accuracy.

Step 1
Measure Around Head:
Start in front, follow your hairline above your ear, around back to the bend in your neck, around to your other ear, then back up to the front.
