Guide To Measure Wigs

Hairevent wigs, custom altered lace hair systems, full lace wigs and lace front wigs are designed for the perfect fit therefore measuring your head for your full lace wig is very important. Getting these measurements down correctly will be the key to your satisfaction with your custom altered lace wig or lace frontal. Hairevent wig makers will ventilate your lace wig to the specifications you provide and adjustments cannot be made once production starts. The greatest advantage is that you will have control over getting the best fit including matching the full lace wig hairline to your own for an amazing effect. See the simple instructions below.

1. The Circumference of the Head:
This measures the distance around your head. Starting at the centre 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 centre of the front hairline. ( Average measurement is 22.5 inches )

2. From Forehead to Nape of Neck
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 lace wig to sit right above this area so that when you do tilt your head back that far, your lace 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. Keeping in mind that your lace cap is sometimes glued to the outside perimeter of your natural hairline on your skin. ADD 1 inch to the measurement results. This is VERY IMPORTANT. If you do not add the inch, your lace wig will be too small and will not be able to be glued in front of your hairline. *If you are bald, do not add 1 inch. ( Average measurement is 14.5 inches )

3. Ear to Ear Across Front Hairline:
This measures your temple to temple length for tape tab placement. Place tape at your temple, just in front of your ear, bring tape up towards the top of the head and go 1.5 inch behind the front hairline, down to the opposite temple in front of the opposite ear. ( Average measurement is 12 inches )

4. From Ear to Ear Over Top of Head
This measures your head for the top of the lace 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. ( Average measurement is 13 inches )

5. Point to Point:
From temple to temple across the back of head. Note: Place the tape measure at your temple to temple point on each side of your head. Keeping in mind that your lace wig is glued to the outside perimeter of your natural hairline in this area as well. Then ADD 1 inch to the measurement results. This is VERY IMPORTANT. If you do not add the inch, your lace wig will be too small and will not be able to be glued in front of your hairline. *(If you are bald, do not add 1 inch.) Average measurement is 14.5 inches )

6. Nape of Neck
This measures the width of your neck. Place tape at the lowest point on the bone behind your ear (mastoid bone) and measure across the neck to the opposite mastoid bone.(Average measurement is 5 inches )

Please remember that you must measure your head in the same condition as you will wear it under the lace wig and you want to get your hair as flat as possible. That means if you plan to prepare your hair in braids to wear the lace wig, you must take your measurements with your hair prepared in braids. You will also need a cloth or plastic tailoring tape measure that is flexible in order to take your measurements in inches. Do not pull the tape too tight, but it should be a snug fit. We recommend measuring at least 3 times to assure accuracy, as your lace wig will be constructed based only on the measurements you provide. We also recommend to start & end the measurements approximately 1/4 inch beyond your hairline to ensure that when glued, your lace wig will adhere to your skin and not directly on your hairline
