2020-08-10

Hair length is another important indicator of choosing a perfect hair system. The way the wig falls determines how well it suits you. And the price also varies with hair length. The longer the hair, the more expensive it is. Sometimes you may not be clear on what hair length to order for your hair system. Therefore, we are here to share your some information about how to measure the wig length, so you can choose the right wig length.


Steps to measure wig length


Step 1: Place the wig on a mannequin head or a wig stand. If the wig is wavy or curly, gently stretch the hair and straighten as much as possible before taking measurements.


Step 2: Take the longest part of the hair in the middle and take the measuring tape and go from the roots all the way to the tips. If your wig is on a table, make sure you are measuring from the roots near the crown and not from the front of the unit.


Step 3: Record the measurement result. If the wig style is asymmetrical or has layers, measure the sides as well so you’ll have a good understanding of where the hair will fall when it’s installed.


Notes: The curly and wavy hair is processed from straight hair, so in the same length, curly and wavy wigs will be looks shorter (depends on how deep the curl is) than straight wigs.

When you measuring wig length for curly and wavy hair, always measure the length of hair when the hair is stretched to straight to obtain accurate measurements.




How to choose the suitable length?


Choosing a suitable wig length can be a difficult job for many wig wearers. Actually it depends on your personal preference. If you want some cool vibe, you can choose short bob hair. If you want elegant hairstyle, then long hair length is your choice. If you are not into short and long styles, middle length is also a good choice. Before you decide over wig length, just figure out your own needs and the style you’re seeking for.


Another important tip you should know is that the wig length guides are just an approximation for your reference. The hair length is measured to help you look better in the wig you wear. So more than the actual length of the wig, there are a few ways to ensure that you get the right wig unit, such as your own height and specific hair styles. If you are a taller person, the wig may appear shorter when installed. It creates a visual effect. As for the hair styles, a curly and wavy wig will definitely look shorter than a straight wig.


If you are still unsure what length to choose, just get a wig longer than the hair length you want. In this case, you’ll have room for styling or trimming it to achieve your ideal hairstyle. Or if necessary, just go to the wig store in person. There you could try the wig on and clearly know how well each wig look on you. This is the safest way to get the right wig for you. But wig online shopping has its own advantage, you’ve got versatile style choice and decent price options.
