Find Your Fit

Measurements are key. The wrong fit can completely cramp your style (literally). If your measurements are wrong, this can contribute to the dreaded wig slide to worst … the wig hat and you just don’t want that do you? As best practice, you should always measure your head when your hair is secured back in a flat ponytail or cornrows. 

To find the perfect fit, watch our video below. 

Measurement Chart to Follow

Measuring your head is an important task prior to ordering a wig. In order to buy a lace wig that perfectly fits you, you should take your measurements carefully. Follow this chart below to get your proper measurements for a Stylish wig. 

Foundation

Seamless installs are all about the foundation. Hair should be secured neatly in medium to small braids for the best results. For longer hair, be sure to secure the tails of your hair neatly to your head. (See Examples Below)
