A: Most women can wear average-sized wigs Human hair wigs are normally of average size Virtually all wigs use adjustment tabs or special straps

  • A children’s wig fits head size from 31.75 to 51cm (18.5 to 20″)
  • A petite wig fits a head size from 51cm to 54cm (20” to 21.25″)
  • A average wig fits head size from 54cm to 57cm (21.25 to 22.5″)
  • A large wig fits a head size from 57cm to 60cm (22 to 24”)

A: To measure your head size, use a cloth tape measure. It is easier if you have someone to help you. Firstly, pull hair away from the hairline before starting, measure from your front hairline or if you have no hair, from where it would be, just above your ears and around the nape of your neck.

A: Before it is made into a wig the human hair is cleansed, treated chemically, and coloured. Most human hair wigs come un-styled and uncut and will need the same level care as coloured human hair. It needs more care after each shampooing than a synthetic wig does. After each shampooing a human hair wig has to be blow-dried and styled.

Synthetic fibre wigs look very like human hair ones and a top of the range synthetic wig will be made in the same way as many human hair wigs. A Synthetic wig comes already styled and recovers its shape after washing and conditioning, it is very easy for a client, including one who might be feeling unwell, to care for.

Human hair wigs generally cost more than synthetic ones. They are also more versatile, meaning that they can be straightened, curled, and coloured (this means that they can be darkened but never lightened), whereas it is not possible to use any kind of heat on synthetic hair, unless it clearly states that it is made of heat resistant fibre. It is easier to style synthetic hair wigs, and also easier to maintain them.

Synthetic wigs are generally lighter, easier to care for, and less expensive than human hair ones.
