Wig Cap Size Chart

Originally Posted on April 23, 2014 by Heather Hershey
Hello! The chart below is from one of my brands and I thought it was so useful that I had to share it!
The sizing chart below refers to size designations according to cap circumference. This is the measurement used to determine if you should wear a Petite, Average, or Large cap size.
Please keep in mind that with the exception of bespoke wigs (aka wigs that are made custom to fit your exact measurements) all wigs may require a little tweaking to fit you “right off the rack.” The hairlines and sizing used to create pret-a-porter wigs is made to fit most head shapes and as such may not always fit you the same way it fits the models in the manufacturer pictures.

    Have been wearing wigs for over 20 yrs & love doing so. Past few yrs I’ve noticed wigs seem smaller, or I’ve grown so many brain cells my head has gotten bigger, HA! I really love Noriko wigs & am hooked on Millie, but my 22″ head seems large for the brand. Any suggestions re: similar brands/larger fit? (Raquel Welch seems to fit a bit better.)

      Hi Nita! Thank you for commenting!

      You are not alone in the Noriko fit. It’s kinda a surprise for a lot of new wig wearers, myself included, that Noriko wigs fit more petite-average than average. Here’s a great article from our Knowledge Base for a general fit with the brands we carry.

      The brands that fit true to average and average-large should fit you much better. 🙂
