HELP: Average circumference, small everywhere else (flat head)

From a customer e-mail:

I have the average circumference (21 1/2) but only 12 1/5 front to back. (ear to ear is about 13 inches). I love my current human hair wig but it is “saggy” where a normal skull would be rounded, not flat. What advice might you give me for selecting a wig online based on my head measurement?

Most of the lines I carry have human hair and synthetic wigs. I think that the best thing would be to experiment with some of the lower-cost synthetics from various manufacturers until you find one that really fits your head well.

Amore (average) and any petite wig that spring to mind that you may want to try right off the bat.

Why petite? Because the circumference can be adjusted easily on most wigs by just letting the wig in or out in the back at the adjuster tabs. The other parts of the cap are harder to adjust, as you’ve noticed. 😉

I also think a great human hair line for you to think about are the Evolution line from Jon Renau. Their fit is petite-average and they are made to sit very close on the head. You may still have a little extra space in the back, but it won’t be nearly as bad as most wigs. Plus, the built-in polyurethane all throughout the cap will help it grip your head better and stay in place — and give you a great location to apply adhesive if you need additional security.

Before buying one of these, though, I definitely recommend trying some of their less expensive synthetic styles — especially petite-sized — to see how they fit you first. It’s way less stressful to tie up $150 in an experiment compared to a couple of grand!

Hopefully, that helps! 🙂

Can I Cut the Extended Nape Off of My Wig?

We normally do not recommend cutting the extended nape off of a wig because it was made specifically for the style, but that’s not saying you can’t do so. We have had clients write in stating that they have cut the nape felt off completely with enough space for the adjusters and they said the wig fit much better in the back.

I have not heard or seen a demonstration of cutting the actual nape, but there may be some YouTube video tutorials out there that I may have overlooked. My recommendation is to try this on some of your old wigs that do not have this feature first before you try it on a wig you like and intend to keep.

I hope this information has been helpful for you!

Wig Keeps Falling in My Face!

Email from client:

“I have Eve by Jon Renau right now but I can’t wear it because the front falls in my face.”

Since you’re having an issue with Eve falling in your face, which can be a problem with styles like these sometimes, I do have some suggestion which might be helpful for you. Basically the wig needs to be trained to stay out of your face and one way of doing so is putting it in cold water, placing it on a head form/wig stand, and clipping the hair using hair clips where you desire. Often the drying helps speed up the training process.

Another thing you can try is a hair cream or holding spray. The contour creme is really ideal for styling and sculpting the hair and keeping pieces out of your face.

Another way to train is to use a streamer. You can use a wig approved round brush and then apply a little steam. Allow it to cool some and that will help redirect the hair. One tip, if you use a round brush, be careful not to get the bangs tangled and stuck.

Last of all (and the most extreme) you can trim the bangs which changes the look, but does keep the bangs in place. If you do go this route we highly recommend have a professional stylist with experience trimming wigs do this for you.

I hope this information proves helpful for you in keeping Eve out of your face.
