How do you make a wig fit your head?

Wigs and hair pieces for women add that extra flair to your hairstyles, giving them the celebrity-like attention they deserve. No wonder they are so popular with contemporary women who love experimenting with different looks for different occasions.

Women’s hair toppers enhance natural hair’s volume, length, density, texture, and movement. They conceal thinning hair, balding crowns, and receding hairlines to give you a more youthful appearance.

Human hair wigs for women are an excellent option for bald women and those with hair. But people often need clarification about how to make a wig fit their head securely.

Proper wig fitting your head is essential for comfort and a natural appearance. Here are the steps to help you make a wig fit your head:


Measure Your Head

Use a flexible measuring tape to measure the circumference of your head. You will also need to measure the front to back, ear to ear, temple to temple, and the nape of your neck.

The circumference measures the band of the wig that decides the fit of the wig. It is the most critical measurement for a snug fit. Start from your forehead’s hairline (typically 3-4 fingers above your eyebrows), go behind your ears, and then return to the front to get the best readings. Ensure that the readings are accurate and can be slightly small, and the wig stretches after some time.

The other measurements ensure you have a wig that fits without much gap at the top, sides or the nape of your neck. Superhaipieces’ women’s wigs come with bases that can be cut towards the nape of the neck for a more tapered fit.

Choose the Right Wig Size

Wigs come in various base sizes, such as small, medium, and large. Use your head circumference measurement to determine the appropriate size. Refer to the wig manufacturer’s size chart to find your size.

By choosing the perfect wig base size, you will get a human hair wig that looks and feels good. Superhairpieces have women’s wigs with adjustable straps at the back for a secure and snug fit.

Secure Your Natural Hair

If you have long hair, pin it up or braid it to create a flat surface on your head, which is essential for a natural look. You can then use a wig cap to hold your hair in place.

A wig cap will also be a smooth base for your wig attachment. Wig caps come in different colours to match your skin tone.

Adjust the Wig Straps

Most wigs have adjustable straps or Velcro tabs inside the cap. Locate these straps and adjust them to fit your head comfortably. Tighten or loosen them until the wig feels snug but not too tight.

Superhairpieces has glueless wigs with adjustable straps and silicone tabs for an effortless wig attachment experience. This is especially helpful for women with a bald or balding head.

Use Wig Clips or Combs

Many wigs come with built-in clips or combs that can be secured into your natural hair for added stability. These can be attached near the temples, crown, and nape of your neck. You can add more metal clips according to your preference.

Wigs with clip attachments are great for women with hair who want to try wigs. The clips will hold on well to your wig cap or natural hair.

Position the Wig

Place the wig on your head, starting from the front and pulling it towards the nape of your neck. Adjust it until it’s centred and aligns with your natural hairline and part line.

Then, secure the wig with adjustable straps and ensure it is comfortable. Use wig clips or combs to attach the wig to your natural hair, if applicable.

Style and Blend

Style the wig as desired, and ensure it blends seamlessly with your natural hair. You can use heat styling tools, hair products, and accessories to achieve your desired look.

Ensure the wig sits securely on your head without feeling too tight or loose.

Trim and Customize

Consider getting the wig professionally trimmed or styled to suit your face shape and preferences if needed. Customizing the wig can make it look more natural and flattering. However, opt for this option only if you are still looking for a well-fitted wig.

Practice and Care

Practice putting on and removing the wig until you feel comfortable. Proper care and maintenance, such as regular washing with a wig-specific shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner and storing the wig on a wig stand, will help it maintain its fit and appearance.

Remember that wig fit can vary between wig styles and brands, so it’s essential to follow the specific instructions provided by the wig manufacturer. Additionally, if you have difficulty achieving a comfortable and secure fit, consider seeking assistance from a professional wig stylist or consultant.
