Before purchasing your first wig...
Cut your remaining hair (if any) as short as possible. We understand that this can be a difficult thing to do but it will help your wig fit better and feel more comfortable as a result.
Sizing is key to a good fit...
Ideally, your wig should be snug but not so tight that it gives you a headache. Measuring your head will help you find the right wig size. To measure, take a tape measure and start at the front of your natural hairline and wrap the tape behind your ears to the nape of your neck around to your other ear until the tape meets again at your hairline. Take note of your measurement and use the reference table below to find your size.

For added security...
Most wigs will be held in place by small adjustable elastic straps that are inside of the wig. These can be tightened to make your wig fit snugly and securely. If this alone does not offer enough security, you can use double-sided wig tape or invest in a wig grip. Wearing a wig cap will also help with slipping. You can also look for wigs that have polyurethane strips that allow you to use adhesive without damaging the wig. There are also wigs that have silicone lining on the inside of the cap for an extra-secure grip without the use of adhesive.
