FACIAL SHAPES

We all come in different shapes and sizes, that’s what makes us unique! While you are considering and comparing wigs you like, some wigs may flatter your face more than others. Traditionally there are a total of seven facial shapes.

ROUND: The “Round” shaped face requires added height to narrow the width of the face and lengthen the neck. The hair should be combed close to the sides of the face and at the nape.

OBLONG: The “Oblong” shaped face has a very long and narrow bone structure. A fringe or slight bang, and soft waves or curls in the crown and nape areas help to soften and create the illusion of an oval.

SQUARE: The “Square” shaped face requires height on top and narrowness at the sides. The wide jaw can be softened with curly textures and wisps of hair around the face.

OVAL: The “Oval” Shaped face is longer with a narrow jaw. This face shape is evenly proportioned and works well with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.

DIAMOND: The “Diamond” shaped face is narrow at the forehead and the chin, with wide cheekbones. Bob styles work well for this shape and a fringe or bang helps to cover the narrow forehead.

HEART: The “Heart” shaped face has a wider forehead and a narrower chin. A fringe over the forehead will soften the width. The hair should sit close to the head at eye level and then fill out slightly from the ears to the jaw.

PEAR: The “Pear” shaped face has a small or narrow forehead and a wider, larger jaw. Hair should be combed to add width around the eyes and through the crown, then smoothed close to the head on the side and at the nape.

 


WIG CONSTRUCTION

While average size wigs tend to fit about 95% of customers, be sure to Measure the circumference of your head. Wrap tape around the back of the head and touch the base of your skull at a point where the wig will end. Position end of tape at mid-point of your front hairline, just above ears. This measurement is your head ‘circumference’.

Petite Body Frame:

and you have a full head of moderate length hair, you are probably ‘Petite’ or ‘Petite/Average’. Go up in size if your hair is thick or you have longer than shoulder length hair and down in size if your hair is thin or sparse.

Medium Body Frame:

and you have a full head of moderate length hair, you are probably ‘Average’. Go up in size if your hair is thick or you have longer than shoulder length hair and down in size if your hair is thin or sparse.

Larger Body Frame:

and your head circumference exceeds 22.5'', and you have a full head of moderate length hair, then you are probably "Large" or "Large/Average".  Compare your circumference measurements to the chart on the left.

Using the information above, you are now ready to select your wig size. Compare your circumference measurement to the chart below. Consider your body frame type and volume of natural hair to ensure accuracy in size selection.
