Measure Your Head Circumference 

The fit hinges on your head circumference. That is the measurement from the nape to the hairline. Use a measuring tape to determine the number. Typically, a petite size head can have a measurement of 21 inches to 21.5 inches. Most people have an average-sized head. It’s usually between 22 and 22.5 inches. Other adults can have a large-sized head with a measurement of 23 to 23.5 inches. 

Watch out for Signs That the Wig is Too Small 

You may think that you have an average-sized head. However, if you try the wig and it slides back and reveals the hairline, then your wig is too small for your head. You can choose a larger wig if this is your case. 

On the other hand, if it feels too tight at the temples, then it’s another sign that the wig is too small for you. Perhaps, you have chosen the petite size when your head is really average. Another sign that the wig is small for your head is if the crown on the wig sticks up. 

Understand the Signs the Wig is Too Big 

It’s too big for you if it slides around each time you move your head. You might have chosen an average-sized wig but you have a petite head. That’s why it’s essential that you measure your head properly so you get the right fitting wig.

Another thing to notice is if you can see your natural hair through the gaps. If you see it, then it’s an indication that your wig is too big for your smaller-sized head.
