Purchasing a wig is a big investment, and you want to be sure you are buying the right thing. If you are shopping for a wig that will fit a large head, be sure to pay special attention to the overall hairstyle, as well as the cap construction. Many available wigs are designed and built especially for people with a large head. Take a look at what other women like yourself are asking about wigs for women with large heads.
What are large wigs for large heads?
Although many wigs are designed to fit the average person, sometimes a person’s head is larger or smaller than the average head size. If you find that an average wig cap is too tight, you may need to search for wigs designed for people with a large head. These wigs will be specially noted that they are a large size.
Where can you find wigs for large heads?
Just about all of the major wig manufacturers will carry wigs in a large size. But, just as there is a great deal of variation between manufacturers, be sure to carefully read the sizing chart before ordering your large wig.
Many wig manufacturers will require three measurements to determine the size of the wig. First, measure over the top of the head from the top of one ear to the other. Next, measure the circumference of your head around where your natural hairline is. Lastly, measure from the front of your hairline to the nape of your neck. By combining these three measurements you will be able to determine if a large wig is necessary for your shape.
Who will need a wig for a large head?
People who have a larger than average head size and shape will generally need a large wig. This is because the average size wig may fit too tightly on their head, making it uncomfortable to wear for hours on end. Further, if you have a naturally thick, or full head of hair, and you want to place the wig over the top of your natural hair, you may require a slightly larger size.
How do you know if a wig is too big?
It can be hard to determine if a wig is a right size for you. Although you may think you have a large head, you may not require a large wig size. With the wig on, try to move your head from side to side. If you find that the wig slips or moves, it may be too big. Check the areas where the wig hairline comes in contact with your ears.
If you see gaps start to form this could be a sign the wig is too large. Lastly, compare the wig to your natural hairline. If it does not line up accurately, you may benefit from a slightly smaller wig.
Alternatively, it is important to make sure that a wig is not too small too. If you notice that your wig continues to slide backward, even after it is put in place it might be too small. If the wig edges are rolling under instead of staying flat it may be another sign that the wig is too small. Lastly, if the wig feels too tight and is not comfortable to wear, this could be the biggest sign that you probably need a large wig size to accommodate the size and shape of your head.
