How to measure your head for a 'ready to wear' wig

To order a ready to wear Ellen Wille wig or Raquel Welch wig, simply measure the circumference from the forehead to the nape. The measurement should be over the ears and not on the ears.

Most ready to wear wigs come in the standard wig size.

  • standard wig size is 54-56cm
  • small/petite size is 52-54cm
  • large wig size is 57-60cm

This video shows how you can easily measure your head for a ready to wear wig.
