Hey Gorgeous!

Need help with choosing a wig cap size? Check out the guide below.

If you would like your wig to last for a long time, a comfortable fit is important. Measuring your head for a wig is simple and easy. Using a cloth tape measure, do the following:


  1. Circumference

Hold the measuring tape at the centre of your forehead. Next, run the tape around, behind the ears, passing your hairline at the nape. Bring it back up to the middle of your forehead.


  1. Ear to ear

Hold the measuring tape at the hairline of the ear. Next, measure across the top of the head and continue to the hairline at the top of the opposite ear.


  1. Forehead to Nape

Take the tape measure and start from the centre of your hairline and follow a straight line down to the nape of the neck.


  1. Temple to temple

Start at one temple, then bring the tape measure around the back of your head to reach the other temple.


You may use the measurements below as a wig cap size guide. We recommend a larger cap size if you measure between sizes.

** The Dotti Hair Extensions' default wig cap size is Medium. You may request a different wig cap size upon placing your order.
