How to Measure the Length of a Wig?

Many girls who buy wigs online face the problem of receiving a shorter length than expected. Why does this happen? For example, you purchase a wig that claims to be 24 inches long, but when you receive it, it's only 18 inches. Some hair vendors use tricks to make a profit from this. Let's understand how this happens.

When you buy a wig online, the first thing you need to consider is the desired length. How long should you choose if you want the hair to reach your waist? When buying bundles of hair, you rarely encounter the issue of receiving shorter lengths because we measure the hair from the weft roots to the ends. However, when it comes to wigs, you may measure it incorrectly.

Here's how to measure a wig correctly:

Get a soft tape measure and take out your wig. Place the wig on a wig head or lay it flat on a table.

Find the longest part of the hair and place the measuring tape at the crown, pulling it down until it reaches the ends.

Take note of the measurement.

It's important to remember that wigs are measured from the root of the hair around the crown to the ends. For curly hair, stretch the hair and measure from the roots around the crown to the ends.

The reason why many wig buyers complain about the hair length is that they don't realize that vendors may use different measurement methods. Some stores measure the wig from top to ends, which means you may receive an 18-inch wig when it's labeled as 24 inches.

On the other hand, measuring the wig from the bottom is also incorrect because wig makers usually place shorter hair at the bottom to create a full and thick appearance in the ends, known as double drawn. Although we can't guarantee the length of each individual strand, there is a standard called Long Hair Proportion. The higher the long hair proportion, the higher the cost. This type of wig looks more natural and avoids a thin, layered look. Our Isee Crown Series wig is a high-quality, double-drawn wig. The hair is cut from a single donor, with aligned and intact cuticles, and thick and full ends. We strive to provide high-end human hair wigs for customers who value quality.

So, when purchasing a wig online, be cautious and read carefully how the hair length is defined by the seller to ensure you get the desired length.
