This entry was posted in Knowledge By lya

If you are looking for the best human hair wig for yourself, you will know that choosing the right wig for yourself is not an easy task. You have to consider the texture, color, style, length and so on. You should measure your head before you buy the wig. Only in this way can you make sure that the wig is right for you. In addition, you need to measure the length of your hair. The hair length of the wig is an important part of the selection process, as the length of the wig is also an important factor in determining whether the wig is suitable. This article will give you a thorough understanding of how to choose the hair length of wig. 

I. What are the types of hair length

Our hair length is called by different terms such as short, medium, shoulder-length or long. These are general categories. Sometimes there is some confusion when it comes to hair lengths and their definition. Here is a brief summary of the different hair lengths.

Our hair length is called by different terms such as short, medium, shoulder-length or long

1. Short hair

There are two types of short hair. They are the length of the ear that reaches the ear, either the earlobe or the top of the ear. This is the shortest length of short hair. The other is chin length, which is a classic and most fashionable look. Chin length hair looks great with textured layered cuts

2. Medium length hair

Medium length is between short and long hair, it is a great way to add volume to your hair. Medium length hair is also just the right length to create a stylish bun. There is a neck length that fits most face shapes, between the chin and shoulders. Another medium length is at the shoulders, which is good for those who want the feel of long hair without the weight. Shoulder length hair can be tied in a ponytail, up, or straight down.

3. The long hair

Hair below the shoulders is considered long hair. There is a collarbone length that is just below the shoulder, which allows you to braid your hair and is also great for layering. Another type of length is underarm length. Add some layers, perhaps waves, for more volume and an inviting look.

II. Method of measuring hair length

Wigs come in different lengths, from 8 inches short to 30 inches long. A common wig is usually between 10 and 15 inches long. The dimensions listed on the wig you see are approximately where the hair on the wig will fall when installed. For example, the wig is 18 inches, which means the hair will fall about 18 inches from the top of your head. 

Wigs are measured from the top of the head from the roots to the ends of the hair

Wigs are measured from the top of the head from the roots to the ends of the hair. The same goes for curly human hair wigs or wavy headband wigs. The hair in these types of wigs is straightened to obtain accurate measurements. Note that curly hair is 1 to 2 inches shorter at the back than straight hair. It depends on the density of curls.

1. The measuring tape

This is the easiest and quickest way to measure hair length. Using a cloth tape measure is more flexible and easier to handle. Start by taking a strand of hair and measuring it from the top of the head to where you want it to fall. Don't hold the tape measure too tight, make sure it's loose. Take at least three measurements to compare the results and make sure you get accurate measurements. Curly and wavy hair is usually 1 to 2 inches shorter than straight hair.

2. Ruler and headband

If you don't have a tape measure on hand, you can use a ruler and a headband. First, place the headband on top of your head and move it down to the ends of your hair. When you're done, place the headband on the ruler and find out the measurements.

3. With the hand

If you don't have a measuring ruler, you can even measure the length of your hair by hand. When you spread your hand, the span from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your little finger tip is about 9 inches. Take a pen and a piece of paper and mark the position of your thumb to your little finger. Then, when you can find a ruler, use it to get an accurate measurement.

III. Steps for measuring hair length of the wig

Step 1: Place the wig on a stand or flat on a table. If you are measuring a curly human hair wig, gently stretch the hair and straighten it as much as possible.
Step 2: Find the longest part of your hair and place the measuring band on top of your head. Pull it down until you reach the ends of your hair.
Step 3: Write down your measurements. If the wig is A-cut or layered, you may want to measure the sides as well to know exactly where the hair will fall when you put it on.
For a wig with straight hair, the hair will appear at its actual length because there are no curls or bends in the hair. With wavy hair, the wig may appear shorter than it actually is due to the wavy texture. The same goes for curly hair, as mentioned above.

Is shoulder length hair good?

Shoulder length hair is proven to frame the face, elongating its natural shape or complementing a natural curve. The jaw-line appears more structured, allowing for a more youthful appearance. Plus, the chopped-off looks add some bounce and freshness to your hair to keep it healthy and full of the shine you want.
