Ⅰ. Influencing factors of wig cap size: head circumference size
The head circumference size refers to the length of a circle around the head. In fact, the measurement of the head circumference size is much more rigorous. Strictly speaking, head circumference size is divided into three dimensions: head circumference circumference, head circumference left and right depth, and head circumference front and rear depth.
The circumference of the head refers to the length from the position of the forehead hairline, through the ears, to the depression at the back of the head, and finally back to the position of the forehead hairline and ending around the head.
The left and right depth of the head circumference refers to the length from the top of one ear through the top of the head to the top of the other ear.
The front and rear depth of the head circumference refers to the length from the position of the forehead hairline through the top of the head to the position of the hair root on the back of the head.
The combination of these three lengths is the head circumference data.
Like the spot wigs we usually buy, they are generally divided into three sizes: small size, free size and large size. These three sizes are fixed. The size of the small size is 53 for the head circumference, 33 for the front and back, and 31 for the left and right. The size of the average size is the head circumference. 55, front and rear 35, left and right 33, the size of the large size is head circumference 57, front and rear 37, left and right 35.
However, our own head circumference is not a uniform size like the above. It is often seen that the head circumference is a large or one size, but the front and rear and left and right are small sizes. For a head circumference of this size, there are basically no spot wigs that can be worn. , it is best to do customized wigs.

When you first wear it, there will be some strains. After a long time, the inner net of the wig will be supported a little looser, which is just right.
● The disadvantage of too big wig cap
First of all, it will make the wig cap look loose, and if you are not careful, the wig cap will fall off.

Generally speaking, when the head circumference of the wig is larger than your own head circumference, the hair on both sides cannot fit your own scalp, and then the entire headgear is also larger than your own head. Naturally, the head will look bigger.
● The wig adjustment buckle cannot adjust the size of the wig cap
There is also a place that often misleads friends, that is, many friends think that the size of the wig is not suitable, just adjust the adjustment buckle at the back. In fact, in many cases, adjusting the adjustment buckle is completely useless. When the difference between the size of the head circumference and the size of the wig is more than 1 cm, the adjustment buckle basically fails. Although the lower part will be tighter after adjustment, it will cause the inner mesh of the upper part to bulge into a large bag, which is very unnatural.
