Has the question regarding the wig's length struck you as well, as soon as you reach an e-commerce website enchanted by a celebrity weave?
Choosing the right human hair wig length for yourself may feel like a challenging task.
Start note to start:
There are so many factors to consider like texture, style, origin, and length, not to mention the difference between virgin and non-virgin hair, and lace front wigs versus 360 lace wigs.
With the right information, though, finding your perfect wig is totally possible, which is why we’ve put together a handy wig length guide
Using this guide, you’ll gain a better understanding of how wigs are measured and what the measurements mean when you’re browsing different styles- skimming through it is the only option though.
Wigs are measured from the root of the hair around the crown to the ends. Curly and wavy styles are measured the same way, but when taking the measurement, the hair is pulled straight to get an accurate measurement.
An example to suffice the explanation:
if it’s 12 inches, the hair will land about 12 inches from the crown of your head.
But, Curly hair will fall 1 to 2 inches shorter on your back than straight hair but can fall even shorter depending on how tight the curl pattern is.
In addition to the actual length of the wig, there are a few ways to ensure that you get the right unit.
What are the available wig lengths:
Wigs can be found in various lengths from as short as 8 inches up to 30 inches. Some common wig lengths that people purchase are between 10 to 15 inches, which gives you a short- to medium-length hairstyle depending on the style and texture you choose.
Here are a few styles to give you a feel for where the hair falls:
A long hair wig is defined by hair that drops below the shoulder. E.g 20" straight wig with bangs, falls around mid-back
Medium-length wigs have hair that drops down to the shoulders. E.g 15' body wave side part wig, falls below the collarbone
Short hair wigs are hairstyles where hair doesn’t extend to the shoulders. E.g 11" loose wave Bob wig, falls around the jawline
One of the great things about wigs is they’re totally customizable. So, even if you don’t love the length of the unit, you can cut, dye, and style your wig just the way you like!
