Find and mark your hairline

The first thing you will need to do is find and mark your front hairline. The easiest way to do this is by placing four fingers above your eyebrows. The point above your topmost finger is where your hairline starts. Use a marker to mark this point.

Measure front to back

Next, you will need to take a measuring tape and measure your scalp from front to back. Start at the point where you’ve marked your hairline all the way to the point where your hair at the back of your head starts (assuming you’re bald in the center).

Measure side-to-side

Do the same from side to side, measuring between the parts where your hair is thickest. Always go for the longest possible measurement when measuring side to side. This is because if it’s too long, the base can always be cut down to size. However, the same doesn’t apply if you measure and cut the length of the base too short.

String method

Alternatively, you can make these measurements using a string and ruler if you don’t have a measuring tape.

Simply place the string from your marked points from front to back and side to side. Then use a ruler to measure the length of the string to get the correct measurement.


Once you know your measurements, you will be able to order your hair piece online with the perfect fit, or if you don’t have the exact same fit, you can purchase a bigger hair system and cut it down to the right size.
