Ellen Wille Sizing | Which Wig Will Fit Me?


Step 1: Record Your Circumference

Using a fabric measuring tape, measure the circumference of your head. Start at the front hairline, then wrap the tape around the back of your head, just above your neck's hairline. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight. (See image or video)


Step 2: Record Your Ear to Ear Measurement

Starting at the front hairline, measure 7” back to establish the top of head point. from the top of head point, position your measuring tape horizontally and measure the distance from ear to ear. The measuring tape should extend to just in front of your ears on both sides.


Step 3: Record Your Front to Back Measurement

Starting at the front hairline, take your measuring tape over the middle of the head and down all the way to your nape. Watch our “How to Measure for a Wig” video to see tips on establishing the front hairline and nape if no hair is present.

Hello, My head circumference measurement is 24 inch’s, 13 ear to ear and 15 hairline to nape. Will an Ellen Willie large cap fit me? Thank you.

Hi Isabel, we are not too sure what the 43 indicates however, we are sized as petite/average. Most cap designs with Ellen Wille will however provide a lot of stretch to fit up to an average/large in most cases. Please reach out if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help!

I bought a wig in Portugal an it has a tag saying 43. I don’t know if that is centimeters The person who sold it said it’s a one size for all. I am worried because 43 doesn’t correspond to your sizes.
