Rate this post

Toupee, or hair system, is no longer a strange thing to men when hair shedding and balding is no longer a problem that occurs to the old. Even men at young ages might also experience this unexpected matter. Toupee is useful, but it doesn’t mean it will take effect all the time. If you don’t choose the right color or more importantly, size, then the hair system might make your hair look even more “unnatural”. This blog will show you how to measure your head size for a toupee easily at home within a few minutes. 

Normally, toupee often comes in some standard sizes such as 6×8, 7×9, 8×10, 9×11 (inches by inches), etc. These 2 numbers refer to the width and the length of your balding area. 

Following is the instruction on how to measure your head for a toupee.

Measure the length of the toupee base

The length of the toupee base is measured from the frontal hairline to the back of your hair loss area. 

So, where is exactly the frontal hairline? You can easily find it by placing your 4 fingers with one side lining up with the eyebrows. The other side will be where your hairline is located.

Measure the width of the toupee

The next important figure that you need to determine is the width of your balding spot. The width refers to the distance from one side to the other of your hair loss area. Same as the length, use a measuring tape to identify this figure

By combining the two numbers you have measured, you can get the exact size of the area you’ll need to cover. Often, people tend to add ½ or 1 more inch to this size to make room for the glue/tape application.
