Styling Tips

1. What You Need To Know Before You Purchase A Wig

Sizing Wigs

The basic size measurement to fit wigs is the circumference of the head. To measure your head, use a flexible tape measure and start at the top/center of the head at the hairline; go back just above the ear, around the nape of the neck, back up above the other ear to the center of the forehead. This measurement simulates the hatband of a baseball cap.

Wigs are available in 5 sizes;
Large 23inches
Average 22 inches
Petite-Average 21&1/2 inches
Petite 20 & 1/2 inches
Ultra Petite 19 & 1/2 inches

Wigs can be adjusted using draw or Velcro tabs at the back. Some wigs also have tabs just in front of the ears to keep the wig close to your face.

90% of all women wear average size wigs.

Please note that Splurgeville wigs stocks are 98% average cap size. 

2. Choosing the right style...which of the 7 face shapes are you?



 Oval Face Shape

The Oval Shape Face is longer than it is wide, with a jaw that's narrower than the cheekbones. The face shape has no dominant characteristics, therefore it is completely proportonal.

  • Tip
  • Any style will compliment this face shape.



 Round Face Shape

The round face shape has a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. If the client is overweight the neck may appear short. Typically, a geometric or linear style looks best.

  • Tip
  • Add height and long wispy sides to make cheeks look narrow.
  • Combing hair close to the head and at the side will also make the cheek appear narrower.

 Square Face Shape

The square shape face has a wide hairline and jaw. Most face shapes of this type need height on top and narrowness on sides.

  • Tip
  • Comb hair off the forehead to add height
  • Add some curls and wispy texture to break the wide, straight lines of the square shape face.

 Diamond Face Shape

The diamond face shape has a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheek bones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at chin.

  • Tip
  • If you are looking for a new style, bobs work well for this faceshape.

  • If at all possible, use fringe and or bangs to cover narrow forehead.
