For people with small heads, finding a pre-made wig that fits just right can be difficult. Of course you can always have a qualified wig stylist create a custom tailored wig for you but this isn't always convenient for everyone. So what are the best wigs for people with small heads? Let's find out.
Types of wigs for people with small heads
Like the name suggests, petite wigs are specifically constructed for people with smaller heads. While most mainstream wigs are designed to fit head sizes approximately between 21-22" in circumference, petite wigs fit those approximately between 20-21" in circumference. Wig retailers like Headcovers offer an extensive range of petite wigs which are suitable for different types of wig wearers.

How To Secure Wigs To Small Heads
Finding wigs that fit small heads is only the first part in the journey to making a wig fit a small head. Securing your wig is just as important. So what's the best way to secure a wig on a small head? With the Wig Fix.
Created by The Renatural, the Wig Fix is a silicone hair gripper with a unique, patent-pending, textured silicone design that uses gentle and comfortable compression against the scalp to keep wigs secured. This is automatically activated when worn. As an added bonus, the residual effects of this compression also stimulate increased blood flow to the scalp, encouraging thicker, natural hair growth overtime. It's also small head friendly!
To ensure that it fits a range of head sizes, the brand used UN and WHO statistics as well as test groups of 118 men and women to create a fit that works for a variety of people, including those with smaller heads.
How To Make Your Wig Fit Better
If you're still not having any luck finding a wig that fits your head perfectly, there are fortunately some tips and tricks you can use to make your wig fit you better:
Add a glueless band
All you need is the band, a needle and some thread–supplies which you can easily find online or at your local beauty supply store. Adding a band can make the wig fit you more snugly with minimal work.
