I am getting my first custom wig from RPGshow and  they sent me this:

You measurements seem off:
1.Circumference: 22.5in
 2.Front to Nape: 14in
 3.Ear to Ear across forehead: 13in
 4.Ear to Ear over top: 14in
(the third and fourth measurements are not very accurate , please recheck it )
 5.Temple to Temple round back: 15in
 6.Nape of Neck: 6in

Do these seem off? I had my friend measure me when my hair was cornrowed. Now it's back out and the want me to remeasure? We did it the way the pictures said and these were our numbers

Those DO seem off to me. 

It would be more average for 3,4 to both be one inch less than what you have.. that would be close to my size!

and, your cornrows should not effect 3 at ALL and 4 just a little.

I don't cornrow but I wrap long hair under a wig, FWIW.

Remember you are telling them how big the WIG is, where the hairline of the wig will be .. meaning, you don't want to actually measure all the way to the edge of your ears, no hairline would go there.

Umm I think if you are ordering a custom wig ... and they are actually telling you your numbers seem off ... they are probably off or it could be that you have an odd shaped head. This is possible. :)

Either way, once you order the custom unit and it does not fit .. you will be SOL. So the best thing you can do is have it measured again. Measure it at least 3 good times to make sure.

I measured my own head just fine so you can do it. :)

If your friend cornrolls and measures your head and the wig is made with those measurements - that means when you apply the unit .. you will have to cornrow the unit tight again just like she did ... or the unit will be too small.

That's why I say you need to cornroll it yourself and measure it yourself. If your hair is very thick you need to find the best way flatten it and make sure you can do this yourself.

Be careful that you don't get stuck with a unit that you can't wear!
