How to Find Your Correct Wig Size

ey_measureBefore beginning, flatten your hair. Use a cloth tape measure or a string to ensure accuracy.

Step 1. Measure Around Head: Starting at your natural hairline in front, follow your hairline to just above your ear. Measure around the back to the bend in your neck, just above your other ear, then around front to where you began. Record this measurement.

Step 2. Measure Front to Back: Measure from your natural hairline in front and over the crown to where your head meets the top of your neck. Record this measurement.

Step 3. Measure Ear to Ear: Starting in front of one ear where your hairline ends, bring your tape measure or string up and over the crown to the front of your other ear. Record this measurement.

Step 4. Check the Sizing Chart: If all three of your measurements do not match exactly to one size in the chart below, choose the size that corresponds to your largest measurement. The Velcro® tabs inside each wig adjust up to 1″ larger or smaller for a secure fit.

You Can Get the Look!

At the June 1 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards, bigwigs from the worlds of fashion, movies, TV, and music came together to honor the year’s best womenswear, menswear, and accessories designers. Congratulations, winners!

Of course, everyone in attendance looked amazing!

Fresh off her best-actress win at the Critic’s Choice Awards, Empire’s Taraji P Henson looked radiant in a stunning crimson Vera Wang gown, and her hair looked fabulous in an airy, effortlessly elegant shoulder-length style.

Singer Janelle Monae captured the happy, artistic spirit of the evening in a custom Tadashi Shoji cape dress with shimmering metallic filigree detailing, and her hair, styled into a fun, funky braided fauxhawk, paired perfectly with her dress.

Love these looks but don’t think you can replicate them? Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a celebrity with an on-call personal hairstylist to look red-carpet ready. A wig is the answer!

Our Gail wig can give you the same full, lightly tousled feel of Taraji P Henson’s bangless bob-like look. And our Kayden wig can give you a cool braided look reminiscent of Janelle Monae’s unique hairstyle.

So…try a wig and try some transformation!

Especially Yours Gives Back to the Community

Specialty Commerce Corp—and our brands Especially Yours, Paula Young, and Wig.com—make charitable contributions to nonprofits, faith-based groups, and medical organizations that do good, meaningful work to help people in our home community of Massachusetts and in communities across the United States:

American Cancer Society
CancerCare Connecticut
Cancer Center of Santa Barbara
Cancer Services
Cancer Survivors in Christ
Face in the Mirror
Glendale Adventist Medical Center Cancer Services
Hello Gorgeous!
Lake Health/University Hospitals
Lakeside Hospice
Making a Way Housing, Inc.

Women—beautiful in their strength, resolve, and faith—are the core of our business. To give thanks for our success, we aim to give back to the women among us who are the most in need.

Over the years, Especially Yours has donated thousands of pieces of apparel to outreach organizations serving at-risk women and their children. Our contributions to organizations such as the Miami Rescue Mission’s Center for Women and Children help cloth women in shelter settings and provide work outfits to indigent women in job-training programs.

We also aim to help cancer survivors regain their self-esteem and to feel beautiful once again. It’s our way of letting them know that our hearts and thoughts are with them, that they are not alone, and that they are truly amazing.

About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer. No doubt, each of us has known a coworker, friend, or family member who has faced such a diagnosis. It is because of this shared experience and connection that we believe it is our responsibility—as a company and as individuals—to raise awareness and to help those in need.

Treatment for breast cancer can be a painful experience, and the hair loss associated with chemotherapy can compound an already stressful, emotional time. Over the past decade, Specialty Commerce Corp has donated more than 68,000 wigs, hairpieces, hats, and turbans to women’s cancer charities and service providers so that women with hair loss due to chemotherapy might reclaim a part of themselves and their everyday, pre-cancer lives.

In addition to our own significant monetary and in-kind contributions to these many worthy organizations, we also donate returned nonrefundable clearance and final sale merchandise on our customers’ behalf. In these cases, each customer receives notification of her donation, as well as a receipt to use for charitable-deduction purposes at tax time. Specialty Commerce Corp does not receive any tax credit, financial gain, or other benefit for such donations.
