How to Measure Head Circumference for Custom Fit Snood Head Coverings
Our snood circumference cut fits most all head sizes and our unique tying design allows one to size the headcovering to desired snugness. The pouch (back) length is what is variable and should be considered when purchasing one of our snood head coverings. But, if you have a smaller or larger than average head size, or just want a custom fit, please refer to the below instructions for how to measure head circumference and either include this measurement in the comment area of the shopping cart at check out - or email us the measurement after remitting payment. We will confirm the request in the Order Confirmation & Shipping Info email you will receive after your order has been received.
- Starting at the center of the front hairline, place the tape flat against your head at the point where you will wear the front edge of the snood. In the picture above I have the starting point approx. 2 inches back from hairline. If you are going to wear the snood forward for more coverage, you would instead place the starting of the tape measure at the edge of the hair line at forehead.
- With the tape measure going over the ear (or just above the ear if you plan to wear the edge behind your ears) and towards the back of the head keep the tape at the nape of the neck as you go around to the opposite side of your head and returning back to the starting point.
- This measurement is your head circumference.
