How to measure Hair Length on a Cosmetology Mannequin Head
Hair length is typically measured from one of two ways: 1: start from front hairline of forehead and follow along top of head to crown and then down back of head to the longest ends or 2. from crown area of mannequin heard down back of head to the longest ends.
The crown is located on the top of the head, toward the back. By placing your measuring tape on the crown and dragging it down all the way to the tip of the hair in the back, you get the overall crown to ends measure.
Hair length on Cosmebeautica mannequin heads is measured starting from hairline of forehead to crown and then to ends. The crown is located on the top of the head, toward the back. The first way to measure hair is from the hairline (at the forehead), down to ends. There is about 3 inches length between the hairline and the crown, so it’s important to find out how the vendor measures the hair.
Now length alone is not enough to understand what you are getting, because hair is often layered. LAYERS Almost all mannequins have layered hair. A layered hairstyle simply means that shorter hair is blended in with longer hair. If you look at the following illustration, you see that hair from the top do not necessarily extend all the way to the bottom. If a mannequin is made with hair grafts of the same length all around the head, you end up with dramatic layers around the whole head. So typically the mannequin is made with longer hair at the top and shorter hair in the back and at the nape. This produces a more natural layering effect. If you find a mannequin that is described as “one length”, it means there are no layers. These hairstyles are also referred to as a “blunt cut”. Non-layered mannequins are not common.
