Help finding life-size wig head

Hey, I'm looking for a life-size wig head to style my wig on. I don't want to style my wig on the wig head, only to find when I try it on that I have styled it to fit only the tiny wig head, and now have to buy a new wig and start all over. I've been searching, but I can't seem to find anything. Help?

My method is to just bulk my wig head up with newspaper and tape until it's 23" around to match mine.

Try the "Male" Wig heads, they're more accurate size wise to well a realistic size. The women one are much more smaller

I paper mache'd one. I just used an old can and filled it halfway with dirt to make a neck, then blew up a balloon and checked in the mirror until it was roughly the same size as my head. Then I just covered it with paper mache. Seems a realistic size to me, my wig looks fine on it.

This. They're 22.5" in circumference instead of 18 or whatever it is the female ones are, and the height generally matches up a lot better too. They cost a couple dollars more, but I think the convenience is worth it.

^ love my "Male" for this reason. I still have to pad him out to create updos so I'm looking to get a wig block as well.
