The Wig Buyer’s Guide
New to wigs? Great news! The craftsmanship in wigs is better than ever and so it's pretty easy to get an amazing natural look that is comfortable and completely secure.
There are three simple but important things to know before buying your wig:
1. HAIRSTYLE- Are you willing to take a risk and change up your look? Go completely short or take a long shot! Maybe you want your look closer to your biological hair style.
If this is going to be your first wig, we recommend you stick as close to your current style or style you feel most comfortable in. Remember… A wig is a perfect hairstyle.
After the honeymoon period in your first wig… We encourage you to think outside the box and try different styles and colors that you feel may suit you or you have always wanted to try. Wigs make this easy! Have fun with the advantage of being able to put on a perfect hairstyle in a minute!Even when wearing a wig that is extremely similar to your biological hair… You are going to feel like you look different.... because you do. You will have PERFECT hair! Our suggestion is to stay as close to what you are familiar with until you get comfortable in your new wig! Play it safe;-)
2. COLOR- The most exciting aspect of wearing wigs is that you don't have to commit to any chemical damage or long term look as you can change colors as often as you change your mind! However, if this is your first wig we do suggest to play it safe and go with the color you are most familiar and comfortable with. (are you noticing a theme here?;) Because wigs are always going to look foreign on your head even if it is the best quality money can buy... you will feel like you dont look like you! But you will warm up to perfect hair pretty quickly. This is why we suggest staying with a style and color close to what you already know. But for the more adventurous spirit, go for it... have the hair you have always wanted to try!
For the most natural look we always suggest going for a rooted color or a hair color with highlights and depth. This gives a bit more of a natural look and feel over solid colors.
Remember, different lighting (outside, inside) will reflect a difference in color so make sure to check your wig in both when deciding your favorite color.
3. LIFESTYLE– your lifestyle, schedule, and ability to style hair should be taken into consideration when buying a wig. How much time do you have to spend or are willing to spend on styling your hair? What climate will you be in? And of course… budget!
Someone with little time or ability to style their hair every day may want to consider staying with a synthetic hair wig as they are light weight and already pre-styled. So, no matter the weather, you never lose your style! Of course, there is nothing exactly like human hair wigs. But they do have to be styled each time and are pricey.
The answer to these questions will determine whether your best options are synthetic hair or human hair wigs. They are both amazing and have their advantages over the other… But the most important thing is to figure out which works best for you.
Style, color, and lifestyle… figure these things out and you can now head in the right direction towards your perfect match!
