How To Pick A Perfect Wig

Wigs are having a blast with Christina Hendricks, Vivica Fox, Lady Gaga and many other famous ladies are now changing up their hairstyles every month or even more often. Why? They use wigs that are more natural and realistic than ever before. If you’re thinking about getting one for yourself, here are the important things to consider.

Determine Your Wig Size

To find your perfect wig size, you should measure your head’s circumference from the front of your hear line, then along the back of your neck and behind your ears. Record these measurements when shopping for a wig online. Note that sizes can vary a little bit based on a brand.

Wig Cap Construction Types

New technologies made it possible to manufacture realistic looking hair products. The base of the cap means the material that is attached to the hair. The caps are durable and light and come in different sizes and types to suit different needs and head sizes. Each type has its own set of advantages.

  • Classic Wigs

In a classic wig, wefted rows of hair are sewn together. These wigs allow your head to breathe and they easily conceal the cup underneath to look natural. However, they offer less styling options due to its construction.

  • Monofilament wigs

These are modern wigs that go a step further to make your hair look natural. Each hair is placed on a mesh cap, making it looking very realistic, like hair is growing from your scalp.

These wigs are often recommended to people with hair loss due to medical conditions as they are convincing replications of natural hair growth. They can be styled in dozens of different ways, for example, you can easily make the Lady gaga wig style and then go back to your regular style.

  • Lace front wigs

These wigs can be both classic and monofilament caps. These wigs are individually tied hair on a lace. If you have a lace front wig, you can easily pull your hair back from your face to achieve a natural look.

Wig Style

Now, when you know your head size and your cup type, you should consider the wig style. From drag queen wigs to Beyoncé wig and unicorn wig, possibilities are endless. As a rule of thumb, shorter wigs are a bit easier to manage but other than that, you can get any style you want. And then you can create your own hair styles.
