When it comes to wigs, many women feel overwhelmed. There are so many different styles and colors to choose from, how can you be sure that you are making the right decision? Let’s offer some tips on how to find the right wig for your appearance so that you can get the decision right on the first attempt. Whether you are looking for a new style or want to cover up a bald patch after medication or medical treatments, we have you covered!

What Do You Want to Achieve?

Perhaps most importantly, you need to understand what it is you want to achieve with your wig. Are you looking for a new style? Do you want to add some volume to your hair? Are you looking to cover up a bald patch or alopecia? Once you know what you want to achieve, it will be much easier to find the right wig for your appearance.

As those who have shopped the Madison Hair Collection will tell you, everybody has different reasons for wanting a wig. Here are some of the most common reasons why people choose to wear wigs:

  • They’re undergoing treatment for cancer and have lost their hair as a result.
  • They have alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss.
  • They want to add volume or length to their hair.
  • They want to try out a new style without commitment.
  • They want to cover up a bald spot.

Your Existing Hair

In truth, everybody has unique hair and, as such, unique hair needs. You might have very fine hair, for example, or very thick hair. Your hair might be curly or straight; it might be frizzy or smooth. All of these factors will come into play when you are choosing a wig since different wig materials will suit different types of hair better.

If you’re new to this field, you might not be aware that there are different wig materials on the market. The three most popular wig materials are human hair, synthetic fibers, and lace front wigs. In general, human hair wigs are the most expensive but also the most natural looking and feeling. Synthetic fibers are usually less expensive but can look and feel less natural. Lace front wigs are a type of human hair wig that has a lace base, which gives the illusion of a natural hairline.

Your Face Shape

Sadly, one of the most commonly forgotten factors when choosing a wig is your face shape. Just like with haircuts, certain wig styles will suit different face shapes better. If you’re unsure of your face shape, ask your hairdresser or look at the common face shapes online.

Round faces suit wigs with lots of volume on top, like pixie cuts or any style with layers since this will help to create the illusion of a longer, thinner face. If you have an oval face shape, you’re lucky as most wig styles will suit you. Just avoid anything too heavy around the jawline as this can make your face look wider.

On the other hand, those with heart-shaped faces should look for wig styles that add volume around the jawline to balance out the width of the forehead. And finally, square faces need soft, wispy styles to help create the illusion of a more rounded face.

Now that you know your face shape, it’s time to pick a style. If you’re not sure where to start, speak to experts for guidance.
