What to Look For When Buying a Wig

An appropriate wig can make the transition less traumatic if you are experiencing hair loss due to cancer treatments or alopecia. Make sure you plan; save a strand for color-matching purposes before purchasing one that fits your head circumference measurement.


A wig can completely change how you look, giving you confidence and comfort with your appearance. Select one that complements the facial features on which it sits – for instance, if you have a round face, choose a style with a full crown that narrows toward cheekbones, while square faces should consider either wavy or straight-cut styles for best results. Or try monofilament or hand-tied styles for more natural results.


Material can have an enormous effect on the quality and durability of synthetic wigs. Different fiber types affect their sheen; better quality synthetics have natural-looking shine while being more long-wearing than less costly versions. Wigs can be constructed using human hair or synthetic fiber, though human hair is more expensive than its synthetic counterpart.


Shopping for a wig offers many color choices, from those closely resembling your natural hair to something lighter or darker. Additionally, adding highlights can create a more vibrant appearance; opting for something like a blond blonde wig with copper highlights would suit you perfectly! Both human hair and synthetic wigs typically come pre-blended with highlights for easy customization of a personalized style.


A wig’s size depends primarily on head circumference. Most wigs feature adjustable straps to allow you to customize their fit; these may come in the form of elastic, Velcro, or hooks allowing tightening or loosening for optimal results. Alternatively, this Amazon wig features a comfortable mesh cap that is stackable with glue (Testers recommend Got2B or Ghost Bond for maximum results).
