2 Tips For Choosing Your First Wig

Posted on

Wigs give you a huge versatility in your looks. You can change your look from one day to the next simply by putting on a new wig. It doesn't matter if you are getting a wig because you have lost your hair or if you want to try something new without a permanent commitment, wigs can give you that ability. If you are getting ready to buy your first wig, you might be looking at all the choices and not sure which one to get. You can consider a few things that will make getting a good starter wig a lot easier for you. 

Human versus Synthetic

One of the first things you will need to consider is whether you want to go with a human or a synthetic hair wig. They both have their pros and cons. Human hair wigs come in two basic types. One is European hair; the other is Asian hair. The difference between the two is just where the hair is sourced. European hair comes from people in Europe. Asian hair comes from people in Asia. Human hair wigs are considered the best, which can be costly. A human hair wig can be washed and styled daily. Synthetic wigs are made from a variety of fibers. They generally come set into a particular style, and you can usually wear them as soon as you get them. You can find a hairdresser who will style your wig for you. Synthetic wigs are less expensive but don't last as long as human hair wigs.

Wig Cap Size

The wig cap is the material inside the wig where the hair is attached. Those come in different sizes. When looking for wigs, you want one that will fit comfortably over your head without sliding around or feeling too tight. The way to do that is to measure your head. Start at the hairline on your forehead, and wrap a measuring tape or piece of string around your head along your hairline until it meets. When you have that measurement, you can look at size charts to see where you fall on them. That can help you find a wig cap that will fit your head well.

If you are going to get your first wig, it can be challenging to know where to start. Knowing a couple of things can make finding a wig that will work for you easier.
