Are you ready to let your inner Dolly Parton shine?
The legendary country singer is renowned for her fabulous hair, but you might be surprised to learn that she often donned a wig (see here for what she looks like without one.)
Wigs give you the option to explore your dream hairstyle. But buying quality wigs can prove challenging.
Continue reading for 7 helpful tips for buying a wig.
Have a Style Idea
Buying a wig gives you the freedom to style your hair any way you can imagine. A few aspects for you to consider when choosing the right style for you include:
- Hair color
- Hair length
Take some time and imagine a few different styles before deciding on a single one. This will help you find the best real wig that fits properly.
Know the Types of Quality Wigs
The two primary wigs are made from synthetic materials or human hair. While synthetic wigs are more affordable options for fake hair but human hair wigs tend to be of better quality.
A big difference between the two? You can style and wash human hair wigs much easier.
Choose a Wig That Fits
Interestingly enough, most wigs do not come in one size. Every head is different, and you’ll want to take considerable care in choosing a wig that matches the shape of your head.
A quick way to find your head measurements is to take a tape measure around the center of your forehead. Don’t measure too tight, as you want your wig to fit comfortably.
Choose a Wig with Lace Fronts
Quality wigs with lace front hairlines have individually tied hair blended into thin lace material at the front hairline. These give the impression that the hair is growing right from the scalp. Lace front wigs tend to look more natural than regular wigs, especially when you’re not wearing bangs.
Buy From Good Wig Sellers
With the rise of the internet, choosing a wig has never been easier. However, there are plenty of wig retailers with deceitful intent, and the wig you buy could be of lesser quality than you paid for.
Take time to research your wig seller. Common attributes of a quality vendor include someone that has knowledgeable answers to your questions and someone that takes the time to help you find a wig that meets your style request.
Wear Your Wig When Having It Styled
Especially when you’ve purchased a human hair wig, you’ll want to wear it as you get it styled and cut. This allows you to see what the style will look like as it’s being modified.
