People choose to wear a wig for various purposes. Some people wear a wig to change up a look, while some some do so for covering hair loss. Other people wear a wig for cosplay or other shows, etc.
When it comes to choosing a wig that is suitable or has a natural look, many people feel lost and don’t know where to start.
Today, we will talk about how to choose a wig for people who are looking for covering hair loss.
When a topper cannot cover the hair loss area effectively, then you might think of wearing a wig instead. Let’s choose a wig following the steps below one by one.
1.What new look are you looking for?
Unlike a topper, wearing a wig will bring a totally new look to you. When you are walking on the street, there must be some people’s hair that you admire and you want to have the same hair style. Now you have a target. However, the hair you admire might not suit you and you need to figure out whether the hair color will match your own skin tone. For example, jet-black hair definitely doesn’t suit a person who has a fair skin tone and a blonde hair doesn’t suit a brown skin tone, either. The first thing you need to know is the range of hair colors that will suit you. This will narrow down your choices a lot to this range of hair colors.
2.What size of a wig do you need?
By measuring the 5 sizes of your head according to the above picture, you will know which size will be yours.
3.What length are you looking for?
From the above picture, you can get a visual idea what length you need.
4.What cap construction do you like?
There are several options for the cap construction including Lace front, Full lace, Glueless full lace, Silk top full lace, and Silk top glueless full lace.
All these cap constructions have a front lace and you need to cut it before wearing. The lace front makes a wig look more natural and helps to blend in with your own skin. You can apply a little glue or hair gel to the front lace and secure it and give yourself a more natural look.
If you are not comfortable with using glue, you can choose the glueless lace wig and use it with combs, clips and a stretch panel for securing the wig.
If you want to wear a pony tail, the full lace wig would be a good option. Since there is no lace at the back for glueless lace wigs, the wig will warp up at the back when you wear a ponytail. With a full lace wig, you can apply a little glue to the back lace to prevent it from warping up.
5.What texture do you like?
Got an idea about which texture you prefer？
I bet you are clear which wig fits you the most, right?
