Wigs are having a significant position in the beauty industry. Millions of people wear wigs on a daily basis so definitely you are not alone. However, choosing a beautiful wig that compliments your style can be difficult. Don’t worry, MCSARA here to give you a wig consultation that provides you with a detailed look on various wig types and wig styles, while making recommendations on how to choose a wig.
1. Measure your head size
Just like shopping for clothes, you want to start by choosing the right size or section of the item. This is an important mission that decides how you feel. Therefore, the very first step in finding a wig is to determine your head size.
To measure the circumference of your head, you will be tracing around your hairline. To begin, take a flexible cloth or seamstress measuring tape. Starting at your forehead, trace all the way around your hairline, behind the ears, to the nape of your neck and back behind your opposite ear to meet the end of the measuring tape in front.
2. Consider your face shape
When deciding your wig style, it’s not your personal preference that should be the main consideration. Instead, you should carefully consider what type of wig style will be most suitable for your face shape. Even though you may prefer a certain wig style, the most important thing to remember is whether the wig will best flatter the shape of your head and face. This will help you determine the length, texture, and overall style of the wig to choose from.
3. Decide what hair type you love
After having your head statics, consider hairstyle you would love. When selecting a wig, you need to decide on the look you are going for. You might decide to choose a wig style that looks similar to the style of your own hair, or you might be feeling a little adventurous and seeking a new look. Either way, deciding on the color and cut will help to start you off on your buying journey!
4. Choose the cap construction best for you
When you’ve decided on a style, this will help you to decipher which cap construction is best for you. If you prefer to wear your hair away from your face, a lace front wig allows you to part the hair on the wig wherever you like. This allows you to style the wig in a way that suits you best, helping you to feel more comfortable and confident in your wonderful new wig.
5. Human hair wig or Synthetic wig?
One of the biggest decisions you need to make is whether to invest in a human hair wig or a synthetic wig. Human hair wigs are often seen as superior as they obviously feel and look like real hair, which often comes at a greater price. However, it is important to remember that you can now get synthetic wigs that look wonderfully natural. Understanding the pros and cons of both types of wigs will help you to determine which is right for you!
6. What cap size for you?
The size of the wig can make an even bigger difference than the actual style since it’s directly related to your comfort. If you get it too small, it won’t fit on your head. If it’s too big, it might be obvious you’re wearing a wig.
If you’re not sure about what size of cap you should choose, you will need to use a tailoring measuring tape to measure the circumference of your head. Measure from the front of your hairline, behind your ear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear, and then match the measuring tape back to the other end at the front of your hairline.
Tip: To make sure your measurement is accurate, try measuring at least three times to make sure your number is consistent.
7. Whether you need a wig cap?
Another decision you need to make before purchasing your wig is whether or not you need a wig cap. This is largely personal preference, but a wig cap is particularly great for those with a sensitive scalp as it acts as a protective barrier, helping to keep your wig secure and comfortable throughout wear. As wig caps aren’t costly, we recommend purchasing a pack and trying them out for yourself. Remember, the most important thing when purchasing your wig is to make sure that it is going to be comfortable!
