    Just like clothing, hairstyles can be slimming too!
    Of course the style or cut of your wig won't actually slim your face - it's all an illusion, right? But to give your face a more slender appearance, follow these simple rules:

    1. Avoid straight lines in your cut. Choose a wig with more shapely curves that compliment and soften the face shape, instead of working against it. This will also draw attention to facial features such as your eyes and lips in a good way.

    2. Avoid straight-across bangs. Though blunt cut bangs may still be in style, they tend to shorten and widen the appearance of the face. Show off your forehead (where we don't gain weight). Try side-swept bangs instead as they will make your face appear longer and thinner.

    3. Avoid blunt haircuts. Blunt hairstyles like the geometric bob cut that Katie Holmes and Rihanna have worn will harshen your features and widen your face. Instead, opt for a longer, textured and layered cut. Go for softness and movement.

    We know what you're thinking: What were wigs like back in the day? And how did wigs come about?
    Wigs.com did some research for you on the history and the centuries-old art of wigs...

    Wigs were first worn centuries ago in ancient Egypt by kings and royalty to display their nobility as well as shield their shaved heads from the sun. Of course long ago, technology was limited, and Egyptian wigs were made with plant fibers, animal hair, and similar materials. The Greeks and Romans also wore wigs for religious purposes, to show nobility, and in the theater.

    Starting in the early 17th century, the well-known oversized, curly wigs became fashionable. Again, a sign of the upper class, these wigs were mainly worn by men. The wigs were often very heavy, made with natural human hair; horse and goat hair were cheaper alternatives used.

    In the 18th century, men's wigs were powdered for that recognizable white color . At that time, women did not wear wigs but still had their hair coiffed and supplemented with artificial hair... hairpieces and extensions! What was wig powder made of back then? Finely ground starch that was scented with orange flower or lavender. On occasion - for that little extra something - the wig powder was colored violet, pink, yellow or blue. How creative!

    Some famous wig-wearers:

    King Louis XIV of France really made a splash in men's fashion with his lavish wigs.

    Queen Elizabeth I of England famously wore many red wigs, most in the 'Roman' style. 

    Marie Antoinette – in the French court of Versailles, women often wore large, elaborate and sometimes themed wigs such as the stereotypical "boat poufs" that were in vogue during those days. Marie Antoinette and the ladies of the court frequently wore extensions and hairpieces in these over-the-top hairstyles.

    Over the last several decades, wigs have risen in popularity, but are generally worn for different reasons than in the past. Wigs are frequently worn for medical reasons or as an easy alternative to many hair replacement therapies. On another end of the spectrum, wigs are worn by male cross-dressers, for costume purposes, and even by women who just don't feel like styling their own hair - they just like wearing wigs!

    Stars such as Dolly Parton, Raquel Welch, and Cher have really popularized wigs. Wigs are also worn for television, theater and film so that the actor may fully feel and look like their character.

    So what’s the big deal with 'Real' hair versus synthetic fiber? In truth, there are pros & cons to both types of hair - whether you're purchasing wigs, extensions or hairpieces. 
    To name a few: you can treat human hair wigs just like your own; you can cut, color and style them as you would the hair on your own head! Plus they feel soft and look most natural. However, human hair wigs are more expensive, in part due to the rising demand for quality hair. Synthetic fiber wigs are ready to wear right out of the box and are generally very affordable. The hair even stays put in bad weather. However, most synthetic wigs cannot be styled with heat tools or dyed. 

    Watch our Human Hair vs Synthetic video to learn the features & benefits of real hair and synthetic fiber, so you can make an informed decision when purchasing.
