Wigs for Kids

Wigging Out In Kid's Wigs

These days you don’t hear much about kid’s wigs. Ideally, alternative hair should be a choice, not a necessity. The truth is adults aren’t the only ones afflicted with hair loss. While hair loss is a difficult thing to manage, especially for a child, wigs are the perfect solution. The good news is more and more styles are becoming age appropriate for children.

This week we want to showcase this fabulous Junior Wig Collection: Ashley, Dylan, Emily and Shiloh by Jon Renau. You’ll find the perfect wig style for the little one in your life!


Great wig for kids from Jon Renau Junior Wig Collection

This wig is a long layered synthetic hair style and perfect for the girly girl! The double-layered monofilament part helps create the illusion of natural hair growth at the scalp. Ashley is available in sizes, petite and ultra petite for adolescents. The side-swept bang gives this kid’s wig a modern look for that fashion-conscious young lady!

Tip: Add a hair accessory or pull it up in a pony to change up the look. Watch this video to learn more about Ashley.

Short and spunky, this pixie cut can be worn by both boys and girls. This kid wig style is made with an open cap and lightweight materials, which make it very comfortable to wear. Dylan can be worn with a hair accessory to sass it up. We love how this short cut wig brings out the sassy in our model, Abby!

Tip: Add a bit of shaping cream to set the texture and layers. Watch this video to learn more about Dylan.

This medium length wig with bangs is so cute and age appropriate. The Emily wig features a double-layered monofilament top, which extends from the hairline all the way to the wig’s nape. This feature is important because of the versatility it allows for center part hairstyles. Doesn’t our model Abby look adorable in pig tails?

Tip: Braid pig tails, or put up in ponytail to change the style. Watch this video to learn more about Emily.

The bob style is a timeless cut that both adults and children can wear. Shiloh is a childhood classic! This kid wig style is also made with a double-layered monofilament part, creating the appearance of natural hair growth at the part. If you’re worried about a wig making your child appear too old, the Shiloh is a great option. Most of us have all had this round cut as a child. Our mothers no doubt loved this cut for its low-maintenance. Also, have you noticed how cute and round children’s cheeks appear in this style? Resist the urge to pinch! Your kid will thank you for it.

Tip: Change up the bangs by cutting them or sweeping them off the side. Watch this video to learn more about Shiloh.

Behind the Scenes

Model Abigail Gonzales had a lot of fun wearing all four wig styles! She was a pleasure to work with.

    Hi, it's not always possible to find young models with alopecia and hair loss. However, we plan to do this in the future for sure. Thank you for your comment :)

    I don't think people should judge the people you chose to model your wigs, a lot of children like to wear wigs and this is even if they still have hair, it is a costly way of having a change to your hair but it's a lot safer to wear 1 than to dye your hair.
    I would love to be offered the chance to model child wigs for this website and would like to see normal people featured because models are a little well done and this 1 did have too much make-up on for her age and I wouldn't need that and it's hard to get these wigs in the UK unless you order online, no 1 near me stocks Jon Renau's junior collection and I don't like to order online because it is bound to be delivered when I'm out but I am proud of your website and I hope to see much greater things to come.

    An 11 year old with Alopecia usually has much thinner hair than is evident in these pictures. We need something that helps to transition from "some hair" to no hair, without looking like they have suddenly grown hair so thick and full, that it is easily spotted. We are living through this, but it would also help if schools would allow scarves to be worn as an every day accessory.

    How do these wigs work for kids that play sports year round and what about summertime swimming? Do I need a special band or material to help make it more secure?

    Joellen, thank you so much for you comment. You bring up a very good point. Wigs have come a long way and brands continue to design with innovative products. No doubt we'll see something more suitable to help children during this transition period in the near future. In the meantime, something that can be done during that transition period is having a professional stylist thin out a children's wig ( to match the child's natural hair density. We hope that helps, and thank you again for your comment.

    Hi! Even though none of our African American brands offer children's wigs, all children's wigs can be worn by any ethnicity. The key is selecting a flattering color and style. If there is an adult wig you think would suit your child, you can considering having the cap tailored to fit their head. This can be done by a wig stylist or professional. Adult sizes can be tightened to 21.5” around the circumference. Depending on the age of the child, this cap may still work.

    We hope that helps and thank you for your comment!
