Ever heard the phrase "you get what you pay for"? Well it rings true a bit in every purchase. So, how much do wigs cost? When buying a wig, there are a few things to know in order to ensure you spend your money wisely.
Everyone seems to think that human hair wigs are the best choice. They are wonderfully luxurious and if you get good quality hair (which not all human hair necessarily is) there is no other feeling like it. However, there are some things to know about human hair before deciding whether it is right for you. For instance, it takes quite a bit of maintenance as you have to style it daily just like you would your own hair.
Synthetic wigs come pre-styled and are virtually hassle free when it comes to styling. Just keep it maintained properly and it provides you a much easier daily style. The synthetic hair technology has come a long way! These are not your mother's wigs anymore! Synthetic hair is beautiful and is very hard to detect the difference between human hair when you get a good quality wig.
The next factor to consider when deciding how much a wig costs, or how much you should spend on a wig is cap construction. For the most realistic scalp/part and front hairline you definitely want a monofilament top and lace front cap construction. This gives you the most natural look and also affords you some styling versatility.
The cost of buying a wig can vary anywhere from $50 - $3000. However, if you get a cap construction that is the most natural (as mentioned above) your price range is likely to be somewhere between $200 and $400 for a great quality synthetic wig. For human hair (good quality hair), you are looking at $700 - $2000. These, of course, are general estimates as certain wigs will have specific features that could increase these prices, but it is reasonable to expect these price ranges.
So, how much does it cost to buy a wig? It's up to you and the features and benefits you feel are important in your life style. The good news…There is a wig for any budget and even a less expensive wig can be a nice Choice. Just lower your expectations on the time it will last.
A good quality synthetic wig with proper care should last anywhere from 3 to 6 months of regular use. For human hair, you can easily double that timeframe.
It doesn't really matter what quality you have chosen… If you feel good in it you will look good!
