The Complexity of Wig Color

If you’ve been purchasing the same wig in the same color for years, you’ve probably run into the situation where the manufacturer decided they are no longer producing your wig in that color. And if you’ve tried to replace it for a similar wig in the same color but maybe a different material, you’ve probably been disappointed because the color doesn’t look the same as it did on your monitor when you received it.  Frustrating!

How Color Affects Wigs

The reason this happens is because the material a wig is made of will affect the color.

If you paint three objects the same color but one is made of brass, the other of plastic and the third of wood, the brown color will look different on each one.

In the same way the same shade of brown will look different on a wig made of human hair, synthetic fiber, and even heat-friendly synthetic wigs.
