September 12th, 2023

If you're thinking of buying your first wig, it's important to consider some key factors before making a purchase. Here are some tips that will help you make the best decision when diving into the world of wigs as a newbie.
  • Size & Fit

     Make sure to measure your head and check size charts for the corresponding cap size. A proper fit is essential to ensuring comfort and a natural look.

  • Quality

    Invest in great craftsmanship; high quality materials will last the longest and look the most natural.

  • Style

    Choose a style that most resembles how you like to wear your natural hair OR pick a style you’ve always wanted to try. The best part about wearing wigs is that you can instantly change up your look– you can rock a pixie one day and a long layered style the next.

  • Color

     There’s no set rules for choosing a wig color. You can pick one that fits your personality while also considering the color of your skin tone. Using a color ring is also a helpful tool to match to your natural hair color. You can also go bold with a whimsical pastel or a fashion-forward Ombre. Have fun with it! 

  • Maintenance 

    Consider the amount of time and money you’re willing to invest in caring for your wig, as different fibers require different needs. Regular synthetic wigs are typically the most low maintenance option while human hair requires more TLC.

  • Accessories

    Don’t forget to grab must-have accessories such as wig liners, wig combs / brushes and care products formulated for the fiber you’re purchasing. Proper care will help keep your wig looking its best.

  • Budget

    High-quality wigs come at many different price points, and your budget will guide you to the selection you should look at. Synthetic wigs are more budget-friendly than human hair wigs but they don’t last as long, so keep in mind that a higher price tag is often an investment for hair that you’ll be able to get more wear out of before needing a replacement.

We hope these tips help you with your search for the perfect wig. Happy shopping!
