When looking into wigs, the options can be incredibly overwhelming. From length to color, to material, how do you know where to start? The first thing to understand is what exactly synthetic hair is. A synthetic wig and a human hair wig are mostly the same except for the fiber.
While human hair wigs need to be restyled after washing like real hair, synthetic wigs are better at holding the original style even after multiple washes. And with the recent advances, synthetic hair fiber can feel and appear as natural looking as real hair!
What Are The Best Synthetic Wig Brands?
One of the best things about synthetic wigs is that they can be worn right out of the box, only needing a bit of a shake!

With so many brands and options, it can be quite a task to sift through the first few pages in your searching. But fear not! We have handpicked our all time favorite brands and their best-sellers just for you.
Raquel Welch - Editor's Pick | Synthetic Lace Front Wig
Raquel Welch Editor's Pick is an above the shoulder layered bob wig, comes styled with loose, bouncy waves. The softly waved top and bangs blend perfectly into full layers that make for a trendy, tousled look that can be finger styled or brushed into a fuller silhouette of soft waves. Plus, the temple-to-temple lace front and monofilament top offer off-the-face styling and varied parting options, which means styling choices are almost limitless. This one is one of my top picks; it comes in 26 colors, so it is perfect for any skin tone and is flattering for most face shapes.
Gabor - Gratitude | Synthetic Wig
Something unique about the Gabor line is they have both synthetic wigs and synthetic heat friendly wigs - this wig is the latter. Gratitude is from the Gabor Essentials Collection and features a layered cut with added volume at the crown, reminiscent of the late Princess Diana.
The heat-friendly fiber comes perfectly styled out of the box but can be touched up using hot tools. It's a short wig that's feminine yet comfortable. For a look that perfectly suits your face shape, have your stylist trim the eyelash bang. This cut is effortlessly royal and flatters women of any age.
BelleTress - M&M | Synthetic Lace Front Wig
Like Gabor, this brand also has synthetic and heat-friendly synthetic options. The name is a tribute to the style icon that stole America's heart, Marilyn Monroe.
This style being a stunning homage to her signature look. M&M has large layers with fringe in the front and shorter layers in the back. They are accentuated by chic partial monofilament side-part with a full lace front that allows you to wear the hair off the face with the natural hairline. The tousled modern waves create added movement and body, while bringing out the eyes as they frame the face.
Jon Renau - Kristen | Synthetic Lace Front Wig
This brand is at the forefront of both human hair and synthetic wigs, and well as expertly design hair toppers. Kristen is a customer favorite from the synthetic collection and it only takes one look to know why!
