Wigs For Children

Posted on March 27 2018

Who says that hair pieces were only meant for adults? Believe it or not, there are children’s wigs out there too! Although many women wear wigs to switch up their look, children wear wigs in order to deal with alopecia, burns, or even chemotherapy. One thing that we noticed about children’s wigs is that the wigs are made to look very natural. The reason for this is to help alleviate the stress that children may feel because they’re having to wear them in the first place. Does your child or someone else you know need a wig? Well, we’re going to give you a few tips on how to choose the best kid wig for the child.

The Reliability of the Wig for Kids

This is probably the most important aspect of buying a wig for kids: making sure that it’s secure. Think about it. The average child goes nothing short of a thousand miles a minute, right? If you’re a child who is wearing a wig, the last thing that you want to think about is your wig falling off while you’re going down the slide on the playground. Even adults understand that their wigs need to be secure if they don’t want it moving around as they move. Therefore, you have to pick a wig that will grip the child’s head properly without causing any pain or discomfort. Our kids' wigs come in a wide variety of colors and hair styles and are made with top quality synthetic and 100% human hair. Specially sized for a child's head, these wigs are both durable and natural looking.

The Weight of the Wig for Kids

Because we’re talking about children here, you don’t want to mess around and purchase something that’s too heavy and will make the child feel uncomfortable. Long wigs for kids are usually the heaviest, so keep that in mind when making your selection. On top of that, children like to play and be kids, which means that there is a 99% chance that they are going to get hot at some point. Toddler wigs that aren’t heavy and feel lightweight are the best options for the babies. 

The Quality of the Wig for Kids

Like we alluded to in the intro, you have to be sure that you select a wig that looks best on your child. Think about what kind of hair that your child actually had. Was it thin? Was it thick? Use your best judgement and pick something that looks as close to how their hair was before the losses occurred. Long wigs for kids tend to be fun, but you want to make sure that it really matches the child. Also, pay close attention to the way that the hairline looks on their head. Wigs with bangs are also a great option for children!

    Hi Kavitha,

    Some wig makers can custom make wigs with you and your sisters hair. You might have to do some researching online for wig makers in your area. Or, you can reach out to manufacturers like Jon Renau to see if they can help you out with your request.

    My 6 year old son has alopecia areata and at the moment he doesn’t need a wig even though a few bald patches can be seen. I’m hoping with all my being that his immune system will stabilise and he won’t lose any more hair and he’ll have some regrowth too. This said a part of me feels along with being hopeful I should also prepare myself for the worst which is he could eventually lose all his hair. I will go down the wig route for him but feel so worried. My boy loves football and like most 6 year olds loves to run around and play. I’ve read a lot about wigs and feel that they’ll stay on but because I’ve not seen a proper wig and can’t visualise how it’ll all work out for him it freaks me out a little too.
    Is it possible to make a wig for Zack with either my own hair or his sisters hair? Once when I was watching some you tube videos on Alopecia there was an ad where this stylist who I’m taking was a hair stylist basically used a clipper on the hair going from the neck up and did this fading effect and on the crown where the person was bald he literally stuck a wig on. I didn’t pay enough attention to what was the stylist was called or where this place was. When will I know Zack needs a wig? His patches are mainly on his crown. I’m so sorry this has become a long email! I’m wondering if it maybe an idea to make a wig ready for Zack if the worst happened. I’m so lost, scared and worried about what the future holds for my boy but I’ve promised him he’ll never get laughed at school because one of his fears is losing all his hair and getting laughed at at school. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
