What to consider, when choosing your wig as a beginner
Are you considering wearing a wig for the first time? Not sure where to start or what to look for? This blog post is for you! We’ll go over some basics of what to consider when choosing a wig, including style, material, and fit. By the end of this post, you’ll have a better idea of which wig is right for you. So let’s get started!
The right cap size for a wig is important for several reasons:
1. Comfort: A properly fitting wig ensures maximum comfort by avoiding headaches, discomfort, and scalp irritation caused by a tight wig or instability due to a loose-fitting one.
2. Natural Appearance: A well-fitted wig sits securely on your head, resembling the way your natural hair would fall. This avoids a stretched or pulled appearance from a small wig or an unnatural look from a large one.
3. Confidence: Wearing a correctly fitting wig boosts your confidence as it feels comfortable and looks natural. You can enjoy your day without worrying about slipping or looking out of place, enhancing your overall self-assurance.
By considering the correct cap size, you can achieve comfort, a natural appearance, and the confidence to go about your day with ease.
Consider your hair type - Synthetic or Human Hair
When choosing between a synthetic wig and a human hair wig, consider the following:
– Affordable and low maintenance.
– Come in a variety of colors and styles.
– Durable and resistant to fading.
Human Hair Wigs:
– Provide a natural appearance and feel.
– Offer styling versatility with heat tools.
– Long-lasting with proper care.
– Lightweight and comfortable.
– Natural hair movement and flow.
Consider your budget, maintenance preferences, desired styling options, and the importance of a natural look to make the best choice for you.
Final touches by a professional Hairdresser
In some cases, seeking the assistance of a hairdresser can be beneficial to achieve the perfect look with your wig. Here’s why:
Customization: A hairdresser can customize the wig to suit your face shape, features, and personal style. They can trim the wig, add layers, or shape it to enhance your natural beauty and create a more personalized look.
Make sure to measure your head properly, before purchasing a wig, so it fits well
When you’re shopping for a wig, measure your head properly first and foremost. Getting the right size is paramount to ensure a comfortable fit. Trying to estimate the size isn’t enough; when it comes to wigs, precision is essential. Take into account factors such as your own hair type, length and colour along with recommending sizes from the store you may be purchasing from. This way, you can make sure that your new wig looks and feels natural – measure up!
Start with a style that's similar to your current style and then experiment with different looks once you get more comfortable wearing wigs

However, by following a few simple steps, you can make the process much more manageable.

Aim for a similar length and color that matches your natural hair. However, don’t shy away from using this opportunity to explore exciting and fresh styles if you feel inclined to do so!
