In this beginner’s guide to buying wigs online, we will have a look at some factors you need to keep in mind.
Things to consider before starting online wig shopping
Before you even think about purchasing a beautiful wig online, you need to clearly know what kind of wig you want to buy. Be very clear and ask yourself some questions to determine exactly what you are looking for. These questions help eliminate confusion when you are faced with the thousands of options that are available online.
Some of the questions you could ask yourself, include whether you are looking for an everyday look or something that you could wear to special occasions. You will also have to consider how much time you will want to spend on maintaining the wig. Also determine how much money you want to spend on the wig and how long you want it to last.
Consider the shape of your face
Every one of us has a uniquely shaped face. Most face shapes fall within a broad range of categories, such as round, oval, square and heart shapes. Before buying a wig for the first time online, try to figure out what the shape of your face is.
We all want to accentuate our facial features in the best way. Choosing a wig with a hairstyle that suits your face shape the best, will highlight the features you want to. There are a lot of resources to help you determine the shape of your face and advice on which type of wig will suit your face the best.
For example, if your face falls within the rounder shape category, you could look at a layered short bob or a short pixie wig. If you have a heart-shaped face, you could consider purchasing a shoulder-length wig with a swoop bang.
Decide on the type of wig you want to purchase
Before investing in your beautiful new headpiece, you need to decide which type of wig you would like to purchase. There are two main types of wigs – synthetic and human hair wigs.
Synthetic hair wigs are crafted using synthetic fibres that mimic the look of hair strands, while human hair wigs are constructed using real human hair. There are several advantages and disadvantages for both of these types of wigs. If you need a wig that requires minimal effort and styling, a synthetic might be the way to go. If you want a wig that looks super natural and moves like human hair would, a human hair wig is your best choice. However, experts recommend that if you are investing in a wig for the first time, and you are ordering online, a synthetic wig might be a better option.
Synthetic wigs are easy to maintain, which is better if you are buying a wig online for the first time. They are also more affordable than human hair wigs, which means that you might have the option to buy more than one wig if you would like to play around with more than one look.
Consider the cap construction
The true inner workings of a top-quality wig are within the cap construction. If you are looking for a wig that will look natural and last a long time, you need to consider whether the cap construction is up to standard.
It is hard to see what the cap construction is like when buying online. We recommend reading reviews about the wigs and their cap construction before making a purchase. This will help you to get a better idea of whether a wig is worth it or not.
Different kinds of cap constructions are also available, one of the most popular being a lace front wig. These wigs blend in with your scalp flawlessly and create the illusion that your beautiful wig is your own hair.
