7 Things You Definitely Should Know When You Choose A Wig

New to Wigs? If you're unclear about how to narrow down styles and pick ones that will work best for you, we are  here to help! Like selecting a diamond, choosing a wig requires some understanding and appreciation for details. Here are all the details you should know for choosing a human hair wig.

1.Start wig style

At the beginning, you may want to stick close to a style you're familiar with. A more drastic change can always be made later as you get used to wearing a wig. That's when the fun begins. Just think: endless style flexibility! Many of our clients ultimately have a lot of fun experimenting with a variety of looks. Certain face shapes are flattered by certain styles. Consult our guide for some tips!

2.Hair Color

First time wig wearers should stick to wig colors and styles that are close to their current style and color. This will help to get used to a slightly different look and will make the transition between styles more comfortable. For a natural look, choose the same shade as your natural hair, or a wig within one shade. This means that the wig is more likely to suit your warm or cool coloring. When in doubt, go slightly lighter as dark colors can overwhelm the face. Use a color chart or color ring to match a wig to your natural color. Before buying, do some research about the different materials wigs are made from, as well as wig caps, heads, and underpinnings to find the best wig for you.

3.Hair Texture.

Here are two types of hair texture Silky hair and the Yaki hair .Most of our human hair wigs are the silky hair texture ,silky hair is the normal texture for most people .

Yaki hair is a type of hair that looks and feels similar to African American hair. It goes through a special type of processing in order to look like straight hair. The process is also known as "relaxing the hair."There are different types of yaki hair available, with regular straight yaki hair being the most common. Other types include kinky straight that is fluffy and thicker, making it more natural, and curly yaki hair.

4.Hair Density

Density is defined as how thick or thin you want your hair to be. The standard density is 120% which is Medium Density . however, your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.If you need thick hair you can choose 150% .But if you need more thicker or thinner hair we can also custom the 180% and 100% density for you.

5.Lace Color

Please match the lace color with your scalp complexion not your skin tone. This is because when you part the unit, you want it to appear as your natural scalp color. We have two lace colors,the light brown and the transparent . So to check your scalp color - part your hair and look at the color of your scalp to determine your lace color .

6.Cap Construction

We have two types of the cap construction ,the lace front and full lace

lace front wig is exactly what it sounds like. This wig has a sheer lace strictly in the front edges of the unit that are cut off just prior to be installed on your head. The lace front wig provides the illusion of a natural hair line. The base of a lace front wig isn't made of lace,it can only do free part in the front lace part.

Full lace wigs have a base that is made fully of lace unlike the lace front wig. It can do the free parting on the whole wig .This means full lace wigs are a bit more versatile than a lace front wig, because they can be worn in different hair styles. This puts full lace wigs at a higher price point than a lace front wig as well.But for the everyday wear we suggest you choose the full lace wig cause it is more natural and easy to style than the lace front wig.

Different cap constructions each have a different method of attaching hair to the cap, and each has its own set of advantages. 

100% hand tied

  • Creates the most natural movement as each hair moves freely
  • Each hair on the entire cap is hand-tied onto the base
  • The softest and most comfortable cap, it's ideal for a sensitive scalp & hair loss
  • Allows for styling versatility as you can comb the hair in any direction
  • Also known as 100% hand-knotted

Lace Front

  • Creates the illusion of a natural-looking front hairline
  • Each hair is individually hand-tied to a section of sheer lace (but not entire cap)
  • Allows for styling hair away from the face
  • Most are ready-to-wear & temple-to-temple
  • Made with a delicate material that should be handled with care

7. Find Your Cap size

While average size wigs tend to fit about 95% of customers, you will find that quite a few wigs also come in petite and large sizes. Consider that many also have adjustable straps that give up to 1/2" so that you can achieve a comfortable and secure fit.

To determine the right size wig for you, measure the circumference of your head from the front hairline, behind your ear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear and then back to the front hairline. Jot down your measurement, then consult the table below. Please note that sizes may vary slightly by brand and that not all wigs are available in all cap sizes.

Hope all of these can help you choose a best wig for you
