How to Purchase Your First Wig

Buying a wig for the first time can seem like a very frustrating experience. It’s hard to decide where to go, what to look for, or how much money to spend on your wig. The best way to start out is to really sit down and think about what type of wig you’re looking for. Yes it’s fun to be sassy and sexy but your wig must fit the occasion. Are you going to wear your wig everyday or is it for a special event? Here’s a sample list you can use to help you decide.

Where are you going to wear your Lace Front Wigs wig?
Your wig should fit the environment. For example, if you are going to have brunch with your friends at an upscale location a shiny bright red wig with spikes might not work.

What’s the occasion? Is it a wedding or someone’s birthday? You don’t want to be the center of attention at someone else’s event. Be a good guest and blend in with the crowd.

What time is the event?
Certain wigs go with certain times of the day. If you are going out to a night club you might not want to wear your everyday wig. This is the time to get sexy and sassy honey.

What are you wearing?
This is very important. Please and again I say please make sure that your wig does not take attention away from your brand new outfit. Ask one of your friends or send me a picture of what you’ve put together and I will tell you the truth! I’m not claiming to be an expert but I do care about the appearance of myself and others. And yes I do wear wigs and hair extensions on occasion.

How much do you want to spend?
Believe me, a more expensive wig does not always mean better. If you want to spend a lot of money and it makes you feel good by all means go ahead. But honestly, there are a lot of good wigs and hair extensions out there for a reasonable price. I am in the Seattle area and I will list my favorite places at your request.

Wigs come in different hair types the two most commonly used are synthetic or human hair. Synthetic wigs are made up of several different man-made synthetic fibers such as nylon, dynel, and acetate to name a few. Human hair wigs are actually made from human hair. The finest healthiest hair is selected for human hair wigs.

After you have decided what type of wig you want to purchase it is now time to decide on the style, color, and length of the wig. This is where your list comes in. You may want a long straight wig or you may want to go with something short and curly. It’s very important that the style of the wig fits the shape of your face. For example, if you have a long face you don’t want a long straight wig. It might make your face look even longer. Also, if you have a round face you shouldn’t wear a short straight style. This could make your face look more full and fat.

This is very important; please try the wig on at the store. The store clerks are usually good about letting you try on a few wigs before you make your purchase. The fake head that the wig is sitting on looks nothing like you so please try the wig on. It’s a good idea to purchase a wig cap to take with you while shopping for your wig. The wig seller will most likely ask you to buy one anyway. I’ve come across a few that will let you have one but not very many. Finally, many wig stores make it very difficult to return wigs so please be sure you’ve chosen the wig that you want before you hand over your hard earned money.
