Beginners Guide for Buying your First Wig in 2022

Buying wigs online can be a daunting experience, particularly if doing it for the first time. Wigs can be a fun way to switch up your looks or can be a good alternative for people who suffer from any kind of hair loss.

There are several wig stores online but what are the best guides to buying your first online wig in 2022. We delve into this in this article.

1. NATURAL OR SYNTHETIC

Either of these options depends on the budget and also how often the wig will be used. Synthetic wigs are more affordable because they are made from chemical fibres. On the other hand, human hair wigs are made from natural hair. Human hair wigs are beautiful and soft.

ADVANTAGES OF HUMAN HAIR WIGS

  • Natural Looking- Human hair wigs look and feel natural because the wigs are made from real human hair.
  • Long-lasting- Human hair wigs last longer. If you choose the right wig store online and buy a good quality wig, then they can last for a few years if maintained properly.
  • Styling Versatility- Human hair wigs can be coloured, dyed, and permed just like your real hair. We however recommend getting this coloured by a professional stylist.

DOWNSIDES TO BUYING A HUMAN HAIR WIG

Cost-Human hair wigs can be quite expensive, very good human hair wigs can retail from £500 upwards and can go up to as much as £3000 depending on the wig company.

–¬†SYNTHETIC WIGS

Although synthetic wigs have a less natural feel to human hair, the more modern synthetic wigs are made from premium quality. Eternal Wigs have quite a few selections of premium synthetic wigs available of really good quality and affordable pricing

ADVANTAGES OF SYNTHETIC WIGS

  • Affordability- A good premium synthetic can retail for below ¬£100 depending on the style.
  • Low Maintenace- Low heat can only be used on synthetic wigs which means it can be worn with little or no styling.

DOWNSIDES TO A SYNTHETIC WIG

  • Not as Natural looking-Doesn’t look like a natural human hair wig
  • Less Versatile-Its not as versatile as a human hair wig.

2. HAIR QUALITY

When buying a wig online it’s important to note there are few hair qualities on the market.

Human hair wigs are available in various hair types. There are quite a few options to choose from and amongst these options are hair types such as Brazilian hair, Indian Hair, European hair, Vietnamese hair. These are the most popular hair types on the market.

European hair is generally one of the most expensive hair quality because they are sourced from real European hair.

The other types of hair quality such as Brazilian hair, and Indian hair are sourced from real virgin hair and Indian hair respectively. They can be dyed, permed, and are of good quality but less expensive than a European hair wig

3. FACE TYPE

It’s important to know face shapes matter when purchasing your first wig online. If you have an oval shape. Your face is longer than wide and your jaw is probably narrower than your cheekbones. That means your face is more proportional and you will look good with any hairstyle, length or texture.

If your face is rounder and you have a wide hairline.its best linear or geometrical styles. You can add height to your wig which will make your face less rounded(not that it’s a bad thing)

If your face is squared, your hairline jaws are wide, and height on the top is recommended. To add height, comb your head off your forehead to break the wideness a bit and you can also consider a curly wig or wisps of hair close to your face.

4. SKIN TONE

Warmer skin tones blend easily well with ashy colours and cool browns. Wigs that are silver-blonde usually match well with pale skin tone. If you prefer a darker tone then best to go with a brunette colour.

5. DO YOUR RESEARCH

As discussed earlier, there are several places to buy wigs so when choosing the best place to purchase a wig, make sure to do your research and if it is an online wig store, ask if they offer free consultations. At Eternal Wigs, we offer over-the-phone consultations to better guide you in choosing the best wig suitable for your needs.

Choosing the best wig store online doesn’t have to be a challenging experience if you do your research.
