How much is ‘too much’ for the price of a real hair wig? Or what is the minimum cost, below which you should begin to be wary of the quality of the wig? If you’re trying to keep a balance between premium quality and your budget, these questions are worth considering.
To help you buy better, therefore, this article takes a look at the cost of real hair wigs around the world and, more specifically, in UK.
As you may have guessed or noticed, there is no ‘one price fits all’ with real hair wigs. And this is because factors such as the human hair used for the wig, as well as the construction/wigging process, influence what price each wig store pegs their wigs at. Let’s take a closer look at how these factors affect the cost of real hair wigs.
- Human hair used
There are different types of human hair used for real hair wigs. Whether the hair is Remy, Brazilian or virgin will affect the cost of the wig, as these hair types are sourced differently. Remy hair wigs, being the ‘premium’ type, will naturally cost more than other wig types.
- Wigging process
The entire effort and cost of obtaining the hair, cap, and other tools/machinery, as well as constructing the human hair bundles into a wig will all factor in the total cost of the finished wig. This effort and cost vary from country to country, store to store, and wig to wig. Thus, it results in the varying prices of real hair wigs.
While prices vary from store to store due to these factors, on average, a real hair wig can cost between $600 to $5000.
Of course, it is possible to find a wig that costs slightly below the minimum $600 or slightly above the maximum $5000. After all, that’s how averages work. However, a wig that is priced well over $5000 ($9000, for example) just might be a rip-off. In the same way, a $20 wig is very likely not made of real human hair. Even if it is, the quality may have been compromised or it may be a blend with synthetic, factory-produced hair.
Cost of real hair wigs in UK
In the UK, the cost of real hair wigs falls anywhere from £300 to £3000. The reason behind this wide range is the same as the factors discussed above – the source of hair and workmanship.
Even if you’ve been buying wigs for ages, it is important to ensure that, for the current market, you are getting a fair deal with the cost of your wigs.
Remember, how much a real hair wig costs depends on several factors, including the location of the wig store and where they source their real human hair bundles from. As human hair wigs vary in type, style, and wig construction, these differences can also affect the actual cost of the wig you seek to buy. However, all factors put together brings the average cost of real hair wigs to $600-$5000 (or £300-£3000), as seen in this article.
So, the next time you see the price tag of a wig you like, you can confidently add it to your cart knowing it’s not overpriced. And even though the price does not directly equate to its quality, there are high chances that an underpriced wig is of low, compromised quality.
