Wonderful Wigs That Wear Well

Gone are the days when the only remedies for hair loss were the “comb over” or ill-fitting wigs. New technology has advanced to the point where wigs now look like real hair. If you would like to experience the difference a wig that looks and feels natural can make in your life, there are a few things to consider. This simple guide will help you make the right decision on a wig.

Today’s wigs come in two types that are both far beyond the wigs of yesteryear: Human Hair and Synthetic Hair. The Human Hair wigs are the more expensive of the two. We’ll start with some information about Human Hair wigs.

Human Hair

As you might imagine, wigs that are made from human hair usually look and feel more natural than synthetic hair. They are also really versatile and can be styled and cut to suit your requirements. Human hair wigs are quite durable when properly cared for and can last for over a year.

Synthetic Hair

Wigs that are made from synthetic hair have improved tremendously in recent years, and some high-quality synthetic wigs actually look and feel like human hair. An unexpected benefit of synthetic hair is that it won’t droop or frizz when exposed to bad weather conditions. Also, you can wear this hair with little or no styling. Now, of course, synthetic hair isn’t as versatile as human hair, and, dependent on use, these wigs generally last a few months or longer. The great benefit for many is that synthetic hair wigs are more affordable than those made from human hair.

Cap Size

Not all wigs are designed to fit you perfectly. When we help choose the right wig for our clients, we customize and choose one that fits right and matches that person’s lifestyle. This is why it’s important to get professional help when choosing a wig.

Cap Features

There are a variety of cap types as well. Some cap types allow each hair to move freely because the hair has been hand-tied to the cap. Other cap types imitate hair growth from the scalp, while still others give the appearance of natural hair growth along the hairline. As you see and understand these key features of different caps it should become apparent to you which type will suit you best.

Color and Length

One of the best things about wearing a wig is the option of choosing different colors and lengths to suit your style. Imagine being able to change your hairstyle and hair color as often as you like!

When you purchase your first wig, you may want to stick with a familiar style. As you become more confident, you can branch out and experiment with different looks.

Wigs really have come a long way in recent years. You’re likely to be amazed if you haven’t closely examined wigs in the past year or so. The good news about these recent advancements in wig technology is that you don’t need to let hair loss hold you back in living the life you desire! Choose a wonderful wig and get out there to live your life with confidence.
