Wigs have so much use beyond just beauty. Wigs help lots of women and men with confidence, self expression, empowerment, etc. Choosing the right wig for you is not as daunting as it may appear. We know that having multiple options at your disposal might make you overwhelmed hence the reason for this information to help you decide on the perfect lace wig for you.
Things you need to know before hitting that buy button:
1. Know your cap size. Watch our video on measuring your head size here. A closely fitted wig gives the most comfortable feeling, perfect fit and natural look to your wig. Always double check your head measurements to cross check and confirm the data.
2. Know what length and texture you desire. You must be realistic and practical about this option so that your wig will serve you the best. Determine how often you will be wearing your wig, what activities will you be doing while wearing your wig, how much time can or will you take to install your wig and how much effort will you want to allocate to caring for your wig?. Know that curly textures requires a lot of care and lace frontal wigs require more time and skill to install, longer lengths such as 20" and up needs gentler strokes when brushing especially during wig maintenance.
3. Another thing to consider before buying is the price tag. Keep in mind that lace frontal wigs, colored wigs, wigs with longer hair lengths and wigs with curly hair textures costs more.
