The Wig Buyer's Guide

New to Wigs? If you're unclear about how to narrow down styles and pick ones that will work best for you, our Wig Buyer's Guide is here to help! Like selecting a diamond, choosing a wig requires some understanding and appreciation for details. This guide will walk you through the ins and outs of the 4 Cs of Wigs: Cut, Cap Size, Composition and Color.

First C: Cut

Start with style! Our site lets you easily narrow your search by length, texture and hairstyle. At the beginning, you may want to stick close to a style you're familiar with. A more drastic change can always be made later as you get used to wearing a wig. That's when the fun begins. Just think: endless style flexibility! Many of our clients ultimately have a lot of fun experimenting with a variety of looks. Certain face shapes are flattered by certain styles. Consult our guide for some tips!

Second C: Cap

While average size wigs tend to fit about 95% of customers, you will find that quite a few wigs also come in petite and large sizes. Consider that many also have adjustable straps that give up to 1/2" so that you can achieve a comfortable and secure fit.

To determine the right size wig for you, measure the circumference of your head from the front hairline, behind your ear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear and then back to the front hairline. Jot down your measurement, then consult the table below. Please note that sizes may vary slightly by brand and that not all wigs are available in all cap sizes.
 

Third c: Construction

Different cap constructions each have a different method of attaching hair to the cap, and each has its own set of advantages
100% HAND-TIED
• Creates the most natural movement as each hair moves freely
• Each hair on the entire cap is hand-tied onto the base
• The softest and most comfortable cap, it's ideal for a sensitive scalp & hair loss
• Allows for styling versatility as you can comb the hair in any direction
• Also known as 100% hand-knotted
MONOFILAMENT
• Creates the illusion of natural hair growth from the scalp where the hair is parted
• Each hair is individually hand-tied to a sheer base (but not entire cap)
• Can be found just at the crown, along a pre-defined part or across the full top
• A full mono top allows for parting & styling versatility
• A double mono has an extra layer of soft material for added comfort
LACE FRONT
• Creates the illusion of a natural-looking front hairline
• Each hair is individually hand-tied to a section of sheer lace (but not entire cap)
• Allows for styling hair away from the face
• Most are ready-to-wear & temple-to-temple
• Made with a delicate material that should be handled with care.
BASIC CAP
• Includes both capless and traditional constructions
• Most durable & affordable
• Most or all of the cap has open wefting for better air ventilation
• Often gives the hair a natural lift with built-in volume at the crown
• Hair is pre-teased at the root to help mask the cap beneath.
 

Forth C: Colour

As most styles offer a range of color choices, this is a good final step. As you zero in on styles you like, you can begin to review the colors available. If you're new to wearing wigs, consider staying close to your natural shade to ease the transition.
