Want To Try A Wig For Fun? Here Are All The Tips You Need

Women's wigs aren't just for those who are having issues with their hair. Wigs are fun – they are great for costumes, or for sprucing up your look for a special occasion. Whether you want to spice things up with your significant other or just want long hair for a wedding, there can be a wide range of benefits from wigs. However, good quality headpieces can be quite costly. The average cost of a quality genuine hair wig ranges from $800 to $3,000. It's important that you take good care of your investment – here are some tips on what you need in a wig and how to take care of it.  

How to Get the Right Size

The fit of the wig will be of prime importance for your comfort, the most natural look and the most security. Measure around your hairline, from your forehead to the back of your head and then from ear to ear. Most wigs will give measurements so you can simply match them up. You can also visit a professional salon for a fitting.

Synthetic or Genuine Human Hair?

Human hair wigs have some great attributes – they are the most realistic looking and feeling. They can also be styled just like your head hair. However, they tend to be more expensive than synthetics and their color can fade over time. Synthetics don't fade like human hair models, and they don't need to be styled, therefore cutting down on your maintenance. However, they are more course in material and most do not look as realistic. You will need to weigh your budget and styling needs to decide between the two materials.

Putting the Wig on Properly

Smooth back your natural hair, and if your hair is long, braid it and pin it to your head. Find the front of the wig, and slide it on from your forehead back. Position it where your natural hair would be and tuck in any stray strands.

How to Care for Your Wig

After you wear your wig a few times, you will need to wash and condition it. For both synthetics and genuine hair, you gently brush the wig, hand wash and condition it with appropriate products, then let it air dry on a stand. Once completely dry, gently brush it once again. With genuine hair, you can then style it.

With these tips, you should be able to find the right look, feel and fit! For further assistance, contact a local outlet, such as Ferrari Hair Service.
