Finding a Wig for your Face Shape

Hey everyone! So, how many people struggle with finding that perfect wig, spending way too much money and time trying to figure out whether you should wear short, long, straight or curly?  Experiment no more! Today I am going to help you figure out what wig you should be wearing according to the shape of you face.

There is a method to this madness… First we need to figure out what shape your face is. Grab a mirror and trace the outline of your face with soap or your weapon of choice, and see what shape you make. Now look at the chart and choose the shape that is closest to the outline you made on your face.                                         

Now that you know your face shape, let’s get started with finding you that perfect wig! (Keep in mind the models/mannequins that are shown all have oval faces so try and focus on the wig that is shown, and not the face shape).
If you have an oval face consider yourself lucky! Oval faces can usually pull off any type of wig, being that is an ideally proportioned face shape. So, you can really wear short, long, curly, bangs, or straight, but since you have such a beautiful shaped face I suggest a style that will show that off, rather than hide it. Our Tiffany Wig, shown on the left, flows nicely around the face, showing off your oval shape. Avoid heavy bangs because this will make your face appear heavier.
If you have a round face then you probably have a rounded hairline and chin. Ideally you want a wig that elongates your face. Short hairstyles tend to make the face look rounder so go for a  medium to long length wig. Try a style that is parted to the side to off set the roundness of your face. Choose a wig that has layers like our Skye Wig that start after your chin to narrow the face. Avoid rounded  styles that end at your chin, because this will make your face look rounder where you don't want it to be. 
If your face is square that means you have a square hairline and jawline, so your goal is to elongate your face. Try a wig that is short to medium in length. You want to add some height to the top of your head, so a wig that has a little body to it along with some wispy bangs will allow your face to appear more narrow. The Jessica Wig is a great example of an ideal hair style for a square face. Avoid styles that are long and straight.
Heart  and diamond shaped faces are fairly similar and both need a fairly full hairstyle. Heart shaped faces generally have a widows peak, along with high cheek bones and a wider forehead. Look for a wig that is chin length- a bob works great. Ideally you want your forehead to appear less wide so choose a wig where the hair comes diagonally across your forehead. The Sparkle Wig is gorgeous and is very flattering on heart & diamond shaped faces.

Now that you know your face shape and  know what style of wig fits you most you can get onto the fun part… COLOR! Choose a color that will go well with your skin tone. As always, don’t hesitate if you have questions…
