Step 1: Sizing
It’s easy to become overloaded with information when you first decide to try a wig. There are so many different varieties, styles, cuts and colors, where do you begin? One of the keys to a comfortable, natural looking wig is proper sizing. If a wig is too tight it can cause pinching and be uncomfortable to wear, or if it is too loose it can shift while you are wearing and look unnatural.
Our stylists will determine the size of your head by measuring around the forehead, across the nape of your neck and around to the other side. By this means of measurement, most women are determined to have a head size of 21.5” to 22.5”. Children will measure at about 18” to 19.5”, and men at 22.5” to 24”. Wigs that are sized properly will feel better, not slip as much and look much more natural.
Step 2: Skin Color and Face Shape
Skin coloring and face shape are the next elements to consider in your wig purchase. If you are going for a natural look, the color of the wig hair would be only a few shades lighter to a few shades darker than your skin tone. Of course if you are looking for something different or to standout, the color options are endless!
Face shape is another critical factor to selecting wigs. Typically you will want to try to balance out the shape of your face with your hair style. For instance, if you have an oblong or oval face, a short hairstyle balances it out. On the other hand, a short, round face looks balanced with a longer style. Those are just general examples, only a professional fitting can truly show you what looks best on you. At Wig-A-Do, your professional stylist and private fitting will allow you to try different styles and lengths so that you can feel great when you leave with your custom fitted wig or hairpiece.
