Feminine Wigs

There are a wide variety of wig options available for those who have preference for wigs that have historically been seen as more “feminine”.

1. Full Cap Wigs: Full cap wigs are the most popular type of wigs for women. They cover the entire head and can be made from a variety of materials, including human hair, synthetic hair or fiber.

2. Partial Wigs: Partial wigs are worn on the top of your head and cover only part of your scalp. Partial wigs can also be made from human hair, synthetic hair or fiber.

3. Custom Wigs: Custom wigs are made to order and can be specifically tailored to fit your needs. They can be made from human hair, synthetic hair or fiber.

4. Hair Extensions: Hair extensions are pieces of real or synthetic hair that are added to your own natural hair to add length or volume. Hair extensions can be used with any type of wig.

5. Braids: Braids are strands of artificial or real hair that are braided into your own natural hair to add texture and volume. Braids can be used with any type of wig as well.

Mens wigs are very similar to women's wigs. Attention to detail at the sides and front hair line are particularly crucial for men's wigs.

Masculine Wigs

Wigs with masculine characteristics are available as well, including full cap wigs, partial wigs, custom-made wigs and toupees/hairpieces.

1. Full Cap Wigs For Men: Full cap wigs for men are similar to full cap wigs for women, but they are typically larger in size and are made from materials that are more durable and withstand weather conditions better than feminine wigs.

2. Custom-Made Wigs For Men: Custom-made wigs for men can be specifically tailored to fit your needs and can be made from human hair, synthetic hair or fiber.

3. Toupees/Hairpieces For Men: Toupees/hairpieces for men are small pieces of real or synthetic hair that are attached to the balding areas of your scalp to conceal thinning hair or baldness.

4. Hair Extensions For Men: Anyone can rock hair extensions. It’s not uncommon for men to use hair extensions to add length or volume to their own natural hair.

Kids wigs have to be small, practical, comfortable, and youthful.

Wigs For Children

Contrary to popular belief, children can also wear wigs, although there are some key differences between wigs for children and those for adults. Wigs for kids tend to be smaller in size and are often made from soft and gentle materials on the scalp, such as lace or cotton.

If you are looking for a wig for a child, it is essential to consider the style and color of the wig as well. Most importantly, you will want to make sure that the wig fits comfortably and does not cause any irritation or discomfort.

When choosing a wig for your child, it is important to consider their age, personality, and the occasion for which the wig will be worn. If you are looking for a wig to wear on special occasions such as Halloween or a themed party, then it is important to choose one that matches the character or style you are trying to portray.

Choosing the right wig for your needs is tricky. Luckily, that's why we're here to help!

How To Choose The Right Wig

When choosing a wig, the first thing to consider is what type of occasion it will be worn for. If you are looking for a wig to wear every day, you will want something comfortable and natural-looking.

However, if you are looking for a wig to wear for a special event, you may want to choose one with more of a dramatic style.

Another thing to consider when choosing a wig is the color and tone of your skin. Wigs come in many different colors, so it is important to find one that matches your skin tone well. If you have blonde hair, for example, then you may want to choose a wig with light brown or golden highlights to match your natural hair color.

When choosing a wig for women, it is also important to consider the size of your head. Most wigs come in standard sizes, but some wigs are made specifically for petite or large heads. It is important to find the correct size wig so that it looks natural and does not slip off when you are wearing it.

Wigs for men can vary in terms of style and color, just like wigs for women, but they are typically designed to be shorter in length and have a more masculine style. Wigs for children can also vary in terms of style and color, but they are typically much smaller in size than wigs for adults.

If you are looking for a wig to wear every day, then it is important to find one that is comfortable and fits well. You should try on different wigs to see which one feels the best on your head.

If you are looking for a wig to wear for a special event, then you may want to consider hiring a professional stylist to help choose the right wig for you.
