Wig retailers are most willing to sell you a wig, but many can't or won't tell
you what the wig is actually made of. Frequently, people will purchase a wig
without really knowing what kinds of hair Fibers and caps are used, whether it
really fits their head and face shape properly and so on - if it is really best
for their particular needs. Most often a wig is sold on the basis of "
I - think - it will look good on me."
I know, from many years of experience, that this can often turn into an
"I think I made a mistake" scenario. This can be especially costly if the
company you order from has a no returns policy.
If you plan on purchasing a product from an
Internet company, you should make yourself wig savvy and know what is best for
your needs. You should be looking to be happy with your purchase the first time.
What should you be looking
Originally a wig was made of two parts, a cap and hair strands sewn, glued, or
in some other way made to stay on the cap. The cap was just that, a cap or a
form fitting hat, made of some material typically fabrics of many kinds. Wigs,
although having many advantages, originally had major disadvantages because the
"cap" was usually very hot and caused severe cases of dandruff for most wearers.
Certainly not a fashion item to wear in the middle of summer nor any other time
either! Fortunately things have changed.
Here is what you need to know before
you purchase any wig from any company.
is your most important fashion asset, and many of the companies on
our directory are ready to assist you in making a choice that is
perfectly natural for you. Looking your best is their business.- and

of fashion wigs and hairpieces.
Wearing a wig for the first time is very much like trying anything new. You just
didn't know how naturally comfortable and convenient it is until you began to
use it. Think of your wigs as being a part of you, as adaptable as your own hair
can be. Realize that your wig is not a cover-up, but a fashion accessory with a
style all your own.
Being a part of fashion, color is always directed by prevailing trends as
well as personal preferences. Custom European colors are as natural as your own
hair. Like human hair, these shades offer highlights that interact with the
basic overall color impression, creating the perfect balance as nature intended.
Whatever your natural color, you always see a slightly darker shade at the root
area of the new hair growth and lighter tones at the ends. This is exactly the
nature of our root colors, which are more like your own hair than ever before.
In selecting your perfect color, we offer these guidelines. First, if you want a
perfect match, it is always best to provide a swatch of your own hair to the
Generally, shades darker than your natural color will pale the face, and shades
significantly lighter than your natural color tend to wash out your complexion.
Remember, the goal is to achieve natural harmony between your complexion tone,
hair color and eye color.
As you age, slightly lighter shades will lift your complexion and brighten your
overall appearance. If your hair has a percentage of grey, you may wish to
reduce the grey slightly within your color while not totally elimination a hint
of grey. Don't forget...in these times, over 40 can be fabulous!
Our selection of tones, highlights and root colors gives you beautiful color
choices to match your own color, go slightly lighter or dare to wear a
dramatically different shade.
Comfort begins with a good fit. Because everyone's head has a shape unique
to that person, many wigs are detailed with Velcro tabs that can be easily
adjusted to conform to your head. After the first washing, you may find a slight
adjustment is needed.
When fitting your wig, do not try to pull it beyond your natural hairline. Many
good wigs have a hand-knotted hairline, featuring "new hair" growth that can be
lightly teased and lifted with a teasing comb for a completely natural hairline.
