Wigs are more than just a great addition to your beauty routine: they can boost your sense of self-esteem, While the potential uses of wigs are very wide, you will find that there are some common steps you can take to make sure you buy the best wig for your lifestyle and needs.
1.Decide if you want a synthetic wig or a human hair wig
Synthetic wigs are especially great for holding volume with short hair styles. They are often referred to as “shake-n-go” wigs because you can simply shake them out as you pick them up and then put them on. Synthetic wigs are affordable. ranging from ksh2000 to ksh5000
- Wigs made of human hair tend to be more versatile in that you can style them in multiple ways (in a ponytail, bun, with curls or beachy waves). And while they generally remain in good condition longer than synthetic wigs, they also require more maintenance.
- Human hair wigs are often more expensive and can range between ksh 15,000 to ksh 40,000 (very long wigs are the priciest).
2.Look for a wig that flatters the shape of your face.
- Round faces. These generally look best with short, spiky pixie wigs, hair that graces the collarbone, or with longer layers that hit at the jawline (but not above it)
- Heart-shaped faces. Consider a short pixie cut that can be tousled and has some texture (like Halle Berry), a shoulder length wig with side-swept bangs, or long layers with a fringe of bangs.
- Oval face shapes. For shorter hair, look for a shaggy bob. For long hair, look for a wig that holds layered curls or waves. Pick a wig that can hold lots of volume as this will make your face appear fuller.
- Square faces. For square faces, picks wigs that will soften your jawline, such as a longer, angled bob, a shoulder length style with soft layers, or a wig with an off-center part.
3.Consider your lifestyle. What kind of needs do you have for your haircare routine? Will you want a wig that you can put on with minimal styling and care or do you want something that can be elaborately styled?
4.Select a wig that compliments your skin tone. You should have a general idea of which color you want before you go to buy your wig. You might be tempted to try something very different once you are in the store, but it’s best to stick with colors that you know will work for you. Skin tone types generally fall into three categories: warm, cool and neutral.
