Your First Wig

Time to try something new? Many people start wearing a wig for fashion, fun, convenience, or even medical reasons. No matter what your reason, buying your first wig can be confusing. It is important to consider the wig construction, materials, style, and fit before making a purchase.

For help buying the perfect first wig, we highly recommend consulting an expert wig stylist, like the consultants at Rosalind Stella’s in Philadelphia.

Types of Construction 

Closure Wigs

Full circumference closure wigs are one of the most beginner-friendly styles of wigs. These wigs cover your entire head with a piece, or closure, at the front that mimics a natural hair part. Closure wigs are ideal for first-time buyers because they are easy to use, easy to care for, and they can be worn daily.

Lace Wigs

You may have heard of lace wigs as a natural and versatile style of wig construction. While this is true, lace wigs are more expensive and tend to require more experience to style and care for. If you are set on a lace wig, try a lace frontal wig, with the lace only at the closure.

Closure Size

For beginners, it is ideal to start with a wig that has a small closure size that still allows you to create styles that you are confident with. A 4×4 closure size is common among beginners since you can easily style it in a middle or side part.

Synthetic vs. Natural

Synthetic wigs are commonly recommended for the first time you buy. They are also less expensive for those who are not ready to make a big investment. Wig technology and construction have come a long way in recent years, and synthetic wigs now look extremely natural. Synthetic wigs also come pre-styled so they will always look nice and you won’t damage them with styling tools and products.

Fit and Style

You want it to fit well and be comfortable and you want to feel beautiful and confident wearing it. Wigs come in every style, color, and texture imaginable. Choose a wig that highlights your personality or is versatile for everyday wear. For help choosing a style that complements your look and for ensuring a good fit, consult with a stylist at a wig boutique.
