4 Helpful Tips For Buying a Wig


Take back control of your life!

If you’ve finally made the decision to purchase your first wig, then the process can be new and exciting for you. Your journey with hair loss hasn’t been easy, but purchasing a wig is the first step to taking control of your life again. The process can be overwhelming for a first-time wig buyer, so before you set out to purchase your first wig – take a few moments to plan.

Do your Wig Research

Learn about the wig terms, what they mean, and how they can apply to you. Read up on the differences between synthetic wigs and human hair wigs. Learning the various wig features can help you determine how each wig can be beneficial to your specific type of hair loss.

Have a Wig Fitting

At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we offer custom-fitted wigs. This includes a private confidential consultation, human and synthetic hair designed for specific hair loss, a custom-cut, shape and even style. Before you walk into a salon and choose a wig, a consultation is the perfect way for you to determine what will look best on you and not just the mannequin.

Talk to Your Friends

Big decisions are best made with a friend by your side. Your friends know you best. They know your personal style and your preferences. If you’re worried about how your first wig consultation will go, don’t go alone. Rely on a friend. The consult can give you advice regarding which wig is best for you, and your friend can be there to give you the big thumbs up when you try it on!

Consider the Additions to Wigs

Ensure that you have all of the necessities that come with proper wig care. Do you have a wig stand, or are you planning to purchase one with your wig? Have you thought about wraps and other stylish head wear? These items will come in handy when your wig is being cleaned or styled. Keep in mind that wigs can take up to 24 hours to fully dry after washing, so an additional wig or wrap would be a good thing to consider.
