Are you purchasing a new wig? Discover which style suits your face shape best!

Every woman deserves to feel beautiful in her wig, and that requires selecting a style that compliments her particular face shape. Purchasing a wig online can complicate the process, which is why it’s best to schedule a consultation with a local wig and hair replacement specialist. Call Wigs and Hair Solutions today, and read on to discover how you can pinpoint your face shape before your appointment.

Identifying Your Face Shape

There are seven basic face shapes, and identifying yours can help to simplify the process of choosing a wig. If you don’t know your face shape, take the following steps to narrow it down.

First, acquire a washable marker and stand in front of a mirror. Use the marker to trace the outline of your face onto the mirror. If you don’t have access to either of these items, consider tracing a recent photograph onto a sheer piece of paper.

Once you have an outline, compare it to the seven basic face shapes: oval, round, square, diamond, heart, pear, and oblong. In this blog, we’ll highlight styles for the three most common face shapes, oval, round, and square.

Selecting the Best Wig for You

If you have an oval-shaped face, consider choosing a wig that sits away from your face and accentuates its shape. Oval faces compliment almost every wig style, but you can limit the choices to your stylistic preferences.

For square-shaped faces, select a wig that adds height to the top. This elongates your symmetrical shape, narrows the sides, and creates the illusion of length. Women with square faces tend to opt for layered and wavy styles to accentuate their best features.

Women with round-shaped faces tend to feel most beautiful and confident in full wigs with curl and depth. Selecting a wig with a side-part helps to highlight the cheekbones and draw attention to the eyes.
