How to Pick Out the Right Wig Color

How to Pick Out the Right Wig Color

When you’re choosing your wig color, you have to consider a lot.

When you’re choosing your wig color, you have to consider a lot. Color and light are usually intrinsically linked. Color is the effect of any light reflecting off of pigment. Pigment is what the natural coloring of something is. This means the actual pigment of your wig and the color you see when you look at that wig are not always the same. The same color wig could look significantly different depending on how much light is reflecting off of your wig. Just like with natural hair, wigs usually look a bit brighter and more detailed under the sun, and darker and less textured while inside or late at night. Read on to learn how to make the proper choice when picking out your wig color!

The Right Wig Color For You

Before you pick out the wig color, you need to choose the right kind for you. Do you want a synthetic wig, a heat-friendly type of synthetic wig, or a human hair wig? This choice is crucial because the same color on each kind of wig will look a tad bit different. If you’re searching for an auburn or dark red colored wig, the same auburn color will look a bit warmer on human hair wigs and much cooler on synthetic wigs. If you want a heat-friendly synthetic wig, you will need to examine the wig in person or talk to a certified expert. These kinds of wigs vary in warmth, depending on who makes them. If you have any questions regarding the type of wig as well as the wig color, come into Wigs and Hair Solutions for some expert opinions and advice!

Wig Color For Your Skin Tone

Picking a wig color for your skin tone is simple once you get the hang of it, but it can be tricky to start. You’ll want to pick colors that are no more than two shades lighter or darker than your normal hair color. To be safe, stay within your natural shade for the first few wigs. When you want to go a bit darker or lighter, change the color gradually, so you get used to it. After this, you can go on with your styling choices. The experts at Wigs and Hair Solutions can give you a hand with this part of the wig color selection process.
