Women's Wig

Human hair wig is a popular cosmetic item from the times of the ancient Egyptians who used it to protect their head from the sun to the 16th-century men who used it as a means to hide their bald head.

Hair wigs are widely used nowadays to make up for the bad hair day.

Gone are the days when you constantly had to struggle to keep your hair looking decent. Curling, straightening, drying, styling, and cutting your hair is not only a time-consuming task, but it also damages your hair texture and quality.

Instead of spending hours trying to style hair, people now resort to human hair wigs for a much finesse look. Hair wigs come in different styles, shades, and quality, which means you can choose whatever best suits your face and skin color and take your style game to the next level.

TYPES OF WIGS

Human hair wigs and synthetic fiber wigs can are both available pre-styled or can be custom made according to your requirements. The following are the basic wigs you can choose from to style yourself on a day to day basis.

LACE FRONT WIGS

MONOFILAMENT WIGS

These are the most real looking wigs because of the absolute flesh-toned top, you can see the skin through the wig. Monofilament wigs are available in human and synthetic hair.

MACHINE WEFT WIGS

These are less expensive than the first two but are heavier than them. However, it really doesn’t matter as long as you style it well, these machine weft wigs are just as stylish as the other two.

HAND-TIED WIGS

Hand-tied wigs are extremely lightweight and flexible. They are not very pricey, but if they have a monofilament top, the price may increase.

HOW TO FIT A WIG

Almost all wigs have variable elastics that help to adjust the circumference of the wigs according to the size of the head.

There are also snap lock combs that lock in your hair and secure the wig. Also, some wigs have a suction hold that does not require the wearer to have any hair but keeps the wig intact.

There are double-sided tape wigs that you can stick to your scalp or the wig itself for better and more secure attachment.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO OWN A WIG?
