Whether you’re experiencing hair loss or just want to try a new look, shopping for a wig can be a confusing and frustrating thing. The simple truth is that buying real human hair wigs requires some understanding and appreciation for details. If you’re unclear about how to select a real human hair wig that will yield a natural appearance, this guide will help you.


The first thing to decide when it comes to buying a real human hair wig is to choose the style. If you’re a newbie to wigs, you may want to stick close to a style you’re familiar with but it’s okay to want to wear a new look. Either way, deciding on the color and cut will help you start off your buying journey well.

Wig cap construction

There are different cap constructions and they have a different method of attaching hair to the cap. A lace front wig lets you part the wig away from your face so you can part the hair wherever you like. Other wig cap construction types to consider include: 100% hand tied, monofilament, basic cap, full cap etc.

Facial shape

Another factor to consider is how well a wig suits the shape of your face. Some of the different types of faces include round faces, oval face, heart shaped face, square face and more. Wearing a wig that doesn’t flatter the shape of your face can make it obvious that you’re wearing a wig rather than appear natural.

Texture and length

Long hair wigs might be attractive but they can be hard to manage for someone who is new to wigs. Wigs below 20 inches in length are generally ideal for beginners. It’s also important to take the texture into consideration as most wigs come in straight, wavy and curly texture. Only pick a texture that compliments your face and that looks natural.


Cap size

The right cap size gives maximum comfort and guarantees natural look. You can determine the right size by placing a tape measure to go round your head and then to go from your forehead to the back of your head (or the nape of your neck.)


Always put in mind that the two most important things when buying your real human hair wigs are how comfortable and how natural the wig is. Click here to buy one.
