Wigs

Postby Jodie » January 30th, 2017, 12:42 pm

Hi all am about to place an order for my first wig, any tips on how much and what brands to go for. I want something nice and realistic mid length. Thanks.

hi Jodie I have 2 wigs both purchased from the breastform store I have a short burgundy and I have a shoulder length burnette ..both henry margu...I like the brunette it puts a fair bit of hair around my face which softens my male look...and I have another from celebrity wigs the carol mono burgundy in colour but don't really wear that anymore...my next wig will probably be a human hair wig which I will get professionally cut and fitted,big bucks but worth it

Synthetics are fine for your first wig and it will help you decide what sort of style and colour suits without blowing a mountain of money.

Generally brunette with a hint of either burgundy or lighter blond is a good starter option. It will be easy to blend etc. Avoid strong colours e.g. blonds / blacks / bright reds as they are MUCH harder to pull off and generally just scream "I've got a wig on". Don't got long, just below shoulder length will give you enough to work with, you don't want 2-2.5 foot of hair flapping around in the wind. A soft curl is also probably the best for blending, most women have a soft curl in their hair unless they straighten it and they will only do that if they are going out on a date / to an event. Similarly don't do a tight curl, VERY 80's and screams "wig" from 200m away.

NB: Christine / Dana, I've got an old Brunette synthetic shoulder length wig that haven't used for over 2 years now. It was reasonable quality when I bought it (around $200 I think) so would be fine for someone as a starter. Do you have an address I can post it too and you ladies can rehome it as you see fit?

Thanks for the replies I have found a wig called a ken pave Jessica simpson bob wig. They only have Mocha colour left and its on special. I'm thinking that might be an ok colour and length though?

Yeah, it's worthwhile blowing $50 on it. Even if you end up not using it that much then you can wear it to a dress up them night or something. I bought a fringe hair piece a little while ago then changed my hair colour and I've never worn it so that was a waste of $30 but hey, thee things happen.
