Tips on Choosing the Right Wig Based on Your Face Shape

Wigs are great and affordable ways  to enhance your physical appearance and hide baldness. Choosing the right wig is not easy, but with the right tips and guidance you should be able to select the perfect wig for you. One of the main things you must keep in mind when choosing a wig is the shape of your face, the same rule that applies to whatever hairstyle you choose. You may look at a celebrity and love the hairstyle they are use, however it doesn’t necessarily mean it will suit you the same way. In order to determine the right wig and hairstyle, the first step is looking at yourself in the mirror. Take a look at our tips below that will help you choose a wig based on the six basic face shapes.


Oval Face


Oval faces are about half as wide as they are long. Oval face shapes offer a lot of options. They are usually referred as having “equal proportions” and are suitable for a variety of styles. If you are lucky enough to have an oval face you can choose from any wig style or haircut, from long hair to short, cute styles.


Round Face


Like the name suggests, round faces are very symmetrical and usually have a soft curve that defines your face shape. The best styles that suit round faces are long layers and side sweeping bangs. You can always rock a short hairstyle or wig, but we advice you keep it choppy. Asymmetrical angles and hairstyles are a great idea for round faces and they counter the soft round shape and usually look great.


Diamond-Shaped


Usually defined by wide, high cheekbones and narrow, pointy chins. Diamond-shaped faces look great with both long and short hair. You always want to aim for bobs and bangs, but you want to stay away from large volumes on the top. Middle parts are a no go. Try to select a style that cut straight across your forehead and you will find the style suits amazingly well.


Oblong


Oblong shapes are those longer than oval shapes with a slightly pointed chin. A very lovely face shape that usually goes well with bangs. Having your hair flick or curl at the bottom is a great idea as well, and alike oval faces, you can try several styles to see which one suits you best.


Square Shaped


Prominent jaw lines define square-shaped faces as they’re usually as wide as your forehead. Hairstyles and wigs that create a frame around your face usually work best. Also try to select a style that adds height to compliment that great jaw line.


Heart shaped


Also known as inverted triangles, they are defined as having narrow jaws with a pointy chin while cheekbones and foreheads are the same width. Perfect face shape for a long bob and piece bangs. Also great with short layered cuts.
