How to Choose the Perfect Wig for You

Whether you are choosing a wig for a big night out, to trial a daring haircut or for medical reasons, a well-fitting wig is a must-have. The perfect wig has to be comfortable, stylish and should fit perfectly on your head. Here are a few pointers to help you choose the best one for you.

Why Choose a Wig

Some people may lose their hair due to stress related factors, or from illnesses and conditions. Those who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation can experience hair loss. A wig can help them achieve a sense of normality during this upsetting time. Hair pieces can also be used to style up outfits and for special occasions too.


Whether you are looking for a wig for a special night out or to add to your everyday look, the key to choosing the perfect wig is to make sure it is comfortable. For people with total hair loss, a wig cap will protect your scalp from irritation. It can also help to keep it secure too. The friction between the cap and the wig will keep the wig in place until you are ready to take it off. Unfortunately, the quality of wig caps can differ vastly due to cheap materials and poor designs. The Julia Lampard Wig Lingerie has been specially designed for security, comfort and style. They are available in two colors and are made with soft, woven cotton to enhance breathability and absorb perspiration.


When purchasing a wig from a salon, you can simply schedule in a consultation and let the professionals do the sizing. If you have found a wig that you like online then make sure it is the right fit to avoid disappointment. In general, wigs can range from 19 inches to 23 inches. Using a soft measuring tape, measure your head circumference from the front of your hairline (where the wig will sit), behind one ear, to the nape of the neck, and back round to the front. Some wigs are designed with straps which you can adjust for a better fit.

Everyday Use

People who want to use their hair piece everyday should visit a hair salon that specialises in wigs. These salons hire specially trained wig consultants who can guide you through the whole process. They will help you find the best wig to suit your shape, make sure it fits correctly and they can even cut the wig and style it to your liking. Personalised wigs from a salon can be costly. However, it is a small price to pay to look and feel good everyday.

Occasional Wear

If your wig is to be used for a special occasion, such as a theme party, then you can choose an off-the-shelf hair piece. 

The same goes for people who want to test the waters, in terms of a new hairstyle, before diving straight in. Once you have chosen a wig, you can either try to cut it yourself, or you can take it to a hair salon for a professional cut. You may find that you are satisfied enough with a temporary piece and stick with your original hairstyle after all.
