I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to just put my hair under a wig cap and slap on a wig that’s already done. It’s dress up for your hair.
Whew chile, it’s 2019 and it seems like everybody and their dog own a wig. Wigs are having a significant impact on the hair industry. It seems like hairstylist and distributors are becoming an instant celebrity overnight for designing, styling, and selling flawless wigs.
In my opinion, wearing a wig is definitely the route to go. Honey, I am obsessed with wearing wigs! I can change my style and look up just by swiping out wigs, and they’re super convenient for any occasion.
As a wig consumer, I always get the how-to questions from women that don’t fully understand the different types of wigs one could wear. I always let people know that I’m not an expert by any means, but I’ll tell them what wig style works for me. Believe me, you this not a how-to guide, but more of a crash remedial course that helps you understand wig life in Laymen’s term. Think of it as a Wigs for Dummies book.
Let’s start off by talking about the different hair texture for wigs, which is human and synthetic hair. As we all know human hair can be a little costly. I think the most I spent on a human hair custom made unit is almost $400 and I do believe that was money well spent. You can do so much with a human hair wig such as dye, flat iron, cut, wash, and style it. The longevity of a human hair wig is amazing and let’s not forget the fact that it looks natural. Synthetic hair is a little different one of the noticeable difference is the cost. The cheapest synthetic wig I ever bought was around $30 from a beauty supply store. I’m not going to even lie to you that be the best feeling for me because I feel like I’m getting a deal or discount. I’m literally thrifty shopping for wigs. But the downside to buying a synthetic wig is it only last for about two months or so before you have to find the nearest trash can to put it in. I honestly love human and synthetic hair and I think they’re both worth owning.
There are so many different types of wigs on the market, which make it confusing to figure out what type works best for you. But I’m going to dissect and break this thing down for you.
Lace frontal wigs only have the lace in the front of the unit and made with a closure. The rest of the unit is a thicker cap. The cap has clips sewn in to make sure that thing is secure, honey. I have owned my fair share of human hair lace front wigs, but it’s not my go-to choice. I hate using products to “glue” it down or even making my own baby hair to make it look natural. I’m a kind of put on and go type of woman.
Full-lace wigs units are usually made with human hair and constructed on a lace cap. It’s the most versatile style because you can absolutely do anything with it. You basically have unlimited style options. But for an ordinary gal like me, this is my least favorite, because it’s so much maintenance involved in it. I have had people to tell me that they had to literally watch YouTube videos to figure out how to rock it properly. I definitely recommend you seek professional help to apply and style this type of wig.
Ready-made wigs can usually be found at your local beauty supply store. They are constructed of human or synthetic hair, and they’re probably going to be the cheapest. The best thing about them is that you can adjust them to fit your head size. The only thing that I feel like might be a negative is they come pre-styled. But if you’re looking for a low maintenance on the go wig this will be your best bet.
I do wear weaves and I do wear wigs.
