How To Choose The Right Wig
The motivation for wearing wigs and fixing weaves has gone beyond using them to conceal medical hair loss, thinning or undone hair. With the improvement in the hair industry, these hair pieces, either made with human hair or synthetic fibre, have become more of a fashion statement and less of a hair fix.
9jaecho brings to you several wig sizes, colours and styles but the right ones for you are those that compliment your face, fit your head properly, suit your skin tone and your life style.
If your face has wider cheekbones with a narrow chin and forehead (diamond face shape), a wig styled with fullness or width in the forehead hairline and the lower cheekbones of the face near the chin will compliment your look. Hair should be styled close to the head at the upper cheekbones where the face is broadest. Bands or a layered fringe, a bob or a shoulder length cut with layering or wig styles that tuck in behind the ears will work well.
For the heart shaped face, a face that has a large and wider forehead, high cheek bones, with sometimes a widow’s peak hairline, and a narrow v-shaped chin, look for a wig that allows you to bring some hair across it. Keep the hairstyle closer to the head near the eyes and fuller around the jaw, as well as below and in front of the earlobes where additional width is desired. A chin length bob and longer, layered hairstyles also look great on you.
If you have an o blong shaped face, that is an elongated rectangular shape with a long straight cheekline, choose wig style that would help minimize the vertical length of your face. Look for wig styles that are short to medium in length with longer top layers such as wedges and graduated bob cuts. Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under or flutter out also work very well to add width. Straight across bangs, feathered bangs, or half bangs with side parts soften the forehead. Layered styles in medium and longer lengths with wavy and curly textures will flatter the face and neck while obscuring the straight long lines of an oblong face.
