requirements is an important first step. Are you a carefree person who wants to

synthetic wigs, since they are easier to maintain and are less priced then human
hair wigs. Synthetic wigs offers the ability of carefree styles that when wet will
always retain back to their original set once dried. Synthetics must be treated
properly with specified products, made to enhance the quality and longevity of the
hairpiece. Heat Synthetic Wigs allow you to use your styling tools up to 180c.

own real hair, or can replace the hair you haven’t got. The hairline constructed

Human and synthetic wigs come in various cap designs. They fall into the following
categories - mono base, non-mono base and lace. But what does it all mean? Understanding
cap constructions will make your selection easy.

mono bases- synthetic or human hair 

Made in such a way that gives the most natural looking scalp appearance by allowing
the natural scalp colour of the wearer to show through. Monofilament caps are typically
made of thin mesh-like material, usually of nylon or polyester. Due to hairs usually
being attached by hand tying at the crown, these caps usually give the most natural
look. Wigs are thus easier to style and more versatile due to the attachment method.
Much like real hair, the wig can be parted or brushed in any direction. These soft
cap wigs are good for easily irritable scalps. Due to the natural look of the wig,
it is also highly recommended for severe and total hair loss individuals.

capless base

The most common of all wig cap types and is usually not visible through the hair.
The cap usually has a closed lace layer around the crown at which the hairs are
sewn onto by machine. Hair is usually styled in such a way that the crown is lifted
so the cap is not visible. This cap gives the hair volume at the crown due to the
natural lift. It can look like a teased effect at the crown area.

lace front wigs - human or synthetic 

The invisible lace front creates a low density, natural looking hairline and allows
for off the face styling. It does not require any tape, adhesive, or cutting. Wig
manufacturers developed lace front wigs so customers could wear their hair off the
face. It is the only cap construction that permits a natural looking hairline.


After you have picked the type of hair and construction, we are almost ready to
start chosing your style. The shape of your face will greatly influence your style
choice. Hair stylists all across the world use face shapes as a guide when it comes
to styling hair. Learn how to emphasize your best features with this quick guide.

Oval Face

Versatile. This face shape is considered the "perfect" shape because of its symmetry.
Very little, if any contouring is needed as it's well balanced (slightly broader
at cheeks, and narrower at forehead and chin, and overall is longer than wide).
Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is so proportional, this
face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.


Add length, avoid width.The round-shaped face has a wide hairline and fullness below
the cheekbones. The goal is to slim your face. It's best to avoid short and sleeked-
back hairstyles. Wear longer styles closer to the face to give length. People with
round faces tend to look more youthful. By layering the top to achieve fullness
and keeping the rest of the cut relatively close to the face, your face shape will
appear longer and narrower.


educe width at sides.Your face shape is balanced and dramatic. Widest at the cheekbones
and narrow equally at the forehead and jaw line. Shorter styles work best especially
Bobs, however avoid height on top or volume on the sides and use some fringe or
bangs to cover narrow forehead. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic
cheekbones and more delicate chin line.


Add volume at chin. This is a triangular-shaped face. This face is narrow at the
jaw line, wider at the eye line, cheek bones and even more at the brow line. Bring
some hair onto the forehead (fringe) to disguise its width and enhance the fullness
at the jaw line. A medium length to mid-neck is your best look, the soft layered
bob styles are also ideal. Or if you prefer, curls or loose waves, shaped from the
ears down, add width and fullness to your chin. Just remember if you have a dramatic
heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize!


Add volume above jaw line. This face shape, while oval-ish has a narrower forehead
as a rather larger appearing jaw line, making it look a little angular. The goal
is to narrow the chin and widen the forehead. Fringes and long layered styles are
ideal. Also the wedge styles, which are brushed away from the face and give width
at the forehead, are perfect for this facial shape.


Add softness. The oblong-shaped face has a long and narrow bone structure. Hairstyles
should add width and fullness to the sides of the face and around the eyes, cheekbones
and ears. You'll want to balance the look of a long and slender face. Wide curly
bob styles are ideal for this shape. Also use a fringe and soft wispy bangs as it
will shorten the appearance of the length.


There are many products on the market today that enable you to wear your wigs with
confidence and security. Just remember most wigs have adjustable tabs to either
lengthen or tighten wig caps to ensure a secure fit. For added security, you can use the Sure Grip product which is worn under your wig keeping your wig firmly
into place. Wig tapes and adhesives also aid for a tighter fit offering different
bonding agents varying from daily wear to several weeks. Please check the wig accessories section for the numerous products available to assist you
with a perfect fit. Wear your wig with confidence!  * use as guide only as various brands may have slightly different base size measurements.
