If you are nervous about wearing a wig for the first time then it is advisable to choose a wig close to your current hairstyle. What is going to look the most natural on you, is a style that looks like YOU! A familiar style will help you feel more confident and make the transition from wearing your own hair to wearing wigs a good experience. Experiment with subtle style variations, but stay within your comfort zone. If you are just about to start chemotherapy it may be advisable to visit a wig salon such as Simone Thomas hair loss clinic and hairdressers in Bournemouth and Wokingham before you lose your hair so your stylist can see your current hair colour and style. At the end of the day everyone is different and the most important factor is what feels most comfortable for you!
Blend In Your Own Hair
If your natural hair colour is close to your wig colour try blending in your own hair along the hairline for a more natural look. Apply the wig then pull out small sections of your own hair along the sides and front using your fingers or a comb.
Even if your own hair is just a few inches long, this will really help to make your wig look and feel more natural and create a seamless hairline.
Know Your Measurements
There is nothing worse than an ill fitting wig. You don’t want your wig riding up, slipping off or to look misshapen by excess bulk at the crown. This is why choosing the right size is just as important as finding the right color and style. Look for the measurements of the wig when purchasing online and measure your head at home. The majority of wigs have adjustable straps inside to allow you to tighten the wig once on your head. If you would like to find a wig in Bournemouth, London or Basingstoke, Simone Thomas hair loss clinic hold a wide variety of human hair wigs and synthetic wigs by different suppliers so you should have no trouble finding the best wig for you!
