How to Choose the Perfect Hairpiece

Jul 24, 2008
In our world today, baldness is no longer a pressings issue. Men and women either come to terms with it or they can choose to remedy it. There are several ways of fighting baldness. It can include surgery and medication. But, the easiest way to fight is by using a hairpiece. There are so many hairpieces and wigs to choose from. But, how can you pick out the best one?

Go Human

When buying hairpieces, it is advised that you buy ones that have been made with real human hair. Human hair is easier to maintain and looks more realistic. Synthetic wigs don't last as long as human hair does and animal hair may sometimes be too coarse or too fine to pass as your own hair. Most high-end, well stocked wig stores often carry their own line of authentic human hair wigs. The only problem with human hair is that it can sometimes be too expensive. If you cannot afford real human hair, go for a high quality synthetic piece until you can afford the real deal.

Get a Close Match

Getting a close match is very important when choosing wigs. Keep in mind that when buying a wig, you not only have to match the color, but the texture as well. If you have fine hair, then it is only logical that you get a wig made of fine hair. The same goes for coarse, curly and wavy hair. If you have really curly hair, you may find matching it difficult. But, just remain patient and you will soon find a hair piece perfect for you. Color and shading is also important when buying a wig. Match the original color of you hair as closely as possible. If the piece you bought is not the right color match, you can always get it dyed by a professional colorist.

Do it early!

It may be beneficial for you if you pick out a hairpiece early. How so? Well, the sooner you get one, the lesser people will suspect that it isn't your real hair. Start by getting a small hairpiece or hair extensions that attach itself to your existing hair. That way you will be able to get away with bigger pieces as your bald spot get bigger.

The Best Places to Get Wigs

As a general rule, it is advised that you buy your hairpieces or wigs personally. If you can afford customized items, then that would be better. Take your time in trying out items making sure that they look as real as possible. However, if the only place you can get a hairpiece is from the internet, it would be best if you go to a reliable online store. Ask as many questions as you possibly can and look for a store that has a clear return policy. Steer clear of online stores that don't offer refunds or exchanges. That way, if your purchase doesn't match your actual hair, you can have it replaced for one that does.

Keeping the Wig On

There are several ways of keeping you wig attached to you hair. Most hairpieces come with adhesive backing that allows it to stick to your scalp. All you have to do is to keep you scalp clean so that the adhesive sticks. Another way that a wig is attached is through clips. The wig is kept on by clipping it to your existing hair.
