Many people mistakenly think all wig styles look great on anyone. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong hair pieces can create questionable results. Your face shape plays a significant role in selecting the right option for looking your best.
The oval face shape is the most common among women and offers proportional features. Because the entire head is proportional, this shape looks good with just about any type of wig. If this describes you, it won’t matter which style you choose.
A round face is proportional as well, but because the face is just as wide as it is tall, certain hairstyles don’t offer the look you want. For this face shape, it is often better to choose hair pieces that offer additional height on the top without adding width to the sides of the face. Short layers and wispy bangs are great choices.
The heart shaped face is wider at the top, typically near the eyes, forehead and eyebrows, and tapers down to the chin. Women with this face shape can benefit from hair pieces that stay closer to the head at the top and fluff out at the bottom. The layered look helps widen the face at the bottom.
This face shape is the opposite of the heart shape, with wider features at the bottom and narrower features at the top. Choosing a wig with fuller layers at the top, potentially in a shorter cut, will create the right look for your face shape. It is often best to avoid using bangs.
An oblong face is similar to an oval, but instead of tapering at the top and bottom, the width remains the same. For these women, choosing wigs with curls or waves to add volume to the sides can create the illusion of the desired oval face. Bangs can also help soften features. Bob and wedge cuts often work best.
Women who identify as a diamond face shape have wide cheekbones with narrower forehead and chin. For these women, it can be difficult to choose the right wig to avoid adding too much volume to the sides. Bob hairstyles are often preferred for this face shape, while shoulder-length hair can also work well.
The square face shape features an even width throughout the face, as well as an equal height. As you choose hair pieces, look for wigs that add height to the top and not a lot of volume to the sides. The best type of wigs include mid-length, curly hair.
Choosing the right hair pieces can help complement your face shape. When you don’t pay attention to the relationship between the shape of your face and yourwigs, you may not create the flattering look you want. These tips can help you make better style choices.
