How To Choose A Wig To Compliment Your Face Shape

Hair styles are something that are ever changing and even those looking for a wig still must consider what looks good with their shape face. Granted, it is important to choose a wig based on personality and style, but also how it makes a person look and feel. One can never go wrong with choosing a wig style based on their shape of face. There are particular face types that are flattered with certain hair styles and this information is important to get the most out of a wig. Read on for information about the types of face shapes and the best wig styles!

In order to determine the shape of your face pull your hair back and trace the outline in the mirror with a bar of soap. You might not have to do this test if you already know the shape face that you have. Compare the tracing to the information below to determine which shape you have:

A triangle Shape is one that is narrow through the forehead and wide at the chin. On the triangle shape face a layered look or curly with heavy fringe builds fullness around the face. The hair kept at shoulder length or shorter will also compliment the triangle shape face.

A square shape face is one in which the jaw line and forehead are the same. Short hair styles with wave or curl on the top compliment this shape face. Wispy bangs and edges also soften the wider forehead as well as jaw line complimenting nicely.

Oval Shape faces are those that can wear just about any wig style. They can wear short, long, curly or straight. One might try longer hair with soft layers around the face. It has often been said that oval shapes are the luckiest of all because they can easily wear a variety of different wig styles.

Heart shaped face are those with a wide forehead, high cheek bones, but a narrow v-shaped chin. Short cropped wedges with tapered to the neck are very compatible with this shape of face. Also long wispy fringe softens the round and full check bones.

Individuals should also take into consideration their personality and style. It is important to compliment the shape of face, but the individual must also be happy with the style of wig that they chose. There are also many other styles that look good with different shape faces, trying them out can help find the best fit for your face, personality and style.
