Choosing the right color wig from the hundreds of colors available can become tricky, but we will walk you through the process and tell you what to look out for!
There are two determining factors here, do you want to choose a wig that is naturally closer to the color of your own hair, or do you want to have a dramatic change?
How to select a hair color that matches your style
If you are looking for a wig that will enhance your natural looks and beauty as well as match your personal style follow these perfect tips:
Skin-tone – We are all unique and have a different undertone to our skins. Some people may have a reddish or orange undertone while others have a purple or greener hue to their skin tone.
Determining your skin tone is easy, look at the underside of your wrist, this is the part of your body that has not been colored by the sun, so it shows your natural skin color.
If your veins are blueish or purple then you have a cool undertone. If the skin on your wrist is greener then it means you have a warmer undertone. If you see a combination of both colors then your undertone is neutral.
Should your skin look orange or red, then your skin will match warm-toned hair color.
Remember any wig color will not suit your natural skin tone, so this is an important first step in the process.
This is going to sound crazy, but when you choose a wig your choice needs to be opposite to the undertone of your skin. If your skin tone is neutral you are truly lucky and can choose from either the warm-toned colors or the cool ones.
For example, if you have a cool undertone, that means blueish or purple, then the wig you chose must come from the warmer colors. That is a golden-brown color, a brassy red or brassy blonde, and also a brassier undertone in the brown wig color.
Cool colors that will suit a warn skin tone are ash blonde, light brown, and deep reds.
Your natural hair color – Consider for a moment what the natural color of your hair is. If the look you want to achieve is similar to your natural hair color when choosing a wig of the same color is the best option for you.
For first-time wig buyers, we recommend staying closest to your natural hair color and then gradually going darker or lighter over time. Rather take it slowly, you don’t want to make a dramatic change and then hate it, remember a good wig is an investment.
Your eye color – Choose a hair color that matches your eyes. Just like when choosing the opposite color wig to your skin tone, when you choose a wig it must be in the opposite color tone of your eyes.
Green-blue, greenish yellow, golden brown, or turquoise eyes are seen as warm-toned, so when choosing a wig, you need to choose a cool color for the hair. Cool-colored eyes such as deep brown, black-brown, ice blue, or gray require a warm-toned wig.
Imagine the stunning look when wearing a wig that contrasts the color of your eyes!
The age factor – The color of your wig must be relevant to the age you are as some colors suit a certain age better than others would. Light, warm hair colors are ideal for professional career women or women that are older, while bold colored wigs suit young women best.
The trend in the past couple of years has been gray hair, but if you are older, gray is not always the best choice as it can make you look older than you actually are. On the other hand, gray suits younger women and in fact, make them look even younger!
Choose a color that stays – When you decide on a color for your wig ensure you select a hair color that doesn’t fade easily. Whether you spend your days in the sun or in an office, when it comes to selecting a wig color you need to remember that a wig is an investment.
Hair can be damaged by the sun and using a sun protection spritz and a good conditioner is important, but that won’t stop the color from fading if you haven’t made the right choice from the start. These are our recommended steps to ensure your color never fades!
- Only buy from a reputable manufacturer, brand, or vendor. Buying from a reputable company will mean you are buying a high-quality wig.
- High-quality wigs last longer, at times, if you take the correct care of your wig it will last over a year and sometimes close to two years.
- A company with a good reputation offers customer care and after-sales service, an important factor to consider when making an investment in the perfect wig.
The bottom line is there are so many beautiful natural colors that can enhance your natural beauty, so when you decide you want luscious lustrous beautiful hair and select a wig, take the time to make the right selection. This is your time to shine, buy a wig that shines too!
