Finding the Right Wig Color

While wigs are great for experimentation and changing up your look, one of the most crucial issues that come up when choosing the right wig for yourself is to not being able to find the right wig color. Today, wigs come in all kinds of shades and styles, ranging from those made with synthetic fibers to ones made with human hair. Wigs are a great option if you want to experiment with different looks. Chemotherapy patients and people who have suffered hair loss post-partum, or due to medications, environmental and genetic factors, also opt for wigs to cover their head and protect their scalp while they wait for their hair to grow back.

There are five basic factors that you should take into account when choosing the right wig. Specifically, the kind of hairstyle, the length of hair, the texture, the size of the cap, and the color of the hair. Let’s take a look at how you should choose the right wig color.

Look for two shades darker or lighter

If you want the wig to look as natural as possible, you’ll have to compromise and pick a color that’s closest to your natural color—albeit a little different.

The general rule of thumb is to opt for a shade that’s two shades darker than your root or lighter.

This is a safer option as opposed to picking a wild color that’s completely different, especially if you’re getting a wig for the first time.

Match the shade of the wig color to your skin tone

Whether you’re dyeing your hair or getting a wig, picking the right color has to do a lot with your skin tone. Find out whether your skin tone is warm or cool easily with this simple method:

Turn on all your bathroom lights and take off all your makeup. Grab a solid colored fabric such as a scarf or a t-shirt and hold it close to your face. If blues and greens look better against your skin, you have cool-toned skin and if reds and yellows look better, your skin has warm tones.

Another trick is to look at your veins; if they have a purplish tinge, you are cool-toned, but if they are greenish, you have warm-toned skin.

Play around with texture and styles

Pick a color that matches your personal style, or allows you to experiment with something completely different—without the permanence. Got curly hair but don’t want to use heat or chemicals? Try a straighter texture. Been a brunette your whole life, but curious about blonde, pink, or blue? Avoid bleach damage and try on a wig!
