All wigs aren’t for everyone. If you want to find the wig just right for you, then search based on your face shape.
To do so, you have to figure out what your face shape is. The easiest way is to look into a mirror and use a tube of lipstick to lightly trace the outline of your face. You can also use the “selfie” side of your phone camera with an app such as SnapChat to draw directly onto a picture.
There are five standard face shapes: oval, round, heart, long and square.
OVAL: If your face is narrow at the jaw and the length of your face is about 1.5 times the width, you have an oval face shape.
You’re in luck! Because this face shape is so symmetrical, nearly any wig will work with it. Consider one that will draw attention to your face shape, such as a long bob wig.
ROUND: If your hairline is wide and your face is short, full and broad, then you have a round face shape.
The best wig for this shape will be fuller at the crown in order to make the face appear longer. Choose a longer style.
HEART: If your forehead is wide and your chin is narrow, you have a heart-shaped face.
A cropped wig or a style with a long fringe will best suit you by helping your face appear more balanced.
LONG: If you have a pointed chin and a narrow face, you have a long face shape.
Choose a wig that will add width, such as waves or curls.
SQUARE: If your jaw is the same width as your forehead, you have a square face.
In order to soften the sharp angles of your cheeks and jaw, choose a wig that adds height, and focus on soft waves or layers.
