A Buyer’s Guide to Neon Wigs

1. Select Your Style

When selecting a wig, you need to decide on the shape and style for you. You may decide to choose a wig style that looks similar to the style of your own hair, or you might feel a little adventurous and try out a new cut with a fresh and neon colour. Either way, deciding on the colour and cut beforehand will give you a great head start on your journey.

2. Cap it Off

Once you’ve decided on a style, this will help you to decipher which cap construction is best for you. For people who want more flexibility with styling and parting, a lace front wig allows you to part the hair on the wig wherever you like. This allows you to style the wig in a way that suits you best, helping you to feel more comfortable and confident in your wonderful new wig. If you’re going for a more specific look, for example, if you’re modeling after a certain character, you may want a simple capped wig that pulls on easily, rather similar to the Halloween wigs you may have worn as a child.

3. Real or Synthetic?

One of the biggest decisions you need to make is whether to invest in a human hair wig or a synthetic wig. Human hair wigs are often seen as superior as they obviously feel and look like real hair, which often comes at a greater price. However, synthetic wigs can have equivalent quality at a much cheaper price, which is often the better pick for people who might need a variety of wigs.
