How To Choose The Right Wig Color
Hair color is tricky.
Finding the right hair color, one that makes you feel beautiful and ready to take on the world, is even trickier. From skin tone to eye color, there are many factors that tie into which color will look best. The big advantage to wearing a wig is that you can easily get the color you want without chemically damaging your hair. So why not experiment and consider color beyond your natural tone?
Coose a shade that complements your skin tone. Skin tone is very important when choosing a wig color. As you age, your skin tone tends to fade. Hair color close to your own skin tone or slightly lighter will brighten your complexion and give you a more youthful look. A strong contrast between your hair and skin tone will draw more focus to your facial features.
If you’re buying your wig online, choosing a color can be a challenge! With over a large variety of colors to choose from, your decision may seem impossible. Plus, each color description has all those seemingly illogical letters and numbers. What’s a wig wearer supposed to do?
Contrary to how it may look, the color system is actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it:
● Blacks range from 1 to 1B.
● Browns range from 2 to 12.
● Blondes range from 14 to 26.
● Natural reds range from 27 to 33.
● Vibrant reds range from 130 to 134.
● Grays range from 34 to 60.
1.Don’t forget about your eyes.
If your eyes are golden brown, green, hazel, or light blue, choose a wig with dark or golden browns, chestnut, auburn, or red highlights. If your eye color is dark brown, deep blue/blue-gray, or dark hazel, choose a wig with more natural colors, such as black, brown, and blonde tones.
2.Think back to the hair color of your youth.
If you were blonde when you were a child, chances are, blonde will also work for you as an adult. To match your current skin tone, choose a shade that’s slightly darker than what you had as a child.
3.Hoping for highlights?
You’ll be happy to discover that both synthetic wigs and human hair wigs are pre-blended with natural-looking highlights, designed with a variety of shades that provide a rich, natural-looking color. If your wig is auburn, choose copper highlights to brighten the look. Natural brunettes look best with caramel, and blondes look best with honey tones. Open to the ombre trend? We offer ombre wigs too.
Buying a wig is exciting. With a simple change of color you can instantly change your look. Plus trying new colors is faster, easier, and won’t damage your natural hair. Don’t forget to consider your skin tone, eye color, and personality as you are making your selection. Once you meet your “color”, you’ll discover a new confident you.
