Choosing the Best Wig To Suit Your Face Shape
'Will it suit me?' A question we often get asked at Hair by MissTresses
We hope the following guide will enable you to select a new hairstyle wig from Hair By MissTresses that both flatters and suits you.
Choosing the best wigs to suit your face can be a tad daunting but, once you are aware of your face shape and your best features, you can experiment with confidence and select from the range of wigs by MissTresses.
Firstly - take a look at yourself in the mirror, what are your most beautiful, favourite or striking features? Have a sideways glance as well as a full on view, you can even record a video from your telephone, webcam or camera to see your face as others see it - great for side views and differing angles.
Secondly - Is there anything feature you want to hide or show off? Take this into consideration when browsing at wigs.
Try to categorize your face shape into one of those listed below. Everyone is different facially so a beautiful hairstyle on you may not look so attractive on someone else.
Wigs can change your look dramatically, you can opt for looking younger, more sophisticated or use them to change your style before getting a new permanent hairstyle at the salon.
Confidence plays a big part in wearing wigs, if you feel confident in your new hairstyle you will look and feel more attractive, the opposite is also true. If you want to garner more attention then go for fuller brighter styles [ black hair also works a treat if you are looking for a dramatic change!]
Once you have decided what face shape you have this his will help determine the most suitable MissTresses wig for you. We have included tips on hairstyles and added some MissTresses wig design photographs to suit each face shape.
The main facial shape categories generally fall into the following -
Heart Shape, Round, Oval and Square Shaped.
Heart Face Shape Features.
Your forehead is wider than your jaw and your chin is narrower.
Celebrities with this face shape: Reese Witherspoon, Faith Hill, Heather Graham.
The most flattering heart shape wig styles are
•Short and full
Suggestions- The chin length bob or medium length straight style is made particularly for your face shape.
Our most popular wig for customers with this face shape is the enduring Goldie.
Best Avoided - Styles that emphasis your upper face, don't wear wig styles with long partings. You mostly likely have prominent cheekbones so stay away from top heavy full wigs.
Round Face Shape Features.
Your face is full and widest at your cheeks, your chin is rounder. Celebrities with this face shape: Catherine Zeta Jones, Drew Barrymore, Kate Winslet.
Best round face hairstyles are
•Long length with wispy sides ['bangs']
•Longer thinner fringe.
•Wigs that finish at the bottom of your chin.
Suggestions - Always try wigs with fullness at the crown such as Fearne. Styles that also work for you are shorter ones such as Chanelle. Any styles that have layers and cut close to your face will add length to your roundness and make your face appear slimmer. Try the inverted bob style such as Alix Vicky or Katie.
Best Avoided - Styles that contain rounded lines in the edges, stay away from the pageboy and from centre partings and short croppped wigs, which will make your face appear fuller than it actually is.
Oval Face Shape Features
Oval faces are long, with a high forehead and narrower chin. Celebrities with this face shape: Jessica Biel, Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey.
Suggestions - You are a lucky lady! Since almost all styles look good on you, you can wear more hairstyles than any other facial structure. You can try short, medium, and long wigs in straight, layered, wavy or curly styles.
Best Avoided- Try to avoid wearing lots of hair on your face, this can make your face appear heavier.
Square Face Shapes have foreheads and jawline that are about the same width top and bottom.
Celebrities with this face shape: Jessica Simpson, Sandra Bullock, Janet Jackson
Suggested wig styles are
• Sideswept bangs
• Shoulder length wigs
• Short layers
Suggestions- Short hairstyle wigs are made for your face shape. The best styles for your shape include short to medium length in waves and curls, they take the emphasis away from your jawline. To soften your square features try wigs with layers as well as off centre or side parting wigs.
Best Avoided - Always avoid long straight wigs as they can make your jawline protrude. Stay away from blunt fringes straight across the forehead, centre partings are also best avoided.
Layered bobs finishing above your jaw are great for your face shape.
