If you suffer from hair loss, you might have considered getting a wig, then looked online and got completely overwhelmed by the options. What style and colour do you choose? Will it fit right and suit your lifestyle as well as your budget?
Buying a wig online can be a minefield, as the quality of the hair can vary massively, so if you want a wig that makes you feel beautiful and confident, how can you be sure you’re going to end up with the perfect wig for you?
You could buy a custom wig.
So what are the benefits of wearing a custom wig?
Read on to find out!
What exactly is a custom wig?
A custom wig or topper is made to fit the exact measurements of your head. Not only that, it’s completely customisable and is created totally from scratch.
There are so many wigs available, why choose a custom wig?
There are so wigs available online in different styles, prices, and colours, so why would you choose a custom wig?
Well if you are living with long-term hair loss and using a wig to disguise it while you’re waiting for your natural hair to grow, a custom wig is a great investment. Yes, there are cheaper options available but they might not fit so well or look so good, and you want to look and feel as confident and beautiful as possible, especially if hair loss has affected your self-esteem.
With a custom wig you can choose:
- An exact colour or shade: you can match your exact natural colour or go for something a little more daring, it’s totally up to you.
- The hair type and style: we can match your wig with the texture of your natural hair, and style it exactly how you want (a good option if you’re pushed for time, or if styling wigs isn’t your strong point). You can also choose something that you know is going to suit your lifestyle.
And most importantly because a custom wig is made to measure for your own head, it will fit just right. You can’t be sure that a wig you bought online is going to be a perfect fit or that the hairline is going to match up with your natural hairline. An ill-fitting wig won’t make you feel beautiful or confident, and it’s a waste of your hard-earned money.
If you want quality and longevity, choose a custom wig
You might have a few cheaper wigs that you wear every now and again, and they may do the job, but if you are suffering from hair loss and you’re going to be wearing wigs for a long time, I’d recommend you opt for a custom wig.
When a wig fits well and looks the part, you’ll look and feel your best. Custom wigs aren’t the cheapest option, but like many things in life, you do get what you pay for, so if you care for your custom wig properly, it will last you a long time.
