Beauty Bomb: The Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing WigsBeauty Bomb: The Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing Wigs
Wigs are no longer just your Auntie Maude’s little secret tucked away deeply on a wig head on her nightstand. In the last decade more and more women are embracing the type of quick versatility that comes with a wig, but it seems as if some ground rules need to be set.
So here is a list of wig do’s and don’ts for every wiggy to follow:
Don’t wear a wig straight from the package.
Do take it to a hairstylist to have it cut into a shape and style that suits your face (yes, even the $20 synthetic ones from the beauty supply).
Do get the most natural looking wig as possible in a modern style.
Don’t go for outrageous colors and be very careful with retro styles—unless you’re Nicki Minaj or a former Supreme.
Do go for a natural looking hairline.
Don’t do the crescent moon hairline. At all. Let your forehead be great.
Don’t go too bulky at the crown. It’s like wearing a shirt that says “Hey, I’m wearing a wig”
Do go age-appropriate. Sure, short wigs are fun but can make your average 21 year old look 57.
Do leave the lace fronts to the professionals. Even celebs with their glam squads get lace front wigs wrong, so leave it alone if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing. It’s okay. We can’t win them all.
For the love of your edges, don’t be a frequent user of wig glue.
