Choosing a wig that will totally and perfectly suit you can be a stressful task for many people. Long or short hair, straight or wavy, with or without bangs, blonde, brunette or redhead? Today we'll try to simplify your task by giving you all of our tips for choosing the color of the wig of your dreams.
As we mentioned earlier, choosing the right wig is a rigorous process, the last step of which is choosing the color. The first question you need to answer is: do you want to go for a similar look or take this opportunity to change your look?
If you are looking for a similar look, we have just one tip. The easiest way is to show a photo of your natural color to a hair technician so they can find the perfect color for you. However, for the second option, that of changing your look, here are some tips you can follow.
Examine your skin color
To find your perfect hair color, start by examining your skin color. If your skin has rather warm undertones, that is to say orange, gold, or brown, then look for a wig with a gold or red base. For example, you can go for chestnut, copper, dark blonde, or dark brown. On the other hand, if your skin has cool undertones, i.e. pink, blue and green, we recommend cooler colors instead. You can go, for example, towards ash blonde, like the model Fair by Ellen Wille available on our site, light brown, or black. Avoid hot colors which may dull your complexion.
In addition to the undertones, you can choose the color of your wig according to your skin color. The clearer your skin, the lighter shades will highlight you. Conversely, the darker your skin, the darker undertones will bring out your complexion. Therefore if you are very pale, we recommend a Venetian blonde, or caramel. If your skin tone is olive, you can go for brown tones like chestnut or ebony brown. And you will understand if you have dark skin we recommend a very dark wig, for example mahogany brown or intense black like this wig.
Pay attention to the color of your eyes
It is often said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul, so you might as well highlight them with a hair color that matches right? For blue and green eyes, we recommend red, brown, or even blonde. Clear eyes are easy to bring out. On the other hand, for brown eyes we advise you to find a color that will create a contrast. The darker the eyes, the more we recommend a light color such as blond, which will enhance your look.
For the shy ones
If changing your color completely scares you but you still want to change your cut, there are alternatives. Indeed, do not hesitate to go for "rooted" or "highlighted" wig models. The rooted models offer a contrast between the roots, which are darker, and the lengths, which are lighter. They give the impression of color and have a very natural effect. Highlighted models, for their part, give the illusion of lighter strands and give a sun effect that is much appreciated in summer in particular. A perfect example of both of these effects is the Ellen Will Stay Wig, which you can purchase here.
You will understand, whatever your desires you will inevitably find the perfect wig color for you. Because remember, "the perfect hairstyle is a myth, it does not exist". As long as you love your wig, then your hairstyle is perfect.
