Your hair can change your entire look – and can often make you look years younger INSTANTLY!

 


Do you need help finding a wig to suit your face and style?

 

 

Don’t worry - we offer multiple resources to help you find the right wig online!

 

1) First, you will need to determine your face shape. You can do that by using our handy-dandy flow chart and/or viewing the celeb pics below. This is a great place to start!





Personalized Wig Search Service: Still Stumped - or just curious to find out some more information? Send us a brief description of what you're looking for and a few pics of you, your face, and what sort of things you like & we'll send you our personal suggestions for you! Just send us an email and it will go directly to co-owner and manager, Heather (the lady on our video wig reviews). She really knows her stuff and would be very happy to give you personalized assistance finding something that will work for you. Just let us know what styles & colors you tend to like and what environment you'll be wearing it in. Give us some reference pics and we'll do the rest!

 

 

2) Check out some of our recommendations for each face shape.



Round: If you have a round face, your face will be about as wide as it is long. This may vary a little where your face is not quite as wide as it is long, but usually pretty close. (Think Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, Drew Barrymore, Mila Kunis, Adele, and Kirsten Dunst.) This face shape often has a sweet, sunny, somewhat youthful appeal. Contrary to popular belief, people can have round faces and still be skinny...and voluptuous women can often have other face shapes, too! So, be careful to make sure you aren't assuming this is the right face shape just because you have some curves.

Our personal recommendations: 1) Madison by Envy - Long, razor cut layers and a fringe bange and structure and definition to your face, 2) Jamison by Estetica - the flattering length and shape of this cut define soft jawlines and frames the face in the prettiest way possible! 3) Kristen by Jon Renau - a bob that is longer and more layered than the Jamison, 4) Adriana by Jon Renau - A sexy, glamorous wig with cascading loose curls in layers down the back, 5) Angie by Envy - Short, sexy layers, natural volume, and long, face-framing front give definition and a more nuanced shape to round faces, 6) Miranda by Amore - Beautiful feathery layers frame the jaw to give it shape and draw the eye upward towards the eyes.

Square: Very similar to a round face shape except square faces have a characteristic strong, angular jawline. (Think Keira Knightly, Olivia Wilde, Geena Davis, Demi Moore, and Katie Holmes.) The face measures about the same from top to bottom as from side to side. The recommendations are similar triangular faces (below). 

Triangle & Pear: Jawlines and cheeks are full and pronounced with noticeable narrowing towards the forehead. (Think Minnie Driver, Billie Piper, Kelly Osborne, Queen Latifah, and Nicole Ritchie.) We recommend triangles follow the same suggestions as squares, since you're all trying to minimize and accentuate the same parts! 

Our personal recommendations: 1) Victoria by Jon Renau - a graduated, angled bob with longer front provides subtle coverage of the jawline to soften the angles of your face, 2) Brianna by Envy - not all face shapes can carry long, voluminous spirals - but square faces definitely can! 3) Codi by Amore - soft, rounded graduated bob with side swept bang counters the harsh angles of the lower half of some square faces, 4) McKenzie by Envy - the long layers begin mid-shoulders, which is perfect placement for someone who wants to minimize a pronounced jaw, 5) Jade Large Cap by Envy - perfect for anyone who wants some volume but is afraid of adding too much width to their face. The layered curls begin around the ears with volume at the top, long layers around the face, and a length that is very flattering, flirty, and feminine, 6) Zara Large Cap by Jon Renau - simple, elegant, and feminine, this ultra-sleek ultra-long with will make heads turn!

Oblong and Rectangle: Your face is longer than it is wide. Your forehead, cheeks and jawline are all the same width. (Think Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler, Megan Fox, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Angelina Jolie.) The only difference between the two is that oblong faces have a rounded jawline, while rectangles have a square, angular jaw. Because your face is longer, we suggest avoiding cuts that end at the chin. (So most bob cuts are out.)

Our personal recommendations: 1) Bobbi by Envy - This wig has layers in all the right places to hit a long face right at the chin, mking this wig highly flattering 2) Caroline by Revlon - This is is a stunner on with it's luscious feathered layers on top an gentle waves at the bottom, 3) Orchid by Estetica - beachy waves that start below the chin and sexy long layers are perfect for this face shape, 4) Zara by Rene of Paris (Coming in May!) - facial features can get lost on a long face. This modern short cut hits at the cheekbones to break up the lines of your face and add some definition, 5) Angelica by Noriko - long, sexy, an layered without too much volume up top, 6) Still Curls by Forever Young - this wig has tons of curls and tons of volume that "blooms" mid-face.

Heart: A heart-shaped (or inverted triangle-shaped) face is longer than it is wide. Your jawline is long and pointed, and is the narrowest part of your face. Many heart-shaped faces have a "widow's peak" hairline. (Think Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Aniston, Tyra Banks, Jessica Simpson, Kristen Stewart, or Reese Witherspoon.) The heart-shaped face is wide at the temples and forehead, full at the cheeks and narrow at the chin.

Our personal recommendations: 1) Ashley by Envy - midlength curly bob with center part - with nice volume without adding too much height at the crown, making it great for heart-shaped faces! 2) Sienna by Estetica - light-weight stunner makes for a nice alternative to the bob cuts often suggested for this face shape, 3) Runway Fashion by Forever Young - layer upon razored layer of face flattering hair add depth and contrast to your shape while the long bang camouflages a wide forehead (bangs, side-swept fringe, and dramatic side-parts work very well for heart-shaped faces in general), 4) Emma by Estetica - the perfect sleek little bob with the perfect amount of hair for a flattering everyday wear experience, 5) Drew by Jon Reneau  - a longer bob for our executive ladies who crave a day-to-night look, 6) May by Noriko  - a perfect mid-length bob with slightly feathered trim truly compliments almost every face shape.

Oval and Diamond: Oval is considered the "ideal" face shape in our society. (Lucky you!) Your face is symmetrical and has length equal to one and a half times width. Diamond is similar in that it is widest at the cheeks and narrow at the forehead and jaw. The only difference between the two is that diamond faces have pointier chins. (Ovals: Think Raquel Welch, Ashley Greene, Jessica Alba, and Beyoncé. Diamonds: Minka Kelly, Elizabeth Hurley, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicole Kidman.These are the most versatile face shapes of the bunch. You can basically pull off any wig in our store! 

Our personal recommendations: 1) Modern Bob by Revlon - edgy and modern, with a full straight bang, 2) Heidi by Jon Renau - This gorgeous mid-length wavy style will be a hit during Spring and Summer months! 3) Miley by Envy -   An short asymmetric boy cut that is feisty and fun, 4) Elle by Envy- This is a gorgeous little shag that has oodles of body! 5) Shilo by Noriko  - long, luscious layers frame the face with a realistic part
