Why is it so difficult to find wigs in pure cool / ash tones?

Almost every wig color in the world, with very few exceptions, has a bit of gold, neutral (or “honey”) tones, or auburn mixed in, if only in subtle amounts. Pure ash colors do exist, especially in the platinum and lighter greys, but they are definitely few and far between. This is because ash tones tend to age people, and most women want to look younger than their actual age, not the other way around. It's also partially a matter of fashion. Pure ash tones can look a bit dated since they were very popular in the 1980s. (Though, in many regards, this is making a comeback. [Thanks, Taylor Swift!]) Another thing to consider: these trends differ depending on where you're from. For instance, in Britain and the EU, ashy blondes are some of the best selling colors! This is why you're more likely to find more of them in European brands than American ones. ;)

I loved your article and video, 9 major brands, no red tones—minimal gold!, However, when I looked for wigs with my favorite colors, I could not find them! I really loved the Meringue color in the Tony of Beverly in the video but could not find it anywhere and the same with the Ellen Wille Light Champagne color. I am having the darndest time finding the right color. I have a cool complexion, so I do not want to go too gold and red is out of the question. As I am older and am gray/white in root now, brown is not good, so blonde is the color of choice. Thanks.

That is a fantastic question! Now, I also have a question for you, have you measured your face? (from your hairline to your chin) This measurement will help greatly with figuring what the length of a style will be on you, especially when it comes those shorter, pixie cuts! I also have a very petite cap size and about a 7" long face. So, I know when I see a certain style has a fringe measurement of 3.75" (about 4"), I know it's most likely going to fall around my cheekbone, maybe a bit higher, like with Ivy by Noriko. I use this same trick for the side measurement as well. I find it really helps me determine if I'll like the length of a certain style.
