How to Choose The Best Hair Wig Length For You

Now I'm sure that you all know how to measure a hair wig and what each hair length will look like. Next, hair experts from Mic Hair will let you know how to choose the best hair wig length.

You need to know what your desired hair style is, including its texture, volume and thickness. For example, If you want a  straight short bob or pixie, 8 inches - 10 inches is enough for you. However, if you want a bit of curls on your hair with high density, 12 inches is highly recommended because S-shape will make it look 2-3 inches shorter. Moreover, your hair stylist will cut your hair to make it look more natural, so we suggest that you choose 1-2 inches longer than you desire.

Consider your height. We all know that a 12-inch wig is 12 inches long. However, if you are tall, wearing a 12-inch wig will look like it is 10 or shorter. It means that your height influences too much on how your hair wig will look.

Consider your face shape: The purpose of choosing the hair wig length is to make it complement or balance your facial features. Meanwhile most lengths will suit an oval shape, round, square or heart-shaped face requires special lengths to hide the weakness and show out all the beauty of your face.

By following these tips, you will choose the best hair wig length for yourself. If you are still confused, come to the nearest hair extension store and try a wig on. With some advice from the staff, you may get the best one.
