Wig Colors Decoding: From A To Z About Choosing Color For Your Wig

Together with hair textures, style, and length, wig color is one of the most considerable factors to a wig buyer when she needs to purchase one. It is such a challenge to decide which hair color is ‘the chosen one’ for an individual, especially without any experiments. The length is not hard, it takes much fewer efforts to know the perfect length for you. The hair texture is even easier, touching it will nearly bring about a realistic experience. But how about wig colors? You cannot try out all the colors you like since it does not worth your time and money spent. 

This may have been your concern for a long time. So let us help you. 

Important Factors You Need To Consider

To know which wig color looks perfect on your head, you need to come to important factors that strongly impact on your appearance. They are tones of skin, face shapes, and the flexibility of the color.  

Skin Tones 

There is a huge variety of skin colors ranging from dark to light and to easily take them apart, we have skin tones.

What Is Skin Tone?

Human skin has three layers including epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. In the epidermis which is the outermost layer, we have a genetically endowed amount of melanin. Melanin, also known as the dark pigment, is a complex polymer primarily taking responsibility for human skin color. The type of cells that produce melanin is melanocyte. It protects the skin against damages from ultraviolet light in the environment by automatically producing melanin following a natural defense mechanism and this, of course, makes your skin darker. So your skin color depends a lot on how often it is exposed to the sunlight. 

Skin tones are generally grouped into 3 main categories: light, medium, and dark. 

Other tips and tricks:

Skin Undertones

While skin colors vary from light to dark, skin undertone is a permanent factor and it does not change over time. The easiest way to understand this is by looking at makeup products, especially foundations. You can see ‘cool’, ‘warm’, or ‘neutral’ in the name of each shade included in the series. Skin undertones refer to the muted colors beneath the surface of your skin. Since skin undertone remains unchanged, determining yours is very important to choose which wig color is suitable for you.

There are a lot of ways to determine your skin undertone, such as using a gold/silver test or looking at your veins.

Face Shapes

Another factor that has a great impact on your determining wig colors is your face shape. There is a countless number of face shapes with different sizes. However, generally speaking, we have 5 most common ones of them, they are heart-shaped, square-shaped, oval-shaped, round-shaped, and diamond-shaped. 

Heart-shaped Face

A heart-shaped face comes with a wide forehead, a slightly pointed chin, and, especially, an angular jawline. All of them make the face look like a heart.

Square-shaped Face

Just like a square, square-shaped faces have the width that is nearly equal to the length and an angular jaw – making them look like a square. 

Round-shaped Face

The most significant feature of round-shaped faces is their wide cheekbones with rounded-out foreheads and chins. 

Rectangle-shaped Face

This face shape has the same features as square one but its length is longer than its width.

Oval-shaped Face

If you have an oblong form with a narrow forehead and rounded chin, you are very lucky because it’s the oval face shape – easy to choose the hairstyle.
