How To Choose The Best Quality Wig

Share Post:

Are you looking for a quality wig but not sure where to start? It’s not easy to choose the right kind of wig. It can be difficult to find a wig that fits your face shape, skin tone, and personality. Because a wig can dramatically alter your appearance, it should be carefully chosen to complement your best features.

Wigs and hairpieces mean confidence!

The emotional aspects of living with hair loss can be challenging, so wigs and hairpieces can help be a salve to that.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the best wig, but some are particularly important. The good news is that the team at JWO (Jewishwigsonly) has oodles of experience when it comes to knowing which wig is best for each individual client.

No two wigs we make are ever the same, and we take the time to get to know each of our clients well during our free consultations. Best of all, every product we create is specifically customised and so realistic that no one will know you’re wearing a hairpiece.  We match the client’s needs and real human hair wigs can be customised to do just that.

As most of our clients come to us because they’re looking for immediate solutions for partial or total hair loss due to medical reasons, we’re going to discuss some of the common queries we get asked on a daily basis.

So, sit back, relax, and read through our top advice on how to choose the best wig to compliment your own style and give you show-stopping confidence every time you wear it.

If you choose the right quality wig, no one will ever know that those beautiful locks aren’t really yours!


Not all wigs are suitable for all face shapes. Some faces have a round shape, while others have an irregular pentagon shape.

To choose the ideal wig, you must first determine your face shape. If your face is round, for example, you should choose a wig that fully opens up your face. If your face is more triangular in shape, a wig that covers some of your foreheads is recommended. This isn’t a hard and fast rule, but you should choose a wig that flatters your face type.


Standing in front of a mirror, examine the full outline of your face. To identify your face shape, trace the outline of your face onto the mirror with something that can easily be removed from the mirror surface, such as a bar of soap or lipstick.

Alternatively, you can use a recent portrait photograph and trace the outline of your face onto a piece of paper with tracing paper and a pencil.

Measure from your front hairline to just above the ears with a soft tape measure, then round to where your neck bends, under the occipital bone (also known as the Bone of Knowledge!). Then go back to where you started at the front hairline.


Your skin colour, tone, and hue often determine your own natural hair colour. The best thing about wearing a wig is that you can choose any colour under the sun – and mix up your look every day – without colouring your own natural locks.

The safe choice is to choose a shade similar to your natural hair colour, but if you are really looking for something new, you can venture “outside the box” and take a few risks and have fun with colour, by choosing whichever colour catches your eye.

Have fun choosing different wig colours! We love this platinum-blonde and violet-pink ombre wig.


The right wig cap size matters for wig comfort and security. It won’t feel comfortable or look natural if your wig is too loose or too tight and you should not feel burdened by the weight, as wigs and hairpieces can be worn for long periods of time.  Most adults can wear an average wig capsize, but it’s worth taking your measurements to make sure you get the right fit.

You’ll need a tape measure to determine the circumference of your head. Wrap the tape measure behind your ear, all the way to the nape of your neck, starting at the front of your hairline. Wrap the tape measure behind your other ear and back to the front of your hairline after that.

When you have your measurements, check them against a wig cap size chart to ensure you get the right fit, whether it’s average, petite, or large.

Remember that wigs by JWO (JewishWigsOnly) come with an adjustable strap, allowing you to tighten or loosen your wig by up to an inch if necessary.  The wig caps are soft and breathable, so even when you feel hot, the caps are still easy to wear.

Expert Tip: If you’re buying a wig for medical reasons, make sure it’s comfortable enough to wear on a daily basis. A wig band is similar to a headband in that it is made of soft, thin fabric, but it is worn under your wig.


The decision between human hair and a synthetic hair is the final key step in determining how to choose the right wig.

Both human hair and synthetic wigs have advantages and disadvantages in terms of maintenance, styling, longevity, and cost.

We only sell 100% real human hair at JewishWigsOnly. Why? Because human hair:

  • Has the most natural appearance and feel.
  • The hair cuticles are unaffected and continue to run in the same direction.
  • Has the same look, feel, and movement as natural hair.
  • Because the cuticles run in the same direction, they are less prone to tangling and matting.
  • With proper care, your wig will remain shiny and healthy-looking for many years.
  • Hot tools can be used to style it.
  • Can be coloured or highlighted.
Choosing a wig crafted from 100% real human hair is the best type of hair if you are wanting a natural-looking head of hair.


Understanding how to choose the right hairpiece is crucial to feeling confident in your search for the perfect wig. You will always feel comfortable and look fabulous if you choose the right size, colour, and hair type.

Whether you’re new to the scene or a seasoned hairpiece wearer, the staff at JWO (JewishWigsOnly) has a wealth of knowledge. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.
