  • Oval shaped face: Shaggy bob for short hair options and layered waves or curls for long hair options. Wig should hold good amount of volume to make the face look fuller
  • Square shaped face: The goal is to soften the wearer’s jawline so the perfect wig to choose are long, angle bob, or shoulder length with soft layers style.

  • For cool skin tone, options are inky, raven black, auburn red, ash brown, and  platinum blonde

The experts can assess your face shape and skin tone right, so you are guaranteed that their recommendation is the best wig for you to wear, remember real hair wigs are expensive and taking chances is definitely not an option to make.
