How to Choose

It may seem like a somewhat overwhelming task to choose the right wig, but it doesn’t have to be. 

There are some guidelines that may prove helpful when choosing wigs online. There are three main things that you must ascertain before ordering wigs online; your face shape, the color you wish to order and what size wig to order. Once you have these three things determined, place your order and sit back and wait for your new look to be delivered to the door. 


Face Shapes:

1.    Oval: The face is longer than it is wide; the cheekbones are wider than the jaw. The oval face is proportional and is not considered to have a dominant area. Therefore, oval shaped faces in general look well with most hairstyles, textures and lengths.

2.    Oblong: The shape is distinguished by long, narrow bone structure. To add softness and give the impression of Oval, use half-bangs or a fringe across the forehead area, curls at the nape of the neck and at the crown.

3.    Heart: Easily stands out with wide forehead and narrower chin. To balance out this shape face, make sure some hair falls onto the forehead area to hide its width, wear hair full around the jaw and in front of the ears, wear close to the head near the eyes. This adds volume around the chin to offset the wide forehead.

4.    Triangle: The opposite of heart shaped with wide chin and narrow forehead. Wear curly styles or shaped layers with tapered side and back to soften the edges.

5.    Round: Characterized by fullness below the cheekbones and a wide hairline. Look good with linear or geometric styles that serve to “break up” the round look. When possible, add height, avoid width.

6.    Square: Wide jaw and hairline; need waves or height on top and narrow at the sides. Add height by combing hair off the forehead; wisps, waves and curls around the face eliminate the straight lines and soften the characteristics of the square shaped face.

7.    Diamond: Narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Best style for this face shape is a bob with narrow sides and volume at the chin. Do not style with volume at the sides or top height. Bangs or a fringe will cover the narrow forehead.

Next, peruse the online color charts or request sample hair color  from SNS Hairs to ascertain the right color for you. Or, we cut a small sample of your hair and they can match for you. Remember, if you are going for an all out change, it is better to go lighter than darker.

Last, determine what your head size is. Although SNS Hairs are elasticized for perfect fit, you must measure the circumference of your head. Measure for circumference with a cloth tape: from the front hairline and around just above the ear to the base of the skull and back to point of origin. Match you result to petite, average or large size to order your SNS Hairs.
