There are several things to consider when buying a wig, such as the type of cap, whether you prefer human or synthetic hair, and what color you like best. Face shape is another important factor in finding a wig that is right for you. Using your face shape as a guide can be particularly helpful if this is your first time wearing a wig or purchasing a wig online.
Generally, men and women have six different face shapes. Each shape is determined by the proportions of the forehead, cheekbones, jawline, and chin.
Someone with an oval face has a longer face, and the length of the face is about one and a half times the width. The forehead is usually slightly wider than the chin.
If a men have an oval face, he can wear almost any style of wig, specially men’s hair pieces best choice. Various hairstyles can flatter the proportions of an oval face.
A round face generally has little or no angular structure and larger cheeks that give it roundness.
The best wig styles for a round face have lots of layers or waves with volume. Try to look for shoulder length wigs or a longer style, as the layers of these wigs add structure and texture to a less angular jawline. Styles to avoid include short “pixie” hair, short bobs, and inward layered hairstyles.
Heart shaped face
People with heart-shaped faces tend to have a broader forehead, more pronounced cheekbones, and a chin that ends in a point. A wide variety of hairstyles look fantastic on a heart-shaped face, including chin-length or shorter cuts, hairstyles with side-swept bangs and inward layers.
People with a square face tend to have a broader and more pronounced chin and forehead. Often the forehead and jaw are the same width.
Because a square face has an angular jawline, it’s best to avoid chin-length cuts. However, a style with edgy bangs and long locks can soften a square face.
Hexagonal or diamond shaped face
People with a hexagonal or diamond-shaped face have a narrow forehead, a small chin, and the cheekbones are the widest part of the face. A diamond-shaped face is different from a heart-shaped one in that the forehead is not as wide. Most custom hair toupee and wigs styles look great on hexagonal faces, but both short and long hair look particularly flattering.
People with this face shape have elongated features, with a rounded forehead and chin. This shape is different from an oval face as a person with a long face has a narrower chin.
For the elongated face it is recommended to avoid wearing straight hair, as it will make the face look even longer. Voluminous layered styles look great on people with long faces as they appear to widen the face. In addition, the thick and abundant bangs, and the cuts below the chin favor this face shape.
You may find that your face shape doesn’t fit perfectly into a specific category. No problem! It is very common to have a face shape that is a combination of different features.
While your face shape can be a helpful guide to choosing a wig you like, don’t feel like it’s a hard and fast rule that you have to follow. The most important thing is to choose men’s lace wig style that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
