Your first time wearing a wig does not have to be petrifying - Wigs Explained



If you have been thinking of purchasing your first wig then this is your sign. You've been seeing hair vid transformations all over facebook,instagram and tiktok. You might think to yourself that you would never achieve the same look. False. Since granny wore wigs, wig technology has advanced significantly. Don't get caught up in the details. 

Are you ready to give it a try? I need you to say it out loud if the answer is yes! Definitely! Good, because 'confidence' is the key to wearing wigs. A big part of the appeal of wearing wigs is confidence. Having the confidence is half the battle. Gather inspiration pictures next. How do you want to look? Do you want your wig to look like your natural hair, or do you want something completely different? Would you prefer straight, wavy, or curly hair? Would you prefer synthetic or human hair? Nikki V Beauty currently offers a wide variety of virgin human hair lace wigs for you to choose from). Do you have a budget in mind?



As a wig expert, I can affirm that at least 60% of my customers have never worn wigs before. They didn't know where to begin. A large percentage of those customers now know so much more than when they began. They know what haircuts and colors work best with their face shape and skin tone. After a while, they begin exploring new hair trends, but please understand that their knowledge of wigs didn't just appear overnight.

My first question to someone who is new to wearing wigs is, 'What is your life style?' Do you have a hectic schedule as a mom? Do you work out every day? Attending galas events all the time is your thing? Or are you trying something new? Each of those options is fine. It helps gauge what type of wig will be most suitable for you. I would suggest something that is easy to put on if you are always on the go. You do not need to style a body wave or curly because it looks great without any styling. For someone who is very active and works out regularly, my choice would be the same. It might be beneficial for you to wear a headband, lace closure wig, or full cap wig. 4x4 lace closure wigs are currently on sale. My opinion is that full cap & lace closure wigs are the most low maintenance wigs since they have little to no lace. Putting the wig on isn't difficult and requires little to no assistance from a hairstylist. Browse the sport "Flexible" wigs we offer.

People who are public figures or in the entertainment industry may be interested in wearing 13x4 lace frontal wigs. Lace frontal wigs are more advanced due to the amount of lace on the cap. This wig requires more technique in order to mimic a natural scalp. The lace material on the wig stretches from one ear to the other 13 inches across and 4 inches wide. I recommend that if you choose this unit, you hire a professional hairstylist to install it for you. These wigs are fabulous and can give you a flawless polished look if correctly installed. 

This lace wig is not for beginners unless you have experience in installing wigs. This lace wig gets its name because the lace material on it extends 360 degrees around the perimeter of the head. It is popular with those who wear updos.


We are covering full lace wigs. A full lace wig gets its name because the entire cap is made of lace. There are no tracks of hair wefted into this wig. It is ventilated with single lines of hair all over. Similar to 360 lace wigs, full lace wigs are for more experienced wig wearers. These wigs are usually worn for special events and are not practical to wear every day because of the upkeep of the unit. These wigs are not cheap and are usually more costly.

I find wigs very interesting. They are probably the greatest invention ever made. In conclusion, I can go on and on about the topic, but I won't. My advice to those interested in wigs is, "just do it!". Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. Don't worry about what other people might think. Decide whether you want a lace closure or headband. After that, order new wigs. You can test out different wigs to see if they are right for you. If you don't like them, you can take them off.

(I did not mention 'custom wigs'' because our list is currently closed but if youre interested in a custom wig please sign up with an email.)

Wigs that have already been customized to look more natural are called custom wigs. Knots of the wig are bleached, the hairline has been plucked to mimic a natural hairline, often baby hairs are carved out on the unit, and the hair has been colored and styled. Most customers request that the lace on the wig be cut off. This does not require any effort on the part of the customer. It takes just a few seconds to slide on the unit and your look is complete. This is often referred to on our site as a ''Ready to Wear'' wig. This wig is perfect for beginners who lack knowledge about customization of wigs. Ready-to-wear wigs are custom-made for you.
