Wigs, hairpieces, and hair extensions should be a big part of your femme wardrobe if you still haven’t managed to grow out your own hair, especially if you want to start with transgender dating. Trust us, a great wig can boost your whole look and add a little glam to it. Therefore, if you still haven’t decided which hairpieces you should get, here are several guidelines that might help you make up your mind.
Types of hair
As you probably know, not all hairpieces are made from the same material. While some wigs are completely made out of human hair, others are made from synthetic one, and there are those that contain both types of hair. If you can afford it, a human hair is definitely your best choice, since it looks very natural (well, duh) and it can be styled and dyed just like your own hair. One big downside is that it’s heavier and requires more styling.
On the other side, synthetic hair is cheaper and if you get a high-quality one, no one will be able to tell that it’s not your real hair. Unfortunately, you can’t style it with a curling iron because it will melt. These types of wigs have a limited lifespan, so after five or six months you will have to get another one.
Finally, blended hair offers the best from both worlds, it is cheaper, looks amazing and you can style it any way you want.
If you are buying a wig, pay attention to the cap construction. Nowadays, you have standardized cap wigs, capless ones, monofilament and lace ones, so ask the salesperson to see which one suits your needs the best. The ones that are made of lace are currently very popular since they are the most natural-looking option.
In case you already have long hair but you want to give it more volume, hairpieces are a great choice. However, pay attention that the color of the hairpieces matches your hair color. Don’t worry, you can always dye them afterward if they are made of human hair.
Do you think that a long and sexy ponytail will go great with your whole outfit? Well, you can dazzle your date even if you don’t have long hair. Just pull back your hair, attach a ponytail hairpiece to it and you are good to go!
These useful things add length and fullness to your hair. However, make sure your hair is thick enough to hide the base of hair extensions. Therefore, if you have thinning hair or a receding hairline, choose a wig instead.
