Buying a Wig can be a daunting task, as there are so many options available. At Parrucche we are asked many questions and have listed a few of the most commonly asked below and have also given a few little video clips to answer some more.
We are always happy to answer any other questions and can be contacted here.
What type of wig should I buy?
There are many types of wigs available. Please see our Types of Fibres information section for hair types.
The type of wig you choose will depend on your budget, the look you want to achieve, and how often you plan to wear the wig.
And if purchased through NHS prescription, the wig entitlement will be indicated on your prescription.
How do I choose the right colour?
When choosing a wig colour, it’s important to consider your skin tone, eye colour, and natural hair colour. You can also try on different wigs to see which colour looks best on you. Parrucche are here to guide you on colour and style.
How do I know the right size of wig to choose?
Wigs can come in various sizes, in the most part the size can depend on the brand, so an average size may differ from brand to brand, but Parrucche can amend and size your wig to ensure it fits comfortably.
How do I care for my wig?
Caring for your wig is important to keep it looking its best. Please refer to our Wig Care section for more information.
How will my wig stay on?
Once we ensure your wig fits you correctly, it should feel secure enough, however there are generally wig adjusters in all wigs to help you tighten or loosen the fit as necessary.
And there are additional options to wear underneath your wig if you want a little extra security, such as wig liners, nylon caps, wig grips, velvet bands and silicon bands to name a few. Parrucche are here to advise further on these options and their suitability for you.
How long will my wig last?
This will generally vary depending on a few factors including the length, but especially how often you wear it and look after it. A guide for Synthetic Fibre if worn regularly & properly maintained would be around 4 to 6 months (this can vary less or more) and for Human Hair Wigs up to 1 year or more if proper care is applied, but can most definitely vary depending on length and cap construction.
