Maybe it's even trichotillomania, alopecia, genetics, stress or severe pattern baldness. Now is the time to make the change, become a more confident you. You've done your research, and you've settled on the idea that a wig will be your best option. You're gearing up to find the best establishment that will suit your needs, here are some tips to help in your quest.
Be sure it's a wig that you need
Often first time hair loss researches will automatically assume that their hair loss is so bad that they need a wig. This isn't always the case, so be sure to speak with a hair loss specialist before you make any assumptions.
Think about what kind of style you want
First time human hair wig wearers often spend a lot time wondering what a wig would look like on them, as well as what style would suit them the best. It's recommended that for your first wig you lean towards a style that your hair once had, or something similar to your own hair, but with a bit more volume and length. Also consider what natural texture would suit you (curly, wavy or straight). Curly, of course would require the most maintenance, and if you are not accustomed to styling, we would suggest something that is naturally straight.

Bring a loved one
Another incredibly important component of getting a new wig is who you surround yourself with. Some may find hair loss solutions to be a difficult transition, and through this process, it's important to have a strong support system. Have a friend or family member come with you to wig shop, they know you better than anyone! With the help of a loved one and a wig specialist, you'll be at your most comfortable.
Get it customized
If you get a human hair wig, you should definitely have it cut and shaped, into a length and style that best suits your face. Some people prefer less volume
Learn how to care for it
Most wig establishments offer style tutorials where you can learn how to wash and style the wig on your own. Some will also offer a drop off service where you can leave and pick-up your wig after it has been styled.
This may seem like a no brainer, but your new human hair wig won't stand a chance if you aren't wearing it. First time wig wearers often worry that their wig is obvious looking and that everyone will notice. The fact is, people are unable to tell unless you let them know. Sometimes it may take a couple days to get accustomed to the fact that you have some additional volume on your head, but remember that's what you're after! In a couple of months you may find that you would want to add more to your new look!
