How to Choose a Good-Quality Synthetic Wig

Wigs can be used for fashion, a temporary change from your own natural hairstyle, or serve as your hair in instances of scalp or medical conditions. However, the primary goal is selecting a realistic-looking wig that fools others into thinking it’s really your hair. Choosing the right synthetic wig will help you look your best while sporting your new faux ‘do.



Examine the synthetic wig against a real human hair option. Choose the one that mimics real hair in terms of sheen, color and drape.

Feel a variety of synthetic wigs. Coarse wigs look less natural but normally have a lower price point. Better quality options feel silky and fine, again resembling real hair.


Select a monofilament or hand-tied synthetic wig. Monofilament wigs look very much like real hair growing from your scalp once you put them on. Hand-tied synthetic wigs tend to be less dense, resembling the natural way human hair tends to grow. Hand-tied options appear more natural and less bulky than machine-wefted or stitched wigs, enabling increased styling options.

Find a wig that is heat-friendly. Cheaper synthetic wigs are easily damaged from curling irons, flat irons and some higher-powered blow dryers. Heat-friendly options hold their style until heat is reapplied, even through washings.

Blends offer the look of real hair with the easier maintenance of synthetics.
