03 Face Shapes

Oval face

As this facial shape is so proportional, it matches all the styles and lengths perfectly. So, it’s your choice to select a wig you like. You can also accentuate the ideal features of this face shape with a thick blunt bob, side-swept bangs, or medium layered style.

Round face

This face shape looks relatively short; therefore, you should choose a wig style that can elongate your face and soften the fullness of your cheeks. The best wigs for the round-shaped face are long layered styles and off-center parting. Wigs with wide curls, wispy bangs, and blunt look should not be in your list as they will make your face look rounder.

Square face

What you need if you have a square-shaped face is some height at the top and narrowness at the sides to create the illusion of length. Hence, it will look great with wavy wigs or wigs with deep side parts and subtle bangs. Longer wigs with a layered look will also be a smart choice to complement your face. This face type should avoid straight hairstyles that can make your face look squarer.

Diamond face

A diamond-shaped face will go best with wigs that create narrower sides and fullness at the chin. Bob, short textured lob, long side-swept bangs are some styles you can consider for your wig. A straight bang will also a good way to shorten your face, or a high ponytail can help you to show off your cheekbones.

Heart face

If you have a heart-shaped face, a wig with side-swept bangs will help to soften the width of your forehead. Layered wigs with shoulder-length are also the perfect assistant. And it’s better to avoid short bangs and super long wigs.

Pear face

A longer wig will be a marvelous item for people with a pear-shaped face as it disguises the prominence of the jawline. If you want a new style with short wigs, make sure you add some volume to the top of the wig to bring fullness to the top of your face.

Oblong face

With this face shape, you should not go with long and sleek wigs since they make your face look longer. Short wigs with layers, curly wig, and wigs with body are will help your face appear wider. Hence, keep those wig styles in your list.
