Recently, wearing braided wigs has become more of a fashion statement than anything else. Every person desires to feel attractive and secure in their skin. The majority of women who are fashion-conscious use wigs in a variety of styles and colors. What could be better than having a new hairstyle every day without having to schedule an appointment with your stylist? However, how can you choose the one that is most appropriate for you?
Which Wig Style Should I Choose?
There are hundreds (if not thousands) of braided wig styles available. And if this is your first time wearing a wig, you may feel a little nervous about the whole experience, but have no fear!
Wigs have made significant advancements over the years and now provide the exact look you desire, completely blending in with your scalp and facial features. Consider wearing anything that more closely matches your current or past hairdo when purchasing your first braided wig.
Maintaining and styling your hair will be easier if you stick to what you're comfortable with. Because many knotless braided wigs can be fashioned in various ways, you may always take your wig to a salon that specializes in wig care or do it yourself later.
The Different Types Of Wigs
Wigs with Lace Front
A human hair lace front wig is an excellent choice for a braided wig. Individual strands of hair are hand-attached to the cap's lace portion in the front. As a result, it gives you an astonishingly regular-looking hairline. Lace front wigs are a popular choice among VIPs since they come in various styles and enable you to create an infinite number of looks. We recommend lace front wigs, in particular to anyone who frequently styles their hair away from their face.
Remember that you should exercise extreme caution when styling or concentrating on your lace front wigs' human hair due to its delicate nature.
Wigs with Transparent Lace
The lace is used to give the person the appearance of a distinctive hairline. The transparent lace material is even lighter, more delicate, and more regular in appearance. There are a few transparent lace wigs that liquefy into the skin flawlessly and conceal the hairline.
Wigs with Headbands
Headband wigs are excellent protective styles for wig novices; they are quick and convenient hairstyles. There is no lace or paste. You may fling it on your head and disappear in an instant. It serves as a lifeline on busy days, wellness days, and unexpected meetings. Headbands are optional; you may wear whatever you choose.
Wig in a polyurethane style
The majority of poly wigs are thin and pigmented. These wigs are worn to enhance the wearer's natural skin tone. The skin-like substance used to produce these wigs simplifies the process of adhering them with tapes and adhesives.
Apart from these, several more popular hair wig styles include full lace wigs, custom-made wigs, monofilament hair wigs, Miraj hair skin wigs, weft cap wigs, and machine weft and hand-tied wigs.
Natural vs. Synthetic
Synthetic wigs are constructed from synthetic fibers, whereas natural wigs are constructed from human hair. In comparison to synthetic wigs, these wigs appear lifelike and have a natural feel. Natural wigs can be styled, dyed, and treated just like natural human hair; on the other hand, synthetic wigs cannot be styled.
Natural wigs are weather-sensitive and might become frizzy, sticky, or dry, depending on the conditions. Synthetic wigs remain consistent in color and style regardless of the weather or temperature.
When worn daily, real hair wigs outlast synthetic hair wigs. Natural fiber wigs last nearly a year, while synthetic fiber wigs endure for 4-6 months. Natural hair wigs cost more than synthetic hair wigs. Natural wigs may fade in the presence of light.
Sizing Wigs For Beginners
When it comes to size, our most popular selection is ordinary. Around 90% of clients choose a standard hat size with a circumference of 22". Even if you do not fall into this precise fit, ladies' braided wigs include adjustable pull straps that adjust around an inch in either direction, allowing your wig to be tightened or loosened to fit snugly on your scalp.

Putting on a wig For The First Time
To begin, if you suffer from partial hair loss or still have natural hair to cover, you'll need to prep your hair.
If you have really short hair, brush it away from your face and pin it back. You may like to spritz with hairspray to secure this, being careful not to get any on the braided wig.
If you have long hair to conceal, braid it tightly against the scalp and cross it over slightly above the nape, fixing it with clips or kirby grips at the top and bottom.
How to put on a wig cap:
- If the answer to the question "Do I need a wig cap?" is yes, place the wig cap on your natural hairline and stretch it to the back of your head.
- Now, tuck any stray hairs into the cap and attach with clips or kirby grips.
How to put on your knotless braided wig:
- At this point, you should put on your wig. Unwrap your new wig and place it in front of you with both hands, making sure the label is on the back.
- Tilt your head forward and position the wig's front hairline, then slide it on.
- Adjust your new wig until it feels natural and sits flush with your natural hairline.
- Now, using wig clips or wig tape, fix it firmly in place.
- And now you're ready to step out with style.
Remember to maintain a confident demeanor and to remain true to yourself as you launch your new style.
For beginners, choose braided wigs that are straightforward to wear and concentrate on. For you, we recommend lace front wigs and human hair. You can determine the most appropriate knotless braided wig for you based on your cap size, facial shape, hair length, hair tone, and hair surface.
