Need help with color?

TWC® has a practicing cosmetologist / hair color specialist on the design team. Each season we review the latest trends in hair color and discuss how clients are advised to choose their newest, most flattering color. Here are a few tips to take into consideration when selecting your wig color:

✓ Avoid going more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color when choosing a wig. Going too light or too dark will be dramatic, but might not be the best result for you.

✓ If you want to be bold, consider making gradual changes by going lighter or darker a little at a time. The great advantage of wearing wigs is that you can easily get to the color you want without chemically damaging your hair.

✓ When going blonde, consider what color your hair was when you were a child. If you were blonde when you were a little girl, chances are blonde will also work for you as an adult. Go a little darker than the shade you used to be, in order to look best with your current skin tone.

✓ Golden highlights brighten your complexion and make you look more youthful.

✓ If your hair is auburn, choose copper highlights. Natural brunettes look best with caramel, and blondes look best with honey tones. Synthetic wig fibers and human hair products are pre-blended with these natural looking highlights. Wearing wigs enables you to achieve salon colors much easier and less costly than salon color applications on your natural hair.
Each color is designed with a blend of fiber shades to provide a rich, natural-looking color you’ll be proud to call your own. We recommend you choose a shade that looks great with your skin tone and eye color. For the most natural look, choose a color that’s close to your own or slightly lighter. As we age, our skin tone tends to look a little washed out, but choosing the right hair color can help us look younger.

When ordering on our website, thewigcompany.com, the proper color guide will appear on each product page for every wig or hair attachment item you view. First select your size, then you will view a display of small ‘thumbnail’ icons for each available color. These color icons are sorted in categories, blonde, brunette, etc.

Simply click one at a time on any color you desire and it will appear in a larger view. When you click on the larger view window, the color window will enlarge again. This will give you a very adequate viewing image of each color that interests you. Finally, click on the decided color icon, confirm the quantity and now you are ready to “ADD TO SHOPPING BAG”.
