Even if you don’t need a wig you can still have one and wear it for a special occasion or a night out when you want to add some extra glamour to your outfit. There are several wig options to choose from in the Christie Brinkley collection, but the first thing you’ll want to do is figure out which wig color is right for you, your style and your skin tone.
Wig Materials and Coloring
The first thing you’ll want to do is determine whether or not you want to get a wig made from synthetic hair or human hair. While wigs made from human hair are more expensive, they also look more natural than synthetic wigs. A wig made with real human hair is usually lighter than a synthetic wig, which is important to keep in mind while you’re shopping.
Your skin tone will determine how well a wig works on you. Women with dark, golden or olive skin will look best in wigs and Christie Brinkley extensions that are dark brown, golden brown, warm auburn and shades of gold. You can avoid the risk of your complexion looking wan by steering clear of jet black wigs. If you have fair skin, dark brown skin or light-colored eyes, look for wigs that are blonde, black and brown. Women with cool skin tones can also get away with wearing wig colors that are more extreme, such as fire engine red, purple and burgundy.
If you’re wearing a wig for the first time, it’s best that you stick with colors and wigs that are as close to your current color and style. This way you can get used to wearing a wig and how you look with one. If you’re ever unsure of which color you should select, a good option is to choose something from the Christie Brinkley collection that’s slightly lighter than your current hair color since darker toned colors can be a bit too much for your face. You’ll also want to make sure that you do plenty of research on the different kinds of wig materials so that you’ll be able to find the perfect choice for you and your personal needs.
Getting Measured for Your Wig
You’ll need to know your wig size before you go shopping. In order to get accurate measurements, you’ll want to measure the circumference of your head, the distance between the back and the front of your head and the distance between your ears. For the circumference, get a measuring tape and measure from your front hairline, adjusting along the line of hair right above your ear to the nape of your neck, right about at your opposite ear and ending at your front hairline.
When doing the ear-to-ear measurement, measure from where your hairline ends to the top tip of one ear, over the top of your head to the same point on the opposite ear. Lastly, measure from the front of your hairline over the top of your head to your back hairline.
To keep from looking like it’s obvious that you’re wearing a wig and to look your best in a wig, always make sure that you’re wearing a complementary color and the right size.
