Shopping Online for Wigs

It’s Easier Than You Think!

As the various options to shop online begin to expand, many of us are walking to our computer rather than walking out the door to make purchases. It is perhaps one thing, however, to order a known household item and have it magically appear on one’s porch, and quite another to order something online which has traditionally involved a fitting room, mirrors, and ready input from your trusted shopping buddy. In the world of wig wearing and buying there are a few tried-and-true steps that can make picking out perfect new tresses from the comfort of your home easy and successful.

Don’t Stress About the Size

The vast majority of people have a head size that will fit beautifully in an average size wig, especially with the wig’s own adjustment system which typically allows for an inch or more of flexibility. If you don’t, you probably know it by now, because you’ve had a challenge with hats, glasses, etc. not fitting properly, either too big or too small. If you have a tape measure handy, you can double check your size by wrapping it snugly across your forehead, over the ears and around the nape of your neck and back to the center of forehead.

Head Measurement

20.5”-21.5” = Petite
21”-22.5” = Average
22.5”-23.5” = Large

Pick Your Hair Type

Stylability, durability, believability, affordability…these are all things to consider when deciding which kind of wig is right for you. At Envy, we have several high-quality, stylish options in a range of fiber options to choose from.

Envyhair™ is our proprietary blend of 30% human hair and 70% heat-friendly synthetic fiber. It contains built-in moisture control properties that withstand temperatures up to 356°F (180°C), meaning the wearer is able to heat set, curl, straighten, and blow dry just like 100% natural hair. It’s a great choice for those who enjoy switching up their style depending on the mood of the day and who are after the look and feel of human hair but without the hefty price tag.

Human Hair wigs are created to bring the ultimate in texture, color, health, and body. Envy’s Human Hair wigs are a real treat, as every strand has been hand selected by our team of professionals to ensure the highest quality. As with our Envyhair collection, you can style these wigs at will while enjoying the look and feel of natural hair.

Our synthetic offerings are made with only the finest 100% Kanekalon® fiber—a superior quality product renowned for holding its shade, shine, and shape. These wigs give the wearer beautiful shine and texture and possess the remarkable ability to hold the style through washings, weather, and more. If low maintenance is appealing to you, you cannot go wrong with Envy’s wigs!

Select Your Style

Picking out a new wig is a fun time to explore new lengths and styles as well as color. Allowing a little keyboard bravery may broaden your horizons and put you in a great new look! Think back to your favorite styles across the years and which ones made you feel extra confident, or pull out those family photos to find the styles that really gave you a glow. Right now, styles from across the decades are en vogue, and you can pick and choose with abandon.

When shopping through color options keep in mind your eye color and the undertones of your skin to find a shade that highlights and enhances. Need a little help? We’ve written an article all about finding the hue for you!

There you have it. Finish up with a quick check of return policies (just to make sure you’re covered in case it’s *not* the perfect fit), then hit the purchase button. When you choose Envy for your wig needs you’ve already made great strides towards finding the best look for you. All that’s left is waiting for the doorbell to ring!

The secret to a perfectly natural look is a slightly imperfect part, says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Gently reposition strands along the part line or snip a few wispy pieces using manicure scissors—AND some restraint—for a slightly messy part that looks all your own.”

“Throughout my 20-year career, women’s comfort has always been at the top of my mind,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton, whose Stretch Cap Technology hugs the perimeter while eliminating pressure points for maximum comfort.”

For first-time wig wearers, “The trick is to stay close to the color of your eyebrows,” notes Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. If not, “then consider dyeing your eyebrows to match your chosen wig color.”

“Few people know that wigs can be styled just like natural hair—and that most hairstylists are happy to give your wig a custom cut,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Trimming bangs and shaping to your exact specifications can help make your wig indecipherable from your own natural hair.”

Words of Wigdom™
“The “Grey Hair, Don’t Care” trend—which saw women embracing their grey—is stronger than ever. And not just with the over-50 crowd. “Silver is chic, edgy and looks great on almost anyone,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton, who offers nearly every EnvyHair™ and synthetic style in 3 multi-dimensional grey shades.”
