Feel like you’re ready to update your look?
Want to surprise your friends for a night at an awesome party or spice things up with your partner?
Perhaps you’re even suffering from an illness that’s caused you to lose some or all your hair.
Whatever the reason, the answer is clear: you’re in need of some high-quality wigs.
If you’ve never gone wig shopping before, it can be a tricky thing to figure out.
Don’t sweat it.
Instead, rely on this post to help to get you through it.
In it, we’re spilling all our secrets on what to look for in everyday wigs, natural wigs, and a whole lot more. Read on to learn what you should look for in a quality wig supplier.
1. Read Online Reviews
If you’re like roughly 90% of shoppers, chances are that you read online reviews and testimonials about a product or service before you decide to commit to it.
The same rules should apply when you’re on the hunt for high-quality wigs.
Trust us when we tell you that unsatisfied past customers are more than happy to leave reviews on Google My Business, Yelp, or even to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
When you’re combing through those reviews (no pun intended) make sure to see how the company has responded to criticism. Do they get defensive and argue with customers, or are they committed to finding out what went wrong and fixing it?
If it’s the former, move on.
2. Don’t Shop by Price
We know that it’s tempting to buy only affordable wigs.
We also know that it’s often as tempting to blow through your entire paycheck on a wig that’s way out of your price range.
However, it’s important to understand that the price doesn’t say as much about whether you’ll end up with high-quality wigs as you might expect.
Remember, as wig-making has improved and techniques once reserved for the top stylists have become more widely available, expensive doesn’t always mean better.
Unlike your favorite celebrities, you don’t need to spend $8,000 on a wig to have it look believable.
3. Ask your Stylist
As wigs continue to rise in popularity, the chances are good that even your favorite hair stylist might have a tip or two about where to find the best human hair wigs.
Remember that many extension companies also make wigs.
So, if you know that your stylist works with extensions, they may have a great wig connection. Maybe they’ll even be able to get you a discount!
Additionally, talking with your stylist about wigs can help you to understand which styles will work for you. Find out if your regular stylist has experience in cutting and blow drying wigs.
4. Check out Their Website
The true mark of a supplier that sells high-quality wigs?
The overall look and ease of navigation of their website.
A good wig supplier website will show you a wide variety of different wigs that are available. You’ll be able to choose from countless lengths, types of hair, wig styles, and even size and colors to go with any outfit.
The website should contain a blog where the supplier is able to prove their expertise. They can write posts about how to wear a wig, update you on proper methods of wig care, and even offer you awesome wig styling tips.

5. Familiarize Yourself with Their Return Policy
Before you buy natural wigs online or in-store, ask about the return policy that’s associated with them.
You need to figure out if they come with any kind of a warranty and make sure that, when you get a receipt, it has the date of purchase on it.
Additionally, understand how often you can come back to have the wig refurbished or trimmed/restyled.
This is all a normal part of wig care — so make sure you’re getting what you’re entitled to.
6. Understand Wig Care
Especially if you’re in the market for everyday wigs, it’s important that you know how to take the proper care of your investment.
If you’re interested in human hair wigs, remember that it’s safe to use heat styling tools on them. You can cut and style them in whatever way you like.
However, if you get a synthetic wig, you won’t be able to restyle it. You’ll need to use a special wig shampoo, since they’re not made from human hair. However, they dry in about 7 hours, while natural wigs take about 24 complete hours to dry.
You should expect a more expensive and high-quality wig to be with you for about three to five years. More affordable wigs will likely only last you about a year.
To extend the life of your wig, use high-quality care products and try to keep washing to a minimum.
