How to choose the right wig for your face (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)
Are you sure you have the appropriate wig style to suit the shape of your face?
T-girls, wigs and hairstyles… what can I say? It’s almost impossible to find a novice T-girl whose first desire is not to buy that long haired, sexily styled wig from Suddenly Fem’s collection. Perhaps it’s been a long held dream or fantasy to parade around with long hair, flicking it behind your shoulders, seductively easing it away from your eyes, and generally just enjoying the sensation of feeling and looking like a young woman.
But this look is not for everyone, and sometimes our choice of wigs gives us away as male or at the very least doesn’t flatter us at all.
Your skin tone, your natural coloring, plus, importantly, the shape of your face all are factors to be considered. You don’t need me to tell you that men’s faces are quite different than women’s, and whilst there are 6/7 recognized different types of faces, many men tend to have only 2/3 of these, mainly square or oblong faces
But, as a starter, well before choosing a wig style, do the following to work out what type of face you have; measure:
- Your face across the top of your cheekbones
- Across your jawline from the widest point to the widest point
- Across your forehead at the widest point (usually somewhere about halfway
- between your hairline and eyebrows)
- From the tip of your hairline to the bottom of your chin
Now have a read of the following and see which face is the most similar to yours, and which wig you should consider to purchase from the Suddenly Fem collection – plus, importantly, which wig style you should avoid:
Square shaped faces are as about as wide as they are long , and have a strong, square jaw line and usually an equally square hairline.
Avoid long straight styles that accentuate a square jawbone, straight fringes or center partings, or a straight bob ending at the jawline.
Oblong faces are longer than they are wide and are often long and slender, about the same width at forehead and just below cheekbones.
The wig style you choose should add width to your face to help minimize its vertical length. Preferred wig styles are short to medium in length crossdress, with longer top layers such as wedges and graduated bob cuts.
Long haired wigs should be avoided as they will make your face appear even longer.
The Diamond shaped face is widest at the cheekbones, with a narrow forehead and jawline each of approximately equal width—in some ways a cross between heart and a dramatic oval shape!
Almost all hairstyles work with a diamond shaped face, so you should experiment. If you have a dramatic diamond shape, leave weight in the back nape area and this will achieve a balance between your cheekbones and relatively delicate chin line trans.
Wearing a wig with height on top or volume on the sides is to be avoided. Whilst some fringe cover can hide a narrow forehead try not to wear too much hair on your face, thereby hiding your best features.
People with a heart shaped face have a large and wide forehead, high cheek bones, sometimes a widow’s peak hairline, and a narrow “v-shaped” chin. Look for a wig that allows you to bring some hair across your face to soften its width. In addition, keep the hairstyle closer to the head near the eyes and fuller around the jaw.
Styles with too much height at the crown should be avoided otherwise the face will look longer.
With an oval shaped face the length is, typically, equal to one-and-a-half times the width, is slightly narrower at the jawline than at the temples, and the hairline is often gently rounded.
This type of face is well proportioned and allows for the most versatility in wig choices and, in fact, most wig styles whether short or long, straight or wavy are suitable.
Styles that cover up your “perfect” features such as heavy fringes, or too forward-directed crossdress styles should be avoided.
The round shaped face is as wide as it is long, and full-looking with a round chin and hairline; the widest part of the face is through the cheekbones.
Good choices are wigs with a fullness and height at the crown, but not at the ears; off-center partings help reduce the face’s roundness. sissy Wigs with a short, swept-back hair style or with a style longer than chin length should be considered.
It’s best to avoid chin length hair and center partings as these tend to accentuate roundness.
The cheekbones and jaw line of a pear shaped essentially broaden to showcase a wider faced look, and the face features a distinctly narrow forehead, with a rounded chin. It’s best to look for wigs that will add volume above the jaw line as layers can create fullness on the upper half of the face.
Hair on the sides of your head and at the nape are best set and combed in a pattern close to the head since any style too voluminous will add weight to the bottom of the face. However, don’t be afraid to show your crossdressing forehead as this will draw attention upward and away from the jaw line. Also, if you have bangs, angle them slightly and tuck them behind the ears to draw attention upward.
