If you’re looking for information on short wigs then you’ve come to the right place.
Short hair wigs are great for those who are used to having short hair, or used to have short hair before they lost it.
We’re primarily looking at lengths above the chin
Here at Peruke, we don’t try to mandate who should wear what as that comes down to personal choice; however we do know a thing or two about complementary styles.
You might have noticed that wigs aimed at women over the age of 60 tend to be cropped close to the face and if you like this look that’s fine, but there are alternatives.
Shorter styles are also easier to manage for children and can be a really chic look for women too, it’s important to remember that style will prevail over length.
Sleek little bob cuts with off centre fringes are a great alternative to tiny cropped hairstyles. As are sixties' style bobs.
Fringes (or bangs) soften the face but short styled wigs without fringes/bangs that have off centre partings also achieve the same effects.
If you feel brave enough you can always buy a longer length of wig and have it razor cut to a style that suits you most – there’s no reason to think that a ready-made wig is the only way to go.
The faces most suited short hairstyles are oblong and oval faces.
It's important to experiment and see what you feel most comfortable with.
Round, heart and square faces can wear short lenghts that suit the face shape by going for hair that ends just beneath the chin, adding height/volume at the crown and wearing off centre partings.
There you have it, the guide to short wigs in a nutshell!
