What are hottest Halloween wigs this season?
Traditional costume wigs Pirate Water Wave Wig Wigs, Devil Wigs, Rocker Wigs, Bumble Bee Wigs, Raggedy Ann Wig or Little Mermaid Wig are very popular.
With Pirate of the Caribbean movie released this year pirate costumes and wigs are hot. And they are not all that expensive.
Renaissance costumes are a new trend. A nice period dress is not only an imaginative costume, but it would be very flattering to your appearance. For that type of costume you would need a long wig with elaborated curls.
Mermaid costume and wig also hot this year and are very flattering for most faces. Long flowing hair blond or light green with seaweeds woven in it looks stunning. There is no special rule to what mermaid wig should look like; it can be straight or wavy, so you can select one that works best with your face. The only requirements that mermaid hair should be very long.
Wigs are usually made from real human hair or from synthetic material. Since looking natural is not the goal with Halloween wigs, most of them are made from synthetic fabric. Sometimes with addition of glitter and metallic. However, you should know that not all synthetic wig materials are the same. Cheapest costume wigs look obviously plastic and they don’t last long. If you want a wig that looks decent, it should be made of quality fabric, similar to what fashion wigs are actually made from. This type of costume wig will cost you more, but the effect is usually worth the price.
Where to buy a Halloween wig?
Local costume shops are one option, but the selection is usually not impressive, so to find a perfect wig you will have to visit several shops. It is much more convenient to buy your Halloween costume wig online. Here you have two options – buying your costume wig from an online wig store or internet costume store. Costume shops are a better option, because they usually offer a bigger selection of wigs. Buying your Halloween wig online would also be cheaper, than from an ordinary store.
However, ordering your wig online you have to be careful. Not every company that has a web site is trustworthy. So how can you decide if the shop is worth dealing with, if all you can see is their web site? Here are some tips:
1. Does the company have a physical address and a phone number? If they don’t, or you can’t find their contact details it is the first warning sign.
2. What is the shipping charge? Some companies sell very cheap wigs, but the shipping cost is high, so it adds to the price
3. How soon will they ship your costume wig and when will it arrive? The last thing you want is to receive your wig after the Halloween
4. What is the return and exchange policy? Due to a seasonal nature of Halloween wigs, most companies provide no returns on them, however exchange should be possible and with a minimum hassle.
The easiest way to get answers to all these questions is to call the store and talk to their customer service representative.
And the most important advice, don’t limit yourself to only one online costume store. Visit several web sites; compare wig styles and prices until you find your perfect Halloween wig
