When choosing a wig at Wigful Thinking we are careful to help you choose the perfect wig to match your skin tone.
Find a shade that matches you
When picking a wig color you want something that will not leave you looking harsh or washed out. The first thing you need to figure out is what color family your skin tone falls into.
Warm undertones range from peach to yellow and golden. Usually, this skin tone looks great in red, peach, coral, orange, amber, gold, and yellow. You also should look great when you wear “warmer” versions of cool colors, like olive, moss, orchid, and violet-red.
If you have a warm-toned skin pick a wig color in a cool tone to complement it such as ashy blondes, cool browns, and brassy reds. Silvery blonde colors look beautiful on people with pale, warm-toned skin. If you prefer a darker shade choose a brunette in a cooler tone such as rich black-brown. Medium to dark warm-toned skin should opt for two to three shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color.
Does your skin look better against the blue and green shirts? You have cool toned skin. Pick a hair color that is rich and warm. Look for words like “warm,” “honey,” or “chocolate.” Beachy golden blonde, orangey reds, or rich brown tones are lovely with pale cool-toned skin. Medium to dark cool-toned skin is complemented by a rich, chocolate hue.
Age with beauty
Choosing the right wig color is a matter of which stage of life you are in. As we get older, lighter hair tends to be more flattering than darker shades. Lighter, warm shades provide a softer, more natural appearance to paler skin tones. Don’t be afraid to choose a gray color. It is usually the most flattering!
Keep in mind if you’re going through chemotherapy treatments, your skin may start looking paler than usual. An easy way to compensate for that is to choose a wig that is two or three shades lighter than your natural color.

Shopping for clothing can be all kinds of frustrating. You look for the right clothing department. There are four. Hopefully, you picked the right department.
Next, you search the clothing racks. Large in one brand is not the same as large in the other brands. So you look at the mediums. But the color you want is not available in that size.
You give up on shirts and move on to the jeans. There is an entire wall filled with jeans in six colors, four cuts, five rises, and twelve sizes. How do you know which combination is right for you? You feel so overwhelmed that you give up and go home empty handed.
Wig Shopping Frustrations
Clothing shopping is frustrating and overwhelming. How much more so is the experience of wig shopping! If you are experiencing hair loss and have tried to shop for a wig on your own, you know firsthand a wig is not something that can be grabbed off of the rack at a store (or ordered online) and end up looking like it was made for you. How do you decide among all the brands, sizes, colors, and styles? There are even wig terms you have never seen before!
