Are there Different Types of Human Hair Wigs?

So we've already established that human hair wigs are the best option, particularly when suffering from hair loss; but there are still a number of things to consider when choosing your human hair wig. Here are some of the most important differences in human hair wigs to understand when choosing the right wig for you.

Types of Hair used in Human Hair Wigs

There are typically four basic types of hair used in human hair wigs: Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and European. Human hair wigs are predominantly made from Asian hair. Chinese hair has a thicker denier (unit of fineness) which results in the hair being extremely straight; due to this resistance, these human hair wigs may be harder to style. Indonesian hair is more readily available and is therefore less costly - it can often be found in ethnic style wigs. Indian hair has thinner denier, somewhat similar to European hair but with a bit more texture. European human hair wigs are the most sought after due to the fine denier for European hair. However it is in increasingly limited supply in the marketplace, therefore it is more expensive. Beware of imposters with suspiciously low-priced "European Human Hair Wigs'.

European Human Hair Wigs

Here at Transitions Hair, our most sought after human hair wigs are made from European Hair because of their unparalleled quality and integrity; allowing our clients to style them as you would your own hair (blow dry, hot roller, hair straightener, etc), giving you complete control over your look and style. The result - silky, beautiful, soft hair that falls naturally, feels like real hair and best of all, is undetectable.

Custom-made and Pre-designed Human Hair Wigs

The origin of the hair is not the only factor, however; you also need to decide whether you want a custom-made or a pre-designed human hair wig. Custom-made wigs involve creating a head mould of the precise curvature of your scalp in order to create a wig that fits you perfectly. Hair type, hair colour, and lifestyle are all taken into consideration when creating your new hair.

Our pre-designed human hair wigs are our most popular option as they allow you to have the hair you want instantly. These human hair wigs can be customised to complement your unique face shape, facial features, and head size, giving you the most natural result possible. Pre-designed human hair wigs are available in five different sizes (XXS to L), various hair lengths and a range of beautiful colours to create the natural look of a full head of hair.
