Finding Your Color
Decisions, decisions, decisions. Are you always having trouble finding that perfect wig? We can help! When choosing your perfect wig, there are many factors to consider. By following these simple tips, you’ll pick the best one for your needs.
The first step to achieving your desired look (be it cosplay, fashion, or just for fun) is picking the color that works best with your vision. Start with your character’s hue, or basic color on a color wheel, such as red or green. Next, think about the tone or how bright and saturated the color is. To understand this, visualize for a moment a character like Pearl from Steven Universe.
Peach Blonde (bottom) would be the better choice compared to Princess Pink (top), which doesn’t have the orange hue that Pearl has.
Another factor to consider while choosing the right color is knowing which hues work best with your skin tone. If you are a warm skin tone, you’ll want to choose warmer versions of the same color.
For example, someone with a warm skin tone should choose Dark Plum Purple, a red based purple, over Royal Purple, a blue based purple.
In the same vein, Royal Purple would complement a cool toned person nicely.
