Wig Guide for Oval Faces

oval_1The oval face is longer than it is wide, and the jaw is narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval face is so proportional–with no individual feature dominating–just about any cut, length, texture, or style will look very nice. Famous oval faces include Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Aniston, and Cindy Crawford.

Lucky you! If you have an oval face, you can wear just about any style. Short, mid-length, and long wigs will look good on you, as will any hair type–straight, curly, or wavy wigs.

Some wigs to consider include the Ainsley Wig by Paula Young®, a lovely long wig with wavy layers; the Alex WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a mid-length layered look with side-swept bangs; and the Daisy WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a short, updated shag with fun, piecey layers throughout.

Wig Guide for Heart Faces

heart_1The heart face has a narrow chin and a wide forehead. Look for chin-length or longer styles with side parts and swept-forward layers around the upper face. Styles with fullness and volume from the ears to the jaw are best for you because they make the chin appear wider and balance the facial proportions. You should avoid styles that add a lot of volume on top, and you should also avoid styles with short, piecey layers. Famous heart faces include Michelle Pfeiffer, Claudia Schiffer, and Ashley Judd.

If you have a heart face, pageboy or bob styles look great on you. In addition, consider mid-length and long styles that have volume around the chin.

Some wigs to consider include the Chantal WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a shoulder-length, feathery pageboy style; the Gayle Wig by Paula Young®, a lovely long wig with wavy layers; and the Phoebe WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a mid-length style with wavy layers.

Wig Guide for Round Faces

round_1The round face has a rounded chin, a wide hairline, and fullness in the cheeks. To accentuate your features and to lengthen your face, add volume on top but avoid volume on the sides. Look for styles that have height or long, wispy side layers to make the cheeks appear narrower. Famous round faces include Ingrid Bergman, Mariska Hargitay, and Kelly Clarkson.

If you have a round face, consider a style that has volume on the top—NOT the sides—to lengthen the look of your face. Also consider mid-length and long wigs with wispy, close side layers to lengthen your profile and to narrow your cheeks.

Some wigs to consider include the Brittany Wig by Paula Young®, a long wig with layers of relaxed spiral curls; the Elizabeth WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a short style with volume and flirty flips up top; and the Beth Wig by Paula Young®, a mid-length shag with wispy side layers and side-swept bangs.

Breast Cancer Survivor Blog Series: Medical Hair Loss

Writer, business woman, passionate traveler, and breast cancer survivor, Melanie Young is an advocate for the empowerment of women through education, peer support and mentoring… and now she’s offering her words of wisdom to Paula Young customers via a 10-part blog series.

This Q&A interview-style blogs series offers insight on Melanie, her book –
– and her battle with breast cancer.

I hope you enjoy the sixth installment of this series which touches upon handling hair loss.

PAULA: How did you handle your own medical hair loss?

MELANIE: Like many women facing cancer, one of the first questions is “Am I going to lose my hair?” I was no different. In my book I talk about how I prepared for my hair loss and what it feels like to lose your hair (tingly scalp). I also discuss scalp care and how to deal with the loss of eyebrows and lashes, another side effect no one tells you about.

I cut my hair to chin length before I began chemo. I was warned my hair would start to “release” after the second round. It started slowly, like snow falling around my shoulders, and then messy chunks started coming out in my hair brush. The release became messy and a bit inconvenient – hair was flying around my head during business meetings. I asked my husband to shave my head.

The good news is that hair grows back quickly and six weeks after my last chemo treatment I was already sprouting peach fuzz, then a wiry kind of hair that my beautician called “stick hair.” For about a year my hair was curly. It’s called “chemo curl” and it’s common. Now my hair is stick straight again. My hair grew back quite full, though some survivors experience thinning post cancer hair and continue to rely on hairpieces.

Quick & Easy Wig Styling Tips

For Curly Wigs:
Give the wig a good shake, then gently style the curls with your fingers or a pick comb – not a brush. We suggest the Styling Brush and Pick Comb to go with your curly wig.

For Wavy Wigs:

Brush lightly using short, lifting strokes – just enough to add volume and create body. We suggest using the 5-Pc. Styling Comb and Brush Set with your favorite wavy wig.

For Straight Wigs:

Brush with long, even strokes for a smooth look. Start at the ends and work your way to the roots. We suggest the Static-Free Brush to pair with your straight wig.

For Short Wigs:

Many wig styles, especially shorter ones, need only a good shake and they’re ready to wear. We suggest the Wig Brush for short wigs.

An Important Note About Fiber & Heat:

Human hair wigs can take the heat, but synthetic wigs can’t, so be careful! Never expose a synthetic style to excessive heat (even standing in front of an open oven, or over a hot stove), as this will damage the fibers. Curling irons, flat irons, hot rollers, hair dryers and other heat styling tools should only be used on 100% human hair styles or a heat-friendly fiber blend like VersaFiber® or FiberFusion®.
