We all have problems choosing a hairstyle to suit us, and the full range of wigs available on the market often makes that choice even more daunting. Most wig suppliers do not accept returns on hairs that have been worn/used, making the selection of carpet even more critical.
How do you, as a TS or TV girl, decide what style will suit and feminize your face?
high quality wigs can dramatically change your appearance, face shape and look. It would help if you took your time getting to know your face shape and choosing the right style for your face. By selecting the correct wig to hide certain parts of your face you can draw the eye to your more attractive features.
Choosing a Style
Face Framing or forward style wigs will go a long way to help you achieve a more feminine look while being easy to care for and style.
Many crossdressers, trans people and transvestites may have a prominent bone above the eye sockets or brow. To disguise this masculine feature, it is best to go for a style with a fringe that covers the area and draws the eye down toward the lower part of the face. Also, choose a quality wigs online with more volume on the crown to balance off a broader and more extensive look.
Wider or square faces can be altered in appearance by bringing styles closer to the actual look and, as long as the ends are soft the effect can be, and face-framing hairstyle with soft fringe and razor cut ends. Any face framing wig with layers that feather around the jaw is an excellent choice of carpet for transvestites, transsexuals, transgendered or crossdressers who want to feel more confident about their hairstyle when out and about. The sides and fringe shape the face and mask many masculine features such as broad jawline or prominent brow.
Choosing a color
Most TS/TV girls make the mistake of selecting a color that they like rather than what would suit their skin tone. For as natural a look as possible to “pass,” stick to as close to your natural color as possible. Going for an outrageous color or an overly luxurious or glamorous wig will only draw unwanted attention to yourself.
Have a search on the internet for girls who have similar coloring and skin tone to you and see what colors suit them.
If you have naturally mid brown- dark brown/black eyes and eyebrows, stick to darker wig colors with highlights or deep red tones.
If you have blonde to light brown natural hair color and eyebrows, stick to the lighter colors on the spectrum or possibly ginger colors.
