If you wear a wig, you’ve probably struggled with finding one that’s suitable for work. Will it stay on? Will I be too hot all day? Will people ask questions or comment on it? But there’s no reason why you can’t wear a wig in the workplace and look and feel confident and amazing.
Here are my top tips on how to rock your wig at work.
What is the best wig to wear for work?
That depends. You have to consider things like the dress code and what your job involves day to day. For example, if you work in a professional office, you might not want to wear your statement ‘look at me’ fuchsia wig and if your job is active and makes you sweat, you won’t want to wear your heaviest human hair wig.
You also need to think about the type of wig you go for. For example a frontal wig looks the most natural, but they do take longer to fit so if you know you’re short of time in the morning, or you just want to spend a little longer in bed, maybe for a closure wig instead. They are a lot easier and quicker to fit.
What’s the best way to keep it secure during the day?
If you’re going to be wearing a wig for work, you don’t want to have to worry about it slipping, so you need a way to keep it secure that also protects your natural hair underneath. You might not want to use glue, so read our blog on the best alternative ways to keep your wig safe and secure at work.
Dealing with the inevitable questions
You’ve heard them all before, are you wearing a wig? What does it feel like? Does it feel really hot to wear? It’s inevitable that people are going to ask questions.
It’s up to you how you answer them really. People might just be curious, but you don’t have to talk about it if you don’t want to as it’s a really personal thing.
If someone asks if you’re wearing a wig you can just say yes and leave it at that. You don’t need to go into the why if you don’t want to.
People wear wigs for all sorts of reasons from making a fashion statement to making them feel more confident when they’re recovering from an illness. Whatever it is, rock your wig, no matter where you are and don’t worry about what other people say or think. It’s your journey and your choice.
