We can shop from the comfort of our home, from our smartphones while on the go, and pretty much any time of day. The ease of purchasing online and various shipping options from large sites like Amazon, has brought much simplicity to shopping. Receiving a delivery on a Sunday, makes Amazon a top choice for thousands of shoppers.
Online shopping comes with a large degree of uncertainty for many. Especially for certain items. Wigs, for one, are one of those items that have pros and cons to purchasing online. Finding a wig store that is reliable is important. One that has trustworthy wig specialists on staff who produce what they advertise. Delayed shipping, no refund policy, not being able to tangibly get a feel for the product before purchase, inaccurate measurements,and difficulty contacting customer service with questions that you might have are the immediate cons that come to mind. Companies who have a physical location as well as online purchasing available tend to be the more reliable choice. Wig stores who invest heavily in building their website and maintaining a storefront are passionate about what they do like Magic Hair Company. These are the companies to consider when buying online.
Selecting a wig online versus in store
When buying a wig, the proper fit plays a large role in how well the wig will lay. You want to get measured and receive guidance from a wig specialist. Choosing the correct size, color, and type of wig is something a trusted wig specialist can easily help you with. Measuring tools used online may or may not be accurate. Getting measured by a professional is recommended if you do choose to purchase online. Knowing your measurements before you buy will alleviate the hassles of returning a wig unit that poorly fits. If you take your own measurements, then be sure to measure not just the circumference, but from front to nape, ear to ear, and along the nape of your neck.
How to take wig measurements?
Ear to ear: measure from hairline directly above the left ear across the top of your head to the hairline directly above the right ear.
Nape of neck: measure the width of your hairline across the nape of the neck.
Front to nape: Measure from hairline at the center of the forehead straight back over the crown to center of hairline at nape of neck.
When choosing to visit a wig store, the wig specialist will assist you with measuring and selecting the proper size wig cap. Visiting a wig boutique will alleviate most of the work for you. The biggest advantage of shopping inside the store is being able to build a rapport with the highly skilled wig specialists. They will guide you when it comes to the various types of lace, human hair textures, colors of lace ( or even tint the lace to match your scalp). They are also available to advise you of products that will enhance and extend the shelf life of the wig. Once a rapport has been established, subscribing to the stores’ newsletter is a great way to stay in the loop on deals, promotions, and giveaways. Purchasing online from that store now won’t be met with any apprehension. That's the beauty of meeting your wig specialist, you get to build a trusting relationship. Buying from a reliable, trusted source makes all the difference. Scams are in abundance. Customer service online isn’t always the best. It is rare that you will receive any follow up.
I think we have all experienced this at some point. We’ve been excited to buy something that we’ve been eyeing for some time. We finally get it and it doesn’t meet our expectations. Or, we realize that we overpaid. When buying online it’s difficult and almost impossible to gauge the quality of the hair. False advertisement does happen. Remy, Brazilian, Peruvian, Human Hair they all say, but then it’s blended and NOT 100% once it arrives to you. When it comes to a wig that you plan to keep for a few years, you want to know exactly what you’re getting. More importantly, you want to get exactly what you paid for. Human hair full lace wigs will not disappoint. They are high quality and last for years. There are no surprises if you are buying in store. You get to shake, feel, and manipulate the samples and ready to buy wigs. Buying in store ultimately saves time and money.
Payment options and shipping

Oftentimes the shipping fees are more than what we want to pay. Not to mention the estimated delivery window is longer than we’d like. Commonly, you pay upfront for your wig online, but the seller doesn't take any responsibility for shipping delays once you pay for shipping. Online wig companies encourage you to pay extra for “buyer protection” which will allow you to be refunded. However, you must file a claim in order to receive any refund. This process may take another few weeks.
As stated previously, you save time and money with an in store purchase. No shipping costs, No lengthy wait time. You will also have more payment options in store versus online. Quad pay and in store financing are available to clients who choose to shop in store.
