Why Choose a Shoulder Length Wig?
Choosing a wig is a big decision. Do you want a look that’s long and dramatic? Something short and flirty that fits into your routine with ease? A shoulder length wig can offer the best of both worlds, providing a breezy, natural-looking style with exceptional versatility. Medium length wigs allow for more coverage than shorter styles, but aren’t as heavy as longer options. Whether you’re looking for fashion-forward bangs, lots of layers, voluminous curls, or dimensional highlights, you’ll be able to find a shoulder length wig that you can wear with confidence.
Which Medium Length Wig Is the Most Flattering?
Shoulder length haircuts are undoubtedly among the most popular styles for women—and for good reason! Medium length cuts are adaptable and flattering for almost everyone; start with your face shape to find the specific look that’s best for you. Shoulder length styles are great for square faces, especially when they include waves or wispy layers to soften any harsh angles. Medium length hair is also perfect for balancing the narrow chin of a heart-shaped face. For those with oval or diamond face shapes, almost any style is flattering—so feel free to experiment with new shoulder length looks when choosing a wig!

Washing & Styling Your Wig
A great wig can be a big investment, and it’s sure to become an essential part of your daily routine. That means you’ll want the wig you love to last as long as possible. In general, the lifespan of a wig is around six months with regular wear; following the proper care guidelines will ensure that your wig makes it to that milestone while looking fantastic.
Wig care differs based on whether you choose synthetic or natural hair. Synthetic wigs should be gently washed using specially designed products every 6 to 8 wears. Human hair wigs are even more delicate; we’ve gathered our best washing tips for human hair here. To extend the life of your wig, you can also choose to wear it with a wig cap, which limits exposure to the natural oils of the scalp. Whether you choose natural or synthetic hair, resist the temptation to dye your wig if you want to change up your look; colorants can cause irreparable damage.
