Updated: May 30

Wigs, wigs, wigs. When it comes to either real hair wigs or synthetic lace front wigs, there is a vast market that many people are unaware of. There are niche groups, such as cosplayers and the like, who are well-aware of their flushed need, but not everyone is as savvy as them.

However, wigs don't have to be limited to a niche hobby. They don't have to be something that only people who are ashamed of their natural hair use. And they certainly don't need to be considered as some sort of dirty little secret.

Lush wigs for women are powerful. They offer extreme freedom and versatility, and they're customisable for your needs. You can get them in a slew of colours and styles, and you can mix and match specific wigs with specific outfits including headband wigs and curly wigs!

When it comes to a wig, you can obtain the perfect look you've been chasing in your life.

That's one of the main draws of ladies wigs, but there are others out there, too. However, because of how popular wigs are becoming, there are specific things you need to be aware of before you begin your wig-buying journey. Read on to learn about the growing trend with women wearing wigs, learn about synthetic wigs, and learn about why they're exciting.

Why Use Wigs?

There are many reasons to wear wigs. In the past, people who wore wigs were assumed to have a medical condition or disorder that prevented them from having their hair. This was used as a running joke in movies and television, from women with wigs and men with toupees, but it's not like that anymore. Although there is still a need for wigs to be used in place of naturally-grown hair, in today's society, wigs can be used for whatever reason you want.

From fashion to costumes to everything in between, wigs are a great way to achieve your perfect image without ruining your natural hair with dye jobs and bleaching or by giving yourself a specific haircut that will only look good for a few weeks.

Instead, give yourself the gift of perfect hair, always with a wig. Pick a colour that matches your favourite dress, or stick with something more natural-looking to not make too many waves. Accessorise your wig to dress it up or down for the occasion, and gather many wigs for many events.

When it comes to wigs, there's no such thing as too many. So long as you have a specific use for each wig, keep on with your new hobby and see how many ways you can change up your look!

Synthetic vs Other Wig Types

When discussing wigs, there are many factors to consider. One of the most important is the material the wig is made out of. Today, we'll be discussing synthetic wigs. Keep in mind that the main type of wig is wigs made from human hair.

In the past, when it came time to choose a wig, most people would default to human hair wigs as opposed to synthetic ones. This is because human hair wigs look more natural than synthetic ones. However, that's no longer the case.

When it comes to wigs these days, it's much harder to tell the difference between human hair and synthetic hair wigs. It's obvious that human hair wigs are made from human hair, but how does that work for synthetic hair wigs?

Synthetic hair wigs are a specific type of wig that uses man-made fibres to make the wig. These man-made fibres are more durable than human hair, meaning that they tend to last longer than others and that they can also be used in more situations than with a human hair wig. One of the largest benefits of a synthetic hair wig is that they come pre-styled and that they can also hold a specific style no matter the conditions they go through. For example, if it's raining or humid, these synthetic fibres won't turn fizzy or flat, and they can even maintain curls.

The fact that they're made from man-made fibres means that they are extremely affordable. This is because they can be made in a lab with little difficulty. Because of the affordability, many people who are interested in these wigs choose to have multiple wigs in various styles for different days. If you're the type of person who likes to play with your hair and style it in many different ways, a synthetic wig is a way to go.

Although some synthetic wigs can be restyled, doing so requires the use of additional tools (such as heating tools), and it's very easy to mess up the new styling if you've never done it before.

Questions to Ask Before Buying a Wig

Although synthetic wigs aren't very expensive, there's still no point in buying one if you don't have a use for it. That's why it's important to ask yourself specific questions when it comes to choosing a wig or deciding to buy a wig.

Some of the most common questions we get about wigs are:

How much are you planning to spend?

As with many things, budget is a large factor when it comes to deciding on your wig. Are you planning to buy many wigs? Do you have specific requirements that might increase the price of what you'll be buying? Do you have an expensive month coming up soon? Knowing the answers to these questions can go a long way towards helping you select your wig(s).

Why are you looking into wigs?

There are many reasons to look into getting a wig, and the reason behind your decision can decide how many and which wig type you buy. A wig that you're using to cover hair loss will need to have extreme durability, which means that you should go for a synthetic wig. Weigh your reasons for using a wig and go from there to make your decision.

Are you looking for something high-maintenance or low-maintenance?

Wigs made from human hair require lots of time and energy to get them to look good. If you're looking for a low-maintenance option, this is not a good choice for you. If you want a low-maintenance option that will make you look good, you'll then know that it's in your best interest to get a synthetic wig.

Do you have a specific look that you like?

If you do, then synthetic wigs are the way to go. Each synthetic wig comes in a unique style, meaning that you just have to put it on and walk out the door. Rather than messing with gels, pastes, hairspray, and styling issues, you can have salon-like hair in whatever colour you want in five minutes or less.

Growing Trends/Popular Hairstyles and Colours

All of this information is good to know when it comes to learning about the growing trends in the world of wigs. As mentioned, synthetic wigs come in a variety of styles, and buying a synthetic wig is extremely easy. However, if you're trying to be aligned with the current trends, make sure you're only choosing synthetic wigs that are pre-styled in any of these specific ways.

Short Pixie

The short pixie is the sassiest cut off 2022. When it comes to real hair, cropped cut styles can be a nightmare. Assuming you get a stylist who manages to perfect the initial cut, within a few weeks, you'll find that your hair is in that awkward growth stage where there's nothing you can do for it, and you want nothing to do with it. However, with a synthetic wig, you can have your cake and eat it, too. Pixie cut wigs will allow you to show off your sassy nature without having to spend hundreds of dollars at the salon to keep your hair in check.

Beautiful Blowouts

Give yourself this beautiful style for a fraction of the price you would pay in a salon. When it comes to hot 2022 trends, blowouts are a large one. The volume-filled, flowing, and flipping layers will give you a sexy – yet soft – visage that will tell people you're fun, flirty, and ready to party. This style works well with hair of all lengths, as well.

Center Parts

Parts can make or break a hairstyle. There's the right part, the left part, zigzag parts… knowing which one will make you the talk of the town can be hard. That's why it's great news that centre parts are back in style! Finally, they're pushing aside side parts – this means that the symmetrical down-the-middle part is a good choice for your wig style. This is also another one that works with all different hair lengths, so there's no need to fuss about your preferred hair length. This style works for both elegant situations and a casual walk to the store. Versatile, beautiful, and trendy.

Curtain Bangs

Similar to the central part, curtain bangs were considered big no-no's for years. But now, they're finally back in the foremost heights of style, making them one of 2022's most "in" hairstyles. The curtain bang style is the style that has parted bangs that are pushed to the sides of the face, which will give you an effect that frames your face and shows off your features.

Side Bangs

All right, all right. Just because curtain bangs are in doesn't mean that side bangs are out! Side bangs are a classic and beautiful style that started becoming popular around the early-2000s, and it's stuck around since then. If you want a cute and simple style, the type of fringe that offers a side-swept look is easy to accessorise and dress up or down, depending on your needs. If you have a round face shape or a wide-faced shape, this is a great and flattering style for you

Defined Layers

Layering is a hairstyle that has been all the rage for decades, and that will likely continue to be all the rage for decades more. Defined layers, in particular, are going to be everywhere in 2022, meaning that this is a wig style you are not going to want to sleep on. If you want to ensure that your wig will be attention-grabbing, make sure that the shortest layer of your wig falls right below your chin. The other layers will fall from there, but you will want to have that initial layer frame your face. This is a style that works best with medium- to long-length wigs.

Reverse Ombré

If you're one of the many people who think that ombré is just a term used for colour-gradient dresses, it's your time to get with the program, especially when it comes to wigs. The style of ombré colour techniques is building upon the 2021 popularity of the same thing. This style offers an appearance that follows a colour gradient from roots to tips – but this time, it'll go from tips to roots, meaning that the darker hair will be on the bottom, and the lighter hair will be on the top.

Layered Curls

Voluptuous curls are back in style, baby! Those bouncing, playful curls are back in style, and they can also elevate your style to match your large curls. You'll find that your side profile will look more flattering, and you can finally live the curly-haired life of your dreams.

Kinky Curls

Having a kinky hairstyle in real life can be an absolute pain to deal with. But, if you want to pull off this fun and flirty style without having to constantly fight your curls into place, a wig with kinky (very tight) curls can save you lots of time, energy, and stress.

Modern Shag Cut

Of course, not all styles need to look like they've been polished to perfection. If you're the type of woman who likes to have a little chaos in your hair, then choosing a modern shag cut wig is a great idea. This is an easy and common style to find in wigs, as well, and it's also extremely easy to work with if you decide you want to go the route of a human hair wig. This style offers a fringe, layers, and a messy – yet styled and laidback – look that will show all who see it that you're well aware of modern trends.

Rapunzel Hair/Long, Straight Hair

If you've ever wanted to be like Rapunzel (minus the "being locked in a tower" part), then 2022 is your time to shine. We're not saying that you should run off and buy a wig with over 30+ feet of hair behind it, but what this does mean is that long hair is in and on-trend for this year. Choose a synthetic wig that has long hair in a style you want, and rock your inner princess.

Asymmetrical Bobs

Asymmetrical, everything is in style for 2022. From clothes to flowing hats to wigs… asymmetry is the name of the game. This is another one that has taken an old classic and spiced it up for the modern age, and the asymmetrical bob in 2022 is no different. Add a twist to this old classic with a sassy slant on either end of your cut, which automatically will make it into a fun hairstyle rather than a boring one. And, considering that asymmetrical bobs are a pain in the rear to handle with real hair (especially after the first few weeks when it stops looking so cute), a synthetic wig that will look perfect every time you use it is the best way to have this perfect hairstyle.


Before you run screaming into the hills, it's okay! Surprisingly, mullets are finally beginning to fight against their terrible stigma and reputation. Also, keep in mind that we're not talking about the same mullets that your parents wore – no, in recent years, mullets have received an update that makes them part of the 2022 style. Make a statement if you're feeling adventurous – you're confident in your style, and you want the world to know it, too! You can go for a longer mullet look, like the cone Cardi B sported at the AMAs in 2021, or stick with a shorter one like Miley Cyrus frequently shows off.

Contrasting Roots

Finally! The time has come when you don't have to completely damage your hair through extensive dying, colouring, bleaching, and dying treatments. Even the most protective person has found that their hair will turn brittle and weak the more they dye it – which is why exploring your loved for dyed hair is a great thing you can do when it comes to synthetic wigs! This way, you can turn your hair any colour without wearing down your hair's health. More specifically, coloured roots are here to play in 2022. Choose to go natural with blond, black, or brown roots, or decide that you're going to be attention-grabbing with a less natural colour


If you have a preferred style that didn't make it onto this list, that's all right. The goal of using a wig – synthetic or otherwise – is to make it so that you feel comfortable in your skin and that you're able to express the beautiful person you are on the inside, outside.
