I never really wore wigs until earlier this year, even though I’ve been natural for quite a few years. I always felt like they didn’t look right on me, until one day I was late for work and I had literally no choice but to throw on a straight wig that I had in my closet from Halloween.
I put a headband on, because the part looked too unnatural for me. Ever since then, I did some research, learned how to pluck the part, and have spent an embarrassing amount of money on wigs! However, as of late, I’ve started to be a bit more resourceful, and now even though my wig collection has almost doubled, I am able to do it on a budget, and here’s how:
1. Buy Synthetic or Blends
The first wig that I wore was a synthetic wig. It cost me less than 20 bucks, and looked just like human hair. Even though I have stepped my wig game up, I still buy synthetic wigs. Often times, you can find great looking synthetic or blend (human and synthetic hair) wigs online for 12 or 15 bucks, and free shipping!
2. Coupon Codes
If you’re dying to have a human hair wig, then I suggest after you do your research on which one and which company to buy from, be patient and wait for a coupon code. Many times during anniversary sales, or just random Tuesday’s companies will have a sale on their wigs and that is the time to buy. Why not save some extra money on something you were going to buy anyway?
3. Buy Used
I was a bit leary of buying a used wig, but after I bought my first one, I found out that the transaction and whole process was seamless, and the wig was in great quality! Of course, you have to make sure you’re buying from a reputable person, but it definitely is the route to go if you want a high quality wig, but don’t want to pay full price for one.
