If you’re looking for a wig at a certain age it may seem challenging to sort through all the colors and styles more suited to younger customers. However, there is a large market for senior wigs that have natural hair colors and a variety of styles to meet your expectations.
Age-Related Hair Loss
Thinning hair as your age is a natural process. Though you may have gone gray many years ago, thinning can continue to happen later in life. Wearing a wig or hairpieces can cover this and help you feel confident.
Age-related illnesses may also result in hair loss. With the incidence of cancers later in life, seniors may face more episodes of chemotherapy-related hair loss. Our staff is experienced at fitting you in these events.
Hair Care for Seniors
With age, there may come events that make caring for your hair difficult. A disability may limit the range of motion or mobility. Illness may make doing hair exhausting. Keeping hair short for medical treatments may also be advantageous.
However, despite these situations, most seniors still want to be able to look their best. Having a wig that makes them feel put together and looking stylish is an essential part of self-care even in the throws of illness or disability. The simplicity of wearing a wig versus styling natural hair is an attractive prospect for those who find the styling to be challenging.
When it comes to natural-looking wigs for seniors, color options are important. While choosing a brightly colored or rich natural color is completely acceptable choices, many seniors want to match their natural look. For those who were blondes in their younger days, this may mean a pale gold wig or an all-white one. Those with darker hair may look for a salt-and-pepper style or an all silver wig.
Unlike natural gray hair, which often comes with a wiry texture, a gray, white, or silver wig will come with more sleek styling. Styling and caring for senior wigs may seem simpler than caring for naturally gray hair. Senior Wigs should simplify having a classic style.
