Selecting Women's Wigs If you are choosing a wig for women, you should be careful to choose the style that is compatible with your face shape. Most wigs designed for women have a face-like shape however, some aren't so flattering. Utilizing a tape measure to determine the length of your hair can be a great idea. A wig with a round part will create the appearance of your face to be larger than it actually is. A shorter hairstyle that is cropped will make your ears look smaller.
