Selecting Women's Wigs If you are choosing a wig for women, you should take care to select the style that is compatible with your facial shape. Some wigs are designed to look like facial hair but others aren't as attractive. A tape measure used to measure the length of the hair you have is great idea. A wig with a round part can cause your facial appearance to appear larger than it really is. Also, a shorter or cropped bob can make your ears appear smaller.
