Whether you want to take a break from damaging styling to help your natural hair grow out, you choose not to show your natural hair in public or you're losing your natural locks and still want a beautiful head of hair to style, wearing a wig is a great way to feel beautiful and make a hairstyle statement. But getting out of the house to try on wigs isn't always easy. Fortunately, online wig shops simplify the process of finding a great new 'do that suits you. Ready to get started? Check out these top online wig stores that can help you find exactly what you're looking for, along with some of the thoughtful (and helpful) extras that make wearing your wig easier.

Paula Young

Paula Young is an online wig store with styles that are what's considered more feminine. In addition to wigs, this shop sells wiglets, which are smaller wigs meant to supplement your existing hair, and hairpieces. You can shop by item or brand or take advantage of the site's "Wig Guide," which helps you find the right hairpiece by the size you need, based on the color you want or by the style that best suits your face shape.

The guide shows you how to measure your head to ensure you get the right size wig and how to find the right color, whether you're looking for something close to your own color, or you want to try something totally new. Once you've narrowed down your choices, you'll see a collection of wigs on live models. You can also filter your searches by price, brand, color, size, fiber and hair type.
