T-girls, wigs and hairstyles… what can I say? It’s almost impossible to find a novice T-girl whose first desire is not to buy that long haired, sexily styled wig from Suddenly Fem’s collection. Perhaps it’s been a long held dream or fantasy to parade around with long hair, flicking it behind your shoulders, seductively easing it away from your eyes, and generally just enjoying the sensation of feeling and looking like a young woman.
But this look is not for everyone, and sometimes our choice of wigs gives us away as male or at the very least doesn’t flatter us at all. If your goal is to “pass” or blend in whilst out and about, a considerable amount of thought needs to be given to the type of wig or hairpiece you choose.
Your skin tone, your natural coloring, plus, importantly, the shape of your face all are factors to be considered. You don’t need me to tell you that men’s faces are quite different than women’s, and whilst there are 6/7 recognized different types of faces, many men tend to have only 2/3 of these, mainly square or oblong faces (see more below).
But, as a starter, well before choosing a wig style, do the following to work out what type of face you have; measure:
- Your face across the top of your cheekbones
- Across your jawline from the widest point to the widest point
- Across your forehead at the widest point (usually somewhere about halfway between your hairline and eyebrows)
- From the tip of your hairline to the bottom of your chin
