It is a common case that a customer considered purchasing a wig, but when he or she actually went to the store, he or she came back without buying it because the price was too high…. Wigs are not well known for their fair prices, but how much do they really cost and to what extent can you get a wig for your hair? Here is a summary.
Be careful what’s available for a few thousand dollars!
Partial wigs are sometimes sold in mass merchandisers and department stores for a few thousand yen. The low price may have caught some people’s attention.
You may think to yourself, “I can get a partial wig for this little price.” However, most of them will feel uncomfortable when you put them on your hair. This is because they are made of inexpensive artificial materials, and when mixed with human hair, they inevitably look unnatural.
Be careful not to lose money buying cheap products.
Market price for a ready-made wig starts at 10,000 yen
Ready-made wigs are popular with people who want to wear something already finished quickly and don’t have time to go to a salon. Since the wig is completed by simply slipping it on over the head and blending it in, the time required for styling can be greatly reduced.
These wigs are inexpensive and can be purchased for as little as 10,000 yen. However, some materials can quickly become ruined, so it is important to be very careful. You can also try self-cutting if you want to fine-tune your hair.
Popular semi-custom wigs start at 30,000 yen
Semi-custom wigs are popular for those who do not intend to have a bold hairstyle but want a wig that fits them perfectly. After choosing a basic shape, you can get a type of wig that can be arranged to suit your head shape and hair quality, starting at 30,000 yen.
However, since each person is inevitably different, the more you order, the more it will cost. Depending on the length, a person with long hair may spend around 400,000 yen.
The market price for a full-custom wig starts at 300,000 yen.
The price jumps dramatically when it comes to a full-custom wig that can be colored and permed. Not only is it estimated to cost at least 300,000 yen, but it can also take up to a month to complete.
If you order a lot, the price can go up to about 800,000 yen. Even so, it is recommended for those who want something a little better since they will be wearing it every day.
Since wigs vary widely in shape, length, and hair quality, it is difficult to find a good compromise on price. After visiting several stores that you are interested in, you should find the one that best suits your needs.
