The Two Main Types of Wig Anxiety: Part One

Click to subscribe to the CysterWigs blog in your favorite reader app

Wig anxiety is a real thing and it can manifest in a couple of different ways.

A very common manifestation of wig anxiety that is particularly common among new wig wearers is the concern that everyone knows you’re wearing a wig. This is not true. This anxiety usually fades over time as you begin to realize that most people have no clue you’re wearing a wig. (And if anyone does notice, they tend to be fellow wig wearers, which is actually kind of a cool way to meet friends and share styling tips.)

A less talked about, but just as common, form of wig anxiety is the concern that there is A PERFECT wig out there somewhere but you just haven’t found it yet and this PERFECT wig is the magical solution to all of your problems. Since this wig most likely doesn’t exist, it can (quite understandably) cause distress to individuals actively in pursuit of it.


Let’s discuss Type 1

    Thank you for this topic!
    I have bio hair but it is thinning and sometimes I just want to change things up.
    I have invested a couple thousand dollars in wigs; most of them have come from Cyster Wig when I found out how wonderful your company is.
    I put one on and get it all styled and think I’m looking pretty good and then chicken out at the last minute to wear it out.
    I always feel like someone is going to say something or people are looking at me because they know I have a wig on.
    I am so glad to hear I am not alone about feeling uncomfortable going out in public with my wig on.
    I am going to start practicing!
    Thank you again,

      Hey there Roray!

      Thank you visiting the CysterWigs’ blog! I’m so glad you were able to connect with this post. You are not alone in this Roray. I know from my personal wig wearing experience that sharing our moments of anxiety helps lessen the weight of it all.

      Let the inner child in you have fun with the practicing!

    I am petite with a pea-sized head. I’m constantly looking for a longer bob with ultra light density. I convince myself that once I find this perfect piece that wig wearing will be so much easier, and my relatives will stop sneering at me! That will never happen, but I still keep looking!

      Hi Jada!

      Oh sweetie, I’m sorry to hear about your relatives. I truly believe we all have family with some level of crazy.

      Have you tried wigs from the BelleTress and Ellen Wille lines? Those two lines have pretty low density especially compared to Jon Renau or Noriko.

      I hope this helps.
