Chemo Wigs: How To Pick The Right Wig For Your Face Shape

As you may well have heard, here at Masumi we have teamed up with Ellen Wille wigs to sell a range of our favourite pieces from their chemo wigs collection. 

So, to help you decide which lace front wig styles will suit your face shape the best, we have put together a handy guide on how to pick the perfect wig for you! 

The first thing you will want to do is to figure out what shape your face is.

The best way to do this is to look at your face in the mirror and see whether your jawline is rounded, pointy, square or oval. If you are unsure still, find a photograph of yourself and trace around your face shape using tracing paper, then see which shape matches your face the best. 


Oval – If your face is an oval shape you are in luck! Due to your face being evenly balanced in proportion you can wear pretty much any chemo wig style you would like. Wigs that accentuate your features rather than covering your face shape will look the best, but feel free to be daring and bold with your choice if you want. 

Round – If you have a more rounded face then something that has a side parting rather than a centre parting will look best. Also, look for lace front wigs that bring in a bit of height and volume around the crown as this will help balance out your face shape. Longer hair will help elongate your face more, whilst a short swept back style will help compliment your face shape.

Heart shape – Longer styles are best for those of you who have a heart-shaped face. Anything chin-length and below will help draw your eye across the length of your face, whilst light fringe and a side parting will soften those more pronounced features. If you want to go for a bolder look, try a shorter cut that holds more weight around the back nape area, this will accentuate your sharper features, giving you that gorgeous chiseled look. 

Square – A wig with a bit of a curl or slight wave to it will look best on a square face shape. Keep the length around shoulder length and below, unless you want to go for a slightly shorter cut, with a dramatic side parting. Often tucking one side of your hair behind your ear will really accentuate that amazing jawline of yours. However, if you want to soften this shape, try something more whispy with lots of layers.

Long – Styles that are shoulder length or short will help minimize a longer face shape, drawing the attention back up to your features. A side parting with layers or soft wispy bangs will compliment you a lot and anything that adds volume to the width of your face will help balance out your geometric face shape.

We hope that this will help you with choosing your perfect chemo wig. Enjoy browsing through carefully selected styles from Ellen Wille now available at Masumi Headwear website.
