Tress to Impress – a Capitol Couture Guide to Wigs
Inspired by Effie Trinket’s endless supply of perfect coiffures, Capitol Couture presents a guide to choosing the right wig. Forget those drab locks you were born with and get fab with these simple steps!
1. Face Shapes (Fig. 1)
a. Oval — The most common face shape. Common is boring. Look for elaborate wigs that can distract from this lackluster ordinariness.
b. Square — An unfortunately masculine shape requires a wig that will break up those harsh lines. You want people to know you’re a woman, don’t you? Unless, of course, you are a man.
c. Round — You may want to consider facial modification to correct this deformity. (See our upcoming issue for a list of Capitol Couture-recommended enhancement surgeons.)
d. Long — Saddle this equine face shape with volume and width to give yourself a more curved, feminine appearance. (However, if equestrian fashion is back in style, procure a mane-like wig and flaunt that elongated visage!)
e. Heart — Disguise a cumbersome forehead by hiding it altogether. With a curtain of heavy bangs, no one will ever know.
f. Triangle — A pointed chin of such misshape can make people uncomfortable, especially around food. Consider facial modification to correct this.
2. Fibers (Fig. 2)
Remember: If it wasn’t grown on someone’s head, you don’t want it on yours. Locks farmed from District 7 tend to be the most lustrous of all, so look for the Capitol seal of authenticity.
It’s always best to leave important matters like wig sizing to the professionals. Visit a registered hairline specialist to ensure the perfect fit!
An elaborate hairstyle can draw eyes away from repulsive face shapes and other uncorrected abnormalities. Intricate forms can turn an unmemorable head into something worthy of being seen. Think of your face as a pedestal, your wig a sculpted work of art.
Like any precious object, your wig must be cared for with diligence and respect. Using cheap styling and cleansing products can be disastrous to your wig’s lifespan. Treat your wig like a living thing, only better! (Note: True Capitol fashionistas will only wear a wig once.)
