How does a 250% density wig visually look like? Are there any differences between 180% density and 250% density wigs when wearing? How do I choose between these two densities of wigs? We've noticed that customers often have these questions, and today's article is primarily aimed at addressing these concerns.

How Wig Density Is Classified

Wig Density Levels: 150%, 180%, 200%, and 250% Wig Density

In the wig market, especially for frequent online wig shoppers, you'll commonly encounter wig densities of 150%, 180%, 200%, and 250%. Generally, wig densities lower than 150% are considered low-density wigs, which feel lighter on the head. However, these are less common in the market and often require customization.

Wig densities ranging from 150% to 180% are referred to as medium-density or normal density. They are the most prevalent and popular in the wig market, providing extra fullness while maintaining a natural appearance. This density range is suitable for both long and short hair.

Densities between 200% and 250% are classified as high-density and are relatively common in the wig market. After all, more hair in a wig is generally preferred over less. Especially for those seeking a full and voluminous look, high-density wigs are particularly suitable for long straight hair.

What Are The Differences Between 180% Density Wig And 250% Density?

Both providing fullness while maintaining a natural appearance, versatile, more styling options.

A 180% density wig:

-has a moderate amount of hair, a more natural density.

-is great for both short and long wigs. 

A 250% density wig:

-significantly more hair, slightly heavier, a little fuller.

-provides more versatility in creating extremely voluminous styles.

180% Density Vs. 250% Density, What Density Wig Should I Get?

It's undeniable that the multitude of wig density options offered by wig retailers can be annoy for some, despite the initial intention being to cater to various needs. As for choosing between 180% density and 250% density wigs, it might be beneficial to consider the desired appearance after wearing the wig. Most importantly, it should align with personal preferences. Below, I'll provide some guidelines for selecting wig density.

Wig Texture Affect Your Choice.

The most common types of wigs—straight, wavy, and curly—affect the choice of wig density. The visual appearance differs between the same density of straight and curly wigs; curls tend to enhance volume.

For a natural look, 250% density is more suitable for long straight hair. 180% density works well with curly wigs, providing a better fitting match. However, if you desire an extra or super voluminous effect, a 250% density curly wig is also a good choice.

180% Density For Short Hair, 250% Density For Long Hair.

For short length wigs or bob hairstyles ranging from 10 to 16 inches, we don't recommend choosing a 250% density wig; 180% density is already sufficient. However, for long length wigs, ranging from 18 to 26 inches, 250% density is more compatible, providing a fuller appearance from root to tip for your long straight hairstyle, making your look more glamorous.

Consider Your Budget.

180% density and 250% density wigs share many similarities; when worn, both appear relatively natural, full, and voluminous. However, 250% density wigs are more expensive than 180% density wigs, the same length. Therefore, when choosing between the two, it's important not to overlook the pricing factor.

Higher-density wigs require more hair to be sewn into the wig cap, increasing material costs. Additionally, higher-density wigs demand a more densely tied knotting technique onto the wig cap, which is more labor-intensive and time-consuming. Hence, labor costs also escalate as the wig density increases.

High-Density Is Better.

The density of a wig directly impacts how it feels and looks when worn. Apart from this, we advise against choosing low-density wigs because the wefts, which form the structure of the wig, can easily become visible. Moreover, low-density wigs are lighter in weight, making them more susceptible to exposure when there's wind, revealing the fact that you're wearing a wig. What’s more, wigs may inevitably experience shedding, particularly in the frontal lace area. Therefore, it's recommended to opt for medium to high-density wigs whenever possible. Therefore, both 180% density wig and 250% density wig are all safe bets.
