What a Bob Wig Means
Also referred to as bobtail wig, a bob wig is a short hair wig with bobs. From its origin in the British courts to becoming a classic female wig, the bob wig has certainly come a long way. Once, it was worn by legal personalities in the courts of Britain. Today, it is worn by women all across the world.
A bob wig can be made either from real human hair or synthetic hair. Two key features that set a bob wig apart from other hair wigs are length and cut. A bob wig has short to medium length and is cut in a straight line to drape the wearer’s head. Bob wigs are available in a broad range of styles such as straight bob wigs, curly bob wigs, frizzy bob wigs etc. There is a bob wig to match every face shape, skin color and hair type. At the Newport Hair Loss Center, we bring you the broadest range of bob wigs in different colors, types and styles.

Human Hair Bob Wigs or Synthetic?
Bob wigs are made of either original hair or synthetic hair. You may find a third type of hair as well: heat-friendly synthetic. If you are a first-timer, you should understand what kind of looks each of these will offer.
Though high quality synthetic bob wigs can look natural, they certainly come with a set of limitations. All synthetic hair wigs have a ready-made style. This means you cannot style them using various curling and heating tools. Heat-friendly synthetic hair can be styled though. However, human hair bob wigs are always the best bet because they offer an incredibly natural look. Most of all, you can style, color and re-color these wigs as per your needs. Even if you wear it daily, human hair wigs will last for well over a year, but synthetic hair wigs won’t. Human hair wigs provide the maximum level of ease and comfort. Bob wigs made of human hair are ideal, particularly if you are dealing with a hair loss or hair thinning problem.
In terms of versatility, human hair bob wigs leave synthetic bob wigs far behind. The only concern here is the budget. Hair wigs made from original hair are more expensive than synthetic bob wigs. But investing in a human hair short bob wig or long blonde bob wig is always worth paying for. At Newport Hair Loss Center, we provide wigs made from 100% unprocessed European human hair. Get in touch with us for details on the variety and cost of these wigs.
Major Lengths of a Bob Wig
Bob wigs are available in various lengths. Given below are the major lengths you will find bob wigs in. Which length is ideal will depend on what kind of appearance you want to achieve as per your facial features.
- 8 Inch Bob Wigs
- 10 Inch Bob Wigs
- 12 Inches Bob Wig
- 14 Inch Bob Wig
8 Inch Bob Wigs
The length of this bob wig extends up to the chin around the head. If you have a long face, wearing an 8 inches bob wig will make your face look round. Eight inches is a good length for a bob wig. But you should also take into account the style of the wig when going for a particular length. For example, 8 inches can be good for a straight bob wig, but a little shorter for a curly one.
10 Inch Bob Wigs
For women with round faces, a 10 inches bob wig is a good match. This length reaches beyond the chin and up to the wearer’s neck. You can wear this specific length to elongate your round face. Again, if you buy a wig with a curly texture, you should go for a little longer, i.e. 12 inches bob wig.
12 Inches Bob Wig
Based on your facial features, you may want to go for a 12 inch bob wig. If you think an 8 inch or 10 inch wig is a bit too short for what you look for, you should go for a 12 inches long wig. You cannot increase the length of a short hair wig, but you can always trim a long one to achieve the ideal length. You can also easily tie up these bob wigs into a ponytail while at work.
14 Inch Bob Wig
For women who look for a wavy bob, this is the ideal length to go for. This length is suitable when you want to try multiple hairstyles. The best thing about these hair wigs is that it suits all types of faces.
If it is the first time you are going to buy a bob wig, you may find it confusing to pick the right length.

How to Wash and Care for a Human Hair Wig
It is important to give a human hair wig proper care and maintenance. If you wash and care for your wig in a proper manner, the wig will last for more than a year. Here is what you need to do.
- Keep your wig free from tangles. Comb it gently and use a detangling spray to remove the tangles in a hassle-free manner.
- Use lukewarm water to wash the hair wig. Use a high quality hair shampoo to massage the wig and then wash it gently.
- Buy a good hair conditioner to apply on the wig after the wash. This will keep the hair soft and prevent damage.
- Heat-dry the wig only if it is heat-resistant. Otherwise, you should give the hair wig enough time to air-dry.
- Avoid treating the wig with excessive levels of heat, as doing so on a regular basis will only weaken the strands of wig hair.
- Protect your wig from dust and stain. When not in use, store the hair wig in a sealed plastic bag or the wig box.
Buy the Right Bob Wig
If you want to enhance naturalness, achieve an attractive look and feel great comfort, you should always buy the right bob wig.
Head Size: The wig that you buy should be made to fit your head size. If it doesn’t fit your head in an accurate manner, it will not look natural. Never settle for a wig that is either tight or loose. Take your time to find a bob wig that sits on your head in a way that looks perfectly natural and beautiful. Plus, you should match the wig color with the color of your own hair.
Comfort: You will not want to wear a hair wig for too long, if it doesn’t offer a high level of comfort. For maximum comfort, you should go for a top quality human hair bob wig in a style of your choice. Bob lace front wigs made from 100% real human hair offers the maximum amount of comfort. These wigs are designed from fine quality material that keeps the wearer’s scalp cool.
Once you have found a bob wig that is a perfect match for what you look for, you should get it installed by a professional. An experienced hairstylist will align the wig hairline with your own hairline and blend it in a seamless manner. Some cutting and trimming may also be required for a perfect fit.
