  • What color is your hair naturally? If you naturally have either very light blond or very dark brown/black you have to be careful because a lot of reds don't look good. If you tend towards blond you might want to go a little warmer, a medium or light auburn because the dark auburn can take on an orangish look. If you have really dark hair you might want to consider something more mahogony or burgandy tinted because a dark auburn can look really fake. Try doing a web search for hairstyles, maybe you can find one of those sites that you upload a photo and can "try out" different looks.

  • Take a peek at the phone book and see if there are any wig shops in your area. It is a scream!

    Until you 'try on' different colors will never truly know which one feels right. I put on a black wig one evening before a performance at a theater....My husband walked right past me without knowing who I was. Change can be fun and surprising.
