Hello! I have been in Lolita for a little while now and I was considering buying a wig (from Bodyline because I don't want an expensive one if I don't like it). However, I have very thick, curly, fluffy, and fairly long hair. I could flatten it if it is wet or if I use hair gel, but I'm worried that it won't fit in the wig; even if it does, my wig might be damaged. I was wondering if there was any advice you could give about this aside from cutting my hair. ;_; Thank you!

Just use a wig cap. You’ll be fine I promise. I have a lot of long, thick hair too and I have no problem with wigs unless they’re short. Bodyline sells wig caps for $1. No need for your hair to be wet or gelled or any of that silly stuff. I just put my hair into a ponytail where I only pull it half way through on the last loop and then put on the wig cap. The good ones like the one I linked are open at the top so you put them the whole way over your head until it’s around your neck and then pull it up over your head so it pulls all the hair into it.

Urgent!!~ Is it okay to wear a split tone wig with classic lolita? I know they are more commonly used for sweet but I have a blonde and brown rhapsody one that I would like to know if it would work

I think that if both colors are natural colors it can work very well. I would just stay away from the Sweet pastels and bright colors unless you were being very careful about them making sense with the coord. Your blonde and brown should be perfectly fine.

Do you know how poofy the wig supplier rhapsody wigs are? I don't want it to be too overwhelming and take away from my coord.

I think they’re just poofy enough. I have one of theirs and I really love it. It’s great worn as it is for more elaborate coords and then I can do a lot of different braided styles with it since it’s so long for other coords and when I take the braids out at the end of the day the wig goes right back to normal.

I've been looking for a wine colored wig on a budget. GLW and lockshop are just too expensive for me. I saw that people own bodyline wigs in wine but I just don't see where they are getting the wine colored ones. Can you help a sister out? thanks!

The wine colored wigs from Bodyline are probably their color  Red 4. It’s the color you see pictured for this wig and I think it’s a gorgeous color and that particular wig is very nice as well. This wig also comes in that same red if you wanted something shorter and red 3 may work as well but I can’t find any pictures of it as a full wig, just the little swatch they have.

Hi, I'm planning on buying Infanta's Strawberry Sundae OP and I know for the most part how I want to coord it (I'm not an OTT fan so black shoes, white tights, wrist cuffs, matching head bow and probably some kind of bag) but I am stumped on the hair. I was wondering if you could suggest any wigs in the under $30 range that you think would go well with that dress.

If you’re trying to stay away from OTT just go with a natural looking wig with a little curl to it. Something bouncy and cute to go with the super sweet look the dress has but in a natural color. Bodyline has a few wigs I can think of that would work nicely and are in your price range but unfortunately they don’t want to load for me at the moment.

URGENT! Please help I have my 1st meet on saturday. Can I wear a blonde wig with gothic lolita? I really like that it makes my black hair accessories Stand out compared to my Brown wig. Ive only seen gothic worn with dark hair.

Your blonde wig will be perfectly fine.

I'm not physically prevented from dyeing my hair by allergies, but wigs are still really convenient for me. When I was in middle school my parents were dead against me dyeing my hair, even natural colors, because my hair's dark and they thought the bleach would wreck it. I like my natural colour and if I was to dye my hair it'd be blue or purple, but both my high school dress code and my college part-time job banned unnatural colours. Wearing wigs means I get to have fun colors AND keep my job.

Work is part of the reason I have wigs too.

I'm also a different anon about the wig thing; after I got sick my hair thinned out really badly and I can't even style it into a bun I don't have thick enough hair. Wigs are really nice for me (colored naturally or otherwise) because I can't style my hair at all.

Thank you for sharing this with us dear.

A thing I wanted to add for the anon asking about the costume-ish traits.. I'm happy that it's not unusual to wear wigs in these styles(still haven't gotten one though) because I, for example, can't color my hair.. My psoriasis makes it sting and hurt terribly and it makes the psoriasis worse, since mine is in the scalp.. So if I want colored hair I can still get cute colors and style because of the brands focusing on lolita~<33233 just an example that makes lolita even more important to me^^

I’m happy to hear your input! I’ve never taken into consideration reasons people may not be able to dye their hair and how great wigs must be in those situations!

I'm not trying to be an asshole here, but if Lolita is a fashion, and is not meant to be a costume, why do some Lolita's wear doll contacts, and brightly colored unnatural wigs? It makes it look more like a costume imo. I'm not saying they can't do it, I was just wondering why.

They’re just elements that help take coords to the next level like any other accessory. There are a lot of other Japanese street fashions that use these things as well. Gyaru isn’t at all a costume either but they love their circle lenses. There are people who dye their hair bright unnatural colors but that doesn’t make their clothes costumes. I don’t see much difference between that and someone who chooses to wear wigs rather than committing to the same color every day.
