Ever since I first started wearing extensions, I’ve always believed that you don’t have to spend a gargantuan amount of money on high-quality hair, which is why I always opt for some of the best human hair wigs—but more on that later. In college, I spent a lot of time scrolling through hundreds of hair vendor sites and Youtube reviews to find options that offered quality inside my frugal budget. After some trial and error, and discovering some of my most beloved units without going bankrupt, I decided to swear by this philosophy indefinitely. Still, I tested my new standard by purchasing a $500 unit that barely lasted a month. Now I know that even the best human hair wigs aren’t above my price range.
Today, there are more affordable human hair wig vendors than I can keep up with for luxurious human hair units. Spend hours going down a YouTube or Reddit rabbit hole or simply browse your go-to human hair wig websites—you’ll soon discover there’s no reason to spend a month’s worth of bills on your next ‘do. Even you’re only looking to spend less than $100 (give or take) on a new unit, you’re not limited to the traditionally cheaper synthetic options.
And just in case you don’t believe me, I’ve rounded up a list of 15 the best human hair wigs that will make you feel like you’re walking in slow motion with a cool breeze running through your strands. Keep scrolling and prepare to be amazed—and prepare to whip out your credit card, too. These hairstyles will be hard to resist.
