What are the Best High Quality Wigs for Women?

Print/Save as PDF

We've all felt the power of a good hair day. You walk a little taller, your step has a little more pep, and you just feel like you can take on the world. But what about those days when your hair just isn't cooperating? When it's limp, flat, or greasy no matter what you do? Or when it's starting to thin and fall out in fistfuls?


Enter wigs. With high quality wigs, good hair days are no longer a fluke. They're your everyday reality.

While you can buy high quality wigs online, unfortunately, not all wigs can give you that boost of instant confidence. A lot of wigs out there look, well, like wigs. And when it comes to 100% human hair, only a high quality wig (like the luxury wigs we craft at Daniel Alain) can truly pass for natural locks.

The best high quality wigs are the ones that turn heads without turning anyone on to the fact that you're wearing a wig. They should be comfortable, breathable, and look so natural that even your closest friends and family won't be able to tell it's not your real hair (unless, of course, you want them to know!).


At Daniel Alain, we have a premium selection of high quality human hair wigs for women—and when we say high quality, we mean it.


Our wigs are made with only the finest 100% European hair, sourced from the top 10% of hair available in the world. European strands are oh-so-soft and silky with a natural shine that can't be replicated. It's prized for its ability to retain its natural properties, including its texture, luster, and bounce. 


But our wigs aren't just made with high quality hair, they're also crafted with a high level of precision and attention to detail. Our master artisans hand-knot each individual strand of hair into the lace front base, creating a wig that's as comfortable as it is gorgeous. The caps are made with lavish Swiss lace that is oh-so-delicate to the touch, you can flaunt your gorgeous hair all day long without missing a beat.


Expert colorists invest years into training to procure the most on-trend, striking, vividly-saturated hues that are ready to turn-heads. When it comes to making a high-quality wig, the devil’s in the details, and Daniel Alain’s meticulous attention to detail shines through when you run your fingers through one of our silky-soft wigs.

If you're on the hunt for where to buy high quality wigs, look no further. You have arrived.



When it comes to high quality human hair wigs, there is no grander showstopper than the Grandeur wig. Long, glossy, 16-inch strands of our finest European hair will cascade down your back as you move, shimmering and shining in the light.

This high-quality lace front wig comes in a variety of colors, from the ever-popular blonde to more dramatic hues like crimson red and jet black. And because it's made with human hair, you can style it any way you want—curl it, flat iron it, or wear it straight. The sky's the limit.

Sashay through night with Grandeur.




A wig is essentially like an awesome outfit for your head, and just like any outfit, you want it to make you feel your best. With the Chic wig, you'll instantly exude confidence with a shoulder-length cut and smooth European strands that are just begging to be touched.


But don't let the name fool you—this wig is anything but basic. The Chic comes in a wide range of colors and can be styled to suit any occasion, whether you're headed to brunch with the girls or out on a hot date.

Style is for the woman who wants to taste every flavor at the table. One of our most versatile high quality lace front wigs, Style comes in an impressive 16 colors, from the classic (like sandy brown and golden blonde) to the eye-catching (like dark espresso and cinnamon red). With so many shades to choose from, you can have a different look for every day of the week (if you're feeling ambitious).


With sleek, smooth strands and a face-framing cut, you'll be turning heads left and right.

All of the beauty and none of the fuss—that's what you can expect from Pixie. This high quality human hair wig is as low-maintenance as they come, with a short, cropped cut that's easy to style and even easier to wear.


Even with only 5 inches of locks to work with, this cut still packs a punch in terms of glamour. You can spike it up for a fun, flirty look or smooth it down for a more sophisticated vibe. The choice is yours.

Steal to show with Pixie.





Ready to jump on the wig bandwagon but not sure where to start? The René wig is the perfect way to dip your toe in the water. Because she's made with our signature blend of World Select Hair—and fabulously potent combination of Indian, Asian, and European tresses—René is lower in price and higher in volume.


Indian and Asian hair offers more texture and body than European hair, so if you're looking for a bit of extra oomph, René is your girl. But don't worry, she still has that soft, silky feel that you crave in a high quality wig.

Take the plunge with René.




Hair loss is no joke. Between the emotional strain of seeing your locks fall out and the physical discomfort of an itchy, sensitive scalp, hair loss can take a serious toll on your quality of life. Which is why our Gripper Actif wig is so popular.

Not only is Gripper Actif one of the most comfortable high quality human hair wigs on the market, but she's also made with a silicone lining that helps to grip the wig to your scalp and keep it in place. Running, jumping, dancing—you name it, Gripper can handle it.

Feel like yourself again with Gripper Actif.




Sometimes, less is more. With Gripper Lite, you get all of the benefits of our original Gripper collection—the comfort, the security, the style—but in a lighter, more breathable package.

Gripper Lite is perfect for women with sensitive scalps or those who live in hot, humid climates. And because she's made with 100% European hair, you can still enjoy all the silky softness and easy manageability that you love in high quality wigs.

Keep it cool with Gripper Lite.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a High Quality Wig?

High quality wigs are wigs that most closely mimic the look, feel, and movement of real human hair. They are hand-tied, have a lace front, and are made from 100% human hair as that construction yields the most realistic looking wig.

Wig quality often comes down to hair quality. Strands that are collected directly from donors are typically thicker and healthier than those that have been mass-produced in a factory or collected from floors and drains.

What Kind of Wigs Look Real?

A lace wig will look the most like your real hair as the lace frontal mimics a natural hairline. Lace wigs are also hand-tied, which allows for more styling versatility and a realistic appearance.

Having real human hair also makes a big difference as you can style it just like your natural hair. You can curl it, flat iron it, and even dye it if you so choose!

How Much Does a High Quality Wig Cost?

Compared to synthetic wigs or wigs made from lower quality human hair, high quality wigs are more expensive. However, they are also significantly more durable, can be styled and colored as you would your own hair, and will last much longer with proper care.

The cost of high quality real hair wigs varies depending on the brand. Daniel Alain's high quality lace front wigs start at $2,391.

How Can You Tell a Good Quality Wig?

There are a few key things to look for when you're trying to determine if a wig is high quality. First, check to see if the wig is made from 100% human hair—anything less won't give you the same natural look and feel.

Next, see if the wig has a lace front. Lace fronts help to create a more natural hairline and can be trimmed to better match your face shape. Finally, take a look at the construction of the wig. High quality wigs are typically hand-tied, which results in a softer, more natural look and feel.


What is the Best Quality Human Hair Wig?

The best quality human hair wig is the one that looks, feels, and styles most like your own natural hair. However, what works for one person may not work for another. Wigs are a very personal item, so it's important to choose the one that's right for you.

If you're looking for high quality human hair wigs that are soft, smooth, and lustrous, we recommend checking out Daniel Alain's Premiere Collection. Our wigs are made from 100% European human hair and are sure to exceed your expectations.

Where Can I Buy a High Quality Wig?

There are thousands of places to buy high quality wigs online. However, not all wig retailers are created equal. When shopping for a high quality wig, it's important to choose a reputable seller that understands what makes a wig exceptional: human hair (preferably European), a hand-tied cap, and a comfortable lace front.

At Daniel Alain, we only sell the finest human hair wigs for women available. Our strands are hand-tied and collected from the world's only private reserve of European tresses, which means that you're getting the absolute best of the best when you shop with us.

What Kind of Wig Looks Most Natural?

High quality lace front wigs are widely considered to be the most natural-looking wigs on the market. That's because they're constructed with a thin, transparent lace material that blends seamlessly into your skin, giving the illusion that the hair is growing directly from your scalp.

Real human hair also looks more natural than synthetic fibers, as it can be styled and colored to match your own hair. If you're looking for a wig that looks completely natural, we recommend choosing a lace front wig made from 100% human hair.

Are Human Hair Wigs Better than Synthetic?

Both human hair and synthetic hair wigs have their place. Synthetic wigs are low cost,  low maintenance, and require no styling. However, they don't look as natural, and they can last as little as four months.

High quality human hair wigs are more expensive, but they offer a level of realism that synthetic wigs cannot match.  They can be styled, colored, and cut just like your own hair, which means that you can change your look as often as you'd like.

What Are the Different Types of Human Hair Wigs?

There are many different types of high quality human hair wigs, each with its own set of benefits.

European Hair

European hair wigs are made from 100% human hair that has been collected from donors in Europe. European hair is soft, smooth, and lustrous, which makes it a popular choice for high quality lace front wigs.

However, it's also the rarest type of hair and, therefore, the most expensive.

Indian Hair

Indian hair wigs are made from 100% human hair that has been collected from donors in India. Indian hair is a bit thicker and coarser than European hair, but it's still soft and manageable.

Indian hair is less expensive than European hair and offers more body and volume.

Asian Hair

Asian hair wigs are made from 100% human hair that has been collected from donors in Asia. Asian hair is the thickest type of human hair, making it a good choice for women with high-density hairstyles.

However, Asian hair can be more difficult to style than other types of human hair. It's also often the victim of unsavory collection practices, like getting hair from the floor, hairbrushes, or even drains.

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair is hair that has never been dyed, permed, or chemically processed in any way. Virgin hair wigs offer the highest level of quality and realism, as the hair has been carefully collected and preserved in its natural state.

However, virgin hair wigs are also the most expensive type of high quality human hair wigs on the market. And it's pretty much impossible to find it as so many people expose their strands to chemicals and dyes.

Remy Hair

Remy hair is hair that has been collected from donors and carefully sorted so that all the hairs are facing the same direction. This prevents tangling and matting, and it results in a wig that's softer, smoother, and more manageable.

Remy hair can be sourced from Asia, Europe, and India. It refers to the collection and sorting method, not the quality of the hair itself. Remy hair can be virgin or processed.
