Many things get better with age, like wine, cheese, and our ability to navigate life with grace and humor. But our hair? Not so much.

As we get older, our hair changes. It may become thinner, drier, more brittle, and less vibrant. And once your formerly luscious locks start to lose their thickness and luster, you might find yourself searching for a little help in the hair department.

If you're looking for a way to restore your hair to its former glory, or if you simply want to change up your look, it’s time to consider wearing a wig. No matter what stage of hair loss you're in, wigs for older women are an easy and convenient way to give your mane a boost—especially human hair lace front wigs, which provide the most natural-looking hairline and can be styled just like your own hair, with even more versatility.

At Daniel Alain, we believe that age is nothing but a number. Every woman deserves to love the way they look, which is why we offer a stunning collection of real hair wigs for older women.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Best Place to Buy Ladies Wigs?

The internet is awash with wigs of all shapes, sizes, and colors. But when it comes to finding the best human hair wigs for older ladies, you'll want to buy from a reputable source like Daniel Alain.

We've been in the business of creating beautiful and realistic wigs for over 20 years, using the finest hair and comfortable caps to craft our pieces. Our free Fit Kit allows you to try on a range of styles from the comfort of your home to find the perfect one for you.


Should Older Women Wear Wigs?

Older women should do...whatever they want! Wearing a wig is not a necessity when you get older, it is an option to explore if you feel like changing up your look. Wigs can give you a whole new lease on life, helping you to feel more confident and stylish—especially if you're struggling with hair loss.

What Wigs Look Most Most Natural-Looking on Older Women?

Real hair wigs for older women hands-down offer the most natural look, feel, and overall experience. Between  the two main types of wigs on the market—human hair and synthetic wigs—real hair wigs always come out on top in terms of realism.

Human hair wigs for older women do tend to be more expensive than synthetic wigs, but they are worth the investment if you want a wig that looks and feels like your own natural hair.

How Makes a Wig-High Quality?

How a wig is constructed—and the quality of materials used—will determine its overall value as a piece. Here are some key things you can look for to spot a high-quality wig:

  • Natural lace front: A lace front wig will have a more natural look because it simulates the appearance of hair growing out of the scalp.
  • Hand-tied cap: A hand-tied wig is a type of wig that has each strand of hair individually tied by hand to the cap. This results in a very natural-looking wig that can be styled and parted in any direction.
  • 100% European hair: The best wigs for older women are made with 100% human hair, and the highest quality wigs use European hair. European hair is softer and silkier than other types of hair, and it holds color and style better.

What are the Most Comfortable Wigs to Wear for Older Women?

Comfort is all about the cap when it comes to lace front wigs for older women. We recommend wigs that are hand-tied to a skin top because they offer the most airflow and breathability.

It's also crucial to make sure your cap is well fitted to your scalp. Anything too tight can  cause headaches, while anything too loose can cause the wig to slip.

If you're not sure what size cap you need, our team of experts would be happy to walk you through how to measure your head for a wig. Click here to book a consultation.

What is the Easiest Type of Wig to Wear?

The easiest wigs for older women to put on are the ones that require zero styling to look good. And that's exactly what you'll get with a human hair wig.

Because real hair strands already have a natural texture and volume, you can just put them on and go. No more hours spent in front of the mirror trying to get your hair just right—human hair wigs look great right out of the box!

How Much Do Older Women's Wigs Cost?

The cost of a wig depends on many factors like what kind of hair is used, how the cap is constructed, and the overall quality of the wig. You can find wigs for older women that range in price from $100 to $10,000.

Because we are dedicated to providing the best wigs for older women that look virtually undetectable, our wigs range in price from $2,391 to $10,849. We do offer monthly payment plans to make our wigs more accessible to anyone who needs them.

How Do I Choose the Right Wig?

Choosing the right wig from an endless list of wigs for older women can be daunting. But it helps if you keep a few things in mind.

First, consider your budget. Real hair wigs for older women can range in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, depending on the quality of the hair and construction.

Next, think about what kind of style you're looking for. Do you want something classic and chic? Or are you after a more modern look?

And finally, keep your personal taste in mind. After all, you'll be the one wearing the wig! So make sure you choose a style that makes you feel confident and fabulous.

Whether you're buying your first wig or your fifth, we know it's not always an easy decision. Before your start your search, you'll want to determine the best type of wig for you—and that can be determined by asking yourself a few questions:

  • Why are you buying a wig? Are you covering up bald spots or total hair loss? Are you looking for an easier way to style your hair?
  • What hair type do you prefer? Do you want a sleeker look or more volume? Are straight strands your jam or do you like thicker, wavy locks?
  • What is your budget? Older women’s wigs can range in price from $100 to $10,000, so it's important to know how much you're willing or able to spend.

What Are the Different Types of Human Hair Wigs?

No matter how similar they may look in a photo, not all human hair wigs for older women are created equal. Where the strands are sourced has a major impact on the wig's quality, including how well it holds styles, how long it lasts, and how natural-looking it is. Daniel Alain's older women's wigs are made with 100% European hair—the best quality in the world.

Here's a brief overview of the different human hair types you'll find during the virtual wig shopping process.

European Hair

By far the most expensive and hardest to come by, European hair wigs are some of the most premium wigs on the market. If you're looking for a sleek style that is buttery soft and ultra-shiny, then a European hair wig is the way to go.

However, 100% European hair is incredibly hard to find. Daniel Alain has access to the world's only private reserve of European hair. Because of their rarity, lace front wigs for older women made with these sought-after strands are often the most expensive on the market.

Indian Hair

Wigs made with Indian hair are a popular choice for women looking for an affordable alternative to European hair wigs. Indian hair is incredibly soft and has a natural sheen, making it a great choice if you're looking for a wig that's easy to style. It also offers more volume and thickness than European hair wigs for older women.

The downside of Indian hair wigs is that they don't last as long as wigs made with other types of human hair. They also require more upkeep and may not hold styles as well as wigs made with other types of human hair.

Asian Hair

While not as soft or bouncy as European hair, Asian strands are much more plentiful, which keeps the price down. If you're looking for an affordable human hair wig, chances are it's made with Asian hair. However, wigs made with 100% Asian hair tend to be less durable than wigs made with other human hair types and may not hold styles as well.

It's also good to note that many Asian hair wigs are made with what the wig industry calls "waste hair," or hair that's been collected from brushes, floors, and drains. This type of hair is often lower quality and more likely to tangle and shed.

Virgin Hair

A virgin hair wig is made with unprocessed strands—meaning the cuticles are still intact and facing the same direction. This ensures that the wig is less likely to tangle and shed, and can last for years with proper care.

Virgin hair wigs are basically impossible to find nowadays, so if you see a company advertising virgin hair wigs, proceed with caution and do your research to make sure you're getting what you're paying for.

Remy Hair

Remy hair is real human hair that has been collected from a single donor and cut while still attached to the scalp, ensuring that the strands flow in the same direction from root to tip. This helps the wig lay flatter and reduces tangling. Remy hair wigs for older women are some of the most popular wigs on the market because they offer a great combination of quality and price.
