Best Inexpensive

We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. When you have coarse or unruly hair, sometimes you just want to put a wig on so you don't need to deal with it. We found models for African American women that look like genuine locks growing from your own head. Some are constructed of human tresses, while others are synthetic, so you'll see a good price range. Many of them can handle hot styling tools and colorings, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best african american wig on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 27, 2018: We made sure to include plenty of lengths, from pixie cut short to mermaid long, and in styles from stick straight to the tightest curls. No look is beyond reach when using the wigs on our list. We also looked out for common problems women find with these products, like inauthentic edges and cheap-looking color, and made sure not to include any models that suffered from them.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
