This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in November of 2018. 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 help fund the Wiki.

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.

9. Formal Hair Natural

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously 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 has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
