What in the wig?

September 09, 2020

Wigs are so convenient – there is no denying that. I personally cannot tell you how many times my wigs have saved me from ‘’bad hair days’’- you know days when your hair is just so frustrating and you are not really in the mood to do anything to it. I know hair rocks but there are days when I just want to stuff my hair underneath a scarf and call it a day! Those are the days I turn to my trusted wigs for help. They are versatile and they are capable of switching up our looks from casual to glam in just a few moments. It is funny though how popular wigs have become over the years in pop culture and amongst women. Yet, we still know little about how wigs came to be.

What is a lace front wig?

September 08, 2020

When you hear the word "lace," you probably think of a delicate fabric made from yarn or thread that has a web-like appearance or intricate pattern. You might also think of a fine dress, stockings or even curtains. But you’ve probably never thought about wigs. But if you’re looking for wigs with a more realistic look, that’s where lace comes in.

Why are (natural) red shades in such short supply?

Why are (natural) red shades in such short supply?

September 02, 2020

Because reds are difficult for most women to pull off, so they don't sell particularly well. Like with all mass-produced products, the more popular it is, the more likely they are to make more of it. This is why you'll see lots of demure brunette shades and rooted blondes, but reds are in short supply for most styles.

What is a wefted wig?

August 26, 2020

A weft is hair fibers (synthetic hair fiber or human hair fiber) that have been stitched/sewn onto a material to create a row of hair strands. Wefts usually make up basic wig caps. Wigs made like this tend to be at the cheaper end of the wig scale, but they’re big on volume and can be comfortable to wear. The wefts can help provide a nicely styled look, and help hide the construction of the wig from view.

What if your insurance won't cover the cost of your hair?

What if your insurance won't cover the cost of your hair?

August 19, 2020

Do you have any recommendation for people who need a wig due to PCOS but their insurance doesn't cover it? I've asked my insurance company if they'll cover a full cranial prosthesis but they will not. My doctor is in support of me getting one due to the alopecia and less willing to write me a script but it's a no-go through the plan.

What happened to the

What happened to the "Dud List"

August 18, 2020

Remember the Dud List? If you don't, then let me bring you up to speed: I used to maintain a "Dud List" of wigs that I thought were either grossly overpriced for what they were, had shoddy craftsmanship, or caused a LOT of returns due to quality concerns.

What do you mean by

What do you mean by "Medical Grade"?

August 12, 2020

Medical wigs are made to be used as prosthetics (hair replacements) as opposed to fashion or cosplay wigs, which are worn to look cute but are not meant to be worn by folks with medical hair loss. Medical wigs tend to have comfort features and high end finishes. These include felt, silicone, or polyurethane in the caps to aid with grip and comfort when worn against a bare scalp. If they have lace, the lace is precut. (This is not the case in fashion and cosplay wigs, where they emphasize customization of the hair line over ease of wear.) That's the general rule of thumb, at least. Some brands blur those lines, like Rene of Paris, Ellen Wille's Changes and Perucci lines, and the newer crop of Estetica wigs. These all tend to skimp on higher end cap features in favor of fast production and trendier styles, similar to fashion brands.

Things You Can and Cannot Do To Synthetic Wigs.

Things You Can and Cannot Do To Synthetic Wigs.

August 04, 2020

There seems to be three main types of synthetic wig owners.

The first group is made up of those who are almost scared to touch their wigs because they think that the slightest modification will ruin their wigs. The second group is made up of those who think they can do anything they want to their synthetic wigs and the wigs will be just fine. And the third group understands that there are dos and don’ts when it comes to handling a synthetic wig. These wig wearers know that when you show your wigs love and treat them right, that care and pride will shine right through.
