    A Special Message From CEO Carliz Teague

    As many of you know, being a mom isn't easy! I'm a working mom, blessed to have two beautiful children and a career I love. But we all know life gets pretty hectic sometimes. I have a special place in my heart for all mothers as our needs are often put aside for those of our children. My hope is for all women who are a part of our Wigs.com community to feel beautiful and loved every day - but especially on this day of celebrating motherhood.

    We are so excited to tell you all about the new Jon Renau Spring 2013 Wig Collection! A variety of length: short, mid-length and long wigs. Distinct cuts: flirty shags, chic bobs and long layers. And different features: monofilament, lace front and 100% hand-tied caps. This collection offers looks that are flattering and fashionable for women of any age. It’s all about women looking and feeling their most beautiful.

    Jon Renau Wigs Courtney and Anne

    Courtney & Anne

    Six styles in total and each are lace front, which creates the illusion of a natural hairline. Courtney and Anne are clearly stand-out styles as they both also feature a 100% hand-tied stretch cap, which is extremely comfortable. Courtney is the longest style in the collection, and Anne is the shortest.  Anne was inspired by actress Anne Hathaway, and who doesn't want to look like a gorgeous Oscar winner?

    Jon Renau Wigs Naomi and Vanessa

    Naomi & Vanessa

    Anne, Naomi and Vanessa all have HD (heat defiant) synthetic hair, which can be curled or straightened with heat tools for styling versatility. The great thing about Naomi is that you can comb it up for more height or down for less volume. It’s very versatile. Vanessa is a short shag, and fun fact: Jon Renau (John Reynolds) himself chose it as his favorite style in the collection.  He says it’s “fresh” and “fashion, I just love it.

    Jon Renau Wigs Elle and Kristen

    Kristen & Elle

    Kirsten is the chic, mid-length bob that falls right in the middle for those who don’t want a wig that’s too long or too short. And Elle is our Wig Experts’ pick for favorite overall style. After seeing it in person, we can say with confidence – it looks absolutely amazing! After all, it was named after a supermodel (Elle Macpherson).

    With a collection this spectacular, it’s hard to play favorites (but we do anyway!). The entire collection showcases the quality and comfort women have come to expect from the Jon Renau brand of wigs. Try a new look from the Jon Renau Spring 2013 Wig Collection. With something for everyone, there’s no doubt you’ll fall in love with one or more of these lovely styles.  And once you do, we think you’ll look and feel as beautiful as springtime!

    amore-remy-hair-human-hair-wigs

    This spring Amore introduced four NEW gorgeous styles all made with 100% remy human hair. They come in various lengths and in four face flattering silhouettes: short bob, layered lob, long & wavy and long and straight. They have a double monofilament cap which gives you an extra comfortable fit and a natural look where the hair is parted. And just look at the lace front, it looks incredible! It seamlessly blends in to give you an extremely realistic hairline. They’re lightweight and available in eight natural colors that work for every skin tone. Made with 100% remy human hair, these are the highest quality styles from Amore yet. You’ll love them!

    What is 100% remy human hair?

    Remy human hair is of the highest quality because the cuticle remains intact and the hair flows in the same natural direction. The result is hair that is stronger, healthier and less likely to tangle. In other words it’s the crème de la crème! You’ll love it, it looks and feels just like your own hair.

    Haven’t you heard? Everyone is wigging out!

    But in a good way! Wherever you look, wigs are haute and totally in fashion.

    Whether it’d be hair extensions or wigs the fact is everyone is wigging out for alternative hair!

    Why wigs?

    ecards-wigs-are-the-new-black Image by someecards.com

    Why wear wigs… why not?! You could get so much out of wigs if you give them a chance. They come in all sorts of colors, shapes, textures - not to mention all of the hairstyle possibilities! Think about how long it takes you to simply decide on a different hair color or hair cut. It’s such a permanent change most of us are scared to make the commitment. But with wigs you can go from one look to the next in an instant – change your look like you change your mind!

    Wigs for Everybody

    Wigs are no longer taboo; everyone and anyone can wear them. They’re not just for women with temporary or permanent hair loss anymore. Wigs are not only for those that need them. What’s more, they’re becoming part of pop culture. Can you imagine what Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry would look like without their wigs? Musical talent aside, it simply wouldn’t be the same!

    synthetic hair wigs Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry Lady Gaga look: Obsession by Risque wig; Nicki Minaj look: Party Girl Candy Stripe by Jon Renau wig; Katy Perry look: Tease by Incognito wig

    ‘Real Housewife’ Kim Zolciak revealed her own hair after taking off her wig. And her hair looked completely normal and beautiful! She wears wigs because she loves them. On a recent Facebook post, Kim said “I love my wigs, I love how easy they are. You just put them on and go, you can chose straight hair, curly hair, whatever I am feeling for the day. I do not do extensions, because it damages your real hair. So I will keep on wearing my wigs until the day I decide it's time to move on.” For her it’s all about comfort and versatility – exactly what you get from wigs.

    So get with the times and get your wig on!

    Bangs.

    Perms.

    Sun-In.

    Do we hear a unanimous cringe? Yeah, most of us have a hair problems,don't stress out tress outspray-in hair highlighter or perm horror story to tell and boy, are they scary (and ugly!). We’ve all been there – stuck with a case of bad hair blues. Think about how long it took you to grow out those self-cut bangs, or that bad perm… painful to think about it, isn’t?

    The thing is too often you end up with a hairstyle that is either too costly, high maintenance or damaging to your natural hair. There’s no reason why you should put your hair under so much stress, especially if your hair is thinning and falling out.

    With summer only a few weeks away you must be itching for a new look. And we all know you’d do just about anything in the name of good hair. But would you give wigs and hair extensions a chance?

    Hair Extensions & Wigs

    The times are changing and alternative hair is becoming the norm. Just take a look around you! It’s super easy to change up your hairstyle with a wig or hair extensions - and the choices are endless. You can go from long to short hair without ever picking up a pair of scissors. If you’re looking to be a sassy redhead for the night, or have wildly curly or sexy tousled hair, you really don’t need to resort to those harsh chemicals that will harm your own hair.

    Protect your hair by wearing wigs and clip-in hair extensions. There’s no shame in wearing them, they’ll only make your life easier.

    As we’ve learned before in our previous monofilament wig post, wigs made with a monofilament cap construction are super natural looking wigs.  The monofilament wig hand-knotting process is long and tedious, but the result is incredibly natural! Since each strand of hair is manually hand-knotted into the monofilament material this allows the hair to lie and flow naturally. There’s much to learn about monofilament wigs, so let’s chat about the different types of monofilament wigs!

    Hand-Tied Monofilament Wigs

    Monofilament Wig: Top

    The first we’ll talk about are monofilament tops (also known as mono tops). A monofilament top covers the entire top part of the wig. This is where you would naturally part your hair. Also, these wigs have open-wefted sides and back, which are machine made. The mono top is a mesh-like material with individual strands of either synthetic or human hair hand-knotted into it.  In terms of flexibility, these are the kinds of wigs you would get the most out of.

    Examples:

    monofilament wig - Human Hair Wigs - Beguile by Raquel
    Beguile by Raquel Welch

    monofilament wig - Human Hair Wigs - Diamond by Louis Ferre
    Diamond by Louis Ferre

     

    Monofilament Wig: Part

    A monofilament part is a part line located at a fixed location on the wig. The designated section features a thin strip of monofilament. So, you can purchase a wig with a left, right or center monofilament part. A mono part has a more affordable cost compared to a monofilament top wig. The part, however, cannot be changed – so choose wisely!

    Examples:

    monofilament wig - Opening Night monofilament wig
    Opening Night by Raquel Welch

    monofilament wig - High Society - monofilament wig
    High Society by Gabor

     

    Monofilament Wig: Crown

    As the name suggests the monofilament is placed at the crown of the wig. This construction is more commonly found in bob wig styles. The benefits of having a mono crown wig are that it distributes the hair evenly and naturally at the root. Also it gives the look of natural hair growth at the crown of the hair, which makes your bob wig much more believable.

    Examples:

    monofilament wig -  Nicki
    Nicki by Jon Renau

    monofilament wig - Deluxe by Gabor
    Deluxe by Gabor

     

    FAQ Monofilament Wig

    Are monofilament wigs durable?

    Yes, they are but remember the monofilament material is delicate so it should be treated carefully. Do not pull harshly on the hair because this could loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.

    Can I wash my monofilament wig the same as my other wigs?

    Yes, you may wash your monofilament wig but do not add conditioner at the root. The conditioner will loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.

    If I color my human hair wig, will it stain the monofilament?

    Because the monofilament material is sheer and thin it will add a hint of color but will not stain the monofilament wig completely. The monofilament top, part or crown will still have a realistic look.

    Want the look of a monofilament wig for less? A Skin Part wig gives you a natural looking part without the high cost. However, these wigs are not to be confused with hand-tied monofilament wigs because the part is machine-made. The appearance of skin is simulated with a polyurethane section in which a machine inserts the fiber to create the look of a scalp. Although less common, skin part wigs are an affordable substitute to a monofilament wig.

    On April 27th, National Donate Your Hair Day, two of our employees volunteered to cut and donate their hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.

    Pantene created and funded the Beautiful Lengths program in 2006 with the American Cancer Society to help make real-hair wigs for women living with cancer. This year, Seventeen Magazine and Pantene teamed up to host the first-ever national event to encourage women and men to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair.

    More than 18,000 wigs have been provided to cancer patients thanks to Pantene's program. We’re extremely happy to be part of this selfless movement to help those in need.

    Watch this video to see our Wigs.com employees make the kindest cut of all.

    Why is it important to donate hair? Read our previous blog post, Donate Hair for Cancer, to learn more.
