    Wigs make life easy. Who wouldn’t want to put on perfect hair? We wear wigs because we want to look our best… and for the convenience. So traveling with them should also be a breeze!

    Here are 6 of our Wig Expert tips to keep your wigs and hairpieces looking good on the go.

    1. The perfect storage. A super stylish way to travel with wigs and hairpieces is in a functional and chic bag that’s specifically designed for them.

    Amy Gibson ResQ Bag Kit + Mini

    The ResQ Bag & Kit + Mini by Amy Gibson protects wigs, hairpieces, and extensions in a unique mesh lining that minimizes tangles and frizz, making it safe for traveling. It’s also beautiful!

    This is by far the best solution… but in a pinch… you can also use a Ziploc baggie. Just make sure it’s filled with air to keep your wig from getting squished.

    2. It’s all about options. There is no way to get the versatility of hairstyles with anything other than wigs. Think about when and where you’ll be going on your trip. For peace of mind take more than one wig with you. If you are going somewhere hot… bring a short style… you’ll thank us later! The ability to change your look from day to night will be worth it!

    Checkout this video about human hair and synthetic hair wigs for options to consider.

    3. Love your hair, and it will love you. When you’re traveling you don’t want to have to stop and wash your hairpieces. The easiest way to keep your wig clean longer is by wearing a headliner. The No Sweat Liner by HEADLINE IT! keeps you dry and comfortable all day long. It absorbs any sweat and moisture so you and your wigs stay fresh. The individually wrapped packages make it easy to take anywhere.

    4. Together they stand. A great way to reduce the daily maintenance of a wig is to place her on a wig stand when she’s no longer in use. Not only will this keep her free from tangles and creasing. But it will maintain her style and shape. The foldable versions are best for traveling!

    5. A suitcase for everyone. Hair extensions and hair pieces are a great way to add the fullness and volume you deserve while allowing you to change up your look. Traveling with them has never been easier! The Bellami Hair Extensions Carrier & Hanger lets you safely stow-away hair extensions, while protecting them from damage. And the Bellami Hair Extensions Hanger keeps your extensions free from tangles.

    6. The right products for the right occasion. Wigs require special care products… even on vacation. And depending on where you’ll be, the right products may not be available. The Try Me Kit for Synthetic Hair by BeautiMark is a line of special daily care products that make it easy to take just what you need on vacation. The 20 ounce bottles are perfect for travel and safe on both synthetic and human hair fiber.

    Take a look at our previous for more information on how Keep Your Alternative Hair In Tip-Top Shape.

    We all need to get away! Hopefully you get to do it often. However, no matter the frequency, make sure you are prepared. Let your hair work for you and not the other way around. Keep yourself as low maintenance as possible… but by all means…. Look good doing it!

    There’s no greater feeling than when we know we're having an amazing hair day!

    Wigs make every day a great hair day. But just how much should you spend for great hair?

    1. Not all wigs are created equal.

    Premium features like lace-front and human hair can make all the difference in how natural your hair looks and feels. But just because one feature is more expensive than another doesn’t make it the right choice for you.

    2. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

    Did you know that a good quality cap can take up to 30 hours to make! The meticulous craftsmanship that goes into each hand-made design ensures wearing your favorite, cute style feels like wearing nothing at all. Learn more about Cap Construction here.

    3. Not having to spend hours in the salon chair…Priceless.

    Think about the time suck of your last salon visit. Remember the anxiety of hoping they get the cut right? The awkwardness of convincing yourself that “It’s just a haircut” when they didn’t?

    Higher-end wigs are all about giving you the perfect salon look without a trip to the salon. You get just the style you want. And because the denier and texture of quality synthetic hair looks and feels so much like human hair, human hair wigs are not your only option. Checkout out our previous post about synthetic and human hair to find out which is really the best choice for you.

    Having a great hair day is like a perfectly timed, witty comeback. You feel like you can take on the world. Give yourself permission to feel as great as you know you are. You’re totally worth it!

    First, we’d like to give thanks to Ellen Wille for the exclusive opportunity to work with them behind the scenes of their lavish photo shoot on this collection.

     

     

    Perucci is the next generation of wigs! Inspired by the rebellious, young and creative, this Collection highlights gorgeous long styles and exciting short cuts. These new envogue styles are defined by their inspiring color shades and natural rooted effects.

     

     

    Everyone loves Carrie! With its beautifully straight hair and bold fringe, it’s not hard to see why. Every great wig begins with the cap (the material the hair is attached to). And what makes this synthetic wig one to be admired is the mono-crown construction. Each hair is individually weaved into the crown, giving any woman the look of hair naturally flowing out of her own scalp, which is just that right touch of something special that makes this long look adorable.

     

     

    Be curious for more in Load-a voluminous and feminine, shoulder-length look made of synthetic fiber. The cap features a monoparting crest, which means you get a natural part in a beachy wave style that’s always ready to go. We bet you’ll get loads of compliments in this one!

     

     

    Looking forward to new styles? Point is an adorable asymmetrically cropped cut that lifts up the texture at the crown, then descends into a sharp bang as it gets straight to the point. Featuring a mono-crown curl, you get a natural part and the illusion of hair growing naturally from your own scalp. If you’re feeling up to it, let it rock in this color (hotflame mix) for a bold rebellious statement.

     

     

    Get ready for the next step. Echo is another rockstar that’s loud and glorious. This synthetic modern bob style with long pony parts delivers a girlishly feminine and flirty look with glam rock style. It features a lacefront with monoparting crest to give you a look that makes the hair appear as if its growing out of your own scalp with a natural part. This is a style you’ll want to wear again and again.

     

     

    Wiki is like a refreshing breeze. It’s a mid-length that strikes a perfect balance between a short and long style. The basic cap means you get open wefting for ventilation to help keep your scalp cool. The natural-looking beach curls offer a slightly messy style that’s chic and easy to maintain, perfect for those without a lot of time for styling. Don’t miss out on this fun curly beauty!

    Always the trendsetter in wigs, these new styles from the Perucci Collection promises that Ellen Wille will never to be outdone. You’ll always be a step ahead in the Perucci Next Generation Wigs!

    Brought to you by the experts at:

    Human hair that is used in the alternative hair industry goes through extensive processing for sorting, coloring, texturizing, etc. before it is attached to the base of a wig, hair system, or extension. Due to this processing, alternative human hair must be cared for differently than biological hair. Following proper care and product recommendations will help you protect your investment and have a successful experience with your human hair piece:

    Jon Renau recommends washing your wig or hairpiece every 6-8 wears

    The common misconception about care is that by washing your wig/hair system more often, the cap and fiber will not last as long. On the contrary, washing every 6-8 wears ensures you are removing the sweat, make up, and oils from your skin that sit within the elastic base of the cap and break down the cap much faster.

    Deep condition your human hair wig or hairpiece every 3-5 washes to keep the vitality of the human hair

    Keep away from any hand-tied areas of the base when applying conditioners, conditioning treatments, or any oil-based products. These products can loosen the hand-tied knots over time and cause hair loss in your wig/hair system.

    Use care products that are specifically formulated for alternative hair
    Although professional salon products are formulated and work great for biological hair, alternative human hair requires different care. It is essential to use only products that are specifically formulated for alternative human hair and refrain from using salon or drugstore care products.

    Use professional styling tools
    Whether the hair is wet or dry it is important to take special care when removing tangles. We recommend using a brush with plenty of cushion in the base and flexible wide-spaced bristles. This design prevents excessive pulling that causes breakage in the hair, in the knots or in the delicate area of the lace front or monofilament.

    Our pick: Jon Renau Paddle Brush

    When blow drying, we recommend using a boar bristle brush with about 20% nylon bristles to adequately grab the hair without creating too much tension. Additionally, the brush’s nylon bristles must be longer than the boar bristles in order to help smooth the hair and ensure a sleek finish.

     

    Our pick: Jon Renau Round Boar Bristle Brush

    This brush is intended for use on human hair only, not traditional or high heat synthetic fibers.

    Use professional grade heat-styling tools
    Professional grade tools are meant to deliver well-distributed heat without causing damage to the hair via their ceramic or tourmaline plates versus the less expensive metal or glass plates found in lower quality tools. The digital temperature settings on professional heat-styling tools also ensure you are working at the correct temperature all the time. To help maintain the integrity of the hair, your styling tools should be set no higher than 350° F when working with human hair.

    We recommend only using non-sticking protectants and styling sprays that prevent heat damage to your human hair wig or hair piece.

    Our pick: Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray
