    Wavy hair goes with warm weather like surfboards and picnic baskets. Low maintenance yet stylish, this summertime go-to is popular and looks great in any season. But how do you get that effortlessly tousled look? It’s fast and easier than you think. Check out our tutorial and easy step-by-step guide for getting the Perfect Loose Wave with Spirit by Ellen Wille!

     

    We’ll be demonstrating on Spirit, which is part of the new Prime Power collection by Ellen Wille. Due to it’s unique blend of human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber, Prime hair can be heat styled up to 350 degrees. You’ll also need a 1 inch curling iron. We used the 1” Professional Ceramic Spring Iron by Gold N Hot. (Want to watch as we style? Check out our video on How To Style Prime Hair.)

    Step 1: Set your curling iron to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees. Any higher will melt the fibers.

     

     

    Step 2: The secret to perfecting this style is leaving the ends straight. Start by taking a 1 inch width piece of hair from the part and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron leaving about 2 inches uncurled. *Note-We are using a standard barrel curling iron. You can achieve the same look by using a curling wand which won’t clip the hair.)

     

     

    Step 3: Twist the curling iron away from your face to create an outward curl.

     

     

    Step 4: Hold for about 5-10 seconds.

     

     

    Step 5: Pull the barrel lower on the curl and hold for another 2-3 seconds.

     

     

    Step 6: Gently pull the curl as you remove the curling iron from the hair.

     

     

    Step 7: Repeat this process working your way around your head until you arrive at the other side of the part.

     

     

    Step 8: Run your fingers through your hair a few times to soften the curls.

     

     

    Step 9: Now you have the perfect loose wave!

    DAY 33

    It’s raining cats and dogs and as I pull into work my wig looks perfect. This is a big deal because I styled it all by myself and I am not the best at primping my own hair. It’s a short and dark, one length wig from Louis Ferre made of human hair. The quality is amazing! At first the lace wouldn't lay down properly on my forehead so I thought it may be defective. But it's almost like it just figured out my head shape because after I styled it (flat ironed the waves which took me too long!) the hair feels incredible and looks great!

     

    DAY 38

    I’ve noticed that no matter how secure I know my wig is I keep touching it to make sure it hasn’t ridden up. I’m not sure if this is a nervous habit I developed because it took a couple of weeks for me to get the 'putting on' process down. But once I start tugging my hair underneath begins moving. I made a conscious effort not to touch it and trust it is where it belongs. I found myself still doing mirror checks just to be sure.

     

    DAY 41

    Three days later and the not-tugging-on-my-wig-to-make-sure-it’s-in-place effort is working like a dream. What a difference! It turns out the problem was my own insecurity about my wig moving. Today was my first real experience with cold set, which is when a wig sits in a box a long time, or is exposed to extreme temperatures while in the box. It sets the hair in a weird shape, (usually on top or in front). I learned to spritz it down with water, rub my hands together vigorously and touch it up. The heat from your hands resets the hair!

     

    DAY 46

    I'm learning so many things about hair color. The only thing that's changed on me over the last month or so has been my hair. But there’s a difference in the way I’m treated depending on which color I choose for the day. I received the most compliments on my hair as a brunette. I feel the most at home in this color. The consensus seems to be that I look younger, "classier" was the word used. But as a blonde I received more concessions: men allowed me to go first in line; I got little extras at the counter; and (of course) I got looked at. Even women were giving me the “once over”. Each color has its advantage for sure.

    DAY 13

    I have to say not having to do my hair every morning sure is nice. It takes about three minutes to brush it back and put a wig on. Loving it! And note to self… I have decided I DO NOT like nylon wig caps. The little band starts to hurt my head after about three or four hours. I don't think my head is too big, but maybe I should measure it anyway. I have learned NOT to comb my hair straight back. It makes my head sore with the wig on like when you wear a really tight ponytail all day. But when I comb my hair over to the side and pull it back it feels much better all day!

     

    DAY 19

    Nope. My head is regular size. I'm learning never to brush my wig from the top down. I find I get much better results when I use my fingers or the BeautiMark comb. It looks way more natural! I picked up my kids in a long dark wig that was the same color as my natural hair and my daughter was so excited. She said I look like her! She kept staring at me and said I looked so much different than I have been lately. Isn’t it amazing how hair can make such a difference in the way we are perceived?

     

    DAY 24

    Speaking of perceptions, the question people keep asking me is, “Is it hot?” I guess that's the general perception. In fact, it is one of the top questions almost everyone asks when I talk about wearing wigs. The truth is it really isn't hot. Not the good ones anyway! Of course, I'm mindful that the Texas 100° months are behind me so I'm sure anything is hot then. However, so far, the wigs are really very breathable and comfortable. I had squeaky clean hair today. It was straight which helped my wig slip on easier. I put a little hair spray on my head around the front to help it stay in place. Oh, and I also tried the nylon again. I really didn't like it before. But I snipped a little slit in the elastic band and it works great. It holds my hair back but doesn't press in on my head!

     

    DAY 31

    So today I asked everyone in the office to join me in my challenge by wearing a wig for the day so they too can understand our clients a little better! It was so much fun seeing people try on this lifestyle for a day. It was very enlightening for some people, and it might've started an addiction for others. Although I work here, I don't have access to see every color we have every week. So I ordered one based on the color I saw online. When I got it, it looked a little different than it did online. However, once I put it on and went outside it looked more like the color online under natural light. Now I know what my clients are talking about when they have this issue.

Whether caring for human hair or synthetic hair, rely on BeautiMark for the highest quality product free of toxic parabens. Plus accessories and styling tools – all to keep your wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions looking beautiful. Love your hair - with BeautiMark! Because great hair deserves great care.

    BeautiMark

    With thousands of hair care products on the market, it has always been a big challenge to find products that actually address the specific needs of synthetic and human hair wigs, hair pieces, and hair extensions. Enter BeautiMark. Finally the wait is over. After extensive research Beautimark launched the first ever Paraben-Free hair care system for synthetic hair in 2007, then launched Pure Care for Processed Human Hair in 2009. With a central focus on toxic-free hair care products, BeautiMark aims to produce quality alternative hair products without the use of parabens, suspected cancer causing substances, in their ingredients.

    No one understands the unique needs of wigs, hairpieces and extensions better than Beautimark. With the perfect balance of science and nature, Beautimark has produced hair care lines which are healthy, without sacrificing beauty.

    What are Parabens? Parabens are a group of synthetic preservatives widely used in personal care products. Some scientific studies have linked parabens to negative health effects including endocrine system damage, allergic reactions and even breast cancer.

    Unlike most alternative care products on the market, BeautiMark™ Hair Care products are developed free of toxic parabens.

    SYNTHETIC HAIR

    Synthetic hair has different properties than real hair which means it requires special care products. To keep your synthetic wigs looking beautiful and to extend the life of the fiber, we recommend using special shampoos, conditioners and styling products specifically formulated for synthetic hair.

    BeautiMark For Synthetic Hair

    The BeautiMark™ Hair Care System for Synthetic Hair is the best choice when it comes to washing and styling synthetic wigs. Each product was formulated by studying synthetic hair fibers and how they interact with cleaning, conditioning and styling agents.

    HUMAN HAIR

    Human hair wigs are chemically processed to achieve the most natural look, texture and different color variations. This is why using the proper products is key to achieve long, lasting beauty.

    BeautiMark For Human Hair

    The Pure Care System by BeautiMark™ is sulfate-free and specially formulated to address the needs of all chemically processed hair, including human hair wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions. We recommend using the entire Pure Care System for best results to increase the life expectancy and protect the color of your human hair.
