    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!

    We always want to look and feel our best. Warmer temperatures doesn’t mean you have to give up your style.

    Here are 5 of our Wig Expert tips to help you look hot, but stay cool!

    Go Capless.

    1. There are many different types of cap construction. But if keeping cool as a cucumber is your main goal...

    Basic Cap & Capless

    Basic and Capless are lightweight designs that allow air to flow more freely, which is certainly a smart choice! Checkout this video for more information about basic and capless wigs.

    Go Synthetic.

    2. Synthetic wigs are perfect for getting style that lasts. Zero styling hassle makes synthetic wigs a no-brainer for a girl on the go! With the amazing innovations in synthetic fiber, they are nearly undetectable from human hair. And because the fiber is light, you’ll look hot without being hot.You may be interested in our previous post where we compare synthetic and human hair options.

    Go Short.

    3. Face it... Short is Chic! Sporting a great short cut can definitely spice up your look while keeping hair off your neck. Summer is the perfect time to give them a try. Take a look at our collection of short, capless wigs.

    Does giving up your long locks fill you with as much anxiety as the thought of being separated from your phone? We hear ya! Try braiding your hair. There are tons of fun styles that make braids an ideal option for long wigs. And you get more control, as well as a more natural look than you do with a ponytail.

    Go Protected.

    Daily Protect Leave-In Spary

    4. We wear sunglasses to protect our eyes from the sun’s UV rays. In the same way misting your wig with a daily protecting, leave-in spray once or twice throughout the day will protect it from the sun. Checkout our care products to keep your wig in tip top shape all year long.

    Don’t Sweat It!

    5. Wanna know a wig wearer's best kept secret? Sweat liners! We recommend the No Sweat Liner by HEADLINE IT! Not only are they great at wicking away perspiration to keep you dry and comfortable, but the hygienic liner reduces odor causing bacteria. Best of all, it’s disposable.

    Although we can't eliminate the heat for you… We hope these tips help keep you looking and feeling a little cooler.

    Women going through the beginning, mid/progressive, or advanced stages of hair loss have different and unique coverage needs.

    Stages of Hair Loss

    Women in the beginning stage experience minimal hair loss that can be either temporary or permanent. Women’s hair loss usually begins in a diffused pattern on top of the head. At this stage, women with fine, thin hair may not need to resort to a full wig or hair system; a hair topper can successfully cover the areas with less density.

    For women in the beginning stage of hair loss who are looking to add coverage and volume to the crown and back of the head, Jon Renau recommends our newest addition to our topper collection: easiCrown.

     

    fine mono basePlacement AreaeasiCrown

     

    easiCrown’s base design is a fine mono base with a PU (Polyurethane) perimeter. The strategically placed clips create security while the contour gives this piece the ability to lie flat on your head and blend seamlessly into your hair.

    This one-piece volumizer can be heat-styled to create any look.  It is available in 12” & 18” lengths in both high heat synthetic fiber (HD fiber) and remy human hair.

    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!

    The proper size cap goes a long way when it comes to ensuring the most natural look and feel of your wig. While average size wigs will fit 95% of wig wearers, a number of wigs also come in petite and large sizes. Knowing the measurements of your head will help you select a wig that’s the perfect fit for you.

    Determining the Size of Your Head

    In order to do this, you will need:

    • a tape measure
    • a piece of paper
    • and something to write with

    1. Start by measuring the circumference of your head. With the tape measure at your front hairline, guide the tape measure down the side of your head behind your ear continuing to the nape of your neck underneath the occipital bone (which is the bone that protrudes from the back of your head), then behind the other ear until you’re back to the front hairline, and jot down the measurement.

    1. Then measure ear to ear by first establishing the top most part of your head. Do this by measuring 7 inches back from your front hairline. This is the point where the tape measure will need to pass as you measure ear to ear. Guide the tape measure from the hairline of one ear through the top most part of your head, to the hairline of the other ear and jot this measurement down.

    1. Finally, measure front to back by holding the tape measure at the front hairline, then run it all the way to your back hairline. Jot this measurement down, then consult the table below.

     

    In general, the size of your head will fall into one of the categories above. But don’t worry if your measurements don’t match up to any of the standard sizes. Choose the wig size indicated by the largest measurement you wrote down.

    Finding Your Cap Size On Our Website

    To see all of our wigs by size, go up to the tabs menu and hover over the “wigs” tab, which will give you a drop down menu. The third column in the drop down menu will be our Cap Sizes. From here you can select Petite, Average, or Large to see every wig available in the cap size you want.

    *note: Everyone’s head is its own unique shape. Most wigs come with a feature to help you adjust the wig for a more custom fit.

    Wigs have come a long way since your grandmother’s day! The new advancements in alternative hair technology come together to deliver the most contemporary styles making it impossible to tell the difference between a wig and natural hair.  

    But, before you consider style and color, it’s important to find the best cap to suit your needs so you can fully enjoy your wig.

    The Base

    The wig cap or base, is the material the wig hairs are attached to. Newer caps are lighter and more durable to give you a more comfortable fit and a look that’s completely natural. There are four basic types of cap features you should be familiar with next time you’re looking for a wig. Each one has its particular advantages, and unique technique by which hair is attached.

    4 Types of Cap Features

    100% Hand-tied

    Also known as 100% hand-knotted, these comfortable and lightweight caps are among the very best available. Each hair is individually hand-tied to the cap to create the most natural movement. This allows the hairs to move freely, and you get the added bonus of styling versatility which allows you to comb the hair in any direction. It has the softest and smoothest base which contours to the scalp, giving a near custom fit; ideal for sensitive scalps or hair loss.

    Monofilament

    There are two types of monofilament tops:

    •  A full mono top allows for parting and styling versatility.
    •  A double mono top gives an extra layer of soft material for added comfort (perfect for sensitive skin or scalps).

    This is a wonderful option that offers very natural hair growth from the scalp where the hair is parted. The monofilament can be found just at the crown, along a pre-defined part or across the full top of the wig. Similar to the 100% hand-tied caps, each hair is individually hand-tied to a sheer base (but not the entire cap).

    Lace front

    These caps are more popular than ever! Once very expensive and found only on Hollywood productions, they are now much more accessible. Made of delicate materials that should be handled with care, the lace goes from temple-to-temple, or are extended from ear-to-ear and designed to blend in with a variety of skin tones. Each hair is individually tied to the cap, but like monofilament wigs (not to the entire cap).  This allows for styling the hair away from the face while maintaining the illusion of a natural front hair line. Most are ready-to-wear and don’t require tape or adhesive for attachment.

    Basic cap

    These are the most durable and affordable wig caps. They include both cap-less and traditional constructions, identified by the open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation. A weft is a curtain of hair sewn onto the cap. The hair on these caps are pre-teased at the root to mask the cap beneath, which often gives the hair natural volume at the crown.

    You may find that some styles incorporate more than one cap feature, some even vary by brand. Knowing about these cap features will help you choose wigs that are more comfortable and better suited for your needs.
