Tips & Tricks

    Own a convertible car? Like to walk on the beach? Feel like your wig is going to fly off in the wind?
     Here are some great tips - straight from The Wig Experts!

    1) Try the Sure Grip by BeautiMark for lasting comfort and security.

    2) Try sewing toupee clips into the fabric wefting of your wig (not a monofilament or hand-tied wig). If you know how to use a needle and thread, you can do this! Just be careful and gentle. This will add extra security by fastening the wig to your own hair, just like hair extensions do.

    Let's face it, we all sweat in the summer. If you like to wear long wigs, you may really be feeling the heat. How do you beat the heat? ...

    Try braiding your wig. Simply pull the length of the wig to the side. Then braid the hair loosely, or affix a hair elastic every inch or so along the length. Advanced braiders can even try creating a fishtail plait; these look way more complicated than they actually are to do. Secure the braid or fishtail with a ribbon, hair elastic, or bobby pin.
    And voila! This gets the hair off your neck. You’ll look summer sweet and nix the sticky wig caused by sweat!

    MYTH: I have to wash my wig as often as I wash my own hair.

    FACT: The general rule of thumb is wash every 7-10 wearings, but it depends on the environment and the amount of styling products you use. If you use styling products like the shaping creme or hairspray on your wig every day, you'll need to wash and revitalize your wig more often than those who do not use products. Also, if you live in a very rainy or humid climate, you may also need to wash your wig more often.

    Because wigs do not have the benefit of natural oils like our own hair, the less you wash – the better! But wear your wig too long without washing it and it can look old and dingy. To refresh and wash your wigs (whether synthetic or human hair), use BeautiMark brand of shampoos, conditioners, and other styling products.

    EEK! Don’t let this happen to you :

    It’s summertime and Raquel Welch’s lace front doesn’t match her newly bronzed skin. Even wig divas like Raquel get it wrong sometimes, so no worries. How do you insure against this wig faux pas?...

    TIP:  If you get a tan, your lace front should match! Try dabbing a damp tea bag onto the lace material so it dyes the lace of the wig to match. The more you dab, the darker the color. The pros have been doing this simple and easy trick for years! You can even have two lace front wigs - one to match your tan summer skintone and one to match your more pale winter skintone.

    Just like clothing, hairstyles can be slimming too!
    Of course the style or cut of your wig won't actually slim your face - it's all an illusion, right? But to give your face a more slender appearance, follow these simple rules:

    1. Avoid straight lines in your cut. Choose a wig with more shapely curves that compliment and soften the face shape, instead of working against it. This will also draw attention to facial features such as your eyes and lips in a good way.

    2. Avoid straight-across bangs. Though blunt cut bangs may still be in style, they tend to shorten and widen the appearance of the face. Show off your forehead (where we don't gain weight). Try side-swept bangs instead as they will make your face appear longer and thinner.

    3. Avoid blunt haircuts. Blunt hairstyles like the geometric bob cut that Katie Holmes and Rihanna have worn will harshen your features and widen your face. Instead, opt for a longer, textured and layered cut. Go for softness and movement.
