    Gabor is about everyday beauty that comes from elegant, short styles. So what does that mean for this legendary line’s new collection?


    The Spring 2016 Collection comes in 5 new styles: Radiant Beauty, Soft and Subtle, Lasting Impression, and High Impact which are constructed with natural front hairlines and special monofilament features from the Gabor Luxury Collection. Sublime features FlexLite® modacrylic synthetic fiber, and the Gabor® Personal Fit™ Cap which uses thin yet resilient stretch material that molds to the shape of your head and is part of the Gabor Next Collection.


    • Sublime is styled with a slight wave and added texturizing for fresh, breezy movement that gives you endless styling options.


    • Radiant Beauty is designed to let your personality shine with a “scrunched” texture and long layers of free-formed curls to give you a look that’s always in trend.


    • Soft and Subtle is a flattering cut for many face shapes and features tumbled waves in a blunt bob so that you get a stylized look that’s also casual.


    • Lasting Impression offers you a modern cut that's natural looking and believable with its smooth wave on top and uneven layers cut around the ends.


    • High Impact is a look with stunning effect that’s achieved by layered waves which give you natural body for a flattering shape and a face-framing eyelash bang that comes in at just the right moment for the finishing touch.


    Our favorite is Soft and Subtle. This bob is so much fun with its layered waves that give just the right amount of length. It’s truly a style that looks good on anyone and feels very light. We love the fact that the medium length makes it a simple style that’s manageable and can be worn every day. Yet it’s very chic. We feel it strikes that perfect balance between being too tame and too messy which is very in trend right now.

    If there’s one thing we know, it’s that our clients desire wigs and hairpieces that allow personalization and comfort. But how do you find one that ticks both boxes and doesn’t end up looking, well…wiggy?

    Inspired by international fashion trends, Ellen Wille introduces the Prime Power Collection to It’s like nothing you’ve ever felt before, and here’s 5 things we love about this new collection:


    1.       It’s Human Hair – Enhanced!

    Prime Power is designed for the woman with discerning taste. The unique blend of high quality human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber makes Prime a standout in the luxury hair market.  With the look and feel of human hair combined with the stylability of synthetic hair, you truly get the best of both worlds!


    2.       Longer Lasting Style

    Illusion by Ellen Wille | Color: Auburn Rooted

    Illusion by Ellen Wille | Color: Champagne Rooted
















    Prime Hair is perfect for the woman on the go! What we love is that Prime Hair means never having to trade off style for convenience. The premium synthetic fiber withstands heat of up to 350 degrees, and the unique blend of human and synthetic hair means the style holds even longer (even after washing!)

    3.       Color Vibrancy

    Mood by Ellen Wille |  Color: Chocolate  Mix

    Mood by Ellen Wille | Color: Ginger Blonde Mix
















    There’s nothing worse than dull looking color! Ellen Wille recognizes that each color has different needs in order to maintain its optimal long lasting vibrancy. That’s why the blend of synthetic hair to human hair in the Prime Power collection is different for each color to create the perfect result for your individual style.


    4.       Premium Cap Construction

    Spirit by Ellen Wille | Color: Champagne Rooted

    Spirit  by  Ellen  Wille  |  Color:  Espresso  Mix
















    When it comes to looking natural and feeling comfortable, the cap construction plays a major role! Known for innovation, Ellen Wille’s Illusion, Spirit and Mood in this collection feature a very thin hand-knotting to provide the most natural look. The lace front blends seamlessly into the front part to replace the well-known monofilament, which gives you the look of natural hair growth along the hairline. And the caps are adjustable and lightweight to give that extra bit of comfort.


    5.       More Than Just Wigs

    True by Ellen Wille | Color: Espresso Mix

    Real by Ellen Wille | Color: Mocca Mix















    Included in the Prime Power Collection is True which is an ultra-lightweight, face framing bang with a monofilament base and three pressure sensitive clips that give you a secure fit. Want volume? Real is the perfect feathery and fine top piece that gives you added volume that seamlessly integrates with your own hair.


    We tried Ellen Wille’s new collection and we loved styling it with our heat tools [look for this in our upcoming blog post]. The cap construction made the wigs feel so light that we liked running our fingers through  it. The colors were amazing!  We love the lighter shades in the long wigs like Spirit and Illusion and for short styles like Mood, brunette shades looked absolutely gorgeous!

    How-to: Rediscover Your Curls

    Curls are a girl’s best friend! What we love about curly wigs, like Jamila Hi by Ellen Wille, is that they're always fun, fabulous and on-trend. The key to maintaining your curls and keeping them frizz-free is all in how you re-style your wig. Love your curls back to their bouncy, healthy shape with our easy, 5 step guide on How To Re-Style Your Curly Wig!

    You will need:

    • A wig head Stand
    • Hair Trix Wide Tooth Wig Comb by BeautiMark
    • Brilliant Shine by BeautiMark
    • A Hair net



    Step 1: Use a wide toothed comb to detangle a section at a time starting from the end of the hair to prevent breakage. (We recommend detangling small sections for smaller curls and larger sections for bigger curls.)


    Step 2: Then using the Brilliant Shine by Beautimark lightly mist the detangled section to give a little sheen and some softness to the fiber.


    Step 3: Using your finger, twist the curls back in place. If the curl does not achieve a natural shape, try curling it again in the opposite direction.


    Step 4: Move around small sections until you have the entire wig curled.

    *Note-If the curl does not achieve a natural shape, try curling it again in the opposite direction.






    Step 5: You can use a hair net to keep your finished work in place


    Once you’re done you’ll have those amazing curls once again.

    Day 48

    It's confirmed, blondes do get more attention. But surprisingly it was as a redhead that I received the most flirts. Maybe redheads are more approachable? I love having the luxury of choice so much that I’ve decided to go past my 30 day commitment. Wigs feel so much like another accessory that I now plan outfits around different styles and colors. This must be how women in the 50's and 60's felt as wigs and hair was the ultimate accessory used to finish a look. Except, the hair quality is phenomenally better now!!!


    DAY 52

    I was at the airport today and as I walked through security I began thinking about setting off alarms. Would I have to take my wig off? I began playing through different ways I could deflect embarrassment. I got through okay, but that brief moment of apprehension stayed with me. It left me thinking about the anxiety a woman who’s not yet ready to reveal to the world that she wears a wig must feel in such a situation. It’s such a shame that there are women who wear or want to wear wigs that fear being stigmatized.


    DAY 65

    You know you're in love with something when you can't put it away! I decided to extend my wig wearing adventure until the end of the year. But as 2015 came to a close and 2016 began, I found myself still reaching for a wig in the morning. I never thought I would feel this way about wigs. They appeal to the side of me that’s gotten spoiled by having perfect hair every day. Seriously, I haven't been to the hairdresser in quite a while (saved some money there too). So it looks like I'll be wearing wigs for another 14 days until I can get my hair done.


    DAY 80+

    Going through this journey has helped me arrive at a new appreciation for my clients, especially the women that wear wigs daily as a necessity. What I love most about wigs is their extraordinary ability to transform your mood, and confidence level, in an instant! Whether you’re new to wigs or an experienced wig wearer, I hope this piece has been helpful. I would love to get your feedback. Please feel free to share your wig experience below and I look forward to sharing with you all again.

    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

    Spirit by Ellen Wille | Auburn Rooted













    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.
