    Place an order for a great wig at a really cheap price online? Chances are it’s too good to be true. Check first!

    Chinese knock off sites use clever schemes to take money from their victims annually. The knock off industry is a BIG business worth as much as $461 billion according to an April 2016 post from CNN.com. Consumers fall for the allure of high ticket items at drastically reduced prices. Often they are left with nothing at all, or a far inferior product than the advertisement they clicked on.

    The wig industry is not immune. Customers are taken in by beautiful images of name brand wigs and extensions offered at deep discounts. Instead, they receive fake products or may not receive anything at all. And once the transaction is complete, it’s nearly impossible for them to get their money back.

    What can you do to protect yourself?

    If the deal looks too-good-to-be-true, it very well may be. Unless it is a site you know is an established U.S. company, do a little checking on your great deal. Often these scammers use the image of celebrities (regularly stolen from across the web) to make you believe that you will receive the same look once you click on their product.

    - We recommend that you shop with the names you’re already familiar with and trust. These companies are established and can be held accountable by the Federal Trade Commission and the BBB. Make sure there is a U.S. presence which can be reached by phone. Call it. Make sure you are speaking to a person who sounds like they are here in the US.
    - Be on the lookout for Celebrity photos or photos with wigs or celebrities which don’t have a name or brand listed on each photo. Anytime there is a photo of a celebrity (or any model) hairstyle and not a wig… you can be sure you are getting a knockoff.
    - Price is certainly a factor. Unless it is a clearance item on a reputable website designed to clear a few styles and or colors… it is unlikely any wig is going to be sold for discounts 50% or higher. When the entire selection of wigs are at such discounts, it’s a tell-tale sign of a knock off site.
    - Payment options - if the site has a western union and/or wire transfers as payment options… look out!

    Of course, these are some of the biggest flags to look for in protecting your shopping experience. The Scam sites are getting more sophisticated but you can still spot them if you are on the lookout for them. Sites like Wigsbuy.com, Wigsis.com, wigsfly.com, and many more are taking millions from consumers every year. We found these and several more sites to beware of on www.wigs-scam-alert.com.

    There are predators loose within the wig industry. They are taking advantage of the growing popularity of wigs….and so many unsuspecting women. It isn’t right but it isn’t being stopped. Do the only thing we can… speak up and spread the word. If you’ve been fleeced by these scam sites, let us hear about your experience.

    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.

     Jon Renau EasiHair

    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!

    JRJulianneRWUpstageEWCodeMonoRPAngelicaRPCameron

    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!
