    Pantene Beautiful Lengths - National Donate Your Hair Day

    When we heard about the first-ever nationwide call to chop off our locks for someone who has lost their hair to cancer treatments, we were happy to see the awareness reach a national level. We were ecstatic when we found out two employees from the Wigs.com family were willing to participate! Donating hair for wigs is a wonderful opportunity for us to give back and help those who need it the most. Participating is important to Wigs.com because we want to set an example by supporting the first national day designated to donate hair for wigs.

    National Donate Hair Day

    Pantene and Seventeen Magazine teamed up to host this first national event which will benefit the Beautiful Lengths program. For those of you who don’t know, Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society that encourages women (and men) to grow, cut and donate hair to make wigs for cancer patients. The hair donated today will be used to craft beautiful, high-quality wigs by HAIRUWEAR®. This company manufactures wigs for brands like Raquel Welch®, Gabor and Hairdo among many others.

    Why Donate Hair for Wigs?

    As we all know, human hair doesn't grow on trees, so the demand for human hair wigs is extremely high - donating your hair is a great way to help those women in need. We encourage all of you to make the ‘kindest cut of all’ and help make a difference. So please, think about it & donate hair!

    If your hair is too short at the moment (8 inches minimum), you have a whole year to grow it!

    Wigs.com Gives Back!

    Donate Hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths FAQ’s


    How long must my hair be to donate?

    The ponytail must be at least 8 inches long (no maximum length). Although some charities will accept less than 8 inches, these ponytails cannot be used effectively to make a wig.

    If your hair is wavy or curly, measure it when straight.

    Can I donate dyed or color treated hair?

    Pantene Beautiful Lengths requires “virgin” hair, this means hair that is free of permanent color, bleach or other chemical treatments such as Japanese straightening. Since each ponytail comes from a different person with a different shade of hair, it is important to absorb dyes at the same rate in order to create a wig of the same shade of color. Only virgin hair can be processed and then dyed to the same shade.

    The same goes for gray hair – no more than 5% gray hair is recommended. It is harder to color and, once colored, fades more quickly.

    Back in the olden days, lace only existed on your grandma’s dress. Nowadays lace is everywhere, even on wigs! Although lace is mainly known as a fabric to make clothing, this type of material has been included in the cap construction of wigs to create what are known as lace front wigs.

    What are lace front wigs?

    Diagram of Jon Renau lace front wig

    Example of a Jon Renau lace front wig diagram

    Wigs made with a thin sheer lace base at the hairline are called lace front wigs. This characteristic is important because it gives your wig a natural looking hairline. Not only does a lace front mimic natural hair growth at the hairline, but it also allows you to style the hair off the face without revealing the wig. This is what helps your wig look… well, not so wiggy. Although some wigs can be entirely made with lace, most generally only have the lace at the hairline, which can extend either from temple-to-temple or ear-to-ear.

    Did you know that many wigs come with a ready-to-wear lace front wigs? Most people are intimidated by lace front wigs thinking they require a lot of time and preparation before wearing them. However, temple-to-temple ready to wear lace front wigs arrive precut out of the box. That means less time fussing with your wig and more time for fun! Think of ready-to-wear wigs like ready-to-wear fashion. They’re meant to be worn without any alterations.

    Check out these frequently asked questions The Wig Experts have answered below.

    Lace Front Wigs FAQs

    Limelight Raquel Welch wig

    Limelight by Raquel Welch

    Can you see the lace front?

    OK, first of all, the lace fabric used in wigs is not like your granny’s lace dress. The lace used is a sheer and fine net-like material that has a seamless barely-there appearance.

    So don’t worry, you won’t be sporting a “vintage” looking wig.

    Do I have to cut the lace on my wig?

    The great thing about a temple-to-temple lace front wig is that they’re ready-to-wear – absolutely no cutting necessary! If you purchase an ear-to-ear (professional) lace front you will have to get it professionally cut. But most lace front wigs are ready-to-wear.

    Tip: A lace front is extremely delicate so it should be handled with care. The lace should only be cut with pinking shears; cutting it with regular scissors could make the lace fray and unravel. Just say No, and let a professional help you! Take good care of your investment!!

    Do you have to add tape or adhesive to the lace front wig?

    All temple-to-temple lace front wigs come ready-to-wear.

    Then how does the lace front wig stay on?

    Wigs are designed with adjustable straps, which will adjust the cap into place. These straps (pull, Velcro or clip) help to flatten the lace front into place and won’t lift.

    Note: An ear-to-ear lace front wig is normally known as a “professional lace front wig” because the lace extends 1-2 inches in length. Professional application is recommended to create a custom hairline, which can be secured with tape or adhesive. Read more about it here.

    Fanfare by Raquel Welch wig

    Fanfare by Raquel Welch

    Do I have to apply makeup to the lace front wig?

    Generally the lace front is sheer enough to where it will blend with your skin. However, if you have a darker skin tone you may have to apply a bit of foundation or powder to match to the color of your skin.

    Tip: You can “dye” the lace front using a tea bag. Use a damp tea bag and dab onto the lace until you match it to your skin color. The more you dab the tea bag, the darker the color.

    Hot date – Check.

    Drop-dead gorgeous dress – Check.

    Killer shoes – check Check CHECK!

    Prom is coming up and you're ready for the magical night! But wait a second…  Hair style? (Cue deep sigh.) That’s when you remember you still have no idea how to do your prom hair.

    Have you been avoiding the whole hairdo concept because of how overwhelmed you feel when you think about it? Your hair may not be as long as you wish it were, it might be too thin and drab for an updo or worse yet, you’re experiencing hair loss. We know how you feel. But believe it or not, it’s still possible to get the look you want. So, stop avoiding the issue cause we’re here to help!

    Hair Extensions

    You’ll want to let the neckline of your dress be the guide for the hairstyle you choose. Hair extensions are a great way to add a lot of look in a quick and easy way. When we say you can achieve prom hair in a snap, we mean literally!

    Cute & Simple

    Bellissima braid hairpiece Dancing with the Stars

    If you want to wear your hair down, try this thin fishtail headband. The Bellissima braid is perfect for a spaghetti strap dress. This headband instantly transforms your hairstyle into a super trendy look. Braids were seen everywhere at this year’s red carpet!

    Tip: Tease the hair at the crown to add a bit of height to your hair.

    Bombshell Hair

    easiXtend Elite Remy Human Hair hair extensions by easihair

    Not only does Gisele Bündchen have a killer body (leg envy) but also her hair is in a constant state of perfection. That long beautiful hair is her signature. Not to mention those effortless curls make her look as if she were constantly shooting near a beach! (Obviously we love to hate this woman.) Want the same look sans the sand and humidity? Try the easiXtend remy human hair extensions, available in both 16 and 20 inches. This 8pc extension system perfectly adds the length and volume you need to mimic the bombshell look. This hairstyle compliments all dress necklines.

    Tip: Get the beach waves look by using the Enzo Milano curling iron.

    Glam Updo

    Stylemaker Hairwrap POP

    Updos are the epitome of glamour. But a lot of the times they can look stiff and pageantry. A messy (but chic) updo is the perfect antidote to a dated hairstyle. Simply wrap the Stylemaker hairpiece around your bun and you’re good to go! This hairstyle is particularly perfect for a dress with a high neckline.

    Tip: For EXTRA glam add accessories such as a sparkly barrette or a jeweled headband.

    Pony Up in Style

    The ponytail continues to be all the rage this season! It’s a quick and easy hairstyle that has proven to be just as glamorous as the most intricate of updos. The 23” Wrap Around Pony adds the length you need to be the ‘mane’ beauty of the night. AND this hairpiece is made from heat-friendly synthetic hair so you can add a tighter curl or straighten for a long sleek ponytail. The ponytail is perfect for halter-top necklines, although it will look great with any dress.

    Tip: Update the pony look by teasing at the crown to create a ‘bump’.

     

    Wigging Updos


    If you suffer from hair loss there’s no reason why you shouldn’t still rock the heck out of the prom with a wig. Wigs can look just as good (in some cases better!) than your own natural hair. You have a TON of options to choose from: short to long, straight to curly, synthetic hair or human hair – you name it! In fact, you could even wear your wig in an updo!

    Always by Raquel Welch is the perfect example of how you could wear your wig in a down do! So please don’t let your hair loss get in the way of having a wonderful time at one of the most special nights of your life.

    What's the difference?

    Have you ever found yourself shopping around at Wigs.com only to get stuck on two very similar styles with extremely different price tags? Take these two styles by Jon Renau, other than one being slightly longer than the other, why is there a difference of more than $400 between the two? Simple: Haute is a synthetic hair wig, while Nicole is a human hair wig. But you may still be asking, “Why so much?”

    Haute & Nicole by Jon Renau wigs

    Haute by Jon Renau – synthetic                       Nicole by Jon Renau – human hair

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The simple answer goes back to the basics of economics: supply & demand. As wigs become more commonplace, people are becoming more knowledgeable about the quality of wigs. Human hair wigs are highly coveted by customers; they know human hair wigs are the best, so they want the best. And the number of human hair wig customers keeps increasing every day. There are more people buying these wigs than there are human hair wigs available. You’ve heard the saying “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Well, guess what? Neither does hair.

    Where does it come from?

    Did you know that hair from eight different people is needed to make just ONE human hair wig? That’s right, you read correctly - eight. It may also take up to several weeks to complete one human hair wig. The number of people willing to sell or donate their hair to make wigs is not increasing as fast as the number of people who want to purchase them.

    The human hair used to make these wigs can be Chinese, Indian or Caucasian (European) hair. Chinese and Indian hair is the most durable due to their texture; they can withstand the most chemical processing. Caucasian, or European hair, is desirable because the fine texture is silkier, and feels the most natural.

    What’s so great about human hair?

    When it comes to the most natural look, nothing beats human hair. Nothing looks or feels better than the real thing. Human hair wigs can almost be treated the same as your own hair. You can cut, style – using a blow dryer, straighter and curling iron – and in some cases even dye your human hair wigs. If a natural and versatile look is what you are looking for, you cannot go wrong with a human hair wig. Also, human hair wigs last much longer than synthetic hair wigs – in some cases they can last up to a year!

    The use of remy hair is another reason why the cost is greater. Usually human hair goes through a process called ‘stripping’ in which the hair strand is stripped of its cuticle and forced to fall into an unnatural direction. Although remy hair does go through a cleansing treatment, it does not go through this stripping process. That means the hair strand’s natural protective cuticle layer remains intact, maintaining the hair strand’s natural health and strength. The resulting texture is the closest to your own natural healthy hair. An added plus to remy hair is it provides long-lasting, tangle-free wear.

    Human hair wigs are definitely an investment. This is why you should take extremely good care of your human hair wigs. You paid good money for them so make sure to give them plenty of TLC! If you have questions regarding how to properly care for your human hair wigs, please refer to this helpful guide.

    Raquel Makes It Easy, You Make It Beautiful!

    The wait is over! Raquel Welch’s new coveted line is finally here… And guess what? You get the inside scoop first!

    What’s New?

    The new collection has everything from super comfortable capless constructions to a ravishing human hair wig. Throughout the line we see Raquel’s signature touch, glamour. For someone as famous and busy as Raquel, glamour is a MUST. But what about you and me, you ask? What’s in it for those of us that don’t wake up to paparazzi every day?

    Well, even though we don’t have to be “camera ready” or glamorous 24/7, this collection was made with us in mind, the working woman. This collection delivers beautiful on-trend styles that are comfortable and easy to wear. In reality whether you have to wear wigs due to hair loss or because you like to change up your style, we’re all looking for the same things: beauty & comfort. The stunning ready-to-wear styles make each and every one of these styles a winner in our book. The fact that these wigs are glamorous is a bonus. And let’s face it we could all use a bit of glam in our lives!

    We love Raquel because she walks the talk. Did you know she wears wigs every day? It’s true! In an interview with Charlie Rose and Gayle King, she wore one of her old time favorites, Limelight. And again at her guest appearance on CSI: Miami she wore Limelight & Spotlight. When we had the opportunity of meeting her in New York she was wearing one of her new wigs, Camera-Ready. It was gorgeous! So, if Raquel Welch wears wigs every day, why shouldn’t you?

    Ah... springtime.

    Spring brings to mind the birds & the bees, but if you have one in the oven you've probably been thinking about it a lot longer…

    The Hair

    With the season change, your wardrobe changes and so does the hair. Many of us are trying to come up with a stylish and quick way to change our hairstyle without the use of harsh chemicals - especially if you're pregnant.

    The America College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) say only a small amount of color dye is absorbed through the skin, so it's safe to use during pregnancy. You should still be cautious; the first three months of your pregnancy are the most delicate. Try to limit the use of any chemical until your second trimester.

     

    Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian lightened her hair

     

    Don't want to risk it? No problem, the 'rooted' look is on trend, just ask Rihanna... Just kidding! Although ombre and rooted hair colors are on trend, they're usually much more subtle than Rihanna's obvious hair fail. So, what to do if you don't want chemicals anywhere near your hair? Read on! We're here to help!

    Wigs

    The most obvious of all the solutions would be, of course, a wig. They have come a long way and can look just as natural as your own hair. Also, they're not nearly as hot or heavy as they used to be in the past. Many of them are only two ounces in weight! When your roots are simply too much to ignore, a wig can cover a multitude of (hair) sins.

    Between rushing out the door and the morning sickness - do you really want to worry about doing your hair? No, you don't. That's exactly why wigs are so convenient!

    With so many different options available, you're sure to find the perfect one for you.

    We recommend:

    Entice by Raquel Welch short shag wigEntice by Raquel Welch is a super comfortable short shaggy wig. Just add some styling product and you're ready to go!

     

     

    Angie by Envy short modern bobAngie by Envy is a super modern short cut for the stylish future mommy! The lace front & monofilament top will give you the natural look you desire.

     

     

    Scorpio by Revlon short bob wigScorpio by Revlon is the perfect bob for the chic mom-to-be!

     

     

     

    Enigma by Raquel Welch long wigEnigma by Raquel Welch is a classic mid-length cut with a blunt bang. This wig is comfortable and on trend!

     

     

    Angelique long wig by Jon RenauAngelique by Jon Renau is a popular long layered wig style (available in a large cap). Don't let the length fool you, this classic hairstyle is made from a lightweight fiber.

     

     

    Hair Extensions

     

    Pregnant Jessica Simpson wears hair extensions to add length & volume to her hair

    If you're simply looking to change your hairstyle, you can always incorporate hair extensions or hairpieces to your look. You can add length, volume, and color with extensions. Also, extensions are an awesome solution for the mommy-to-be on a budget!

    We recommend:

    A significant number of men and women are afraid of wearing wigs because of the ‘wiggy’ factor. You know, the one in which you feel like you are wearing a flashing sign announcing to everyone: “I’m wearing a wig! I’m wearing a wig!”

    Obviously no one wants their hair to look like a wig. Unless you’re wearing a huge colorful wig à la Nicki Minaj, you’re probably trying to pass your wig for natural hair. The good news is wig technology has come a long way – just ask Sarah-Catherine, our contest winner. She’s been wearing wigs for many years and has seen the progress wigs have made over time (make sure to check out her interview). The fiber used for quality synthetic wigs is now so realistic, it is a great substitute for human hair. If this isn’t reason enough to convince you of how natural wigs can look, let’s chat about monofilament tops.

    Monofilament Wigs

    Examples of Monofilament Diagrams for Raquel Welch and Jon Renau Wigs

    Examples of Monofilament Diagrams

     

    What’s a monofilament top, you ask? It's simply a term used to describe the materials from which a wig’s cap construction is made. The material mono tops (short for monofilament wigs) are made from consists of a thin, mesh, nylon fabric. This thin material is ideal because it allows plenty of ventilation, which in turn makes the wig cap cool and comfortable. If you’re wearing wigs due to hair loss and you have a sensitive scalp, then this is definitely the best wig cap for you. The filament-like material is ideal for a tender scalp.

    Another advantage to this material is the sheer, skin-like appearance it gives off. The sheer color helps the cap blend in with the color of your skin. This not only disguises the wig’s cap, but also gives the illusion of natural hair growth at the scalp. A double monofilament top has an extra layer of fabric for extra comfort.

    Usually monofilament constructions are hand-tied, but can also be machine-sewn. Because the hair is tied directly onto the mono top, it can be parted in any given direction allowing the movement of the hair to begin at the scalp. Imagine being able to change the style around without the fear of revealing your wig!

    The main difference between hand-tied and machine-sewn is the way the hair or fiber is sewn onto the monofilament mesh material. When a mono top is hand-tied, each hair is individually sewn; a machine-sewn mono top, ties groups of hair together. The advantage of each individual fiber being hand-tied is the natural flowy movement; by contrast when groups of fibers are sewn together the movement is not as free. Think about it, each strand of our hair grows out from the scalp individually, so a hand-tied monofilament mimics the natural hair growth – it’s just as real. Although more expensive, the added bonus for hand-tying each hair is in the way each hair is tightly secured, totally reducing the amount of shedding – making your wig last longer. You get what you pay for, but either technique will give you a super realistic look!

    As you can see there’s truly a wig for every person. You just have to know what you want. Wig constructions will continue to evolve and improve. And we can’t wait to see what comes next!

    Sarah-Catherine is like a breath of fresh air. It’s been a couple of weeks since we announced our contest winner and we had the amazing opportunity to interview her. We conducted our interview via Skype and learned so many wonderful, inspiring things from Sarah-Catherine (or SC for short), we just had to share! We covered everything from her passions in life, to the struggles of growing up with Alopecia. We urge you to read on… and dare you not to love her.
    Interview with Sarah-Catherine
    Wigs.com: Hi Sarah-Catherine! We’d love to get to know you a little bit better, so can you tell us a little bit more about yourself? How would you describe yourself?
    SC: Oh wow, sure! I’m adventuresome, I’m spiritual. I love life and I try to go after it. I’m happily married as of October [2011]. I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas and that’s where I live. It’s part of my identity as well, even though I’ve traveled a lot and gone to school elsewhere, I’m a Little Rock girl.
    Wigs.com: Oh that’s great! Now getting more into the role that wigs play in your life we have a few questions. As a woman when you’re getting dressed and dolled up, what does your routine consist of, involving your wig? Is it easier or does it present a challenge?
    SC: Oh, it’s much easier! I’ve worn wigs for a long time. I don’t remember, probably as a kid I had to do my hair but I’ve seen friends and my mom spend a long time on their hair and that’s a foreign concept to me. My hair has grown back at one point but if it were to grow back again, which is entirely possible, I think I would probably just shave my head and continue to wear wigs. I couldn’t imagine having to blow-dry my hair or curl it. I would never want to add that extra time to my day on a daily basis.
    Wigs.com: You said you’ve needed a wig since you were a kid, do you feel comfortable sharing with us what your hair loss is a result to and why you started wearing wigs?
    SC: In the fourth grade it fell out due to unknown causes, it is referred to as Alopecia. I lost all of my hair and it was really traumatic to me as a kid. The wigs at that time were really cumbersome, they were heavy and they were hot. They had too much hair in them as well.  I wore the synthetic hair and at that time the hair would easily fray and become stiff. I can’t say enough bad things about the wigs when I was young (she laughs)! That combined with obviously not having a good wig that would stay on. There were a couple of really terrible moments in my life when they fell off in front of people. But you know they have evolved so nicely [since then] now they are light and I don’t worry about them coming off. I have a way that I secure them, so they will not come off. They look so much more natural and I don’t feel like I have this large presence on my head. They feel pretty normal now. I still have the same disease and the hair kind of comes and goes but doesn’t really grow in all the way. So I keep it shaved and wear a wig.
    Wigs.com: What motivated you to join our contest?
    SC: Well interestingly enough, I was very compelled to do it. You know… I hadn’t ever kept it a secret that I wear wigs, but I never broadcast it. When I wear a wig like this, people are always asking me where I get my haircut. If someone asks me once, I kind of skirt it, but if they insist then I tell them I wear a wig. When I saw this contest I had to make a decision, “Is this my moment where I’m basically broadcasting it?” And thought, yes it is time. Most of the people that start wearing wigs are wearing them because something much worse than hair falling out has happened. And hair falling out is just kind of adding another level of hardship, because our hair is interwoven with our egos. That’s just traditionally the way it is. To lose something like that, at a moment when you are already going through something so terrible like having a major illness, is kind of a double whammy. For me, I’m now used to wearing wigs and I enjoy wearing them. So I had the ability to say to somebody like that on a large scale that this is NOT going to be a hardship, this is actually going to be a fun experience, if you allow it to be and not worry about it; you’ll have a good time with it. To me it was a great opportunity to maybe be a little bit of a service in that way. It was a really gutsy thing to do because you don’t necessarily want everyone thinking of you when you are walking down the street, “Oh, she’s wearing a wig!” But I think that the benefits definitely are there and outweigh the potential negative.
    Wigs.com: When were you able to overcome your fears with wearing wigs? When did you reach that confident point?
    SC: That’s a great question. I think in college is when I had a little bit more acceptance of it. That’s when I found a great wig. Around my sophomore year my aunt had taken me to this designer wig studio and it just opened up all the possibilities. And I think having a really good wig is how I was able to finally come to some kind of peace with what had happened and knowing it [hair] wasn’t going to grow back. It was great, because you don’t want to put your life on hold for something to happen, that may never happen. So in many [...]

    Wigging Out In Kid's Wigs

    These days you don’t hear much about kid’s wigs. Ideally, alternative hair should be a choice, not a necessity. The truth is adults aren’t the only ones afflicted with hair loss. While hair loss is a difficult thing to manage, especially for a child, wigs are the perfect solution. The good news is more and more styles are becoming age appropriate for children.

    This week we want to showcase this fabulous Junior Wig Collection: Ashley, Dylan, Emily and Shiloh by Jon Renau. You’ll find the perfect wig style for the little one in your life!

    Ashley

    Great wig for kids from Jon Renau Junior Wig Collection

    This wig is a long layered synthetic hair style and perfect for the girly girl! The double-layered monofilament part helps create the illusion of natural hair growth at the scalp. Ashley is available in sizes, petite and ultra petite for adolescents. The side-swept bang gives this kid’s wig a modern look for that fashion-conscious young lady!

    Tip: Add a hair accessory or pull it up in a pony to change up the look. Watch this video to learn more about Ashley.

    Dylan

    Great wig for kids from Jon Renau Junior Wig Collection

    Short and spunky, this pixie cut can be worn by both boys and girls. This kid wig style is made with an open cap and lightweight materials, which make it very comfortable to wear. Dylan can be worn with a hair accessory to sass it up. We love how this short cut wig brings out the sassy in our model, Abby!

    Tip: Add a bit of shaping cream to set the texture and layers. Watch this video to learn more about Dylan.

    Emily

    Great wig for kids from Jon Renau Junior Wig Collection

    This medium length wig with bangs is so cute and age appropriate. The Emily wig features a double-layered monofilament top, which extends from the hairline all the way to the wig’s nape. This feature is important because of the versatility it allows for center part hairstyles. Doesn’t our model Abby look adorable in pig tails?

    Tip: Braid pig tails, or put up in ponytail to change the style. Watch this video to learn more about Emily.

    Shiloh

    Great wig for kids from Jon Renau Junior Wig Collection

    The bob style is a timeless cut that both adults and children can wear. Shiloh is a childhood classic! This kid wig style is also made with a double-layered monofilament part, creating the appearance of natural hair growth at the part. If you’re worried about a wig making your child appear too old, the Shiloh is a great option. Most of us have all had this round cut as a child. Our mothers no doubt loved this cut for its low-maintenance. Also, have you noticed how cute and round children’s cheeks appear in this style? Resist the urge to pinch! Your kid will thank you for it.

    Tip: Change up the bangs by cutting them or sweeping them off the side. Watch this video to learn more about Shiloh.

    Behind the Scenes

    Model Abigail Gonzales had a lot of fun wearing all four wig styles! She was a pleasure to work with.
