    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.

    And the winner is...

    Sarah-Catherine Phillips Gutierrez

    CONGRATULATIONS Sarah! You are our shining star!

    All of our finalists’ videos were wonderful, but we felt that Sarah’s video clearly manifests our goal here at Wigs.com. Our mission is to empower women with confidence by offering the right choice in style and quality. Sarah’s video review embraced our mission and brought the beauty of her wig to life.

    The Highlights

    Sarah took us on a journey wearing Sky by Noriko. Even though she didn't verbally review Sky, she did show us through a slideshow of images, how beautiful and natural this wig is. This video is a perfect example of how a picture really is worth a thousand words! Her video is artistically creative and inspiring. We loved seeing this wig worn in real-life situations, without limitations.

    In watching this video, you get to travel with Sarah from Boston all the way to Sudan Africa. Sarah shared with us some of the most important moments in her life, and in every one of them, Sky by Noriko, gave her the confidence she needed. She made it clear that anyone can wear a wig to do just about anything… absolutely anywhere!

    Sarah shares her experiences on a ‘windy Boston day’ (you know there’s nothing scarier than your wig flying off), riding a camel in the Sudan – yes, you read correctly a camel (you have to see it!). What Sarah was doing in the middle of the desert we don’t know yet, but we hope to find out when we have our first interview with her. In the video Sarah wore Sky while building a house, walking down the aisle, and even Salsa dancing... Arriba!

    Thank you Sarah, we thoroughly enjoyed the ride!

    At Wigs.com we understand the hesitations with wearing wigs and still maintaining an active lifestyle. We hope Sarah’s video proves you’re not limited to the things you can accomplish. Watch this video and we’re sure you’ll be convinced!

    We want to take a moment to thank everyone that entered our contest. Even if you only participated by ‘liking’ and sharing your favorite videos, we’re extremely thankful for your time!

    Fabulous Runner-Up Videos:

    What's your face got to do with it?

    As much as you covet Michelle Williams' perfect pixie or Rose Byrne's blunt bangs and bob combo, for one reason or another you hesitate. Something inside tells you that not only do both of those styles imply drastic changes, but you know they simply don't go with you. "I can't pull it off," you might think. And honestly, you probably can't. The culprit is your face shape. Therefore while some hairstyles are perfect, others… not so cute. Hey, we can't have it all!

    That's why today we're giving you the scoop on what hairstyles to avoid and which ones to rock for your face shape:

    Round Face

    Round face shape

     

     

     

     

     

    If you fear the roundness of your face will make you appear bigger than what you really are, don't fret! The key is to elongate and cut the width of your face.

    Avoid:

    • Chin-length bobs, exaggerate the roundness
    • Short curly hairstyles create a round shape around your face
    • One-length cuts, accentuate the roundness of your face, especially when parted down the middle

    Do:

    • Layers help soften wide cheeks
    • Side-swept bangs add length to a round face shape
    • Height at the crown lengthens the face

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Infatuation by Raquel Welch Jennifer by Jon Renau Bobbi by Envy

    Any hairstyle that increases the height of your face is favorable.

    Heart-Shaped Face

    heart-shaped-face

    Your face has such a unique (and loveable) shape that will work with most hairstyles. However, having a wider forehead and pointy chin, you'll want to divert the attention from both.

    Avoid:

    • Blunt bangs, draw attention to a pointy chin
    • Short full styles that emphasize the upper face
    • Height at the crown, draws the focus to a wide forehead

    Do:

    • Rounded bobs fill out the chin by creating width to the jaw bone
    • Cheek-level layers/bangs soften a harsh pointy chin
    • Layered and wavy curls add fullness to the chin and help round out the face.

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Carrie by Jon Renau Upstage by Raquel Welch Roll With It by Forever Young

    Don't forget your goal is to find a hairstyle that offers balance to the face.

    Oval Face

    oval-face-shape

    Your face shape is among the most common and the most versatile. Aren't you a lucky gal?

    Avoid:

    • Short layers can make face appear long
    • Curly blunt cuts, these create a pyramid effect
    • Voluminous hair hides your proportioned features

    Do:

    • Short bobs give the illusion of a square face shape
    • Layers or waves to accentuate cheekbones
    • Updos and hair pulled back, show off our face

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Scorpio by Revlon Christina by Wig Pro Caressa by Forever Young

    Your features are balanced and proportionate – don't be afraid to try different hairstyles!

    Square Face

    square-face-shape

    Worried your face is too harsh and may appear masculine? It's all good. Haven't you heard? It's hip to be square!

    Avoid:

    • Chin-length bobs, will make your face appear boxy
    • Pixie cuts emphasize the squareness of your flat chin
    • Straight heavy bangs will only accentuate your jaw line, making it appear heavier

    Do:

    • Textured hair (curls, choppy ends, soft & flowy) soften hard angles
    • 'Lobs' with side-swept, layered eye-grazing bangs give a diagonal illusion and keep the focus away from the squareness
    • Center parts make your square brow appear more narrow

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Destiny by Henry Margu Nicole by Jon Renau Limelight by Raquel Welch

    Some of the most beautiful women have square shape faces. You're in good company! Just remember to soften the sharp angles and minimize attention to your squared-off brow.

    In terms of hair, our days can be summed up as this: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    On good days we’re flying high, flaunting our locks every which way. On bad days we throw on a hat or abuse the allotted one time a week ponytail (kudos if you got the ‘Mean Girls’ movie reference). And on ugly days? You stay home. OK, so no one really stays home due to a bad hair day, but you know you’ve thought about it... We’ve all been there.

    Synthetic hair wigs and extensions to the rescue! Whether you’ve lost your hair, or the little you do have doesn’t want to cooperate, wigs and hair extensions are a girl’s best friend. Honestly, when we need the extra help there's no reason why a heat-friendly synthetic hair wig or extension can’t do the trick. You see, once properly styled, your heat-friendly synthetic hair will stay put all day long regardless of what goes on in your environment. Unlike normal hair, synthetic hair doesn’t fall victim to the elements such as humidity and rain. You haven’t seen ugly until your hairstyle has been rained on!

    Styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions is very similar to styling your own hair, with only a few exceptions. The following instructions are only for heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions.

    Note: We recommend keeping hot tools under 350° Fahrenheit. Also, keep in mind that once you alter your wig and/or hair extension you won’t get the original style back – but don’t worry you can change the style as many times as you’d like!

    Curl Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Curling Iron

    Want to curl your wig or hair extensions? Easy! Just follow the 3 C’s:

    1. CURL
      • First of all, DO NOT curl hair while on your head. Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig. You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
      • Make sure you comb hair free of tangles (the Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark is ideal).
      • Take a 1–1.5inch section of hair (smaller sections give you tighter curls, larger sections give you looser curls).
      • Gather hair in curling iron, smooth through to the ends, roll up towards weft.
      • Hold for 15-20 seconds, release curl into palm.
    2. CLIP
      • Hold the curl in one hand, gather up towards the base and clip it in place.
    3. COOL
      • Let hair cool completely before removing pin to effectively set the curl.
      • Hair can be combed using an appropriate comb.

     

     

    Straighten Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Flat Iron

    Sexy glossy straight hair is super easy!

     

    1. Again, DO NOT style hair while on your head.
      • Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig.
      • You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
    2. Take a 1–1.5inch section, starting at least 2inches away from the base. Slowly smooth flat iron down towards end, follow with a comb to keep hair looking smoother.
    3. Continue through ends (2-3 times if needed).
    4. Allow hair to hang naturally to cool.

    Getting your “wig-on” is all fun and games, however, for the fun to actually continue we have to take proper care of our wigs. Please refer to our Synthetic Hair Special Care page to learn how.

    Tools used:

    1. Duck bill clips
    2. Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark
    3. 1" Nano Ceramic Flat Iron with Smart Heat Controls
    4. 1" Nano Ceramic Curling Iron with Smart Heat Controls

     

     

     

    Now you’re ready to start styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair! Wasn’t that easy?

    Trends to Try

    Every New Year begins with hopeful dreams and a daunting little thing called “resolutions.” The word alone is enough to scare anyone away, add to that - losing weight, saving more, getting out of debt and we're ready to throw in the towel. The problem with each of these goals is it takes time to see results - if any (come on, get real). Changing your hairstyle, however, is a great way to get an immediate sense of accomplishment. And most importantly, feel pretty.

    So that brings us to today’s post: What’s on your head for 2012?

    If you’re ready for a change, whether it’d be permanent or not, choose from the following hairstyle trends for 2012. But hurry because they're spreading like wildfire! As is the case with any trend, hair fashion this year is all about revival and evolution.

    Glistening Hair


    No time for a blowout? No problem! Go a la naturale! Glistening slicked back hair, a.k.a. “the wet look,” has been prominent on the fashion runways and red carpets alike. Air-dry your hair, add gel and/or mousse to the roots and either wear your hair slicked back or in a ponytail. If you’re going to try this look on your wig make sure to use the appropriate products for your synthetic or human hair wig. This will not only ensure the best look but will prolong your wig’s longevity.

    Center-Part


    Coined by Glamour magazine, “Cher hair,” the center part hairstyle is a throwback to the ‘70s long straight hair. For a bohemian look, simply air-dry and part your hair down the middle. If you want a super sophisticated look, straighten your hair with a flat-iron and finish off with a frizz-free hair serum. You’ll be singing “I Got You Babe,” in no time!

    Finger Waves


    If straight hair is not the thing for you… but you’re kind of sick of spiral curls, finger waves might do the trick. This hairstyle was very popular in the 1920s and 1930s (think Roxie Hart/Renée Zellweger's hair in the musical Chicago). Apply gel generously to the hair, and comb the hair into ridges and curves using your fingers. Quick tip: an easier way to achieve this look is to create the ridges with a flat-iron instead of using your fingers; this will give you a softer look and last longer. The end result is an ultra glam Old Hollywood hairstyle. Who needs sexy? Let’s bring Glamorous back!

    Bold Color


    Obviously Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are responsible for the bold color trend. Last year, the pastel color family was in vogue (cue Kate Bosworth’s horrible tie-dye highlights). For 2012, the bolder the better! From Selena Gomez to Katy Perry, numerous celebrities have started to show their true colors this year. Are you afraid of making the commitment? Try a wig! It’s the perfect way to experiment and have some fun. By the way, can somebody tell Kelly Osbourne that her grey-toned hair is so 2011? Actually scratch that, artificial grey hair has never (thankfully!) been a popular trend.

    Braided Updos

    2011 was partial to the braid: side braids, high braids, low braids, and fishtail braids – you get the picture. Well, for 2012 the traditional braid is getting a makeover! Limp plaits are a thing of the past, now it’s all about twisted buns and intricate updos. Charlize Theron was one of the first celebrities to give this trend its debut at the 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. So all you savvy hairstylists out there give those fingers a stretch and get to braiding! If you’re not as experienced with weaving hair and the look intimidates you – no worries! You have all of 2012 to learn.

    There you have it, all promising hairstyle trends for 2012! So which one will you try?

    What do you think about the rooted look?

    Many of the wig styles available on Wigs.com are available in 'rooted' colors for the same effect. It's true - now wigs are being made with a root slightly darker than the rest of the hair for a more natural and believable look. Wig manufacturers like Raquel Welch, Jon Renau, Noriko, Revlon, and Rene of Paris are all looking out for us!

    Nobody has the schedule for frequent touch-ups at the salon - not even celebrities and movie stars. These days... it's a trend! Celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel McAdams and Madonna (to name just a few) all dare to show the rooted look ...

    Hairstyle with Rooted Look

    Shenae Grimes

    Sarah Jessica Parker

    Camila Alves

    Jessica Simpson

    Rachel McAdams

    Jennifer Aniston

    Madonna

    Rachel Bilson

    Reese Witherspoon

    Sandra Bullock

    Our own hair grows darker and lightens with the sun towards the ends. So some say the rooted look is more natural.

    Please let us know what you think about the rooted look!
