    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?”

    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?
