    Top pieces are a great solution for localized hair loss. The best top piece covers the affected area while delivering exceptional comfort. Identifying the nature and extent of your hair loss is the key to determining the right solution for your needs.

    Stages of Hair Loss: The first step in determining what kind of coverage you need is to identify your stage of hair loss.

    Stage I: Hair loss is in a diffused pattern on top of the head. Hair loss at this stage is noticeable, but minimal.
    Stage II: Hair loss is more noticeable, and more of the scalp may be visible.
    Stage III: At this stage hair loss is very noticeable, and the scalp is clearly visible.

    Area of Hair Loss: The second step is to identify the location of hair loss.

    Front/Fringe: Hair loss is localized at or near the front hair line.
    Part: Hair loss is localized within the top of the scalp near the part or crown.
    Top: Light to moderate hair loss localized at the top of the scalp near the part or the crown.
    Crown: Hair loss is localized at or near the back of the scalp.
    Diffused: Hair loss is localized at the top of the scalp and is spread through much of the area.
    Total/Complete: Complete loss of hair.

    The Best Solution: The third step is to select the best type of coverage for your need.

    Clip-in bangs/fringe are the perfect solution for thinning hair at the front hairline or temples.


    Clip-in, volumizing hairpieces and extensions help you fill in thinning areas or fine hair. This is the ideal solution for hair loss localized within a smaller area of the head.




    Clip-in top pieces with smaller bases work best for light to moderate hair loss at the top of the head near the part or crown.


    Clip-in top pieces with larger bases are the solution for extensive hair loss at the top, crown, or more diffused stages of hair loss.


    100% Hand-Tied & Double Monofilament Wigs are the ideal solution for complete hair loss and the preferred wigs by women with hair loss because of the smoother surface and comfortable caps which eliminate irritation and friction against the scalp.

    Great hair deserves great care and one of the secrets to making your wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions look great longer, is proper care.

    If you’re new to wearing alternative hair, consider a kit that will outfit you with all you need to maintain your investment. loves the BeautiMark collection because its formulated specifically for wearable hair and free of parabens.

    5 of Your Biggest Alternative Hair Care Questions Answered

    Why can’t I just use regular shampoos and conditioners?

    Using products that are not formulated for your hair can damage the fiber causing it to look dull and feel brittle. Using products specially formulated for your hair type returns it to its natural sheen, prolonging that supple movement that’s so crucial to a natural look.

    Can I use Woolite to wash my hair?

    While there was a practice of simply throwing your wig or hairpiece in with the dirty laundry, newer synthetic fibers can be more sensitive to products which are not specifically formulated for your particular hair type.

    I have wigs made of human hair and synthetic fiber, can I use the same product on both?

    Synthetic hair and human hair each have special needs in order to maintain their optimal look and feel. But to maintain its beautiful condition, you must use specially formulated hair care products designed for your type of hair.

    Should I wash my wig and hairpieces every day to keep it clean?

    There’s no need to clean your wearable hair daily. But we do recommend a regular cleaning every 6-8 wears.

    What should I do to keep my hair looking its best between washings?

    Natural hair is kept hydrated with oils from the scalp.This, of course, does not happen with wigs or hair add-ons. While we don’t recommend washing your wearable hair every day, it is critical that you hydrate daily with leave-in conditioner. These products will also protect hair prior to any heat styling.


    The Leave-In Conditioner for synthetic hair comes in an 8-ounce spray bottle and is made of a lightweight formula that conditions and detangles.

    Human Hair

    The Hydra Conditioner is specially formulated for human hair and comes in an 8-ounce tube and PH balanced to create healthy hair that is smooth and soft.

    The Beautimark care systems were first perfected for synthetic hair.


    The great thing about synthetic hair is that it requires very little care and maintenance. The 10-piece Wig Essentials Kit for Synthetic Hair includes all the products and tools you need for cleaning and styling.

    One of our Beautifmark clients, Marge, had this to say about our shampoo and conditioner for synthetic hair: "I love how my wigs look after they are freshly washed with this shampoo. Plus they smell great! I use the Leave-In conditioner also and think the two work well together. Out of the different shampoos I've used on my wigs this is by far the best."

    Human Hair

    Human Hair wigs can last a lot longer than synthetics, but that’s only If you take proper care of them. After much success with our care products for synthetic hair, we extended our line to include Beautimark products specially formulated for human hair.

I tried the recovery mask in the 5 piece set and I can honestly say I have never seen such a great conditioning treatment ...ever! It is a must have for sure.”

    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!
