    Wedding Hairstyle

    You only get married once in a lifetime… for the first time (hey, it happens!). Which is why you are expected to look picture perfect on your wedding day. Now I don’t know about you, but that’s a lot of pressure.

    Besides the dress, the wedding hairstyle and makeup are two of the most essential components of that picture-perfect look. Like makeup, the hair must be expertly sculpted into place. This is easier said than done, especially if it happens to rain on your wedding day. So what’s a gal to do?

    Wigs for Your Wedding Hairstyle

    Believe it or not, it’s ok to wig out on your wedding day. No, seriously it is, and no one will call you Bridezilla either.

    In other words, you have the option of choosing to wear a wig for your wedding hairstyle. You’re guaranteed a head full of beautiful hair and the perfect wedding hairstyle just the way you like it.

    Convinced yet? Well, before you run off to make your purchase, here are a couple of tips you’ll want to consider prior to choosing your wedding hairstyle.

    Wig Tips for Your Wedding Hairstyle

    1. Lace is usually associated with weddings for its delicate and intricate beauty. While it’s true that a lace wedding dress is not for everyone, a lace front wig certainly is. Lace front wigs are going to offer the most natural and seamless appearance, because the lace front is made from a mesh-like material that is designed to blend in with your skin to mimic your natural hairline. This helps disguise the wig so that no one can tell where it begins. Tip: If the lace front does not match your skin tone, you can use makeup to blend it into your skin.
    2. Updos are the quintessential go-to wedding hairstyle because of their elegant and put-together look. And, guess what? You can wear a wig in an updo as well. The trick is to keep the style low and loose, in order to hide the wig at the nape. You can wear a low chignon, side updo, or even a loose pony – all of these looks will result in a beautiful and romantic wedding hairstyle. Tip: Apply some adhesive or tape to keep the weight of the hair from pulling back the wig.
    3. Another crucial point to consider is the kind of fiber to purchase. If you’re set on the wedding hairstyle you want, you may want to purchase a synthetic hair wig in the style you desire. However, if you like a little flexibility, you’ll want to purchase a fiber that is easily customizable such as human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair. Though when it comes to stylability, human hair wigs are the way to go for your wedding hairstyle. Tip: Human hair wigs such as Angie & Kate will retain fullness and body even after they are washed.

    At the end of the day the possibilities for a fabulous wedding hairstyle are endless! With the wide variety of wigs available today you’re sure to find the perfect one for you. Sarah-Catherine, winner of the Wigs.com video contest, wore her favorite go-to wig, Sky by Noriko as her wedding hairstyle. She danced the night away in beautiful picture perfect hair… and you can too.

    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!

    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?
