    The Truth

    You’ve heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” And if you’ve spent any amount of time with wigs, you've noticed that the ones made of human hair are generally more expensive than the ones made of synthetic fiber. But does that necessarily exclude one over the other as the better choice?

    The truth is Human hair and Synthetic hair both have their advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at just a few of them.

    Human Hair

    Remy Human Hair: Angie Exclusive Colors by Jon Renau

    Human Hair: Emotion by Ellen Wille

















    Of all the hair types, human hair looks and feels the most natural. Remy human hair is considered a premium option because its easier to style and stays relatively tangle free due to all the follicles being kept in the same direction during construction. Human hair is remarkably soft with a shine and movement not easily duplicated by synthetic hair. Its versatility allows you to style it like your own hair with curls or bone straight with a durability that can last over a year!


    Not only is it more expensive than synthetic hair, but just like natural hair, human hair wigs requires a lot more time and effort to style and maintain. If you have a busy lifestyle or a low budget, this may not be the choice for you. And just like natural hair, human hair will react to weather conditions.

    Synthetic Hair

    Synthetic Hair: Sparkle by Raquel Welch 

    Heat-Friendly Synthetic by Raquel Welch
















    With all the technological strides the wearable hair industry is making, synthetic hair looks and behaves more and more like human hair. The fact that most synthetic wigs can be worn right out of the box with minimal or no styling requirements makes it a more attractive choice. And, unlike human hair, synthetic hair will hold its style regardless of the climate.


    It’s just this resistance to change that makes this type of hair a poor choice if you desire the versatility of styling. In most cases the synthetic fiber has “memory” which means that the wave and curl patterns are permanently set; styling any other way is nearly impossible. There are heat-friendly synthetic options which allow styling like human hair wigs. But styling is still a challenge due to the fiber’s natural resistance to change.

    Bottom Line

    Ideally, you want both types of hair on hand as both are great choices for different situations. The best one depends on your budget, time and needs.

    Final Words of Wisdom

    Regardless of which type of hair you choose, remember that it is always important to follow our care recommendations in order to get the optimal life span from your hair!

    Looking for a dramatic change? As the seasons transition to warmer temperatures, we look back at a hair landscape awash in bold cuts. Spring extends this creative energy with runway inspired trends that emphasize natural texture and color. This season’s trendiest hairstyle adds versatility to the mix calling for fun, playfulness and daring…

    The long bob or “Lob” is a longer bob that falls between shoulder length hair and a bob.

    Known in France as the ‘couper la Jeanne D’Arc’ (the Joan of Arc), it’s a practical style that encourages a more spirited side of your personality. And as a symbol of the strong, dynamic and fearless woman, it’s the go-to cut for many celebrities which is cementing this look as a major hair trend that’s in no danger of going out of style.

    Long bob hairstyles are super versatile. It's a cut that can be worn stick straight for an up-town chic look, or with waves for that just-crawled-out-of-bed-hair trend.

    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.


    • 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


    • 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


    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.


    • 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


    • 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


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


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


    • 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


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


    • 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


    • 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.

    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.


    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?
