    Do you notice how the days seem to just fly by? As working women, stay at home moms, retirees… women of all walks wonder more often…. “Where is my time going in such a hurry?” time is becoming the most coveted asset.

    “Me Time” feels like a thing of the past, or at least a thing of such short supply. Not sure about you but it takes time to look and feel my best. But the ability to look great all day is becoming more difficult to achieve with longer work hours, commutes, and demands from our children’s schedules too! 60% of people who own a smart phone are in ‘work mode’ 14+ hours a day. Running errands has become a job in itself! All this leads to a collective sense of urgency in today’s society. Fast paced lifestyles call for products which make our lives a little easier.

    One of the most time consuming “me time” activities is getting ourselves ready to face the day! How many times do you short cut the hair and makeup routine so you can get out-the-door? Honestly, the hairstyle is usually the first thing to be sacrificed to the Time Godz. (Just say no to the scrunchie!) There’s no reason to give up looking your best. Confidence is key. Don’t give up on great hair just because of time.


    Wigs are the easiest solution for achieving perfect hair! It’s not just for thinning hair or hair loss anymore. With innovations in wigs over the last 5 years, they’re now virtually undetectable (if you get a good one). And you don’t have to break the bank to get a great style. You can get a wig for all occasions or budgets. Although human hair wigs are what many want, synthetic wigs have come far to feel and move just as perfectly as natural hair. Now you have the luxury of choice! If you’re not already hooked, here are some helpful tips that’ll help you go out on that limb and try wigs:

    • Look for something similar to your current style for emergencies.
    • Have a short style you feel comfortable pulling off for those days when you have to brave the heat or wind. Nothing is cuter than a great short cut for that fresh sporty look.
    • Play with colour! Most of us can pull off multiple colours. But who wants to risk a salon dye job on a colour you’ve never tried before? Easy fix. Grab a wig in your style/cut (or go for a new one) but feel free to experiment with colours you’ve always wanted to try. (Go lighter for summer and choose a richer or darker colour for fall and the holidays!)
    • Be confident! Know that a good quality wig will not fall off (even in the wind) and cannot be detected. Sure, you may be able to tell because you see yourself every day in the mirror, but most people will just think you are having a great hair day or just left the salon!
    • Wigs aren’t the only way to instantly perfect hair. Hair pieces and extensions also provide great solutions. Of course, there is a little more effort to get the right colour match and it does take a bit longer. But it will give you the perfect hair day and that extra bounce in your step that a wig will.
    • Lastly, we have to stick together. So many women are not aware of how far wigs and wearable hair has come. Don’t be afraid to share your time-saver secret with your friends.

    With the demands of life choking down our time and freedom to pamper at a comfortable pace, fight back. Use the innovations of the times to get back some time. Why not make wigs and wearable hair the accessory which can change the way you get ready to face the world. Try it.

    It’s about time!

    Wigs make life easy. Who wouldn’t want to put on perfect hair? We wear wigs because we want to look our best… and for the convenience. So traveling with them should also be a breeze!

    Here are 6 of our Wig Expert tips to keep your wigs and hairpieces looking good on the go.

    1. The perfect storage. A super stylish way to travel with wigs and hairpieces is in a functional and chic bag that’s specifically designed for them.

    Amy Gibson ResQ Bag Kit + Mini

    The ResQ Bag & Kit + Mini by Amy Gibson protects wigs, hairpieces, and extensions in a unique mesh lining that minimizes tangles and frizz, making it safe for traveling. It’s also beautiful!

    This is by far the best solution… but in a pinch… you can also use a Ziploc baggie. Just make sure it’s filled with air to keep your wig from getting squished.

    2. It’s all about options. There is no way to get the versatility of hairstyles with anything other than wigs. Think about when and where you’ll be going on your trip. For peace of mind take more than one wig with you. If you are going somewhere hot… bring a short style… you’ll thank us later! The ability to change your look from day to night will be worth it!

    Checkout this video about human hair and synthetic hair wigs for options to consider.


    3. Love your hair, and it will love you. When you’re traveling you don’t want to have to stop and wash your hairpieces. The easiest way to keep your wig clean longer is by wearing a headliner. The No Sweat Liner by HEADLINE IT! keeps you dry and comfortable all day long. It absorbs any sweat and moisture so you and your wigs stay fresh. The individually wrapped packages make it easy to take anywhere.


    4. Together they stand. A great way to reduce the daily maintenance of a wig is to place her on a wig stand when she’s no longer in use. Not only will this keep her free from tangles and creasing. But it will maintain her style and shape. The foldable versions are best for traveling!


    5. A suitcase for everyone. Hair extensions and hair pieces are a great way to add the fullness and volume you deserve while allowing you to change up your look. Traveling with them has never been easier! The Bellami Hair Extensions Carrier & Hanger lets you safely stow-away hair extensions, while protecting them from damage. And the Bellami Hair Extensions Hanger keeps your extensions free from tangles.

    6. The right products for the right occasion. Wigs require special care products… even on vacation. And depending on where you’ll be, the right products may not be available. The Try Me Kit for Synthetic Hair by BeautiMark is a line of special daily care products that make it easy to take just what you need on vacation. The 20 ounce bottles are perfect for travel and safe on both synthetic and human hair fiber.

    Take a look at our previous for more information on how Keep Your Alternative Hair In Tip-Top Shape.

    We all need to get away! Hopefully you get to do it often. However, no matter the frequency, make sure you are prepared. Let your hair work for you and not the other way around. Keep yourself as low maintenance as possible… but by all means…. Look good doing it!

    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.

    Hair Care Systems by Beautimark

    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.

    The 5pc PURE CARE System cleans, conditions, protects, revitalizes and adds shine to chemically processed hair. It includes, everything you need to care for your human hair wigs, extensions and hairpieces. The formula is so good; you can even use it on your own hair!

    Lisa loves it so much she said: I have fallen in love with this product. My hair is so hydrated but unlike most hydrating products it doesn't weigh my hair down. 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!
