Human Hair Wigs

Human hair wigs are not all created equal. The quality of the hair, the cap construction and materials all combine to make a wig you can live with. If you are looking at human hair wigs the selection process can be daunting.You can try the internet but then you are on your own. The internet companies do take returns but then how do you know who was wearing the wig before you? You really want to team up with a professional stylist who understands wigs. It’s a totally different skill set.

If you aren’t willing to get fine quality or REMY Human Hair you should consider a high quality synthetic wig. Entry level human hair can look heavy and doll like. Sometimes the cuticle layer is reversed and the hair tangles easily on the longer styles. Take into consideration your ethnicity. If you have a Nordic background a wig made from heavy Chinese hair is not going to be believable. A good quality human hair wig can easily cost $600 dollars or more. Longer hair also  drives the price up as well as construction.

Look for construction features like a lace front, all over hand tied construction and or a mono top. All these features contribute to a more believable and lightweight wig. The interior of the wig cap should be soft to the touch. This is especially important if you have major or complete hair loss.If it isn’t comfortable you wont want to wear it. Your wig stylist should be able to further adjust and customize the cap so it feels secure yet not binding.

Generally speaking most human hair wigs can be custom colored. It is far safer to choose a color slightly lighter and have your stylist shade the roots a bit. You don’t want to further stress the hair with a lightening procedure [unless the hair is virgin]. Human hair wigs and extensions fade in the sun.There is no way around it. Repeated coloring will compromise the wig’s integrity. Choose carefully. Coloring services done to the wig will fade quickly when exposed to sunlight. You may want to have a backup wig made of synthetic fiber if you are planning a vacation in the sun.raquel-couture-hollywood-devine-v1-sides-back-4566-remy-human-hair-wig

There are many choices out there and I still feel that Raquel Welch, Raquel Couture and any HAIRUWEAR product is the best value for your dollar. You will feel and see the difference once you try them on. They are easy to customize, the caps are soft and the hair will spoil you for anything else.

Raquel Couture Collection of wigs from Raquel Welch and Hairuwear

RW_F15_CoutureBrochure_SHIP.inddrwhghfsn_12_lgWow.I’ve been playing with a few of the wigs from Raquel Welch Wigs’ “Raquel Couture” collection made of !00% Remy Hair.These wigs are truly above and beyond anything I have ever worked with.The Remy hair is truly exceptional.
There i virtually no tangling during shampooing.I did use a mall amount of the Hairuwear Conditioner on the ends rinsed well with cool water and sprayed the smallest amount of Biomega Moisture Mist on the ends and midshaft.
The craziest thing about these wigs is that when you are styling them it’s as if you are working on a real head of hair.The hand knotting on these pieces is what you would expect only to be found on a high end custom piece costing 3x as much.
You really need to try one of these pieces on to understand the luxurious feel of the Pinnacle Cap and see the expert craftsmanship of the French drawn lace top.Totally invisible knotting.Totally believable.
I’ve watched several woman try these on and it is truly amazing to see how these wigs transform someone.The more they run their fingers through the silky Remy Hair the more it becomes a part of them.
The Raquel Couture Collection is shown by appointment,private if you like.You have never seen or felt anything like this before in ready to wear hair.

Raquel Couture Wig arrive to Luxe Salon on Wednesday August 24th.

These are simply the world’s most luxurious Remy Human Hair Wigs ever.You just have to experience the quality on your own head and you will understand what couture hair is all about……

Call for a private appointment.Prices tart at $995.Think of it a a well deserved calculated splurge.

wig rant. synthetic fiber wigs.

TrendsetterHere are a couple of tips for extending the life of a good synthetic wig.

1. Wash them.
The cleaner you keep them the longer the style lasts.Period.If you wear a fuller look , after shampooing and letting them rest on a towel for a few minutes to drain hang them upside down to dry using a skirt hanger. If you prefer a sleeker look drape the wig over the sink faucet to dry.Best to gently shake them and spray
a conditioner on before hanging to dry.Gentle combing to remove tangles helps preserve the set.

2.Keep a Ziplock bag handy.So many times people come in to the salon with a wig wadded up in their purse like it was an old kleenex.Put the wig in the bag and offer it a little protection from the rest of whatever else is in your purse . Synthetic hair , especially the finer Kanekalon fibers do not like to be abraded.If you are traveling with a wig, blow a little air in the bag to slightly inflate it like a pillow.

3.Gently comb out tangles daily on short styles and a couple times a day on longer ones.Pay extra attenion to the nape. Synthetic fibers can get matted over time, especially at the nape.Ocaissional trips to the salon for a professional smoothing service is well worth the time and money.
