Questions About Wearable Hair
There are advantages to both and many people choose to have human virgin unprocessed hair and human processed hair wigs on hand for different circumstances. Unprocessed hair /virgin hair still has the cuticle intact; it has not been chemically processed. The hair is also usually from a single donor. Each strand of hair faces the same direction, not causing tangling. The hair would also be considered luxury hair, also known as “cuticle hair.” It can last longer than processed hair,of course, it is more expensive than processed hair.
A:The advantage of unprocessed hair is that if you want to color the hair, you can get a great match to your own. With unprocessed hair, you also get a better color application, as the stylist can see the original tones in the hair and which tones it pulls.
B: Another advantage is that unprocessed hair lasts longer than processed hair; this way, you get a greater value, as it's not damaged hair. The hair is soft and more manageable after you wash it, as it is not usually coated in silicone.
Processed hair refers to hair that has been chemically treated during production to make it appear a certain way. Prior to being styled, processed hair is soaked in a highly acidic bath to strip it of its cuticles and basically emit all of the natural characteristics of the strands.
The disadvantage is that the hair is heavily processed, so its lifespan is not as long as the lifespan of an unprocessed wig.
If you enjoy styling versatility, human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair are the way to go. While human hair offers the most natural look and feel plus styling versatility, heat-friendly synthetic hair also allows heat styling (optimal temperature of 250-275 degrees — never go above 350 degrees). Proper care is vital to keeping heat friendly hair looking its best. A wide tooth comb should be used (not a brush) and it is best to avoid combing while wet. Use of product specially designed for synthetic hair, such as BeautiMark, can also help maintain the quality and condition of the hair. We also recommend detangling spray! With proper care, heat-friendly synthetic hair should last up to a few months. Check our wig caring guide.
Constant innovation in technology allows for increasingly wearable and comfortable wigs! The base of any wig is referred to as a cap. The hair is attached to the wig cap using a variety of techniques to achieve different looks. On most wigs, hair is attached in "wefts." These are strips of hair doubled over and sewn closely together in long strands. Others are hand-tied for the most natural movement. If you like to wear your hair swept away from your face, lace front are the best option. If you like parting versatility and the most natural look, we recommend full monofilament wigs( lace top). are known for being gentle on sensitive scalps.
Many wigs come in petite, average and large sizes. Average size wigs, however, tend to fit about 95% of customers. We have a video guide that will help you measure your head to determine the best size!

If you are thinning on top, at the crown or at the hairline, you may choose to wear a half wig, hairpiece or top piece in lieu of a full wig. Many blend in so naturally with your own hair, even experts are hard pressed to see them when in place. They are also a great option if you want to conceal greys or new hair growth between color touch ups. Learn more about how to cover or hide thin hair by using hairpieces.
Yes! First the practical reasons. Wigs can last longer if not worn daily. You can be washing and air-drying one while wearing the other. If you wear human hair, you can keep one styled straight and the other curly to reduce stress. Here is a tip we love: If you'd like your wig to be your secret, get two or three of your favorite style and ask your stylist to trim them in stages. You can create the illusion of hair growth and haircuts and no one will be the wiser! And if you're more the adventurous type, you can have a little fun with a whole host of different styles and colors.
Wigs Care & styling
After removing your wig from the box, take off the protective hairnet (if the style has one) and give it a good shake. If it is a ready-to-wear,(for custom wigs) you are ready to go! If it requires customization, (for basic line wigs) (such as trimming a lace front or styling the wig), we recommend you consult a hair stylist.
If you have a lot of your own hair, the first step is to gather it back and up. One great trick is to separate hair into two sections on each side of your head. Twist the hair as you pull it back and around the head so that it will eventually lay flat. This tactic can help avoid a pony tail bulge. You may choose to use pins, braids, wig caps (recommended) or a great product called Sure Grip to secure your hair or the provided head band. A wig cap can be helpful even without hair to keep wigs secure and in place.
Hold your wig at the sides (ear tabs) and starting at the front, place it at your natural hairline. Slide it on toward the nape of your neck and shift as needed using the ear tabs to help center your wig. Adjustable straps at the nape may help to achieve a more secure fit. If handling a lace front wig, take care not to tug on the lace as it can be a bit delicate.
Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect right away, start styling!
When not in use, store your wig on a mannequin or wig stand to maintain its shape and wash only when necessary (roughly once every 10-14 days of wear but more often if your lifestyle or environment calls for it). consult our guide to caring for wearable hair for some great tips.
Human hair wigs tend to offer the most natural look but today,thanks to great innovations in wig technology. Styles with lace front and monofilament features such as lace top – or those that are 100% hand tied -- will also appear very natural. When it comes to choosing style, consider styles that will be most flattering given your face shape. Check out our guide. And as for color, it is often wise to stick close to your own natural color. Whatever you choose, a stylist can help you customize your wig to suit your preference. Consult a salon near you familiar with wearable hair.

Most styles come in a number of colors, lessening the need to color.our exclusive line human hair wigs can.
