Wig FAQ

Easy washing instructions for synthetic wigs: 

  • Fill a basin of mild shampoo and swish wig gently in water;
  • Rinse wig thoroughly in cold water;
  • Gently shake wig out. Drip dry. do not brush wigs when wet;
  • Brush wig into desired style when completely dry;
  • Do not use curling iron or curling kits on wigs;
  • No setting is necessary; curls will snap back into position when wig is completely dry;
  • All wigs can be styled into just about anything with light heat.
  • However, we recommend using a professional hairstylist to change the style of wigs.
  • Synthetic wigs can be ruined by use of heat.

How to color or cut your wig?

  • If you're considering cutting or thinning your wig, we recommend you look for a stylist who is experienced in cutting wigs.
  • Coloring your wig with color rinse will damage its fibers. 
     

Once your wig has been cut or thinned, we cannot accept an exchange.

Common wig terms:
Definitions to help you understand the benefits of certain wig features. 

Hand-Tied Construction:
Wig fibers are tied to the cap by hand. This allows you to brush or comb the hair in any direction you choose.

Monofilament:
A fine poly-silk mesh base which fibers are hand tied to. This thin breathable fabric is placed at either the hairline or from the front to the crown.

Open Ear Tabs:
Flexible material that allows ear tabs to adjust and contour to the face at your temple. Ideal if you wear glasses.

Permanent Lift:
Backcombing provides body and fullness to your wig styles.

Permanent Tease:
Crimping at the base adds hair volume to your wig style without adding weight.

Stretch Lace:
Allows the wig to conform to the shape of your head, giving you a secure, comfortable fit. 



How to select the right wig ?

 
 
   As its name implies, the Oval Shaped Face is longer than wide, with a jaw that's narrower than the cheekbones.
Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is so proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.
   The Round Shaped Face is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones.
The client may be overweight and the neck may appear short. These faces look very good with a geometric or linear style.
Add height, when possible, and long, wispy side areas to make the cheeks look narrow.
Comb hair close to the head on the side and at the nape.
   The Square Shaped Face is characterized by a wide hairline and jaw.
Square shaped faces need height on top and narrowness at the sides.
Comb the hair off the forehead to add height to the face.
Curly texture and wigs of hair around the face break the wide, straight lines common to the square face.
   The Diamond Shaped Face is characterized by a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at the chin.
Bobs work very well for this shape.
Avoid wearing height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe or bang to cover narrow forehead.
   The Heart Shaped Face
is characterized by a wider forehead and a narrower chin.
Bring some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width.
Keep hair close to the head at the eyes but make it slightly full around the jaw, and below and in front of the earlobes.
   The Pear Shaped Face is characterized by a small or narrow forehead and a rather large pouchy-appearing jaw line.
Comb hair to add width from the eye level through the crown of the head.
Set and comb hair close to the head on the sides and at the nape.
   The Oblong Shaped Face is characterized by a very long and narrow bone structure.
The client who has an oblong facial shape often has a long, thin neck.
Use a fringe or half-bang across or curls in the crown and nape areas.This helps to create the illusion of an oval.

Wig Storage
The best way to store your wig is on a wig stand. That will help your wig from becoming tangled and soiled between wearing and it helps to maintain your wig’s style.
How to Clean Your Wig?
Generally, a wig should be washed after 12-15 wearings. Factors such as air quality and humidity will contribute to frequency of washing, as it does with your own hair. Always keep your own hair clean when wearing your wig to reduce washing frequency.
