There are many reasons why you might wear a wig. Your hair could be thinning, you could be going through a procedure which makes your hair fall out, or you just want to change up your style without doing anything to your real hair. No matter the reason, you want a high-quality wig that will last you for a while. You also want your wig to be able to handle any styling tools such as hair straighteners or curling irons. To get this, you want a wig made with high heat synthetic fiber because it is more realistic and gives you the heat-styling benefits of real hair. However, if not properly cared for, your heat synthetic wig can tangle and frizz which causes damage to the fibers.

Is Your Heat Resistant Wig Frizzing? | Rosalind Stella's Wig Boutique

How To Solve Heat Resistant Wig Frizzing

If your high heat synthetic wig is frizzing slightly, you can easily repair it by setting your flat iron between 270 degrees and 280 degrees. Once the proper temperature is reached, use the flat iron to smooth out the frizzy ends. If the frizzing is more severe, use a hair steamer to steam and smooth the ends. Steaming can be a difficult process and, if done wrong, crimps and waves can be left in the wig. If you want your wig steamed properly, let the professionals at Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique do it for you.

How To Prevent Wig Frizzing

No matter what you do, your wig will frizz at some point in the duration of it’s life. Frizz is caused by friction.  However, there are precautions you can take to lower how quickly frizz will appear. Having a daily care routine is essential. Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your wig so as not to cause tension and damage to the fibers. Using a smooth detangler will help keep the fibers from tangling as well as help keep them smooth. Heat is an important factor with high heat synthetic wigs. The use of heat will help remove frizz and prevent frizz if used every day.

Wigs are a great and affordable way to not only hide a thinning hairline or baldness, but also to enhance your appearance and make you feel confident. However, choosing a wig can be a difficult task. You want to make sure you are choosing a wig that fits well with your face so you can feel comfortable and confident going out in public with it on. If you’re looking for a wig, follow these guidelines on how you choose a wig style to suit your face shape:

How Do I Choose A Wig Style To Suit My Face Shape? | Rosalind Stella's

Oval Face

Oval faces offer a lot of options because they are often referred to as having equal proportions and are suitable for a variety of styles. With an oval face, you can choose any wig you want, any style, any cut, long or short.

Round Face

Round faces have a soft curve that defines the face shape and is often very symmetrical. Long layers and side-sweeping bangs are the best styles that suit round faces. If you prefer shorter styles, it is recommended that you keep the cut choppy. The asymmetrical style is great because it counters the soft edges of the round face.

Diamond-Shaped

Diamond-shaped faces are defined by wide, high cheekbones and narrow chins. This face shape looks good with both short and long hair. Bobs with bangs is a very popular style for this face shape. It is a good idea to stay away from too much volume on the top and a middle part.

Oblong

Oblong faces are slightly longer than oval faces with a more pointed chin. Bangs go very well with this face shape as well as a flick or curl at the ends of the hair. Like oval-shaped faces, most hair styles work well with oblong faces. Try a bunch and see which one suits you best.

Heart-Shaped

Defined by the narrow jaw, pointy chin, and wider cheekbones and forehead, the heart-shaped face works well with a long bob and piece bangs. Shorter, layered styles also look good with heart-shaped faces.

Lace Front Wigs

Lace front wigs are perfect for summer, because they are lightweight and comfortable. It’s perfect for someone who is on the go. The wig material is constructed with sheer lace-like material and dyed the color of flesh. To create a seamless look, you can order different colors of lace to match your skin tone. Another benefit is the natural look it achieves. The lace front construction makes the wig appear seamless, and allows you to be able to pull your hair back and style it away from your face.

Monofilament Wigs

Monofilament wigs are constructed using a sheer, mesh-like material like nylon or polyester, which closely resembles a natural scalp. Like the lace front wig, the sheer material of the monofilament wig is breathable and feels like you aren’t wearing a wig at all. Monofilament wigs typically combine a mono top with an open cap at the sides and nape of the neck. This creates ventilation and keeps your scalp at a comfortable temperature.

When you venture into the wide world of wigs, the style choices become endless. You can select a wig that represents something different than your natural hair, creating an alter ego of sorts. But many people want a wig that looks as natural to their own hair and style as possible. Making your hair piece work for you is easy – especially with these five tips for a completely natural-looking wig!

5 Tips for a Completely Natural-Looking Wig | Rosalind Stella's Wigs

Consider your face shape, skin tone and natural hair. To make a wig look as true to yourself as possible, select a cut and style that complements your face shape, such as layers around an oval face more square face. When thinking about color, select shades just few notches lighter or darker than your skin tone. Also consider a cap construction that let’s you blend in your own hair along the hairline.

  • Get the right fit. A wig that does not fit correctly will cause you to constantly adjust and tug on it, calling attention to the fact that you are actually wearing a wig. Getting the right measurements can be difficult to do yourself, so consult with a wig boutique to have a pro take down the numbers and suggest a size.
  • Go with a human hair wig. Although human hair wigs can be pricey, they also tend to last longer and look more natural. You can use styling tools to mix up the look from day to day, and you can even cut and color the make the wig suit you.  If you do go with a synthetic wig, be sure to dial down the unnatural shine of the hair fibers with a little hair powder.
  • Keep up care and maintenance. A ratty, tangled mess can be a dead giveaway that you’re wearing a wig. Be sure to follow the wig manufacturer’s guidelines on how often to wash and condition the wig – usually every few weeks or so, depending on how often you wear it and if you sweat in it. It’s also very important to use the right wig-specific products and tools.
  • Be confident. If you’re constantly checking your wig, adjusting hair fibers, pulling it back or away from your face or adjusting the fit, the wig will be obvious. If you hold your head high and let those locks do their thing, you will look natural.

Plus, not everyone can grow their hair out. When you are considering adding hair extensions to your hair wardrobe, be sure to think about how to apply them. This is an important step that can make or break the natural look of their hair pieces.

Natural Hair Extensions | Rosalind Stella's Wig Boutique Philadelphia

The Right Application for Healthy Hair

It’s important to apply hair extensions correctly to maintain the health of your own natural hair and to extend the life of the hair extensions. When applied correctly, hair extensions seamlessly blend into your own natural hair. There are a variety of hair extension types and methods to apply them, so it’s also important to choose the right application method for your hair and lifestyle.

Hair extensions that are worn for shorter time periods, like for a fun night out, have a more temporary application over extensions that will be worn in daily life, including through workouts. Temporary applications can be simple clips or pins. More permanent applications include heat or bonding, weaving, a lock or loop, hair tape and glue.

The longevity of a wig depends on how long and how often a person is wearing that wig. If they’re wearing it every day, we often recommend (sometimes) that you buy two wigs so that you have one for every day to knock around, and one to use when you get a little more dressed or things like that.

It really depends. A human hair wig can last you a year or more, or even longer. A synthetic can go 6 months or more, depending. It really depends on the individual and how [the wig’s] properly cared for, which is why we recommend that you bring it to us so that we can help you get that longevity.
