Hair loss can be emotional. For many people their gorgeous locks are apart of who they are. Now, they cover up with a hat or headscarf to disguise their thinning hairline. While frequently covering up a thinning hairline is an early sign of hair loss, many people are unaware of the emotional side of hair loss. Here are some of the things people with hair loss may experience:

The Emotional Side of Hair Loss, and How We Can Help

  • Low self-esteem levels, self-confidence and other measures of self-worth decrease when hair loss occurs.
  • Styling hair may become frustrating because of the inability to style hair as one would like.
  • There’s a fear of loss of personal attractiveness and not looking attractive to others, specifically the opposite sex.
  • Concerns of teasing and humiliation by others.
  • Subconscious emotions of envy and jealousy of others who have a full head of hair.
  • Decrease in social activities with friends and family or avoid going out at all except for work.

Wigs 101: What You Need to Know About Lace Front Wigs

  • Lace front wigs are constructed with a sheer material in the front around the wig hairline and towards the crown. This allows for a seamless look against your forehead and means that you can pull your hair back or part it.

  • Those wigs you see in the movies or in theater? Lace front wigs. Their natural appearance and ease of wearing making lace front wigs popular in Hollywood and on stage.
  • Because of the more delicate material that lace front wigs are constructed from, they can be more likely to rip or tear if not maintained correctly. Always wash gently and store on a wig stand.
  • The delicate material can also add to the cost of the wig.
  • Their versatility and natural appearance make lace front wigs one of the best options to transition from your own hair to wearing a wig.

One of the most important aspects of wearing a wig is ensuring it fits properly. That doesn’t just mean that it is the right size and fits snugly and securely – it also means that the wig fits your lifestyle and personal style. The more a wig reflects your personality and your facial features, or the more custom the wig is to you, the more natural it will look. So what can you expect when cutting and customizing your wig at Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique?

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.

We do a lot of styling. If you take a look at our stylist there, she’s actually styling a wig now. She is setting, she is washing, she is setting it, she is putting it in a special wig dryer that we have so it’s not too high heat.

If you’ve always dreamed of long, flowing locks, hair extensions may be the perfect solution. You get gorgeous long and layered hair without all the time it can take to grow your own hair out. 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.


Wearing a wig and caring for a wig is definitely different from your own hair, depending on whether you’re getting human hair or synthetic. Getting a synthetic fiber will take its own shape each time you wash it. The general rule of thumb is to wash it every 28 to 30 wearings. You wash it in a synthetic wig shampoo that we do carry here. That way, you’re not losing the luster or the shine, or anything like that, not causing frizzies on the fibers themselves.

When you do wash it, and you hang it to dry overnight, in the morning you literally just give it a shake and it goes back into its original style, just like that. That’s the benefit of a synthetic.

The benefits of human hair are, obviously, as wonderful as our synthetics are and they look just like human as well, but with the human hair, the feel of the human hair, the natural way that it lays on your head, and the way that it feels on your head. The advantage is that you can use heat on it. You can curl it, you can blow it dry, although we suggest that you bring it to us, the experts, to help do it, because we know best how to keep it from knotting up and keeping its luster and shine and staying in perfect condition.

Whether your hair is thinning from age or you have naturally finer or thin hair, a wig may be a good option to boost volume. And there are plenty of options outside of a full wig. A half wig, topper or hair piece may be just perfect to boost your own natural hair around your crown. Now sure what a half wig is, or how to wear one? Read on!

What is a Half Wig, and How Do You Wear One? - Wig Salon Philadelphia

Half Wig to Work With Your Own Hair

A half wig is just like is sounds, a wig that covers only half of your scalp. It can be inserted with a comb just like a headband, or some clip in like extensions. A simple tease of hair or a headband will cover the insertion points. Half wigs come in as many colors, cuts and textures as full wigs, so it’s easy to find one that perfectly matches your own hair. And some wigs can be dyed and styled, making the blend between your own hair and the wig even more natural.

Simple to Wear

The beauty of a half wig is the ease and natural appearance. You get the time saving trick of wearing a wig, but the natural appearance of using your own hair. Combing, clipping and teasing usually takes less than five minutes. Part your hair in the front and towards the crown, then clip it out of the way. Clip or comb in the half wig in the front/top and back/bottom. Then comb and tease over the seam. If you have the time and the right half wig, you can use heat tools to style the wig fibers and your own hair together.  To preserve the life and bounce of your half wig, take it out at night.

My name is Jamie, we’re at Wig Elegance but we do have Wig-a-Do and Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique as well. In 2009, I lost my mother to breast cancer, and I was extremely depressed, under the covers, did not want to get up. My husband thought it would be a good idea to buy the salon for me, a chance for me to give back, to be back with other cancer patients and do things for them that I wasn’t able to do for my mother. And that’s really what it’s all about.

The benefits of coming into a wig salon are that you get the personalized attention, you get a full consultation, full education, you get the expertise of our licensed stylists who can help you decide what colors and styles best help your features, your skin tones. The personalized care and the compassion, that our staff has toward the women and men as well that come in here, is overwhelming; the many times that we sit with our clients and cry with them.

Services we provide here are cutting, which is free with the cost of your wig, styling, sizing (if it needs a tuck or stretching if it needs to be made slightly larger) washing, setting, full education. If you have questions and you need to come back, you can come back and we will still have you come in, sit you down, and show you what you’re doing wrong and how to apply the wig properly to your head. Because there’s nothing more important than how [the wig’s] sitting on your head. It needs to be on properly so that it looks like you don’t have on a wig. If you don’t look good, we don’t look good, and that’s basically very important to us – that you walk out this door and you know how to wear your wig properly.

Customer service is first and foremost to me. It’s the most important thing. Every one of our staff members know that that is what our clients look for – customer service, customer service, customer service. I don’t want anyone to ever walk out of here not feeling that they were treated amazing, that the red carpet was rolled out for them. Everybody who walks out this door means everything for us. We like to build relationships with our clients.

It’s not just slapping a wig on your head and out the door, “Okay we’ve made a sale.” It’s more about let’s learn about you, let’s sit with you, let’s find out what your going through, what you need this for, and then we want to know that you’re going to come back to us and build a relationship. Maybe we’ll be your new salon. Maybe our girls will be your new stylists, because that’s who you’re going to come to care for your wig. If you have questions, we’re just a phone call away or drop in anytime you want. So whatever you have an issue or question with, we’re here to be at your service.
