Getting your lace front wig positioned in the perfect place takes practice. More than practice though, it takes the right adhesive. Choosing the right adhesive can be difficult, but, thankfully, for lace front wigs there are two options for wig adhesive: tape and glue adhesives. If you’re asking how to choose the right adhesive for your lace front wig, here is a quick guide for both to help you decide.

How to Choose the Right Adhesive for your Lace Front Wig

Tape vs Glue Adhesives

Tape adhesives for lace front wigs are essentially double-sided tape, sticky on both sides, made specifically for wigs. One sticky side of the tape sticks to your lace front wig and the other sticky side attaches to your skin to hold the wig in place. As for glue adhesives for lace front wigs, they work along the same principle.

The wig-specific glue is applied to the edges of your lace front wig, then it needs to sit for a bit until it becomes tacky. Once the glue is tacky, you attach the glue edges to your scalp. Both adhesives are contact adhesives, meaning they contain ingredients that need to work properly when they come in contact with skin, including their durability, the dermatological impact on your skin, and the ease of their application. Soluble glue adhesives for lace front wigs can be water-based or solvent-based. Water-based adhesives are less invasive to the skin and don’t produce an allergic reaction. Solvent-based adhesives are harsher on the skin, but they may last longer than water-based adhesives.

To check if you’re going to have an allergic reaction to your adhesive, you can apply a small amount to your hand, let it dry for half an hour, then remove it. If the spot becomes red and itchy over the next 24 hours, you are allergic to that glue adhesive.

More than Just Adhesive

No matter which adhesive you decide to use, you need to realize that you’re going to need more than just the tape or the glue. Many adhesive kits come with the adhesive, scalp protectors, fray block, conditioner for the hair, and products that will help remove the adhesive from your scalp and wig. The best way to decide which adhesive works best for you is to try both and see which one feels more comfortable.

Wigs are an excellent option for women suffering from damaged hair or hair loss. Wigs not only help you feel beautiful, but more confident as well. With wigs, you can choose a different hairstyle for every occasion. The choices are unlimited! But you probably have one main wig that you wear a majority of the time. Wearing one wig all the time can cause some wear and tear so you ask yourself: “How can I extend my wig and make it last longer?” You’re in luck, because there are a few tricks and products you can use to extend the life of your wig before being forced to buy a new one:

How Can I Extend My Wig?

Knot Sealer

Most wigs are lace-front wigs which means the hairs are individually knotted and tied to the lace. Constantly wearing your wig creates friction on these knots: the wig cap rubbing against your scalp as you move around, putting your wig on and taking it off, etc. This friction causes the knots to loosen which then causes shedding. Shedding will result in gaps in your wig cap and alter the appearance of your wig. You can easily avoid this process with knot sealer. There are many options for knot sealer so talk to you wig expert at Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique for advice on which one is best for you and your wig.

Apple Cider Vinegar

No matter what type of wig or hair you have, apple cider vinegar is a great tool to keep your wig hair looking as pristine as the day you bought it. Apple cider vinegar works like silicon mix, just without the silicon. It seals the cuticles of the hair, keeps your hair soft, and tangle and frizz free.

Fray Block

The material of your wig cap will ultimately begin to fray as you wash it more often. Much like knot sealer, fray block will help keep your wig from fraying and unraveling too soon.

The most important thing to do to extend the life of your wig is to use proper wig care products. While your wig may seem like real hair, it is important to remember that it needs extra care. For more tips on how to extend your wig and keep it wearable for longer, call the experts at Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique today at 215-945-4900.

Synthetic wigs have many benefits and are good for a wide variety of reasons. They can help cover up thinning hair, hair loss from chemo treatments, or they can be used to help give you more confidence in your everyday life. Many synthetic wigs come with straight hair to make it easier for you to style, but sometimes a girl needs some curl! Adding curls can give your hair more volume and give you that girly feeling, but can you ever use a curling iron on a synthetic wig? With proper care, you’ll find that your synthetic wig will hold curls beautifully.

Can You Ever Use a Curling Iron on a Synthetic Wig?

Determine if Hair Can Be Curled

Before you just start curling your synthetic wig like you would real hair, you need to determine if your particular wig can in fact handle the heat from a curling iron. Every synthetic wig comes with a product label on the inside of the wig. The product label will tell you how much heat the synthetic hair of your wig can handle. If, after reading the product label, you are still unsure about how much heat your wig can handle, you can test a piece of hair to see if it melts. Choose a piece of hair that can easily be hidden just in case your curling iron does melt it. Many synthetic wigs today are made to be heat resistant in order to let styling be easier, but it is always a good idea to check before diving in to your styling.

How to Curl Your Synthetic Wig

Curling your synthetic wig is just like curling real hair. After you’ve determined the level of heat your synthetic hair can handle, divide your hair and portion it out. If you want small, tight curls, you’re going to want to divide your hair into a lot of sections. If you want bigger, looser curls, divide your hair into a few sections. Turn your curling iron on the lowest setting, which, in most cases, is the “warm” setting. Before curling a section of hair, you want to get it wet, but not to the point where it is dripping. Wetting your synthetic hair can help prevent it from melting and helps the hair hold the curl better. Continue until your whole synthetic wig is curled.

If you’re unsure about curling your own synthetic wig, you can call or stop by Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique and let our wig hairstyling experts take care of it. Our experts know everything about wigs and will be able to style and curl your synthetic wig with no problems. Give us a call today at 215-945-4900.

We’ve Moved, But We’re Still the Same

Moving can mean a lot of change. When you move jobs or move houses, you have to pack up your old way and unpack in a new, different space, changing along the way. This new space won’t be the same as our old location, which means we’ve had to change things up and find out what works with this new layout. Our store may look different in designs and layouts, but everything we’ve brought with us is exactly the same. We’re just at a better, bigger location! All our wigs are still with us, as well as our amazing hairdressing staff. You can rest easy knowing this change is one for the better.

When you come to visit our new location, you will be greeted and treated exactly how you were at our old location: fun with a personal touch. You can come in, meet with our hairdressing professionals, talk about what kind of wig you’re looking for all the way from style to color, get fitted for your wig in private fitting rooms, and leave our new location with your wig in hand and a smile on your face. If you don’t leave with a wig in hand, you’ll still leave with a smile because you know your custom wig is on its way. We hope our new location is more accessible to people in need of wigs and that you come in and visit us today!

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. If you’re wig is in need of professional de-frizzing, contact Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique today at (215) 725-3930.

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 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 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.


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.

Ah, it’s summer!

If you can’t decide which wig to choose from, let us give you the lowdown of the best wigs just in time for summer.

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.

If you would like a new wig for summer, stop by Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique on Bustleton Avenue or call (215) 725-3930 to ask about our wide selection of wigs for summer.

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.

Here are some of the things people with hair loss may experience:

The Emotional Side of Hair Loss | Rosalind Stella's Wig Boutique

  • 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.

  • Versatility is part of what makes lace front wigs a top choice.
  • You can have a human hair or synthetic hair lace front wig. They come in virtually every style, color, length and texture.
  • 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.
