How to choose the best short wig?

When choosing any style of wig, you should find a color that is best suited for your skin type by asking for advice from the sales associate. You’ll also need to choose the best style of short wig to complement your facial structure. Consider maintenance for your wig, as some curly wigs may require more care. You can choose a human hair wig or one that is made with synthetic fibers. There are advantages to each, although human hair has a tendency to become tangled and damaged more easily than synthetic.

After you’ve identified the shape of your face, you can choose from various styles that will be most flattering for your unique facial contour. Many wig salons or boutiques will have a brochure or an online guide showing which styles work best for various face shapes. If you’re fortunate enough to have an oval-shaped face, almost any style of short wig will be flattering for you. If your face is full and round, avoid excessively wavy or curly short wig styles, as this may accentuate the roundness of your face.

You will also need to obtain the correct size for your short wig. To find an accurate fit, you should measure the circumference of your head. Wrap a tape measure around your head, beginning above your ears. You should be able to find a chart online that indicates whether you have a small, average-sized, or large head, according to your measurements. Use this as a guideline when shopping for your wig.

If you are on a budget, you’ll most likely be concerned with cost of the wig. Although it might be tempting to purchase a bargain-priced wig, you might be compromising quality. In addition to looking unnatural, a cheap and poorly made wig may not hold up well to everyday use and care. A wig is an investment, so look for quality and buy from a reputable source.

Choose the most natural looking wigs possible, so it won’t be easily detectable. Feel the texture and notice how each strand of hair falls. A human hair wig will generally be more realistic in color and texture.

Try on several wig styles and look at yourself from all viewing angles. When you shop for a wig, bring along a friend to get another person’s opinion. Do not buy any wig that makes you feel hot and uncomfortable. Although a short wig can be more comfortable than a longer style, make sure it is lightweight and does not slip.

Why is the Wig So Popular?

A wig is a head of hair made from horsehair, human hair, wool, feathers, buffalo hair, or synthetic materials which is worn on the head for fashion or various other aesthetic and stylistic reasons, including cultural and religious observance. The industry choice, however, is yak hair, which is not only inexpensive, but close in consistency and appearance to human hair as well. The word wig is short for periwig and first appeared in the English language around 1675.

Some people wear 100 human hair wigs to disguise the fact that they are bald; a wig may be used as a less intrusive and less expensive alternative to therapies for restoring hair. Wigs may also be used as a cosmetic accessory, sometimes in a religious context. Actors, on the other hand often wear costume wigs in order to better portray a character.

The 18th century saw elaborate wigs with mile-high coiffures and highly decorated curls. White powdered wigs with long ringlets became the order of the day. In fact, some imaginative ladies had wigs with small birdcages complete with bird, on top of their heads. For wigs, big hair was definitely the in-thing.

Another memorable royal who was known for her elaborate wigs was Queen Elizabeth I of England. Wigs were so widespread that virtually all the elite wore wigs or elaborate hairstyles during this time. It is not surprising that by the end of the 18th century the number of French master wigmakers had skyrocketed from the fashion center of Paris to other European capitols and finally to provincial cities as well. In addition to the guild master wigmakers were thousands of journeymen wig makers and artisans traveling the European countryside producing wigs clandestinely. Eventually, wigs were no longer an exclusive luxury item, an exclusive marker of high birth or a status symbol worn by the privileged few. A shorter, less elaborate wig, called the bob wig, was very popular in Colonial America at the beginning of the 18th century.

The word “wigs”, itself, is taken from “periwigs” which was the name of the particular long, curly wigs that became popular after Charles II was returned to the throne in 1660. Some historian attribute popular fashion status of the periwig to Louis XIII. The periwig simulated real hair and was primarily used for adornment or to cover the loss of real hair. Periwigs became extremely sought after it achieved status symbol. Having become a tradition of the English Court, the periwig is still seen today in modern British courts.

By the end of the 18th century, young men began wearing their hair in a more natural state. Although the powered look and the use of wigs continued, it was not longer a fashion look worn everyday but reserved for older, more conservative men and ladies who were being presented at court. With the civil unrest in France against the excesses of the nobility and the association between fashion, wigs and the aristocracy, the importance of wigs in France also began to slowly fade away during the time of the French Revolution.

The start of the 20th century saw the use of more hairpieces for women being used to enhance hairstyles. However, wigs have never regained the immense popularity that they once enjoyed.

The way to keep synthetic hair tangle free

Synthetic hair contributes to wigs, hairpieces for women, and extensions at a low cost. However, caring for your new hairpiece or extension is a little different than caring for human hair, especially when it comes to detangling and styling. Without proper care, that lovely style will be a tangled mess. There are a few techniques to keep that hair wearable for a long time.

The way to keep synthetic hair tangle free

Instructions:
1 Add the appropriate amount of wig shampoo or mild detergent (specified on the bottle; usually one to two caps) to the basin of cool water. Gently submerge the hairpiece, swishing it slowly and dunking it up and down. Don’t rub or scrub, or you’ll end up with a tangle beyond saving. You can let the piece soak in the cool water for a few minutes, then rinse gently.

2 Dry your hairpiece, first by holding it over the basin and letting the water drain, then by setting it on a wig form or Styrofoam head and letting the hair sit at room temperature until it is completely dry. Put a few towels under the form to catch the drips. When drying your wig, you can gently blot the hair with a towel, but don’t rub or squeeze.

3 Spray a good coat of wig sheen spray over the fibers once the wig is dry. This product is silicon based, and will make the hairs a bit more slippery and easy to comb.

4 Use the wide-toothed comb if your wig is a straight or wavy style and, starting at the bottom, gently begin to comb. Work your way up the hairpiece, teasing out any tangles and smoothing the hairs down. Use the wide-toothed comb to groom a curly, short piece as well, reshaping the curls around your fingers as you go. Work on small sections at a time. For a final finish, you can use your fingers to arrange the curls.

5 Wash the synthetic hair gently with mild shampoo, and use a natural-hair-safe silicon spray, if your synthetic hair is attached to your head in loose extensions. Gently comb or finger brush synthetic hair extensions into place.

Tips & Warnings
Synthetic wigs can be reset or restyled by spraying them with setting lotion, rolling them, and letting them sit under a dryer on very low heat, or simply at room temperature until they dry completely. Never attempt to comb through spiral curls or dreadlocks of any length. This will destroy the curls or dreads. A qualified wig resetter is the best option for restyling these pieces. If you find a tangle that is completely set in, you can cut into the mat, holding the scissors vertically. It may only take one snip to make the mat removable with the comb.

High heat is a death sentence to synthetic hair. Keep those tresses away from blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. Friction is a wig’s enemy. Proper storage of your hairpieces is a must. Keeping them on a wig stand is the best; alternatively, you can put them in a cardboard box that is large enough for the wig, but small enough so that the piece doesn’t slide around and mat the hairs together.

What you will need to begin:
Synthetic Wig
Tweezers
Comb
Alligator Clips
Protective Shield (Transparent/Clear)
Foundation or Concealer
Wedge Make-up Applicator Sponge
Hair Weaving Needle and Thread
Small Angled Make-up Brush

Step 1: Braid Your Hair
Decide where you would like to place your part and braid your hair accordingly. I chose a side part for this tutorial.

Step 2: Determine the Location of Your Wig Part
Get your wig and decide where you want to place your part. Once it has been determined, carefully pluck away the strands of hair within the part to give it a clean look. Finish by trimming the lace around the hairline.

Step 3: Place Wig On Head for Accuracy
Place the wig on your head again to make sure the part is in the correct position. Pluck more hair away from the part if necessary.

Step 4: Apply Foundation or Concealer
Flip your wig inside out and lightly apply concealer or foundation to the parted area. I used a handy wedge foundation applicator sponge.

Step 5: Apply the Foundation or Concealer Thoroughly
Apply the concealer or foundation throughout the part and down towards the hairline.

Step 6: Attach the Wig to Your Braided Hair
Attach the wig to your braids. Make sure that the wig is secure and does not move. The part should lie flat against your scalp. If the wig fits too tightly, be sure to modify your wig cap before attaching it to your braids.

Step 7: Comb Hair Away from the Part
Comb all hair away from the parted area.

Step 8: Clip Down the Parted Hair
Clip down the parted hair. There should be no loose fly-away strands visible in the parted area.

Step 9: Apply Protective Shield
Use the clear/transparent Protective Shield. The Protective Shield will blend with your foundation/concealer and give an scalp-like appearance to the parted area.

Step 10: Be Sure to Fill in Holes
Fill in the holes and apply down to the hairline.

Step 11: Apply Protective Shield to Skin
A light coating should be applied to your skin right at the hairline so there is no line of demarcation.

Step 12: Allow to Dry Completely

Step 13: Apply More Solution If Necessary
Be sure that there are no holes visible in the parted area.

Step 14: Continue to Dry the Parted Area

Step 15: Style Your Hair
Style your hair to achieve the desired look.

How to Wash Synthetic Hair Pieces

If you’ve invested in a synthetic hair piece (otherwise known as a wig), it will definitely be important that you know of the ways to best care for it. This would help extend its life and would therefore result in you getting the best value for your money. Here are some of the most important things to remember if you’re looking to find out how to wash your synthetic hair piece:

Know of general care strategies for your synthetic hair piece. First of all, it’s important that you store your wig and to wear it properly so that you won’t have a hard time cleaning it. It’s best to store it on a wig stand so that it would keep its shape; also make sure that you keep it away from the elements (such as dust and dirt) so that your wig doesn’t absorb them. Also, as much as possible make sure that your own hair is clean (and not sweaty) when you put on your wig; this will keep your wig clean as well. And please, don’t lend your wig, unless you’re absolutely sure about the good hygiene of the person you’re lending it to!

Know when to wash your wig. If you wear your wig everyday, you would have to clean it about once a week. Generally, you’d have to clean your hairpiece after six to twelve wears.

Remove all tangles. Right before you wash your wig, use a straight comb to untangle the strands. Comb the hair the normal way. If your wig is curly, however, you should use a wide-toothed comb for this step in order to prevent hair breakage.

Use lukewarm water. Remember: never, ever use hot water on your wig as this could damage fibers and hair strands. Test the water on your wrist to see if the temperature is just right. Place the water in a basin.

Know what shampoo to use. Some experts say that you should use only specially-formulated wig shampoo on your synthetic hairpieces if your wig is not made out of human hair. However, other experts believe that you may use regular shampoo as long as you choose a mild formulation. If you want to be extra cautious, perhaps it’s best that you use wig shampoo to clean your hairpiece.

Pour in the shampoo on the basin of lukewarm water. Mix the shampoo in with your hand so that the shampoo will combine well with the water. If you’re using a wig shampoo, carefully follow the manufacturer’s specifications  about the amount that you will use; if you are using regular shampoo, use about two teaspoons of the shampoo. Use a small container to gently pour the mixture on the wig. Work the shampoo throughout the strands of the wig carefully. Afterwards, rinse well with lukewarm water.

Use conditioner. Do step 6 again, but this time use conditioner. Rinse off the conditioner thoroughly but gently.

Dry the wig. To dry your hairpiece, simply use a clean towel and blot it dry. Never wring the wig, as it could easily lose its shape that way. You should also never use blowdryer on your wig. You could leave it someplace that is dry and breezy, but never in direct sunlight. Once the wig is thoroughly dried, untangle the hair on the wig again using an appropriate comb.  And remember never to comb your wig when it is still wet

Remember, your wig must have cost you good money, and you should definitely aim to get your money’s worth by making sure your wig will last a long time.

Types of hair synthetic hair extensions

Hair extensions are made from a range of human and synthetic fibers. Synthetic fibers include Kanekalon and Toyokalon, and can differ from brand to brand. Synthetic hair in general is far less expensive than human hair, and is available in a wide array of colors and textures, from natural to extraordinary. However when considering hair extensions you must keep in mind that synthetic hair is just that synthetic and can not withstand hot temperatures so straightening and curling the hair is not an option as it will singe. Human hair is available in many different grades, and may be advertised by ethnic origin; India, mainland China and other countries in continental Asia are the top suppliers for ‘virgin’, or unprocessed hair.

Synthetic hair is made of a wide array of different synthetic fibers. Synthetic hair, just as human hair, comes in weave (weft) and single strands for braids. Synthetic hair does not last as long as human hair because it gets quickly damaged from the sun.The quality of hair varies greatly, and if well maintained, synthetic hair can last up to a year. It will never look as human hair, as it is stiff and not bouncy at all. Synthetic hair is much less expensive than human hair.

No, we can’t. Heating appliances such as curling irons and straightening combs generally should never be used on synthetic hair. There are newer versions of synthetic hair from some brands that claim to allow styling with lower temperatures of heating appliances. Generally people should steer clear of such claims because the golden rule with synthetic hair is that heat is not an option. Synthetic hair is better used for shorter wigs. Typically when the synthetic hair is shaped it’s best not to change it, it is “What you see is what you get”.Synthetic Fibers are made from synthesized polymers or small molecules. The compounds that are used to make these fibers come from raw materials such as petroleum based chemicals or petrochemicals. These materials are polymerized into a long, linear chemical that bond two adjacent carbon atoms. Differing chemical compounds will be used to produce different types of fibers. Although there are several different synthetic fibers, they generally have the same common properties.

There are several methods of manufacturing synthetic fibers but the most common is the Melt-Spinning Process. It involves heating the fiber until it begins to melt, then you must draw out the melt with tweezers as quickly as possible. The next step would be to draw the molecules by aligning them in a parallel arrangement. This brings the fibers closer together and allows them to crystallize and orient. Lastly, is Heat-Setting. This utilizes heat to permeate the shape and dimensions of the fabrics made from heat-sensitive fibers.

Also because of the indiscernible wig cap, you’ll be able to part your hair anyplace you desire without worrying that the unattractive foundation is likely to be visible to other folks. The lace is trimmed and tailored-fit and is glued to the skin over the hairline. When attached correctly, the lace is unnoticeable since it blends well with the skin. Nonetheless, since just the front section of the lace front wigs is constructed of lace as well as the back portion is made of a thicker and much more observable material, it doesn’t be advisable to wear your hair up in a large ponytail or a bun because doing thus can show the unsightly foundation to the rear that you’d want to hide from folks.
