Wigs and Hairpieces

    Today, wigs are almost indistinguishable from a natural head of hair. Hand-tied baby hair or inside "hidden" wefting along the front gives a realistic hairline.
   Todays synthetic fibers are much thinner than they used to be, allowing for a gentle "move-as-you-move" action. In many ways, synthetic wigs are easier to handle than natural hair because wig fibers keep the style and shape intact day after day.
   Many styles have open ear tabs which make it easy to wear glasses.

Isn't a wig uncomfortable?
      Years ago, wigs were made with caps which were definitely hot and sticky. Today with the invention of the Capless wig, lengths of fibers called wefts are sewn to cotton or lace stretch bands which shape to the head yet allow plenty of air to circulate. The comfort cap was introduced in the late eighties which features the elimination of netting at the top for added lightness and better ventilation.

What if my wig comes off?
     A wig that fits your head is essential to security. A proper fit prevents slippage. Look for nape adjustments. Almost every wig has two thin Velcro-like adjusters on the back rim of the wig. These can be tightened or loosened for a proper fit. Stretch lace caps also add to a secure, comforable fit. Ear tabs at the temples and extensions at the nape gently shape to the head, keeping the wig centered and secure. Also ask to see wigs of different sizes. Wigs come in ultra petite, petite, petite average, average, average-large, and large sizes.

What color should I choose?
      Choose a color that is as close as possible to your natural color. If hair loss is a possiblility in the future, save a swatch of your own hair for a match. You can always go a shade lighter than your own hair, but avoid going darker. Wigs have a wide range of salon-inspired colors, so you should be able to easily find the shade that is right for you.

What style should I choose?
      Choose a style most similar to the one you usually wear, a style that suits your personality and life style. If you prefer to be adventurous, you may wany to use this time to experiment with that new curly (or straight) look you always wanted.
     If you do change your style, stick to your own color. A change in color and style might be too startling if done all at once.
     We have a multitude of looks, (short, straight, mid-length, curly or wavy) in many varied styles (traditional, trendy, sproty, sophisticated, casual contemporary, business or pure glamor).

Are wigs expensive?
      The belief that all wigs are expensive is simply untrue. Wigs, like any piece of apparel, vary in price depending on the materials and craftsmanship. They can cost as little as $100.00 or more than $3000.00. Price ranges between $100.00 for synthetic and up to $1200.00 for human hair.
    Some insurance companies will allow you to claim your wig. Ask your doctor to write a prescription for a "hair prostheses," and ask your wig professional to state the same on the sales receipt. You may want to do this at tax time as well.
