I love the wig so much, it’s so beautiful and I think it really compliments my tan skin. I think the wig will look so majestic om other people with even lighter skin. I love the fact that the wig has highlights and different shades of color in it. It gives it alot of texture and a more natural looking look compared to other wigs. — rosemaniego Jan 02, 2017

Spring is such a beautiful time of year, usually spring means more rain fall and moisture. This is great for plants and the environment, but this means changes for personal routines as well. It also means a change in style, most of us have heard the age old saying “spring cleaning” translating into; out with the old and in with the new! So what are some small changes spring influences?
With warm temperatures approaching, yet still experiencing moisture in the air human hair and skin can be greatly affected. Hair can tend to become more dry from the rising temperatures but can also wave or curl up more due to the moisture, what this really means is more frizz 😩
Personally my favorite way to treat frizz is an easy DO IT YOURSELF mixture. One of my favorite conditioners is from Pantene labeled “Damage Detox” it has a great smell and is extremely hydrating. Using an empty plastic spray bottle which can be purchased at a Dollar store, fill half with water and half with conditioner. Shake the contents until blended and then spritz over hair and especially on the ends. This approach will help tame frizz while also hydrating and moisturizing hair without causing product build up 👍🏻
The worst part about product build up is having to constantly rewash the hair. If you are using this technique on a human hair wig or bundles, it will make it much easier to avoid having to wash the hair as often. Mousse and hair spray are useful products, however too much can cause hair to become “crunchy” and again back to the washing board. Haha!
Just like skin human hair needs moisturizing nourishment which we sometimes have to take into our own hands depending on the weather conditions we reside in. Another useful product that carries a little more intense hydration would be organic coconut oil. Organic coconut oil does amazing things for natural hair, including promoting hair growth, but because wigs and extensions cannot grow anymore, this product is not recommended for hair pieces, only naturally grown hair on the scalp.
You do not have to be bald or balding to wear a wig! Wigs and hair pieces can sometimes carry a negative reputation because it can be a sign of “disability”; not being able to grow enough/any natural hair. However Wigs and Hair pieces should be praised for the amazing help and confidence the products have brought to consumers, bald or not!
Talk show host and author of article “Let’s Talk Wigs”, Wendy Williams dictates, “Women wear wigs because they’re fun, they let you avoid frying your own hair, and they look great. I’m doing my best to change people’s minds, but it’s still a daily struggle to educate them about the benefits of this little-recognized fashion item” (nytimes.com). Williams often wears wigs on her hit talk show although she has much of her own natural hair.
The number one reason to wear wigs and other hair pieces should always be to protect the natural hair/scalp, but another reason is just for pure fun! Trying out trendy new styles and colors without the fear of permanent damage or dislike is so easy! Especially with the ever-changing world of fashion, it can be costly and time consuming to repeatedly keep natural hair up. Wigs typically allow for years of usage, a HUGE money saver.
Wigs have the versatility to be able to change daily or weekly! How else are celebrities able to maintain gorgeous and healthy natural hair while constantly changing color, length, and cut? With the help of hair pieces, wigs, and extensions celebs can easily have hot pink, long, locks one day and a short, subtle, blonde bob the next day.
Some of the most popular celebrities are wig fanatics! For example Kylie Jenner, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna are fashion icons setting trends daily and rather than spending hours in the hair salon weekly they can switch up styles in seconds, we have all been in that moment where we wanted to do something drastic to our image, it is just as easily possible for anyone to achieve awesome texture and style minus the damage and expenses. It is easy to be unique while still being you at Uniwigs!
Frontals and Closures are all the rage! The purpose of Frontals and Closures is to minimize the damage done to leave out. Leave out being the small portion of a person’s natural that is left out when getting weaved/sew in extensions.
A Closure is a small, measurable to palm size, hair piece and a Frontal is a larger piece, closer to 2.5 palm sizes.
Before Frontals and Closures the left out natural hair was still exposed to damage unlike the rest of the hair that is braided up for growth. Thanks to the hair pieces all leave out can be protected!
There are different types of Frontals and Closures. The most popular is the Lace based. The base of the hair piece is Lace and transparent in order to conceal natural hair and give off a realistic appearance. However some wearers have complained that this base is too “obvious” and gives off a Wig-like look. A simple trick to assist in hiding the lace is to use a bit of concealer make up or dark eye shadow to dab along the fabric showing, or another type would be the Silk base, the hair is attached to a Silk base which appears extremely realistic and scalp-like.
Frontals and Closures are very temporary! Typically lasting around 2-4 weeks. The reason being that a person’s natural hair is experiencing growth (a good thing!) and therefore the hair piece will begin to life and loosen. This is the purpose of a correctly applied Frontal or Closure so it is a good effect.
Closures and Frontals can be expensive. It is best to invest in a good one, a consumer wants to be sure they purchase a manageable hair piece because these Hair pieces are attached at the top of the head and are very noticeable. This piece is also what brings the entire hair style together so it should match the extensions as well.
Hair shopping can be so confusing! There are so many different types and textures it is incredible. Most are aware of some of the types such as; Brazilian or Indian hair, however there is so much more to it than just the origin!
Different hair types consist of where the hair has originated from such as Peruvian, Malaysian, and so on. The importance of understanding the hair origin is to successfully match a person’s natural hair type to the extensions. If a person’s natural hair type is coarse and thick, the person would want to avoid fine and silky hair or else it may appear obvious defeating the purpose.
Texture is different than type. Texture varies upon personal preference. If a person has naturally curly hair they may want to choose curly extensions to match their own, but if a person has naturally wavy or in between straight and loose wave, they may want to choose something that has the ability to be straightened or curled.
Reverting back to types, Indian, Brazilian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Cambodian, Chinese, Malaysian, Italian, are just a few of the popular hair origins. Every type is known for having different qualities.
- Indian hair is best described as light weight, finer, yet voluminous and coarse. It is of extremely high quality and if it is real typically holds a higher price than some of the other types.
- Brazilian hair is also very popular, it is known for fantastic versatility and softness. The hair is usually durable and allows for easy styling.
- Peruvian hair comes somewhat finer than most other types, the hair is great for those who have naturally thinner hair. Most of the Peruvian hair is shiny and sleek making it highly attractive.
- Malaysian hair gives a coarser and fuller feel. The strands are usually not shiny and tend to create more frizz, however, the hair is also known for incredible thickness and density.
*This is just a tiny fraction of all the numerous hair types.
All hair types and textures are beautiful, the best way to find what hair is best for yourself is to identify the qualities of your own hair. What do you want to enhance? (Volume, fullness, sheen) What type of hair will best match your own?
There is an abundance of hair installation techniques today! All hair types differ causing the evolution of techniques and because of this it is possible for almost anyone to have hair extensions. Lucky us! Hair extensions are exactly what it sounds like, an artificial growth appearance to a person’s natural hair. The addition of length, volume, texture, or even color to a person’s natural hair has become so popular and creative that natural hair growth is no longer always necessary, some pieces have been created to look so realistic someone can be completely bald underneath and no one would ever know!
To begin, there is the very popular clip-in or clip-on method. Clip extensions typically come in a set of multiple hair pieces or one long piece with a few tiny clip-combs attached that snap on and off making this a very temporary, yet easy technique. This method is not too damaging on the natural hair, but the catch is the wearer is required to have at least some natural hair to cover the clips.
Another very popular method that is also longer lasting is the sewing or weaving of hair bundles into a person’s natural hair. The natural hair gets braided very tightly so it is secure for about 1-3 months! However this style can sometimes limit versatility, for instance some braiding/weaving techniques do not always allow for high ponytails or buns.
Next, tape-in or glue-in extensions are on the rise for their longevity. Small strands of hair are attached to a person’s head using glue or tape adhesive and last around 2-6 months. These extensions are also great for styling the hair with ease when trying to achieve up-dos, unfortunately if applied incorrectly the technique can be extremely damaging to the natural hair and has had some what of a bad reputation for the damage.
Moving along to the micro-link or bead method, small strands of hair are instead attached with beads in order to avoid any damage to the purchased extensions nor to the human’s hair the duration period of this style is between 3-8 months and can be done on mostly all hair types.
All hair extensions methods are fun and beautiful, find what is right for you by educating yourself to the different techniques to avoid frustration or damage! 😉
All hail hair! Ever wondered how hair extensions and wigs became so incredibly popular? The use of hair pieces is now a world wide practice!
According to “The History of Hair Extensions” hair extensions first began with, “Egyptians in 3400 BC. They wore wigs, sewn-on hair pieces and braids that were made of human hair…” the article goes on to explain, “they used resin and beeswax to attach the extensions. Bright blue, red, gold were popular, in addition to the conventional black” proving hair has always been in style (curioushistory.com)
There is an enormous amount of ways to add hair to a person’s natural head, from weave in styles, to tape, glue, beads, wigs, half wigs, frontals, closures, toppers, and that does not even begin to cover it! Depending on hair type every style differs as working best therefore one way is not necessarily better than another. Author Imaan Imran of “What is the History of Hair Weaves?” informs, “…much of modern hair weaving is in influence of African American culture. Since the 16fh century, women brought as slaves had elaborate and intricate hairdos complete with twists and braids” giving a hint of insight on how the creative braid work has been adopted (Imran).
Some believed wigs and hair extensions originated from America’s first President George Washington notorious for a voluminous, fluffy, full head of hair. Many portraits have surfaced of President Washington with long, luscious, locks, and it has actually been proven the hair was all his! Kudos Mr. President! So how did said myth arise? It is argued Washington’s hair was adored and future wigs/hair pieces were then created to resemble the President’s hair with the assumption the wig would offer a professional look, complimenting President Washington.
The funny aspect is the same concept happens all the time today. Many fashionistas like us here see a beautiful hair style and set out to have it replicated with a wig or hair piece. One of the best inventions ever right?! How soothing yet exciting is it to know there is always the option of having a short, edgy, bob cut for a day and the security of being able to return to a long, sexy, style the next.
The famous London Fashion Week is finally approaching! Beginning February 17th through February 21st, 2017 fashion, styles, and beauty trends, from around the world will be showcased in the UK.
London Fashion week is so exclusive the city prepares Designer Showrooms! On the official LFW website, the About section describes, “Taking part in London Fashion Week’s Designer Showrooms gives brands the exposure they need to make new connections with buyers and press, service existing clients and reconnect with those who you have worked with in the past” the showrooms are one of the unique differences between London Fashion Week and any other a fashion show (www.londonfashionweek.co.uk/Designer-Showrooms/About).
The very first London Fashion Week began in 1984 featuring only a few designers vs. LWF of 2015 where the posh schedule displayed over 83 designers and showrooms to match, in a 5-day time span. Some attendants of the 1984 event organized originally by the British Fashion Council for the London Development Agency included: Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, and Princess Diana of Wales and even showcased designers John Galliano!
UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson claimed, “I am delighted to support British fashion, which continues to be at the forefront of innovation. From how our designers are working and presenting their collections, to the fast-paced dynamism of the retail sector, fashion is utilizing the latest technologies to ensure this important industry continues to generate billions for our economy. London is developing a reputation as one of the tech capitals of the world, but it is already a global leader for fashion” showing immense love and support of the huge population that is the fashion industry (Johnson).
Back in 2010 London’s Fashion Week became the first ever fashion week to present the event online, every catwalk since has graced the web with a full broadcast. London’s Fashion Week has become so recognized that it now ranks amongst New York, Milan, and Paris making its name as one of the “Big 4” in fashion weeks.
Unfortunately, London’s Fashion Week is invite only. Boo! However, it has been reported that there is possibility for future ticketed shows, as for now there are over 60 screens outside the event that display the entire show and also a full live-stream on the London Fashion Week website.
Today is the day Donald J. Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States in Washington. Trump maintained the typical image on the Inauguration Ceremony as usual—black suit, miserable look and the eye-catching flowing sparse “beautiful hair”.
Referring to Donald Trump, I believe the name of another person would occur to you immediately. That’s King Henry VIII of England. In addition to a few similarities in their family background and political career, their characters are surprisingly similar. Henry enjoyed the attention of beautiful women. “He engaged in serial marriage, but in contrast to Trump, his divorces were hard won, so much so that beheading became another option for ridding himself of a troublesome wife. Like Trump, Henry enjoyed the adulation of the crowd; he liked nothing better than to appear at a joust or royal parade,” says Virginia Mason Vaughan, professor emerita and research professor in the Department of English at Clark University in Worcester, Mass.
Of course, both had multiple wives. Henry VIII married 6 women. One died, one survived, two divorced and two beheaded. Lucky of the wive’s of Trump. At least none of them lost their heads over divorce. However, all of them had something in common—wearing glossy long hair. Henry VIII’s six wives all wore red-golden hair or dark brown hair; for Donald Trump’s three wives, except the current wife with a dark brown hair, the other two are both blonde hair. This King of England seemingly preferred dark-hair ladies. Ivana Trump was Donald Trump’s first wife. The couple married in 1977. Bangs were Ivana’s standard hairstyle, either wearing a bun or handing down. Ivana always kept her straight or slanting bangs.
Donald Trump’s second wife was Marla Maples, who undoubtedly liked three-to-seven layered hair whose length was to shoulder. This hairstyle made her full of well-educated beauty. It should be noted that Donald Trump married Marla Maples in December 1993, the result of an extra-marital affair.
His current wife, Melania Knauss, wears charming dark brown hair. She was originally a model. The good look and sexy figure finally attracted Trump. Nevertheless, someone pointed out Melania’s academic background was fabricated and her speech script during the general election was a copy of Michelle Obama’s.
Well, except these, another highlight of Donald Trump is his henhouse-like hairstyle. Na matter where he goes, it must be the focus of the crowd. Trump’s life in meme picture! Maybe that’s why he always favored women with BIG hair!
