How to Manage Your Wigs and Hairpieces When It’s Humid?

Humidity is no fun when you want to have a nice, fun hairstyle to go out in. The moisture in the air causes real hair to frizz if it’s too dry, or to go limp, which makes all that time you put into styling your hair go to waste!

Fortunately for people who wear wigs or hairpieces, synthetic hair is a great option. Unlike natural hair wigs, the hair strands of a synthetic piece won’t react to the increased moisture in the air as easily. Because of this reason, it’s not uncommon for people to own both natural hair and synthetic hair wigs. Switching between different hair pieces helps to extend the life of your pieces – and it adds some variety to your hairstyle choices, too!

If switching hair pieces is not for you, here are some options to manage your hair during humid weather. Luckily, it’s not too different from what stylists would normally use on every day human hair as well.

Use only hair products that contain no alcohol

Hair products that use natural oils are gaining popularity, and for good reason. Alcohol strips the hair dry, which makes it easier to frizz during humidity. You also shouldn’t wash your hair pieces too often, due to this reason as well.

Choose a humidity-friendly hair style

Opt to style your hair up in a ponytail, braid, or bun your hair while it’s wet to minimize the frizziness. (Remember not to pull too much on your scalp when creating this style to avoid damaging the hair or risk making your hair loss worse.) Also, try not to go for styles that use a blow dryer, curling iron, or flat iron – the added heat will clean the moisture out of your hair making it more susceptible to the effects of humidity.

Use hydrating shampoo, and shampoo infrequently

Washing your hair too often can do more harm than good, so it’s best to space out your shampooing so that you can have clean hair but not dried up hair. There are shampoos and conditioners on the market especially formulated to fight frizziness, and which add hydration back into your hair.

Apply anti-frizz hair serum after washing

Using a serum is a great way to add moisture back into your hair and help reduce frizzing. Some products may contain silicone, and that’s okay, but just be mindful that it can weigh your hair down (which may be okay if the style you want calls for it).

There are many serums on the market. It’s always good to pick several that fit in your budget and try out each for at least a week and see which ones do well for you and your lifestyle. Serums also work great on synthetic hairs, if you’re looking for that added climate protection.

Get layers added to your hair

If your wig is long and straight with only one length, then consider taking your wig to a stylist to add layers. This won’t necessarily aid in the fight against humidity, but it will add interest and volume to your hair without additional styling, decreasing your need to add more product or heat to your hair.

Men: How to Add More Volume to Your Hair and Hairpieces?

If you’ve checked out the top hair trends for men in 2018, then you’ll notice that voluminous hair is in. Not only that, but hair that has volume looks healthier and gives you more options for styling.

It is important to note that the process for adding volume is different for men who wear hairpieces, but it doesn’t mean it’s harder! If your piece or wig is made of synthetic hair, then the most important difference is that you shouldn’t use heating tools like a blow dryer or flat iron, as they could damage your hair. Of course, even on real human hair, heating tools are often damaging to your hair if it isn’t protected by some kind of serum.

After you’ve used one of the methods below to create volume, it’s critical that you use some kind of styling product that doesn’t weigh down your hair. We’ll provide some suggestions at the end.

Using a blow dryer

Using this tool is probably the most popular way to add volume to your hair. Again, if you’re wearing synthetic hair, it is highly suggested you skip this and go for the next method.

Before you expose your hair to potentially damaging heat, you should apply some kind of heat protectant product to your hair or hairpieces. They come either as a serum, cream, or spray.

After applying your protectant, take a comb and grab a small chunk of hair, and point the dryer in the opposite direction of where your hair naturally lays. So if your hair lays to the front, you should point the dryer so that the wind goes back behind you. This will help your hair stand up, giving you the volume you’re looking for.

Using dry volumizing powder

This is likely the best option for men who wear wigs or hairpieces with synthetic hair. But even if you don’t have synthetic hair, this is still a great product to try.

Also called texture powder, this looks and feels a little like baby powder. You apply it directly to the roots of your hair, massaging it into your scalp and the roots of your hair, then move up the hair strands to add lift to them. After the powder sets in, you can then style your hair with volumizing hairspray to give it the shape you’re looking for.

Using volumizing hairspray

Using hairspray is generally advised to be applied after the previous two methods, but oftentimes when you’re busy and need a quick fix, this alone could work! On its own, this method may not hold your style for as long as it could when used alongside a blow dryer or texture powder, but it’s great for when you’re preparing for a quick meeting and need to get out the door fast.

Using your comb, bring small pieces of your hair up and spray from the roots up along the strands. After applying to the places where you want volume, you can use the comb to shape your hair to the style you want.

Keep in mind that using fingers to style your hair may weigh down the style later in the day. The oils from your fingers may transfer to your hair, which can make style up-keep more difficult later on.

If you have stubborn or synthetic hair, you might want to try applying a serum or hair lotion before using hairspray. There’s also volumizing shampoo and conditioner products that you could use in the mornings to help build more body to your hair.

Find what works for you

No matter your hair type, the hairpiece you use, or the time you have, you’ll have plenty of options! The key is to try different methods to see what works for you. Some men even apply their product before bed so that it has overnight to set.

Even if the style you’re looking to achieve doesn’t necessarily need a lot of volume, these options can give lift to your hair and add some life and movement to it.

The Best Hair Moments from Celebrities at the 2018 Oscars

Many people may watch the Oscars to see if their favorite film will win prestigious awards. Others watch it for the stunning looks that come across the red carpet, from gorgeous gowns to sleek suits. However, we watch the Oscars for the incredible hairstyles!

The ‘dos that recently hit the Los Angeles red carpet set the trend for what we’re likely to see for the rest of the year. Stylists and celebrities brought their A-game to show that no matter how little or how much hair you have, you can always look glamorous.

From hair color to creative uses of hair extensions, here are our favorites from this year.

1. Naomi Campbell

Leave it to the world’s most famed and fabulous supermodel to leave us breathless with her look. That long, sleek hair is a great look not just for her, but for any woman who wants to show the world that she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Even if you have short hair, you can still achieve this look. Use hair extensions and a straightening iron with some heat protectant serum and voila! You’ve achieved this beautiful style. Since you’ll be applying heat to your hair, we also suggest you get real hair extensions, instead of a synthetic hairpiece, if you are going to add length.

2. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

One of Hollywood’s power couples took to the red carpet with effortless glamour. The mirrored parting of their hair adds great symmetry to this photo, adding to their overall look! They are giving us classic Hollywood style that’s been modernized, with Liam’s tousled but controlled hairstyle and Miley’s elegant two-toned dress.

Going out with your loved one for the night? Don’t be afraid to match your looks! Guys, you don’t need a black tux to make a statement – your hair is where you can express your style and creativity. If you don’t already have the hair for this look, we encourage you to get a hairpiece with some length so that you can change it to match looks for the night!

3. Allison Janney

This elegant and talented actress gave us a wonderfully creative yet simple hairstyle on the red carpet: a “fishbone braid” looped into a bun! This updo is both subdued and sophisticated, and we love how versatile this look is.

It’s true that you may need some length to achieve this style, but you may consider getting a bun or extension that can attach to you like a hairpiece. Some hairpieces can be long and thick – like a ponytail extension – which many people can use to achieve a look like this one.

4. Timothée Chalamet

Hollywood newcomer Timothée Chalamet shows that men can rock long hair and look effortlessly cool. This hairstyle gives off a vibe that’s slightly rebellious, yet charming and approachable.

Guys, if you’re ready to try a longer hairstyle, remember that hair extensions and longer hairpieces can be for you too. Play with the style to see what works for your personality and look! Another benefit to getting long hairpieces is that you can always cut go shorter if you find that it isn’t for you.

Silver Hair and Ghosted Trends

The recent hair color trends are off the charts amazing. While you might think that colors are going bigger, brighter, and bolder than ever, you’re in for a surprise! Lately, the beauty world has been fawning over trends that are soft and desaturated. Hair color that is silver, smoky, or “ghosted” are what’s hot right now, and they aren’t going away any time soon. These colors are fabulous, unique, and also office appropriate!

Silver Hair

Silver hair, and the various shades on the silvery spectrum, is inarguably what launched this new trend of smoky styles. For many of us, the popularity of going silver was surprising. In the past, dyeing your hair was usually to cover up those grays, silvers, and whites! However, there is no denying how gorgeous these colors are. No matter what your skin tone is or what type of hair you have, silver looks fabulous. It doesn’t have to be a severe change; you can make it as subtle or bright as you want it. This empowering trend allows you to rock this look no matter your age or career.

Smoky Hair

Smokey purple and denim blue are the next on our list. These colors are full of variety and ways to make the trending look your own. Not only do you have the spectrum of color to choose from, but you can also combine with a touch of silver to add the smoky effect and create a unique color all your own. We love these colors because they can be beautifully subtle or awesomely bold, while still looking elegant and refined. Dyed hair is no longer just for the teens! It’s classy, chic, and professional.

Ghosted Hair

Ghosted is the name of a new hair trend that’s sweeping the beauty world, but it isn’t something to spook you out of giving it a try. Ghosted hair is the latest revolution in these soft and desaturated color trends, and it is stunning. Using light tones to wash down the color, it leaves behind just a hint of the color, or a “ghosted” version of the dye. It’s such a subtle implementation of color, and yet this trend is still bold, fresh, and unique.

We believe your hair should be an expression and reflection of you. However you see yourself, we are here to help you craft the look that is uniquely you. Contact our team of hair professionals today for an appointment at 800-966-9505!

Men’s Hair Trends for Spring 2018

Gentlemen, spring is around the corner and it’s the perfect time to change your look. Don’t get stuck playing it safe! Discover a new style that makes you excited to look in the mirror and show off that brimming confidence to your friends and family. We have some ideas for you that promise to be huge this spring...

Blowouts
Blowouts take long hair on the top of the head to a new level. Designed to look devil-may-care and effortlessly cool, this style has a ton of possibilities. You can combine it with a high fade, short side, or with an undercut. However you choose to style it, we love it.

High Fades
Fades are one of the most popular styles to rock this spring. Let’s start with this high fade and long textured or curly fringe on top. This style is great for those of you who love a shorter haircut that’s low-maintenance and easy to style. It doesn’t require as much product or time to own this look, so you can go about your day with easy confidence.

Medium Fades
For a more polished look, try a medium drop fade with a side part. This look is a classic, and it’s definitely on trend this spring. You can leave it longer on top to keep your styling options open. This allows you to rock a messy effortless look, or you can throw a little product in it and smooth it over for a night out.

Low Fades
The last fade we have for you is a low skin fade with a comb over. I know you’re thinking a comb over is a bad idea, but this is not your grandfather’s comb over! This low skin fade is will give you a clean look, and you can make it your own by adding a few lines or designs in the buzzed sections.

Updated Comb Over
For those of you out there who aren’t into the fades, a medium-length comb over with short sides is a sexy way to handle those locks. Its natural flow gives you an effortless vibe as if you just woke up looking absolute best. It also requires very little work to maintain and style.

You deserve to rock the hair you want this spring and we can help! Contact us today at 800-966-9505 to schedule an appointment, and our team of hair professionals will take care of you.
