Quick & Easy Wig Styling Tips

For Curly Wigs:
Give the wig a good shake, then gently style the curls with your fingers or a pick comb – not a brush. We suggest the Styling Brush and Pick Comb to go with your curly wig.

For Wavy Wigs:

Brush lightly using short, lifting strokes – just enough to add volume and create body. We suggest using the 5-Pc. Styling Comb and Brush Set with your favorite wavy wig.

For Straight Wigs:

Brush with long, even strokes for a smooth look. Start at the ends and work your way to the roots. We suggest the Static-Free Brush to pair with your straight wig.

For Short Wigs:

Many wig styles, especially shorter ones, need only a good shake and they’re ready to wear. We suggest the Wig Brush for short wigs.

An Important Note About Fiber & Heat:

Human hair wigs can take the heat, but synthetic wigs can’t, so be careful! Never expose a synthetic style to excessive heat (even standing in front of an open oven, or over a hot stove), as this will damage the fibers. Curling irons, flat irons, hot rollers, hair dryers and other heat styling tools should only be used on 100% human hair styles or one of our heat-friendly synthetic wigs.

How to wash your wig!

Washing instructions will vary, depending on if your wig is human hair or synthetic.  Most wigs are made of synthetic hair, allowing for the easiest washing and styling.  Determine if your wig is synthetic or human hair and follow the appropriate care instructions below.

SYNTHETIC WIGS:

  1. Gently brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush.
  2. Add one tablespoon of wig shampoo to a sink filled with cold water.
  3. Immerse wig for one minute and agitate gently. Do not rub.
  4. Rinse the wig gently in cold clear water twice or until thoroughly rinsed.
  5. Blot the wig gently with a towel. Do not squeeze or wring.
  6. Apply conditioning spray very lightly over wig, spraying 10-12 inches from the wig.
  7. Allow the wig to air dry on a slender object like a can of hairspray or a shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel.  Styrofoam heads may stretch the cap.
  8. Do not use a hair dryer. Air dry only.  You may gently style the wig with your fingertips.
  9. Brush wig only when completely dry. Do not allow the wig to dry in direct sunlight.

HUMAN HAIR WIGS:

To achieve a natural appearance and unique color variations, all human hair wigs are chemically processed.  To give your wig the longest life, it is very important to use sulfate-free hair care products that are specifically made for chemically processed hair.  To wash your human hair wig, follow these steps:

  1. Detangle the wig using a wig brush or comb.  Start at the ends and work upwards to the base of the cap.
  2. Rinse the wig in cold water, with the water flowing in the same direction of the hair to avoid tangling.  Do not soak your human hair wig in a basin.  This will cause the hair to tangle and mat together.
  3. Using your fingertips and phosphate free shampoo specifically for human hair wigs, distribute the shampoo evenly throughout the hair.
  4. Rinse with cold water to remove shampoo.  Rinse so that the water is flowing in the same direction as the hair.
  5. Remove excess water by gently patting with a towel. Do not wring or squeeze.
  6. Condition the wig with wig conditioner, using your fingertips to distribute the conditioner evenly throughout the hair.
  7. Remove the conditioner by rinsing with cold water.  To remove excess water, pat gently with a soft towel.  Do not squeeze or wring.  Allow the wig to air dry on a folding wig stand or a tall can of hairspray.

Nicki Minaj: From Colorful to Couture!

The 2014 BET Awards – the annual event that features performances and awards for the top artists in R&B, pop, hip-hop and rap – were held on Sunday, June 29th in Los Angeles, California.

This year’s winner for Best Female Hip Hot Artist looked absolutely ravishing in subdued, natural makeup, a classic yet curve-loving dress, and long, wavy locks with a center part!

Could it be that her days of psychedelic makeup, crazy wigs and colorful ‘do’s are over?
