We Love Viola Davis

Viola1We love Viola Davis. Not only is she a spellbinding actress–just check out her work in How to Get Away With Murder, Doubt, and The Help–but she is a strong, beautiful woman.

She’s also a stylish woman who always looks great and isn’t afraid to change up her hairstyle. She can rock anything from a short, natural look to a sleek bob without missing a beat, and for that we thank her!

Wig Guide for Round Faces

oval_1The round face has a rounded chin, a wide hairline, and fullness in the cheeks. To accentuate your features and to lengthen your face, add volume on top but avoid volume on the sides. Look for styles that have height or long, wispy side layers to make the cheeks appear narrower. Famous round faces include Ingrid Bergman, Mariska Hargitay, and Kelly Clarkson.

If you have a round face, consider a style that has volume on the top—NOT the sides—to lengthen the look of your face. Also consider mid-length and long wigs with wispy, close side layers to lengthen your profile and to narrow your cheeks.

Some wigs to consider include the Brittany Wig by Paula Young®, a long wig with layers of relaxed spiral curls; the Elizabeth WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a short style with volume and flirty flips up top; and the Beth Wig by Paula Young®, a mid-length shag with wispy side layers and side-swept bangs.

Wig Guide for Oval Faces

round_1The oval face is longer than it is wide, and the jaw is narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval face is so proportional–with no individual feature dominating–just about any cut, length, texture, or style will look very nice. Famous oval faces include Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Aniston, and Cindy Crawford.

Lucky you! If you have an oval face, you can wear just about any style. Short, mid-length, and long wigs will look good on you, as will any hair type–straight, curly, or wavy.

Some wigs to consider include the Ainsley Wig by Paula Young®, a lovely long wig with wavy layers; the Alex WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a mid-length layered look with side-swept bangs; and the Daisy WhisperLite® Wig by Paula Young®, a short, updated shag with fun, piecey layers throughout.

How to Find Your Correct Wig Size

wig_measureBefore beginning, flatten your hair. Use a cloth tape measure or a string to ensure accuracy.

Step 1. Measure Around Head: Starting at your natural hairline in front, follow your hairline to just above your ear. Measure around the back to the bend in your neck, just above your other ear, then around front to where you began. Record this measurement.

Step 2. Measure Front to Back: Measure from your natural hairline in front and over the crown to where your head meets the top of your neck. Record this measurement.

Step 3. Measure Ear to Ear: Starting in front of one ear where your hairline ends, bring your tape measure or string up and over the crown to the front of your other ear. Record this measurement.

Step 4. Check the Sizing Chart: If all three of your measurements do not match exactly to one size in the chart below, choose the size that corresponds to your largest measurement. The Velcro® tabs inside each wig adjust up to 1″ larger or smaller for a secure fit.

Our aim is to help cancer survivors regain their self-esteem and to feel beautiful once again. It’s our way of letting them know that our hearts and thoughts are with them, that they are not alone, and that they are truly amazing.

Approximately 12% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer. No doubt, each of us has known a family member, friend, or coworker who has faced such a diagnosis. It is because of this shared experience and connection that we believe it is our responsibility—as a company and as individuals—to raise awareness and to help those in need.

Treatment for breast cancer can be a painful experience, and the hair loss associated with chemotherapy can compound an already stressful, emotional time. Over the past decade, Specialty Commerce Corp has donated more than 68,000 wigs, hairpieces, hats, and turbans to women’s cancer charities and service providers so that women with hair loss due to chemotherapy might reclaim a part of themselves and their everyday, pre-cancer lives.

In addition to our own significant monetary and in-kind contributions to these many worthy organizations, we also donate returned nonrefundable clearance and final sale merchandise on our customers’ behalf. In these cases, each customer receives notification of her donation, as well as a receipt to use for charitable-deduction purposes at tax time. Specialty Commerce Corp does not receive any tax credit, financial gain, or other benefit for such donations.

You Can Get the Look!

At the June 1 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards, bigwigs from the worlds of fashion, movies, TV, and music came together to honor the year’s best womenswear, menswear, and accessories designers. Congratulations, winners!

Of course, everyone in attendance looked amazing!

Fresh off her best-actress win at the Critic’s Choice Awards, Empire’s Taraji P Henson looked radiant in a stunning crimson Vera Wang gown, and her hair looked fabulous in an airy, effortlessly elegant shoulder-length style.

Singer Janelle Monae captured the happy, artistic spirit of the evening in a custom Tadashi Shoji cape dress with shimmering metallic filigree detailing, and her hair, styled into a fun, funky braided fauxhawk, paired perfectly with her dress.

Love these looks but don’t think you can replicate them? Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a celebrity with an on-call personal hairstylist to look red-carpet ready. A wig is the answer!

Our Gail wig by Vivica Fox can give you the same full, lightly tousled feel of Taraji P Henson’s bangless bob-like look. And our Kayden wig by Especially Yours can give you a cool braided look reminiscent of Janelle Monae’s unique hairstyle.

So…try a wig and try some transformation!
