  • Which style shall I choose for hairloss?

We know it can be little a bit more difficult to choose online the best style for you.

In our salons our staff are extensively trained to help you choose the best style, but we understand that getting to a salon isn’t always possible.

In which case, we suggest trying a wig style that is similar to your own hair cut. We have hundreds of styles available, so why not consider trying a few similar styles in a slightly different colour or cut. Why not try a slightly brighter shade than normal, or a slightly different fringe or length.  By trying a few styles, you can get an idea of what really will suit you.

Remember! You can return any styles you don’t want to wear as per our returns policy.

  • Will it suit me?

Not every style suits everyone, which is why trying them on is essential.  A wig should look just as good as your own hair. Not too big, too stiff,or too shiny.  Why not ask a close friend or family member to help you with your choice. Or, if you  don’t want to do that, try a few on around the house & see how you feel. Catching sight of yourself in a mirror & liking the effect is a great way to see if you suit the style.

  • Will anyone know I’m wearing a wig?

Modern wigs are amazing. The fineness of modern synthetic hair looks completely realistic, and with features like barely visible lace fronts & natural monofilament partings, they are a far cry from the helmet head styles of old. In fact, the best way to tell if the wig suits you & is a good wig, is if no one notices!

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WIG

Washing Synthetic Fibre Wigs

Our synthetic wigs are designed to look and feel like real hair, but cannot be washed in the same way. To ensure these stay looking their best we suggest you follow these simple care instructions. 

We suggest washing your wig every 10th wear or so. Only use
specialist products that are soluble in cool water such as the Synovation products.Hairspray may be used to fix the style or if a glossy finish is wanted use a fibre oil. Do not use heat on synthetic wigs as it will damage the fibre.

Before shampooing, gently remove any tangles with your fingers, a wig brush or a tangle teaser. Fill a basin with cold water (never use hot water) and add a cap full of Synovation shampoo.

Soak the wig for 3-5 minutes, then rinse with cold water to get rid of any residue.

Repeat this procedure with the Synovation Revitalizer, however do not rinse the Revitalizer.

With a towel very gently dab the wig with a towel to remove excess water.

Allow the wig to air-dry at room temperature, by leaving it to hang on a wig stand or styling head.

When the wig is still slightly damp spray it with Synovation Conditiner, this will coat the hair fibres and keep them fresh and deodorised.

Use the Synovation Finishing Spray to finish the look, this acts like a hairspray and will set the style into place without any stiffness.

Washing Human Hair Wigs

Shampoo as above.

You can use gentle heated products to dry and style the wig.

Although our human hair products are suitable for colouring and for use with heated utensils, we recommend that you exercise care, for example, carrying out patch tests before colouring and limiting any processes to a minimum.

Christmas Party Hair

Unbelieveably it’s nearly Christmas again, with all the crazyness that entails. Buying presents, wrapping them, entertaining, cooking…. it can be relentless!

Fortunately there is one thing you won’t have to worry about if you are a wig wearer- and that is long styling sessions to get party perfect hair. Instead you can have the hair you want in a flash!

Here are our hot tips for a glamorous season wearing wigs:

1. Now is the perfect time to try an updated style. Go for one a little longer or shorter than normal- or what about a different colour. Just as you feel if you buy a new dress, a new wig style can really give you a confidence boost!!

2. Make sure your wig is clean and ready to wear for any nights out. A little conditioner and a wash can work wonders.

3. Why not spritz your favourite perfume through the ends of the wig so you ‘waft’ fragrance wherever you walk.

4. This is very important tip, especially at Christmas when you are most likely to be baking. Be extra careful when taking anything hot out of the oven, a blast of very hot air can be quite damaging to wig fibres, causing them to curl or distort. Stand to the side when opening the oven door and be careful!
