AN OVERVIEW OF CATEGORIES OF WIG WORK HERE AT THE LOUNGE
What is the difference between real hair wigs and synthetic wigs?
Wigs have come a long way over the years and there are many different types to choose for this is where your expert comes in.
Real hair wigs (or human hair wigs) are just that. Wig made with hair someone has given up through charity, to a temple or for cash in various counties around the world.
But just because it says human hair, does not guarantee quality; you still need to be vary aware of not only the hair and how it is attached, but also the quality of the wig cap that holds the hair in place and stops shedding.
Many human hair wigs will need thinning or reducing in bulk, as they are often very generously woven. This is a job for your expert to work on with you in the wig.Synthetic wigs have made the biggest progress over the years, with much more realistic fibers that are even heat resistant. They also have the added advantage of springing back into any shape that has been put into them after washing (as long as you don’t use heat tools to remove the original movement).
Like real hair the styles to choose from are endless and clients often keep several wigs at hand, so that if one is at the salon for styling, they can simply choose it twin to wear, or a completely different style for their collection.
Lace front wigs come in both Human Hair and Synthetic. And it simply mean that the front and sides of the wig have been woven into fine lace individually around the hair line to create a disappearing and there for more natural hairline, undetectable to most eyes.
FULL LACE WIGS
Full lace wigs take the same technique as the Lace Front and continue the look all around the outside areas of the wig. This is particularly advantageous for longer length wigs where the owner wishes to wear the hair up at different times as well as down.
Toppers are a great way to ad fullness back to ladies who have experience natural thinning, or have always had less hair in the front or top areas. During your consultation you can work out colour, length and body (movement, curl wave smooth) required of your topper and once in stock, have it installed in no time!
Mens Toupees normally come longer than needed, as they are made to cover the top of the head shape and blend in naturally to the side and back areas. So colour and texture are key! And Courtney can work with you to make sure of a seamless fit.
ALTERNATIVE STYLING:PONYTAIL, FRINGES
Along with full wigs and pieces. Fashion accessory hair is available in clip in fringes (for those who dare not take the plunge of a real fringe being cut. And ponytails, for a simple way to add length for an occasion or event. Just ask Courtney for details.
PERIOD WIG STYLING
On occasion like charity events, balls, birthdays etc, events have a theme relating to a period in history. If you are needing a wig bought or styled. Or if you need a hairpiece added to your hair to create the look of the period, we can take care of that for you. Just make sure to book in advance to have everything ready for the day
Upon request many wigs can be purchased through us for occasions such as Halloween, concerts, parties etc. The costs will vary according to the level of realness or accuracy is needed for the look/s.
