How Wigs are Made

What is a Wig?wig makers toronto A “wig” is a head covering made of human hair or synthetic materials. People wear wigs to be in style, for aesthetics, theatre performances, traditions, ceremonies, and medical reasons such as cancer. For persons, who are dealing with lack of hair due to various cancer treatments, wearing a wig can provide a means of great emotional support during a scary time in one’s life. See our post Women and Breast Cancer and Medical Hair loss for more information about causes of hair loss.

History of Wigs

Wigs were popular accessories during the ancient times. The British Museum shelters a wig with perfect preserved curls discovered in a temple dedicated to Isis, dating from 1000 BC. In France, wigs gained a huge popularity during the reign of Louis XIV (known as the Sun King). The wearing of wigs represented an emblem of the social status until the end of the 18th century. The beginning of the 19th century brought a series of improvements like the flesh colored net and silk net, as well as regarding the fitting and knotting methods. Hairdressers used to adorn their clients’ head with false buns and curls. In the 1960s, a new fashion came into view: the wigs made of synthetic fibers. Nowadays, wigs are customary accessories in the world of entertainment: theatre, movies, and television performances.

 

How the hair is preparedhow to make a wig

The first stage of natural hair (from humans and animals) preparation consists of dividing it into small bunches that are lying in the same direction. The short hair and broken strands are separated by the help of a wire brush called “hackle”. Each bunch of hair is washed with soap and disinfectant, rinsed, squeezed, and dried. The clean and dried bundles are passed through “drawing brushes” and sorted in groups of equal length. Then they are curled or waved and dyed in the required color by blending several shades to give the hair a natural appearance. The synthetic fibers are manufactured directly into the desired colors.

Adding the hair The foundation is made of net, synthetic materials or flesh colored silk inserted with elastic or small bones to allow a secure positioning. The edges are cut from fine mesh silk that best suits the hair color. The foundation is placed on a wooden block with the shape of a head. There are two techniques used to add the hair to the foundation.

The first (and the oldest) method, is based on wefts sewn by hand to the foundation placed on the block. The second one relies on attaching the hair to the net by the help of a hook called “ventilating needle”. The tool has different sizes and is used to knot the strands of hair directly to the foundation. The wigmaker’s skills count a lot when it comes to deciding the number of knots and their direction in order to obtain a natural look. A full wig made of human hair contains about 30.000 to 40.000 knots and requires six heads of hair.

For more information about the different types of wig caps please see our post, Types of Wig Caps.

 

Styling the Wig The last step is reserved to styling. The wig is placed on a soft block and styled just like a hairstylist does in a beauty salon. The hair is combed using a wet comb; the curls are formed with cotton rollers and after the final arrangement is covered with a net and dried.

How to Wash Synthetic Wigs

synthetic wigsA synthetic wig does not require frequent washing. The general recommendation is to wash the wig after 12-15 wears. It is better to avoid the excessive use of styling products because they increase the wig’s exposure to dust and dirt.

Here are the steps:

Purchase a shampoo especially designed for washing synthetic wigs because regular shampoos are too strong and might fray the wig’s fibers and cause discoloration. Before washing, brush gently the wig with a wire brush or just use your fingers to untangle the fibers if you have a curly wig.

Fill in a large bowl with cold water (never, never use hot water), add shampoo and a teaspoon of baking soda, if the wig caught strong odors (smoke, cigarette) and stir in. Place the wig into the bowl and keep it immersed for one minute. Rub very gently the wig cap to clean it and let the wig to soak for 5-10 minutes.

Rinse with fresh and cool water until all the wig shampoo is gone and squeeze lightly to remove the excess water. Do not twist to prevent fibers breakage. Spread the strands of the wig on a towel for air drying. It never hurts to use a wig stand for this purpose. From time to time you can apply a wig conditioner after washing to revitalize the fibers.

Wait until the wig dries completely to start brushing and styling it. If you brush the wig while is still wet you can deal with serious damages, which will certainly shorten the wig’s life.

How to Get Big Sexy Hair

big sexy hairHow to Get Big Hair Volume

The big hair style has its origins in the late 1970’s. Hairstylists used to concentrate large amounts of hair above and around the head, which confer a larger volume to the hair. The big hair fashion persisted during the 1980s and it was adopted by many celebrities of those times like the beautiful actress from “Charlie’s Angels”, Farrah Fawcet, and the country music singer Dolly Parton. This style requires different types of cutting and combing (the backcombing for example) as well as the application of various styling products (hair gel or hair spray) to create and maintain the hair volume. These days, a lot of celebrities like Beyoncé, Cheryl Cole, Drew Barrymore, Anna Lynne McCord, and Jennifer Lopez turned back to the big hair style and their look is always highly appreciated.

Tips to achieve the big hair volume

A lot of people, who deal with thin and flat hair, are desperately seeking a method to put some volume into the hair. For the beginning, you may try one of the easiest and most accessible ways to refresh a flat hair: change your hair parting and avoid the heavily layered haircuts.

big hair, gorgeous hair

Getting the big hair that you admire so much at your favorite movie stars, involves several techniques that start in the moment you wash your hair. The market of hair care products comes with a huge offer of shampoos and conditioners, but every person reacts different so that a shampoo which goes great for your friend, might weigh down your hair. Before sticking to a certain brand, test it to see if provides the expected effects and then use it with confidence. Reputable hairstylists recommend the volume building hair products based on wheat protein and niacin (the vitamin B3) because they really give a noticeable boost to hair.

After you finished washing the hair, flip it for several times to get rid of excess water and separate the strands. Wrap around your head a microfiber towel (it is more efficient than the cotton one) to draw the moisture and keep it for about 10 minutes. If you do not have enough time for air drying (which is a healthier option), choose the faster alternative: the blow drying method. Before using the hair dryer you may apply a thickening cream or spray to improve the hair’s texture. Blow dry each strand of hair upside down, one by one, starting from back to front and direct the hair dryer to the roots. While drying, change the hair part from side to side so that the hair will acquire more volume because is kept in an unusual position.

When the hair is still wet, massage the scalp with a dollop of volumizing mousse to receive some uplifting help and continue to blow dry. Once the hair is almost dried, apply the styling product and style your hair. Keep in mind this little trick: use the cool setting of your hairdryer for several seconds to cool the hair. Hot hair does not maintain a style for many hours.

Also, it does not hurt to lift up your hair with a large jaw clip while cooling. If you want to add much more volume with minim efforts, put your hair on large rollers when the hair is still damp and continue blow drying. Keep them until the hair cools down completely to get the best big hair effect.

Changing your eating habits can minimize your risk of various types of diseases and possibly even stop cancer in its tracks. Here are some of the best foods proven to prevent cancer: Fruits (foods rich in Vitamin C) Vitamin C, an antioxidant found in most fruits and vegetables These fruits help prevent the formation of cancer-causing nitrogen compounds. Diets rich in Vitamin C are able to reduce the risks of cancers of the stomach, bladder, breast, and many more. Berries Unlike other fruits and vegetables, these tiny bundles of joy have been ranked among the best power-foods that prevent cancer. This is because of an antioxidant called pterostilbene, which is contained in berries in very high amounts, making them one of the strongest cancer preventing fruits around!

How to Get Rid of the Shine on Synthetic Wigs

synthetic wig shopping, wigs torontoDid you buy a new synthetic wig and you absolutely love it except for the shine? Want to get rid of that fake shiny unnatural look? Of course you do, and especially if its a wig that you love everything else about.

The right color, the right fit, the perfect style…but too shiny.

Do not worry.

This look of “to shiny” does not have to last forever and can easily be resolved. This can happen to some synthetic wigs and it has nothing to do with the quality of the wig, just the type of fibre that was used and it can be easily remedied.

Simply take your new wig out of the box and affix it with pins to a styro foam head.

Take a small amount of cornstarch, talc or baby powder and sprinkle it on a blush brush or a wig brush and distribute the powder evenly over the wig. Let the powder stay on for at least two hours and then lightly dust it off and shake off excess powder.

The shine will be gone and the wig will look more natural.

If your wig still has some persistent shine, you can also try washing it. To do this, fill up your sink or basin with 6 cups of cold water and add 1tbsp of vinegar to the water.

Swish the synthetic wig around in the water, then take it out, sop up excess water with a towel and hang your wig to dry naturally on styro foam wig head

No more shine, and a wig that you can fully love all over again.

Types of Wigs

types of wigsIf you are a novice wig buyer you are probably overwhelmed by the variety of wigs that is presented to you. There are many types of wigs in the market, each type designed to suit a person and her needs. You have probably heard of wig types such as lace wigs, synthetic wigs, human hair wigs etc., but what exactly are they made of and how can each material benefit you in a different way? Continue reading to find out.

Synthetic hair Wigs

This is the most common hair wig which you will probably get in any fashion store or wig store you go to. Not only is it so widespread, it is also very cheap. Synthetic hair wigs are made of acrylic fibers of varying qualities. You can get an idea of a wig’s quality by its price, like the old saying “you get what you pay for”, an extremely cheap wig may not match the quality of a slightly more expensive one. Quality does not only depend on how the wig looks, but on its strength and durability as well. The look you get with a wig on is very important and it is imperative that you get a wig that suits you perfectly but the second important aspect of wig shopping is its quality. How long do you want your wig to last? Will you be frequently styling your wig with heat treatments such as heat curling, ironing or blow drying? Ask yourself these questions to come up with the quality you want. Ideally, you would prefer something that would last a long time; therefore, you must pick a heat resistant variety that would withstand heat to a certain extent. A cheap wig will most probably get damaged with heat treatment as the fibers begin to melt. Due to this problem, many manufacturers are choosing protein based fibers over acrylic types, to make the strands more durable and resistant to heat. Regardless of these disadvantages, a synthetic wig is the cheapest of all wigs and it is very easy to take care of one too.

Human hair wigs

A human hair wig is made up of real hair and the quality depends mostly on the origin. Asian hair such as Chinese hair will be cheaper than other hair wigs; however, they often lag behind in quality. Indian hair wigs are often the best in quality when it comes to Asian hair however, European or Eastern European hair are considered to be best in quality. Virgin human hair wigs are non-processed hair wigs that have not undergone any styling or chemical treatments and are sold in their natural state.

Full-lace Hand-tied wigs

Full lace and hand tied wigs are often made with human hair; however, there are a few synthetic versions with hand tied caps. Hand tied caps are made of a silk meshwork that may cover the wig cap entirely or cover it in different sections which are sewn together and armored with a silk or satin ribbon like material. The mesh is also applied in lace front or full lace wigs. The hair is often knotted in a mesh like or waffle pattern in the hair cap.
