A Look at Designer Wigs

Made from 100 per cent human hair designer wigs are specially designed in a variety of styles, textures and colours for women.

How to prepare your designer wig

When you unpack your wig it may need to be shaken out if it's been flattened with packaging. You may need to use a comb or your fingers to untangle parts of your wig.

Because good quality designer wigs are made from 100 per cent human hair you are able to use curling and straightening irons to help style your wig how you desire.

When you're not using your wig, hang it on a wig stand to keep its natural shape.

How to put on designer wigs

Braid or wrap your hair so it is as flat as possible, avoiding a lumpy or uneven appearance. Use a fishnet wig cap to firmly secure your hair.

Place on your wig making sure that the tag is at the back, positioned by the nape of your neck. Make sure the front of your wig is aligned evenly with your natural hairline. Adjust the ear tabs to ensure your wig is properly in place - the tabs should be in front of the ears.

If your wig is not fitting or staying in place, you can use the hooks that are located inside the wig at the nape of the neck and secure them in place.

How to put on the designer wig attachment

Gather your natural hair and secure it into a snug bun or ponytail. Place the hair attachment over your bun or ponytail and pull the drawstring to close the attachment. Tuck the string under the attachment edge and use hair pins to secure your hair attachment further if needed.

Different types of designer hair wigs

There are several different types of human hair that designer wigs can be made from and these include:

  • Remi
  • Chinese
  • Yak
  • Indonesian
  • Indian
  • European

Indian and Chinse hair are the most common types of human hair used for wigs because they are stronger and thicker in diameter. These hairs are also more able to withstand chemical processes that the wigs go through to make them appear more shiny and smoother, and less tangle-susceptible.

Lace front wigs

Lace front wigs are wigs that have strands of hair individually knotted to a synthetic mesh material. They can come in either full- or outer-perimeter- caps. The caps are natural-coloured and blend into the colour of your skin. They are also designed to simulate hair growing out of the skin.

Remy hair

Remy hair is superior human hair grade that is collected from a hair donor. Remy hair has the cuticle layer still in tack to produce hair with a silky texture with a subtle wave running through it. The hair is hand-tied to the wig cap in the same direction as it does on a human head. Because of its appearance, feel and construction Remy hair is a very natural and easy-to-manage style wig.

Indian hair

Indian hair is from people of Indian descent. With the closest texture to European hair, Indian hair is finer and softer than Asian hair, and fine texture and longer length make it one of the more favourable hairs for designer wigs.

European hair

European hair has a variety of textures ranging from quite fine to very coarse. A superior grade of hair it can be ready for market chemically treated or natural.

Maintaining your wig

Wig odour

A musty odour indicates that your wig is soiled with perspiration and dirt and needs to be cleaned. Take your wig to a wig clean service to expand the life of your wig. When your wig is being serviced thoroughly clean and condition your natural hair.

Wig flyaways

If your wig hair is prone to 'flyaway' you can tame the loose hairs with a flyaway wig luster.

Using wig spray

Wig spray should be used in place of regular hairspray. Wig spray is made from less alcohol and is less damaging for wigs. Regular hairspray can also accumulate on your wig and lead to a heavy build-up of product.
