Wigs, Weave and Everything Between
It seems like our fashion faves are changing their hair as frequently as they change their socks. We can't lie, we're inspired! But we all know, frequent hair coloring, braiding, curling and straightening can lead to us rocking a bald head by force. It seems like the trick is wigs, weaves and extensions! Let's talk all things related.
Classic Full Wig
The classic wig is still in use but mostly on the big screen and for stage performances. Dolls aren't really wearing full-on classic wigs for style But this staple has it purpose. Classic wigs can be applied with combs, sewn on or glued down. Gluing is the least popular classic wig application.
minimal damage to natural hair
synthetic and human hair options
not very realistic
can move shift or slide
Lace Front Wigs
The lace front wig is the new classic wig. EVERYONE has one. These provide much more versatility than classic wigs and are a semi-permanent option. These also come in synthetic and human hair options. This is not the option for a novice. We suggest a professional for application. They can be sewn on or glued in. Let's review the pros and cons.
minimal natural hair damage with proper care
can cause extreme hair damage if not properly applied
more costly than traditional wig
self-maintenance not really an option
Extensions are a far-reaching group, but today we are going to talk about weft extensions, fusion extensions, clip-ins and tape-ins. Weft extensions, also known as tracks, can be glued, sewn or taped but not all clip-ins and tape-ins are on a weft. Fusion extensions are glued in with heat. With extensions, the pros and cons really lie in the application, so we'll discuss that.
Can damage hair
Doesn't bode well in heat
Easy to maintain
Hard to remove
Can be damaging if not cared for by a professional
Clip-Ins and Tape-Ins
Least risk of natural hair damage
Can easily come out
Braids, Locs and Twists
Braids, locs and twists are all applied how they sound. Additionally, they can all be applied through latch hooking or crotcheting.
Can cause hair breakage
Application process can take several hours
