How To Wash A Synthetic Wig

Step By Step Guide To Washing Your Synthetic Wig

It is essential to care for your synthetic wig to preserve it’s longevity and with gentle brushing and styling and careful storage, you really can get multiple wears from your favourite hair piece with it looking like new. Washing and conditioning your wig is an ideal way to remove any unnatural shine, particularly in regards light or bright coloured designs and will be required after 3-8 outings of your new hair.

Our step by step guide requires no skill or specialist equipment just patience and a gentle hand!

It may be tempting to wash your wig with the same products as your natural hair. Your favourite shampoo and conditioner are ideal but remember that your wig is made from synthetic materials, closely resembling a soft fabric. You will therefore need a small amount of fabric conditioner and treat the hair much more carefully than you would your own to achieve the best and least damaging results.

Only wash your wig when you feel it is absolutely needed and give yourself plenty of time. Ideally you will want to leave it to dry overnight. Washing your wig too frequently will adversely affect the fibres and shorten it’s life span.

Step By Step Guide To Washing A Wig

  1. MIX IT UP: First up, you need to prepare your magical concoction. Using 10 pence piece sizes add 3 X Shampoo (shampoo designed specifically for dry hair is great for wigs as it will moisture and nourish the hair) 3 X Conditioner and 2 X Fabric Conditioner into your empty spray bottle. Top it right up with water and give it a swirl ensuring a nice diluted potion. If needed detangle your wig first using a wide tooth comb or brush. This paddle brush from Toni & Guy is ideal.
  2. GET SPRITZING: Depending on the length of your wig, you can either hold it up or place it on a wig stand / door knob / can of hair spray / boyfriend’s head and simply coat all the hair as evenly as possible with your spritzing bottle.
  3. LET IT FLOW: No need for any magic words or wizard spells, allow the mixture to penetrate the hair fibres for a few minutes and prepare for the next step by filling a clean basin with lukewarm water. Hotter water is fine to use on heat resistant wigs but will relax the wig style slightly if used on kanekalon and other fibres that are not fully heat resistant.

9 Tips For Making Synthetic Wigs Look More Natural

How To Make Synthetic Wigs Look More Natural

Any synthetic hair, in any form will ALWAYS need some styling before you strut your stuff and start performing epic hair flips. Be it hair extensions, clip in ponytails, half wigs or full wigs – it is absolutely essential that you take some simple steps to make the hair look as natural and realistic as possible.

These relatively quick and easy tips can be performed with the wig already in place or on a wig stand / head.

Tools and products you will need for the magical transformation;

  1. Paddle Brush
  2. Concealer
  3. Small Angled Brush
  4. Setting Powder
  5. Dry Shampoo
  6. Fan Brush
  7. Tweezers
  8. Translucent Powder
  9. Hair Dryer

(All beauty products pictured available from Look Fantastic)

Step 1: When your wig arrives, it is super important to remove from the packaging and shake it out. Your wig has been packed flat and in transit for hours or sometimes days. Have you seen those exposé documentaries? Your package has more than likely been thrown, tossed, squeezed, folded, squashed and more by stressed and hungover delivery drivers. 🙁

Step 2: Blow it out! Choose a cool setting on your hair dryer and blitz your wig. This separates all of the fibres which in turn adds texture and reduces shine.

Golden Globes 2013 Hair Special

Last week, the TV and Film Hollywood elite gathered together for the first big awards ceremony of 2013 to pat each other on the back. Gowns, minis, stilettos and suits swamped the red carpet for the serious sport of pouting and posing before the first Golden Globe was handed out. We take a look at the hair trends of the glamorous event…

Up-Do’s Vs Down-Do’s

Long, flowing locks seemed to be the most popular among the ladies, with the side pinned, curled look proving most common with a host of beaming beauties. Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba sported the ever popular ombre trend with a sun kissed twist.

Jessica Alba Long Curly Hair

Jennifer Lopez Hair

Blonde bombshells were a plenty with ‘Homeland’ winner Claire Danes and ‘Les Miserables’ star Amanda Seyfried the best of the bunch.

Claire Danes Hair

Sharing the award for most glamorous up-do…. Nominee Amy Adams, super sexy Katharine McPhee and best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence. These ladies nailed the celebrity hair trend with an A* for make up too.

Amy Adams HairKatharine McPhee Hair

Jennifer Lawrence HairBest Original Song winner Adele and Best Actress winner Julianne Moore went for a more traditional hair style with plenty of volume and lift.

Adele HairJulianne Moore Hair

We are not really sure why Megan Fox (global sex bomb) and Isla Fisher (ex-Home & Away  actress/serial shopper/other half of Borat) were at the awards ceremony but they both looked quite beautiful and looked distinctly similar…..

Megan Fox HairIsla Fisher Hair

The barely-there make up trend was rampant (basically celebs wearing loads of make up to look like they are wearing hardly any at all) with both ‘The Girl’ star Sienna Miller and ‘The Newsroom’s’ Olivia Munn opting for, dare we say, boring and bland hairstyles to complement the au naturale statement.

Sienna Miller HairOlivia Munn Hair

 

 

 

 

 

Two beauties stood out with pretty unique styles. ‘Zero Dark Thirty’s’ Jessica Chastain channelled old Hollywood glam with a delightfully coiffed do and Fashion Police favourite Kelly Osbourne rocked her lavender purple locks with class.

Who Got It Wrong?

The usually perfect Kate Hudson chose a stunning full length gown with intricate bejewelled collar – then went and ruined it by sporting a messy down do. This collar deserved some of the spot light and a sophisticated up do (a la Amy Adams) would have looked much better. Another fashion fail (in our opinion – as this one got mixed reviews) was Mr Seacrest’s better half – Julianne Hough. Fairytale style dress – jaw droppingly gorgeous – paired with a rock chick hair style…..errrr – we no likey. This may have worked at the Grammys but the Globes require a more refined choice.

Lady Gaga In The News – Again!

Lady Gaga continues to be the talking point of many a tabloid. This week she has been criticised for gaining weight, labelled a ‘Slut’ by a New York City politician, pictured smoking what looks to be a marijuana cigarette, photographed in a very bizarre (even for her) oversized costume and sited as being pregnant!

The busiest time of the year for all wig and costume suppliers is bearing down on us, with new collections now available for an exciting Halloween. Costume wigs are vital ingredients for an authentic Halloween outfit and here we present the top 10 picks for the scary season;

10. The Jessie J / Mia Wallace Wig

 

Jessie J Black Bob WigAn iconic character from the classic Pulp Fiction movie, and a popular choice for Halloween, is the chain smoking, hip swinging, drug taking Mia Wallace played by Uma Thurman. An easy costume to replicate – think fake cigarettes, white shirt, cropped black trousers and a bloody nose – with the all important blunt, black, bobbed wig. An instantly recognised look and a great alternative to the more traditional costumes.

9. The Brown Granny Wig

Brown Granny Costume Wig

A versatile wig for a range of characters. Ideal for the dictator-like Professor Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter films and a perfect accessory to any Susan Boyle costume. Popular with both men and women and easily styled to create a unique ghost or zombie hair style. Add some blood, dried leaves and use your hands to make the curls more untidy and – voila!

8. The Marie Antoinette Wig

Marie Antoinette is an eternally popular character to dress as for Halloween, particularly with the ladies searching for a feminine look and wishing to avoid the traditional blood and gore. The design of this deluxe wig ensures an adaptable look, perfect for ghosts and the ‘undead’. The classic ringlets and ultra white colouring combines to make a predictably popular choice for the upcoming season.

7. The Jessica Rabbit Wig

Jessica Rabbit Costume Wig

Probably our best selling wig this year, with scores of creative customers looking to replicate the style of the sexiest cartoon character in history. With it’s luscious layers and seductive side sweep, we predict the popularity of our authentic looking Jessica Rabbit wig to climax in October.

6. The Lady Gaga Black Super Wig

Lady Gaga Long Black WigWe will undoubtedly see a host of Lady Gaga inspired creations at Halloween parties and events this year. With an incredible selection of styles sported by the star, the choice is endless. For the more traditional costumes, a long black wig is often the finishing touch.

5. The Black Burlesque Wig

Black Pin Up WigWith a huge surge in demand for burlesque outfits for the Halloween celebrations this year, we predict the Black Burlesque Wig to literally dance off the shelves.

4. The Cruella Deville Wig

Cruella De Vil Costume WigDisney‘s most popular villain is a relatively easy look to replicate and hugely popular throughout the Halloween season. Think faux fur, monochrome print, long cigarette holders and the famous black and white two-tone wig. An instantly recognised style, perfect for customers wishing to embrace the ‘evil’ aspect of the festivities, mixed with the glamorous, bold and bright style of Cruella Deville.

3. The Edward Cullen Wig

Everyone’s favourite vampire, and supposedly the best looking being on the planet, the Twilight Saga’s Edward Cullen character is known for his changing eye colour and unique hair style. With the final instalment of the film series reaching our shores in November, we predict that the Twihards will be out in force this year, paying tribute to their heroes. Groups of Volturi inspired nasties and Edward & Bella couples will take over the nation this October, with contact lenses and quiffed wigs at the ready.

2. The Bellatrix Lestrange Wig
