~ Get Ready for Christmas with a New HairDo ~
Synthetic wigs do not behave like human hair wigs. They do not cut or wear the same as human hair.
Synthetic wigs are pre-styled & designed to be worn as they are, right out of the box with minimum shaping needed. They should not need much restyling other than shaping around the face, cutting bangs or thinning it out.
Personally, I advise my clients against trying to restyle a wig by cutting off the finished ends. In the long term the wig will thank you for it and so will the client.
I believe every shop do things differently. If it is an emergency situation and no other wig is available and we must make changes to the style, that would be a different matter.
However, it is important to inform the client that the restyling may not end up being perfect. A lot will depend on the original style and the desired final style.
It is not about making a sale but rather making the right sale and have a happy client.
Wearing a wig everyday will not prevent your natural strands from growing or stop your hair from thriving, nor will it create hair loss. However, it is important to not ignore your natural hair and keep it clean and conditioned under the wig.
The simple answer is No. However, you need to learn to properly clip on the hair piece without pulling on your hair. When you purchase a topper, the proper use will be reviewed in detail.
Toppers unlike extensions sit on the top of the head and it clips into the hair more like anchoring and not weighing on it like an extension would.
What Size Of Base You Need
It is important to ensure that the toppers are clipped outside the perimeter of the thinning area.
The size of the base will depend on how much coverage you need. There are various bases sized available for various stages of hairloss. If base is too small or too big, it may not be comfortable to wear.
I am worried about bulky hair ....
Depending on the level of your hairloss, adding additional hair with a topper may feel like suddenly having "too much" hair. At times it may take a few days to get accustomed to the new hair addition.

We offer a re-care service on synthetic wigs and hair pieces as long as they have not past their revive state.
Synthetic wig will experience fibre friction.
The extent will mostly depend on the length of the wig.
Fibre friction is a natural occurrence that will be caused by natural head movement allowing the fibres to rub together or against fabrics being worn therefore causing frizzy ends tangleing of the fibre.
Call us to get a free estimate. Prices will depend on the length of the hair.
Is Your Scalp Healthy?
Healthy Scalp leads to Healthy Hair!
The condition of your hair is a direct result of the condition of your scalp. You can’t have beautiful healthy hair without a healthy scalp. Hair products cater to the actual hair shaft, while the products we carry are based on the science of Trichology, they are specifically designed to care for the scalp. Even without the concerns of hair loss a healthy scalp is important.
