Hello Beauties!

I have a question...have you ever been watching a movie or television show and it seems like the whole cast was wearing cheap wigs? Unfortunately, I have also witnessed people in real life wearing the same type of wigs.

Now you may be wondering or asking yourself, what constitutes a "bad" or "cheap" wig. Well I'm glad you asked, let me tell you!

You see, a wig can be affordable and not look like a mop or a rug, cheap doesn't describe the cost. Case and point, there are also expensive wigs out there that look and perform like the "cheap" ones.

Cheap or bad describes the quality of the wig based on how well it looks, performs and fits.

Will it tangle, matte or shed easily are all things to beware of when wig shopping. You see, wig manufacturers know how to package and market wigs well enough for the consumer to buy and then it becomes a nightmare! So don't be fooled by some of your well-known brands, they also make wigs that are not up to the test. (I won't name names here).

When you make the decision to buy a wig, consider these 5 things:

1) How does the wig look? Will the style enhance your appearance? It's best to have an idea of the type of style you're searching for before going online or ins-store shopping for a wig. It can be overwhelming with the number of choices out there.

2) How does the wig fit and feel? The disadvantage to shopping online is that you don't get to touch the hair to see how soft and manageable it feels. You could rely on those YouTube reviews but it's always best to try it our for yourself. Take a trip to a local beauty store and take a look at the wigs to get an idea of what you want, touch it or maybe even try one on.

3) Determine how much you want to spend before shopping. Listen ladies, we are emotional beings when it comes to our hair! We will sacrifice the bag to have our hair looking nice and saving us time from styling and maintenance. I get it, but don't go broke trying to buy something you're not even sure you like. Wigs are an investment no matter how expensive or inexpensive but be sure you are investing in something worthwhile.

4) Try it on! If you can try on a wig before buying it! I always tell my potential clients to try a similar style of wig on first just to be sure you like the way it looks on you. Ladies, we are quick to see something on one person and think that we can pull it off! Well, sometimes that doesn't work out and then we lose faith and give up on the whole idea. So try it on first!

5) Last but not least, please understand that you will need to customize your wig once you buy it. So many people have said, "it didn't look the same on me" Well yeah, you have to work with it and make it fit your style once you take it out of that bag. Wigs that have been packed away in a box or a bag need time to relax so that you can see the style. You may to add product or maybe even trim a new wig but don't be discouraged because it doesn't look the way you want it to right away!

As with anything ladies, do your research before you buy! If you know you only want to spend $20 for a wig please understand that sometimes you do get exactly what you pay for. Planning and education is the key to making the best purchase decision.

Hi Beauties!

I hope you're doing well today. We're in the midst of the holiday season and approaching the winter season and you know what that means right? That means there will be lots of dry skin, dry and thirsty hair, and many days where the weather will be unpredictable. Hang in there, it won't last forever!

As a #beauty #professional I am always looking for ways to help my clients. Finding shortcuts or tips to help make haircare and maintenance at home easier, magnificent hair products and styling ideas. Seeking new and innovative ideas to help women deal with their everyday hair styling challenges are a passion for me.

If you're anything like me then you probably like to change your hair from time to time. Adding hair color, length and volume are all ways to keep a youthful appearance and a way to keep your style fresh and new. If you're a fan of short hair styles then you know there is a great deal of work associated with maintenance and upkeep. As someone who has worn short hair for most of my life, I know there's much work that goes into maintaining the style. Relaxer touch-ups, shape ups, trims and much more. More frequent visits to the barbershop or hair salon are required to maintain a clean cut short style.

So what's all the fuss about hair toppers? Well, I'll tell you! If you ask the women who swear by them, they're the best thing since sliced bread. These hair toppers are out here saving time, money, careers and people's love life all at the same time! If you've never heard of a hair topper then let me fill you in on the buzz.

Hair toppers are a great way to preserve your short style and to help it last between salon visits. It will cut down on heat damage and it's a great option as a protective style. A hair topper is a unit that is worn and covers the crown area of the head. These pieces are especially helpful for women who may be experiencing hair thinning in this area. The unit is installed by clipping it onto the hair or braid section around the perimeter of the crown with wig clips. The wig clip will hold the topper in place and the hair can then be blended in to match the natural hair. Your short trendy hairstyle will love you for it!

Some benefits of wearing hair toppers are:

1). They cut down on styling time. Hair toppers can be pre-styled to prevent endless hours preparing hair by curling and molding.

2). Fosters hair growth by allowing hair and scalp to breathe.

3). 100% removable allowing care and maintenance of scalp and hair.

4). Saves time and money. Stretch out the time between salon visits.

5). Prevents heat damage by eliminating daily use of heated styling tools.

6). Change your hair style, length and color as frequently as you like.

7). Helps cover thinning hair

As you can see, there are many benefits to incorporating hair toppers in your style regimen. I've even had other hair stylist reach out to compliment me on the quality of the toppers and and tell me how it has helped their clients who ordered one. It's a great alternative compared to wearing full wigs and is a great option for those experiencing hair loss and in need of solutions.
