It’s that time of year again! Time for fall fashion, hot cocoa, and times of togetherness with friends and family. But what about our hair? Many people don’t realize how frequent weather changes can affect our tresses. Depending on geographically where you’re reading this from, you may or may not experience cold weather during the fall and winter months. Regardless, it is common to want to change your hair for certain holidays and special occasions. My professional recommendation for anyone wanting to switch up their look frequently while also caring for their natural hair is to give custom wigs a try.
Custom wigs provide a versatile protective style that is long lasting, while also allowing you to sleep comfortably at night. Infact, one of the most beneficial reasons for wearing custom wigs is that you are able to take them on and off allowing for the hair to not get tangled in a bonnet or showercap, and your real hair underneath is easily accessible. When a client comes into my salon for a consultation and explains to me that they are too busy for styles that require a lot of maintenance, nine times out of ten, I am going to recommend that they invest in a custom wig. Once the style is chosen, precise measurements are taken of the client’s head shape and size to ensure a perfect fit. Then, once I have the selected hair, I can create a custom look that’s going to compliment the client’s beauty and life-style. The first install is included in the price of the wig, so you will receive all how-to care tips at that time as well. Another benefit of custom wigs is that you don’t have to be the same “Plain Jane” every single day.
Hair is a form of self-expression that can be expressed in tons of different ways. Any color you’ve ever wanted to try and any cut you’re too afraid to do to your own hair is now a possibility without the commitment of permanence. Manytimes, permanent hair color – if not done properly and professionally – can damage our strands. Trying that color with extensions is a simple solution. What if you have always wanted to try a bob haircut, cut your beautiful long hair, and then ended up hating it? However, if you were to get a customized wig with that style, you could easily just alter the style or simply remove the wig. Want to experiment with fantasy colors, but your workplace only allows natural hair tones?
Wear your fun wig on the weekends and be whoever you want to be until Monday morning. The possibilities are literally endless! No matter what your style, custom wigs are one of the best ways to maintain a flawless look while also caring for your natural hair underneath on a daily basis. It’s certainly a great investment, especially if you’re someone who likes to keep their hair looking fresh from day to day but has a hectic schedule. For maintenance professional recommendation is to have the wig serviced once a month for a good cleanse, as well as a deep conditioning for your natural hair. This way both the wig and your natural hair have the best possible amount of TLC. Keep your hair protected during the colder months, and it will be sure to reflect health, shine, and retention of length. Who doesn’t want that?
