You will have more depth in styling options with this trending and revolutionary hair extension piece also known as a wig! No need to worry about your edges showing or tracks being exposed! That’s right wigs are the new trending hairpiece for so many reasons. I know when I said wig most of you dolls clutched your pearls. Well, wigs have upgraded tremendously since the 80’s. No more overly thick hairlines or the over shiny look. Wigs have revolutionized from the wiggy look to being unnoticeable.
 Now that we have addressed  the elephant in the room the next question people always ask is “ Will my wig fall off?” Not only did the wigs upgrade in appearance but also in the security department. No more bobby pinning the wig to your hair, they now come with wig combs and a custom elastic band that fits your head comfortably. So for all my dolls that work out, play sports or simply want to just let your hair blow in the wind you can do just that all while feeling confident that your wig will stay flawless. How do you know if you are the perfect candidate for a wig?
If you are dealing with hair loss of any kind whether it’s from Alopecia, medication or hereditary this can be beneficial for you. In all cases, you can look at a wig as a non-surgical solution. Wigs are also beneficial for those who are going through the natural stages but don’t want to show the process. Did I mention it’s the ultimate protective style? And while wigs are a blessing, it’s also important to note that you still have to take care of the mane beneath that wig. If you’re struggling with hair loss from Alopecia, you should use the PureFix Hair Elixir which is a 6-in-1 hair and scalp treatment that contains all of the natural oils listed above. Its all-natural ingredients work together to support longer, stronger hair and to promote hair growth.

This was such an awesome experience ? Have you booked your experience yet?

If you are unsure about the whole wig process the best thing to do is set up a wig consultation with a wig specialist. My advice to all those that are new to the wig world when in doubt wig it out.
