If there was one major hair trend on the 2014 summer runway, it wasn’t beehives or pixie cuts. Rather, it was synthetic hair.  We’re not talking princess-y wigs and hairpieces, though. We’re talking outrageous, bold, and ultra-fun ones. For the spring/summer 2014 shows, models strutted the catwalk in choppy layers and unexpected prints (yes, prints!) that were dyed onto synthetic hair fibers. These hair trends prove it’s all about making a statement this summer, and that there’s no better season to do so.

Thought bowl cuts were uncool? If so, you might want to reconsider. This season, the Marc Jacobs show featured ultra-straight, choppy plays on the bowl cut. These above-the-chin shags consist of razor-sharp layers along the face and matching bangs. The creator of the wigs, British hair stylist Guido Palau, wanted to bring back the bowl cut in a chic way. According to Vogue, he wanted the wigs to have an “LA surfer” vibe while making it look like the models cut their hair themselves. At the looks of it, Palau accomplished his mission, no?

But bowl cuts don’t end there. The Fendi catwalk also featured bowl-cut wigs. For this show, each model wore identical wigs — and, as a result, they looked like each other’s clones. Created by hairstylist Sam McKnight, these wigs were inspired by a combination of Canadian model Linda Evangelista’s hairstyle in the ’80s, the Beatles’ famous bowl cuts, and Japanese hairstyles. The end goal with the wigs was to make them look exaggerated and synthetic-looking instead of natural.

Chanel

Sam Knight also created wigs for the Chanel runway, which consisted of shoulder-length bobs that were full-fringed and outwardly angled. Models strutted the catwalk in brown, black, and ultra-blond versions of this wig. When creating this style, Knight drew inspiration from Darth Vadar (we’re not kidding) and 1970s flipped-out hairdos. Ultimately, he wanted the wigs to capture the vibe of downtown New York.

Rodarte

We’re familiar with zebra prints on pajamas, underwear, and tee-shirts, but on hair? Ah, there’s a first for everything, isn’t there? For Rodarte’s summer 2014 catwalk, models wore hairpieces with black zebra patterns printed onto ice blond fibers. Created by French hairstylist Odile Gilbert, this hairpiece takes Rodarte’s repertoire of innovative runway hair to the next level. The hairpieces were clipped onto to the nape of each model’s neck to create a peekaboo effect beneath their side ponytails.

Be Spring-Ready: Raquel Welch’s 2014 Spring Collection

Posted in General on May 1st, 2014 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

Hey wig fans! Guess what?

Raquel Welch’s new 2014 spring collection is now on VogueWigs.com! From quirky short styles to diva-worthy long locks, this collection’s got it all. Don’t believe me? I propose you see for yourself…

Short for Spring and Summer

On the Move

On the Move by Raquel Welch

Pitch Perfect

Pitch Perfect by Raquel Welch

If you’re always on the go, I assume you know how awesome short hair is. Sure, you can’t put it into a ponytail or bun, but hey, what’s better than never having to deal with tangles? And of course, short hair works pretty well for spring and summer (I swear, long hair adds 10 extra degrees to the heat…)

Raquel’s two short styles, On the Move and Pitch Perfect, are two cute and quirky styles that work extremely well for the heat waves we’ll all be experiencing now until the end of summer. No need to fan yourself with the nearest newspaper or your new D.I.Y. paper fan. With these wigs, your head will be 10 lbs lighter and your neck will be free to experience the air and breeze.

Diva: the Female Version of a Hustler

The Crowd Pleaser

The Crowd Pleaser by Raquel Welch

Spotlight Elite

Spotlight Elite by Raquel Welch

If super short isn’t your thing, a wavy neck-length bob might be a good idea (ahem, the collection’s Crowd Pleaser). The best way to describe the Crowd Pleaser is that it’s a short, quirky hairstyle for larger-than-life divas like Beyonce. Divas like short hair too, just as long as they’re as attention-grabbing as the divas themselves. So if you’re feeling like a diva today, then the Crowd Pleaser may be a fit.

Let’s not lie: every girls dreams of being in the spotlight every once in a while. When wearing the Spotlight Elite, you might notice a few glances directed at that mane you got there. But it’s no surprise. Spotlight Elite just has that mysterious ability to draw people in. It could be its powerful volume (seriously, look at that lift!) or its precise layers. We may never really know, but one thing’s for sure: it’s a great hairstyle.

Oh, and here’s something noteworthy: Crowd Pleaser and Spotlight Elite are both made with heat-proof Tru2Life synthetic hair. So if you’re the type who loves to style your hair in different ways, you’ll have plenty of fun with these two styles.

Long (Human) Hair, Don’t Care

Grand Entrance

Grand Entrance by Raquel Welch

How to be a showstopper:

  1. Make a grand entrance.
  2. …By wearing Raquel Welch’s Grand Entrance.

It’s not every day you can get Gisele Bundchen’s sexy, flow-y hair (which eerily looks similar to the photo above). But with Grand Entrance, your hair dreams may have just come alive. Styled into large, layered waves, this wig is all about making an impression as grand as the opening of the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. And of course, it never fails at it.

What look from Raquel Welch’s Spring Collection will you be wearing this spring? Let us know in the comments below. Thanks for reading, ladies!

What Hairstyle Matches Your Face Shape?

Posted in General on August 19th, 2013 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

In the world of fashion, we know not any two people are the same, that’s why we’ve created this Face Shape Guide to get your started on your own personal look! You’ll be picking out the right and best style that fits your personal face shape. From this point on, all the wigs you pick should look phenomenal on you! Start getting your perfect hairstyle.

beyonce knowles

As its name implies, the Oval Shape Face is longer than wide, with a jaw that’s narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is so proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.

kirsten dunst

The Round Shape Face is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. The client may be overweight and the neck may appear short. These faces look very good with a geometric or linear style. Add height, when possible, and long, wispy side areas to make the cheeks look narrow. Comb hair close to the head on the side and at the nape.

jessica simpson

The Square Shape Face is characterized by a wide hairline and jaw. Square shaped faces need height on top and narrowness at the sides. Comb the hair off the forehead to add height to the face. Curly texture and wisps of hair around the face break the wide, straight lines common to the square face.

jordana brewster

The Diamond Shape Face is characterized by a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at the chin. Bobs work very well for this shape. Avoid wearing height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe or bang to cover narrow forehead.

reese witherspoon

The Heart Shape Face is characterized by a wide forehead and a narrower chin. Bring some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width. Keep hair close to the head at the eyes but make it slightly full around the jaw, and below and in front of the earlobes.

kelly osbourne

The Pear Shape Face is characterized by a small or narrow forehead and a rather large pouchy-appearing jawline. Comb hair to add width from the eye level through the crown of the head. Set and comb hair close to the head on the sides and at the nape.

sarah jessica parker

The Oblong (or Rectangular) Shape Face is characterized by a very long and narrow bone structure. The client who has an oblong facial shape often has a long, thin neck. Use a fringe or half-bang across the forehead by creating soft waves or curls in the crown and nape areas. This helps to create the illusion of an oval.

Guide to Washing Your Wig!

Posted in General on July 29th, 2013 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

Is your wig looking a little dull? To keep your wigs looking fresh and new, we recommend washing your wigs after a few wears or when you see it getting dull. Washing your wig will bring your wig back to looking new. Follow these simple steps to properly wash your wig.

1. Fill your sink or bowl with cool water. Add a capful of synthetic wig shampoo (for synthetic wigs) and blend in. Never use regular shampoo on synthetic wigs!

2. Gently swish the wig or piece in the water for about 30 seconds to a minute until the wig is saturated. Then lightly scrub the front of the wig cap, where it meets the forehead until clean. Next, let the wig soak for about 15 minutes. Then empty the sink or bowl of water and rinse the wig or piece in cool water, especially on curly wigs!

3. Gently squeeze excess water out of wig. Do not rub or twist your wig. Then place on a wig stand or spread the wig out on a thirsty towel and leave in a ventilated area to dry overnight. You should spray on a little leave-on wig conditioner, when you start the drying process. After the wig is dry, re-style the wig gently by shaking and fluffing by hand and using a wig pick and not a brush.

Cool Down this Summer with Cute Updo’s!

Posted in General on July 16th, 2013 by Nancy – Be the first to comment

With the sun and heat on full blast, we just want to throw our hairs up and call it a day. Take a little extra time to give your locks a little twist or pull! Instead of the boring and typical ponytail, you’ll be looking a hundred times more posh, yet you’ll be keeping yourself cool. Check out these 4 styles!

Stay Elegant

Diana Agron

Dianna Agron’s nearly undone knot is a look that flatters any face. Just place the bun slightly off-center and pull a few pieces in the front for a loose look. This look is carefree yet can be elegant at the same time.

Have Fun

Ashley Benson
Keep it high with a messy high bun at the roots and all teased up, Ashley Benson tells us that you can have fun with an updo! They don’t always have to be perfect.

Keep it Smooth

Kate Bosworth

Just like Kate Bosworth, get a sleek and low updo to wear out to a nice lunch or even a date night. To achieve this look, remember to keep it smooth, smooth, smooth!

Braid up

January Jones

Can’t get enough of braids? We love January Jones in this chic middle part side braid on both sides! Just braid the front, pull it back and tie together in a cute messy bun! You’ll look great and it only takes a few minutes.

Happy 4th of July! Celebrate with us!

Kate Beckinsale

Sassy Bump

Add a mini bump to your crown and it’ll automatically create a sculpted look that will look more formal than it really is. Add some soft corkscrew curls with a sleek side and this look will pull together fashionably. This style can work either during the day or even at night, it has both a fun and corky style as well as something elegant.

High & Sleek

Talk about sexy! We will always love the sleek high pony. Check out Julianna Margulies pony, she added blunt, all one-length ends into the mix which subtly adds and extra edgy feel to the look and really ties it all together for a sexy appeal.
