Wigs 101

Choosing the right Hair Fiber:

Synthetic Fiber

High quality synthetic wigs are lightweight and incredibly natural. Synthetic wigs are pre-styled and low maintenance, and available in almost limitless colors. Easy care and lower costs make synthetic an ideal choice for busy women who want a “fresh from the salon” look.

Heat Friendly Synthetic

A special synthetic fiber engineered to withstand temperature up to 350°. Fibers can be curled or flat ironed using the proper technique. Heat Friendly wigs offer more styling flexibility than traditional synthetics, but have a shorter lifespan and require more maintenance.
Human Hair –Real human hair has a silky texture and natural sheen and bounce. Human hair can be curled, straightened and styled like your own natural hair. There are different grades of human hair, the higher the grade, the better the quality, and the higher the price.

Remy Hair

The term “Remy” is often misused and misunderstood. Remy hair is simply hair that has been collected and processed in such a way to keep the cuticle running in the same direction to avoid tangling. This requires much more time and effort and thus costs more. Non-remy hair has been processed to have the cuticle removed.

European Hair

Hair collected from women of Caucasian descent, which has a finer, softer texture than Asian hair. Because there is a limited supply, it is more expensive.
