RemySoft shiny hair extensions1. Loose Curls

The loose curls hairstyle offers a professional appearance with a little bit of relaxation as well. Getting those curls to hang loosely may require some quality hair care products, so be sure you have everything you need to make it happen. This is the perfect style if you’re interviewing for an inside office job where you need to look professional every day.

2. Sleek and Long

Long and straight hair may not come off as professional, but it can be if you work it properly. Pull it back behind your shoulders and away from your face so it doesn’t become a distraction to you or your interviewers. If you have shorter hair and need just a little more length to pull this hairstyle off, you can opt for shiny hair extensions to make it happen!

3. Natural Waves

Naturally wavy hair shows a relaxed personality since the hairstyle isn’t too overdone. However, the relaxed nature of the hairstyle still is professional enough to look great in an interview. With the help of some quality hair care products, you can create some natural waves that will be sure to impress.

4. Curled Side Ponytail

The basic ponytail probably isn’t a good idea for a job interview hairstyle. However, curling your hair and finishing it off to the side gives it a professional, yet relaxed look. The important thing to remember is to keep it away from your face so it won’t be distracting during the interview. If your hair is too short to pull this style off, shiny hair extensions could be your solution.

People with medium-to-long hair, combined with some quality hair care products, can make a loose and wavy hairstyle look perfect for a job interview. If you want to give the hairstyle just a little more of a professional appearance, then consider curling the ends slightly.

Our Top Tips for Styling Your Wig

When it comes to wig ownership, wearing a wig versus actually styling it are two totally different animals. To wear a wig, all you have to do is fit on a wig cap, slip on your wig and you’re ready to go. Styling a wig is done prior to wearing the wig and involves quite the intricate process. If you’re learning how to care for a wig, having ample knowledge of styling techniques is an important part of the maintenance process. In this blog article, you’ll find our best tips for styling a wig so you can enjoy all the versatility it has to offer.

Wig Spray Works Wonders

As you get used to owning wigs, you’ll learn wig spray is one of the most valuable wig care products you could own. Wig spray can help your wig more easily retain the style you’ve set it into, lessening its chances of falling limp as the day wears on. There are two specific ways of using your wig spray, but neither is considered the best option. It all depends on what you’re more comfortable with. You can either:

  • Spray from a distance of six inches, combing through your wig’s follicles with your fingers and paying special attention to its roots, or
  • Spray a fine mist from a 12 inch distance all around your head, from back to front.

 

Regardless of how you apply your wig spray, you’ll want to make sure not to overuse it. Doing so will not only weigh down the hair, but it can cause it to need more washing than it should, which can harm its overall lifespan. For best results, we recommend applying wig spray only after applying wig conditioner and using it only as needed.

Do you know how to care for a wig?

Colorize

Sometimes your wig doesn’t need a whole new style to look good! In cases like this, you may be happier with your wig’s look simply by changing its color. Be warned you can’t dye a wig to the same extent you would your natural hair. Generally it’s best to go with a lighter or darker shade within the same color family your wig rests in. A good wig conditioner will help to protect your wig throughout the coloring process so be sure you’ve got a bottle on hand!

Add a Professional Touch

A subtle trim can also help spruce up a wig. Sometimes the hair installed in your wig can become a bit too much, after all, which is when there’s no better time to snip away at a few strands. However, it’s better to seek out a professional for this kind of work. They will know exactly how much to remove and can adjust the layering to keep your wig looking natural and attractive. A stylist can also help to customize the cut of the wig according to your specific tastes, especially if it’s brand new or just doesn’t look the way you want it to.

These aren’t the only tips for how to care for a wig, but they’re a great way to jazz things up if your old favorite has suddenly grown stale. Contact us to learn other ways to take the best care of your wig!

Scalp Tattoos: A New Solution to Men’s Hair Loss?

While many men have to deal with the hard reality of hair loss, the widespreadness of the issue doesn’t make coping much easier. As your bald spot grows in size, you may find your embarrassment swelling along with it. Some men don’t feel comfortable leaving the house without a hat or wig care products, while others decide to get proactive and shave their heads entirely to avoid having to face their baldness any longer. However, if neither appeals to you, you still have options.

Cosmetic professionals currently regard tattooing as another excellent and viable method for coping with hair loss. Yes, you read right! Tattooing isn’t just for anchor and skull tattoos anymore! For years, professionals have used tattoos to repair any number of cosmetic problems, with scalp tattooing being just one of other options for men with thinning hair. Keep reading to learn more about it.

How Does It Work?

RemySoft full cap partial cap hair replacementScalp tattooing is additionally called SMP, or “scalp micropigmentation.” Its process is similar to regular tattooing in theory, but be forewarned: you can’t get this kind of treatment at just any salon in the United States. Rather, you’ll need to go to a specialized center or book with a tattoo artist who knows how to do this work and has all the right tools equipped. Your specialist will have to gauge your hair texture, the way your hair loss is developing and your natural hairline before getting started with the procedure. This part of the process can be lengthy, so be prepared. Afterward, the specialist can get to work pricking small dots along your hairline and scalp, imitating what’s meant to look like natural stubble as the result of a close shave.

What About the Rest of My Hair?

If you still have some hair, no worries! Your specialist will be able to blend your new scalp tattoo into the rest of your natural hair, allowing you to more easily adjust if and when your hair loss spreads, as well as hide any obvious “tells” from your scalp.

Any Other Benefits?

Compared to other hair loss management methods, such as full cap partial cap hair replacement and hair replacement surgery, scalp tattooing is far more natural looking and less invasive. Scalp tattooing is meant to mimic a very common hairstyle among men—the close shave—so it’s ideal for men who already like and would have worn that particular style in the first place. Additionally, scalp tattooing is far easier on one’s budget, costing half as much as the typical fees for hair replacement.

Ultimately, however, the decision to undergo scalp tattooing is entirely up to you. If it isn’t your thing and you want to maintain longer hair, you may consider investing in a toupee and other wig care products instead. All that matters is you’re happy with your decision in the long run.

We at RemySoft are dedicated to quality hair care, no matter the type or length of hair you have! Be sure to get in touch to learn about other hair care options available to you!

Top Tips for Preserving Your Remy Wig

Top Tips for Preserving Your Remy Wig

RemySoft wig care productsYou’ve spent a long time mulling and shopping around for your wig, and now it’s finally here! With a new wig comes an undoubtable level of excitement as you enjoy how it makes you look and feel. However, in order to maintain your great new style, you’ll first need to know how to care for your wig. This article is written to teach you that exact task. There are a number of important steps to wig care you need to know to care properly for your wig.

Where Do I Keep My Wig?

While the temptation may be there, you can’t wear your wig 24/7. Therefore, you should have a place for it to go whenever it isn’t in use. Keep it away from light and heat and on a wig stand. You should invest in one as soon as possible. It’s great not just for your home, but for when you travel as well. A wig box is also vital to the latter circumstance because it ensures your wig’s safety.

How Do I Clean My Wig?

Washing a wig doesn’t work in quite the same way as it would with hair attached to your scalp. You have to use much gentler methods for a wig. The company that made your wig will supply you with a guide to cleaning it properly. There’s a specific process you should follow.

First, fill a bowl with lukewarm water. You can then use wig shampoo to get the wig clean. Focus on the ends and comb the suds through for maximum coverage. Then use the bowl of water you prepared before to rinse the shampoo out. Afterward, you can towel off the wig with gentle patting motions, comb it and return it to your wig stand. The drying process should take around two days to finish, after which you can wear your wig as normal.

How Do I Style My Wig?

Learn more about how to care for synthetic wigs!Styling your wig will be the first step in your new wig ownership and, much like the washing process, will take gentler methods. Again, you’ll need a full arsenal of wig care products on hand.

Remy wigs are far more susceptible to heat damage than your natural hair is because they aren’t being regularly nourished and replenished by minerals and other elements that keep our hair healthy. Try to avoid using heat as much as possible when styling your wig, especially when it comes to blow dryers! Blow dryers can melt the glue adhering the cap to the hair of your wig. This will cause it to fall apart. If you have to use any styling tools, put them on the least intense setting.

We hope this guide will be useful for caring for your new remy wig and enjoying it to the fullest! On our site, you’ll also find tips on how to care for synthetic wigs. For other advice and general inquiries, feel fee to contact us!

A Step-By-Step Guide to Picking Out the Best Wig for You!

No matter your reasons, the process of choosing a wig is undoubtedly a nervous event for many. There are so many styles and options the simple act of browsing can be overwhelming. You may wonder, “What type of wig works for me? What color should I get? What style suits my face shape best? What about quality?” We fully understand your concerns! That’s why, to help you know what to look for, we’ve put together this handy shopper’s guide just for you!

Pick a Style

Before you go into any other detail of your wig shopping journey, you should first find the perfectly styled wig. You can base this judgment off a number of factors, from your facial shape to the weight of the wig to your comfort level and most importantly, your own personal preferences. You ultimately want to choose a wig that makes you both look and feel great! There are all types of lengths and textures to choose from,so don’t be afraid to experiment!

Measure Your Cap Size

After you’ve picked out the perfect style of wig for you, you want to be sure it will fit on your head! Luckily, wigs come in a wide assortment of sizes and can even be altered to fit better. You will have to do some measuring to figure out your cap size. This step will involve measuring your head to get its circumference. Be sure to start with your hairline and wrap your measuring tool around your head until you wind up back where you’ve started. This is the best way to get an accurate measurement.

What Will Your Wig Be Made From?

Always use wig shampoo and conditioner.

Be sure you use wig shampoo and conditioner.

The material of your wig is just as important as its size and style. You want only the best looking wig, as well as the most convenient type for you. Wigs can be made from two materials: synthetic or real human hair. While synthetic hair is made to feel natural, they don’t beat out human hair in that regard. Synthetic wigs are best for those on a budget and who don’t want to spend a lot of time on styling. These wigs can be worn for up to six months.

Human hair wigs will automatically look realistic and are the best option for those who want to style their wig frequently. While it’s pricier, it’s well worth the amount! Human hair wigs will keep for at least a year. No matter which wig style you choose, be sure to look into the right wig care products. Now would be a good time to invest in wig shampoo and conditioner!

What Color Will You Choose?

Color may be the last part of our guide, but its important isn’t! Wigs come in an incredible variety of colors, from bright, unnatural hues to shades identical to your natural hair color. What color you choose is up to you and your preferences.

No matter which stage of the wig buying process you’re in, we at RemySoft are here to help you! We carry a vast array of products designed to keep your new wig, including full cap and/or partial cap hair replacement, beautiful for longer. To learn more, contact us!

Keep Your Comic Con Wig Looking Great All Weekend Long

Keep your Comic Con wig looking great with wig care products.

Wig care products will keep your Comic Con wig looking great.

Comic Con is coming, and it’s your time to shine. You have been planning for and looking forward to this event all year long. You’ve spent plenty of time crafting the perfect costume to pay homage to your favorite character. It goes without saying your wig is the centerpiece of your costume. Keep your look fresh throughout all of the event’s festivities by taking proper care of your wig in the hours it’s not sitting gloriously atop your head.

Read on to learn how to care for a wig so it maintains its beauty and serves you well throughout this year’s Comic Con fun, as well as for many years of festivities to come!

Synthetic Hair Isn’t All That Different from Real Hair

Before heading to Comic Con, learn how to care for a wig.

Learn how to care for a wig before Comic Con.

Your real hair becomes dull and dirty if you don’t care for it properly. The same is true of your synthetic hair too. Wigs are more delicate than human hair so they require a gentler cleaning approach. If you don’t care for them properly, portions of your faux locks could break off. Unfortunately, they won’t grow back like the hair on your head will.

Caring for Wigs Requires Special Products

The most important thing you need to know about how to care for a wig is this: never use the same hair brushes, combs, shampoos, conditioners and styling products you use on your real hair on your wigs. That is a sure way to ruin your wig – and your Comic Con costume!

When you are packing for Comic Con, make sure to include the special wig-care products and wig shampoo you will need. Without it, you will be stuck with a dingy wig. Also make sure you have a head mannequin. It is not an absolute must-have (as special wig care products are), but it will make your wig-care routine much easier.

The ABCs of Wig Care

Achieve the perfect look with wig shampoo.

Wig shampoo will preserve the perfect look.

Once you’ve settled in for the evening and have removed your wig, put it on your faux head and brush it gently from the bottom of the hair up to the top, working in inch-long sections. Place the brushed wig in a sink full of cold (never hot) water. Add a teaspoon of wig shampoo to the water and gently swirl the wig around for a couple of minutes. Never rub the wig. Rinse in cold water, remove all shampoo, gently dry it with a towel, then put it atop a hairspray can (not the mannequin head) to dry.

Place your wig on the mannequin head only after it is totally dry. Spritz on a wig conditioner, brush and style. Voila! You’ll be ready to meet your favorite characters with the confidence you look amazing!

Wigs or Hair Extensions: Which Is Best for You?

Are you considering wigs or hair extensions?

Hair extensions are a fabulous way to change your hairstyle.

When it comes to deciding between using wigs or hair extensions, it’s all about preferences and certain conditions. While some people would prefer to use hair extensions, factors like health conditions could prevent them from doing so, causing them to use wigs instead. There are, however, many people who have overcome serious medical illnesses, such as cancer, that elect to wear hair extensions while they’re waiting for their own hair to grow out.

Certain factors like having to go through chemotherapy can prevent you from being able to wear hair extensions because there’s not enough natural hair there to attach them to. Another factor could be the hair isn’t strong enough to support and adhere to the bonds used to attach hair extensions. If you don’t have any such obstacles and are openly trying to decide what would work best for you, it’s important to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each and decide based on your preferences. Here are the main points:

Wigs

Wigs are the obvious choice for those who are missing a lot of their own natural hair or for those whose hair isn’t long enough to attach to hair extensions. If you don’t want to spend too much time doing your hair every day, wigs are also a great option.  Instead of having to style your hair and hair extensions every day, wigs are much lower maintenance — as long as you make sure you maintain them with quality wig care products, such as hair products for remy hair.

Also, wigs are much warmer because they’re essentially worn as hats throughout the day. If you like to play with crazy colors and trends, wigs are a great way to do so without having to expose your natural hair to the harmful bleaches and chemicals involved in achieving those styles. Many people with green or purple hair could actually be wearing a wig without you realizing it.

Extensions

Women most often choose hair extensions over wigs because they feel more secure about having something attached to their own hair. Another major reason is because they want to look and feel as natural as possible, especially if their extensions are made completely of human remy hair. For those who aren’t fans of wearing hats, hair extensions will feel a lot more comfortable than a wig. As with wigs, hair extensions can help keep you from damaging your real hair with coloring jobs. Extensions offer more flexibility to style than wigs for those who like discovering different hairstyles frequently. As hair thins with age, hair extensions can also help increase the thickness of your hair and even cover smaller bald or thinning spots.

Either way you choose to go, it’s important to be true to your style, what you like the most and to use the proper hair extensions and wig care products, such as hair products for remy hair to keep your style fresh and smooth.

If you’d like to know more about maintenance products and options for wigs and hair extensions, contact us. Whether you choose a wig or hair extensions, our hair products for remy hair will keep you looking great.

Must Have Runway Wig Styles

Look amazing with the proper wig care.

Proper wig care will help your trendy wig look amazing.

Of all the major hair trends that graced the 2014 summer runway, there were a few that definitely stood out, and they weren’t beehives or pixie cuts. On the contrary, the outstanding trend was synthetic hair. Before you start picturing princess-like, flowing, feminine hairpieces, let us stop you right there. What we saw on the runway were extravagant, fearless and thrilling styles.

For the spring/summer 2014 shows, models strutted down the catwalk flaunting choppy layers and electrifying prints that were actually dyed onto the synthetic hair fibers. These wig styles show this year will be the time to make a statement like never before — branching out with wigs and the best wig care products.

The Bowl Cut

Surprised to hear bowl cuts and latest trends in the same sentence? If so, you might want to brace yourself. This season, the Marc Jacobs show featured ultra-straight, choppy plays on the bowl cut. These styles include chin-high sharp layers along the face and matching bangs. The creator of the wigs, British hair stylist Guido Palau, approached this project with the goal of bringing the bowl cut back to life in a chic, trendy way. According to Vogue, he wanted to give the wigs an “L.A. surfer” vibe while making it look like the models had cut the hair themselves. It looks like we can say mission accomplished on this one.

More on bowl cuts: The Fendi show also showcased bowl cut wigs. On this catwalk, the models wore identical wigs in order to look like clones of one another. A creation of hairstylist Sam McKnight, this collection of wigs was 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.

A Spin on Bobs

Sam Knight also created wigs that appeared on the Chanel runway. These beauties consisted of fully-fringed, shoulder-length bobs with an outward angle. The models walked down the runway wearing brown, black and extra-blond variations of this style wig. These wigs were apparently inspired by Darth Vader and 1970’s flipped-out do’s, with the ultimate goal of capturing the vibe of downtown New York.

Prints

This may be the first time we’ve seen zebra print on hair. For Rodarte’s summer 2014 catwalk, models wore wigs with black zebra patterns printed onto ice blond synthetic fibers. Created by French hairstylist Odile Gilbert, this hairstyle takes Rodarte’s repertoire of outrageous runway hair to another level.

If this has inspired you to try wig styles and trends yourself, be sure to do your research on how to care for a wig and what products to use on it, including the best wig shampoo and conditioner.

If you’d like to learn more about how to care for your wig with the best wig care products, contact us. Our hair products for remy hair will keep your extensions soft and tangle free so you can rock the latest trends.

5 Famous Wig Wearing Celebrities

Wig care products will keep your hair looking great.

Celebrities who wear wigs use the best wig care products.

People decide to wear wigs for a variety of reasons. Hair loss, which affects just about everyone at some point in their lives, is a common reason. Others may wear them due to their versatility and ability to provide a new look without spending hours at the salon. Using hair products for remy hair makes styling and maintaining your wig a lot easier and lower maintenance for many compared to their natural hair.

You may be surprised to learn many male and female celebrities also frequently wear wigs and hair pieces. Here are five famous folks who wear wigs.

Beyoncé

Though it may be difficult to tell, Beyoncé’s long locks are often the results of a wig and hair pieces. Beyoncé has naturally thick and curly hair but seems to prefer her tresses to be shiny and straight. She could straighten her natural hair, but the constant travel and dancing on stage would likely cause her hair to revert back to its curly state. Wigs are much easier to maintain and look great if you use the best wig care products.

Rihanna

You may have noticed how Rihanna frequently goes back and forth between her short natural hair and long hair using wigs. Shampooing and using wig conditioner helps keep her wigs looking shiny and beautiful. There is some speculation Rihanna may have a minor case of hair loss because her natural hair is thinner than it used to be. Rihanna’s front hairline may be damaged as well from regularly wearing extensions.

Gwen Stefani

Many people do not know Gwen Stefani sometimes wears a wig because her wig is similar to her natural hair. Gwen is known for her platinum bleached blonde hair, and it is plausible she wears a wig because she may not want to get her roots done for every event. Gwen has dyed her hair light blonde and other colors for many years, which can be damaging, but she does not seem to have any hair loss.

Robert Pattinson

Actor Robert Pattinson has admitted he wore a wig during reshoots of the final Twilight film due to having shaved his head earlier that year. It’s unknown if Robert’s hair is thinning or if he is experiencing the first signs of male pattern baldness. However, it is quite common for men in their early 20s to develop the first signs of baldness — a receding hair line, deteriorating hair texture and slight thinning on top.

John Travolta

The thick, full head of hair John Travolta had during his Welcome Back KotterSaturday Night Fever and Grease days is long gone. Over the past few years, he has been photographed with little hair on one day, and then with thicker hair just a short time later. In some close-up photos, you can clearly notice the edges of his wig. However, many people who may only take a passing look at magazines or online photos do not even realize he wears a wig
