styling human vs synthetic wigs.

Human hair wigs are generally more expensive than synthetic wigs due to the higher quality of the hair and how realistic they feel. Synthetic wigs are a more affordable option and are available in a wide range of styles and colors. Human hair wigs can last for several years, while synthetic wigs typically have a shorter lifespan. Human hair wigs require more maintenance and care, they need to be washed, conditioned, and styled regularly to keep them looking their best. In the meantime, synthetic wigs are generally easier to care for as they retain their style even after washing.

Here are some pro-tips on wig styling:

preparing the wig:

To style a wig effectively, you'll need to prepare it properly. Start by gently brushing or combing the wig to remove any tangles. Use a wide-toothed comb or a wig brush designed specifically for synthetic or human hair wigs. Be gentle to avoid damaging the wig fibers.

customizing the wig:

To achieve a more natural look, consider customizing the wig to fit your unique preferences. Trim the wig if necessary, ensuring it complements your face shape and desired hairstyle. You can even dye a human hair wig, this can be a great way to add variety and fulfill your needs.

heat styling:

Heat styling is an effective way to transform the texture and shape of your wig. Even though our wigs are heat resistant up to 320F/160C, we recommend setting your heat styling tool to a low or medium temperature to avoid overstressing the hair. Style small sections at a time, using curling irons, flat irons, or hot rollers to achieve curls, waves, or straight styles. Key note here: Don't forget to use heat protectant!

Creating updo styles with wigs can be a fun way to switch up your look. You can twist, braid, or wrap the hair to create elegant updos or casual styles. Experiment with different techniques to find what suits your taste and occasion. Take it to the next level by incorporating accessories like hairpins, hair clips, headbands, scarves, or bows to add a personal touch to your hairstyle.
