#WisdomWednesday: How Do You Determine Your Wig Size?

In order for your wig to fit securely and comfortably, you need to be sure you’ve bought the right wig size. Paula Young carries beautiful wigs in a variety of sizes–mini petite, petite, average, and large–so you can be sure to find a style that looks great and fits perfectly.

To determine you wig size, you need to measure your head. Before you measure, though, be sure to flatten your hair. Also use a cloth tape measure or a string to ensure accuracy.

Follow these easy steps to determine your head size and, in turn, your wig size:

WW_PY_02.01.17_05aStep 1. Measure Around Head: Starting at your natural hairline in front, follow your hairline to just above your ear. Measure around the back to the bend in your neck, just above your other ear, then around front to where you began. Record this measurement.

Step 2. Measure Front to Back: Measure from your natural hairline in front and over the crown to where your head meets the top of your neck. Record this measurement.

Step 3. Measure Ear to Ear: Starting in front of one ear where your hairline ends, bring your tape measure or string up and over the crown to the front of your other ear. Record this measurement.

Step 4. Check the Sizing Chart: If all three of your measurements do not match exactly to one size in the chart below, choose the size that corresponds to your largest measurement. The Velcro® tabs inside each wig adjust up to 1″ larger or smaller for a secure and comfortable fit.

CaptureOnce you’ve determined your wig size, go ahead and shop Paula Young by size. We’ve got gorgeous wigs available in mini petite, petite, average, and large!

#WisdomWednesday: What Is a Wiglet?

A wiglet is a special type of hair piece specifically designed for women who are experiencing thinning hair. Unlike wigs that cover the whole head, wiglets—which come in a variety of sizes and fiber options—can be placed strategically in order to target specific areas of thinning hair and give you coverage exactly where you need it: on the top, crown, front, or back.

WW_PY_01.25.17_04

Problem-solving wiglets attach securely with combs and are made with open-wefted integration caps, which allow you to blend your own hair with the wiglet’s fibers for a unified and seamless look. Simply position the wiglet wherever you need the most coverage or volume, attach it, use a blending pick to draw small sections of your own hair through the open wefts, and blend.

Paula Young offers 15 wiglet options—five sizes and three fibers (easy-care Kanekalon® synthetic fiber, super-light WhisperLite® fiber, and 100% real human hair)—so that you can find the wiglet that’s perfect for you:

Wiglets give you confidence and the appearance of healthy-looking hair by adding instant volume, coverage, and fullness.

#WisdomWednesday: Why Choose a Lace Front Wig?

If you want to achieve a natural look, one with a virtually “no-show hairline,” you should consider a lace front wig.

Lace front wigs have fibers—synthetic or human hair—that are individually hand-tied to a nearly invisible poly-silk mesh lace section at the front, creating a seamless, completely natural-looking hairline that virtually disappears against your skin.

Unlike the defined, “hard-start” hairlines of traditional wigs, lace front wigs have realistic, low-density hairlines that mimic the look of natural hair growing from your own scalp and allow for off-the-face stylablity, further enhancing the natural look and versatility of lace front wigs.

Paula Young has a wide selection of stylish lace front wigs—including lace front human hair wigs—you’ll love and that your friends won’t even know you’re wearing.

And, of course, Paula Young has the lowest online prices for lace front wigs…150% guaranteed!

#WisdomWednesday: What Is Remy Human Hair?

pizap.com14829327232541Remy hair is considered the finest quality of human hair because the hair cuticle—the protective, outermost part of the hair shaft—is kept intact during processing and is kept unidirectional so that all the fibers are aligned root to tip, just as they were while growing naturally.

Though Remy human hair wigs and Remy human hair extensions are expensive, they have a completely natural-looking appearance with the added benefit of reduced tangling commonly found in non-Remy human hair wigs and extensions. In addition to having Remy human hair fibers, these wigs also often feature premium constructions like lace fronts and monofilament caps.

If you’re looking for a high-quality, thoroughly natural-looking Remy human hair product, Paula Young offers a select collection of high-end Remy human hair wigs and Remy human hair extensions from luxe brands like Ellen Wille, Hairdo, and Estetica Designs…all at guaranteed lowest online prices.

#WisdomWednesday: How Do You Care for a Human Hair Wig?

Proper care will extend the life of your human hair wig, keeping it looking fab and feeling fresh. How often you wash your human hair wig depends on how often you wear it. The general rule of thumb is every 8–12 wearings, or about once a month. For best results, we recommend that you bring any 100% human hair wig to your hairstylist for an initial styling. Follow these easy steps for washing, conditioning, drying, styling, and maintaining your human hair wig:

1. Wash

  • Using a wide-tooth comb, gently remove tangles and turn your human hair wig inside out.
  • Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a capful of shampoo. Agitate the water with your hand to dissolve the shampoo and generate suds.
  • Submerge your wig in the sudsy water and soak it long enough for all the fibers to be saturated.
  • Find the front edge of the wig cap and–securely but gently–lift the wig out of the water and then resubmerge. Repeat this process several times, being careful not to scrub or wring the hair.
  • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, being sure not to tangle the hair.

2. Condition

  • Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a capful of conditioner. Agitate the water with your hand to dissolve the conditioner.
  • Submerge your wig in the water and soak it long enough for all the fibers to be saturated.
  • Find the front edge of the wig cap and–securely but gently–lift the wig out of the water and then resubmerge. Repeat this process several times, being careful not to scrub or wring the hair.
  • Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, being sure not to tangle the hair.

3. Dry

  • Turn the washed wig right-side out and move to a clean, dry towel and gently blot a few times. Do not rub, wring, or twist your wig.
  • Place the clean human hair wig on a wig stand made of wire or plastic. Avoid using a Styrofoam® styling head when the wig is still damp, as the cap may stretch.
  • Spritz the clean wig with leave-in wig conditioner.
  • Leave the wig to air-dry at room temperature overnight.

4. Style

  • Once your wig has air-dried thoroughly, use a wide-tooth comb to remove any tangles. Gently work from the ends of the hair up toward, but not all the way to, the roots. Be sure not to tug it too hard.
  • Use heat styling tools such as blow driers, flat irons, and curling irons on the lowest setting to help achieve your desired look. You may also use wig spray or wig gel to complete and hold the style.

5. Maintain

  • Always keep your own hair clean to reduce wig-washing frequency.
  • Always use specially formulated wig care products to extend the life of your human hair wig and to make the most of your investment.
  • Never use hot water when you clean or condition your human hair wig.
  • Never comb or brush your human hair wig all the way to the roots, as you may inadvertently loosen the fibers or damage the wig cap.
  • Never place a tangled human hair wig directly into water. Doing so will make the tangles worse.
  • Never rub shampoo or conditioner directly into the fibers or the cap of your human hair wig. Doing so will damage the fibers and saturate the cap with hard-to-remove residue.
  • Never rub, wring, or twist your human hair wig.
  • Always store your human hair wig out of direct sunlight and on a Styrofoam® styling head when not in use.
  • Always keep an extra wig on hand so that you have a fresh wig to wear during cleaning intervals.
