In this guest blog post by HairstylesDesign.com, the Hair Foundation has partnered with this website in an effort to bring information and opinions on both non-medical and non-scientific fashion and hair style information.
This post discusses the option of wearing wigs for either a special event or just to make a woman feel better about her hair.
For a typical woman, there is a natural desire to have an elegant hairstyle for a special event. The problem is that with the creation of these, it can often interfere with normal day-to-day life activities as it can involve a considerable amount of time spent at the salon. With today’s active lifestyle, it can leave little time to spend working on a hairstyle for a single event. A better option may be to go with a wig.
Contrary to popular belief, a wig does not need to be an outlandish and fake-looking accessory; it can be a stylish and elegant piece that takes the place of spending time at the salon. The following wig styles may be a perfect fit for a woman who wants to look great without sacrificing her time.
This Amore Updo Wig by Perfect Image is an excellent choice for either a formal event or elegant evening, such as a charity fundraiser or a dinner. Featuring side swept bangs and a simple bun, this wig presents a refined and classy appearance while not looking overly stiff or conservative.
With its $65 cost, the price is actually less than a salon visit for a similar-looking hairstyle. With almost 30 colors to choose from, a woman should be able to find a near match for her natural hair color. Furthermore, most people will not be able to tell that it is a wig instead of the woman’s hair. By attaching a series of T-pins, the lightweight wig will connect to hair securely without being in danger of falling off during the course of the evening.
Take a look at this second, more casual option.
A less formal social event may call for quite a different style. This option is the Relentless Wig from the Raquel Welch company.
The model has been styled by using the patented Sheer Indulgence system to create a part in either the center or on the side as desired by the woman. Made of a synthetic monofilament, this hairpiece comes in an array of colors and sizes to match the contours of any woman’s head.
With a price tag of over $200–a bit on the expensive side–this cost can easily be made up after a few wearings as compared to the expense of a salon. With good care, this high quality wig can last for several years. Through products from the company, it can also help the hairpiece look good over time.
While some women are still reluctant to buy a wig, the truth is that the modern technologies in wig production make the hair of a wig almost indistinguishable from the real thing. In addition, as more and more celebrities use wigs for special events, the social stigma of hairpieces has diminished. Choosing a wig because of either time or for convenience reasons, it is more understood now than in previous years.
If a woman has an important special event coming up and little time to get ready, a wig may be an attractive and cost-effective solution to the problem. Or if you’re having a bad hair day, one option to quickly cheer you up is a wig.
