Spring Trends 2018 – A Bang We Love!

Spring Trends 2018 – A Bang We Love!








Bangs are always popular when wearing wigs. At Freeda wigs, we are excited for the latest bang trends that are becoming the next big thing. As the weather turns warmer the trend is bands that are choppier and shorter – somewhat undone and bold.




Top stylists in L.A. and New York City who cater to A-listers agree; everyone is getting bangs and mid-length hair is more popular than ever. Accessories are a new trend as well, see our blog reveal of our favorite accessories for your hair.




So, bangs are going to be huge next year, and the best thing about it is how much variation of these bangs we are seeing. The one single noteworthy bang is called the “curtain fringe”.  This Brigitte Bardot style is a classic; Pintrest even reports that searches for “curtain fringe” have surge 600%! That clearly indicates the popularity of this style. This long, tapered, soft side-swept bang look works for every texture and length hair.




Piecey and full of texture these will be easy to style, and super versatile. Try them swept to the side or brush them down the middle. These bangs have lots of movement as well, which will make the wig look even more natural.




What we also love is how low- maintenance this fringe is – if you don’t have time to style them they can easily be pinned out of the way. Movement and texture, easy to style, and natural looking; what’s not to love?

Fun Fashion Week Trends

Fun Fashion Week Trends






For us at Freeda Wigs, fashion week is all about the hair. With alacrity we await to see the hair trends and creativity designers use while showcasing their latest fashions.  This year models walked the runway with pin straight hair with severe middle parts, reminiscent of the 90s.




What set this look apart were the diamond crystals that were placed in a straight line directly on the part. You wouldn’t imagine look for everyday, but all over social media the darting are recreating this fun new trend. It certainly would be perfect for certain occasions like birthday parties and such. Would you try this look? Our Riva Long would be perfect for this quirky style. I guess there really is no such thing as too many diamonds!











All about our Maya Wig


All about our Maya Wig





The popularity for big full wigs with volume has risen as of late. The Maya wig is an excellent choice for those who want hair that is voluminous with body and texture.




Why do we love the Maya so much? The Maya is a shoulder length classic wig style. The Maya was crafted to compliment all face shapes with its soft layers that frame the face. Some of the top reviews about the Maya are how long the set lasts and the beauty of the fullness of the wig.




The Maya is so versatile and can be worn in limitless styles. The Maya is customizable and can be styled straight and sleek, straight and full, in a feathered style and curly. Its natural texture air-dries in a wavy beachy texture. The Maya, like all Freeda wigs, boasts the highest quality 100% virgin European hair. The cap is breathable and lightweight making it an excellent choice for those wearing the wigs for medical reasons.




The Maya comes in a range of colors from blonde to black, including styles with highlights and lowlights. The hair can be dyed as well to further customize your personal style. Its crown is multi-directional allowing you to




style it with bangs or an off the face style without bangs. It’s truly a must have wig for all. See our top-rated Maya wigs in our showroom or at freeda.com.






Making your set last

Making your set last





We used social media to ask others which challenges they faced when wearing a wig. Making the set last was a theme we saw consistently while sifting through the responses.



Because we recommend getting as few wash and sets as possible, keeping the set in good shape is important.



First thing to consider is the type of shampoo and conditioner used when washing the wig. Are you looking for your wig to hold body? Are you looking for a sleeker look? Shampoo and conditioner will contribute to the style you are trying to create. Look for shampoo and conditioner with the words silky, sleek, body or volume to create the look you are trying for.




Next, are you using the correct tools to style your wig? Are the blow-dryers, curling irons and straightners the correct instruments for the style you are trying to achieve, are they the correct temperature? For example, using a barrel that is the wrong size is often the reason that a wavy set won’t hold well. Sometimes just changing the barrel just a ¼ of an inch will be the solution. Is the entire wig being set properly, or are you concentrating on the top and sides? Give attention to the entire wig, including the bottom and back, for the longest hold.



Experiment with the products you use. Often you’ll find the perfect product that your wig responds to, it can be different than the sprays and serums you use on your hair. Ask your stylists for suggestions and recommendations.





Dry Shampoo is a favorite product here; it’s a solution for so many wig quandaries that come up. It is made for stretching the time between washings. Cold rollers are also a great solution to keep the set looking nice. We recommend holding off when you think you need a washing, so many customers tell us they get the most compliments when they think their wig is desperate for a washing.




What are your tricks on keeping your wig styled? Send us your tips; we love to hear from you.

Baby hair blog

What is baby hair?



Baby hair is the hair that lines the edge of the hairline. It can be added from temple to temple, ear to ear, or a portion of the hairline.

Baby hair can be put in endless ways.

Some the most common reasons we add baby hair are:



1)  To soften a hairline- this is typically softer wavy short hair that adds a natural look to the edge of the hair.

2)  To cover a widow’s peak- this can be done with a curlier hair, it masks the area where the hairline might protrude.

3)  To give the wig lift- we add a courser hair that helps the hair stand away from the face



There are many other sorts of baby hair; anything you can imagine can likely be added to your hairline. Baby hair can be short or long, curly, wavy or straight. Some people send us their own hair to add to their wigs. Adding your own hair to the hairline is especially comforting for cancer wigs. Baby hair is a customization, so your wig won’t have the hair added until you request it.



Baby hair will help the wig look more natural look like it’s coming from the scalp. When you order a wig and you’d like baby hair added, call us or email us for assistance on customizing your wig.

Freeda Wigs and Guinness Book of World Records


Freeda Wigs and Guinness Book of World Records




Wigs that break world records? It’s an interesting topic.



We get lots of requests for thick full wigs, but there was a wig so thick that was so jaw dropping, we almost didn’t believe it. The wig was more than seven ft wide! Seven feet!  That’s wider than some cars, and taller than most basket ball players! This record happened here in New York, by a wig worn by an actor, who broke the record in 2017 on the Today Show.



We don’t carry wigs that thick here at Freeda Wigs, but we do custom order wigs, if that is a style that might interest you. While our wigs take about 8 weeks to order, you may need to allow some extra time for a request this big.





This wig measured 5 ft 3 in high and took four people to put the wig on her head.  Just look at it! Can you imagine how long it would take to brush and style a wig like that?




The record for the tallest wig made of hair was made in Italy. It was 46 ft 11” (!) and was erected in the main square of the city. Can you imagine washing that wig?  That’s taller than a four story building! The record for most people wearing wigs is 31,304 people! This record was broken at a baseball game in California.




I’m certain Freeda would win the record of “wig with the longest lifespan”. We have customers who are happily wearing their Freeda wigs that are 30 years old or older! What world record could Freeda break next? Send your ideas in; we love to hear from you.
