Our Newest Curly Wig- The Danya Long

Our Newest Curly Wig- The Danya Long

 

 

At Freeda’s we recently added a few styles to our Collection to satisfy the needs of our clients. One of our new styles is the Danya Long. Here is some background on the Danya. The Danya has been part of the Freeda Collection for over 12 years. It is one of the original curly wigs that Freeda manufactured. Freeda called the wig Danya, the name of a close friend of hers, who has been wearing the style since it first came out.

The “Danya” air dries in a wavy to curly texture, one of the only wigs on the market that is a “wash and wear” style. It’s easy to maintain on your own. Our customers love it, many of whom wore straight wigs because a texture like this was hard to find.  They were so happy to look like themselves again.

The Danya is a shoulder length wig. Before we added the Mimi to our stock, the Danya was the only curly wig in our collection. The Mimi, an 18” long wig then joined the collection. We had a shoulder length curly wig and a long curly wig, but we didn’t have a mid-length wig with that curly texture. The Danya Long, now part of the team, fills the gap between a short and long curly wig, at 15” long.

The multi-directional crown allows the hair to be parted in all directions. This wash and wear style can be easily maintained on your own.  It is quite simple; when the hair is wet use a wide tooth comb to get rid of any knots. Simply use your favorite product for curly hair, and scrunch the hair with your fingers. That is all the Danya Long needs.

 

 

 

If you’d like to wear the wig in a straighter style the Danya Long is also perfect for that. The hair blow dries nicely so the wig can be worn straight, with body, wavy and curly. It can be styled, blow dried,  or washed and worn air dried. It’s a very versatile wig.  The texture lends itself well to a set that will hold strongly and for a long time. Because the wig has light layering people find they need only a bang or some face framing in order to wear the wig. It’s also a great wig for any mid-length hair style. See the Danya Long in our Brooklyn showroom.

The Lob: Still Holding Strong

The Lob: Still Holding Strong

blog1

 

I

f you read this blog you’ll know that the long bob aka the “lob” is something I go crazy for. I just love this style. The lob is not short nor is it long, and it looks good on 5 year olds and 60 year olds. It works with oval shaped faces and round shaped faces, it’s just the most adaptable and flexible style. It is seen on those in classic attire and coveted by those who are trend pioneers

 

 

The lob is still hanging tight with no plans on going anywhere. Slightly updated to match the changing coveted trends, the lob is modernized and upgraded in this seasons summer tresses. Sharp blunt ends are featured on the updated version of the lob. While tousled and natural was the look for the last while, we are now seeing sleek hair void of the perfect disheveled that I so loved.

 

The style is slightly longer in the front and grazes the shoulder in the back to give the cut more depth and movement.  To add even more dimension the outer layer is blunt while the inside of the hair is slightly layered to give smooth movement to the hair. I also love it because it’s long enough to pull back during hot summer days.  With a wig you never have to commit to just one length, I’m a supporter of changing your wigs style and experimenting with long tresses, short, highlighted, mono-colored. We invite all to our showroom to meet our friendly Freeda team where you can try on lobs or other styles you’d like to try.  See our Riva Short or our Liberty wig, both perfect styles to create the lob.

All You Need To Know About Parting Your Wig

Training your part

 

 

You wouldn’t believe what a world of a difference your wig experience will be after you learn how to “train” the part.

It’s so simple and will change so much in your wig experience.

Here’s why we do it. The wigs come from our factory with an intended hair direction and part. Once the wig is yours the part will change to suit you and perhaps the direction of the way you wear the wig. A multi directional crown can be parted in every direction but sometimes it takes some effort for the wig to “cooperate”. Until then, people often find they are fighting with a direction that seems to have a mind of its own.  These steps will help fix that problem. (We also have other solutions if you need more assistance.)

Here’s how it’s done:

Training the part starts with a wig that has been washed before it has dried. First the wig should be wash, part changed as desired, and then blow-dried.

Next, pin the wig on a foam or canvas wig head

Using T-pins pin the bangs away from the face a lot higher than you’d like them to fall.

Make an exaggerated pin curl, and pin into place

Repeat each time you place your wig on a foam head.

After a short time your bangs will fall into place perfectly in an off the face direction.

Traveling With Your Wig

Traveling With Your Wig

 

 

The holidays are here. Holiday time means lots of traveling to visit friends and family. Flying with a wig has always taken a bit of working out with all the bag limits and restrictions, but we finally figured it out.

 

If you wear a wig on the plane, people are concerned about the clips setting off the alarm while walking through it.  The standard comb and two clips won’t set off the security alarm.     Many like to be comfortable while traveling. We had a client who wore a hat fall under a beanie so she would be more comfortable. TSA asked her to remove her hat. She did holding her hand over her head as she walked through the detector. She was mortified.  TSA is accommodating for situations like these.  You are not required to remove your wig for them in public.

 

Next, let’s talk about transporting the wig. You should not put your wig in your checked luggage. We have heard awful disasters of lost luggage, even missing wigs from luggage that has arrived. That loss is a big one; it means more than a financial loss. It can be devastating not to have the “hair” you were depending on once you get to your trip, and nothing can replace a wig that you love.

 

Travel boxes for wigs are available at wig shops; they are vertical rectangular cases with a base for a wig head. It would have to be taken on the plane as a carry on item which can be problematic. Make sure to double check the airline’s policies. If you are wearing the wig for medical reasons the wig box should not be considered extra luggage as it is related to your health.  A doctor’s note or the prescription is all you’ll need.  Remember to take it with you on the plane and don’t leave it behind. A good tip we suggest is to tie a personal item to the handle so you are sure not to forget it.

 

 

Next, we have lots of positive feedback about using a method of wrapping the wig which we demonstrated here. The good thing about wrapping the wig is that you’re able to put it on your carry-on and won’t need to travel with any additional luggage.

 

Once you arrive at your destination you will want to take your wig out of the wrapping and shake it out a bit. Store your wig in a safe place (never on a lamp!).

Fall Hair 2017

Fall Hair 2017

 

 

It’s hard to believe that summer is over. Labor Day is long gone and fall has officially begun. Kids are back to school and the days start getting shorter. Hello all things fall! Ahead are beautiful colors of changing leaves, cooler weather and transition from summer mode to fall mode.

 

 

 

As we transition from summer to fall the hair styles start changing too. Here are some of the styles that get more popular this time of year.
With styles that are waist length all the way to little pixie cuts, this fall, hair is all about comfort, playfulness and being natural. Here’s the lowdown; the short, long and all in between.

 

 

The short:

Perfect for those who like a straight textured short cut the classic pixie is back with an updated twist. The ends are kept soft and the layers on top are slightly longer. This style would be perfectly created with our Linda.

 

 

 

The mid length:
A shoulder length cut, the midi bob is popular this fall. This bob has textured ends and grazes the shoulder, it is blow-dried straight. Use our Riva Short to get this classic look that works with every range.
The midi bob with wavy texture will be relatively one length this fall with a few long layers in the back.

 

 

 

The long:
The long this season isn’t just long, it’s super long. Trendsetters have been seen sporting tresses so long that are hip length or longer. The layers are minimal with lots of bounce and movement. Freeda doesn’t carry wigs that are that long, but we do custom make them. The wig pictured was just ordered! That is way too long for many, for those who like long but no we have our Atara and Pearl wig.

Is there a style you like but are too scared to try? That’s half the fun of wigs! No commitment! You can always change your wig to match your mood.
