Fall is finally here and the weather is changing. Itâ€™s important to know how to take care of your wig in the different types of weather. When the weather is windy the hair on the wig blows and can ruin a fresh set or even cause the hair to tangle, but donâ€™t worry- itâ€™s simple to take care of.
Next, you may have concerns that your wig will fly off your head with a gust of wind. If your wig is well fitted and secured properly the odds of that occurring are small.
Wearing a scarf or a hood are simple fixes for both these concerns. If you donâ€™t often wear coats with a hood a scarf can be folded up and take little space in your pocket or your purse.
A baseball cap with the hair tied back is also an option that will provide security and keep the hair protected from tangles. You donâ€™t need to wear the baseball cap, simply tying the hair back will offer the hair protection. You can use a looser hair tie if you are concerned about the ponytail holder leaving marks or indents on the wig.
Â Does the Wig Fit Well?
Be sure the wig fits you well, before you address the type of clips, combs or adhesives you might use to keep the wig secure. At Freeda we do customized fittings or we can add adjustable elastics to tighten or loosen the wig. This is especially helpful if you prefer a looser fit but want more security when outside in the wind.
Securing Your Wig
Weâ€™ve talked at length about the different methods for securing your wig. Clips and combs may be best for those with hair underneath the wig, those without might use wig glue or tape. We are big fans of the Freeda Band that provide security without any clips, combs, glue or tape.
There is a solution for all weather related concerns you may have. We welcome your questions and feedback and look forward to hearing from you.
A half pony or bun is also a good option on less windy days. Our satisfied customer is wearing an Atara wig in this photo.
Recently a customer came in to buy a wig. Alopecia had caused her hair to thin to a point where she wasnâ€™t comfortable anymore.Â As she was leaving I mentioned that she should find out if her insurance might contribute toward the cost of the wig. She called me today, ecstatic, to let me know that her insurance pays for 80% of the cost of the wig!
If you ask your insurance company if they cover the cost of wigs the answer will likely be no.Â However, if you asked about cranial prostheses the answer can be positive. A wig is considered cranial prostheses.
How itâ€™s done?
Youâ€™ll need a prescription with the diagnoses code from your doctor.Â After youâ€™ve chosen your wig you receive a receipt for a cranial prosthesis to submit with your insurance claim. Itâ€™s as simple as that. You may be surprised at how much of the cost is covered.
If you’ve purchased a wig from Freeda and believe your insurance will cover it, you can email email@example.com and request a cranial prosthesis receipt.
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 â€“ 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 beÂ hugeÂ 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 â€ścurtain fringeâ€ť. Â This Brigitte Bardot style is a classic; Pintrest even reports that searches for â€ścurtain fringeâ€ť 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 â€“ if you donâ€™t have time to style them they can easily be pinned out of the way. Movement and texture, easy to style, and natural looking; whatâ€™s not to love?
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. Itâ€™s truly a must have wig for all. See our top-rated Maya wigs in our showroom or at freeda.com.
