Have You Heard of Precious Gems Hair?

January 18th, 2016

Shiny hair has always been appreciated as a sign of good health. Lately, hairstylists everywhere have taken it up a notch by daring their clientele to dye their hair in the colors of precious gems- also known as precious gems hair. Diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald, pearl and opal are all gemstones with mesmerizing colors that would look great on any woman’s hair. In order to express your personality and still shine bright like a diamond, you can choose toned shades that compliment your skin tone as well.

Become a jewel without bleach
You have probably heard of sunset hair and rainbow hair and you think that this new trend is similar. In fact, the difference between these and precious gems hair is very important. Those very bright colors usually require natural blonde hair or bleached hair in order to adhere. What’s great about precious gems hair is that they don’t. Any brunette can get her hair dyed in a, let’s say, deep green shiny hue that will stick on her natural hair. So, if you are very particular about your hair’s health, you don’t need to worry this new trend would ruin it.
In addition, the colors needed for precious gems hair are demi-permanent. You can use them to obtain a dramatic effect for a short period of time. Remember that demi-permanent colors stay visible longer on healthy hair that hasn’t been dyed than on bleached or previously dyed hair. If you aren’t that great when it comes to commitments, this look would definitely suit you because the color gradually fades away.

Be the queen above all queens
Each of us is the queen of her kingdom and the diamond among all gemstones. So, why not show it in a fun and non-permanent way other than by using actual diamonds to accessorize? Keeping up with every trend might become tiring, but not when you want to change your look and reinvent yourself constantly. In case you’re afraid of ruining your natural hair, you should know that many women resort to wigs. Wigs that are made of natural hair can be dyed in any color you desire. They might not survive too many changes, but at least you’re protecting your natural hair from getting damaged. A wig made of virgin hair can be worn for about one year before needing repairs, depending on frequency of use. It can offer you a type of versatility that is simply not available when it comes to your natural hair.

Choose color to shine
Hair that looks like a jewel or like a particular gemstone is a new trend that you will probably hear more about during this year. It is a bold choice, but not a risky one because the color needed to obtain it is not permanent. Giving your hair that lustrous shine may be a priority for some and it can be done with precious gems hair styles too. Remember to take your skin tone into consideration when you opt for a new wig color or a new color for your natural hair.

Must Have Hair Trends in 2016

January 15th, 2016

Hair trends change from season to season, not to mention from year to year. For hair trends in 2016, you should expect some interesting changes in terms of hair styling, as well as some reminiscences from 2015. Dip-dye and highlights are still on, but not on any type of haircut. Top hairstylists foresee more and more haircuts that are suited for each type of hair texture.

2015 trends surviving in 2016
If you embraced a big hair change in 2015, you may well still be very fashionable in 2016, so you don’t need to worry. When it comes to colors, top hairstylists agree that dip-dye and baby highlights will still be popular hair trends in 2016.  Some don’t believe rainbow hair or sunset hair will be as appreciated as they were during the previous year. However, you can’t fail as long as the color of your hair compliments your skin color.
When it comes to haircuts and styles, bobs and natural kinky curly styles are still in, and so is the long, layered hair. Luckily, bob haircuts have survived during the past years and they will be more than appreciated during 2016 too. What changes is the way we style bobs. Hairstylists will try to work with every woman’s natural hair texture rather than changing it by using too many products and by applying too much heat.

Bringing the ‘20s in 2016
In case you weren’t already used to comebacks, here’s one! The Gatsby-inspired bob is back and it is ready to compliment women who want to highlight their cheekbones. Short bangs are included in this hairstyle and that’s a good thing. You’ll see many haircuts with statement bangs among the many hair trends in 2016, so you can adopt a bold attitude with yours.  Short bobs might sound like a huge commitment for those of you who have long hair, so think about your alternatives, such as wigs. You can keep your long hair for yourself while sporting a wig that breathes style and fashion. Here at De Novo Hair you can order a customized wig that will improve your image in 2016 without having to change the one from 2015.

Accessorizing hair more than in 2015
Accessorizing hair is not a new notion, but thanks to various accessory producers and the fabulous hair tattoos, it will be soon embraced by more and more women. 2016 will be the year during which women will go out and about with golden and sparkly things on their heads. Bold hair colors aren’t enough anymore, so the need of hair accessories is predicted to be one of the hair trends in 2016.

In conclusion, 2016 will bring haircuts suited for every hair texture, plenty of accessories to make you look even prettier and colors that will nicely blend in. Remember that if you aren’t ready for a big change, you can always experiment with a wig made of natural hair. This kind of wig looks and feels natural, so it is simply perfect for anyone!

Protect Your Hair When Wearing Weaves

October 22nd, 2015

Sew-in extensions or weaves are considered a great way of protecting your natural hair while displaying a variety of looks. However, there are a few things you should know before getting your installment. Among the factors that may actually damage your natural hair are an exceeding number of extensions, improper maintenance and faulty aftercare. Before you conclude that weaves can do a lot of damage to your natural hair instead of protecting it, make sure you do your part during the installation and after to truly make weaves protective and worth the time and expense. Weave Care

Limit the number of extensions
Choosing the ideal amount of hair is the first step in opting for a protective sew-in technique. Too much hair can mean too much pressure on your scalp from the weight of the extra hair. The last thing you want to do is to make your weave uncomfortable and damage your natural hair and scalp because you have too many extensions installed. Also, think about how tightly the braids are done. Tight braids lead to headaches, excessive shedding and scalp damage. So, opt for looser braids and a sufficient amount of hair extensions.

Maintain your weaves properly
When your extensions are installed, you should leave your hair alone for a few days. Your hair should be washed and deeply conditioned prior to the weave installation, so washing and conditioning immediately after an install may loosen the install prematurely. In order to maintain your hair and scalp while wearing weaves, you can prepare a special mixture of essential oils and water to spritz on every now and then. Combining the mixture in a diffuser bottle will make application to the hair and scalp easier. Lots of different DIY moisture combo recipes can be found online and many brands are offering already made moisture boots as well.

Emphasize on the aftercare
Depending on your hair type, you can keep sew in weaves for 4 to 6 weeks before having to remove them. In case your hair is thin, you should schedule an appointment after 4 weeks. A medium to thick type of hair can usually sustain the weaves for 6 weeks or more, depending on hair growth rate. Even so, you shouldn’t keep them in for very long because you can’t avoid product buildup that’s going to settle between the braids. Washing your natural hair is the first thing you should do after extension removal. Next, you should use coconut oil and other deeply moisturizing hair masks to infuse as much moisture to your hair as possible. Try not to rush the process and leave the hair treatment in for a longer period of time. Your stylist will probably recommend a deep conditioner- don’t skip this step. Follow these 3 main tips for weave care and you’ll have more success with hair care and hair growth.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s Wigs – A Style Choice, Not A Necessity

October 5th, 2015

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is a mother, an actress and a singer. She is known for many things, including for her choice of wearing wigs. There was a big fuss around her big reveal, when she showed her real hair to the world for the first time. In order to prove that she actually had natural hair and she was only wearing wigs because she loves voluminous tresses, she revealed herself without a wig on. That moment was quite emotional for her although her natural hair looked great and had the same color and bangs as her wigs did. In fact, Kim doesn’t really need wigs, but she chooses to wear them to enhance the glamorous looks she has become accustomed to.

Kim is best known for her appearance as a cast member on the reality show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which catapulted her into unprecedented fame. Since then Kim has gone on to star in her own reality show showcasing her family and career life and has even been on Dancing With the Stars. Kim Zolciak-Biermann is an admirable woman who built her own way in television and who was never ashamed to admit that she wears wigs or that she has plastic surgeries. She is a very confident and open person. Kim thinks she looks more feminine and sexier with her full wigs on. Having a collection of more than 8 natural and amazing looking blonde wigs makes Kim’s life much easier.

Kim is well known for her wigs but she was not always honest about why she wears them. At one point, she declared that a sort of illness was affecting her real hair, so she was hiding it under full, glamorous blonde wigs. Over time, Kim stopped using medical reasons and simply said that wigs are part of her and that she prefers to have her wigs styled by her hairstylist while she spends time with her kids.

Perhaps, this is why she became a target of Wendy Williams accusing her of faking her mini stroke while training for Dancing With the Stars? Wendy Williams is well known for her wigs as well and these two big wig wearers came to odds over the whole ordeal. Was it fair for Wendy to attack Kim regarding her serious health issues? Kim certainly didn’t think so and had a few choice words for Wendy in response! Kim has since been forced to withdraw from the Dancing With the Stars competition and will return for the finale. Take good care, Kim, and keep on having fun with those wigs!

Rocking Gray Hair With Wigs

August 20th, 2015

The short, nicely styled, awesomely combed gray hair has worked its way on today’s red carpet looks. Even so, not all of us everyday people are ready to rock this kind of hairstyle inspired by Mother Nature. Perhaps, more bitter for women than it will ever be for men, graying hair is definitely unstoppable, but there are ways to flaunt it and even hide it, if you so choose. The most common solution would be to dye your grey hair, but isn’t that too much of a commitment to just one color and, also, damaging for our hair?

Sooner or later we are all going to have to deal with gray hair issues. According to various hair-stylists, there are an increasingly large number of young women who ask for advice regarding their grayed out hairs. The explanation for this natural change is quite simple. Our bodies produce a pigment called melanin, but the production of melanin doesn’t stay consistent throughout our lives. Therefore, at some point, our bodies will produce less resulting in grey hairs.

There are dozens of causes that determine whether hair will change color in people who are still young. Some of them are accepted by most scientists, while others are still in debate. Among all these, the best known are faulty diets, stress, blow-drying, hair dyes, anemia, anxiety or even heredity factors. Many well-known celebrities face this problem, such as Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lopez, Katie Holmes and even young Selena Gomez. The most obvious and embraced solution for gray hair is hair-dye, but is it really the best one? Dyeing our hair has a thinning, damaging effect on it, sometimes causing hair loss or producing allergies. In addition, gray hair is known to be quite stubborn when it comes to coloring, so dyeing requires stronger dyes that are filled with even more chemicals. Not to mention that sometimes there are some hairs that act rebellious by not absorbing the dye and that proudly stand out. As for the permanent commitment aspect, dyeing our hair is an even worse choice for those of us who like to change their hair color often.

Gray Hair Wigs At

A more user-friendly, very fun, non-permanent and with little risks approach is the wig! Perhaps, many of us still associate gray wigs with the kind of look of Marie Antoinette’s. This is, of course, a misconception, but linking wigs to something pompous or uncomfortable is still a held belief by some who are not familiar with the wig technology of today. Since we are all going to deal with gray hair someday and some of us are dealing with it right now, we should really consider all the beautiful styling options available with trendy wigs rather than damaging our hair further with dyes. Wearing different wigs is like dyeing and styling our hair differently every day, but without all the hassle!

When Wig Was Queen

August 13th, 2015

Is there any connection between the famous pop singer, Lady Gaga, and the great Queen Elizabeth I of England? Not an obvious one for sure, but there surely is one. Just like the pop singer doesn’t miss any chance to impress her fans and the music world by wearing fancy wigs matched with eccentric outfits, so did aristocratic women of times past. Their clothes were not as hair raising as Lady Gaga’s, but their wigs definitely were. Women from baroque and rococo periods took wigs to a whole new level by adding all kinds of accessories on them.

The reasons why women used to wear wigs centuries ago are not so different than the ones applicable these days. Yes, they wanted to look good, but they also needed wigs because of lice problems. Heat favors the multiplication of lice, so they used to shave their heads and cover them with beautiful, pompous wigs. For most these days, this particular concern no longer exists, but there are other reasons that generate baldness.

It goes without saying that only aristocratic women were able to afford a wig. The natural hair used to make wigs was often taken from slaves. In order to look more attractive, some women were only using what we know these days as wefts and closures. In Rome, both men and women started wearing wigs since the early days of the empire. The wig was considered a sign of distinction.

It is said that Empress Messalina would wear a blonde wig in order to disguise herself when she went to the brothel. Blonde wigs were, in fact, most sought by the Roman aristocratic women. Therefore, hair from European women was idealized. In addition, Faustina, wife of Marcus Aurelius, had an impressive collection of wigs- one for each attire. While these remarkable women only needed wigs to enhance their looks, Queen Elizabeth I was so well known for her red wigs that it was rumored that she had hair loss issues and needed to wear them. However, these bald tales seem to be unsubstantiated.

The eighteenth-century brought rococo wigs that were decorated in very unusual ways. Some of the ladies had high wigs with metal frames inside them that were able to sustain bird cages. They used to put one of these wigs on when they went out for a walk in the park or to visit someone. Jewelry, feathers and all kinds of other precious and flashy objects were glued onto wigs. However, things changed after the French Revolution, when wigs were associated with excess and decadence.

Wearing a wig is not associated with social prestige anymore. However, we basically have the same reasons for wearing a wig as did women who lived centuries ago. Either for medical reasons or just beautification purposes, wigs now are accessible and quite varied. Wearing them is now optional and they are a whole lot more comfortable. There is no longer a social pressure on women who wear wigs and those who choose not to. It is a personal option for both women suffering from various hair loss/medical conditions and women who just want to change their looks overnight.

Special Care for Your 100% Natural Lace Wigs

August 8th, 2015

natural lace wigs The reason why 100% natural lace wigs are the best choice is already clear, but the fact that they need special care might seem intimidating to some. Indeed, synthetic wigs don’t need styling and they are easy to wash just by putting them in cold water mixed with a special solution. However, natural lace wigs can be much more rewarding because of the efforts you make in maintaining its beauty and the versatility in styling.
If you own a natural lace wig, then you know that the hairstyles won’t last very long without proper care. Just like naturally growing hair, the hair used to make our lace wigs may become oily, dry or and go flat. This happens because although the hair is all natural, it was cut from the roots that were feeding it with nutrients in order to regenerate it and keep it moisturized. So, the need of washing your natural lace wig for an infusion of moisture is imperative. Whenever you feel that your wig is full of hairspray, wax or any other styling products that you might use, it will need to be cleaned.

Washing your all natural lace wigs

Before you wash your wig, you must comb the hair carefully. Using a wide tooth comb rather than a brush is pertinent for preventing unnecessary shedding. If you skip this step, you might have to deal with even larger portions of tangled hair afterwards, and therefore, an increase in shedding.
Next, you can fill the sink or a bowl that’s big enough with warm water. The reason why lace wigs need to be washed with warm water is because the pores of natural hair open in contact with heat sources and close in contact with cold water or cold air. Washing with the wrong temperature can cause the hair to be dry or tangle more. The hair products used can also impact the softness and manageability of your natural lace wigs. You can choose from a wide range of products that are especially meant to be used for wigs. When in a pinch and you have to wash your unit and don’t have any special wig shampoo, you can use a highly moisturizing regular shampoo.
The third step that you should take after cleaning your natural lace wig is to apply a conditioner. There are plenty revitalizing conditioners in our store and that are available in your local markets that can moisturize your wig well. Opt for non-static products if you notice that there’s a tendency of electrification when you comb the hair. Then, rinse the wig’s hair with warm water. You should expect some hair shedding with continued use and washing of your natural lace wigs, so we recommend that you do not overdo it with washing. You should wash the hair when necessary but daily washing is certainly not recommended.
It is important to towel or air dry your natural lace wigs. Hand squeeze any extra water and then place the wig in a towel to soak up any extra water. If you have a curly hair unit, it is recommended that you do not use a towel! This can cause extra frizz and dryness. For curly units, hand squeeze out the extra water, apply your favorite curl defining product and then let the wig air dry. Ideally, you should let your natural lace wigs air dry on a wig stand and style it after it is dry. Flat irons or curling irons are permitted with natural hair and you can also use heat protectants before you begin the styling process of your wig. De Novo Hair is also resourceful when it comes to styling products, as well as wig stands that make your work much easier.

Long Hair Preferred for 2015 Trends in Hairstyle

July 12th, 2015

Things are pretty clear when it comes to this year’s trends in hairstyles. Long hair is preferred by all major fashion houses. Boho curls, pony tails and ballerina buns are very popular this season. As for colors, the stars of 2015 are light blonde, shades of honey and champagne. This might not be such good news for those of you who do not have long hair or blonde hair, but fortunately you can always opt for a lace wig if you wanted to jump into the trends. De Novo Hair is resourceful in this regard, offering long and really long lace wigs available in precision cuts, straight & uncut and in curly & wavy styles.  All of our styles are also available in bulk packs and wefts which are used for weaves. Since our lace wigs are made of human hair and look incredibly natural, there’s no reason for you not to have long hair this year if you desire!

Styling options for long hair in 2015

This year’s fashion shows were amazing not just because of the beautiful models or the clothes they were wearing, but also thanks to the hairstyling aspect. The ponytail is reminiscent from last season and it looks definitely messier than last year. Oscar de la Renta had a few models that walked the spring shows sporting ponytails caught at the base of their necks. However, the ponytails were diversified, adding individuality to every model. In addition, Aquilano Rimondi opted for Boho curls, which are characterized by subtleness, being barely perceptive. This hairstyle is related to Bohemian concepts that promote freedom. Interestingly, Ralph Lauren chose models with long and straight hair, as well as Tommy Hilfiger. This look is not at all easy to obtain with shorter locks, but wigs and weaves can transform your look quickly! As for the ballerina buns, they are elegant and look sophisticated. Aigner promoted these types of buns earlier this spring. The secret is not to add the well-known wet look to these buns, but to capture a soft and feminine look.

Coloring options for long hair in 2015

When it comes to trendy hair colors in 2015, the key element is light. The chosen colors are pure and of a graphic simplicity that seems to absorb light. The recommended shades are arranged in layers, so they are gradually revealed. If platinum blonde was last winter’s color, hairstylists now rely on softer shades, such as golden blonde or caramel blonde. This might be another problem in case you want to obtain a very fashionable look in terms of hairstyle and color. Not many of us have natural blonde hair, so going from black, dark brown, or red to blonde may be a challenge. On the bright side, you have the alternative of purchasing a lace wig or weave extensions that meets all the above criteria. When blonde is no longer a star color, you can even dye the wig’s hair in any shade you please! Wearing a wig is no longer unconventional especially since so many celebrities wear one daily.

Obtain Any of Scarlett Johansson’s Looks With Wigs!

June 30th, 2015

Scarlett Johansson always amazes not only because she changes her hair color drastically every now and then, but also because she goes from having long, curvy hair to short, pixie hairdos. She had red hair mainly because of her roles in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. In 2009, she confessed that she had changed her hair color because of the character she wanted to play, the Black Widow, had dark red hair. She is the type of person who changes her looks to play a role, but who also has a well-defined personal style. Since 2010, Scarlett began to shorten her hair little by little and changed her hair color 3 times. These days, she is sporting a really short blonde hairdo. Her sides are shaved and the top is bleached. It looks like a waterfall seen from behind.

With her current do, it would be quite difficult for her to go back to the curvy, shoulder-length hairstyle that she had for a while thanks to her role in The Avengers. However, there is always the option of wearing a wig! Although she changed her own hair for her movie parts, the results that can be achieved from wearing a wig could be as amazing as her actual hair. The 100% natural wigs from De Novo Hair can be dyed and styled with a curling iron without causing them damage. Scarlett did put some effort into maintaining her locks and keeping them looking healthy. In contrast, wearing a wig is time-saving and often easier to style than natural hair.

Any woman can change her looks as often as Scarlett did without putting too much stress on their natural hair. The solution is simple, comfortable and affordable. This renowned actress with edgy face features and outstanding talent chose to change her hairstyle from long and wavy, to shaved on the sides. If you like her style and you want to try it on for a while, you can choose hand tied human hair wigs. In fact, you could order a customized wig that fits perfectly on your head and is arranged just like you desire. With virgin hair wigs, you can change its color as often as you want to because it is replaceable, not like your own hair, which would take some time to grow back out.
Since Scarlett chose to chop off her blonde locks and wear her hair short, she also changed her style into a more casual one that can be spiced up for special events. When she attended the Oscars earlier this year, she had on a lovely green dress and her flawless hair matched her formal style. Yet, she is also spotted in skinny jeans or sweatpants together with her child with the same haircut. If you are a fan of Scarlett Johansson, you can achieve any of the looks she had during time by choosing to wear wigs. Her style went through some changes, but luckily you can pick one that represents you and not damage even one string of your natural hair. These alternatives are always the best options in case of style change!
