Rocking Gray Hair With Wigs

Thursday, 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 DeNovoHair.com

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!

Obtain Any of Scarlett Johansson’s Looks With Wigs!

Tuesday, 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!

Using Lace Wigs as a Protective Style

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Lace wigs are not just used for addressing hair loss but can also be used as a protective style for those who do have lots of hair or for those who are working on growing out or transitioning their hair. In addition, lots of women love to change their look without putting too much stress on their own hair. You can accomplish this by using lace wigs as a protective style.  By using lace wigs as a protective style, you can change the cut, color, length and texture of your look without doing damage to your own hair. Your own hair can be braided down, conditioned, and well taken care of, while you style your lace wig as needed. No need to worry about doing damage to your own hair.

Lace wigs also allow you to give your hair and scalp a much needed break from any heat/straightening treatments, like flat irons, for example.  Flat iron and blow dry your hair every day and you are more prone to limp, dry hair.  Love your curly hair but would like to wear it straight from time to time without risking heat damage? Why not try ordering one of our lace wigs as a protective style? Is your hair in need of some tender care without constant combing? Facilitate its growth by giving the constant grooming a rest!  Gone are the days where women’s wigs are used just for necessity. Today women also accessorize with hair and it is much easier to do so!

Rocking It With Bangs

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Jennifer Hudson seems to be back to the swing of things! Not that she was taking a big break or anything, but it seems like things are getting really busy for her. She’s a style icon and from the looks of it, a hair enthusiast, because her hair is always on point! She always has the most stylish dos and is always looking great. Jennifer is making the media rounds with her new sponsorship of Weight Watchers! She’s lost some weight and is looking great as usual. She’s rocking long stresses with a precision cut bang. Very cute! In some interviews, you’ll see the hair sleek and straight and in some others, the hair is curled into a soft body wave. This is a great style that fits almost any woman.

If this is a look you’ll like to try with your lace wig, you can always have your wig made with the hair ventilated toward the face (ventilation refers to the hand knotting of hair onto the base of the cap). This way, you don’t have to style and bump the hair in your face everyday. The hair will naturally fall toward your face at all times. In terms of ordering, there’s just a few things we need to know to get your bangs exactly the way you want them. You can learn here on how to measure your lace wig for bangs.

The below picture shows a lace front wig which was ventilated with bangs framing the face. A great advantage of having your bangs ventilated toward your face, is that the bangs will lay very flat. These are longer bangs, per the client’s request, but you can have yours cut to your desired length.

Got Alopecia Areata? Learn How to Get Financial Support for Your Lace Wig

Friday, March 5th, 2010

You might be surprised to know that there are little financial resources out there to help adults with the purchase of lace wig hair prosthesis, also known popularly as lace wigs. Though some insurance companies do cover lace wigs, there may be a lot of stipulations on coverage or under-coverage in general. There is a great resource, however, available through the National Alopecia Areata Foundation Ascot Fund. The Ascot Fund was established to help adults and children with alopecia areata by providing financial assistance up to $500. We’ve had the pleasure of working with the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) by providing lace wigs to their award recipients. Unlike many insurance company procedures, this is not a reimbursement plan so you do not have to come up with the funds upfront. We think this is just wonderful because this puts much less financial strain on the award recipients.

At the time of this writing, the program requires you to obtain an invoice from the company you choose for your custom hair piece. If you need help in customizing your lace wig hairpiece, please send an email and we will set up an appointment to go over your custom lace wig and provide you with the documentation you need to apply for the award. You can also fill out any one of our custom order forms to receive a quote or invoice. We can get started on your quote for the Foundation with this information. Keep in mind that we do include ongoing store promotions or discounts in your invoice.
Here are the steps to receive an invoice from us:

1)    Fill out a custom order form for your choice wig
2)    Add the order to your shopping cart
3)    The shopping cart will show your custom order details. Copy the entire order details
4)    Paste the order details into an email to us indicating your request for documentation for the NAAF’s Ascot Fund.

How a Precision Hair Cut Can Make All the Difference On Your Lace Wig.

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

We thought it would be great to share two pictures of the same lace wig before and after a precision hair cut. Well, we happen to think the style on picture #2 frames the mannequin’s face better by giving the style an updated and chic look. See how taking off just a few inches and styling really affect the final look? In the before picture, the hair is styled away from the face and the layers have little shape. With the precision cut, we add shape to the layers and style some of the hair toward the face.

You can have your lace wigs cut by a local stylist or order any one of our precision cut styles. If you don’t see a style you like, you can always order a custom lace wig with your own pictures. Keep in mind that we do need some good shots in order to duplicate the style. You can even send us an old wig to duplicate! Sometimes you just have that one wig that you can’t part with- you just love the density, the color, the cut, etc.  We can definitely make a duplicate for you to keep on hand.

When getting your lace wig cut, just remember to pick a professional that knows what they’re doing! Frankly, not every stylist knows how to cut hair well. Remember, the hair is not growing back so if it’s cut too short, for example, there’s no going back! Always err on the side of caution by ordering a slightly longer length to give the stylist room to work with.

Winterizing Your Hair, by Chaunteese

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Since having my new De Novo Hair full lace wig I have acquired a number of suggestions that will help clients keep their wig healthy and tangle free. Anyone who has spent even one single day in Chicago during the winter can contest to the brutality that Mother Nature unleashes on the body, skin and hair. That’s why here in Chi, we have to bundle up! However, the materials that our hats and coats are made from oftentimes are not friendly to our hair.  In fact, clients oftentimes, come in to the salon with breakage and evidence of unhealthy hair care.  What causes this breakage is friction, which is caused by movement between the materials of our garments which comes in contact with our hair.  This friction can also cause tangling with your hair addition, especially at the nape. However, there are ways to help reduce that friction: 1) Try to wear garments made from the material Satin or Silk.  So, before you put on your winter hat and coat, you should put on a silk or satin bonnet or scarf to protect your hair.  This will provide adequate protection, in most instances, against the drying effects of Mother Nature’s brutal winds and cold temperatures. In addition, this will reduce tangling as well as breakage. Stay warm and don’t worry so much about your hair!
