100% Hand Tied Prosthetic Wigs

 

We've designed our prosthetic wigs and augment systems specifically for those who have experienced hair loss, have a sensitive scalp, or who simply desire the most natural-looking and most comfortable wigs available today. Our wigs are 100 % Hand Tied which means each hair has been knotted in strand by strand, one hair at a time. The time it takes to make each wig is between 6-8 weeks. 

This advanced technique gives the appearance of hair growing right out of the scalp. Individual strands of  hair are hand-tied to an ultra-fine mesh Monofilamant base using non absorbent materials for a completely lite weight fit and comfortable wear. It also gives you the freedom to style your new wig in any direction- just like your own hair hair. Part your wig on the left, right or center.

Here's a glimpse on how each one of our wigs are made!

Machine Made Wigs

Machine made wigs as shown below (Fashion or wig store wigs) are not recommended, are wefted, heavy and will look wiggy. Many wigs are made with a mono top but the cap is machine made and wefted. These are not recommended. 

         (Not Recommended) Whenever you see strips or wefting as shown in photo, these are machine made wigs and usually found in wig stores.  Machine made wigs take about 20 minutes to sew together using a lot of material that  makes them thick, bulky and very un natural)

It is always suggested that you work with a licensed Salon & stylist for best results.

 


Human Hair Wigs VS. Synthetic

 

Consider hair type: Synthetic Hair vs. Human Hair

Many women think that human hair wigs will be more natural looking. They fear that "synthetic" wigs will in fact look synthetic. This is not true! Each type of wig has it's own unique benefits. Certain styles work best in synthetic hair and certain styles work best in human hair.

Synthetic Wigs are the most popular because they require the least amount of care. Today's synthetic wigs offer more styling choices, colors and unique comfort features. Shorter synthetic wigs are considered "shake-n-go," meaning that all you do is shake them out, finger style, and they look great. Longer styles simply need to be brushed through or finger styled. Synthetic wigs are easy to pack and take with you, and the fiber is resistant to humidity, so your style holds in any weather. One thing that's important to remember is that you never use heat on a synthetic wig! Any heat source, such as a blow dryer - even an open oven - can damage the fiber and ruin the wig. Human hair needs to be cut but synthetic hair should not.  Synthetic hair can be fine tuned in areas such as the fringe or bangs using texturizing sheers. Cutting synthetic hair will give it a choppy look. With synthetic hair you are simply picking out the haircut.


 

Human Hair Wigs

Human hair wigs are extremely versatile. You can curl and style them as you would you own hair. Because they do not come pre styled or pr cut, you would need to have your stylist give it your desired haircut. Human hair wigs work great in longer styles as well as one length styles such as bobbs, very easy to manage.
 

There are many different qualities of human hair, some manufacturers even use animal hair such as yak. We only use the highest grade of human hair which is called Remy Hair, sometimes called cuticle hair. It is hand cut and hand processed. Many times you will hear about country of origin. The idea that different hair textures come from different Ethnicities came decades ago and simply sounds good but it is false. As an example, someone may say, we offer European hair, or Brazilian hair. If you think of it this way, take 50 people who are European, or Brazilian, or Asian and put them into a room, who has the Asian, Brazilian or European hair? Every nationality has multiple different textures and this is simply a myth, a descriptive term only. The quality of the hair is determined by how it is collected and processed.
