Looking For Wigs

Without question selecting the correct wig or hair replacement system can be critical. Not only for your visual appearance but also for your confidence. If you are suffering from natural hair loss or simply wish to experience a new look we hope this article will be of interest to you.

There are so many wigs available on the internet that selecting one can be almost impossible. To make matters even more challenging there are less and less actual “Bricks and mortar” shops around for you to visit and try them on. However, it is not all dome and glum, there are a couple of simple guidelines that can make the exercise a little simpler:

1. Select a well trusted and established brand
2. Know your face shape
3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of your supplier.

2 and 3 above are reasonably self-explanatory. However, who are well and trusted brands when it comes to wigs? For the purpose of this article we are going to concentrate on two USA based manufacturers Henry Margu Wigs and Jon Renau Wigs and express why we consider them to be of note:

Henry Margu Wigs
Henry Margu Wigs is a family owned business and is the oldest, most experienced wig manufacturer in the US with a long history of providing exceptional service and quality. They are one of our preferred brands as their wigs are easy to care for and are resistant to various environmental conditions like heat, humidity and more, which causes the cheaper brand wigs to go frizzy and the fibres become tangled. So if you want to maintain a signature style, the soft silky hair pieces are great since they bounce back to their original style if cared for properly. These are not just great looking hair pieces, the modern synthetics also deliver on the areas of manageability as well as realism with superior colour as well as curl maintenance. The technique which gives the synthetic hair such natural softness and bounce was exclusively developed by Henry Margu himself. Some examples and types of wigs available from this extensive range are:
