Why Choose Wigs?

Embrace Change and Confidence with Our Versatile Wig Solutions

Why choose wigs? The reasons are as diverse as our clientele at Head Lines Hair Designs. Wigs offer an unrivaled opportunity to embrace change, boost self-confidence, and provide solutions to various hair-related concerns.

One of the primary reasons many people turn to wigs is to address hair loss. Hair loss can be due to multiple factors, including medical conditions, treatments such as chemotherapy, or simply the natural aging process. Regardless of the cause, hair loss can significantly impact one's self-esteem. Our high-quality wigs offer a seamless and natural-looking solution, allowing individuals to regain their confidence.

Wigs also provide an exciting avenue to explore new looks and styles without making a long-term commitment. Want to switch from a bob cut to long waves overnight? Or experiment with a bold new color? With our wide array of fashion wigs, the possibilities are endless. Plus, you can avoid potential damage to your natural hair from frequent styling or color treatments.

Moreover, for those with a busy schedule or individuals who value convenience, wigs can be a time-saving option. High-quality wigs require minimal styling and offer a consistently good hair day. They can be especially handy on those mornings when you are in a rush but still want to look your best.

At Head Lines Hair Designs, we understand that choosing a wig is a personal journey. We're here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring that your wig not only suits your needs but also makes you feel fantastic.

Understanding Hair Loss

Your First Step to Flawless Extensions

Hair loss is a condition that affects many individuals at some point in their lives. It's a multifaceted issue with various causes and degrees of severity, but no matter the cause, it's a deeply personal experience that can significantly impact one's self-esteem and confidence.

There are numerous potential causes of hair loss. Androgenetic alopecia, more commonly known as male or female pattern baldness, is a widespread cause. This condition is genetic and causes hair miniaturization where the hair becomes finer and shorter over time until it eventually stops growing. This process is gradual and often starts with a receding hairline or thinning at the crown.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks hair follicles, causing patches of hair to fall out. This condition can progress to total hair loss on the scalp (alopecia totalis) or the entire body (alopecia universalis). It can occur at any age, but often begins in childhood. The unpredictable nature of this condition can make it particularly challenging to cope with.

Medical treatments, particularly chemotherapy and radiation therapy, often cause hair loss. These treatments target rapidly dividing cells, which include cancer cells but also hair follicles. The hair loss is usually temporary, but it can be a distressing side effect for individuals already dealing with a serious health condition.

Hormonal imbalances, particularly those associated with thyroid disorders or changes in estrogen levels, can also cause hair loss. Stress, certain medications, and even hairstyles that pull tightly on the hair (traction alopecia) can also contribute to hair loss.

At Head Lines Hair Designs, we understand that hair loss can be a complex and emotional experience. Our wig solutions are here to help restore not just your hair, but also your confidence and sense of self. We provide a compassionate and supportive environment where you can explore our wide range of high-quality wig options, ensuring you feel comfortable and cared for every step of the way. Let's explore further to help you find the right solution for you.

Unveiling Your Best Look

Exploring Diverse Wig Types

At Head Lines Hair Designs, we offer an extensive range of wig types to cater to our diverse clientele's varying needs and preferences.

Here's a breakdown of the different types of wigs you can choose from.

Synthetic Wigs

Synthetic wigs are an exceptional option for those seeking convenience and affordability. They're crafted from man-made fibers designed to emulate the look and feel of natural hair. The fibers used in synthetic wigs retain their shape well, meaning they require minimal styling; you can simply shake them out, and they're ready to wear! Another major advantage is their longevity; with proper care, a synthetic wig can last for six to twelve months of regular use. When choosing synthetic, consider your lifestyle, budget, and styling preferences. While synthetic wigs may not offer the same styling versatility as human hair wigs, innovations in wig technology have led to heat-friendly synthetic wigs that can be lightly styled.

Human Hair Wigs

Human hair wigs are renowned for their realism and versatility. These wigs are made from 100% human hair, so they feel, move, and look just like your natural hair would. One of the significant benefits of human hair wigs is the ability to style them any way you'd like; they can be cut, colored, and heat-styled to match your preference. They're also more breathable than synthetic wigs, which is ideal for those with sensitive scalps or those wearing wigs for extended periods. While they come with a higher price tag, with proper care, these wigs can last over a year, providing a natural and comfortable hair solution.

Custom Wigs

For a truly individualized experience, consider our custom wigs at Head Lines Hair Designs. These wigs are tailored to your specific needs, from the cap size and hair density to the color and cut. They offer a highly realistic look and are perfect for those with specific styling needs or those who have found standard wig options unsatisfactory. The production process for custom wigs is meticulous, ensuring a high-quality end product that fits perfectly and matches your desired look.

For those looking to experiment with their style without the commitment, our fashion wigs are the perfect solution. Available in a vast range of colors, styles, and cuts, these wigs allow you to transform your look instantly. They're perfect for special events, photoshoots, or even day-to-day wear if you love changing up your style regularly. While fashion wigs can be both human hair and synthetic, consider your intended use and how often you'll be wearing your wig when choosing the right fashion wig for you.

How to Choose the Right Wig for Your Face Shape

Discover Your Perfect Match

Choosing a wig is about more than just finding a style or color that appeals to you - it's about finding a style that enhances your natural features and complements your face shape. This careful consideration can make all the difference, helping to ensure your wig feels like a natural extension of yourself.

Firstly, let's talk about oval face shapes. If you have an oval face shape - typically characterized by a longer length with a softly rounded jawline - you're in luck. This shape is considered versatile and balanced, meaning almost any hairstyle, length, or texture will suit you well. Whether you prefer long waves, a sleek bob, or a pixie cut, feel free to explore various styles.

For those with a round face shape, which is typically as wide as it is long, with full cheeks and a rounded chin, certain styles can help elongate your face. Consider longer, straight or wavy styles, or those with height at the crown. Layers that fall past the chin can also help to create the illusion of a longer face.

If you have a square face shape, characterized by a broad forehead and square jawline, certain styles can help to soften your features. Consider wigs with waves or roundness around the face, or those that add height at the crown. Avoid styles with too much volume at the sides as this can make your face look wider.

For those with a heart face shape, which is wider at the forehead and tapers to a narrower, often pointed chin, balance is key. Consider styles that add volume at the bottom to balance the width at the top of your face, or those with side parts and swept-forward layers around the upper face.

Finally, for a diamond face shape, characterized by a narrow forehead and chin with wider cheeks, consider styles that add width at the forehead and chin, such as chin-length bobs or styles with fringe or bangs.

It's important to remember that these are just guidelines - personal preference and comfort are key. At Head Lines Hair Designs, we're here to help you navigate these decisions and find a wig that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Let's explore further to help you find the right solution for you.

Maintaining the Luster

Essential Wig Styling and Care Tips

In the world of wigs, proper styling and care play pivotal roles in ensuring that your wig stays in its best condition and maintains its natural look. Whether you've chosen a synthetic or human hair wig, the approach to wig care is somewhat different from that of natural hair, and understanding these nuances is critical to keeping your wig looking vibrant and healthy.


When it comes to styling your wig, remember to use wig-friendly products. Standard hair care products may contain chemicals that could degrade the quality of the wig. For synthetic wigs, using heated styling tools should generally be avoided unless it is specifically labelled as 'heat friendly.' Human hair wigs, on the other hand, can be styled using heat, but it's crucial to use heat protectant products to prevent possible damage.

Additionally, combing or brushing your wig requires a gentle hand. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots to avoid causing tension that could lead to breakage. Using a wide-toothed comb or brushes designed for wigs can help prevent any pulling or snagging.

Washing your wig is an essential part of wig care, but unlike natural hair, wigs do not require daily washing. The frequency depends on how often the wig is worn but, on average, after wearing it about 10-12 times, it should be washed. Always remember to use wig-safe shampoos and conditioners to cleanse and condition the wig.

Storage is another important aspect of wig care. When not in use, wigs should be stored on a wig stand away from direct sunlight, heat, and dust. This helps to maintain the wig's shape, style, and overall integrity.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure your wig continues to look as stunning as the day you first wore it. Remember, the key to maintaining the look and feel of your wig is through consistent, gentle care and using the right products. With these tips in mind, your wig will remain a beautiful and integral part of your style for a long time.

Breaking the Stereotype

Empowering Yourself with Wigs

In the realm of personal styling and beauty, wigs have undergone an incredible transformation. No longer viewed as a mere cover-up for hair loss, today's wigs are cherished as bold fashion statements, means of self-expression, and essential tools for personal transformation. Yet, despite their rising popularity, certain misconceptions about wigs persist, often making people hesitant to embrace them. At Head Lines Hair Designs, we believe it's time to shatter those misconceptions and spotlight the empowering aspects of wearing wigs.

One common concern involves the look and feel of wigs. Some people worry that a wig may appear unnatural or uncomfortable. However, with advancements in wig technology and design, modern wigs offer an incredibly realistic look and comfortable fit. Be it human hair wigs that mimic the natural hair beautifully or high-quality synthetic wigs that hold style longer and are easy to maintain, you can find a wide range of options to suit your style and comfort needs.

Another misconception is that wigs are difficult to maintain. While it's true that wigs require care, once you learn the basic steps - gentle combing, proper washing, and safe storage - the process becomes as simple as caring for your natural hair. Furthermore, at Head Lines Hair Designs, we provide comprehensive guidance on wig care, ensuring that your wig continues to offer you the best look for a longer time.

Often, people also fear the stigma attached to wearing a wig, worrying about the opinions of others. However, it's essential to remember that wearing a wig is a personal choice, made for your happiness and comfort. Many people wear wigs as a form of self-expression, to experiment with different styles, or simply because they love the convenience and versatility wigs provide. In fact, wigs have been increasingly embraced by celebrities and influencers, further solidifying their place in mainstream fashion and beauty.

Above all, wigs can be incredibly empowering, especially for those dealing with hair loss due to medical conditions or treatments. They provide an immediate solution, offering the chance to reclaim your confidence and feel more like yourself. Wigs aren't just about enhancing your appearance, but also about boosting your self-esteem and providing a sense of normalcy during challenging times.

At Head Lines Hair Designs, we stand by the belief that everyone has the right to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin - and hair. Our mission is to assist you in that journey, breaking the stereotypes, and empowering you to embrace the transformative power of wigs.

Donning a wig for the first time can bring up many questions and even cause some apprehension. At Head Lines Hair Designs, we're here to address any concerns you might have and to debunk some common misconceptions about wig-wearing.

Wigs have played a prominent role in the world of fashion and popular culture. They have long been a part of the stylistic repertoire of fashion-savvy individuals, offering an exciting opportunity to change one's look dramatically without making a permanent commitment. They have become even more popular due to their use by celebrities who constantly need to change their appearances for different roles, red carpet events, or simply to keep up with fashion trends.

Today, wigs are an essential accessory for many celebrities. For instance, pop diva Lady Gaga is well-known for her array of flamboyant wigs that have included everything from platinum blonde to pastel rainbow colors. Similarly, Hollywood actress Zendaya has also showcased her love for wigs on many occasions, with styles ranging from long, sleek locks to a chic pixie cut.

Beyond the celebrity scene, wigs have been gaining widespread acceptance as a fun and versatile fashion statement. They are not only seen as a way to change one's hairstyle but also to express individuality and creativity. One can experiment with various lengths, colors, and textures that might not be possible with natural hair. It's not uncommon to see people sporting bold wig colors like bright pink, electric blue, or even multicolored designs at fashion events, music festivals, or on social media platforms.

Historically, wigs have also held a significant place in fashion. Dating back to ancient Egypt, wigs were used as a status symbol, and the tradition continued through to the 18th century European courts where elaborate wigs were a mark of nobility. Today, they continue to evolve and influence the fashion world in new ways.
