About Human Hair Wigs, Pieces, and Toppers

Friday, May 30th, 2014

When you are faced with hair loss due to a medical condition, it can take a devastating toll on your spirit. Women feel a connection with their hair; we use our hair to express ourselves and without it, we can feel naked and vulnerable. However, there are many options for women experiencing all types of hair loss. The options and choices can be overwhelming, so take your time and learn about each option to decide which is best for you. One of your options is a custom human hair wig, partial hair piece or topper. Not all hair loss requires a full wig….

Human Hair Custom WigsA custom wig uses all natural human hair that looks and feels more natural than a synthetic wig. Human hair wigs may last up to a year when cared for properly while enduring more styling than a synthetic wig. A synthetic wig normally lasts only 6 months. A human hair wig uses hair from about 8 different people from different ethnicities. The most common used hair is from those of European, Indian and Chinese ethnicity. European is beneficial because of its fine texture. This allows it to look most natural and feels silkier. Chinese and Indian hair is thicker, which allows it to more durable and handle more chemical processing. Wigs made from human hair can be treated like your own hair more so than a synthetic wig. Human hair can be customized by cuts and coloring and can be styled using a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron.
Remy hair, which is considered to be the highest quality of human hair, can be used for human hair wigs. Remy hair is so special because it is never stripped during the wig making process. The slower process protects the cuticle which in turn keeps the cuticle intact. This allows hair to stay healthier and strong and look the most natural. Remy hair wigs offer the longest wear and they remain tangle free.

At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we specialize in the customization and maintenance of human hair wigs
and hair pieces. Our owner, Bonnie Grauer, connects with each of our clients through her own story;
she is a 9year breast cancer survivor. We will work with our clients to find the best style of wig that
works for them, allowing each and every woman that step through our door to feel the confidence they
need to face such an uphill battle.

Wigs and Hair Solutions: Custom Wigs for Women

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Custom wigs for Cancer PatientsAt Wigs and Hair Solutions, we specialize in helping women through hair loss during difficult medical times with custom wigs for women. Our specialists understand how important it is for women to keep their identity during such a harsh time. One of the ways women show their identity is through their hair, so once that begins to thin and disappear; a woman can feel lost and hopeless. Bonnie Grauer, Wig and Hair Solutions owner, is a 6 year survivor of breast cancer as well as a salon owner of 24 years. She has experienced the loss first hand and uses her experiences to help and relate to women who visit us. Bonnie is so committed to helping women during their fight that she sold her salon, Symmetry Hair Studio, in November of 2011 to devote all of her time to Wig and Hair Solutions.

We strive to achieve a look that is not only flattering but looks natural. Women will feel self-conscious when wearing a wig, so we want it to look as if you’re not wearing one at all. To most people, hair isn’t a big deal and that’s because it can be taken for granted. Once your hair is taken from you, a woman can feel naked and vulnerable, especially during a medical hardship. That’s where we come in.

Some of the medically related hair loss that we see includes:

  1. Chemotherapy
  2. Radiation treatments
  3. Alopecia
  4. Chemical damage
  5. Genetic pattern baldness

We offer custom synthetic wigs and custom human hair wigs to help our clients achieve the look they want. We customize your wig by shaping, coloring, and styling it to best fit you and the style you want to embody. We can also help you with wig maintenance if needed. When women leave Wig and Hair Solutions in Ellicott City, they leave feeling empowered and confident despite their medical situation. Our hope and goal is to allow each and every woman that comes to see us leave knowing they can overcome anything.

To schedule an appointment for a consultation for a custom wig , partial enhancement or ready to wear wig call us at 410.720.8588.
