Fall Hairstyles for Your Custom Wig

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

 

Fall Hairstyles for Custom WigsWearing a wig should never be embarrassing, especially with a new, trendy hairstyle. Change up your look this season with one of these 7 stylish hairstyles for fall. You’ll be sure to receive lots of compliments!

  1. Pin straight. This is a classic hairstyle that is making a comeback. Use a flat iron for that super sleek, shiny look.
  2. Ombre. When done the right way, ombre can actually look very polished and classy, as opposed to the usual messy look. Use warm tones, such as chocolate browns and honey colors, which are perfect for fall.
  3. Bangs. For a while, the wispy, natural looking bangs were in style. This season, try thicker bangs that go across your forehead and are slightly longer at the sides. It will draw attention straight to your eyes.
  4. Lobs. Also known as a “long bob”, lobs are very in. Add some waves to the medium to shoulder-length cut for a fun finish.
  5. Thick layers. Instead of lots and lots of smaller, thinner layers, go for thick layers. Fewer layers give a more natural look, while still looking modern.
  6. Braided crown. Especially with all the music festival hype this year, braided crowns are one of the top hairstyles of the season. This sweet up-do will be your go-to.
  7. Pixie. If you’re into the shorter look, a layered pixie is the way to go this fall. The layers give the cut a softer, more feminine look. Because the cut is styled and framed around your face, it is flattering to faces of all shapes and sizes!

Hair Loss- Why am I Suffering?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Causes for Hair LossHair loss can be a common problem for women, no matter their age or ethnicity. In fact, about 21 million women in the United States are currently suffering from hair loss according to a recent study conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. There are a number of causes for hair loss that expand from minor causes to severe causes. According to a report by Fox News, some of the causes for hair loss in women include:

 

  • Lack of Protein- If a woman isn’t consuming enough protein through their diet, hair loss could become a problem.
  • Over-styling- Excessive heat, coloring, and processing of hair can cause hair follicles to break.
  • Pregnancy- The unbalanced level of hormones during pregnancy can cause hair loss.
  • Autoimmune Diseases- Diseases cause immune cells to attack the hair cells and follicles.
  • Heredity- Hair loss can be passed down through heredity.
  • Anemia- The lack of iron in the system can cause hair loss in women.
  • Physical Stress- Any trauma to your body physically can be considered physical stress and cause hair loss.
  • Excessive Vitamin A- Consuming too much vitamin A that your body fails to filter out can cause hair loss.
  • Hypothyroidism- An under active thyroid gland can cause hair loss as well.
  • Emotional Stress- This type of stress doesn’t typically cause hair loss, but speed up an already existing problem.
