After this week, I’m sure we’ve all seen what the summer might hold for us. BBQs, going to the beach or sitting in the garden. Whatever it is, while you’re enjoying yourself, it is important to remember to take care of your wig and to be careful yourself. Here are some points to remember:
Wear a hat with a large brim if you’re outside without your wig on. It is important to keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes.
Sit in the shade when wearing your wig as you might overheat and wearing a hat over your piece can cause damage to the fibres.
Wear a high factor sunscreen. You might have been able to handle the sun previously, but your skin has heightened sensitivity throughout chemotherapy treatment and is more easily burnt.
If it is a fibre wig you have, the Soften n Sheen conditioner is more important now than ever. It will help to prevent any frizzing caused by the heat.
If it is a human hair wig you have, a leave in conditioning and hydrating spray is a must to keep the hair moisturised, free from split ends and shiny.
In our wig studio we have a wide range of products to help you this summer. We stock Christine Headwear who have a large selection of pieces ranging from light linen scarfs and fabulous straw hats with UPV 50+, to vibrant turbans. All Christine Headwear products are made from natural materials such as bamboo-viscose, linen and cotton, because a sensitive scalp needs special and comfortable protection. We also stock the Seavite range with products such as Purifying & Volumising Shampoo, Revitalising Bath & Shower Gel and Soothing and Replinishing Face Cream.
Who wouldn’t want to look absolutely fabulous on the night of their prom? That’s why we make sure every detail is perfect for the big night!
The best thing for anyone to do when having their hair done for prom is to bring any inspiration you have found with you to show your stylist. We take everything in to consideration! The colour and style of your dress, any pictures you bring in with you, any accessories you would like us to use, but most importantly we want you to love it! Anything from curling and straightening, half up half down or up-do’s! Everything will be discussed in your consultation with the stylist that will be looking after you from start to finish.
Here’s some of our top tips for prepping your hair before coming in to the salon!
Wash your hair the day before your appointment (unless it is very hot or you feel like your hair needs washing!)
Try and avoid using conditioner as your hair is manipulated a lot easier when conditioner is not used.
Always wear a zip or button up top to avoid getting tangled up trying to get a top off without ruining your hair!
Bring any pictures you have used for inspiration with you so your stylist can see what it is you have in mind.
Bring any accessories you would like in your hair with you, we can put them in for you!
If you are having make up done as well, try and do your base before getting your hair done! You can then do all the special features after!
Let us know the style and colour of your dress! We can then style your hair to emphasise your dress and all the small details!
In terms of makeup, try and avoid using a moisturiser with built in SPF!
Be prepared for plenty of Kirby grips, hair bands and a lot of hairspray!
For any more information or to book a consultation, feel free to give us a call!
Keeping your hair balanced, hydrated and well looked after in the sun is extremely important. Once you have used a cleansing shampoo; use the conditioner to help repair sun damage and improve combability instantly.
This product also helps provide any damage lost through chlorine and seas salt, with the helio restore complex that is UV filters and avocado oil.
We recommend that this product is left on the hair for at least 30 seconds before rinsing to get the best results.
Protecting your hair and skin is very important when on holiday. Making sure all of the chlorine and the effects from the beach are out of your hair everyday can really help you out when it comes to styling your hair for the evening.
The system professional Solar Shampoo is a hair and body cleanser aimed at anyone who leads an active outdoor lifestyle or holidays often.
It is designed to moisture the hair removing any salt or chlorine residue left on the hair. It is equally just as effective on the skin helping to remove any sun cream residue.
It is so important to keep your hair hydrated this time of year. Coming into the summer months can take a real toll on our hair, we seem to be going out more so are most likely using more electricals on our hair, the sun fades our colour so we are dying it more often and we are having some kind of summer holiday which again can take affect on our hair.
The System Professional Hydrate range is perfect for keeping your normal to dry hair balanced with hydration. The line has been designed with a formamoist complex providing the hair with long term moisture which helps enhance shine.
Throughout the year during changing seasons, we notice our skin can become dry hence why we moisturise. We wouldn’t leave our skin to get dryer-
especially our faces and our hair is just as important, we may not be able to see or feel that it is dry however just putting the straighteners over it once can dry the ends out.
