When you want to change or enhance your look, but you want to keep things natural, consider a wiglet. If you have some of your own natural hair to work with, choosing the right wiglet may be the perfect option. Wig Elegance’s experienced stylists can help you achieve the look you are striving for with a wide variety of wiglets right in Yardley PA!
What’s a Wiglet?
Wiglet is used to describe a variety of hair accessories. A wiglet is not a full head wig, but rather a small piece covering less area and often used to enhance your own natural hair. Wiglets are ideal for those wanting to add fullness or a specific style to their own hair. Some wiglets go on top of your head for volume or to add texture, sometimes called top pieces or toppers. Wiglets also refer to pull through or add-on pieces, like buns and ponytails.
For those experiencing hair loss in small, patchy areas, a wiglet can provide the coverage they need to feel confident in their own hair again. With balding patches at the crown or on the side of the head, clip-in toppers or wig falls can provide coverage that easily blends with the natural hair.
If your hair is thinning all over as opposed to falling out in clumps, wiglets may still be a great option for you. Place strategically to add volume around your head and create a bold silhouette.
Clipped-in wiglets can also cover any scalp that shows through thinning hair. Feel more confident in your own skin when you add volume with a well-concealed wiglet.
Want to go over the top with your hairstyle? Sometimes achieving that extra high bump behind the head of volume in a half-up, half-down ‘do can be done with a wiglet that fits over the back of the crown. Adding volume where your own natural hair may fall flat, this look pumps up the silhouette of your hair.
Likewise, the perfect ponytail might just come from your favorite wig boutique. Put less strain on your own natural hair by using a voluminous, lengthy clip-in ponytail wiglet.
It’s no secret that brides want to look their best on their wedding day. You’ve done the bridal workouts, tailored your gown within an inch of its life, and tried out a hundred make-up looks. But what if your hair is simply not cooperating with the look you want?
Wiglets are many a bride’s secrets. A little volume here, an extra boost there, and suddenly brides have an elegant chignon to complement their silk gown with the five-foot train. When wedding pictures will last forever, don’t walk don’t the aisle feeling less than confident about your hairstyle.
Stage and screen performers are notorious for wearing wiglets to help boost the body and shape of their hair when getting up in front of others. Singer Adele is well-known for boosting her own natural hair with wiglets to achieve maximum 1960’s-esque volume.
Similarly, pop star Ariana Grande revealed her signature ponytail to be a faux wiglet. She had achieved her long, straight locks by wearing a ponytail wiglet mixed with her own shorter, wavy hair. She even owned this in her well-known song “7-rings” singing “You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it.”
Ballerinas with short hair are another type of performer who may take advantage of a wiglet such as a faux bun. To keep consistency in the look of the company, these dancers can use bun wiglets to mask their own short locks on performance days.
If you are a performer looking for a way to stay visible on a distant stage or cope with camera distortions, consider a wiglet to enhance your own natural hair.
Which Wiglet is Right for You?
Wiglets are great for adding volume to naturally thin hair. If you have short hair, look for wiglets that can add texture. With wiglets you don’t have to worry about hiding or tucking in your own hair, you’re simply enhancing it.
With that said, it’s important to match the color and texture of the wiglet to your own natural hair that you will be working with. For instance, if you have dark brown hair, a sandy blonde wiglet will not look natural. Or if you have curly hair, a straight-style wiglet will not blend well.
At Wig Elegance, we help you find the right color and texture by matching wiglet samples in-shop or even fitting in-stock pieces. When you come in for an appointment, you can leave with confidence knowing the right kind of wiglet is on its way to you.
How to Style Your Wiglet
The hallmark of a great wiglet is how well it blends with your natural hair. As it is meant to enhance—rather than cover like a traditional wig—getting the right texture and color is essential. Working with experienced professionals at Wig Elegance can teach you how to style your wiglet.
Knowing where to clip your wiglet in for the best blend and hairline is the first step. As everyone’s skull is unique, we can help you place your wiglet in the salon so you can confidently secure it at home. If you plan to style your hair around the wiglet, such as adding matching beachy waves, we can also show you how to carefully fix these styles for a natural look.
The best way to choose the right wiglet is to come into the Wig Elegance boutique and try wiglets on. With such a variety of styles and looks, wiglets are ideal for daily wear as well as special occasions. They travel well and they won’t change or frizz in inclement weather.
