Costume Wigs – Let Them Go To Your Head

Article by Paul Graham







Costume wigs are more than just simple hairpieces. They can be reminiscent of a period in history, or of an character’s attitude, behavior, and secrets; and should go with the actor’s or costume wearer’s appearance. In film and theater productions, entire teams are assembled and devoted o making costume wigs. They are considered to be experts in history, make-up, and psychology. Costume wig makers wear even more thinking hats than those who wear their creations. Indeed, movies, plats, and entire parties rest their art and enjoyment on costume wigs. Costume wigs should succeed in making the unremarkable beautiful, the beautiful grotesque, and the grotesque just downright macabre.

I. Types Of Wigs

1. Stone AgeBristly and large, these wigs resemble teased hair which has been run repeatedly through a washing machine’s spin cycle before being thrown, albeit vainly, into the garbage disposal.

2. Greek or RomanThese wigs are elaborate, especially for women. They will usually be piled with curls and braids, and be interwoven with jewelry and pearls.

3. MedievalAlthough these costume wigs are often hidden behind large headdresses and veils, the war costume wigs are as bright and exposed as caveman hair. The hair shocks will stick out at angles, and will be embedded with blood and pebbles.

4. VictorianAlways powdered white, this may be embellished with ribbons and pearls. Women’s Victorian costume wigs will be bulky and piled atop their heads, and contain layers of heavy braids.

5. Roaring TwentiesThese are a favorite among costume wigs because they are small and simple, with tendrilling curls framing the brow for women, and neatly combed and parted hairpieces for the men.

6. ModernThese costume wigs comprise a broad range of styles and fits. They can be used to disguise a character, enhance a character’s looks, or simply change a character’s appearance. Such wigs can be used to dress up spies, partygoers, and exotic dancers.

7. FantasyFantasy costume wigs cover the range of make-believe fairy worlds as in the Lord of the Rings trilogy; invented alien worlds such as those in Star Wars of Star Trek, and horror situations such as those that exist in horror movies.

II. Color

A costume wig’s color and appearance contribute greatly to showing off a character. Caveman wigs are usually dark; Roman and Greek wigs dark or golden; Victorian powdered white, with increasing whiteness showing greater wealth; Roaring Twenties dark; and modern and fantasy wigs all colors and styles of choice. Although not often followed, warm colors such as deep reds can denote warmth at one end, and extreme anger or rage at another. Deep, dark colors such as black connote brains and sophistication. Light yellows and gold may signal youth, sprightliness, and lack of intellect (hence the dumb blonde stereotype). White can mean age, wealth, wisdom, and even neutrality or peace. Hot neon colors, although for the most part confined to the costume party crowd, can actually reflect a character’s need to be noticed, which may be due to the same character’s inner strife.

III. Benefits

– Adds character to a character- Looks good on the wearer- A long face can be widened- A wide, cherubic face can be lengthened to look less childish

IV. Considerations

Equally important are the actors’ skin tone and eye color. Dark skin will usually be complimented by dark colored wigs, and light skin will usually be complimented by light colored eyes. Pale skin paired with starkly dark hair can give characters a harsh look, and can be used to convey ideas of inner conflict, cruel intentions, or even sickness.

Costume wigs can be made from a variety of materials. Real human hair can be woven into wigs, although such wigs will often be more expensive. Most wigs nowadays are made from synthetic materials, providing the wig with a both eye and camera friendly (though unnatural) sheen. The industry choice, however, is yak hair, which is not only inexpensive, but close in consistency and appearance to human hair as well.

But the best wigs are, of course, made out of real hair. You’ll pay a lot of money to wear one of these wigs, but many think it’s worth the cost because it makes their costumes seem very realistic so the cost it worth it.Where is it appropriate to wear a costume wig? Costume wigs are great for Halloween parties, theatrical costumes, dress ups, Mardi Gras, and for being fun and crazy on a Friday night.

An Overview of Full Lace Wigs

An Overview of Full Lace Wigs

Article by Daniel Millions







Regular wigs have been around for hundreds of years, but in today’s modern society, people usually do not like to be noticed as wearing a wig. There are a variety of hair growing products and operations, but for some people, that option is not practical. An alternative to the traditional style of wig is the full lace wig, which appears much more realistic than its older counterpart.

Never heard of a full lace wig? The concept is relatively simple, and you have probably seen a wig of this nature at some point. Full lace wigs are made with a cap, and a lace is sewn on to the cap. On that lace, individual hairs are sewn, to make the wig look as natural as possible. A new hairline is made around your head, and the wig fits easily on. There is no limit to what you can do with the wig, including putting it in any arrangement that you desire.

The greatest part of a full lace wig is that it looks so real. Hair actually appears to be growing straight out of the scalp. Regular wigs can be quickly identified, especially if one just takes a moment to analyze it. Full lace wigs are nearly unidentifiable, so most people will not be able to tell you are wearing a wig at all. Also, the hair used is human hair, not any synthetic substitutes which are of much lower quality.

One can attach a wig to their head using two methods. They can either utilize double sided tape, or a liquid adhesive. Each option is equally applicable and neither one is better than the other. Whatever option is chosen, it should be made sure of that the product is high quality and durable. Durability is especially important for one who engages in a variety of intensive activities. If your bonding is not strong enough, it is possible that the wig will fall right off. In addition, tape and/or adhesive makes the hair look even more natural, by further accentuating the look of hair growing out of the head.

Density is the thickness of hair, and when deciding on a full lace wig, one of the criteria is how dense you want the hair to be. Most natural hair is medium dense, but one can usually pull off having light or heavy dense hair, as some people look better with less dense/more dense hair. It really is a matter of personal preference. There is an average density for human hair, and that average is what defines light, medium, and heavy density. For example, light is considered sixty percent of normal density, medium is one hundred percent, and heavy is one hundred and fifty percent. Due to the fact that full lace wigs are inherently realistic looking, the dense factor is not that critical in expressing realism.

Since individual hairs are hand sewed on to full lace wigs, and the hair is real, it is understandable that the price of the wigs would be high. People who really care about their hair should make the investment in to full lace wigs, but those who are not too mindful of it should not have a problem with a regular wig. Full lace wigs run between three hundred and five hundred dollars, although if a wig is extremely high quality and made with in-demand hair, the price can reach into the thousands.

To have natural looking hair, your best option lies in using lace wigs and lace front wigs

All of us, especially women, love our hair. We love to comb the luxurious tresses that form an important part of our crown. It is indeed a distressing feeling when we tend to lose our hair. Of course, there are expensive alternatives like grafting but not everyone can afford it. A better solution lies in using lace wigs. Lace wigs are different from standard wigs and are much better in quality. And when you are talking of the best lace wigs you must have a look at lace front wigs.

Wigs were in vogue long before the latest lace wigs were invented. Unfortunately, they were very much detectable. You could spot someone with a wig from miles away. This is one reason many people chose to have a natural look rather than look abnormal with a wig on. Not anymore. The modern wigs made of lace look absolutely real and you simply cannot detect that someone is wearing false hair. More and more people are now using these lace front wigs to give them a natural look.

What is so special about lace wigs and what about lace front wigs? For starters, lace wigs are made of real human hair and no artificial materials. Hence, the look is completely natural. These wigs also have caps that can be finished in a manner that their color perfectly matches the color of your scalp. As for the lace front wigs, these wigs have laces in the front that can be trimmed so that they look a natural extension of your actual hair.

For making lace front wigs, two different types of laces are used and both are good. The finer and more fragile lace is the Swiss lace and equally fine and sturdier lace is the French lace. The good part is that both these types are completely undetectable. You simply need to customize these lace wigs to match the color of the rest of your hair to give you a completely natural look.

How many times do you visit the barber shop to have your hair styled in a way that it looks better even when you have an ever expanding forehead or crown? Compare the expenses and the time spent on the barber shop to the cost of lace wigs and you will find that the wigs barely cost you a tad over a month. The modern lace front wigs are also extremely durable and remain perfect looking for a long time. It is a great investment for you if you have a receding hairline and want to look bushier at the top.

If you have receding hair there is no need to panic. With modern lace wigs at your disposal you can have a look like you like. Most of the celebrities use lace front wigs when they make their public appearances but can anyone detect? It makes good sense to invest in modern lace wigs before your receding hairline becomes too apparent. Believe me, no one will ever know that the crop on your head is not natural.

Do you have a receding hairline? Use natural looking lace wigs and lace front wigs to have natural looking hair.

 

 
 

What do you need – a full lace wig or a lace front wig?

What do you need – a full lace wig or a lace front wig?

Lace wigs are a rage among the public today. The main reason why they are so popular is because they are made of human hair and not any artificial element. Lace wigs are far removed from the wigs of earlier times that easily gave away their presence. The modern wigs are worn by celebrities as well as the common public to change their look. When you go to the market looking out for lace wigs you essentially have two types of wigs to choose from â?? a full lace wig and a lace front wig. Depending on your need, you can choose one from them.

Those who are rich go for more expensive options like hair regeneration and hair grafting. These are cosmetic surgery methods and considered the best option in hair growth. You will often see celebrities and the rich and the famous use these methods. But these are not for everyone. The processes of hair regeneration and hair grafting are rather expensive and cannot match the wallet of everyone. For people who want a different option, the best way is to opt for a full lace wig or a lace front wig.

So, what is the difference between a full lace wig and a lace front wig? The most basic difference is in the way they cover your scalp. A full lace wig is supposed to cover your entire head while a lace front wig is only supposed to be attached at the place where your hairline meets your forehead.

How does this difference help you? If you facing a problem with hair loss and have an increasingly balder pate then a full lace wig is ideally suited for you. It will cover your entire head and instead of the baldness to show, you will show a head full of healthy hair. On the other hand, a lace front wig is ideal for you if you are facing the problem of a receding hairline where your forehead keeps on increasing in size. A lace front wig is also used to change the look of one’s hairstyle and is often used by celebrities.

The full lace wig is applied in a different manner than a lace front wig. In the case of the former, a skull cap is used to cover the entire head and the wig is glued to his skull cap. In the case of the latter, it is attached to the forehead by using glue so that only a partial portion of your forehead is covered.

A full lace wig can be used as natural hair. You can shape or style it in any manner as you like â?? ponytail, braid, updo etc. On the other hand, a lace front wig can only be kept in the style in which it was manufactured. You cannot comb it because it will get spoiled.

While a full lace wig is more usable then a lace front wig it completely depends on your need. Decide why you want your wig and it will make it easier for you to choose among the two.

When it comes to lace wigs you have two options in a full lace wig or a lace front wig.

4 things to consider when buying full lace wigs or lace front wigs

When you are looking to buy either full lace wigs or lace front wigs, there are a few of things you need to keep in mind. If you just go to the market and buy whatever you see and like you may end up just spending money and getting no use out of the wig. Given below are some important tips for buying wigs.

Of course, there is the latest trend to shave off all the remaining hair on the head the moment people see that they are losing their hair. But this fashion does not look good on everyone neither does everyone like it. Hence, opting for full lace wigs or lace front wigs could be a very good idea.

The first thing that you need to consider is the purpose of buying the wig. If you are losing hair all over your head and are showing a bald pate then you are better off opting for full lace wigs. These wigs will cover your entire head and give you the look of having a full crop of hair all over your pate. On the other hand, if you are losing hair just on the front portion with the result that your forehead is increasing all the time then opting lace front wigs is better.

Of course, if you are just looking to alter your look then lace front wigs are better than full lace wigs. Many celebrities use the former to enhance or change their look because there is less hassle related to using these wigs. You simply need to glue the laces where the forehead meets the hairline and lo! Your look is changed. You can further alter your look by trimming the laces.

Another thing to consider when buying full lace wigs or lace front wigs is the price that they command. Like all other products, wigs are also available in multiple price range. You need to have your budget in mind before you make the purchase. There are some expensive wigs and there are some extremely cheap wigs. You need to consider the quality of the wig before you buy. Check with the seller about the bestselling wigs and try them out.

You also need to consider whether you want to keep your look as it is with the wig or you want to try out new styles. With full lace wigs it is possible to comb the hair and create new styles. However, if you use lace front wigs you can only use the style that was originally there when the wigs were created. If you try and comb a lace front wig you are sure going to destroy it.

This is all you need to consider when you are planning to buy either full lace wigs or lace front wigs. Once you keep these points in mind it becomes very simple for you to choose one of them and get that natural look. Utilize some time and you should be able to take an informed decision.

When you think and plan in advance you can choose better between full lace wigs and lace front wigs.
