You’ve worn wigs before. However, when you bought your new wig, you were able to touch it, handle it in the store and try it on. With an online purchase, you don’t have that option. Well, how do you decide which lace front wig to select? Are there measurements, what else do you need to know to make the right purchase for you?

Don’t fret. The Virgin Hair Fantasy is here to help. Here’s your guide to how to buy a wig online as a first timer. After reading this guide, you’ll know what questions to ask, how to select a style and get a stylish upgrade in no time!

Style

Select a hairstyle similar to one of your favorite hairstyles from the past. This will take the guesswork out of selecting a style that looks good on you. It’s easier to get used to something that you have worn before. If you don’t have a hairstyle reference, look online at hairstyles on people with a similar face shape to yours. Decide if you want medium length, or long hair. Do you want highlights or a more natural color? Begin here in the wig selection process.

Wig Type

What type of lace front wig do you want? Are you comfortable applying glue to your hairline on a regular basis to keep the wig attached? If not, a glueless lace front option is the best fit for you. With glueless lace fronts, the wig fits perfectly to your head with combs and an elastic band. A Glueless wig can be taken off and on very easily.

Cap Size

Selecting the right cap size is the most important step, and ensures an accurate fit for your wig. There are videos online detailing how to determine the correct wig size. Measuring your head with a tape measure is the standard way to determine the correct cap size for you. The right cap size ensures your glueless lace front fits to perfection.

Customer Service

Make sure that the company you order your wig from has excellent customer service. If you have a question, are they quick to provide an answer? Find out the exchange and return policies. Perform a quick Google search to read customer reviews. Get the specifics on shipping times. You need to know how long the wait is for your new wig. A great team makes a huge difference in your wig buying experience. So select a company that is helpful from the start.

Buying a wig online for the first time can be a wonderful experience. After understanding the logistics, and armed with a little knowledge, you can make the wig purchase that is right for you. If all else fails and you find yourself in need of more help, call the team at The Virgin Hair Fantasy, and we will gladly help you make the best purchase for you.

SPRING STYLES

Spring is here, and Jane, THE WIGMAKER is ready to offer tips to help you ladies serve looks. Spring is the best time to give new style ideas a test run. What better way than wearing a wig to try something new, daring and fresh. Here are the top spring styling tips to turn heads this spring in a wig.

Curls, Curls and More Curls

Refresh an old wig with curls. Add a new look to an older human hair wig by setting a curly look with rods. All you need is a little styling lotion and curl rods, ½ inch or smaller, depending on the desired look. Set curls under a hooded dryer or with a curling wand if you choose.

Separate the curls one by one to build volume. Go slow and stop once you achieve the desired look. The more you seperate the bigger the hair. Cut layers for added style and more volume and place a part on your favorite side for sex appeal.

The Classic Bob

The bob is timeless. The Chic Bang from the Virgin Hair Fantasy is the perfect length and offers a chic and natural look. Light layering on the ends and low density make this one of the most natural looking bob wigs on the market.

Most wigs reach beyond the shoulders. If styling your own, simply take a few inches off the ends to achieve a short bob style. Add a minor curve to the ends with a flat iron, and layer the ends to fluff the look a little. A bob just above the shoulders keeps you cool when the temperatures rise. There’s the option to be stylish but without an overwhelming amount of hair.

Get Colorful

The gray trend like the Silver Fox, from The Virgin Hair Fantasy, isn’t getting old any time soon. Keep the styling simple with a flat iron or big curls on a gray look.

If gray isn’t your thing, a more natural looking brown is an easy wig upgrade. Browns provide a “kissed by the sun” look to wigs, and even natural hair. If it’s time to step out with a completely new look, go for something bold like blue. Limiting the color to the ends, with dark roots, adds a touch of boldness without going overboard. Take the style quotient up a notch with voluminous curls.

If it’s a wig that’s been sitting around for a while, try a new style on your own. Consult your hair care professional to reduce costly mistakes when coloring and cutting wigs that are investment pieces. Whatever styling tips you choose, you’re sure to enter spring with style. If you’ve got a custom look in mind, The Virgin Hair Fantasy is ready any season to help you stay in style.

Wig Refresh

If you’re staying home to “flatten the curve,” thank you. This likely means you’re in the house, limiting contact with friends and family, finding creative ways to busy yourself. It also means you’ve skipped a hair appointment,  perhaps several.

If you’ve ever thought to revive an old wig(peruca), now is time for its debut. We’ve got a few tips for you.
1. Detangle your wig. Using a wide tooth comb, or detangling brush, remove any tangles. Work from the ends up in small sections.
2. Wash the hair. Once your wig is fully detangled, it’s time to wash the hair. Wet the wig m, and apply shampoo along the length of the hair. Work the shampoo through the hair by squeezing from root to ends. Massage the hair very lightly to distribute shampoo, careful not to tangle it. Rinse the shampoo out.
3. Deep condition. After the hair is clean, apply conditioner. The Virgin Hair Fantasy hair softener removes tangles making the hair manageable and easy to comb. Apply the conditioner the same way you did shampoo. Leave whatever conditioner you choose on the hair for at least 10 minutes. Rinse conditioner out and squeeze the hair dry with a towel
4. Dry. Allow the hair to air dry by placing it flat on a towel. Comb through the hair once more. Place any parts you desire, in the hair, or leave them out.
5. Style the hair. Once the hair is dry, style as desired. Add curls with a curling iron or wear hair in it’s natural state. Put the wig on while styling for best results.
6. You’re all set. You’ve revived your new wig! Wear it at your leisure. Store it on a mannequin head or the bedpost, or a bottle of shampoo to keep shape.
All tips listed work best for human hair. Follow the instructions on synthetic hair wigs for best results.
Revive your human hair wig with these simple steps. Repeat these steps after one to two weeks of wear or as needed. Buy yourself some time and make use of an investment.

Chef & I talk about our immune system

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

How to Survive Coronavirus as a Small Business

If you’ve been watching the news lately, you know Coronavirus is affecting people worldwide. Not just people, but businesses as well, perhaps yours.

Some small businesses depend on suppliers from China to send products. Shipments of goods are being held up at ports because manufacturers want to keep their workforce healthy.

If your business is affected by Coronavirus with delayed or stopped shipments  I want to offer a few tips on how to get through this.

Look for New Suppliers

Luckily China, is not the only supplier of goods. There are Indian vendors and vendors in other countries that may have what your business needs, at the same price or cheaper.

Alibaba is a China based company, however, you can select which countries to search for goods. After entering the product in the search tab, a list of suppliers appears. In the category tab, at the far left there’s an option to select country. Check to see if there are suppliers outside of China.

Google Search

A simple Google search can yield surprising results. As a small business, you know exactly what supplies you need.

If you sell jade face rollers, for example, search Google for jade face roller suppliers. A list will appear. Scroll through the list to see what suppliers come up. Send an email or call to get business specifics.

Diversify

Is there something else you can sell? A different product perhaps, or can you package your knowledge about small business and sell that.

The specialized skills you’ve acquired to run your business are valuable. If you’ve thought about packaging your knowledge and selling it, now’s the time.

If there are other business ideas brewing, try those out. Look around your warehouse and workshop. There could be surplus of supplies that someone else needs. Sell it.

Communicate

Do you stay in contact with customers through newsletter  email, blog posts or social media? If so, keep them in the loop about what’s going on with business.

Let them know how you’re working to get shipments out on time, or what the status of an order is. Thank them for their business, and patience as your company works through this challenge. Reach out to your network of customers if you need help with something. There’s strength in community.

Stay Calm

It’s easy to panic when the bread and butter of your business, supply, is affected. It’s the way you put food on the table and feed your family, that’s no joke. Let’s get through this together.

First things first, take a deep breath. Trust God that your business will survive this. This isn’t the first time a pandemic has threatened business. Somebody else has experienced a similar challenge, and made it through. So will you, and your business.

Believe that there’s a solution or work around for this challenge, you WILL find it, and make it out on the other side. You’ll survive, with a story to share with the next business owner about braving challenging times.
