Before Making that BLACK FRIDAY, CYBER MONDAY wig purchase, here are things you should know


It’s the season to update your wig collection! With so many style options to choose from, it’s important to go into your wig purchase with knowledge. Not only do you want to make a good purchase, but you also want to purchase a wig that’s going to last. Here’s what you should know before forking over your coins. 

Return Policy

Making a wig purchase is an investment. When buying from a new company, look into the return/exchange policy. Is it all sales final, or is there some flexibility if you’re not happy with a purchase. The Virgin Hair Fantasy offers a hassle free exchange on unworn, unaltered merchandise. We do everything to ensure you’re making a purchase you love, but if not, we’re happy to exchange it for something you love more. 

Good Customer Service

Does the company you plan to purchase from offer good customer service? Again, you’re making a big investment or one that could last for a couple years. Are the representatives of the company available to answer any questions you have? 

Look elsewhere if your questions go unanswered. If a simple question is ignored, in some instances the major questions could be ignored or go unanswered also. Check to see if the customer service team is helpful. It’s an added step to ensure you’re making a purchase you can be happy with. 

Head Measurements

Have you measured your head to ensure the wig you’re buying is a good fit? Are there helpful videos and tutorials to help make the right purchase? Having a wig that fits the head properly is the difference between a wig you can wear, or one you’re stuck with. 

If a video is provided, follow it with accuracy. If in doubt, have a friend or family member double check the measurements to ensure a secure fit. 

Versatility

Does the wig have some versatility to it. Sure, purchase a wig that’s stylish. But also look for one that provides versatility. Can it part on the side or the middle or is the part unchangeable? Can the wig take heat to change the look from straight to beach waves? How can you style it other than wearing it down? 

It’s a holiday purchase, yes. But it’s also a purchase that you want the most bang for your buck. Make the purchase last, and make it one to be happy about every time you look at it. 

Act Fast

When does the wig you want to purchase go on sale? The last thing anyone wants is to miss a sale! Especially on a wig that was going to up the style game. Watch the sellers page to listen out for hints of when and if there’s a sale happening. Set a reminder on your phone 10 minutes prior to the start of the sale to ensure you’re ready to go. Have your credit card handy, all the measurements taken and be ready to hit ‘Chekout’ when it’s time. 

Let’s get the best deal possible, and as informed as possible. A wig is a purchase that lasts. It’s also a purchase sure to elevate your style. Save money, look amazing. It’s a win for us.

Why Go Glueless?

Here at The Virgin Hair Fantasy, all of our units are glueless. That’s right, nothing to glue. Ever. With the exception of our raw units, that require styling the hairline, all other units come ready to wear. Take them out the box and place them on your head. There’s no glue to apply, you’re just ready to go. 

Aside from the stylish look of a glueless unit, there are numerous other reasons to go glueless. Let’s take a closer look.

Reduce Damage to Hairline

There’s the risk of damage when applying glue to the hairline. Application usually involves placing a wig cap over the hairline then applying the glue. But there’s still adhesive applied to an area that contains hair. When removing the glue, there’s the risk of also removing hair, and even the entire follicle. 

When you’re ready to wear a unit from TVHF, all you do is pop it on your head. The styling of baby hairs along the hairline eliminates the need for glue. With the added touch of wig makeup kit, the hairline blends, thus hiding the lace. 

Avoid Allergic Reaction

People with sensitive skin run the risk of an allergic reaction of glue used for units. It could start as a mild reaction and progress over time. A reaction could affect the entire face. 

The hairline of units of TVHF only contain edge control used to lay the baby hairs down. No other substances to worry about. No adhesive to apply to your face. There’s no odor of glue or glue itself. 

Ease of Removal

A glue unit has to be removed carefully to preserve the hairline itself. That requires a plan, product and time. Our units slip right off when you want them to. Just pull them straight back, and they’re off. It’s an easy transition from styled hair to bonnet or scarf if it’s time for bed. 

This makes it easy to even switch up wig looks if you desire. 

Improve Longevity of Unit

With continual application of glue to the hairline of a wig, there’s a risk of damage to the lace. A wig can be repaired, but why risk it. When there’s no glue to put on the hair, the lace stays intact. Let’s clarify, if care is taken to install the glueless unit, damage to lace is avoided. Also, there’s no licensed hairstylist to keep on payroll to put your unit on every time you need it. 

If you ask us, these are all wins. Lose the glue with our units. Follow our easy guides to measure your head and the unit fits securely. If you want added security, we can install combs. All you have to do is tell us at checkout. Order your glueless unit today. 

5 Ways to Revamp your Wig

Switch up the look of your wig without buying a new one. With a few simple tweaks, you’ll have a fresh look that didn’t cost you hundreds, or thousands of dollars. Follow just a few of the tips to update your wig, or all if you like with supplies you may already have on hand. 

To get started, gather the following tools:

  • Hair cutting shears or scissors
  • Tweezers for plucking
  • Hair dye
  • Hair ties

Cut a Bang

An easy way to give your wig a new look is to add a bang. Bangs look great on nearly everyone, it’s just a matter of how much hair to have in your bang, and/or how long you want the bang. To get an idea of where to take your style, look for pictures of celebrities or hairstyles on people with similar face shape to yours. 

If your wig is styled going back or with a side part, you will need to first trim excess lace before cutting your bang. Now, you don’t have to get scissor happy with lace trimming, you only need remove ½ inch or less of lace from the hairline. Using the hair cutting shears, simply trim a little bit of lace from the hairline. Less is always more, so start slow. Trim a little, comb the wig to the front and see if you need to trim a little more. Again, go slow.  Make sure your shears are sharp. I love the shears from thevirginhairfantasy.

Once you have the lace trimmed, part the hair at the top of the head and comb the desired amount of bang hair forward. Use a hair tie to determine where you want the bang to land and trim a little longer than that, less is more, keep trimming a little until your desired look. Style your bang with a curling wand or flat iron and viola. 

Pluck the Hairline 

If your wig came ready to wear, and you didn’t have to do anything to it, you may need to look at a few YouTube videos on hairline plucking to start. This is another process that you want to take slowly to begin. Plucking too much hair will bald your hairline instead of giving it that natural hairline look. 

Simply pluck a few hairs from the hairline to give your wig a more natural look. Plucking in the middle or on the sides can allow for ease of parting. Plucking overall just makes the hairline of your wig look like it’s your own hairline. Plucking also helps the hair lay flatter. The flatter the hair, the more natural the hairline, the more natural the wig looks. Having the right tweezers makes a difference in this process I use The Virgin Hair Fantasy fairy tweezers to give me the perfect hairline.

Switch up the Part

If you’re accustomed to wearing your part on one side, switching up the part can give your wig a new look. It sounds daring but if you always wear a side part, try a middle part for a change. If you have no part at all, try parting on the side, making the part visible. 

Take the styling of the part a step further by trimming small layers into your wig to add more of a face framing effect. Add mouse to increase the staying power of your new style option. Wear your new look with confidence and without having to alter your wig too much. 

Use Color

Add a little color to your wig to switch things up. Adding color is easier to do with a human hair wig, by the way, synthetic hair won’t take hair dye. 

Keep the color choice simple, opting for a box dye that you don’t need bleach for. Again consult photos of celebrities or hairstyles that you have always wanted to try. Choose a color that will complement your skin tone. Starting small and choosing a color slightly darker or one shade lighter, is the safe route to take. 

Something else to consider is a temporary dye over permanent. With a temporary dye, you can wash it out over a period of time. That’s helpful if you’ve never colored your wig before and want to keep things easy. 

Consult with a Stylist

If all else fails, and you find yourself stuck, consult with your favorite hairstylist. A professional trained in the art of hairstyling may see new styling options that you may not. If you can’t get to the salon, try booking a Zoom call where you try on the wig and you both discuss new looks. If you have photos, bring them to the call.  

A stylist can walk you through changes that you can make during the call. Use this type of consultation to figure out how and where to cut the hair or what process to move through to color. Having a professional hold your hand during the process of adjusting your wig can lower anxiety. A stylist may offer options ou haven’t considered as well.  

Follow all or a few of these options to update your wig at a fraction of the cost. You’re saving money, and updating your look. These are also great tips to bring out a wig that you haven’t worn in a while. Have fun and take your time, it’s fun to see what you come up with. 

TVHF PRESS ON NAILS

Why you should try press on nails

Ever thought to try press on nails, but then imagined the nails of the 90’s with sticky tabs that don’t hold? There’s news! The new line of press on nails from The Virgin Hair Fantasy not only stay on for two weeks, but they’re also fashionable. 

Nails comes in a variety of shapes and lengths to satisfy the diva in all of us. There’s a range of beautiful designs that beautify your hands and up your nail style. In case you need a few more reasons to try press on nails from TVHF, keep reading. 

Save Money

An average set of stiletto nails with design can cost $90 and up at the nail salon. These sets from TVHF range in price from $39 to $65, but won’t break the bank compared to the designs, lengths, and shapes at a nail salon. 

For what you save, you can purchase two sets of nails. Two sets of nails means up to four weeks of beautifully manicured hands. No need to return to the salon weekly for costly repairs. You can simply pop on another nail if you experience any breakage. 

Keep it Clean

Minimize the risk of exposure to germs in the air of the salon, as well as germs on unclean implements. There’s no need to soak your hands or use anything other than glue when applying TVHF nails. 

These nails are brand new and clean out the box. You’re the only person that’s touched anything. So, no germs to worry about. No need to put yourself at risk during cold and flu season either. 

Save Time 

This is the biggest game changer for me. I used to spend hours at the nail salon getting my nails done. Time spent in the chair as well as commute time, can equal hours that you can’t get back. 

With TVHF press on nails, there’s no commute, or time spent at the nail salon. It takes a fraction of the time to apply the glue and nails for a nail salon style look. Get your time back to enjoy your family and your life. 

These are not the nails of the 90’s. These are beautiful, stylish, press on nails that last for two weeks. Save money, save time and stay stylish. 

Skincare Routine

Your skin is the largest organ of the body, and the first thing people see. As the most highly visible organ, it’s important to show love and care for it the best way we can. What we eat, along with the amount of water we drink contributes to or diminishes skin radiance. Natural foods and water do the body and skin good.

I am 42 and busy but lately I have been paying more attention to my skin and I am so amazed at the results. My diet is 90% plant based and I drink lots of water. I not only pay attention to my face. I take time out for my overall skin. A good body scrub infused with natural oils will do justice to your skin. I fell in love with Spa day by tvhf body scrub. This body scrub is amazing and leaves my skin soft and radiant. I use the body scrub twice a week.

A skincare routine enhances all the good things we ingest. For some, a good skincare routine is merely washing off makeup at night. As we age, and thus our skin, maintaining its radiant appearance requires a little more elbow grease than washing off makeup. Let’s dive into some of the things we can do to maintain healthy radiant skin beyond the standard face wash. Taking a close look at natural oils and a few skincare ingredients that tackle wrinkles and radiance.

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil is from the seeds of rose bushes. The super nourishing oil with fatty acids and antioxidant oils A and C hydrate the skin and repair damage from the sun and free radicals. The natural astringent properties of rose hip oil also help minimize the appearance of pores and brighten the complexion. It increases collagen production and improves elasticity tackling things like crows feet.

Although rose hip oil is gentle and works well with other skincare products, it is high in Vitamin A. If using products with retinol, proceed with caution while using rosehip oil. This oil is gentle enough to use on the skin day and night. It’s best to apply the oil, warmed by the palms, directly to skin. If directly applying the oil to skin is too greasy, add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer or night cream.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is found in a wide range of skincare products. Though we know it as Vitamin E, in products for the face it’s known as tocopherol. Vitamin E is an antioxidant responsible for cell regeneration and cellular restoration from sun damage.

Because of its anti inflammatory properties, it’s helpful for skin irritation. It’s a great barrier to protect the skin from damage caused by the sun.

The oil is thick, and not recommended for oily or acne prone skin. Best as an ingredient in skin care products, add drops to moisturizer or other products for less greasy results. For maximum moisture, add a few drops to night cream to sleep and repair.

Collagen

As the skin ages, it loses the plump appearance and smooth supple look. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein, and is responsible for building connective tissue in the skin. Connective tissue is what provides structure to the skin, literally holding it up and helping it look firm.

Getting older comes with a decrease in the amount of collage produced, and therefore maybe more wrinkles. Exposure to the sun also reduces the amount of collagen present in the skin. One way to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen is to apply it topically to the skin. There are moisturizing creams with collagen for night and day application. A good night cream with collagen rebuilds while you sleep.

The Extra

Aside from washing makeup off at night, moisture is a key ingredient in skin health. Drinking water and applying moisturizer contributes to overall health. Applying a moisturizer with SPF helps minimize the damage caused by the sun. Choose an SPF that contains UVB and UVA protection for all of the suns rays.

Having a routine for skincare is also good practice. Picking one day a week to give yourself a facial ensures your skin’s care, doesn’t fall by the wayside. Take time to steam, cleanse and exfoliate and moisturize to improve overall health of the skin. Remember, products don’t have to break the bank to provide benefit. Use what works.
