In this article, we’ll explore more about how human hair wigs are made.
Human hair wigs are wigs that are made from hair sourced from human donors. There are certain criteria that must be met in order for the hair to be used to make a wig:
The average cost of a human hair wig ranges from around $700 to $2,000+. While the cost is higher, the quality makes it worth the investment. A human hair wig will last an average of 1 to 3 years with proper care and maintenance. Finally, since they are made from real human hair, they look and feel the most natural.
There are several steps involved in the creation of human hair wigs:
The first step is to construct the base, which is referred to as laying the foundation. A stable base is necessary for holding the hair in place. The technician starts by forming a plaster mold using a standard template or measurements provided by the client. Once complete, the mold can be turned into the base. There are several different wig bases, including:
Once the base is ready, the hair must be prepared. There are several steps involved in this process:
The next step in the wig-making process is to attach the hair to the cap. This process is known as ventilation.
The final step in the process is to style the wig. First, a wet brush is run through it to dampen the fibers. Then, the style is put in. If it is a curly wig, we put curlers in it. If it’s straight, we blow it out. However, we avoid using high heat, as this could damage the fibers.
There are several different types of wigs on the market. Human hair wigs are the most popular because their appearance and texture are the most natural- because it is made from real human hair. However, they are more expensive than other options - but if cared for properly, can last for several years.
Full synthetic wigs, on the other hand, are more budget-friendly. While this can allow you to get a few different wigs to experiment with different looks, these wigs do not last as long. Plus, in most cases, they cannot be heat-styled like human hair wigs because the fibers will burn. Finally, they wear out and will need to be replaced more often than human hair.
The final option is the synthetic/human hair blend. These wigs are more durable and longer-lasting than full synthetic wigs and less expensive than human hair wigs.
