human hair

We always see people with different hair colors from either on TV or in the poster, or even in person. They have their hair in black, brown, blond, red, yellow, grey, white, green, pink, blue, etc. Have you ever wondered why people have so many different hair colors?

Like the case of different colors in human skin and eye colors, human body produces two pigments: emplaning in dark brown and black hair which is also known as melanin, and pheomelanins in red and blonde hair. As the color depth is determined by the amount of melanin, therefore, human beings will have different hair colors ranging from dark black (when there is lots of melanin) to light blonde (when there is less melanin and more pheomelanins).

According to the research data, the most commonly seen hair color among the human beings around the world is black, with brown (also called “brunettes”) next to it, due to the reasons factors of different regions, climates, dietary habits and geological conditions.

 

 

Blond hair may range from nearly white to a dark blond. The mixture of blond and red hair is called “strawberry blond”. And as you have certainly noticed, there are also redheaded people. Their hair color ranges from fair red to auburn and dark burgundy and is the rarest hair color of all

4What about grey or white colored hair? This kind of hair color is mainly appeared among aging people, whose body has probably stopped producing melanin so that their hair can only appear light pigments by presenting the grey or white colors. However, for some people white hair can appear as early as in their childhood, which may be caused by gene or lacking calcium. Though it’s one of the most fashionable colors now as we all know.

As for other are extremely hair colors such as green or purple, don’t be curious, because they are not a person’s natural hair

color and they have artificially been colored or dyed with different colorants. Others are wearing colored hair extensions to protect their natural hair.

A wig is a head covering made from human hair, synthetic fiber, or animal hair. It’s worn for fashion or other reasons, including cultural tradition and religious observance. The word “wig” is short for periwig and first appeared in the English language in 1675.

Some people wear wigs to disguise baldness; a wig may be used as a less intrusive and less expensive alternative to medical therapies for restoring hair. Wigs may also be used as an article of apparel, or to fulfill a religious obligation. Actors often wear costume wigs in order to portray characters. Human hair wig is the most expensive because it is comfortable to wear and looks natural. There are lace front wigs, full lace wigs, silk top wigs and traditional wigs.

Now we will talk about one of the most popular wigs, lace wigs:

A lace wig or a lace front wig is a special type of hairpiece or wig designed with a sheer lace base. Lace front wigs are made with real human hair or synthetic hair is which tied by hand, to a sheer lace base. Lace front wigs have replaced the traditional beauty supply regular wigs. They look very natural & are designed from a special lace material that allows the wig to blend in with your skin when properly applied. The hair is hand tied to the lace material which makes the wig appear that it is growing from your scalp. The wig have the versatility to be worn in hairstyles including updo ponytails.Full lace wigs may have a base made entirely of lace while the more common tactic is a lace front wig which has the sheer lace only at the front where the hairline is visible. The remainder of the wig is made out of a less fragile material which is less susceptible to ripping or tearing than the lace. Full lace wigs can be pulled into a high ponytail and up-do’s, as opposed to lace front wigs. The lace is only in the front half of the wig, to allow the customer to part the hair any way he or she wants. If a lace front wig is pulled into a ponytail it will be obvious that it is a wig.

The lace wig is usually attached with the assistance of glues and tapes, which are applied to the front hairline area. Once the glue has dried, the front lace portion of the wig is affixed to the area where the glue has been applied on the hairline, creating a tight bond which keeps the lace wig in place on the head. Some lace wigs also have what is referred to as “baby hair” around the temple areas which are used to cover up any visible signs of lace on the forehead, and the baby hair also helps to create a realistic hairline. Once applied the lace front wig will usually stay bonded for up to a week.

3 Tips For The Perfect Lace Front

*1 Hide Your Own Hair

If you have your own hair, we recommend pulling it back and securing it under a nylon wig cap. You don’t want any of your hair to be exposed underneath the lace front. If you don’t have your own hair, simply place the lace front where your natural hairline would be.

*2 Match Your Skin Tone

If the lace material is lighter than your skin tone, you can use a damp bag to dye the material to match. The more you dab onto the material, the darker the color. Or you can simply use makeup to blend it in.

*3 Handle With Care

Keep in mind that lace is a very delicate material and should be handled with care, especially when you take your wig on and off or wash it. If you need to trim the lace, we recommend taking your wig to a professional and only using pinking shears.

I think every girl and woman has seen these epic TV series of “Game of Thrones.” The power struggle, intrigues, passion and fantasy makes these series so popular and must-seen. Today we are going to speak about this movie’s hairstyles that look antique, Renaissance and Middle Ages inspired. I will show you how to make the same styles and layering as in “Game of Thrones.”

Hair Symbolism is felt in these gorgeous and goddess-like styles that are made by TV series hair stylist Kevin Alexander. He has created timeless looks that are so popular among many girls and women. Kevin showed us his own beauty-world of “Games of Thrones”. The stylist was inspired by Mayan, Indian cultures. It’s like a time machine that takes us back to the medieval times.

Look at Cersei, Daenerys and Sansa who appeared in so eye-catchy looks. You are about to see tousled waves, twisted tresses and braided up-down dos that are timeless and are perfect for wearing at special occasions.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)

Emilia Clarke who plays role of Daenerys Targaryen looks amazing and she has kind of tribal touch in her styles, as each of the styles evokes her strength, warrior instinct and power. She’s the mother of dragons and her gorgeous blond locks underline her character. Her tousled waves make her look romantic and feminine. Her braids are known as Dutch braids and they are quite easy to achieved. This look is comprised of four braids split into two pairs across two sections of hair. If you want something fresh, then Targayen has another amazing look: voluminous braid.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)

Cersei Lannister is a real witch-princess, who has a diabolic spirit, which is hidden under her romatic waves and braided sections. She chooses romantic locks that make her look sweet and charming. Her charming styles will look amazing on a beach holiday, as well as at the summer parties and casual events wearing along with maxi dresses. These braided and wavy hairstyles will look intricate and as you can see they are easily to recreate.

Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)

Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark appears in voluminous styles, including easy as well as complicated hairstyles. I personally love those double-braid styles that feature long and flowing locks. Indeed, some of the Sansa’s styles are the simplest ones that feature the Game of Thrones series. But keep in mind, that the key to this look is well groomed locks with no split ends, so you have to make a sleek look before recreating any style that is showcased below.

Hair dancing is very popular in various types of opera dramas, especially the Peking opera.

Hair dancing, a classic movement involving whipping the hair, is often used to express various mental states such as anger, panic, insanity, despair, pain and struggle etc. Different hairstyles in the opera drama are created and beautified on the basis of ancient people’s dress and adornments. In the drama, Dan, Clean and Ugly are all wearing wigs with varying lengths of either 2 feet 2 inches or 1 foot 5 inches.

The following is the construction method of the hair used for hair dancing. Tie together a bunch of hair, fastening the tie about two inches from the hair tip. Attach the end of the hair to a round cap of about two and a half inches. Finally, makeup is applied and the completed wig is ready to be worn.

The most famous hair dancing artists are Wang Xiaonong and Zhou XinFang. For example, in one of Master Wang’s performances, he plays the role of Chongzhen Emperor, the last one in Ming Dynasty. During this time, the whole country is going to be conquered by Li Zicheng(the late Ming dynasty peasant uprising leader). Master Wang portrays most vividly Chongzhen Emperor’s desperate and panic mood by whipping the hair upright the head and sweeping it back to cover the face like an umbrella. Master Zhou’s best card is to combine the hair dancing with whisker whipping. When hair turns right, whiskers can be whipped towards left. Natural, unrestrained and skilled, we can acclaim it as the peak of perfection.

It is critical for hair dancing to be quick, neat and fluid. These three words are easy to say but hard to realize. Hair dancing differs from sword, spear, fan and peacock feathers. It is hard to balance the strength required to whip the hair. Ordinarily, It will be either dazzling or drifting with improper strength displayed. Actors primarily use the head and neck to control and adjust the hair. If an individual uses the hand to adjust the hair, he is not well skilled and the performance will not satisfy the audience.

The hair dancing is one of the most important dramatic movements with artistic aesthetic feeling. When I was a little girl, I attempted to tie a tower to my head to practice hair dancing because of curiosity, but I never succeeded. Gradually, I learned from Peking Opera the key is to rotate the head in one direction quickly and use the neck as an axel. Only in this way, can the hair be whipped excellently with the inertia effect. Common hair dancing include movements like whipping, raising, rushing, rotating, flashing etc., in many different directions such as left, right, forwards, backwards and round.

cap construction

There are many ways for wigs to be constructed to cover the entire scalp. Different clients choose different types of wigs taking comfort, breathability and appearance into consideration. The main types of wig cap constructions are as follows:

Capless Cap, Traditional Cap, Lace Front Cap, Mono Crown Cap, Mono Top Cap/handtied, Full Lace Cap, Mono Top/Wefted Back, and Skin Top Cap.

Capless Cap and Traditional Cap belong to capless or machine-made cap, which is very common in synthetic wigs and has a relatively lower cost. Lace Front Cap, the popular cap construction in recent years, adopts front lace handtied workmanship and can achieve the effect of a natural hairline. The dimension of lace can be custom designed. The common type for the black has the dimension of 13″x3″ while 5″x1.5″ for the white.  With more human labor involved in using the hand tied workmanship, the price is much higher than the capless cap and traditional cap.

Full Lace Cap,100% hand tied workmanship, can reach a more natural wearing appearance. The common types include full lace, full lace with elasticized net, ear to ear full lace with elasticized net. Since 100% hand tied, it needs a longer production period, usually fluctuating from 20 to 30 days.

Mono Top Cap is common in wigs for patients. Mono(monofilament) refers to a cap material similar to lace with smaller meshes and smooth surface. It is usually transparent skin color and mainly used on the top of head, which can create the illusion of hair growing from the scalp. The back part of Mono Top Cap can use machinery made or handtied workmanship and the front part can add some lace. Mono Top Cap has various of compound modes. Mono crown and mono part are actually derived from traditional mono top with the dimension of hand tied area reduction, which cannot only decrease the cost but also more comfortable wearing and natural looking.

Skin Top/ Silk Top Cap is widely used for Jewish wigs and creates and unbelievable real look.The silk top lace wig has French or Swiss lace around the perimeter and the top of the crown contains a piece of silk (usually 4×4 or 5×5 in.), through which individual hairs are injected. The knots are hidden under the silk base and are not visible, giving the illusion of hair growing directly from your scalp.
