Reasons to purchase a Wig!

10 Aug

perruques1Cancer patients and people who are bald are the only ones who purchase wigs!

Fiction. It is true that women and men who suffer from hairloss (permanent or temporary) will need a wig more as a necessity than a luxury.

However, there are many people who purchase wigs for “fun” or for “convenience”. I shall explain, for example who have women out there who dye their roots every 3 to 4 weeks. It could be because they have grey hair that they are convering, or because they changed their hair color. Paying for dying your roots so frequently is very expensive, (usually over 100$) as well as time consuming. It is also very damaging to the hair. Putting on a wig or a hairpiece can extend the time before you need to re-dye your hair.

A wig is also great for vacations and cruises. A great example is this, you are on the beach enjoying the ocean. Your hair gets wet = disaster, so having a wig would be a quick solution, no hour on blow drying your hair. Put the wig on and have FUN :)wigs

I write because I know! Recently I went on a weekend getaway and obviously I couldn’t help but go swimming. In the evening, I literally put on my wig and I was ready to go. No waste of time, no problems, just beautiful hair.

Laurie perruques rl modaRL Moda Wigs came out with a new selection of wigs that range between 400-700$. They are gorgeous protein heat resistant synthetic with a very natural hairline. It’s a small investment considering the amount we pay at hairdressers.

Braiding a wig

25 Dec


Being in the hair industry we see many different hairstyles, colors and hair cuts.  Sometimes we get inspired, sometimes we just do what we are told.  However, we are always looking for new looks and styles to offer to our clients.

Braids have existed for ages and for some reason they are timeless and there are hundreds of ways to braid your hair.  You can opt for a sporty look to a glamorous updo.  So this being said, I work with wigs and hair extensions, so when something interests me I cannot just stop at saying that braids are only done on someone’s own natural hair, I need to go further.

So after experimenting, wigs can be braided into some of the great styles that exist.  However, it is done in a more delicate way and we have to pay more attention to detail.  Braiding a wig we also have to be careful to not let the cap show.

If you have an event, or you would like us to braid your wig just contact us.

Holiday Hair Ideas

13 Dec

So it’s that time of the year again…  So we are busy shopping for gifts for our family and friends, we are looking for clothes, shoes and accessories for all the parties we are invited to.

What about our hair?  Well there is the conventional I will go get a wash and set at my hairdresser, maybe get my color done.  Yet I do not look that much different.

So here are some ideas from me to you, I hope you enjoy.


Shown in this picture is a full wig.

Red is in this season.  Plad dresses, vests, jackets and some fantabulous outfits.

If you decide to rock some red this season, how about trying lighter hair colors such as a strawberry blonde.  You can do your own hair, put on a wig (synthetic or human depending on your buget) or simply add RL Moda Hair Extensions in blonde, auburn or red hair extensions and create a two tone hair color. If you want to be festive you can get single RL Moda clip-in extensions with funky colors, they are quite inexpensive and fun to use.

Leave your hair straight and down, you can add some soft layers in the front to frame your face.

If you have short hair and need volume come get a topper hair piece, in literally 30 seconds you will have full gorgeous Hollywood hair to match your amazing outfit!

*Tip: wear a tight fitting dress so that you do not have enough space to go on an eat-a-thon ;)

How about sporting a side dew?  You can do it simply by curling the bottom of your hair, 

twist your hair around each other and use some pins to keep it to the side.  A professional soft

 hairspray will allow you to keep your hair in place without making it stiff and sticky.

How about a pretty dress, great colors this season are black and gold, or black and silver.  Such classic colors blended with amazing designs.  To add icing on the cake, accessories are in!  Oh yes, big earrings, big rings, gorgeous necklaces and stunning bracelets are illuminating stores everywhere.

If you aren’t going to a formal event during the holidays, I wouldn’t suggest dressing too gaudy.  Try going in with a more simple dress.  You can never go wrong with a simple black or blue dress.  Add a pretty wrap to make it original.

Ok so maybe you want to go with a more fun look?  A pretty black and white patterned dress is a fun way to go. You can find so many nice dresses in black and white patterns to go with all occasions.  If you decide to go this route, try making your hair BIG.  Oh yes I said it!  Gorgeous volume (add volume with a topper hair piece). Curl it up and show off your gorgeous locks.  (you will thank me ;)

If you are not into dressing up and rather rock a more casual or sporty look, do a high pony.  It is in style again.  When I say high ponytail I do not mean “I dream of Genie” type of  high but high enough for it to be fun and cute.  


Don’t do this (Genie ponytail)

Don’t need to slick it back, you can add volume by teasing your hair in the front and on top to give it a bump.


Need I say more? LOL

Don’t do an 80′s bang, that is not what I mean.

Hope you enjoy these tips.

I still have hair, but I want to add more and fast!

8 Sep

We all know that wigs are for full hair loss, hairpieces and toupees are for partial hair loss, and hair extenstions are to add volume and length.  What if I told you that all the methods mentionned can be used with partial hair loss.

So yes a full wig is always the first choice for a full hair loss.  It covers from the front hair line to the neck line.  This gives the impression that the person still has hair even though under the wig it is empty.  However, a wig can be used as an accessory as well.

It is simply put a couple of inches behind your natural hair line.  It gives the impression that the wig is actually your hair since we see the hair line is 100% yours.  However, when using an integration method, it is of great import that the hair matches in color, hair density (thickness) and texture.


For hair extensions and  toupees, the same thing applies.  They need to match the hair that is supposed to be integrated.  Always make sure that when you purchase one of the above items that this applies, otherwise you will never be happy with the outcome.  


Wigs can be integrated!

Living in Montreal is definately a city that is known for style and fashion, whether its clothing, makeup and of course hair!  So how is it that a wig can be fashionable?Old Jessica

So first of all, a wig can be worn many ways, I should know.  One way is the traditonal way where the wig starts at the hairline and fits the full head.  This option is usually the best option if you do not have any hair, you wear a wig that is a different color then your own hair, or you just do not like your hair style.  This method includes fastening the wig with clips, tape or glue or just placing it on the head without any extra support.






The other option includes integrating the wig with your own hair, it can even be a 1/2 an inch or more of hair in the front and in the back as well.   This option is really natural because you can use your own hair line.  It also gives you the option to pull your hair back or put a ponytail with the wig.  We usually fasten the wig with clips since it would be the safest way to ensure the wig is secure.

To use this option please make sure your hair matches the wig in question and also use a human hair wig to ensure that the hair quality and textures match as much as possible.



If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
