Wigs
Alexis Hair Experts want to make the transition of regaining your hair as comfortable as possible. We provide a relaxed atmosphere, and supportive and understanding consultants who listen to your wishes. Your consultant will work with you in a private fitting room. We offer a wide selection of high quality wigs for women and girls. By trying on several styles, you can see which wig best suits you. We recommend bringing a family member or friend to help you with your choice.

If your hair loss is a side effect of cancer treatment, we understand what you are going through and can help you find just the right wig. By attending workshops that your Doctor or Oncologist recommend, you will learn all about using make up and wigs to manage the appearance-related effect of cancer and its treatment.

How do wigs stay on?
Wig attachment depends on comfort, style, and the amount of hair underneath the wig. Wigs may be attached with clips to your natural scalp hair. They may also be attached using double-sided tape or silicone strips. Wigs with a silicone base are made from a head mold and fit snugly without the need for additional attachments. Such wigs can only be attached to the scalp if it is completely bare. A properly sized wig should fit securely.

Wig construction

  • Hand-tied Wigs: Individual or small groups of hair strands are tied to the base of the wig by hand. The hair can be blown or parted in different directions. These wigs offer the most natural appearance.
  • Machine-sewn Wigs: Wefts are multiple hairs machine-sewn together at one end to create a curtain and then attached to a base. The hair can only face one pre-styled direction and cannot be parted another way without revealing the base.
  • Lace Front Wig: 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. 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 standard wig base is a cap made of elastic mesh covered wholly or in part by stretch lace. The best quality bases are made of a thin, cool monofilament material designed to mold to the shape of the head. In some models, skin-coloured latex is applied on top of the monofilament to give the appearance of natural scalp showing through the part.

Imagine a future when you can wash, condition, detangle and repair your hair using only one product. Your shower would be so much tidier, and your regimen so much simpler!

Well, the future has arrived, so go ahead and toss all those bottles gathering dust in your bathroom because New Wash cleans hair with a proprietary blend of essential oils and naturally derived saturated cleansers – and no detergents or synthetic compounds. It conditions hair at the same time, and leaves it tangle-free. Over time, it revives hair abused by detergent, damaged by bleach, and fried by heat styling. If that wasn’t enough, color lasts far longer, and troubled scalps become so much happier.
