Are there any styles similar to the discontinued Statement Piece by Raquel Welch?

Statement Piece by Raquel Welch is such a gorgeous style! It’s so sad she’s been discontinued, we do have some amazing similar styles though! I’ve included some suggestions below:

Alessandra by Jon Renau

Intoxicating Spice by BelleTress

Scene Stealer by Raquel Welch

**Time to state the obvious, ugly truth: Please keep in mind that these styles/shade suggestions are just recommendations from us here at Cysterwigs! We are in no way, shape, or form pushing you to purchase a certain style or color. Simply giving our suggestions. (Which we LOVE btw!) Any time you purchase a wig without seeing it in person first or trying it on, you are taking a risk.

How to revitalize deflated permatease

What you’ll need:

a virgin toothbrush with firm bristles

holding spray (if your wig is synthetic, make sure it’s synthetic safe!)

a styrofoam head

T-pins

sectioning clips or bobby pins

wide-toothed comb

a small pair of sharp scissors

1. Use T-pins to pin the wig right-side-in (so the hair is facing you, not the inside of the cap) on the styrofoam head. I generally put t-pins at the nape, forehead, ear tabs, and crown. Make sure wig is nice and secure before moving on to step 2.

2. Use the wide-toothed comb to gently brush the hair back, directly off the face, to best expose any wefts on the top of the head and / or crown that you want to fluff up.

3. Use sectioning clips or bobby pins to separate the individual wefts.

4. Look on the underside of the weft, near the bottom, where it is sewn into the cap. This is where the permatease lives! Moving in small horizontal strokes, take the virgin toothbrush and “saw” back and forth with gentle pressure. This will help fluff up the permatease again.

5. Continue throughout the areas of the cap that you want to fluff up.

NOTE: It’s okay if it seems like you are fluffing things too much. You can always tame things back down at the end. “More is better” is generally the way to go when you do this.

6. Flip the wig upside-down and spritz with the hair spray. Allow to dry.

7. Remove from styrohead. Now that everything is nice and fluffy, use your fingers to style the wig as you want it to look.

8. Trim any obnoxious fly-aways with the scissors. (Carefully.)

That’s it!

This technique works particularly well with Rene of Paris and Noriko wigs. I use it on my Amal and Cameron wigs to squeak a few more months out of them, since (for example) the biggest issues with ROP wigs tend to be permatease failure issues and not the fibers getting frizzy. Give this a whirl and see if it helps you too! 🙂

BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN

By CysterWigs Contributor

We live in a dangerous place. And by “dangerous” I mean ideal. A place where some things, people or situations have been deemed “the only acceptable type’’; a place where there is no room for improvement or diversity. This is a dangerous way to view life or live life because it gives no room for originality.

People who aren’t the “ideal type” are often seen as odd or weird. And when you’re odd or weird, you might be considered an outsider or a freak. It’s sad. If that’s ever happened to you, please know that you’re fine the way you are. If you’re happy with your life and comfortable with who you are, then more power to you! I’m pretty sure you also know that people who are quick to label are usually unhappy about their own lives.

Being comfortable in your own skin means that you’re unapologetic about how you live your life. If you like to wear flip flops year-round, good for you. If you like to keep to yourself, there’s nothing wrong with that. You probably know that already. You’ve also probably heard countless friends or family members call you weird for doing things outside of their norm. It can be tough, but just ignore them and do what makes you happy.

Don’t Shadow Other People’s Lives

It’s okay to be unique. I know sometimes it is advisable to have role models and people we hold in high esteem. It’s okay to be inspired by them, but don’t ever feel like you need to copy their lifestyles and make them your own. To grow as individual you have to experience life on your own terms. But this can’t happen if you’re trying to be someone else.

Seriously, It Doesn’t Matter What They Think

Like I said, it is a dangerous world we live in. But in order to live a life you’ll be proud of, you need to stop caring about what people think of you. No matter the skin type or body type or gender you are, you are special and you matter. It is the first motto you should live by. You’re in charge of your life and letting other people decide everything for you is just going to ruin any chance you have in discovering and embracing yourself.

#GoodVibesOnly

This might be a little bit underrated but it’s true that the things and people who surround us influence our behavior and lifestyle. So surround yourself with people you can trust, people who care about your mental health and people who want to see you grow comfortable and flourish in your own being.

Can an Open Cap be Parted Down the Middle?

Email from a client asking if Ocean by Estetica can be parted down the middle:

“Can you please tell me if the Estetica ocean wig can be parted down the middle?”

Great question! Since Ocean by Estetica has an open cap it is able to be parted down the middle or in any direction, but you may run into an issue of the wefts showing due to this style being an open cap.

The best wigs that will give you a more natural part will be styles that have a mono-top. The mono-top allows for the wig to be parted in any direction. Mono-parts also give you a natural part, but since the part is built in, you really can’t manipulate it from the side that it is parted on.
