Hair loss or Crowning glory – Men’s Hair Systems

Toupee-Adv

Hair loss is one of the biggest worries thousands of both men and woman have. It can take your confidence and self esteem. It can start at a very young age and cause depression in lots of cases. It doesn’t matter how much you have paid for your beautiful clothes or jewellery, if your hair is a mess, for whatever reason, then you feel a mess. So having a good head of hair is your right to your Crowning Glory and very important to everyone and there are many things that you can now do to achieve it.

We at Wig-O-Mania do not recommend various forms of none surgical grafts for hot countries as the graft has to be glued to the entire bald area of the scalp, using a silicone or similar type based glue. Thus not allowing the scalp to breath and so it can become very hot and uncomfortable for the customer. It can also feel very tight and uncomfortable. All this can cause problems for the supplier when complaints start rolling in.

Not all clients are suitable for none surgical grafts anyway. For example anyone with any kind of damage to the scalp i.e. scratches, spots, irritation, dandruff, dermatitis, psoriasis or any open wound, no matter how small can not have it done.

Toupees are a much better Business option, giving the least problems for the client and the supplier. Our Toupees come in a variety of bases (foundations) and are made in our factory with the finest quality products on the market today.

The most popular base for hot countries is the monofilament base which allows the scalp to breath. The monofilament is a finely woven, see through base, onto which each individual hair is hand knotted. This gives the appearance of hair growing from a natural scalp.   Because the monofilament is see through you can see the actual clients scalp through it, giving the most natural appearance when in place.

The base usually has a p.u. perimeter around the edge to which the client can attach double sided tape or clips. Whichever is most suitable for the client. If the client has just thinning hair then tape should not be used as removal would be very painful. In this case then Toupee clips should be attached. Once the toupee has been fitted it can be cut and styled to suit the customer’s head.

Our Toupees are made with the finest quality human hair and come in a variety of colours. The most popular colours for the Asian market are 1B (natural black), 2 (Dark brown) 4 (Dark warm brown.) So holding stock  is quite easy in comparison to the European market where many, many colours have to be stocked.

 

Hairstyle Trends for Spring & Summer 2017

http://www.beautytipsonline.com/hair_trends_summer.htm

So what’s gonna be hot for hair when the weather turns warmer? The new hairstyle trends for spring and summer, 2009, characterize a variety of styles that will flatter hair of any length, whether it’s short, long or in-between.

There’s something for everyone! Looking for change? Get a haircut that allows you to wear a practical style for daytime and a more flirty look for the evening hours.

Long Hairstyles

Wavy, textured hair brings a tousled, feminine look. If your hair is long and thick, this is easy to achieve because textured and shaped hair allows you more control with your hair style. Simply wash your hair, add some mousse and blow dry your hair on low. Use a curling iron and finger-comb the layers. For piecey chunks, apply styling wax on the ends to separate.

For a simple, sleek and smooth look, straight hair can look great on almost anyone, reflecting light and enhancing shine. If you have natural waves, you don’t need to blow-dry. Simply use a flat iron to straighten it out section by section after you let it air dry. Set the style with hair spray and stay away from rain or heavy humidity.

Short Hair

Want less fuss with a short hairstyle? Ask your stylist for heavy layers to add dimension, fullness, and bounce. Boyish, yet feminine, this is the easiest cut to wash and style. If you prefer more than a basic bob, look for an asymmetrical cut to update your look and keep you on the edge.

Ringlets that are too tight look old-fashioned and Victorian. Keep your short curls loose and natural. Finger comb and tousle your tresses when slightly wet for a true romantic look. Face-framing layers will help make a basic hairstyle more versatile and add much needed movement.

Whatever your hair length, this year’s parts are leaning towards the center. What looks best on you may depend on the shape of your head, if you have bangs, and if they will also part to reveal a portion of your forehead. If you prefer a side part, forgo the center and wear it where you wish. Not every trend looks good on everyone.

Bangs

The current trend for bangs is soft and side-swept, exposing only part of your forehead. To look anything but ordinary, opt for angled bangs to accentuate your unique style. Whilst bangs require more frequent maintenance, they’re great for covering up a long forehead, flaws, or lines.

Ponytails are back in a big way. With their practicality, getting ready for a casual or formal event is a snap. Soft waves add sensuality to a basic ponytail. For any texture of hair, set high or low, what’s classic is now trendy. Try combing your hair back with your fingers for a slightly imperfect, messed-up hairdo.

Color & Highlights Trends

Sexy, feminine highlights are always in style. Chunky highlights give way to subtle. Spring brings popular multi-tone highlights and lowlights for several shades of color that adds dimension and reflects the light. A great haircut combined with delicate highlights ensure that you will look classy at special events and in pictures. Trendy and stylish, this summer promises to bring some of the most exciting hairstyles we’ve seen in years. What better time is there to update your tresses?

WHY BLEACHED HAIR GOES GREEN

Colouring is a very difficult  and specialised job and a test strand should always be done before a full colouring is attempted to avoid any major colour disasters.

When hair is bleached it removes the hairs natural pigment.  This is done in varying degrees depending on the type of hair initially.  Also the product used will affect the degree of colour pigment removed. The strength of peroxide, plus the type of product used will also determine how blonde it will lift.

Very dark strong hair will first go orange and will require re-bleaching.  The next degree will be golden blonde.  Then  the next bleaching  will lift it to pale blonde.  The more times you bleach your hair the more damage is caused to the hair structure.

Because bleached hair becomes much more porous, if you go into a swimming pool your hair can absorb the chlorine and turn it green.

Some scientific research also states that the presence of copper sulphate in water can turn blonde hair green.  This will also affect black, all shades of brown and red heads but because the blonde has no natural pigment left in it,  it shows.

Also if you have bleached hair and decide to darken it, if all the natural hair pigment has been removed to a pale blonde shade, the hair can become a green shade especially if an ash tone is used, because all the natural red tones have been removed.  Your colour choice should contain some red tones to reduce the possibility of your hair turning green. Powder bleach is the strongest cosmetic bleach but can spoil the natural lustre of the hair.   If this is used with 40% peroxide it will give the highest lift but should not be applied to the scalp as it could burn it. This should only be used with a streaking cap to protect the scalp for highlights. It can also be detrimental to the hair.

Some hairdressers will even use 60% peroxide for speed to achieve the lift quicker, but this can cause the hair to burn or become very brittle and straw like and can be dangerous not only for the hair and scalp but it can also cause blindness from the vapours.

Hair that is used for extensions can be Indian or East European Hair.  East European hair is very strong and it takes a lot of bleaching to lift the colour.  In many of the factories it is industrial chemicals that are used to lift the colour and then they dye it  to the required shade.  Therefore  always remember that this hair has gone through many chemical processes before you receive it and this should always be taken into consideration before applying colour.

Remember to always do a strand test beforehand to check the result will be what you want.

It boasts of an absolutely exclusive range of Hair Extensions, Synthetic Asian and Euro Wigs, Human Hair Wigs and all the major accessories that go with them.

It prides of a team with a vast wealth of resources in terms of knowledge and experience in all areas related to its business within the Core Management Team.

Whether it is for a personal use, a social occasion, catwalk show or even a magazine shoot – our versatile and durable styles is aimed at creating a variety of stunning looks with that added sophistication. Wig-O-Mania will strive continuously to ensure our Customers do not buy because they are being marketed to or sold to, instead they buy because we will help them realize the merits of owning what we offer.

With the help and support of UK Trade & Investment – London and Mumbai office, Wig-O-Mania has conducted a comprehensive market research into the Hair and Wigs Industry in the region with a special focus on Mumbai & Delhi. There are two broad segments of the market that its products can be of value – namely Fashion and Necessity Wearers.

It has realised that the most urgent and alarmingly neglected segment are the Necessity Wearers. These include but not limited to those girls and ladies within the age bracket of 15 to 60 who suffer from Hair Loss. Needless to say that Hair on the head is considered a lady’s ‘crown & glory’ and hence for whatever reason if they begin to lose it, the psychological effect it has on her self-esteem and confidence is beyond words. The most common cause of Hair Loss is Alopecia and temporary loss of hair due to Cancer treatment – Chemo Therapy.

Wig-O-Mania’s Wigs are specially designed to cater to the Indian Market with special emphasis on the Necessary Wearers. The focus is presently on those girls and ladies who undergo Chemo Treatment and are told that among the many side effects it will have, one would be an immediate hair loss. Our Products also cater to ladies who are tormented by hair thinning or Alopecia resulting in patches of baldness on the head. Our Synthetic Wigs are made from the high end fibre which not only looks but also feels like natural hair. We also promote a special type of fibre that is as versatile as Human Hair and hence one can curl, straighten and style it too up to 180 degrees heat. Its maintenance is simply and easy and they can be washed and cleansed too with a normal shampoo. Wigs are now easy and comfortable to wear as they come with a Velcro band, which helps to secure it on one’s head. Hence the age-old fear that it would blow away remains only a myth.

Wearing a Wig-O-Mania Branded Wig is almost like cosmetic surgery for your hair without the pain or the cost.

The stigma has disappeared in the West – UK, Europe, USA about wearing a wig. Wigs were once so obvious that they would be noticed a mile away and hence people were embarrassed. Today with the latest technique and near human hair type look and feel of the fibre used, a person could be stood right next to you and could even be touching your hair and they would not know.

Wig-O-Mania have in its team professionals that have the knowledge and expertise of over 4 decades to answer to all questions that may arise in one’s mind pertaining to Wigs and Hair Pieces. It has realized that people with Cancer are more traumatized by the loss of their hair than being told they have cancer. One of the first questions anyone asks the doctor when they are told about having to undergo Chemo therapy is “will I lose my hair?” The answer in most cases is ‘Yes’ unfortunately.

In UK and Europe, these ladies will seek out a wig before they loose their hair so when the dreaded day comes they can begin wearing their wig and this avoids them having to go through the embarrassment of being seen without their hair. In India such a facility has not been available until now and therefore Wig-O-Mania is now embarked on assisting a handful of companies to offer it directly to the end user.

Wig-O-Mania also proposes to provide a Q&A facility via emails to its HO in United Kingdom where the same will be answered by its panel of experts and could advice on anything pertaining to Hair Pieces.

Intro of Luscious Locks Skin Wefts of Wig-O-Mania by Celebrity Hair Stylist Manzoor Khan

At the 150 salon launch of Naturals, an Exclusive Tie-up was announced between Naturals and Wig-O-Mania of London.
Celebrity Hair Stylist Manzoor Khan from Mumbai graced the occasion and agreed to do a live demo of his favourite Extension which he has been using since more than a year on his clients. He demonstrated not only the convenience of using such semi permanent Human Hair Extensions but also the speed at which it can be done – he completed it is less than 8 minutes.

Its all about you…..no excuses here!!!

One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written:
“Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym”.

In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!”.

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.

There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said:

“There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.
You are the only person who can revolutionize your life.
You are the only person who can influence your happiness,
your realization and your success.
You are the only person who can help yourself.


Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life.

“The most important relationship you can have, is the one you have with yourself” . Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality.

The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed.

The world and your reality are like mirrors laying in a coffin, which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success.

It’s the way you face Life that makes the difference!!!

PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week kicks off in Karachi

http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2011\10\22\story_22-10-2011_pg9_17

October 20, 2011, saw the start of the fourth instalment of the Pakistan Fashion Design Council (PFDC) Sunsilk Fashion Week in Pakistan. Indeed this time, the PFDC and Sunsilk took their week of fashion further to a bigger business platform teaming up with Expo Pakistan, in collaboration with the TDAP whereby PFDC Sunsilk Fashion week is being held in parallel to the trade event.

Day 1 of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week was structured into 2 acts, which featured 3 ramp shows each with 5 distinct designers and a show by the students of the PIFD.

Act 1

It was attended by leading media and fashion personalities, journalists and buyers who had flown in to attend Expo Pakistan.

Act 1 of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2010 was opened by Maria B and her womenswear prêt-à-porter collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Neo Natives”. The designer drew her inspiration from ancient world cultures from Aztec to Persia to fuse a global identity for the women of today. Through this collection the designer looked to project a world that is full of love, acceptance and respect for each other’s cultures and identities. Indeed “Neo Natives” speak for the urban women of today, world travellers confident in their identities and capabilities. Talking about her brand and collection, the designer said, “It is Internationally relevant and affordable fashion for the modern Pakistani woman”. Renowned television host Shaista Wahidi and designers Yousaf Bashir Qureshi and Rizwanullah walked the ramp for the designer.

Act 1’s second show belonged to the debut collection of young designer Zonia. Her menswear and womenswear collection was titled “Aurora Luminescence – The Glowing Murk” which was inspired by an amalgamation of two tremendous natural wonders to achieve a manmade termination in the form of experimental garments, which are a concoction of colour inspiration from Aurora waves and the silhouettes are attained by focusing on bioluminescent mushrooms which are ruffled, frill yet composed. The attributes of all garments differ in light and dark.

The collection utilised unique and unusual fabrics combined with a white luminous fabric which glowed in blue or green focusing mainly on the lustre and drape of the fabric. Garments were without any embroidery but includes soft ruffles, J shaped cut lines, layering and white piping while white trims and white glow in the dark thread. On her debut and design aesthetic the designer said ““I believe in following my own pace, my own instincts and trust that no matter what I will get it right!…my designs are for people who love details, are confident, smart and desirable”

Next on the runway was Karachi-based designer Zaheer Abbas with his womenswear collection for the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Myth”. For this collection Abbas had drawn inspiration from elements of art and architecture along with Roman sculptures influenced by ‘wet drapery’, a term used by art historians to describe cloth that appears to cling to the body in animated folds while it reveals the contours of the form beneath. Based in pure chiffon, the collection carried motifs such as pillars, vases and acanthus leaf embroidered in antique gold and copper, creating a true synthesis of inventiveness and practicality.

Zaheer Abbas’ inspirations were driven from East to West and from history to the future. For his second showing at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, Abbas went back in time; from classical statuary to modern dresses for his Spring/Summer collection. About his collection the designer said “Through the centuries, art and fashion have achieved their own transformations, Roman sculptures and their drapery is one example that creates a spectacular synthesis for which not many words are needed, the beauty speaks for itself”

Act 2

Opening for Day 1’s Act 2 was the Karachi based designer Nida Azwer with her womenswear collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week entitled “Foliaceous” which drew inspiration from the textures and hues that surround her. Based in a flowy silhouette using fabrics such as cottons, linens, silks and organza, the collection marked the designers’ foray into textures where she explored the textures of fresh leaves using traditional techniques such as cutwork accentuated with lace in the earthy tones of green and blue. Speaking about her participation at the week the designer said “Fashion weeks in Pakistan gives everyone the opportunity to collectively showcase their work on a national level. I’m very happy to support it and be a part of it.”

Next on the Karachi runway was the Pakistan Institute of Fashion Design [PIFD] where six students, Farwa Zaheer, Ridah Syed, Rubab Haider, Maryam Jaleel, Asma Iqbal, Komal Afridi, Safa Tariq and Saba Ijaz showcased their indiviual pieces and capsule collections.

The first day’s finale was by designer Akif showcasing his womenswear prêt-à-porter collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, “Mast Patang”, inspired by the Pakistani kite flying festival of Basant. His collection looked to capture the joyous nature and festivity of the occasion. In this collection he harked back to his childhood memory of congested old Lahore buildings where thousands of colourful kites were being flown from every rooftop.

“Mast Patang” was worked in a variety of fabrics such as velvet, linen, chiffon, viscose and cotton and engaged a vibrant colour palette including yellows, reds and oranges symbolising the rich colours of the kites themselves, along with the colour deep blue, indeed symbolic of the colour of the night in which these kites are flown. The designer presented French styled velvet jackets, jumpsuits inspired from the Far East and striking waistcoats all fused together with traditional Pakistani embroidery to create a collection representing Pakistan and its beautiful culture as manifest within the festival of Basant, to the rest of the world.
