Hair has a lot to do with being feminine. Proper maintained hair and styling will make anyone look more stylish and pretty. So a crossdresser must have beautiful hair/wigs/extensions as well as proper styling. Having a hair wig collection offers a lot for different events.
Learn to take care and style your hair in a regular basis in as feminine manner as possible. Even if you’ve grown out your own hair, a wig or hairpiece is a great way to transform your look and add some instant glam.
Human Hair vs. Synthetic Hair vs. Blended Hair
Whether you go for a wig, hairpiece, or hair extensions, the first thing you need to do is choose between human hair, synthetic hair, or blended hair.
Human Hair Wigs
Human hair is the best option if you can afford it. It looks ultra natural and can be cut, styled, permed, or colored just like your own hair. The downside is that human hair wigs cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Another drawback is that human hair tends to be heavier than synthetic hair and requires more styling.
Synthetic Hair Wigs
Synthetic hair is cheaper than human hair, so it’s a great option if you want to build a big wardrobe of crossdresser wigs and hairpieces. High quality synthetic hair is virtually undetectable from human hair.
Other advantages of synthetic wigs are that they come pre-styled and are lighter than human hair wigs. The disadvantage is that you can’t heat-style most synthetic hair. (Though you can now find heat-resistant synthetic wigs and hairpieces on the market.) Synthetic hair also has a limited lifespan of 3-6 months of daily wear.
Blended Hair Wigs
Blended hair consists of a blend of human hair and synthetic hair and offers the best of both worlds: It’s less expensive than human hair and looks more natural than synthetic hair. It can also be heat-styled.
When it comes to wigs, the big differentiator (aside from hair fiber, style, and color) is the cap construction. Here are your wig cap options:
1. Full lace wigs
Full lace wigs are also called 100% hand-tied wig. The entire cap, back and sides, front, and crown, are all hand tied, guaranteeing that no matter how you style your wig it look natural. Each strand of hair is sewn individually onto a mesh cap using a hand-knotting technique.
2. 360 Lace wigs
360 Lace wigs are half machine made and half hand tied wigs. They are completely designed with a sheer lace around the whole hairline from the beginning to the end attached to the circle of the wig. Which makes it looks as if the wig hair is growing from your own scalp.
3. Lace front wigs
Lace front wigs are one of the most natural looking wig cap construction types available. Lace front wigs are half machine made and half hand tied wigs, the temple-to-temple part of the lace front wig is made of lace, you could style the lace part hair in any way you want. An undetectable sheer lace front to your wig will create a natural looking hairline.
4. Lace Wigs
Lace Wigs are wigs whose hair is partially hand tied – usually around the crown and the part – and not in other areas. The other areas of the cap are machine tied and, unfortunately, you can’t part the wig in the areas that are machine tied.
5.Traditional Weft Wigs
There are four alternate names for traditional weft caps: basic wig cap, open weft cap, standard cap, and classic cap.
The hair of traditional weft caps is machine sewed into strips of material (cotton, felt, velvet, silk, or otherwise). These strips are wefted together (woven like a basket) to create the appearance of natural hair growing in different directions.
Now let’s talk hair extensions. Hair extensions are a huge craze right now and it seems like every Hollywood stars has them. Hair extensions add length and fullness to your hair – but keep in mind that your hair has to be thick enough to hide the base of the hair extensions.
Hair extensions don’t work well with thinning hair or a receding hairline. (You’re better off with a full wig or a wiglet.)
Here are the most common types of hair extensions:
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions are fast, fun, and easy. The extensions are attached with clips and can be worn all day and all night.
Pre Bonded hair extensions
If you are looking for more permanent extensions, Pre bonded hair extensions are the most popular option. Pre bonded hair extensions are attached with a special type of glue and last 3-6 weeks before needing to be reattached.
You can appear very girly and feminine with a good hair styling instantly.
