Expert Tip | Toupee Clips for Security

Own a convertible car? Like to walk on the beach? Feel like your wig is going to fly off in the wind?
 Here are some great tips - straight from The Wig Experts!

1) Try the Sure Grip by BeautiMark for lasting comfort and security.

2) Try sewing toupee clips into the fabric wefting of your wig (not a monofilament or hand-tied wig). If you know how to use a needle and thread, you can do this! Just be careful and gentle. This will add extra security by fastening the wig to your own hair, just like hair extensions do.

Wigs in Fashion | Kim Kardashian as a Blonde Barbie

Australian Kurv Magazine has the gorgeous Kim Kardashian gracing the latest issue’s cover and featured in an editorial. But she isn't playing 'Kim'... she's playing Barbie! The entire issue is devoted to all things Barbie - apparently she's even the guest editor!

"But Kim is not usually a blonde," you say. Many of her gorgeous looks were achieved using beautiful blonde wigs and extensions. She even dyed her raven-dark hair for the shoot! Kim is looking fierce as a modern and high fashion interpretation of Barbie. Some photos even have her posing with a very muscular Ken. 

Tony Duran - the photographer - said of the Barbie shoot, “What Barbie represents to me is a sort of a timeline of women in American history all packaged up in a bit over the top-almost unachievable figure. A bit of Jessica rabbit does the history channel! In my mind, Barbie is at best a blonde. So when the outrageously curvy Kim Kardashian called and said she was going blonde for the week, it was game on.”

 We agree, Tony. Kim was a great choice. Could this be the best she has ever looked? We think so!

Wigs on Screen | Angelia Jolie in SALT

Angelina Jolie doesn't just kick major ass in her latest movie SALT (which released over the weekend), she also experiments with wigs! In the film, Angie’s character Evelyn Salt is accused of being a Russian spy. To disguise herself, she trades her sweet blonde locks...
for a sexy European raven-haired look...
Any director will tell you that the easiest way to make this hair switch in the film biz is to use wigs. Changing and experimenting with your look can be that easy. For Salt’s long and straight with bangs style, try the Jaela wig by Tony of Beverly - both in blonde or a dark color.
