“I was at a point where I was ready to say I am what I am and if you like me I’m grateful, and if you don’t, what am I going to do about it?”
– Anne Bancroft
On the hair envy front, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, Ciara, Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton and Tyra Banks could all be categorized into a box I would happily label, “Give me your damn hair“.
Makes it quite shocking to know that their hair isn’t real, doesn’t it? No, I’m not talking about extensions (which are all so common now I have spotted tracks on 12-year-olds), but lace wigs.
A lace wig is one of the most natural looking ‘hair systems’ on the market. This isn’t your 10-dollar party wig (the kind designed to last 5 minutes…tops). Basically, a lace wig is made by using a fine lace material as the base/scalp, then tying individual human hairs onto the lace. The term ‘full lace’ denotes that the base cap is made fully of lace, while ‘lace front’ wigs have lace in front and different materials at the back of the cap. Once custom-made, the wig is then attached with a special glue (strong, but harmless), pins, clips, or special tape. No damage!
The reason celebrities wear them? The easygoing luxury of it all! Not only can you get top-quality hair the second you wake up, but you can change colour, length and texture without any damage to your own strands! The versatility is astounding. Also, with your “cheap wigs” you often get shedding and no ability to tie your hair up or expose the nape of your neck without seeing the wig. Lace technology makes it look no different to a normal hairline. Undetectable.
I found out about lace wigs through my close friend’s Mom, who recently launched a lace wig store. The amazing thing is, I have adored both my friend and her mother’s hair for some time and have never doubted that so much as an extension had gone into their hair! They are just the sort of beautiful, polished women who seem as though they’ve just stepped off of a movie set every day. I suggest you take a look at their new website for inspiration and more of an insight into the world of celebrity-perfect hair! Be ahead of the trend.
The shoot, for the label’s “core values” campain, was shot last week in Siem Reap, Cambodia; where she adopted her son, Maddox. It is also exactly where I am travelling – not quite as glamourously – for an adventure/visa run next week (oh, the fame!). The ads have previously featured Sofia Coppola, Sean Connery, Bono and more, and are always photographed by the incredible Annie Leibovitz.
Rihanna has joined the wax figure ranks of George Washington, Barack Obama, Tyra Banks, Angelina Jolie, and more at Madame Tussaud‘s Washington, D.C., location. She is even her new pose-pal for her Twitter profile picture.
As a nod to one of the singer’s favorite designers, the Rihanna replica rocks the all-black Balmain ensemble – lace corset, shoulder-padded blazer, and harem pants – she wore to the designer’s runway show during Spring 2010 Paris Fashion Week. Besides her signature blond Mohawk and smoky eyes, the singer wears a bevy of bling, including a diamond brooch, a large gold-and-diamond ring, giant diamond earrings, and a tennis bracelet. One thing is is missing is her that is grammatically incorrect neck tattoo, “rebelle fleur“.
“It’s not my choice,” she said of Shiloh’s wardrobe, which includes polo shirts, cargo pants, hoodies, and boys’ swim trunks. “I have a very strong-willed four-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is.” View Post
