Do you know how celebrities change their hairstyles from day to day? Their secret is wigs!

If you look at pictures of celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and supermodel Naomi Campbell you’ll often notice their styles will change drastically from one day to the next. They’ll be spotted with long hair on stage then at an event with short hair the very next day. But scissors aren’t involved as you’ll then see them a few days later and hey presto – not only will their long locks be back but they’ll have a new streak of colour.

Like trying a new lip colour or experimenting with a new nail varnish, wigs offer versatility and a chance to chop and change your style as quick as you like. Dream Girl’s Chic Collection offers a range of lace and elastic wigs that fit snugly over your natural hair and can help you transform your style in seconds. It’s perfect for the festive season when you’ve got plenty of glamorous nights to prepare for.

First you have to choose whether you want a wig made from 100% human hair or synthetic. Human hair looks more natural as it falls gently and keeps its style for longer. A synthetic wig will be less expensive and will look very natural, ideal for a one off occasion.

You need to choose the hairstyle or look you want to go for, it might be a short pixie crop or a longer length. You can also choose from a wide range of colours so you can select a style that closely matches your own colour or opt for a wig that’s in a bright or different shade for maximum impact.

Next you need to fit your wig. You can either do this at home or you might want to see a stylist and they can do it for you. You need to start by flattening your own natural hair. Any bums will affect how the hair on the wig sits and you want it to have as smooth a base as possible.

Comb your natural hair back and tie it. Use a wig cap as this with flatten your hair down. It will also help to keep the wig in place. Begin with the wig at the forehead and continue to fit to the nape of the neck. Arrange the hair strands so they’re falling correctly and you’re ready to go!

If you want your wig to stay in good shape then make sure you gently comb it without harsh over brushing. Over-brush your natural hair and it will break but grow back. That doesn’t happen with a wig. Use a stand to ensure the wig keeps its shape and doesn’t become distorted. Wash in warm water and use gentle products to clean any dirt and grease from your locks. Allow hair to dry completely before you make any attempt to style it. This isn’t your natural hair, you will damage the wig if you use heat while it;s wet.

Whether you want an afro, a bob or super long style a wig allows you to change your look in seconds. You can order directly from Dream Girl’s online store. Remember our shop closes down from Friday 19 December until Monday 5 January.
