Step 1 - Selecting your Human Hair Type

We pride ourselves in selling only the finest quality, ethically sourced human hair.

At The Beautiful Hair Boutique we offer two grades of stunning human hair and we pride ourselves in stocking ONLY the very finest quality human hair wigs,

and all of our wigs are made ONLY from ethically sourced human hair.

What is Virgin European Hair?

Virgin European hair is the highest quality, most beautifully soft hair available on the market. Why? Because it has never been processed or coloured, it has been left in its natural colour and texture. This hair is soft and fine and will move like your real hair. At the Beautiful Hair Boutique we pride ourselves in offering you the absolute best hair available in the world, we do this through our range of Virgin European wigs, topettes and other hair pieces.

What is Remy Human Hair?

Remy human hair will often be a blend of European and Mongolian hair and may also come from mixed donors. Remy human hair is naturally dark in colour and as such needs to be bleached and dyed to create an assortment of colors to match Caucasian hair colors. Our Processed Remy human hair wigs are at more affordable price point for those who would like human hair but cannot afford the price tag of our Virgin European Hair. At the Beautiful Hair Boutique we source the very best quality and ethically sourced Remy human hair for our wigs and hairpieces.

How does Virgin European Hair differ from Remy Human Hair?

Virgin European hair is the most beautiful hair available and primarily differs from processed Remy human hair as it is naturally fine and soft in texture, as opposed to remi hair which can be slightly more coarse. 100% Virgin European hair has never been put through any chemicals or conditioners. However, with all of our Human Hair wigs the cuticles are all left intact making all the hair aligned in one direction, and will also mean less tangling with the hair on the wig.

Virgin hair will also retain its stunning shine and soft texture wash after wash.

Step 2 - Selecting your Hair Colour

Our Human Hair Wigs are available in a huge range of gorgeous hair colours.

Our Virgin European Hair colours are 100% natural and have been cut directly from the donor’s ponytail. Our Processed Remy Human Hair has been coloured and coated to reach the desired colour.

Step 3 - Selecting your Wig Cap

Not everyone’s head is the same size, and not everyone has the same degree of hair loss so it is important to take the time to select the right type of wig cap for you, to ensure the wig is secure and comfortable on your head. All of our wig caps are adjustable and can be tightened if necessary. We recommend you go with a cap size that is slightly on the tighter side to allow room for it to stretch, as your body heat will naturally allow the cap to expand.

The Standard Close Wefted Cap

Suitable for women with women and children with Alopecia or wearing a wig as a result of cancer. This wig cap has a snug fit, can be adjusted and is lightweight. The cap has a natural skin top, that beautifully resembles your natural scalp which also allows for a multi-directional part so you can style this wig completely to suit you. This cap can come with or without, pins and clips to be secured to hair underneath if this is on the scalp.

From the crown of the head to the nape, there is a single piece of stretch material with wefts sewn horizontally across from ear to ear. This cap has a snugger fit and because the single piece of material is completely closed to the head, it prevents hair from the head from coming through.

The Silicone - Gripper Cap

Suitable for women with women and children with complete hair loss, such as Alopecia Totalis or Alopecia Universalis as the wig has strips of silicone which grip to the scalp.

The silicone gripper wig is also suitable for those who have lost all the hair on their scalp as a result of cancer. This wig cap has a very snug fit, can be adjusted. The cap has a natural skin top, that beautifully resembles your natural scalp which also allows for a multi-directional part so you can style this wig completely to suit you. The silicone gripper wig is suitable for those with an active lifestyle as it can be worn exercising, swimming, etc

The Open Wefted Cap

Suitable for those with partial hair loss or people looking for a wig that has greater ventilation.

The open wefted wig cap has a natural skin top, that beautifully resembles your natural scalp which also allows for a multi-directional part so you can style this wig completely to suit you. From the crown to the nape, there are many wefts (rows of hair) sewn horizontally across from ear to ear. The area between each weft is open so the cap does not feel as tight on the head. When pinning a wig up, the open wefts allow the pins to go through the cap and be fastened to the hair growing from the head, which assures a firmer hold. The open wefts also allow more ventilation to the scalp. This is also known as an open wig cap.

100% Hand Tied Lace Caps

Suitable for women who experience scalp sensitivity and those looking for a 100% lace hand made wig.

Hand-Tied caps are made with each individual hair strand being hand-knotted on the cap. The hand tied lace wig cap provides a comfortable fit. The lace caps also allow for a natural feel as the hair appears to grow naturally from your scalp. Hand tied caps are very delicate and less durable than a closed wefted option and may require more maintenance. The hand tied cap may also stretch more easily and may require alterations over time.

Step 3 - Selecting your Hairline

One of the biggest concerns women have when it comes to wearing a wig, is how natural will the hair line look, which is why we have a range of hair line options to suit different looks. The lace front has received the most media attention recently as celebrities in the US have taken to wearing lace front wigs. Although this isn’t always suitable for everyone, as the lace is very delicate and doesn’t tend to last as long.

Step 4 - Selecting your Hair Length

The up side to wearing a wig is you don’t have to wait years for your hair to grow, and overnight you can have the luscious long locks you have always desired OR you can recreate your look with a bob. The options are endless. All of our beautiful human hair wigs are customised to suit the length you desire, and you can enjoy hair as long as 30” long!

Step 5 - Selecting your Wig Cap Size

It is important for us to make sure our consultants correctly fit the cap so it is snug on your head. Our flagship Sydney salon has a range of wig sizes in stock, and we also have wig sizing caps to ensure you get the correct size. If you are unable to make it into the salon, you can measure your own head using our detailed sizing instructions.

How do I get my Human Hair Wig cut and styled once it arrives?

Once your perfect combination has arrived, we will book you in for a cut and style consultation with our team of highly experienced human hair wig hair stylists. Our stylists have been working with wigs for over a decade and take the time to sit with you to understand exactly how you would like your wig styled so it is cut in to suit your face.

If you are unable to make it to Sydney, we still have you covered! Our in house stylists will happily call your local hairdresser to ensure they know how to work with your wig, to make sure it is perfectly cut for you! Or, we can do a Skype hair styling consultation so we can cut the wig in for you prior to sending this out to you.
