South Austin, TX – October 2014


10.2014 - #8.3Wigs can be as much a part of a Halloween costume as masks, but what makes a good wig and should you care? Hair experts at one of the top beauty schools in South Austin say that a wig can be a good purchase that has multiple uses over the course of several Halloweens – or to just give the wearer a completely different look for any special occasion. However, there are various things to consider when shopping for a wig, especially if it is going to be used multiple times and in multiple styles.


10.2014 - #8.4Wigs are made from both synthetic materials and natural hair. Typical Halloween costume wigs found in most costume shops are made from synthetic hair. Synthetic wigs are pre-styled in particular hairstyles such as curly, braided, straight, etc. and must basically remain in that form since trying to alter them can severely damage the synthetic materials, making the wig look worn and unkempt very quickly. The better the quality of synthetic wigs, the more they are likely to cost. Synthetic wigs normally range in price anywhere between $5 to $50 and up.


10.2014 - #8.2Natural hair wigs are usually only available in professional wig stores or you can find good quality wigs through a beauty school in South Austin like Bella Beauty College. Wigs that utilize natural hair are also naturally more expensive than synthetic wigs and start at around $100. But they also offer a few important benefits. Natural hair wigs can be repeatedly restyled, creating multiple looks from the same wig. A visit to one of the better beauty schools in South Austin can provide a new style to an existing wig, ensuring that your style matches the occasion or the desired costume.


10.2014 - #8.1To those looking solely for a one-time look of a specific character, Bella Beauty College recommends the cheaper synthetic wigs that are used once and then thrown away. However, if someone wants more diversity from their wig, or wants to look their best for a high-end costume contest, then a wig made of natural hair and styled by experts may be the right choice. Bella Beauty College is a long-time beauty school in South Austin that can design and style any natural hair wig.

Currently, Bella Beauty College is offering a Halloween promotion – a wig style and Halloween makeup application starting at $15.  Good through October 31st.
