Best Synthetic Hair For Your Favourite Hairstyles

Best Synthetic Hair For Your Favourite Hairstyles

There was a time when synthetic hair was thought of as poor quality and disregarded in favour of human hair. Not anymore. Over recent years, the quality of synthetic hair has jumped significantly while prices stayed relatively affordable when compared to human hair; a combination that has also raised the popularity of synthetic hair. Now, wig-lovers all over the world are slowly integrating more synthetic wigs, extensions and hair pieces into their beauty wardrobes. Read as we cover the best types of synthetic hair for your style needs and where to find them. 

Braiding Hair 

You can't talk about braiding hair without discussing the brand Xpression. Their range of Kanekalon hair is specifically designed for classic braided styles like braids and cornrows and is well loved among the Black community in particular. While they're easily accessible and a reliable go-to for all your braiding needs, the colour selection may not serve every one.

If you're the type of person who loves to experiment with bright and bold hair colours but also love wearing braids, try Catface Hair. Specialising in offering a varied range of single and multi-coloured hair, their selection of braiding hair is bound to bring you joy if you like bringing a bit of a twist to your regular look.

Like classic braiding hair, Catface Hair can be dipped in hot water to seal the ends and can even be curled on low heat. They also offer a selection of Marley hair and faux locs. We especially can't get over these rainbow faux locs!

The rise in the quality of synthetic hair over the years has opened a whole new world when it comes to wigs. Gone are the days of the stiff, church aunty wigs most of us associated with synthetic wigs and instead, we've got synthetic wigs that can even rival their human hair counterparts. 

If you love on-trend wigs, Outre is a brand that can't be missed. With a tagline of 'Beautiful Hair for All', Outre and their line of varied and fashionable wigs really deliver. Whether you're looking for a fully-constructed full lace wig or you prefer buying bundles to allow you (or your wig stylist) to create your ideal style, Outre offer a range of hair colours, lengths and textures.

Some synthetic wigs can even be dyed, giving you even more opportunities when it comes to making your hair style truly reflective of you and your style.

The Wig Fix by The Renatural is a silicone hair gripper designed to keep wigs firmly on with rollercoaster-proof wig security all whilst protecting your edges.

Hair Pieces 

Maybe you just like adding some extra volume or length to your hair or you like to save the extensions for special occasions or one-off styles. Either way, hair pieces are a great way to add some further interest to your hairstyles. Synthetic hair is great for this especially if you're going for something like a 90s-inspired high pony as synthetic hair more or less keeps its style over its lifespan–perfect for those events when you need a quick-fix hairstyles. Lullabellz in particular have a piece just like this made from premium synthetic fibre.

The Mini Grande (three guesses which starlet inspired known for her high ponies inspired this name) is available in a range of shades for an effortless look at an affordable price point.
