Ciara

A changing season brings new styles and Jon Renau has introduced five new creations to mark Spring 2016.

The legendary wig maker says the new looks are inspired by the everyday woman; melding effortless natural grace with sophisticated trends.

We have Ciara -a headful of long, loose waves,Miranda – a smart cascade of long layers, Kaley- a short, whispy shag, Sandra- a sleek, long layered style and Top Wave- a clip in hairpiece of volumising, carefree waves.

Miranda Wig 12FS8

Miranda

Ciara, Miranda and Kaley are SmartLace, constructed with lace front hairlines, which create the illusion of natural hair growth.

Kaley-14/26S10

Kaley

The lightweight open cap construction of Kaley creates breezy wearability and cooling comfort.

Ciara, Miranda, Sandra and Top Wave all feature transparent monofilament, to which the individual strands are attached, providing virtually unlimited options for new looks through multidirectional stylability.

Sandra-6F27 Side

Sandra

 

In addition, Sandra has a 100-percent hand tied cap and a true-to-life natural feel and appearance, since the process of hand tying crafts an extraordinarily comfortable wig that moves like naturally growing hair.

 

This Spring Collection showcases the attention to detail and the high standards of the Individual Wig. We embrace the idea that beauty starts with happiness and empowerment and with these new styles, Jon Renau has achieved all that.

SAVE THE BOX

A few weeks ago, I was a among a group of very enthusiastic women who spent the day beating a box with a drum stick!

box

 

We were making a short video in support of a wonderful campaign to raise awareness and seek funds for research into cancers that few people think about.

They are gyneacological cancers – the cancers that effect women’s reproductive system. The campaign is a little provocative and is called ‘ Save the Box’. Fifteen women are diagnosed every day with cancers such as ovarian, uterine (often called endometrial), vulvar, vaginal and  cervical cancers.

Four women die every day.

This campaign by ANZGOG, The Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group, is aimed at highlighting the urgent need for more research to save lives and improve the outcomes for women with these cancers.

You can see the video and help the campaign by visiting the website www.savethebox.org.au

15 Years with LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER.

Look Good Feel BetterMany of my clients and women with cancer know of the outstanding work done by Look Good Feel Better, a charity dedicated to helping patients manage the appearance-related side-effects of cancer treatment.

I recently attended a Fundraising Gala to celebrate 25 years that the organisation has been carrying out its work in Australia.

In that time, more than 118,000 people have taken part in the workshops.

The soul of the program are the hundreds of volunteers from the cosmetic, beauty and hairdressing professions who help conduct the workshops but the heart of the program are those women undergoing cancer treatment.

For 15 of those 25 years, I have been fortunate to see the results of the workshops and I was honoured to receive a 15 Year Medallion at the Gala, which I wear with pride.

During those years I have worked with many wonderful volunteers and staff from Look Good Feel Better.  When participants tell us how much they are encouraged by our efforts, I know the workshops are achieving our mission – to help improve the well-being and confidence of people going through cancer treatment.

A wig transformation.

The Individual Wig featured on Channel Nine’s Weekend Today Show on Sunday 6th April. In a segment presented by fashion consultant, Henry Roth about quick and affordable ways to look younger, we put a wig on one of the women Henry brought to the studios.

Henry told host Leila McKinnon that he’d worked with The Individual Wig on Oxford Street to update and transform the look of his model, Joyce.

Henry showed a ‘before’ picture of Joyce and then presented her in an Anthea Crawford dress with the make-up by his  experts from the Roth Beauty Bar and wearing a beautiful new wig from The Individual Wig.
