Updating Your Makeup for Fall

To me, fall is the most beautiful season of the year. During this amazing time, I love to travel to a nearby mountain town in order to look at the colorful leaves on the trees. Besides shopping for new clothes, I also strive to update my makeup when the weather gets cooler outdoors. I prefer wearing pastel colors of makeup such as pink, peach, and lavender during the spring and summer months. However, when fall arrives, I like to start wearing darker, richer shades of color such as red, burgundy, and amethyst. These darker shades of makeup complement the black, chocolate brown, and gray colors of fall clothing in my closet. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart tips to help you update your makeup collection for fall. Enjoy!

How To Wash Your Wig

Beauty & Fashion Blog

Wigs, much like your real hair, will get dirty, can get oily from touching it and can get a smell to it depending on what you have been around (such as smoke). You would wash your real hair, so you should wash your wig as well to remove the built up dirt, oil and smells. Unlike your real hair though, the hair on your wig won't grow back, so it's important to be gentle with it. Follow the instructions below to wash your wig.

Here's What You'll Need:

  • Bowl
  • Warm and cold water
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • De-tangler
  • Towel
  • Wig rack
  • Comb or brush


  1. Add warm water to a bowl big enough to fit your wig into and to move it around without the water spilling over. Work your wig around a bit to get it wet and to prepare it for shampooing.
  2. Pour only about a teaspoon of gentle shampoo into your hand and work it into the wig very gently. Work the shampoo into the wig so it's nice and soapy.
  3. Next, remove the wig from the soapy water and squeeze out the excess shampoo, being careful not to damage any of the fibers.
  4. Once you have most of the shampoo squeezed out, rinse the bowl out and pour cold water into the bowl. Place the wig into the bowl and swish it around to help remove the shampoo.
  5. Add a teaspoon of conditioner to your hand and work it into the wig again, very gently so you don't damage it.
  6. Rinse it in cool water to remove all of the conditioner.
  7. Next, gently squeeze out the water and blot it with a towel to help get rid of any more excess water. Be sure not to use a hair dryer, as you can damage the hair fibers.
  8. Finally, comb through the hair using a de-tangler to help get rid of knots and tangles. Attempting to pull at the knots using a comb or a brush can pull the hair fibers out and damage the wig. When the wig is nearly dry, you can comb it a specific direction to help create a part or a style.

Read the manufacturer's directions on other styling tips for your wig and to see which products are best to use. Synthetic and natural hair wigs will have different care instructions. Be sure to be gentle with your wig when cleaning or styling and try to avoid using heat to style or dry it.
