Dear Valued Guests,
We have some exciting news at HBWC! Beginning January 1st, we will be located in Suite 36 of the Alpine Village! We will be in the same building but different suite.
What does this mean?
We will still be providing our inventory of wigs, care products, and ostomy products just as we have in the past. We will now be including L'ANZA products that are safe to use not only on your own hair but also your wig!
Our store will be partnering with our salon The Melanie Rae Salon in order to better serve the needs of our guests. This means, we are able to cut, color, and style your wig or natural hair to ensure you achieve the look you desire!
We will have a private wig room as well as two salon booths where Bridget can ensure that your wig fits your style!
We appreciate your patience with us as we spend December moving. We will still be open at our current location (Suite 30) till the end of December. January 1st, we will be in our new location (Suite 36).
We hope to see everyone soon and we appreciate everyone's constant support!
Variety is Key
Sometimes when we wear our wigs, we feel stuck in a one style rut. Bridget took two of our longer styles and put them into pony tails. She has also taken our Determined wig and styled it into 4 different styles (as shown in the blog post before). Wigs do not have to be a one style and done look. If you are struggling to style your wig, Bridget is available to help! She can style your wig as a service or walk through how to do a hair style with you in the store! Do you have a special occasion approaching? Bridget and style your wig!
Styling 1 Wig 4 Ways
Having the option to change your style is always a plus when wearing a wig! The base type is critical when choosing a wig if you want to be able to style your hair system differently daily or weekly. If you purchase a mono part cap, your wig has a part designed in the cap and cannot be changed. Most other tops have the ability to change parts. If you have questions about what type of top will work best for the style your are wanting to achieve then speak with one of our CARE specialists!
Above is our Determined wig styled four ways! It is a lace front mono top which allows you to part anywhere! The colors from left to right are: Ginger Cream, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Chocolate Caramel.
Drying Your Wig with a Blow Dry Stand
This is a video on how to prepare your wig for drying with a hair dryer if necessary. It is ideal to air dry your wig, however if a blow dryer is necessary, then use wig preparation products. If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 406-702-1148!
Washing Your Wig
Washing your wig for the first time can be scary and unfamiliar. Bridget does an amazing job walking through how to properly wash you wig to ensure a long life of wear. If you have any questions about how to wash your wig, give us a call! 406-702-1148
How to Apply Your Wig
At Hair Because We Care, we strive to educate our clients. Purchasing a wig for the first time may be overwhelming and it is difficult to remember every piece of information you receive. We have begun to create helpful how to videos in the hopes that our clients can work with their hair system as stress free as possible. Here is the first video on how to apply your wig without any adhesives. Still have questions? Call us at 406-702-1148!
Summer has arrived!
Warm weather is upon us and so is the heat. Wearing a wig during the summer can be warm on the scalp. It helps to wear a wig with a lace base which allows more airflow to the scalp. If your scalp becomes itchy or has a rash, that may be due to the heat and dust that increases during the hot summer months. It is important to continue great care for your wig. Regular shampooing and conditioning helps to remove dirt, dust, and sweat from the base of the scalp at the roots.
Here are a few tips to keep you feeling comfortable all summer long:
If you are struggling to find what will work for you, call or stop in and see Bridget about the options!
No more bad hair days!
Are you tired of having frustrating hair days? I struggle with achieving perfect curls everyday with my own hair and when this happens, I use a pre-styled wig that always has the right amount of curl. I have very thin hair with little volume even after I use a round brush. To help with my lack of hair, I use extensions to add thickness to my style. Wigs and hair extensions truly allow for an easy versatile look even on those bad hair days. If you are finding that you struggle with bad hair days, stop in and see us today to see how we can help you achieve no more bad hair days!
New Wigs for the New Year!
New pre-styled wigs have arrived at Hair Because We Care! At the end of the new year, we are all looking to transform ourselves. These looks take on a new meaning to transformation. Some of our staff favorites are Mesmerizing, Effortless, and Alluring. These hair systems are easy to style and apply. Our models Erin and Rhonda had a blast shooting these looks while they braved the 16 degree weather. As the new year is right around the corner, we want to take a moment to express that we are a gender friendly and age friendly wig shop. Our goal is to help anyone who is in need of a wig, extensions, or head covering. If you have any questions, please contact us today!

Life with Extensions
Today was the first full day I wore my extensions. I was nervous people would notice I had extensions in. I thought my peers would be able to see them in my hair. After a long day at work, I went to the bathroom and checked out how they held up. To my great surprise, they were still exactly where I had placed them in the morning and I couldn't even find where they were on my scalp by just looking in the mirror! I was so pleased. I had volume throughout my hair the entire day and the little extra length I wanted. When I styled my extensions this morning, I had followed Melanie's directions and after I curled each strand, I pinned the curls while they cooled off. The curl held all day and even better than my own hair did! I was hesitant to purchase these extensions, however I love them and could never go back!
At Hair Because We Care we are excited to begin carrying Human Hair Extensions. These hair extensions are perfect if you have thin hair and are looking to add volume to your look. I have recently ordered mine and I can not wait to wear them for an upcoming family photo session. I have very thin hair and I purchased the 5 layer clip in extensions. The extensions can be curled, straightened, and styled to fit any style. Check out our Extensions page for more information about our 100% Human Hair Extensions.
