Quality wigs and weaves make changing up your texture and length easy, as demonstrated here by catwalk sensation Sessilee Lopez.
Model Sessilee Lopez rocks weaves and wigs
At 27, model Sessilee Lopez is a global style star. And having walked for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Armani and modelled for US, Italian, French and Japanese Vogue among others, she’s been able to learn from the best stylists in the business.
“My own weave takes commitment and investment, starting with professional application that can’t be rushed,” Sessilee explains. “I sleep in a silk headscarf at night and then in the morning, I touch up the style with a flatiron on a low setting and apply a little wax to the baby hairs on my hairline. When you have a long weave like mine, you’re married to the look!”
But what about the days when she feels less committed? Well, that’s where wigs come into the picture, reveals Kiyo Igarashi, the hairstylist who created the looks here. “Wigs are a great accessory because they can transform you instantly,” explains Kiyo. “And if you want, you can refashion your hair on a daily basis.”
Thomas Tsheola, the technical centre manager at Darling and Frika, adds that wigs are also great for adding length or changing texture. “And a good quality one lasts for years,” he says. “Of course, they are also the perfect solution for women who are suffering from hair loss.”
