    Wigs & Weaves for Protective Styling

    Would you like to try a wig or a weave to rest your natural hair? Sometimes you just want a break from styling your natural hair.  There are lots of reasons why.  You may be in a style rut, experiencing damage from over-styling, or maybe you just want a change for a little while. You can always wear protective styles to rest your hair but it still requires daily styling to maintain a protective style as well as your hair is still exposed, which you may not want.
