Synthetic Half Wigs that you can hot curl!

Outre Quick Weave! 30 to 40minutes to thin out, shape and hot curl on the initial setting, but 30 seconds every day after that. In addition, you have the option of taking it off each day to allow your hair and scalp to breathe. I leave my own hairline out and set the half wig away from the hairline for a more natural look.

Outre's Quick Weave Style: Shanti is made of "Hightex." An electric iron can be used on it from 300 to 390 degrees. It only costs around $20.

This is the Shanti half wig integrated with my own hair. I ironed out some of the curls at the ends and cut the length in order to achieve this look. If you get a professional such as myself to thin the wig out and cut some of the length off -- it is perfect for a quick last minute hairdo that you can pull out of storage for emergencies! No needle nor thread needed. Just braid your hair for support of the comb attachments both in the front and back . . .

Consider getting it prepared now . . for later!


  1. I have to admit that it took 30 minutes to thin this unit out. The picture above is with some length cut off, but not necessarily thinned out. To learn more about thinning shears, please see my article on Justin Bieber and thinning shears. Also, a curling iron instead of a flat iron will be better to curl this half wig. The flat iron seems to straighten it more than curl it even with the flip of the wrist.

  2. Another tip, hold or clip the hair down after hot curling it until it cools completely down. This will allow the hair to set in your new curl formation. Otherwise the curls will not hold. In addition, medium heat on a curling iron is ideal. Medium heat is the halfway mark for curling irons with an adjustable temperature dial.
