How To Care Mannequin Hair
General care and maintenance of your mannequins is very straight forward, inexpensive and easy to do. Here are a few examples of how to look after your mannequins:
- Always make sure your hands are clean and free of jewellery. You may want to wear gloves when handling your mannequin to ensure there will be no damage to the mannequin.
- Taking extra care of the most vulnerable parts of the mannequins (fingers, hands, joints, face and neck). These parts of the mannequin are the most liable to breakages. This means you need to take extra care when cleaning or renovating these parts of the mannequins. Also when storing the mannequin, these parts need to be separate and wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them from breakages.
- Avoid banging your mannequin into hard objects. This is to avoid your mannequin breaking or chipping.
- Do not allow the mannequin to fall. Again this is to avoid breaking the mannequin. Take extra care when carrying your mannequin. It is better to take your mannequin apart when manoeuvring it around as it is easier to move and less likely to break.
- Removing smudges and marks. This can be done with multiple different methods. The first option is using a mix of toothpaste and water and then using a small sponge to remove the soiled area. Another method is to use “Clorox bleach wipes” (Atkinson, S 2013) these are just wipes that can wipe away smudges and marks.
- Pencil like marks can be removed easily by going over them using a rubber. The most likely cause of pencil marks on your mannequin is jewellery that has rubbed on the mannequin.
- When storing your mannequin, make sure to wrap every part separately in bubble wrap to avoid breakages.
- In order to keep your mannequin looking clean you can also request touch up paint from your mannequin supplier. This comes in a small pot and can be used on soiled areas.
Cleaning your Mannequin
Here is a step by step guide to giving your mannequin a quick but thorough clean.
- Before handling your mannequin ensure your hands are completely clean and free of jewellery, and then put a pair of disposable gloves on. If you handle your mannequin with dirty hands then the mannequin will also get dirt on it.
- Wipe down your mannequin with a wet cloth and bleach spray. Apply pressure to the cloth to ensure all dirt is removed.
- For tougher stains on the mannequin you can use a mix of toothpaste and water to apply to the mannequin with a wet sponge or cloth.
- When you have finished cleaning your mannequin you need to dry it. This can be done by using a dry, clean cloth. “Use small, firm, circular motions. This will leave the mannequin smooth and looking polished.”
Cleaning, maintenance and renovation are all important factors in order for your store to be a success. Your mannequins effectively reflect your brand image and therefore need to be in a pristine condition at all times. At the end of the day would you want to buy from a store with shabby mannequins? Poor looked after mannequins put people off the product and this means less customers and less sales. Clean looked after mannequins are more likely to attract customers, customer loyalty and a lot more sales. So keep your mannequins looking perfect!
How to care of Synthetic Wig ?
Synthetic wig has made lots of technological advancements in recent years. These chemically formulated fibres are so realistic, no one will be able tell them apart from human hair. In many cases, the texture and look of the wigs feels and looks just like human hair. It also can be worn straight out of the box, unlike human hair, which usually needs styling first. Wave and curl patterns in synthetic wig have a “memory” wave, which allows the curls to bounce back without much effort, and it won’t frizz or droop in humid weather. However, because synthetic wig has different properties from real virgin hair, you have to take care for the wig differently in order to make it last as long as possible.
Before washing, gently brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush. For wigs with a tight curl, do not brush, use fingers and gently remove tangles.
Use wig shampoo specially formulated for synthetic wigs. In a sink or basin, mix 2 capfuls of shampoo with cold water only. Turn wig inside out and immerse. Gently swirl and let soak for 5 minutes.
Rinse the wig gently in cold water until all shampoo is removed.
Apply 1 – 2 capfuls of wig conditioner. Allow the fibres to absorb the conditioner for about 2 minutes.
Rinse the wig gently in cold water until all of the conditioner is removed. Wrap the wig in a towel and gently pat out excess water. Do not rub.
Spritz a revitalising conditioner over the entire surface of hair. This will further condition the wig fibres.
Important: To prevent fibre damage, do not use a hair dryer, curling iron or other drying aids and keep wigs away from all sources of excess heat or open flame (e.g. stoves, ovens, barbecues, cigarette lighters).
Place your clean wig on a wig stand and allow the wig to thoroughly air dry. Do not brush or comb the wig until completely dry. When dry, use a wig brush or hair pick to gently restore styling.
To give additional styling support and to add shine and body to your wig, spray entire hair surface with finishing spray.
