Skin Weft

Skin Weft with adhesive is perfect for those who love the Hot Heads application method but want organic hair. Each hair is hand tied on a 3/8' lace base. Silicone is then applied to each piece. 

Our hair is available in lengths from 12” to 28” and longer by special order.

Miss MyMy Skin Weft is a cold bond method so it does not require heat. Application is by double sided tape. They are available in single pieces (22 per pack) pre bonded, or in lengths of 1 meter with or without double sided tape.

Miss MyMy Skin Wefts are made with our Virgin Organic Hair. Our organic hair has not been chemically treated other than being cleaned and sterilized so you can expect natural bounce and shine with every piece...not to mention being able to swim in chlorine and/or salt water without fear. The hair is available in various textures from straight to tightly curled, so finding the right one for you is never a problem. If you need a color that is not available naturally we will be more than happy to color the hair, personalizing it to the color of your choice...this can also be done by your own cosmetologist...no need to color your own hair. 
Here, we started with a natural dark brown Malaysian hair.
We added hair bleach and 40% developer.
The final golden blond hair we achieved.

Here’s how to apply a complete set of Miss MyMy permanent Skin Weft extensions adding not only length, but volume and or highlights in less than 1 hour. The days of spending huge amounts of money on hair that not only matts and tangles but falls out and cannot be reused are over. The days of not being able to find a texture or curl to blend with your hair are over. Miss MyMy’ Skin Weft takes care of all of that. completely reusable, organic and tangle free Miss MyMy Skin Weft is completely undetectable.

    Start all service with clean and dry hair. Do not apply any products to the hair.
    Section and separate the hair where you want to attach Miss MyMy Skin Weft

     Remove the backing on the skin weft and place under the thin section of hair that was separated. 
    The adhesive should be about 1/8 inch away from the scalp.
    Press the hair into the adhesive strip.

    Place the second Miss MyMy Skin Weft on top of the first, sandwiching the natural hair between. 
    Press down to acheive good adhesion

       Comb hair on top for a seamless invisible look.
      Voila!  Instant highlights!

      Get Instant Bangs Without Cutting Your Hair (or Wig!)

      One of the greatest new things we carry has to be the Instant Fringe for easy bangs. No commitment in cutting your own hair. I don't know about you, but I have had the experience of cutting my hair into bangs, only to wish a week later that I hadn't.

      This unit is completely hand tied on fine mono Simply pull your hair back slightly and clip the piece at the front of your hair for an instant change…No need to cut your precious hair. Whether you already have bangs and would like to add long soft layers around your face with an all one length front center part...or you don't have bangs but would like to have some without the commitment...this small piece is a perfect addition to your hair wardrobe.
      This unit can be worn:
      • With extensions or your own hair for an instant non-permanent change.
      • Takes seconds to apply with clips.
      • Does not damage your hair
      Available with the following hair types from 14"-26"
      • Malaysian
      • Fijian
      • European all lengths may not be available (special order)
      • Natural Grey
      To achieve the look Nicki Minaj has in these pictures, I recommend a 14' Malaysian straight Instant Fringe with 20' medium curl wig or extensions.

      Styling Tips for Curly Hair

      While the Miss MyMy curly hair wigs and extensions http://www.missmymy.com/wigs.html
      http://www.missmymy.com/remi_cuticle.html are a truly beautiful thing, there are a few things you should know in order to keep your curl looking it's Miss MyMy best.

      Curly hair tends to get very dry very quickly. It's imperative that you wash your hair at least weekly with a moisturizing shampoo. Miss MyMy's Nourishing Shampoo is formulated to clean your hair without stripping your hair. People tend to think that frequent washing will wash out all the moisture from their hair, but think of it this way: when you wash your hair, you are saturating it with water, cleaning away pollutants and build up which can cause your hair to not behave properly. Believe it or not, even your natural scalp oil if allowed to build up for weeks on end (trust me, Miss MyMy has seen it ALL!) can cause the hair on your wig to break.

      Once you've cleaned your hair, you want to lock in some of that moisture with a good conditioner. Miss MyMy's Pliant Conditioner Series is specially formulated to replenish your hair with moisture. Your hair is left feeling silky and smelling great too! I like to comb my conditioner through with a wide tooth comb.


      I was reading in a fashion magazine this morning about caring for curly hair (which is where I got the idea of today's blog topic) and one of the things mentioned, was serum. Well, well, well...Miss MyMy has been shouting the praises on Miss MyMy Hair Essence Hair Serum for years! This is the second article in the past couple weeks that I've seen them mention the importance of serum. In one of my previous posts, I mentioned using serum with styling to achieve the long, straight look. I've been telling you all for years, with your curly hair, whether it's a wig or hair extensions, you'll want to smooth some serum through your wet hair. Comb it through thoroughly. Allow it to air dry UNDISTURBED if you can. If you can't, then blow dry using a diffuser. SCRUNCH those curls!

      Avoid Over Touching
      While your hair is drying, resist the temptation to run your fingers through. All that touching creates friction. Friction creates frizz! I know, it's hard to resist touching your lovely Miss MyMy hair ;-)

      Periodic Deep Treatments
      At least once every 4-6 weeks, give that hair a deep treatment. If it's a removable unit, Miss MyMy Spa dip is an excellent product! (soon available online) Simply add a small amount to some warm water in a basin, and soak your (already washed) unit for at least 30 minutes. If your unit is sewn in or glued on, you can apply a deep treatment, wrap hair in a warm wet towel, and cover with a plastic cap for at least 15 minutes.

      When we at Miss MyMy ask whether you'll be needing any products, bear this in mind: you've just invested in your beautiful hair, whether a unit or extensions. Using the proper products to care for your unit only enhances your original investment. With proper care and maintenance, your unit will look beautiful and behave beautifully, for a much longer time!
