Youngblood Wigs

Youngblood Haircutters hairpieces are made of mono-fiber (plastic). Each hairpiece has memory curl fiber, this means that even after being washed they hold their original curl. Because Youngblood Haircutters specializes in hairpieces for IRISH STEP DANCERS, all of our hairpieces have appropriate curls for feiseanna and performances. Hairpieces can be cut shorter, if desired.

How to Match our Hairpieces to Your Hair

For $30 plus shipping we will send you a complete color swatch with all 28 of our colors. If you choose to return the swatch we will credit you $20. Included with your swatch will be our catalog, care instructions, and how to attach your hairpiece. To use the swatch, pull the girl’s hair back from her face and match the sample strand to the middle of her hair, never match it to the ends. If you are torn between two colors it is generally best to go with the lighter of the two. If the girl has highlighted hair we have several highlighted shades; these are the ones that have two colors mixed together. On the color swatch, highlighted shades are represented by two colors on the same swatch strand side by side. When you order one of the highlighted shades on a wig, the two colors seen on the swatch will be mixed together in the hairpiece. If we do not have your highlighted shade, and particularly if you are matching your hairpiece in the winter when hair tends to be darker, choose a hairpiece the matches the lighter hair. Never match hairpiece to the ends of the hair. Taking your swatch to your dance studio and putting a group order together is a great way to save money and help out frustrated mothers dancers, and sometimes teachers.

How to Order

Place your order using the shopping cart on this website. If you have any trouble placing your order or are having difficulty understanding any instructions feel free to call Youngblood Haircutters at (602)-253-8121 or E-mail Terry Kelley at [email protected] .

Hairpiece Care Instructions

Each time after the hairpiece is worn, spray five to ten squirts of the Wig Conditioner and five to ten squirts of the Wig Sheen Spray  onto the wig. Gently scrunch the curls to distribute both products; wait five minutes to let the hairpiece dry, then using your fingers, untangle any curls that have become matted. Reform the untangled curls by wrapping the curl around your finger starting at the base of your finger and the base of the curl; pet the curl with your other hand to make the fiber shiny, then gently remove the curl off of your finger.  It is best to store the hairpiece in the plastic bag it came in if it is a split curl wig, or a hard plastic container if it is a sausage curl wig, after it is dry.

Never use heat on the hairpiece (hot rollers, curling irons, blow dryers etc…) as it will damage the fibers. However, you may use sponge rollers to loosen the curl. Remember,your hairpiece has memory curl fiber so it will not lose its curl or shape if proper care is taken.

Why Irish dancing is brain dancing?

The performance of an orchestra of bagpipes and drums from the EU countries at the Amur Waves International Military Music Festival of Brass Bands aroused great interest in everything Irish. IA "Khabarovsk Territory Today" talks about traditional Irish dances.

"Dance of the Wonderful People" is a rarity for Khabarovsk. There are only two schools in the whole region that can teach traditional Irish dance. Light jumps, gliding steps, swift throws and leg sweeps, combined with a calm body, make a mesmerizing impression. The head of the school of Irish dance Irish Wind (Irish wind) helped to understand the intricacies of the choreography Anastasia Merkurieva .

Crazy Dancing

The history of the Irish national dance reflects the events that took place with Ireland itself, starting from the 20th century BC, and ending with the 20th century of our era - the migration of peoples and the invasion of conquerors, the change of religions. Every culture that the Irish came into contact with contributed to their dance tradition. Initially, the dance had a ritual meaning: it was performed, praising the sacred trees and the sun. Coming from the mainland to Ireland, the Celts brought with them religious dances, some elements of which have survived to this day.

Due to the oppression of the culture of Ireland, which began in the 18th century, national dances were performed for a long time only under the cloak of strict secrecy. They were sharply condemned by the Christian church as "insane" and "bringing misfortune. " Some historians even believe that the characteristic motionless position of the hands on the belt appeared in Irish dance just after the church declared the movements of the hands obscene.

There are few schools of this choreographic direction in the Far East. For example, there are only two of them in Khabarovsk, and one each in Vladivostok and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Irish Wind Anastasia Merkurieva created in 2008. Then she decided to change her dance direction and leave modern dance. At first, folk dances were in priority, but an accident led precisely to the “dance of the wondrous people”.

“I have been dancing since childhood. And by chance I saw Irish for the first time and my impression was - “Oh! I want to go there! And to this day I really like it. An unusual combination of pride and mischief, dignity and temperament. I like that Irish dance is a combination of ballet and tap. Even if there is no music, you can put on your shoes and make your own music,” Anastasia said.

The main composition of the "Irish Wind" is not numerous, it consists of about 20 people. They are part of the Ceilidh school and belong to the largest Irish dance commission, An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha. Dancers perform not only on various stages of Khabarovsk, but also go to all-Russian and world championships, winning medals.

Dance by the rules

To establish uniform rules for the performance of dances, competitions and refereeing, the Irish Dance Commission was founded in 1929. So, the dance technique has changed significantly. Schools were able to use large halls and a wide stage. The dancers were no longer limited in space and movement, which led to many new steps and jumps, including passages all over the stage. The rule was finally fixed to keep hands strictly along the body.

Three main types of Irish dance: solo, ceili and set. Solo mainly acts as a spectacle prepared by masters, or as a competitive form. It requires professionalism and many years of experience. Kaylie is a long dance in a line and in a circle. Kaylee is characterized by jumping and hands tightly pressed to the body - “hands at the seams”.

Set dances appeared a little later after the Irish soldiers who participated in the wars with Napoleon brought with them quadrille “from the mainland” - four pairs opposite each other, forming a square. A quadrille with an increased tempo and actually Irish movements became known as a set. Sets consist of figures - movements performed in a certain sequence. There are no jumps in the set that are typical for step dances, but due to the many varieties of steps, it looks very diverse.

Initially, Irish dances were performed only by men. When the step appeared, women were not trusted with it either. Now everything is mixed up. It is important that a dancer of any level can take part in the championships, be it a beginner amateur or a high-class professional.

As for the musical accompaniment, according to Anastasia Merkurieva, this dance can be performed not only to Irish music, but also to modern music.

“Figure dancing helps develop team spirit. There are no clear distinctions in staged dances, you can invent anything you like. Everyone finds his own. In sports, in competitions, it is important to observe lines, figures, the position of each dancer in space relative to the other partner. Irish dancing is brain dancing. First you need to think a lot, and then do it with your feet. Kind of math. Because it is necessary that the final figure turned out to be even, ”the interlocutor noted.

Rhinestone tie and curly wig

The usual men's clothing for dancing at the beginning of the 20th century was breeches or trousers, a wide belt, high stockings, and a shirt. The pants took root and became a truly national clothing in popularity. The wide belt of dancers was transformed into a trophy - special award belts were the pride of male dancers. Until the end of the last century, when men still danced in kilts, a common item of men's and women's dance wardrobe was a shawl or "cloak" (brath). Previously, it was a functional element of clothing, a rectangular piece of fabric, which was fastened on both or on one shoulder with a brooch. In the last century, male dancers wore a cloak attached to their jackets, but now this fashion is a thing of the past along with kilts.

Now at the competitions, dark trousers, a colored shirt and a vest have become standard clothing for men, some wear a tie. Fashion for bright and shiny outfits has reached men's wardrobes only in recent years. Shiny vests and dazzling ties in rhinestones are not at all a sign of bad taste, but a tribute to the need to stand out from the crowd.

Women's dresses were first decorated with a modest pattern around the neck, shawls were embroidered in the corners. Capes with hoods came into fashion for a short time, but over time, in dance costumes, they were shortened and began to be fastened only on one shoulder in a masculine manner. A short jacket was worn over a dress with a pleated skirt. Then they went out of fashion, and were replaced by overhead collars and cuffs on dresses.

Patterns on dresses appeared in the 20s of the XX century, but their painting cannot be compared with what can be seen now. The traditional colors were green, saffron and white. They tried to avoid red, as reminiscent of the red caftans of the British. Now all the preferences of the beginning of the last century are forgotten and there are no restrictions in the palette.

However, the Irish Dancing Commission has a separate division that enforces the rules regarding costumes. Specialists make sure that dances are demonstrated in the best possible way at competitions. For example, girls dance not only in brightly embroidered dresses, but also in rather modest ones, beginners dance in school dresses and skirts, more advanced dancers order solo dresses in rhinestones and beads. An important point is always a long sleeve and closed collarbones, and the skirt should not be shorter than the distance of the palm from the knee.

The dancer's hair must be strongly curled. This is a long-standing tradition that all dancers unquestioningly observe. Since the performers of Irish dances are deprived of the opportunity to express their emotions (the movement of the hands is prohibited, the head and body are motionless), it is believed that the curls soaring up allow at least a little to enliven the dance and add coquetry. Dancers at lower levels have the choice of wearing a wig or curling their hair.

Irish dancers wear white socks under their shoes, and this is not at all accidental, because the fine work of the feet, movements that can be missed if the foot is in black, are much more distinguishable.

The school of Irish dance Irish Wind together with Anastasia Merkuryeva became participants in the international festival of military brass bands in Khabarovsk. They performed together with a Celtic bagpipe and drum orchestra from the European Union. The head of the musical group, one of the most famous pipers in Europe, David Johnston, liked the work of the dancers so much that he suggested that they try to make a joint number next year at the Spasskaya Tower festival in Moscow.

How to properly put on (wear) a wig, how to fasten a wig on your head: video

Usually a wig is not fixed somehow additionally. Properly sized, it fits perfectly and securely on the head, well held by an elastic band sewn into the base.

If you have a special case or some criteria that require a super strong fixation, you can fix the product using tapes or even special clips. A separate option is adjustable products. They have special straps that will help you to increase or decrease the wig as needed.

Wig fixing steps

Your hair should be pulled back into a flat bun. If a special hat is used, put it on.

  1. Wigs are shaken gently before being put on and then easily styled by hand or with a comb. After that, they are ready to wear. Curly wigs can not be combed at all, but only shake and sort through the curls with your fingers.
  2. Taking the product by the front edge, attach it to the upper part of the forehead, then put it on, pulling it towards the back of the head.
  3. Move the hair of the wig to the sides of the temples.
  4. After putting on the wig, style it with your hands or with a comb.

How to fix (fasten) a wig on the head

Let's consider cases when a special, super-strong fixation is needed, when it becomes necessary to glue the wig.

In this case, we are talking about wearing a product without a cap, usually with baldness or significant hair loss, when it is important for a woman to wear a wig, and it was perceived, looked and worn the same way as her hair. And this also implies a strong fixation.

How are wigs attached with glue?

Apply the adhesive with a brush along the hairline. Allow 2-3 minutes to dry. You can also fix the wig with adhesive tape.

Some tips

  1. Tape and glue can be used at the same time to enhance the hold.
  2. Lubricate the edges of the mesh with glue: in this case, the whole product holds firmly and does not move out.
