CLASSIC vs SILKY FAQ
Arda Wigs is excited to announce our new line of fiber, Arda SILKY!
‣ What is Arda CLASSIC?
Arda CLASSIC is our original proprietary blend of heat resistant synthetic fiber you’ve always bought and loved. Benefits of Arda CLASSIC are:
- Durable and easy to restyle with heat
- Ideal for curling, spiking, and heavy styling
- Higher heat tolerance
- Better for use with hair products (hairspray, hair glue, etc)
- Matte, natural look
‣ What is Arda SILKY?
Arda SILKY is a proprietary blend of high-quality, heat resistant synthetic fiber. Benefits of Arda SILKY are:
- Smooth and soft
- Easy to comb
- Resistant to tangling
- Great for ready-to-wear styles
‣ What benefits come with Arda-brand wigs?
All of our wigs come with the assurance of a big, roomy cap, heat resistant fibers, high fiber density, and custom blended colours for a natural look in pictures. Every Arda wig colour has a minimum of three colours that go in to the making of each of our shades.
‣ So which fiber do I choose?
Well, that depends on what’s most important to you! For a wig that needs to stand up to a lot of heat or styling, or needs to look as natural as possible in sunlight or flash, pick CLASSIC!
If you’re looking for a wig that’s ready to wear out of the bag and needs to stand up to a lot of activity, weather, or movement, pick SILKY!
Keep in mind that our CLASSIC fiber is extremely durable and definitely stands up to detangling, but SILKY is the choice for cosplayers who need an effortless way to keep longer locks loose and flowing while on the go!
‣ What’s with all the new colour numbers?
Now that we have two fiber lines, we are making it as easy as possible to find what you need. We have made a chart available to download that translates our old CLASSIC fiber numbers to ones similar to our new SILKY fiber numbers.
Arda CLASSIC and Arda SILKY will have “sister” colours. These colours are ones that fall in the same position on both colour wheels – for example, CL-01 and SI-01. They are as similar as possible to one another, but they can still be slightly different due to variations in dye procedure. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing a colour ring or a colour swatch in the fiber you are interested in BEFORE buying your wig. Please do not rely on one ring to purchase a wig in the opposite fiber line.
