Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The wig service costs and maintenance should be discussed duing the:

    • A.

      Follow up visit

    • B.

      Client consultation

    • C.

      Shampoo procedure

    • D.

      Fitting procedure

    Correct Answer
    B. Client consultation
    Explanation
    During the client consultation, the wig service costs and maintenance should be discussed. This is because the client consultation is the initial meeting between the stylist and the client where they discuss the client's needs, preferences, and expectations. It is important to address the cost of the wig service and any additional maintenance requirements during this stage to ensure that the client is fully informed and can make an informed decision about their wig. The client consultation is a crucial step in providing personalized and tailored services to the client.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The artificial covering that covers 100% of the client's natural hair is a:

    • A.

      Toupee

    • B.

      Wig

    • C.

      Hairpiece

    • D.

      Braids

    Correct Answer
    B. Wig
    Explanation
    A wig is the correct answer because it is an artificial covering that can completely cover a client's natural hair. Wigs are commonly used to change hairstyles or cover hair loss, and they come in various styles, colors, and lengths. Unlike toupees or hairpieces, which are typically smaller and used to cover specific areas of the scalp, wigs provide full coverage and can be easily removed or attached to the head. Braids, on the other hand, are a hairstyle created by weaving or twisting the natural hair, and they do not involve an artificial covering.

    A small hair addition used to cover the top or crown of the head is a(n)

    • A.

      Braid

    • B.

      Extension

    • C.

      Hairpiece

    • D.

      Wig

    Correct Answer
    C. Hairpiece
    Explanation
    A hairpiece is a small hair addition that is used to cover the top or crown of the head. It is different from a braid, extension, or wig as it specifically refers to a small piece of hair used for covering a specific area of the head, rather than a full head covering or a hair accessory.

  • 4. 

    The fastest way to determine whether a strand of hair is synthetic is to:

    • A.

      Burn it with a match

    • B.

      Ask the manufacturer

    • C.

      Shanpoo the hair

    • D.

      Style the hair

    Correct Answer
    A. Burn it with a match
    Explanation
    Burning a strand of hair with a match is the fastest way to determine whether it is synthetic or not. Synthetic hair is made from plastic fibers, so when it is burned, it will melt and give off a strong, chemical smell. On the other hand, natural hair will burn like human hair, with a slight smell of burning hair. Asking the manufacturer may not be a reliable method as they may not always provide accurate information. Shampooing or styling the hair will not provide any information about its synthetic or natural nature.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    With exposure the color of human hair wigs may:

    • A.

      Last

    • B.

      Reset

    • C.

      Oxidize

    • D.

      Strengthen

    Correct Answer
    C. Oxidize
    Explanation
    Exposure to various factors such as sunlight, heat, and chemicals can cause human hair wigs to undergo oxidation. This process involves the reaction of the wig's hair strands with oxygen in the air, leading to a change in color. Over time, the wig may become lighter or develop a reddish or yellowish tint due to the oxidation process. Therefore, the correct answer is "oxidize."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Synthetic wigs that are particularly durable are made out of:

    • A.

      Silk

    • B.

      Polyester

    • C.

      Yak

    • D.

      Modacrylic

    Correct Answer
    D. Modacrylic
    Explanation
    Modacrylic is the correct answer because it is a synthetic fiber that is commonly used in the production of durable wigs. It is known for its flame-resistant properties and ability to retain its shape even after multiple washes. Modacrylic wigs are also lightweight and have a natural-looking texture, making them a popular choice among wig wearers. Silk, polyester, and yak are not commonly used materials for making synthetic wigs, which is why they are not the correct answers.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The most expensive wigs are constructed using

    • A.

      SYNTHETIC MATERIALS

    • B.

      Human hair

    • C.

      Monacrylic materials

    • D.

      Human hair mix

    Correct Answer
    B. Human hair
    Explanation
    The most expensive wigs are constructed using human hair because it is considered to be the highest quality and most natural-looking material. Human hair wigs can be styled and treated just like real hair, providing versatility and a more realistic appearance. Synthetic materials, monacrylic materials, and human hair mix wigs are generally less expensive options and may not offer the same level of quality and durability as human hair wigs.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The root ends of hair with the cuticle placed in the same direction to prevent tangling is :

    • A.

      Human hair

    • B.

      Fallen hair

    • C.

      Tangle free hair

    • D.

      Turne d hair

    Correct Answer
    D. Turne d hair
    Explanation
    The term "turne d hair" is likely a misspelling of "turned hair." When hair is turned, it means that the cuticle of the hair is aligned in the same direction, which helps to prevent tangling. This is a common practice in the production of high-quality hair extensions or wigs to ensure that the hair remains tangle-free and manageable. Human hair, fallen hair, and tangle-free hair do not specifically refer to the alignment of the cuticle, making them less likely to be the correct answer.

    • A.

      Connected welf

    • B.

    • C.

      Capless wig

    • D.

      Syntetic wig

    Correct Answer
    B. Cap wig
    Explanation
    A hand knotted wig constructed for a secure fit with an elasticized mesh fiber base is referred to as a "cap wig". This type of wig is designed with a cap that has an elasticized mesh base, allowing for a comfortable and secure fit. The hand-knotted construction ensures that the hair is individually tied to the cap, giving a more natural appearance.

    • A.

      Flexibility at the root area

    • B.

      Availability in many colors

    • C.

      Ease of care

    • D.

      Special fitting requirements

    Correct Answer
    A. Flexibility at the root area
    Explanation
    The hand-tied method of wig construction resembles actual hair growth with flexibility at the root area. This means that the wig is designed to have natural movement and flexibility at the base, just like real hair. This allows for a more realistic and natural-looking appearance when the wig is worn. The flexibility at the root area also makes it easier to style and manipulate the wig, giving the wearer more versatility in their desired look.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    • A.

      Client

    • B.

      Form

    • C.

      Block

    • D.

      Canvas

    Correct Answer
    C. Block
    Explanation
    A head-shaped form used for securing a wig is commonly referred to as a block. This block provides a stable and secure base for the wig to be styled and secured onto. It mimics the shape and size of a human head, allowing for accurate styling and fitting of the wig. The term "client" refers to the person who would be wearing the wig, while "form" and "canvas" do not specifically relate to the purpose of securing wigs.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    When mounting a wig to a block ,the wig should be pinned evenly using:

    • A.

      Bobby pins

    • B.

      Staples

    • C.

      T-shaped pins

    • D.

      H-shaped pins

    Correct Answer
    C. T-shaped pins
    Explanation
    When mounting a wig to a block, T-shaped pins should be used to pin the wig evenly. T-shaped pins are commonly used in wig making as they provide a secure hold without causing damage to the wig or the block. These pins have a T-shaped top that allows for easy insertion and removal, ensuring that the wig stays in place during styling or storage. Bobby pins, staples, and H-shaped pins are not suitable for this purpose as they may not provide the same level of stability and may cause damage to the wig or block.

      Shorter

    • D.

      Look realistic

    Correct Answer
    D. Look realistic
    Explanation
    When performing a haircutting procedure on a wig, the general goal is to make the wig look realistic. This means that the stylist aims to create a hairstyle that closely resembles natural hair and blends seamlessly with the wearer's appearance. By cutting and styling the wig in a way that mimics real hair, it enhances the overall illusion and makes the wig appear more natural and believable. Achieving a realistic look is crucial in ensuring that the wig complements the wearer's features and enhances their confidence.

      Weigth

    • C.

      Sides

    • D.

      Form

    Correct Answer
    B. Weigth
    Explanation
    When cutting a wig using a free-form method, it is important to move from longer to shorter lengths in order to achieve a balanced and uniform appearance. This gradual progression helps to create layers and texture, reducing the weight of the wig and giving it a more natural and flattering shape. By starting with longer lengths and gradually cutting shorter, the stylist can control the weight distribution and ensure that the wig maintains its desired form and style.

      Textured hair

    • D.

      Synthetic hair

    Correct Answer
    A. Color-treated hair
    Explanation
    Styling products for wigs should be formulated for color-treated hair because wigs, especially synthetic ones, can be dyed or have color treatments just like natural hair. Using styling products specifically designed for color-treated hair helps to maintain the vibrancy and longevity of the color, preventing it from fading or becoming dull. These products are often formulated with ingredients that protect the color from fading due to sun exposure or heat styling, while also providing hydration and nourishment to the wig fibers.

    • D.

    Shampoos that have a sulfur base should be avoided when shampooing a wig. This is because sulfur can strip away the color and damage the synthetic fibers of the wig. It is important to use shampoos specifically designed for wigs or gentle, sulfate-free shampoos to maintain the quality and longevity of the wig.

The haircolor ring serves as a reference tool for hairstylists and customers to accurately match the desired hair color with the available synthetic options. By having a standardized range of colors, it ensures consistency and uniformity in the synthetic hair industry.

This can be done through various methods such as clipping, bonding, or sewing the extensions onto the natural hair.

The double lock stitch prevents the thread from easily unraveling, ensuring that the seam remains intact even under stress or tension. This stitch is commonly used in heavy-duty sewing projects or when sewing materials that are prone to fraying or unraveling.

    Correct Answer
    A. Gently
    Explanation
    Hair that is bonded can be successfully shampooed if it is done gently. This is because bonded hair refers to hair extensions or weaves that are attached to natural hair using glue or other bonding agents. These bonds can be delicate and prone to damage if not handled with care. Therefore, shampooing the hair gently helps to minimize the risk of loosening or breaking the bonds, ensuring that the hair remains intact and undamaged.

      Heat from a special tool

    Correct Answer
    D. Heat from a special tool
    Explanation
    The fusion method of extensions requires that the bonding material be activated with heat from a special tool. This means that in order for the extensions to properly bond with the natural hair, heat is applied using a special tool. This heat helps to soften the bonding material, allowing it to adhere to the hair strands. The use of this special tool ensures that the heat is evenly distributed and controlled, ensuring a secure and long-lasting bond between the extensions and the natural hair.

    The correct answer is a keratin based strip. Keratin is a protein that is naturally found in hair, and it is commonly used in hair products and treatments. In the fusion procedure, the keratin based strip is used to attach the client's hair to the extensions. This strip helps to create a secure and long-lasting bond between the natural hair and the extensions.
