Arda Wigs Swatch Ring (round 2): Swatches & Fiber Review.

Two rings to rule them all. I separated the natural hairs shades from the colourful ones. ;)
Arda Wigs Color Ring swatches are done in natural direct light this time for as much colour accuracy as the camera and computer can muster. I've left out discontinued shade this time around.

You can see the original and discontinued colours here for reference.

The wig shade blends are Hiperlon based. Very subtle sheen.

Hiperlon based wigs don't take well to alcohol based dyes, I've tried this twice as well and the dye would rub/wash off completely. From personal experience boiled normal fabric dye baths do work to achieve 40%-60% of the original colour as a tint and iDye Poly gets 100% to the colour. Others have had luck airbrushing with Liquitex Liquid Acrylics. In the same vein, you should be able to get the same results with FW acrylic inks but I have not tried this myself yet.


This award is given out for one the most rainbow collection of shade blend without resorting to traditional neon shades.

You can purchase your supplied from Ard Wigs (with international options) or Arda Wigs Canada.
