Hair dancing in Peking Opera

Hair dancing is very popular in various types of opera dramas, especially the Peking opera.Hair dancing, a classic movement involving whipping the hair, is often used to express various mental states such as anger, panic, insanity, despair, pain and struggle etc. Different hairstyles in the opera drama are created and beautified on the basis of ancient people’s dress and adornments. In the drama, Dan, Clean and Ugly are all wearing wigs with varying lengths of either 2 feet 2 inches or 1 foot 5 inches.

The following is the construction method of the hair used for hair dancing. Tie together a bunch of hair, fastening the tie about two inches from the hair tip. Attach the end of the hair to a round cap of about two and a half inches. Finally, makeup is applied and the completed wig is ready to be worn.

The most famous hair dancing artists are Wang Xiaonong and Zhou XinFang. For example, in one of Master Wang’s performances, he plays the role of Chongzhen Emperor, the last one in Ming Dynasty. During this time, the whole country is going to be conquered by Li Zicheng(the late Ming dynasty peasant uprising leader). Master Wang portrays most vividly Chongzhen Emperor’s desperate and panic mood by whipping the hair upright the head and sweeping it back to cover the face like an umbrella. Master Zhou’s best card is to combine the hair dancing with whisker whipping. When hair turns right, whiskers can be whipped towards left. Natural, unrestrained and skilled, we can acclaim it as the peak of perfection.

It is critical for hair dancing to be quick, neat and fluid. These three words are easy to say but hard to realize. Hair dancing differs from sword, spear, fan and peacock feathers. It is hard to balance the strength required to whip the hair. Ordinarily, It will be either dazzling or drifting with improper strength displayed. Actors primarily use the head and neck to control and adjust the hair. If an individual uses the hand to adjust the hair, he is not well skilled and the performance will not satisfy the audience.

The hair dancing is one of the most important dramatic movements with artistic aesthetic feeling. When I was a little girl, I attempted to tie a tower to my head to practice hair dancing because of curiosity, but I never succeeded. Gradually, I learned from Peking Opera the key is to rotate the head in one direction quickly and use the neck as an axel. Only in this way, can the hair be whipped excellently with the inertia effect. Common hair dancing include movements like whipping, raising, rushing, rotating, flashing etc., in many different directions such as left, right, forwards, backwards and round.

Placing your extended hair is not the end of the entire process. Usually, it takes approximately 14 days until your hair is settled and you get used to the extensions.
If you follow our tips, your extensions hair will always be in perfect condition.
Brush your hair only with the special brush recommended by your stylist. Always start from the hair ends and go upward keeping each zone exactly over the spot you are brushing. Brush your hair very well at the roots separating each strand from the others.
For the first washing you have to go to the salon where your hair was placed, so that you will be shown the right technique. After that, you will be able alone to wash and nourish your hair with a conditioner at your home! Here is our advice for you: after applying the shampoo, move carefully your fingers up and down. Avoid circular movements with the fingers as they may tangle or mat your hair. Squeeze gently the shampoo from your hair till the ends and rinse thoroughly. Apply a conditioner to nourish your extensions and comb with your fingers. Rinse well.
Absorb well the wet with a towel to dry your hair. Don’t rub and don’t make circular movements. Carefully dry the scalp zone with the strong flow of the dryer, especially around the connections. Leave the rest of your hair to dry naturally or shape as usual.
To avoid tangling of your hair while you sleep we recommend that you tie it in a loose braid or a tail, but don’t use uncovered rubbers. Some hairdressers recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase in order for your hair not to slide away and tangle.
Your extended hair needs everyday care and maintenance. At least once per day, you have to separate your extensions. Starting from the roots downwards, check if every connection is separate from the natural hair.

MINK, SILK AND FAUX MINK EXTENSIONS – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

While faux mink tends to be the most popular material for eyelash extensions these days, there actually several different kinds. It,s easy to get confused with all the “mink/faux mink talk”, throw in “silk” and you’re like…huh? Lets break down what the different types of hair extensions are and how they differ from each other.

Mink, Faux Mink, and Silk are the most commonly used extensions. The main difference between them comes down to their firmness, are they real fur, faux fur or are they synthetic.

MINK, SILK AND FAUX MINK EXTENSIONS

Mink

Usually used on older clients or those going for an extremely natural look. The allure of extensions made from mink hair is that they have a natural quality to them that you cannot get from synthetic material. Real Mink lashes come from the Mink tail, usually coming from either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. With Mink extensions you’ll get a light, fluffy, soft natural look. The extensions usually last longer because they are so light as well as being able to apply several mink extensions per natural lash. The downside to this type of extension is that not only are they expensive, ranging from $300-$500 per set, but they also do not come curled. They’ll need to be permed and you’ll have to keep curling them at home to maintain that curled look.

MINK, SILK AND FAUX MINK EXTENSIONS

Faux Mink

These are the most popular extensions used by lash artists today. These man made, poly-fiber lashes come in a variety of lengths, diameters and curls, have good flexibility and remain somewhat natural looking depending on the length. They’re designed to imitate real mink fur, but lash artists and clients both love this of extension type because the curl is permanent and they’re low maintenance. No need to curl or put mascara on these type of extensions. The Faux Mink lashes are a little more bold, slightly glossier than the Silk and Mink. Because of their variety of size and length they’re great for customizing different looks for each client.

MINK, SILK AND FAUX MINK EXTENSIONS

Silk 

These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type which makes their retention slightly better. Because of their lightweight they are good to use on older clients or clients with weak and flimsy natural lashes. Like synthetic lashes, silk come in a variety of curls and lengths. These types of extensions also hold their curl but the curl tends to be less uniform then synthetic lashes, making them better for clients looking for a more natural look. Silk lashes tend to be thicker than any other type of extensions and also have that rick black color. They tend to be the least comfortable type of extension and are best used for special occasions.

Deciding which type of extensions to use will depend on your client. Their age, the occasion, the look they’re going for will all play a factor in deciding which extension to work with. What type of extension do you most work with? Let us know in the comments below!
