    Summer is in full swing and it’s a hot one! Can you see yourself sipping on margaritas and lounging around napping? (Are you still with us or did we lose you at ‘margaritas’?)

    Summer is great but triple digit weather… not so much. You can wear all the skimpy outfits you want to stay cool, but things are a little different when you count on a wig as part of your routine.  And unless you have no problem going without your wig, chances are you’re already sweating just thinking about it.

    Well, don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered! Just follow these 3 tips to stay cool while looking haute in your wigs all summer long.

    Cool Dos for Haute Summer Wigs

    1.      Do: Go with a capless wig.

    Last week we blogged about capless wigs; they’re light and airy – air circulates freely and keep it from feeling like a sauna. What’s more, capless synthetic wigs are perfect to deal with the summer’s humidity. Synthetic hair wigs are less affected by the weather and require minimal styling – that means you can give your hot tools a rest!

    2.      Do: Protect your wig.

    The summer is nothing without sunshine! Bad news is the sun can be equally hard on your wig as it is on your skin and hair. The fact is prolonged sun exposure can do irreparable damage to your synthetic and human hair wigs. Protect your wig by spraying some leave-in conditioner on it before you go out. Also, a shine serum can restore sheen and moisture to the fiber to refresh it between washes.

    Which takes us to our next point: Wash. Your. Wig. Sweating a little, sweating a lot – either way, it can get pretty ugly. Consider washing your wig more frequently to manage buildup (we suggest every 4-5 wears).

    3.      Do: When in doubt, Accessorize!

    Hats and scarves can be your wig’s best friend. They not only protect your wig from the sun but they add some style to your summer wardrobe! There’s always a ton of trendy summer head wear to choose from. Give your wig the day off and wear them solo!

    The Sure Grip and the No Sweat Liners are great accessories to use under your wig. They will help to keep your wig from slipping out of place while absorbing that extra bit of sweat. So don’t be afraid to dive into a game of beach volleyball – you’re covered!

    As you can see, cool and chic summer hair with your wigs is possible. So, WORK IT with our cool summer wig tips – it’s never too hot to look good!

    A common misconception about capless wigs is that they are not full wigs. The fact is, capless is more than what it sounds like. Don’t let the name confuse you, capless wigs give the full coverage you want and need.

    Back in the day wigs were made with a solid material that covered the entire head. Picture a baseball cap with hair sewn onto the entire base... Are you sweating yet? As you can imagine these wigs used to be extremely hot and not all that comfortable. Wigs made with a capless cap construction on the other hand, are the complete opposite. In fact, they’re everything you would want for the hot summer months!

    What is a capless wig?

    The term 'capless' simply indicates that the wig is not constructed with a closed solid base. Instead, a wig with a capless construction has what is called ‘open-wefting'. This is a machine-made cap construction that consists of open spaced wefts of hair that are held together with vertical lace strips. Check out the diagram below:

    What are some of the benefits of capless wigs?

    Wigs from back in the day were made with closed lace which created a solid base. Consequently, air would not circulate properly and made these wigs extremely hot to wear. However, since there’s no “cap” in a capless wig, the open-wefts allow air to go in and out making it super cool to wear. The lack of a solid base is also a huge pro because it makes the wig feel light and airy; some capless wigs weigh just a few ounces (Heart Throb only weighs 3 oz!). You'll never feel like you’re wearing a baseball cap with a capless wig!

    The spacing between the wefts also helps the hair density look more realistic and not overly full or thick. This gives the wig full coverage while avoiding the “wiggy” look. Plus, capless wigs made from synthetic hair tend to be among the most affordable types of wigs available. AND they are ready-to-wear – No fuss no muss!

    As always, less is more and with capless wigs you definitely can’t go wrong!

    Why wigs?

    Why wear wigs… why not?! You could get so much out of wigs if you give them a chance. They come in all sorts of colors, shapes, textures - not to mention all of the hairstyle possibilities! Think about how long it takes you to simply decide on a different hair color or hair cut. It’s such a permanent change most of us are scared to make the commitment. But with wigs you can go from one look to the next in an instant – change your look like you change your mind!

    Wigs for Everybody

    Wigs are no longer taboo; everyone and anyone can wear them. They’re not just for women with temporary or permanent hair loss anymore. Wigs are not only for those that need them. What’s more, they’re becoming part of pop culture. Can you imagine what Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry would look like without their wigs? Musical talent aside, it simply wouldn’t be the same!

    ‘Real Housewife’ Kim Zolciak revealed her own hair after taking off her wig. And her hair looked completely normal and beautiful! She wears wigs because she loves them. On a recent Facebook post, Kim said “I love my wigs, I love how easy they are. You just put them on and go, you can chose straight hair, curly hair, whatever I am feeling for the day. I do not do extensions, because it damages your real hair. So I will keep on wearing my wigs until the day I decide it's time to move on.” For her it’s all about comfort and versatility – exactly what you get from wigs.

    So get with the times and get your wig on!
