    Everything old is new again!

    For months now we’ve noticed a retro vibe creeping onto the hair worn on the red carpets and fashion runways alike. At the beginning of the year we saw the revival of pin curls and finger waves, but now the hair has gotten better (and bigger) than ever! From ponytails to beehives, these old favorites are getting revamped in trendy ways.

    This season you can recreate any of these hairstyles with a colorful twist!

    Back to the Future

    The hair roll worn by Demi Lovato with pink tips.

    Demi Lovato revived the 1950s hair roll with her pink-tipped hair. The look has ‘rockabilly’ written all over it, but if you add a little bit of color you too can rock a modern take on the pin-up look with color hair extensions. If you're a wig wearer, make sure to wear a monofilament wig when recreating the hair roll to ensure the most realistic look.

    The 1960s beehive may have been Amy Winehouse’s signature style, but Teen Vogue magazine gave it a major makeover with huge neon dyed hair. You can get the same look without the commitment by clipping in colorful extensions into your hair or wig. (Psst… the brighter the better!)

    Madonna brought back the “I Dream of Jeannie” ponytail in the 90s, but this year we’ve seen it on a ton of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Katy Perry gave it her personal touch with extra-long color hair extensions. A ponytail hairpiece can give you the high pony look. Plus, by pairing it up with clip-in color hair extensions you can splash some life into it and still keep up with the trend.

    What will be the next trend to resurface? Whether it’s the Afro, The Rachel (too soon?) or the Mohawk, you can count on us to help you with the details!

    The halo hairpiece

    Have you ever heard of a halo? Beyoncé said it best in the lyrics: “You’re everything I need and more.” And it truly is!

    Obviously we’re not talking about accessories for angels but rather about a halo hairpiece you can rock during those “in between” times.  The halo is a hairpiece you wear with a hat or scarf to create the illusion of a full head of hair.  Some even come with a detachable bang!

    The Halo Hairpiece

    Although wigs are now super light and comfortable chances are you’ll want to take a break from them every now and then. Halo hairpieces are also a great option especially if your scalp is sensitive due to medical hair loss. Not only is it a great solution as a wig alternative to beat the heat in the summer, but also super fashionable with your favorite headwear. You don't have to sacrifice your style with the halo hairpiece; wear a pretty scarf, a trendy turban or a floppy summer hat!

    From short to long, there’s a halo for everybody!

    Before you put up your hair in a bun (yes, we know it’s the third time this week) hear us out.

    Don’t let the summer’s heat wave make you run out of steam. There are many shortcuts to fabulous hair and wigs are one way to fix your hair easily into a number of hot looks for summer!

    Even with a whole team of beauty experts, celebrities often turn to wigs and hair extensions for flawless hair. So take a cue from the celebrities and wig out! Whether you want short hair or long hair you can rock your favorite celebrity-inspired hairstyle with a wig. Check out some of our favorites!

    Get the look with wigs!

    Modern Crop

    Wigs - Emma Wig by Jon Renau

    Get Emma Watson's enviable pixie cut with the Emma wig!

    Talk about a summer shortcut! Go super short with a pixie wig for a modern and edgy style. Not only are you sure to beat the heat in this wig (it has a monofilament top) but this look is so low maintenance all you have to do is run your hands through your hair and you’re done! Who needs a brush, anyway?

    Blunt Bob

    Wigs - Nicki Wig by Jon Renau

    Get Katie Holmes' bob with the Nicki wig!

    The classic bob is fool proof! It has the chic factor that everyone can pull off. Add some blunt bangs for a fierce look. Katie Holmes softened this look by side-sweeping her bangs for a “blunt but not too blunt look” – simply gorgeous.

    Beachy Lob

    Wigs - Nicole Elite Wig by Jon Renau

    Get the famous Miley Cyrus' lob with the Nicole Elite wig!

    The beachy lob à la Miley Cyrus is so young and fresh no one will doubt you’re a sun goddess. The Nicole Elite wig comes in the ombré color that is so hot these days. Apply a shaping crème on damp hair and scrunch the hair with your hands for a piecey look.

    Bombshell Length

    Zara Wig by Jon Renau

    Get JLo's long luscious locks with the Zara wig!

    The beauty of wigs is you don’t have to commit to short or long hair – you can have both! Go short during the day and bring out your inner bombshell for a night on the town. Long wigs offer a ton of versatility; wear them down, half up and half down, in a low ponytail or a side braid.

    Summer hairstyles

    While you may mentally check out when summer starts that doesn’t mean you should go lax on your summer hairstyles. You can still look cute and put together. We’ll tell you how!

    Fast & Fab Summer Hairstyles

    With the help of a few hairpieces and hair extensions, these summer hairstyles are easy breezy and effortlessly chic – just what you need for the hot summer months!

    Summer Hairstyles in Full Swing

    Summer Hairstyles - Ponytail Summer Hair Wrap Around Pony

    Try a ponytail hairpiece to add length and flair to your summer hairstyles. A ponytail hair extension like the 23” Wrap Around Pony is made from heat-friendly synthetic hair so you can curl or straighten it depending on how you’d like to style it.

    Wear it…

    1. Low and to the side for a boho look.
    2. In a fishtail braid to give your fingers a workout!
    3. In a high and straight ponytail to channel the 90s.

     

    Updos in a Breeze

    Hair Wrap Stylemaker POP Summer Hair

    A hair wrap is a girl’s best friend. This is a piece you can throw on in a second, but still manage to look super chic in the end. We know the scrunchie has gotten a bad rep over the years but the Stylemaker Hairwrap has completely converted us to the ‘wrap-n-go’ hairstyle!

    Wear it…

    1. Low and messy for a chic but relaxed style.
    2. Straight and spiky for a funky edgy look.
    3. High in a sleek top knot or in a messy ballerina bun.

     

    Beachin’ Accessories

    Accesories Serenity Braid Headband and easilites Summer Hair

    This season, hair color is required! Colorful and bold hair is hot, and color hair extensions are totally on trend! Try easilites hair extensions in as many colors as you’d like to shock and impress this summer.

    Wear it…

    1. In a sleek ponytail to liven it up.
    2. Braided into your hair for a Technicolor plait.
    3. In an updo to electrify your pompadour.

    If edgy color is not your thing, try a sweet and simple braided headband, like the Serenity for a boho-chic look.

    Wear it…

    1. As a headband to keep the hair off your face.
    2. Across your forehead for that 70s look.
    3. As a garland in a messy updo for a milkmaid hairstyle.

    For MAJOR flair, try both the easilites and a Serenity headband (or two) together!
