    Ah... springtime.

    Spring brings to mind the birds & the bees, but if you have one in the oven you've probably been thinking about it a lot longer…

    The Hair

    With the season change, your wardrobe changes and so does the hair. Many of us are trying to come up with a stylish and quick way to change our hairstyle without the use of harsh chemicals - especially if you're pregnant.

    The America College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) say only a small amount of color dye is absorbed through the skin, so it's safe to use during pregnancy. You should still be cautious; the first three months of your pregnancy are the most delicate. Try to limit the use of any chemical until your second trimester.

     

    Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian lightened her hair

     

    Don't want to risk it? No problem, the 'rooted' look is on trend, just ask Rihanna... Just kidding! Although ombre and rooted hair colors are on trend, they're usually much more subtle than Rihanna's obvious hair fail. So, what to do if you don't want chemicals anywhere near your hair? Read on! We're here to help!

    Wigs

    The most obvious of all the solutions would be, of course, a wig. They have come a long way and can look just as natural as your own hair. Also, they're not nearly as hot or heavy as they used to be in the past. Many of them are only two ounces in weight! When your roots are simply too much to ignore, a wig can cover a multitude of (hair) sins.

    Between rushing out the door and the morning sickness - do you really want to worry about doing your hair? No, you don't. That's exactly why wigs are so convenient!

    With so many different options available, you're sure to find the perfect one for you.

    We recommend:

    Entice by Raquel Welch short shag wigEntice by Raquel Welch is a super comfortable short shaggy wig. Just add some styling product and you're ready to go!

     

     

    Angie by Envy short modern bobAngie by Envy is a super modern short cut for the stylish future mommy! The lace front & monofilament top will give you the natural look you desire.

     

     

    Scorpio by Revlon short bob wigScorpio by Revlon is the perfect bob for the chic mom-to-be!

     

     

     

    Enigma by Raquel Welch long wigEnigma by Raquel Welch is a classic mid-length cut with a blunt bang. This wig is comfortable and on trend!

     

     

    Angelique long wig by Jon RenauAngelique by Jon Renau is a popular long layered wig style (available in a large cap). Don't let the length fool you, this classic hairstyle is made from a lightweight fiber.

     

     

    Hair Extensions

     

    Pregnant Jessica Simpson wears hair extensions to add length & volume to her hair

    If you're simply looking to change your hairstyle, you can always incorporate hair extensions or hairpieces to your look. You can add length, volume, and color with extensions. Also, extensions are an awesome solution for the mommy-to-be on a budget!

    We recommend:

    Style A Do by Hairdo UpdoWant a quick updo? Try the Style-A-Do / Mini-Do Duo Pack . You'll be a hip stylish mommy in no time.

     

     

    23" Wrap Around Pony by HairdoIf you want a long sleek pony try to 23″ Wrap Around Pony – it can be styled any way you’d like! Make it curly, make it straight, just have fun!

     

     

    16" Human Hair Clip In Color StripsFor a fun look, add color to your hair with the 16" Human Hair Clip In Color Strips.

     

     

    Clip In Bangs by Hairdo Clip in Bangs are perfect to change your look without the commitment. You'll be a big hit!

     

     

    Styleable Headband Fall by HairdoStyleable Headband Fall is perfect to add instant length and volume to your hair.

     

     

    BeautiMark

    Intensive Recovery Mask by BeautiMark

    Depending on how your body is responding to the prenatal vitamins your hair may or may not benefit from them. That's why we recommend our Intensive Recovery Mask BeautiMark. This product does wonders for your hair and it's a great way to indulge and treat your hair. Additionally, this mask is completely natural! Parabean & Sulfate-free, which means you won't be introducing any chemicals into your body.

    There's no reason why your hair shouldn't look great during one of happiest moments of your life. Think about the kid!

    Sarah-Catherine is like a breath of fresh air. It’s been a couple of weeks since we announced our contest winner and we had the amazing opportunity to interview her. We conducted our interview via Skype and learned so many wonderful, inspiring things from Sarah-Catherine (or SC for short), we just had to share! We covered everything from her passions in life, to the struggles of growing up with Alopecia. We urge you to read on… and dare you not to love her.
    Interview with Sarah-Catherine
    Wigs.com: Hi Sarah-Catherine! We’d love to get to know you a little bit better, so can you tell us a little bit more about yourself? How would you describe yourself?
    SC: Oh wow, sure! I’m adventuresome, I’m spiritual. I love life and I try to go after it. I’m happily married as of October [2011]. I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas and that’s where I live. It’s part of my identity as well, even though I’ve traveled a lot and gone to school elsewhere, I’m a Little Rock girl.
    Wigs.com: Oh that’s great! Now getting more into the role that wigs play in your life we have a few questions. As a woman when you’re getting dressed and dolled up, what does your routine consist of, involving your wig? Is it easier or does it present a challenge?
    SC: Oh, it’s much easier! I’ve worn wigs for a long time. I don’t remember, probably as a kid I had to do my hair but I’ve seen friends and my mom spend a long time on their hair and that’s a foreign concept to me. My hair has grown back at one point but if it were to grow back again, which is entirely possible, I think I would probably just shave my head and continue to wear wigs. I couldn’t imagine having to blow-dry my hair or curl it. I would never want to add that extra time to my day on a daily basis.
    Wigs.com: You said you’ve needed a wig since you were a kid, do you feel comfortable sharing with us what your hair loss is a result to and why you started wearing wigs?
    SC: In the fourth grade it fell out due to unknown causes, it is referred to as Alopecia. I lost all of my hair and it was really traumatic to me as a kid. The wigs at that time were really cumbersome, they were heavy and they were hot. They had too much hair in them as well.  I wore the synthetic hair and at that time the hair would easily fray and become stiff. I can’t say enough bad things about the wigs when I was young (she laughs)! That combined with obviously not having a good wig that would stay on. There were a couple of really terrible moments in my life when they fell off in front of people. But you know they have evolved so nicely [since then] now they are light and I don’t worry about them coming off. I have a way that I secure them, so they will not come off. They look so much more natural and I don’t feel like I have this large presence on my head. They feel pretty normal now. I still have the same disease and the hair kind of comes and goes but doesn’t really grow in all the way. So I keep it shaved and wear a wig.
    Wigs.com: What motivated you to join our contest?
    SC: Well interestingly enough, I was very compelled to do it. You know… I hadn’t ever kept it a secret that I wear wigs, but I never broadcast it. When I wear a wig like this, people are always asking me where I get my haircut. If someone asks me once, I kind of skirt it, but if they insist then I tell them I wear a wig. When I saw this contest I had to make a decision, “Is this my moment where I’m basically broadcasting it?” And thought, yes it is time. Most of the people that start wearing wigs are wearing them because something much worse than hair falling out has happened. And hair falling out is just kind of adding another level of hardship, because our hair is interwoven with our egos. That’s just traditionally the way it is. To lose something like that, at a moment when you are already going through something so terrible like having a major illness, is kind of a double whammy. For me, I’m now used to wearing wigs and I enjoy wearing them. So I had the ability to say to somebody like that on a large scale that this is NOT going to be a hardship, this is actually going to be a fun experience, if you allow it to be and not worry about it; you’ll have a good time with it. To me it was a great opportunity to maybe be a little bit of a service in that way. It was a really gutsy thing to do because you don’t necessarily want everyone thinking of you when you are walking down the street, “Oh, she’s wearing a wig!” But I think that the benefits definitely are there and outweigh the potential negative.
    Wigs.com: When were you able to overcome your fears with wearing wigs? When did you reach that confident point?
    SC: That’s a great question. I think in college is when I had a little bit more acceptance of it. That’s when I found a great wig. Around my sophomore year my aunt had taken me to this designer wig studio and it just opened up all the possibilities. And I think having a really good wig is how I was able to finally come to some kind of peace with what had happened and knowing it [hair] wasn’t going to grow back. It was great, because you don’t want to put your life on hold for something to happen, that may never happen. So in many [...]

    What's your face got to do with it?

    As much as you covet Michelle Williams' perfect pixie or Rose Byrne's blunt bangs and bob combo, for one reason or another you hesitate. Something inside tells you that not only do both of those styles imply drastic changes, but you know they simply don't go with you. "I can't pull it off," you might think. And honestly, you probably can't. The culprit is your face shape. Therefore while some hairstyles are perfect, others… not so cute. Hey, we can't have it all!

    That's why today we're giving you the scoop on what hairstyles to avoid and which ones to rock for your face shape:

    Round Face

    Round face shape

     

     

     

     

     

    If you fear the roundness of your face will make you appear bigger than what you really are, don't fret! The key is to elongate and cut the width of your face.

    Avoid:

    • Chin-length bobs, exaggerate the roundness
    • Short curly hairstyles create a round shape around your face
    • One-length cuts, accentuate the roundness of your face, especially when parted down the middle

    Do:

    • Layers help soften wide cheeks
    • Side-swept bangs add length to a round face shape
    • Height at the crown lengthens the face

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Infatuation by Raquel Welch Jennifer by Jon Renau Bobbi by Envy

    Any hairstyle that increases the height of your face is favorable.

    Heart-Shaped Face

    heart-shaped-face

    Your face has such a unique (and loveable) shape that will work with most hairstyles. However, having a wider forehead and pointy chin, you'll want to divert the attention from both.

    Avoid:

    • Blunt bangs, draw attention to a pointy chin
    • Short full styles that emphasize the upper face
    • Height at the crown, draws the focus to a wide forehead

    Do:

    • Rounded bobs fill out the chin by creating width to the jaw bone
    • Cheek-level layers/bangs soften a harsh pointy chin
    • Layered and wavy curls add fullness to the chin and help round out the face.

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Carrie by Jon Renau Upstage by Raquel Welch Roll With It by Forever Young

    Don't forget your goal is to find a hairstyle that offers balance to the face.

    Oval Face

    oval-face-shape

    Your face shape is among the most common and the most versatile. Aren't you a lucky gal?

    Avoid:

    • Short layers can make face appear long
    • Curly blunt cuts, these create a pyramid effect
    • Voluminous hair hides your proportioned features

    Do:

    • Short bobs give the illusion of a square face shape
    • Layers or waves to accentuate cheekbones
    • Updos and hair pulled back, show off our face

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Scorpio by Revlon Christina by Wig Pro Caressa by Forever Young

    Your features are balanced and proportionate – don't be afraid to try different hairstyles!

    Square Face

    square-face-shape

    Worried your face is too harsh and may appear masculine? It's all good. Haven't you heard? It's hip to be square!

    Avoid:

    • Chin-length bobs, will make your face appear boxy
    • Pixie cuts emphasize the squareness of your flat chin
    • Straight heavy bangs will only accentuate your jaw line, making it appear heavier

    Do:

    • Textured hair (curls, choppy ends, soft & flowy) soften hard angles
    • 'Lobs' with side-swept, layered eye-grazing bangs give a diagonal illusion and keep the focus away from the squareness
    • Center parts make your square brow appear more narrow

    We recommend these wig styles:

    Destiny by Henry Margu Nicole by Jon Renau Limelight by Raquel Welch

    Some of the most beautiful women have square shape faces. You're in good company! Just remember to soften the sharp angles and minimize attention to your squared-off brow.

    In terms of hair, our days can be summed up as this: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    On good days we’re flying high, flaunting our locks every which way. On bad days we throw on a hat or abuse the allotted one time a week ponytail (kudos if you got the ‘Mean Girls’ movie reference). And on ugly days? You stay home. OK, so no one really stays home due to a bad hair day, but you know you’ve thought about it... We’ve all been there.

    Synthetic hair wigs and extensions to the rescue! Whether you’ve lost your hair, or the little you do have doesn’t want to cooperate, wigs and hair extensions are a girl’s best friend. Honestly, when we need the extra help there's no reason why a heat-friendly synthetic hair wig or extension can’t do the trick. You see, once properly styled, your heat-friendly synthetic hair will stay put all day long regardless of what goes on in your environment. Unlike normal hair, synthetic hair doesn’t fall victim to the elements such as humidity and rain. You haven’t seen ugly until your hairstyle has been rained on!

    Styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions is very similar to styling your own hair, with only a few exceptions. The following instructions are only for heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions.

    Note: We recommend keeping hot tools under 350° Fahrenheit. Also, keep in mind that once you alter your wig and/or hair extension you won’t get the original style back – but don’t worry you can change the style as many times as you’d like!

    Curl Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Curling Iron

    Want to curl your wig or hair extensions? Easy! Just follow the 3 C’s:

    1. CURL
      • First of all, DO NOT curl hair while on your head. Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig. You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
      • Make sure you comb hair free of tangles (the Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark is ideal).
      • Take a 1–1.5inch section of hair (smaller sections give you tighter curls, larger sections give you looser curls).
      • Gather hair in curling iron, smooth through to the ends, roll up towards weft.
      • Hold for 15-20 seconds, release curl into palm.
    2. CLIP
      • Hold the curl in one hand, gather up towards the base and clip it in place.
    3. COOL
      • Let hair cool completely before removing pin to effectively set the curl.
      • Hair can be combed using an appropriate comb.

     

     

    Straighten Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Flat Iron

    Sexy glossy straight hair is super easy!

     

    1. Again, DO NOT style hair while on your head.
      • Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig.
      • You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
    2. Take a 1–1.5inch section, starting at least 2inches away from the base. Slowly smooth flat iron down towards end, follow with a comb to keep hair looking smoother.
    3. Continue through ends (2-3 times if needed).
    4. Allow hair to hang naturally to cool.

    Getting your “wig-on” is all fun and games, however, for the fun to actually continue we have to take proper care of our wigs. Please refer to our Synthetic Hair Special Care page to learn how.

    Tools used:

    1. Duck bill clips
    2. Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark
    3. 1" Nano Ceramic Flat Iron with Smart Heat Controls
    4. 1" Nano Ceramic Curling Iron with Smart Heat Controls

     

     

     

    Now you’re ready to start styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair! Wasn’t that easy?

Once one of radio’s most popular personalities and the author of two New York Times best sellers, Wendy is not afraid to mix it up. She experiments with different wig styles, lengths, colors and textures. See how Wendy shows off her celeb wig and expresses her style with wigs:
