    Spring is finally here and what better time to consider a COLOR change? This year’s go-to hair color emphasizes the natural with cooler hues of blonde, brunette, and red to fit your complexion and undertones. We’ve put together the best hair color ideas as well as useful examples to help you take advantage of this season’s most beautiful trend for wig lovers.

    Blondes

    This spring’s golden locks are featured with darker roots and darker shades for a more natural appearance. Bronde is a fusion of blonde and brunette. It’s a way for blondes to get into the cool color trend without going too dark. For this look, find a dark blonde or light brown shade that works for you with just the right amount of golden highlights for a natural-looking honeyed color.

    Brunettes

    Brunette hair is wonderfully versatile and its popularity lies in the fact that it complements every skin tone. This season’s trend features woodsey hues ranging from caramel to chocolate with just the right amount of subtle blonde highlights to create movement. This spring consider the right mix of warm and cool browns to give your hair a velvety appearance.

    Red

    This spring brings with it a powerful color trend for ginger fans that’s gaining traction. Ronze is a mixture of copper-red and bronze which delivers a tone that is coppery and autumnal for a natural effect. It’s a perfect color for fair complexions with contrast that warms the skin, yet it has the versatility to complement all complexions with shades that range from light to dark.

    Wavy hair goes with warm weather like surfboards and picnic baskets. Low maintenance yet stylish, this summertime go-to is popular and looks great in any season. But how do you get that effortlessly tousled look? It’s fast and easier than you think. Check out our tutorial and easy step-by-step guide for getting the Perfect Loose Wave with Spirit by Ellen Wille!

     

    We’ll be demonstrating on Spirit, which is part of the new Prime Power collection by Ellen Wille. Due to it’s unique blend of human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber, Prime hair can be heat styled up to 350 degrees. You’ll also need a 1 inch curling iron. We used the 1” Professional Ceramic Spring Iron by Gold N Hot. (Want to watch as we style? Check out our video on How To Style Prime Hair.)

    Step 1: Set your curling iron to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees. Any higher will melt the fibers.

     

     

    Step 2: The secret to perfecting this style is leaving the ends straight. Start by taking a 1 inch width piece of hair from the part and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron leaving about 2 inches uncurled. *Note-We are using a standard barrel curling iron. You can achieve the same look by using a curling wand which won’t clip the hair.)

     

     

    Step 3: Twist the curling iron away from your face to create an outward curl.

     

     

    Step 4: Hold for about 5-10 seconds.

     

     

    Step 5: Pull the barrel lower on the curl and hold for another 2-3 seconds.

     

     

    Step 6: Gently pull the curl as you remove the curling iron from the hair.

     

     

    Step 7: Repeat this process working your way around your head until you arrive at the other side of the part.

     

     

    Step 8: Run your fingers through your hair a few times to soften the curls.

     

     

    Step 9: Now you have the perfect loose wave!

    DAY 13

    I have to say not having to do my hair every morning sure is nice. It takes about three minutes to brush it back and put a wig on. Loving it! And note to self… I have decided I DO NOT like nylon wig caps. The little band starts to hurt my head after about three or four hours. I don't think my head is too big, but maybe I should measure it anyway. I have learned NOT to comb my hair straight back. It makes my head sore with the wig on like when you wear a really tight ponytail all day. But when I comb my hair over to the side and pull it back it feels much better all day!

     

    DAY 19

    Nope. My head is regular size. I'm learning never to brush my wig from the top down. I find I get much better results when I use my fingers or the BeautiMark comb. It looks way more natural! I picked up my kids in a long dark wig that was the same color as my natural hair and my daughter was so excited. She said I look like her! She kept staring at me and said I looked so much different than I have been lately. Isn’t it amazing how hair can make such a difference in the way we are perceived?

     

    DAY 24

    Speaking of perceptions, the question people keep asking me is, “Is it hot?” I guess that's the general perception. In fact, it is one of the top questions almost everyone asks when I talk about wearing wigs. The truth is it really isn't hot. Not the good ones anyway! Of course, I'm mindful that the Texas 100° months are behind me so I'm sure anything is hot then. However, so far, the wigs are really very breathable and comfortable. I had squeaky clean hair today. It was straight which helped my wig slip on easier. I put a little hair spray on my head around the front to help it stay in place. Oh, and I also tried the nylon again. I really didn't like it before. But I snipped a little slit in the elastic band and it works great. It holds my hair back but doesn't press in on my head!

     

    DAY 31

    So today I asked everyone in the office to join me in my challenge by wearing a wig for the day so they too can understand our clients a little better! It was so much fun seeing people try on this lifestyle for a day. It was very enlightening for some people, and it might've started an addiction for others. Although I work here, I don't have access to see every color we have every week. So I ordered one based on the color I saw online. When I got it, it looked a little different than it did online. However, once I put it on and went outside it looked more like the color online under natural light. Now I know what my clients are talking about when they have this issue.

    If you're new to wigs, one of the first and most important steps is to measure your head. We know how traumatic and stressful hair loss can be, so knowing the right wig cap size from the beginning is essential. Take the time to measure your head with a measuring tape, and you'll be on your way to finding the perfect wig.

    Cap Size

    While average size wigs tend to fit about 95% of customers, you'll find that many wigs also come in petite and large sizes. Consider that many also have adjustable straps that give up to a half inch so that you can achieve a comfortable and secure fit.

    Wig Cap Size Chart

    To determine the right size wig for you, measure the circumference of your head from the front hairline, behind your hear, to the nape of your neck, to your other ear and then back to the front hairline. Write down your measurement, then consult the table below. Please note that sizes may vary slightly by brand and that not all wigs are available in all cap sizes.
