    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.

    It’s officially wedding season!

    Whether you’re a bride-to be, a maid of honor, a bridesmaid or a guest, you can create this easy hairstyle on your favorite wig and look amazing on any big day.

    To achieve the most easy and natural look possible, we chose the Angie wig by Jon Renau. Keeping in mind that wedding days are a formal affair (and a very important at that!) we chose to go with the best of the best when it comes to wigs. Angie is made from 100% remy human hair and has a 100% hand tied cap with a monofilament top and a lace front. The 100% hand-tied cap construction will give you the most comfortable fit while the monofilament top gives the illusion of natural hair growth which allows you to part the hair in any direction. The lace front allows you to style the hair off the face. When it comes to wigs it doesn't get any better than this!

    What you’ll need for this updo hairstyle:

    Steps:

    1. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Quick tip: choose a band that matches the hair color so it will blend in.
    2. Split hair in half just above your elastic.
    3. Loop the ponytail through the space created in step 2 (you’ll create an inside out ponytail).
    4. Take the hair left out of the ponytail and wrap it around your finger to create a roll.
    5. Secure the rolled up bun with bobby pins before releasing your finger. Quick tip: be sure to keep the hair low and over the hairline to disguise the edge of the wig cap.
    6. Set the hairstyle with a medium hold hairspray (be sure to use the appropriate hair product for your wig’s fiber, see all hair products by BeautiMark).

    3. Cover your Bases

    As your skin starts to lose its bronze pigment from the summer sun, highlights can begin to wash you out. You can either rock a wig and change your look completely or disguise new growth with an add-on. Hairpieces can give you the appearance of a fresh salon touch-up!

    4. Go Wild!

    Nothing is hotter for fall than prints and patterns. Accessorize your wig or hair with printed hair extensions and get in touch with your animal instincts!

    5. You Grow Girl

    Long hair for the cooler months is super popular! Thanks to wigs we don’t have to wait to grow out our hair! Switch up your short wig for a longer one or add length to your hair with clip-in hair extensions.

    STOP! Don’t you dare reach for that scrunchie again…

    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

    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!

    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!

    Check out all capless wigs at Wigs.com here.

    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).

    Check out the awesome care products by BeautiMark for your synthetic or human hair wigs here.

    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!

    Check out all headwear and liners here.

    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!

    Bangs.

    Perms.

    Sun-In.

    Do we hear a unanimous cringe? Yeah, most of us have a hair problems,don't stress out tress outspray-in hair highlighter or perm horror story to tell and boy, are they scary (and ugly!). We’ve all been there – stuck with a case of bad hair blues. Think about how long it took you to grow out those self-cut bangs, or that bad perm… painful to think about it, isn’t?

    The thing is too often you end up with a hairstyle that is either too costly, high maintenance or damaging to your natural hair. There’s no reason why you should put your hair under so much stress, especially if your hair is thinning and falling out.

    With summer only a few weeks away you must be itching for a new look. And we all know you’d do just about anything in the name of good hair. But would you give wigs and hair extensions a chance?

    Hair Extensions & Wigs

    The times are changing and alternative hair is becoming the norm. Just take a look around you! It’s super easy to change up your hairstyle with a wig or hair extensions - and the choices are endless. You can go from long to short hair without ever picking up a pair of scissors. If you’re looking to be a sassy redhead for the night, or have wildly curly or sexy tousled hair, you really don’t need to resort to those harsh chemicals that will harm your own hair.

    Protect your hair by wearing wigs and clip-in hair extensions. There’s no shame in wearing them, they’ll only make your life easier.
