Tips & Tricks

    The Golden Globes and the SAG Awards both had one thing in common: the Side Swept hairstyle.


    Even now as we enter New York Fashion Week, we’ve already seen models on the runway in one shoulder tresses; clearly this trend is in motion. Celebrities, models and designers have all been swept away with this easy to do hairstyle. And YOU TOO can have red carpet hair at home… we’ll show you how!

    We chose the Adriana wig for a few reasons. First of all, this synthetic hair wig comes with a beautiful ready-to-wear wave pattern that best matched the locks we saw on the red carpet. However, if you have a human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair wig (or your own hair) you can recreate the curls using a 1” curling iron. Also, this wig has a lace front and a monofilament top. This type of cap construction is perfect for this hairstyle because it will give your side part the most realistic look.

    This hairstyle is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Just follow the detailed steps below and give yourself a wig-over with this super easy tutorial.

    What you’ll need for the Side Swept hairstyle:




    1. Make a side part using a rattail comb.
    2. Sweep hair over the tip of your ear and let it fall over your natural hairline. This will conceal the edge of the wig.
    3. Pin hair to that side with bobby pins (crisscross the pins for the strongest hold). At this point you can apply some hairspray to tame flyways for a smooth finish.

    And Voilà! You’re done!

    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.

    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 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!

    Haven’t you heard? Everyone is wigging out!

    But in a good way! Wherever you look, wigs are haute and totally in fashion.

    Whether it’d be hair extensions or wigs the fact is everyone is wigging out for alternative hair!

    Why wigs?

    ecards-wigs-are-the-new-black Image by

    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!
