    There’s no greater feeling than when we know we're having an amazing hair day!

    JRJulianneRWUpstageEWCodeMonoRPAngelicaRPCameron

    Wigs make every day a great hair day. But just how much should you spend for great hair?

    1. Not all wigs are created equal.

    Premium features like lace-front and human hair can make all the difference in how natural your hair looks and feels. But just because one feature is more expensive than another doesn’t make it the right choice for you.

    2. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

    Did you know that a good quality cap can take up to 30 hours to make! The meticulous craftsmanship that goes into each hand-made design ensures wearing your favorite, cute style feels like wearing nothing at all. Learn more about Cap Construction here.

    3. Not having to spend hours in the salon chair…Priceless.

    Think about the time suck of your last salon visit. Remember the anxiety of hoping they get the cut right? The awkwardness of convincing yourself that “It’s just a haircut” when they didn’t?

    Higher-end wigs are all about giving you the perfect salon look without a trip to the salon. You get just the style you want. And because the denier and texture of quality synthetic hair looks and feels so much like human hair, human hair wigs are not your only option. Checkout out our previous post about synthetic and human hair to find out which is really the best choice for you.

    Having a great hair day is like a perfectly timed, witty comeback. You feel like you can take on the world. Give yourself permission to feel as great as you know you are. You’re totally worth it!

    Wigs have come a long way since your grandmother’s day! The new advancements in alternative hair technology come together to deliver the most contemporary styles making it impossible to tell the difference between a wig and natural hair.  

    But, before you consider style and color, it’s important to find the best cap to suit your needs so you can fully enjoy your wig.

    The Base

    The wig cap or base, is the material the wig hairs are attached to. Newer caps are lighter and more durable to give you a more comfortable fit and a look that’s completely natural. There are four basic types of cap features you should be familiar with next time you’re looking for a wig. Each one has its particular advantages, and unique technique by which hair is attached.

    4 Types of Cap Features

    100% Hand-tied

    Also known as 100% hand-knotted, these comfortable and lightweight caps are among the very best available. Each hair is individually hand-tied to the cap to create the most natural movement. This allows the hairs to move freely, and you get the added bonus of styling versatility which allows you to comb the hair in any direction. It has the softest and smoothest base which contours to the scalp, giving a near custom fit; ideal for sensitive scalps or hair loss.

    Monofilament

    There are two types of monofilament tops:

    •  A full mono top allows for parting and styling versatility.
    •  A double mono top gives an extra layer of soft material for added comfort (perfect for sensitive skin or scalps).

    This is a wonderful option that offers very natural hair growth from the scalp where the hair is parted. The monofilament can be found just at the crown, along a pre-defined part or across the full top of the wig. Similar to the 100% hand-tied caps, each hair is individually hand-tied to a sheer base (but not the entire cap).

    Lace front

    These caps are more popular than ever! Once very expensive and found only on Hollywood productions, they are now much more accessible. Made of delicate materials that should be handled with care, the lace goes from temple-to-temple, or are extended from ear-to-ear and designed to blend in with a variety of skin tones. Each hair is individually tied to the cap, but like monofilament wigs (not to the entire cap).  This allows for styling the hair away from the face while maintaining the illusion of a natural front hair line. Most are ready-to-wear and don’t require tape or adhesive for attachment.

    Basic cap

    These are the most durable and affordable wig caps. They include both cap-less and traditional constructions, identified by the open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation. A weft is a curtain of hair sewn onto the cap. The hair on these caps are pre-teased at the root to mask the cap beneath, which often gives the hair natural volume at the crown.

    You may find that some styles incorporate more than one cap feature, some even vary by brand. Knowing about these cap features will help you choose wigs that are more comfortable and better suited for your needs.

Spring extends this creative energy with runway inspired trends that emphasize natural texture and color.

    The long bob or “Lob” is a longer bob that falls between shoulder length hair and a bob.

    Known in France as the ‘couper la Jeanne D’Arc’ (the Joan of Arc), it’s a practical style that encourages a more spirited side of your personality. And as a symbol of the strong, dynamic and fearless woman, it’s the go-to cut for many celebrities which is cementing this look as a major hair trend that’s in no danger of going out of style.

    Long bob hairstyles are super versatile. It's a cut that can be worn stick straight for an up-town chic look, or with waves for that just-crawled-out-of-bed-hair trend.

    This spring’s key trend reflects what’s natural about the individual, which means natural hair textures are a big thing. One effect of this trend is the emphasis on styles that are artful, yet easy to manage. Get ready for a season of simple hairstyles in textures of every kind.

    Bobs

    Why not go bold? Short hair is having a major moment right now with bobs in different styles holding their own in the spotlight. This look has been modernized with wavy textures that are tousled to embrace the natural trend.

     

    Soft Focus by Raquel Welch offers a human hair interpretation of the long bob, which means you get the most natural and longest lasting styling versatility with a soft side-swept bang.

     

     

    Or Maybe you want a more intentional look. For a naturally-straight-hair take on this trend, go more sleek and polished with Ignite shown here in color 1BRH30. Our example features angled layers with bold, golden-red highlights that offer a fresh take on brunette beauty.

     

    Long Hair

    Who doesn’t want long hair? An updated example of this celebrated favorite adds texture and face framing layers which creates movement all around while adding volume at the crown. It’s a beautiful hairstyle with a slept-in vibe that looks absolutely chic.

     

     

    Cascade by Ellen Wille is made of 100% Remy human hair. This means that all the hair fibers go in the same direction to deliver a gorgeous long cut with soft layers that fall below the shoulder. The 100% hand-tied cap, lace front and monofilament top create natural movement as well as provide super comfort.

     

    Featured here in 24BT18S8, Zara is all about long layers and softly feathered ends that deliver a natural looking style that’s flirty and feminine. The golden brown and warm platinum blonde highlights give the wig a honeyed effect which is part of the warm color trend we mentioned in our last post.

    Mid-lengths

    Modern and fresh, mid-length styles are being embraced in a major way this season! It’s the signature look for those who want a flattering style without being weighed down by hair. Remember to channel bed-head styles to take advantage of this trend.

     

    Scarlett by Jon Renau is a perfect example of the 'midi' style. It’s a light and breezy synthetic wig that features perfect beachy waves that can be styled with your fingers to achieve the best results.

     

     

    Carrie Exclusive by Jon Renau offers a sleek and polished version of this style that looks up-street with its sleek finish, gentle curves and a side-swept, full fringe. This particular wig takes advantage of Renau's Exclusive color technique to deliver a gloriously natural hue in color 613/102S8.

    This season is all about bringing out your personality by emphasizing everything that’s uniquely you. With so many cuts and styles to inspire you we’re sure there’s one out there for you to try. Don’t forget to comment down below and tell us which one is your favorite.

    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.

    Brunette hair is wonderfully versatile and its popularity lies in the fact that it complements every skin tone.

    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.
