    Everything old is new again!

    For months now we’ve noticed a retro vibe creeping onto the hair worn on the red carpets and fashion runways alike. At the beginning of the year we saw the revival of pin curls and finger waves, but now the hair has gotten better (and bigger) than ever! From ponytails to beehives, these old favorites are getting revamped in trendy ways.

    This season you can recreate any of these hairstyles with a colorful twist!

    Back to the Future

    The hair roll worn by Demi Lovato with pink tips.

    Photos by WireImage.com

    Demi Lovato revived the 1950s hair roll with her pink-tipped hair. The look has ‘rockabilly’ written all over it, but if you add a little bit of color you too can rock a modern take on the pin-up look with color hair extensions. If you're a wig wearer, make sure to wear a monofilament wig when recreating the hair roll to ensure the most realistic look.

    The 1960s beehive may have been Amy Winehouse’s signature style, but Teen Vogue magazine gave it a major makeover with huge neon dyed hair. You can get the same look without the commitment by clipping in colorful extensions into your hair or wig. (Psst… the brighter the better!)

    A colorful high pony hairstyle as worn by Katy Perry.

    Photo by WireImage.com

    Madonna brought back the “I Dream of Jeannie” ponytail in the 90s, but this year we’ve seen it on a ton of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Katy Perry gave it her personal touch with extra-long color hair extensions. A ponytail hairpiece can give you the high pony look. Plus, by pairing it up with clip-in color hair extensions you can splash some life into it and still keep up with the trend.

    What will be the next trend to resurface? Whether it’s the Afro, The Rachel (too soon?) or the Mohawk, you can count on us to help you with the details!

    The halo hairpiece

    Have you ever heard of a halo? Beyoncé said it best in the lyrics: “You’re everything I need and more.” And it truly is!

    Obviously we’re not talking about accessories for angels but rather about a halo hairpiece you can rock during those “in between” times.  The halo is a hairpiece you wear with a hat or scarf to create the illusion of a full head of hair.  Some even come with a detachable bang!

    The Halo Hairpiece

    Although wigs are now super light and comfortable chances are you’ll want to take a break from them every now and then. Halo hairpieces are also a great option especially if your scalp is sensitive due to medical hair loss. Not only is it a great solution as a wig alternative to beat the heat in the summer, but also super fashionable with your favorite headwear. You don't have to sacrifice your style with the halo hairpiece; wear a pretty scarf, a trendy turban or a floppy summer hat!

    From short to long, there’s a halo for everybody!

    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?

    Get the look with the Emma Wig.

    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.

    Get the look with the Nicki Wig.

    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.

    Get the look with the Nicole Wig.

    Bombshell Length

    Zara Wig by Jon Renau

    Get JLo's long luscious locks with the Zara wig!

    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.

    Get the look with the Zara Wig.

    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!

    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 someecards.com

    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!

    synthetic hair wigs Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry Lady Gaga look: Obsession by Risque wig; Nicki Minaj look: Party Girl Candy Stripe by Jon Renau wig; Katy Perry look: Tease by Incognito wig

    ‘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!

    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.

    As we’ve learned before in our previous monofilament wig post, wigs made with a monofilament cap construction are super natural looking wigs.  The monofilament wig hand-knotting process is long and tedious, but the result is incredibly natural! Since each strand of hair is manually hand-knotted into the monofilament material this allows the hair to lie and flow naturally. There’s much to learn about monofilament wigs, so let’s chat about the different types of monofilament wigs!

    Hand-Tied Monofilament Wigs

    Monofilament Wig: Top

    The first we’ll talk about are monofilament tops (also known as mono tops). A monofilament top covers the entire top part of the wig. This is where you would naturally part your hair. Also, these wigs have open-wefted sides and back, which are machine made. The mono top is a mesh-like material with individual strands of either synthetic or human hair hand-knotted into it.  In terms of flexibility, these are the kinds of wigs you would get the most out of.

    Examples:

    monofilament wig - Human Hair Wigs - Beguile by Raquel
    Beguile by Raquel Welch

    monofilament wig - Human Hair Wigs - Diamond by Louis Ferre
    Diamond by Louis Ferre

     

    Monofilament Wig: Part

    A monofilament part is a part line located at a fixed location on the wig. The designated section features a thin strip of monofilament. So, you can purchase a wig with a left, right or center monofilament part. A mono part has a more affordable cost compared to a monofilament top wig. The part, however, cannot be changed – so choose wisely!

    Examples:

    monofilament wig - Opening Night monofilament wig
    Opening Night by Raquel Welch

    monofilament wig - High Society - monofilament wig
    High Society by Gabor

     

    Monofilament Wig: Crown

    As the name suggests the monofilament is placed at the crown of the wig. This construction is more commonly found in bob wig styles. The benefits of having a mono crown wig are that it distributes the hair evenly and naturally at the root. Also it gives the look of natural hair growth at the crown of the hair, which makes your bob wig much more believable.

    Examples:

    monofilament wig -  Nicki
    Nicki by Jon Renau

    monofilament wig - Deluxe by Gabor
    Deluxe by Gabor

     

    FAQ Monofilament Wig

    Are monofilament wigs durable?

    Yes, they are but remember the monofilament material is delicate so it should be treated carefully. Do not pull harshly on the hair because this could loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.

    Can I wash my monofilament wig the same as my other wigs?

    Yes, you may wash your monofilament wig but do not add conditioner at the root. The conditioner will loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.

    If I color my human hair wig, will it stain the monofilament?

    Because the monofilament material is sheer and thin it will add a hint of color but will not stain the monofilament wig completely. The monofilament top, part or crown will still have a realistic look.

    Want the look of a monofilament wig for less? A Skin Part wig gives you a natural looking part without the high cost. However, these wigs are not to be confused with hand-tied monofilament wigs because the part is machine-made. The appearance of skin is simulated with a polyurethane section in which a machine inserts the fiber to create the look of a scalp. Although less common, skin part wigs are an affordable substitute to a monofilament wig.

    On April 27th, National Donate Your Hair Day, two of our employees volunteered to cut and donate their hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.

    Pantene created and funded the Beautiful Lengths program in 2006 with the American Cancer Society to help make real-hair wigs for women living with cancer. This year, Seventeen Magazine and Pantene teamed up to host the first-ever national event to encourage women and men to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair.

    More than 18,000 wigs have been provided to cancer patients thanks to Pantene's program. We’re extremely happy to be part of this selfless movement to help those in need.

    Watch this video to see our Wigs.com employees make the kindest cut of all.

    Why is it important to donate hair? Read our previous blog post, Donate Hair for Cancer, to learn more.
