Yesterday was the summer solstice, which means summer is officially here. As temperatures go up, wearing a wig every day can seem like a challenge. But with the right wig and wearable hair products, this summer can be a breeze. No matter what your plans, the Wig Experts are here to help you look haute and stay cool with our summer wig tips. We've got you covered!
Tip 1 - Switch to a Short Style
If you normally wear a long or mid-length wig, summer is a good time to switch to a short style for a change of pace. You can even stick with your same color if you find a short wig by the same brand. Short wigs are among the most popular styles on Wigs.com. We offer hundreds of short styles, from pixies to boy cuts to short bobs. Short wigs are perfect for summer because they're lightweight and they keep hair off your neck and shoulders. Short hair is also easier to style and maintain. Show off your chic in a short style!
Tip 2 - Go Capless
Capless wigs have open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation, which makes them more cool and comfortable to wear. They are a fantastic summer solution because they are among the lightest and coolest wigs available. A capless construction is made with open wefting throughout the cap to help air circulate for maximum ventilation. Don't let the name fool you — there's still full-cap coverage, it's just designed to be lighter and airier!
Tip 3 - Say No to Sweat
The patented No Sweat Liner by HEADLINE IT! is an essential product for any wig wearer. Each package consists of 10 disposable sweat elimination liners. The individually wrapped packages are small enough to take with you anywhere and discretely packaged for your convenience. The nude back layer, is great for camouflaging the liner under wigs and headwear. The unique combination of micro-fiber materials are engineered specifically for your needs to stay dry and comfortable. The moisture transport system quickly draws perspiration away from the skin, wicking it into the transport layer. Say no to sweat and yes to No Sweat Liners!

Tip 4 - Protect Your Wig
In addition to No Sweat Liners, we offer several other care products to protect your wig. Just as prolonged exposure to the sun is bad for your skin, it can be equally taxing for your wig. Avoiding the summer sun entirely is almost impossible so be sure to treat your wig with some extra TLC. We recommend the BeautiMark line of hair care products. Spraying Leave-in Conditioner by BeautiMark on your wig will protect it from the sun and prevent the fibers from drying out in hot weather. Brilliant Shine and Shine Serum by BeautiMark restore sheen and moisture to the fiber and refresh wigs between washes. Washing your wig every 4-5 wears will help manage build-up from increased perspiration during warmer months. And the Try Me Kit by BeautiMark is perfect for summer travel!
Tip 5 - Travel in Style
The ResQ Bag™| Kit + Mini by Amy Gibson is highly functional, chic, and a must-have for all wig wearers. It's perfect for summer travel or storage at home. Inside you will find the ResQ Bag™ | Mini, a complimentary set of all your wig essentials, and the BeautiMark Try Me Kit (recommended for synthetic hair but safe for human). The mini bag was designed to store and protect your wigs, hairpieces, and extensions. The unique mesh lining minimizes tangles and frizz, making it safe for traveling. Pockets along the larger bag keep all your essentials together and organized. Show off your personal style with fashion forward colors and prints: pink, leopard, and black.
