2015 is the 20th anniversary of Wigs.com and we'd like to say thank you for 20 years! As part of our anniversary year celebration, we’ve selected the styles we love the most and highlighted them in Top 20 lists. We chose these Top 20 African American wigs because they're both Wig Expert and client favorites. Our pick for #1? Brie by Vivica Fox. It's a beautiful and best selling style from one of the top brands for women of color. We know you'll love these stand-out styles as much as we do.
Brie by Vivica Fox is a gorgeous, long and layered cut with flipped ends. The center skin part creates the appearance of natural hair growth at the part. The synthetic, heat friendly Futura Fiber is both ready-to-wear and styleable with heat tools. The Pure Stretch cap stretches along the perimeter for the most comfortable fit while eliminating pressure points. This fabulous style is one of our most popular African American wigs.

The Wig Experts have chosen Heidi by Jon Renau as our wig of the week. This natural looking, wavy and ready-to-wear style from top brand Jon Renau is a client favorite. It features a lace front and monofilament top for the appearance of a natural hairline and natural hair growth. Clients are saying things like "great quality," "comfortable" and "perfect beach waves." We think you'll love it too. See for yourself why this wig is so special.
Heidi by Jon Renau is a gorgeous, “boho chic” style with long, wavy layers. Jon Renau Heidi has the free-flowing beach waves fall below the shoulder and give it beautiful texture. Jon Renau has truly mastered this wave pattern, which makes Heidi so unique. The SmartLace™ front creates a natural-looking hairline and allows for styling hair off the face. The monofilament cap provides multi-directional styling and looks like natural hair growth. And the synthetic hair is pre-styled and ready-to-wear. You’ll enjoy a natural look and comfortable fit. Heidi is part of Jon Renau’s 2013 Fall Wig Collection.

"I just love the Heidi....it is PERFECT!! The density and amount of wave is just PERFECT:) As soon as I tried it on I loved everything about it. I really REALLY hope this wig never gets discontinued....it is now my full-time wig. I have since ordered some more backups in the same beautiful 8/32 shade and am also trying a couple of other colors:) There is also no shine whatsoever and the hair fibre looks so real and natural it's incredible! I highly recommend this wig!" - Wigs.com client review of Heidi

We were so excited to have Laurence Bate, VP of Production and Design for HairUWear and Raquel Welch, participate in our Wigs.com exclusive video about the Top Ten Raquel Welch Wigs. As the lead designer for Raquel Welch, no one knows her wigs better than him. Thanks Laurence!
Winner by Raquel Welch is a pixie with barely waved layers that’s perfect for every occasion. Loved for its simplicity, Winner offers a wispy bang, textured layering on top with length at the crown and layered ends. The tapered neckline has a touch of length, giving you coverage where you need it most. The ready-to-wear synthetic hair looks and feels like natural hair. And the open wefting in the cap creates better air ventilation, which provides more coolness on the scalp. It’s breathable and lightweight for a more comfortable fit. With a firm shake right out of the box, this short boy cut is as easy to style as it is comfortable to wear! And it weighs in just under two ounces. Winner is also available in a petite and large cap size, as well as an “Elite” version with additional cap features.

Hailey by Noriko is a beautiful bob style. Softly razored long layers give this cut exceptional volume and movement. The graduated silhouette is modern and fresh. Soft wispy face framing layers add a feminine touch to this style. The open cap construction is lightweight and cool. And the ready-to-wear synthetic hair can be worn right out of the box without styling. Hailey is fun, fresh, and fierce.

"This style is a very nice updated classic angled blunt cut. My hair was cut like this years ago but a shorter version and is a definite classic cut. This is one of those styles that will not go out of style. As another reviewer stated I too have alopecia and I am having so much fun changing colors and styles to suit my style or mood for the day. I have had compliments with this wig and as another reviewer said it is very natural looking. Because I like the look of bangs I lightly feathered in some bangs and it is just perfect for me and for my taste. This style will look nice on young or mature faces.Try it for something new and enjoy!" - Wigs.com client review of Hailey

Today's blog post was written by guest blogger Jodi Pliszka, M.S., President and inventor of the No Sweat Liners by Headline It! This wig accessory is one of the most popular wearable hair products on Wigs.com, and is especially beneficial in the summer. Thanks Jodi for your guest blog post!
"God gave me a shiny bald head, an education and a voice to make a difference in the world... losing my hair, helped me find who I am!" -Jodi Pliszka, M.S.
Sweat can be an issue for many headwear users in the summer. Sweat can stain your wigs, baseball caps, and scarves and leave oils, odors and salt stain residue. Face it! The more you sweat, the more you need to wash your wigs and the quicker you are going to need to purchase a new wig. Did you know that we lose about 1 tsp. of water from our heads, each hour, when we perspire? Some products retain the moisture, and as the head heats up, it begins to “steam” the head, like you would a lobster. This increases the core body temperature and makes us hotter,more tired and more prone to irritability.
Don’t worry! Wigs.com knows the best way to help regulate your core body temperature and fight heat stress this summer, with our Headline It! “No Sweat” Comfort liners. Designed for women with cancer, alopecia, other medical conditions and even our U.S. Military. Yes, Headline It! No Sweat Comfort liners are the #1 headwear accessory designed with high tech wick wear, to pull the sweat away from your head, and into the liner. This keeps your head cooler in the summer (and warmer in the winter). The liners retain 4 times their weight in sweat, stopping it from rolling into your eyes. No more sunscreen, rolling into your eyes, stinging them.
The back “tan” layer is made from high tech SMS material that has 1-3 microns per sq. inch (about 1 million dense particles) to trap the oils, salts and odors, before it saturates your wig, hat or headwear item. By trapping all of the impurities, it drastically reduces the amount of times you need to wash your wigs/ hats/ scarves, within the month. By doing this, you are saving time (don’t we all need more of that?) and you are saving money, from not having to prematurely replace a wig/hat/scarf, as often. The liners act like a “one way street”, bringing in perspiration through the hydrophilic side, that touches your head, and evaporating it continuously. The SMS material, which is tan, is hydrophobic (phobic-afraid of water) so the perspiration can’t enter the back of the liner. If you take a drop of water and place it on the SMS material, the tan side, the water droplets will stay their, indefinitely.
Each liner can be used for 80 hours, which is about 10-14 days of use. The back layer absorbs so many of the impurities, that the liner needs to be disposed of after this time frame, or it won’t evaporate the perspiration effectively. The liners can be tossed in the garbage, when they are soiled and two new liners can be placed inside the wig/ hat/ scarf/ helmet.
For extreme comfort, it’s important to use 2 liners. One in the front and one in the back of the headwear item. They were made this way, so they wouldn’t need to be sized and will fit every size and shaped head. Since tape doesn’t stick well to oil, please make sure that you wipe down the inside of the headwear item, prior to removing the peel strip, and sticking it into the wig/ hat/ helmet. The liners will stay in place and keep the little pokey, itchy hairs away from your sensitive scalp. Hair or no hair, you can enjoy the comfort that Headline It! No Sweat Liners offer you.
The yellow tab, with the Headline It! logo printed on it, is the best part of the liner. Did you ever put a rug on a hardwood floor and have it slip all over the place? This non-slip piece of Egyptian cotton will act just like the piece of rubber, you put under the rug, to stop it from slipping. Our non-slip material is strategically placed, so your wigs, hats and headwear items will keep in place on your head and they won’t shift, as easily.
