    The Wig Experts Present... Our Favorite Summer Wig Tips! Don't let the heat keep you from looking your best. You can look haute and stay cool this summer. We all know that wigs can be less comfortable during the hot summer months but there is no need to sweat it! The Wig Experts have many of our top tips to help you keep cool and have fun in the sun.

    Summer Wig Tips

    Capless wigs are a fantastic summer hair 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!

    Like capless wigs, short wigs are ideal for the summer heat. They'll keep you looking chic and feeling cool in warm weather. Short wigs are perfect for summer because they're lightweight and they keep hair off your neck and shoulders. Most have open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation, which makes them more cool and comfortable to wear. And they're easier to style and maintain. Best of all, short hair is totally on trend!


    Our Favorite Short Summer Styles

    TIP: GO 100% HAND-TIED!

    100% hand-tied wig caps are made of a breathable fabric that can be extremely comfortable. Each hair on the entire cap is hand-tied onto the base, creating a smoother surface. These wigs offer the most natural appearance and movement. If you prefer longer hair, long wigs can be worn in a side braid or low updo. For ladies who love long locks, 100% hand-tied styles allow for more styling flexibility. You can easily pull hair up into a low ponytail or bun and feel the breeze on your neck.

    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.




    Wearing a wig doesn't have to hold you back. These wig accessories will prepare you for everything your summer brings. Hats, caps and scarves protect and shield your wig from the sun and can be trendy summer style solutions on their own. Add a pretty summer hat or scarf for lounging by the pool. Keep your wig from slipping out of place with the Sure Grip by BeautiMark. And No Sweat Liners by Headline It are designed to absorb perspiration during sweltering days in the heat. No slipping, stains or odors. Anyone can handle the heat with the right accessories.

    When it's time to travel, the secret is as simple as reusable zip-tie plastic bags. They take up less space than wig boxes and keep your wigs clean and dry with no frizz-causing friction. Pack them in your suitcase and take them anywhere!

    During the day, consider a designated "summer substitute wig" so you don't fret about the inevitable splashes of chlorine and sunblock at the pool or saltwater and sand at the beach. When you go from day to night, be sure your regular favorite wig is ready and waiting. You can keep it clean and dry by storing it on the Wig Stand by BeautiMark.

    Just because you're wearing a wig doesn't mean you should do without sun kissed highlights! Choose your favorite styles in a shade lighter than the one  you usually wear. It's another way your wig can look more like your real hair.

    Consider applying an antiperspirant on your scalp before you put your wig on. Sounds kinda weird, right? Well, it works! This keeps you drier and cooler underneath your wig.

John and Stella Reynolds, the founders of Jon Renau, began their entrepreneurial journey in the alternative hair industry in South Africa in 1969.

    Jon Renau

    John Reynolds, founder and CEO of Jon Renau, recently answered a few questions about his background in the alternative hair industry and how his family business has developed into an internationally leading hair manufacturer.

    John, where did your passion for alternative hair stem from?

    When I was an apprentice pharmacist during my teenage years in South Africa, I watched my boss do anything in order for his customers to be completely satisfied. Learning this early on made me customer-centric, which built a good foundation as I entered the alternative hair/wig business. Many of our customers suffer from medical hair loss. These people need confidence, nurturing, and understanding. What we do at Jon Renau comes naturally with my experience in the medical industry. I knew that I could give someone hope by rebuilding confidence and restoring their self image. That is the end goal for us here at Jon Renau every day.

    What is a challenge you face in this industry?

    When I first started in the wig business, I met a woman in Boston who owned a large practice for hair replacement. She told me two things: 1) People don't like wearing the hair 2) They don't want anyone to know they are wearing hair. After years of developing Jon Renau, I can say she is correct. Our best advertising is unseen.

    What is a typical day in the life of John Reynolds?

    My day consists of a variety of tasks in a day at the office. Emails are a blessing and a curse. Regardless, they all need to be responded to. I conduct daily meetings with various ends of the business and spend a lot of time planning and strategizing both current and future endeavors. My most important responsibility is to keep my hand over a myriad of things in the business. Outside of work, my passions are what I grew up with in South Africa: rugby union, cricket, squash, and golf. I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, children and grandchildren.

    What makes Jon Renau unique?

    1) Innovation in any industry is ultimate. We have been very innovative with our wigs by creating an emphasis on special blends of attractive color used on our hair pieces. 2) The development of comfortable and functional caps are high on our product development priorities. 3) The blending of various fibers to create a more natural product is a major focus of our product development. 4) Consistency is a vital component that is required. Our choice of vendors have been critical. 5) Customer service with an emphasis on the customers buying experience is very important to us. We are furthering that with the C.O.R.E. (Certification of Renau Education).

    What do you treasure most about your company?

    The people that work here and the contribution I see them making each and every day. I really got great people and I really like them.

    Looking forward, is there anything new and exciting at Jon Renau?

    If you don't remain innovative and creative, you won't stay alive in any industry. With that being said, this year, we have quite a few exciting new projects. We brought out the new Evolution Collection in June and are working on several other products for release later this year. All of which are quite revolutionary and are needed in the market. Innovating and improving our products bring on a special meaning for us at Jon Renau. The more we can improve the buyer's experience, the more satisfaction we feel. Watching a customers confidence build after putting on one of our products has to be the greatest feeling.
