    Spring is all about transformation, and what better time to trade in your old ‘do for a new look? We’ve rounded up the coolest styles from Ellen Wille and Gabor that highlight this season’s key trends to inspire a fresh new you.

    There’s something for everyone this spring as The Prime Power Collection by Ellen Wille and the Gabor Spring Collection offer styles ranging from short & chic to luxuriously long. Both collections emphasize elegant yet manageable styles for everyday wear, and we’re sure you’re going to find your new spring style.

    We love Prime Power and the Gabor Spring Collection for the unique qualities they offer. But there were two styles from each collection we felt really stood out.

    Illusion by Ellen Wille | Color: Auburn Rooted

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We applaud Illusion for being the exception to the short cut style offerings in the Prime Power Collection. We really love the tousled look featured here in auburn rooted which perfectly highlights the soft and casual waves. The center part perfectly sets off the free spirit of the long strands. It’s a second-day, slept-in style which hits on another trend that’s popular this season, the natural look.

    Spirit by Ellen Wille | Color: Champagne Rooted

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Spirit in this champagne rooted example perfectly illustrates the reason why blonde hair is always in fashion. The ‘midi haircut’ is one of the most sought after hair lengths this season. This is a more polished version of this style with its sleek and straight strands which is perfect for a special occasion, like a night out on the town.

    Radient by Gabor | Color: GL14/22SS

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Waves are a splendid thing and a great way to brighten up your style. Radiant from Gabor's Spring Collection offers a great example of adapting one of this season’s top style choices with medium length hair in what Gabor calls a “scrunched” curl texture. The long layers of free-formed curls are perfectly beachy and we love how easy it is to flip and style!

    Soft and Subtle by Gabor | Color: GL14/16

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We love blunt bobs because of how well suited their angular parts are for many face shapes. It’s an enduring style which continues trending this season because of its versatility as a style that can be worn perfectly straight or with a bit of texture. Soft and Subtle is a perfect example of a bob that is bluntly cut and can be worn wavy without taking away from the precision of the cut. The tumbled waves and disconnected ends give this style the perfect, playful personality for spring!

    Wavy hair goes with warm weather like surfboards and picnic baskets. Low maintenance yet stylish, this summertime go-to is popular and looks great in any season. But how do you get that effortlessly tousled look? It’s fast and easier than you think. Check out our tutorial and easy step-by-step guide for getting the Perfect Loose Wave with Spirit by Ellen Wille!

     

    We’ll be demonstrating on Spirit, which is part of the new Prime Power collection by Ellen Wille. Due to it’s unique blend of human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber, Prime hair can be heat styled up to 350 degrees. You’ll also need a 1 inch curling iron. We used the 1” Professional Ceramic Spring Iron by Gold N Hot. (Want to watch as we style? Check out our video on How To Style Prime Hair.)

    Step 1: Set your curling iron to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees. Any higher will melt the fibers.

     

     

    Step 2: The secret to perfecting this style is leaving the ends straight. Start by taking a 1 inch width piece of hair from the part and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron leaving about 2 inches uncurled. *Note-We are using a standard barrel curling iron. You can achieve the same look by using a curling wand which won’t clip the hair.)

     

     

    Step 3: Twist the curling iron away from your face to create an outward curl.

     

     

    Step 4: Hold for about 5-10 seconds.

     

     

    Step 5: Pull the barrel lower on the curl and hold for another 2-3 seconds.

     

     

    Step 6: Gently pull the curl as you remove the curling iron from the hair.

     

     

    Step 7: Repeat this process working your way around your head until you arrive at the other side of the part.

     

     

    Step 8: Run your fingers through your hair a few times to soften the curls.

     

     

    Step 9: Now you have the perfect loose wave!

    Gabor is about everyday beauty that comes from elegant, short styles. So what does that mean for this legendary line’s new collection?

     

    The Spring 2016 Collection comes in 5 new styles: Radiant Beauty, Soft and Subtle, Lasting Impression, and High Impact which are constructed with natural front hairlines and special monofilament features from the Gabor Luxury Collection. Sublime features FlexLite® modacrylic synthetic fiber, and the Gabor® Personal Fit™ Cap which uses thin yet resilient stretch material that molds to the shape of your head and is part of the Gabor Next Collection.

     

    • Sublime is styled with a slight wave and added texturizing for fresh, breezy movement that gives you endless styling options.

     

    • Radiant Beauty is designed to let your personality shine with a “scrunched” texture and long layers of free-formed curls to give you a look that’s always in trend.

     

    • Soft and Subtle is a flattering cut for many face shapes and features tumbled waves in a blunt bob so that you get a stylized look that’s also casual.

     

    • Lasting Impression offers you a modern cut that's natural looking and believable with its smooth wave on top and uneven layers cut around the ends.

     

    • High Impact is a look with stunning effect that’s achieved by layered waves which give you natural body for a flattering shape and a face-framing eyelash bang that comes in at just the right moment for the finishing touch.

     

    Our favorite is Soft and Subtle. This bob is so much fun with its layered waves that give just the right amount of length. It’s truly a style that looks good on anyone and feels very light. We love the fact that the medium length makes it a simple style that’s manageable and can be worn every day. Yet it’s very chic. We feel it strikes that perfect balance between being too tame and too messy which is very in trend right now.

    If there’s one thing we know, it’s that our clients desire wigs and hairpieces that allow personalization and comfort. But how do you find one that ticks both boxes and doesn’t end up looking, well…wiggy?

    Inspired by international fashion trends, Ellen Wille introduces the Prime Power Collection to Wigs.com. It’s like nothing you’ve ever felt before, and here’s 5 things we love about this new collection:

     

    1.       It’s Human Hair – Enhanced!

    Prime Power is designed for the woman with discerning taste. The unique blend of high quality human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber makes Prime a standout in the luxury hair market.  With the look and feel of human hair combined with the stylability of synthetic hair, you truly get the best of both worlds!

     

    2.       Longer Lasting Style

    Illusion by Ellen Wille | Color: Auburn Rooted

    Illusion by Ellen Wille | Color: Champagne Rooted

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Prime Hair is perfect for the woman on the go! What we love is that Prime Hair means never having to trade off style for convenience. The premium synthetic fiber withstands heat of up to 350 degrees, and the unique blend of human and synthetic hair means the style holds even longer (even after washing!)

    3.       Color Vibrancy

    Mood by Ellen Wille |  Color: Chocolate  Mix

    Mood by Ellen Wille | Color: Ginger Blonde Mix

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    There’s nothing worse than dull looking color! Ellen Wille recognizes that each color has different needs in order to maintain its optimal long lasting vibrancy. That’s why the blend of synthetic hair to human hair in the Prime Power collection is different for each color to create the perfect result for your individual style.

     

    4.       Premium Cap Construction

    Spirit by Ellen Wille | Color: Champagne Rooted

    Spirit  by  Ellen  Wille  |  Color:  Espresso  Mix

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    When it comes to looking natural and feeling comfortable, the cap construction plays a major role! Known for innovation, Ellen Wille’s Illusion, Spirit and Mood in this collection feature a very thin hand-knotting to provide the most natural look. The lace front blends seamlessly into the front part to replace the well-known monofilament, which gives you the look of natural hair growth along the hairline. And the caps are adjustable and lightweight to give that extra bit of comfort.

     

    5.       More Than Just Wigs

    True by Ellen Wille | Color: Espresso Mix

    Real by Ellen Wille | Color: Mocca Mix

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Included in the Prime Power Collection is True which is an ultra-lightweight, face framing bang with a monofilament base and three pressure sensitive clips that give you a secure fit. Want volume? Real is the perfect feathery and fine top piece that gives you added volume that seamlessly integrates with your own hair.

     

    We tried Ellen Wille’s new collection and we loved styling it with our heat tools [look for this in our upcoming blog post]. The cap construction made the wigs feel so light that we liked running our fingers through  it. The colors were amazing!  We love the lighter shades in the long wigs like Spirit and Illusion and for short styles like Mood, brunette shades looked absolutely gorgeous!

    How-to: Rediscover Your Curls

    Curls are a girl’s best friend! What we love about curly wigs, like Jamila Hi by Ellen Wille, is that they're always fun, fabulous and on-trend. The key to maintaining your curls and keeping them frizz-free is all in how you re-style your wig. Love your curls back to their bouncy, healthy shape with our easy, 5 step guide on How To Re-Style Your Curly Wig!

    You will need:

    • A wig head Stand
    • Hair Trix Wide Tooth Wig Comb by BeautiMark
    • Brilliant Shine by BeautiMark
    • A Hair net

     

     

    Step 1: Use a wide toothed comb to detangle a section at a time starting from the end of the hair to prevent breakage. (We recommend detangling small sections for smaller curls and larger sections for bigger curls.)

     

    Step 2: Then using the Brilliant Shine by Beautimark lightly mist the detangled section to give a little sheen and some softness to the fiber.

     

    Step 3: Using your finger, twist the curls back in place. If the curl does not achieve a natural shape, try curling it again in the opposite direction.

     

    Step 4: Move around small sections until you have the entire wig curled.

    *Note-If the curl does not achieve a natural shape, try curling it again in the opposite direction.

     

     

     

     

     

    Step 5: You can use a hair net to keep your finished work in place

     

    Once you’re done you’ll have those amazing curls once again.

    Day 48

    It's confirmed, blondes do get more attention. But surprisingly it was as a redhead that I received the most flirts. Maybe redheads are more approachable? I love having the luxury of choice so much that I’ve decided to go past my 30 day commitment. Wigs feel so much like another accessory that I now plan outfits around different styles and colors. This must be how women in the 50's and 60's felt as wigs and hair was the ultimate accessory used to finish a look. Except, the hair quality is phenomenally better now!!!

     

    DAY 52

    I was at the airport today and as I walked through security I began thinking about setting off alarms. Would I have to take my wig off? I began playing through different ways I could deflect embarrassment. I got through okay, but that brief moment of apprehension stayed with me. It left me thinking about the anxiety a woman who’s not yet ready to reveal to the world that she wears a wig must feel in such a situation. It’s such a shame that there are women who wear or want to wear wigs that fear being stigmatized.

     

    DAY 65

    You know you're in love with something when you can't put it away! I decided to extend my wig wearing adventure until the end of the year. But as 2015 came to a close and 2016 began, I found myself still reaching for a wig in the morning. I never thought I would feel this way about wigs. They appeal to the side of me that’s gotten spoiled by having perfect hair every day. Seriously, I haven't been to the hairdresser in quite a while (saved some money there too). So it looks like I'll be wearing wigs for another 14 days until I can get my hair done.

     

    DAY 80+

    Going through this journey has helped me arrive at a new appreciation for my clients, especially the women that wear wigs daily as a necessity. What I love most about wigs is their extraordinary ability to transform your mood, and confidence level, in an instant! Whether you’re new to wigs or an experienced wig wearer, I hope this piece has been helpful. I would love to get your feedback. Please feel free to share your wig experience below and I look forward to sharing with you all again.
