    For as long as we can remember, hair colors with roots exposed were considered taboo. But today’s trend ditches the colorist for a more natural look.

    Rooted color options offer contrast by combining a dark color at the root with a lighter hue throughout the hair for an effect that looks natural.

    This deliberately two-toned look pairs stylishly with slightly messy waves for a boho-chic experience, and lends a casual element to bobs.

    Each wig manufacturer names this color option something different and uses their own description to reference it. For instance, Jon Renau refers to rooted colors as a "shaded" with an S before the color number in their Exclusive Color Collection. Examples include S12, S10, S8, S6, S4. Raquel Welch uses the letters (SS) in their color description which means Shadow Shade. Amoré and Noriko, which are both under the Rene of Paris brand, designate their rooted colors with a (-R). Henry Margu uses (GR), and Ellen Wille designates her rooted color options with the word Rooted after the color description.

    We’ve put together an exclusive list of our most beautifully rooted wigs from 3 of our top brands to inspire your look this season:

    Looking for a dramatic change? As the seasons transition to warmer temperatures, we look back at a hair landscape awash in bold cuts. Spring extends this creative energy with runway inspired trends that emphasize natural texture and color. This season’s trendiest hairstyle adds versatility to the mix calling for fun, playfulness and daring…

    The long bob or “Lob” is a longer bob that falls between shoulder length hair and a bob.

    Known in France as the ‘couper la Jeanne D’Arc’ (the Joan of Arc), it’s a practical style that encourages a more spirited side of your personality. And as a symbol of the strong, dynamic and fearless woman, it’s the go-to cut for many celebrities which is cementing this look as a major hair trend that’s in no danger of going out of style.

    Long bob hairstyles are super versatile. It's a cut that can be worn stick straight for an up-town chic look, or with waves for that just-crawled-out-of-bed-hair trend.

    This spring’s key trend reflects what’s natural about the individual, which means natural hair textures are a big thing. One effect of this trend is the emphasis on styles that are artful, yet easy to manage. Get ready for a season of simple hairstyles in textures of every kind.

    Bobs

    Why not go bold? Short hair is having a major moment right now with bobs in different styles holding their own in the spotlight. This look has been modernized with wavy textures that are tousled to embrace the natural trend.

     

    Soft Focus by Raquel Welch offers a human hair interpretation of the long bob, which means you get the most natural and longest lasting styling versatility with a soft side-swept bang.

     

     

    Or Maybe you want a more intentional look. For a naturally-straight-hair take on this trend, go more sleek and polished with Ignite shown here in color 1BRH30. Our example features angled layers with bold, golden-red highlights that offer a fresh take on brunette beauty.

     

    Long Hair

    Who doesn’t want long hair? An updated example of this celebrated favorite adds texture and face framing layers which creates movement all around while adding volume at the crown. It’s a beautiful hairstyle with a slept-in vibe that looks absolutely chic.

     

     

    Cascade by Ellen Wille is made of 100% Remy human hair. This means that all the hair fibers go in the same direction to deliver a gorgeous long cut with soft layers that fall below the shoulder. The 100% hand-tied cap, lace front and monofilament top create natural movement as well as provide super comfort.

     

    Featured here in 24BT18S8, Zara is all about long layers and softly feathered ends that deliver a natural looking style that’s flirty and feminine. The golden brown and warm platinum blonde highlights give the wig a honeyed effect which is part of the warm color trend we mentioned in our last post.

    Mid-lengths

    Modern and fresh, mid-length styles are being embraced in a major way this season! It’s the signature look for those who want a flattering style without being weighed down by hair. Remember to channel bed-head styles to take advantage of this trend.

     

    Scarlett by Jon Renau is a perfect example of the 'midi' style. It’s a light and breezy synthetic wig that features perfect beachy waves that can be styled with your fingers to achieve the best results.

     

     

    Carrie Exclusive by Jon Renau offers a sleek and polished version of this style that looks up-street with its sleek finish, gentle curves and a side-swept, full fringe. This particular wig takes advantage of Renau's Exclusive color technique to deliver a gloriously natural hue in color 613/102S8.

    This season is all about bringing out your personality by emphasizing everything that’s uniquely you. With so many cuts and styles to inspire you we’re sure there’s one out there for you to try. Don’t forget to comment down below and tell us which one is your favorite.

    Spring is finally here and what better time to consider a COLOR change? This year’s go-to hair color emphasizes the natural with cooler hues of blonde, brunette, and red to fit your complexion and undertones. We’ve put together the best hair color ideas as well as useful examples to help you take advantage of this season’s most beautiful trend for wig lovers.

    Blondes

    This spring’s golden locks are featured with darker roots and darker shades for a more natural appearance. Bronde is a fusion of blonde and brunette. It’s a way for blondes to get into the cool color trend without going too dark. For this look, find a dark blonde or light brown shade that works for you with just the right amount of golden highlights for a natural-looking honeyed color.

    Angelica by Noriko | Color: Macadamia LR

    Disc by Ellen Wille | Color Dark-Sand-Rooted

     

    Brunettes

    Brunette hair is wonderfully versatile and its popularity lies in the fact that it complements every skin tone. This season’s trend features woodsey hues ranging from caramel to chocolate with just the right amount of subtle blonde highlights to create movement. This spring consider the right mix of warm and cool browns to give your hair a velvety appearance.

    Risk by Ellen Wille | Color: Hot Chocolate Mix

     

     

    Red

    This spring brings with it a powerful color trend for ginger fans that’s gaining traction. Ronze is a mixture of copper-red and bronze which delivers a tone that is coppery and autumnal for a natural effect. It’s a perfect color for fair complexions with contrast that warms the skin, yet it has the versatility to complement all complexions with shades that range from light to dark.

    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!

    Tell us which styles you like. What are some of your favorite trends? Don’t forget to comment below and share your spring style with photos!
