    Everything old is new again!

    For months now we’ve noticed a retro vibe creeping onto the hair worn on the red carpets and fashion runways alike. At the beginning of the year we saw the revival of pin curls and finger waves, but now the hair has gotten better (and bigger) than ever! From ponytails to beehives, these old favorites are getting revamped in trendy ways.

    This season you can recreate any of these hairstyles with a colorful twist!

    Back to the Future

    Demi Lovato revived the 1950s hair roll with her pink-tipped hair. The look has ‘rockabilly’ written all over it, but if you add a little bit of color you too can rock a modern take on the pin-up look with color hair extensions. If you're a wig wearer, make sure to wear a monofilament wig when recreating the hair roll to ensure the most realistic look.

    The 1960s beehive may have been Amy Winehouse’s signature style, but Teen Vogue magazine gave it a major makeover with huge neon dyed hair. You can get the same look without the commitment by clipping in colorful extensions into your hair or wig. (Psst… the brighter the better!)

    Madonna brought back the “I Dream of Jeannie” ponytail in the 90s, but this year we’ve seen it on a ton of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Katy Perry gave it her personal touch with extra-long color hair extensions. A ponytail hairpiece can give you the high pony look. Plus, by pairing it up with clip-in color hair extensions you can splash some life into it and still keep up with the trend.

    What will be the next trend to resurface? Whether it’s the Afro, The Rachel (too soon?) or the Mohawk, you can count on us to help you with the details!

    A common misconception about capless wigs is that they are not full wigs. The fact is, capless is more than what it sounds like. Don’t let the name confuse you, capless wigs give the full coverage you want and need.

    Back in the day wigs were made with a solid material that covered the entire head. Picture a baseball cap with hair sewn onto the entire base... Are you sweating yet? As you can imagine these wigs used to be extremely hot and not all that comfortable. Wigs made with a capless cap construction on the other hand, are the complete opposite. In fact, they’re everything you would want for the hot summer months!

    What is a capless wig?

    The term 'capless' simply indicates that the wig is not constructed with a closed solid base. Instead, a wig with a capless construction has what is called ‘open-wefting'. This is a machine-made cap construction that consists of open spaced wefts of hair that are held together with vertical lace strips. Check out the diagram below:

    What are some of the benefits of capless wigs?

    Wigs from back in the day were made with closed lace which created a solid base. Consequently, air would not circulate properly and made these wigs extremely hot to wear. However, since there’s no “cap” in a capless wig, the open-wefts allow air to go in and out making it super cool to wear. The lack of a solid base is also a huge pro because it makes the wig feel light and airy; some capless wigs weigh just a few ounces (Heart Throb only weighs 3 oz!). You'll never feel like you’re wearing a baseball cap with a capless wig!

    The spacing between the wefts also helps the hair density look more realistic and not overly full or thick. This gives the wig full coverage while avoiding the “wiggy” look. Plus, capless wigs made from synthetic hair tend to be among the most affordable types of wigs available. AND they are ready-to-wear – No fuss no muss!

    As always, less is more and with capless wigs you definitely can’t go wrong!

    Haven’t you heard? Everyone is wigging out!

    But in a good way! Wherever you look, wigs are haute and totally in fashion.

    Why wear wigs… why not?! You could get so much out of wigs if you give them a chance. They come in all sorts of colors, shapes, textures - not to mention all of the hairstyle possibilities! Think about how long it takes you to simply decide on a different hair color or hair cut. It’s such a permanent change most of us are scared to make the commitment. But with wigs you can go from one look to the next in an instant – change your look like you change your mind!

    Wigs for Everybody

    Wigs are no longer taboo; everyone and anyone can wear them. They’re not just for women with temporary or permanent hair loss anymore. Wigs are not only for those that need them. What’s more, they’re becoming part of pop culture. Can you imagine what Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry would look like without their wigs? Musical talent aside, it simply wouldn’t be the same!

    ‘Real Housewife’ Kim Zolciak revealed her own hair after taking off her wig. And her hair looked completely normal and beautiful! She wears wigs because she loves them. On a recent Facebook post, Kim said “I love my wigs, I love how easy they are. You just put them on and go, you can chose straight hair, curly hair, whatever I am feeling for the day. I do not do extensions, because it damages your real hair. So I will keep on wearing my wigs until the day I decide it's time to move on.” For her it’s all about comfort and versatility – exactly what you get from wigs.

    So get with the times and get your wig on!
