    Miley Cyrus dyed her hair platinum blonde & cut it pixie short

    IMAGES COURTESY MILEY CYRUS

    Miley Cyrus has the world buzzing about her new edgy haircut! And while the style seems severe to some, we admire her for trying something completely new. In spite of everybody’s point of view, she’s in love with it – “I’ve never felt more me in my whole life” – And we totally get it. There’s nothing like a new ‘do to make you feel empowered.

    The thing is, not everyone is as brave as Miley and willing to chop it all off at once. If you are thinking of taking the plunge, a wig is a great way to test the waters before committing to a new cut or color. We all have moments when we want to look different. With wigs you can have some fun as a blonde or a redhead and be back to yourself by the end of the day.

    But what do you do if you’ve already committed and it wasn’t exactly what you had in mind? Come on, we’ve all been there… looking nothing like the magazine cutout you specifically gave your stylist with strict orders. No, your new bob is not cute, it’s a hot mess! Before the tears start flowing, you should remember you have options. Lots of them! Nothing covers up a bad haircut better than a wig. Think of all the possibilities! Long, short, curly one day, straight the next – endless styles. Really there’s no reason why you should feel “stuck” with a bad haircut. All you have to do is wig out. There are also tons of clip-in hair extensions you can use to disguise a questionable haircut while it grows back.

    OK, let’s say you don’t hate your new ‘do and like Miley, you totally love it. Does that mean you’ll NEVER wish your hair were longer again? Chances are you will, and with wigs you can totally rock a different look. A short edgy cut is always chic, but you might want long glamorous locks for a special event. And again wigs are the perfect way to “grow” your hair overnight. Hair extensions are also great to add length and volume if you don’t want to go for a whole different style. You can go as long as you’d like and even add some color while you’re at it!

    So, before make the cut (or even if it’s too late) save yourself some drama and just go for a wig!

    Summer is in full swing and it’s a hot one! Can you see yourself sipping on margaritas and lounging around napping? (Are you still with us or did we lose you at ‘margaritas’?)

    Summer is great but triple digit weather… not so much. You can wear all the skimpy outfits you want to stay cool, but things are a little different when you count on a wig as part of your routine.  And unless you have no problem going without your wig, chances are you’re already sweating just thinking about it.

    Well, don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered! Just follow these 3 tips to stay cool while looking haute in your wigs all summer long.

    Cool Dos for Haute Summer Wigs

    1.      Do: Go with a capless wig.

    Last week we blogged about capless wigs; they’re light and airy – air circulates freely and keep it from feeling like a sauna. What’s more, capless synthetic wigs are perfect to deal with the summer’s humidity. Synthetic hair wigs are less affected by the weather and require minimal styling – that means you can give your hot tools a rest!

    Check out all capless wigs at Wigs.com here.

    2.      Do: Protect your wig.

    The summer is nothing without sunshine! Bad news is the sun can be equally hard on your wig as it is on your skin and hair. The fact is prolonged sun exposure can do irreparable damage to your synthetic and human hair wigs. Protect your wig by spraying some leave-in conditioner on it before you go out. Also, a shine serum can restore sheen and moisture to the fiber to refresh it between washes.

    Which takes us to our next point: Wash. Your. Wig. Sweating a little, sweating a lot – either way, it can get pretty ugly. Consider washing your wig more frequently to manage buildup (we suggest every 4-5 wears).

    Check out the awesome care products by BeautiMark for your synthetic or human hair wigs here.

    3.      Do: When in doubt, Accessorize!

    Hats and scarves can be your wig’s best friend. They not only protect your wig from the sun but they add some style to your summer wardrobe! There’s always a ton of trendy summer head wear to choose from. Give your wig the day off and wear them solo!

    The Sure Grip and the No Sweat Liners are great accessories to use under your wig. They will help to keep your wig from slipping out of place while absorbing that extra bit of sweat. So don’t be afraid to dive into a game of beach volleyball – you’re covered!

    Check out all headwear and liners here.

    As you can see, cool and chic summer hair with your wigs is possible. So, WORK IT with our cool summer wig tips – it’s never too hot to look good!

    Shop: ALL CAPLESS WIGS

    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:

    Diagram for Capless Wigs

    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.

    Whether it’d be hair extensions or wigs the fact is everyone is wigging out for alternative hair!

    Why wigs?

    ecards-wigs-are-the-new-black Image by someecards.com

    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!

    synthetic hair wigs Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry Lady Gaga look: Obsession by Risque wig; Nicki Minaj look: Party Girl Candy Stripe by Jon Renau wig; Katy Perry look: Tease by Incognito wig

    ‘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!

    Bangs.

    Perms.

    Sun-In.

    Do we hear a unanimous cringe? Yeah, most of us have a hair problems,don't stress out tress outspray-in hair highlighter or perm horror story to tell and boy, are they scary (and ugly!). We’ve all been there – stuck with a case of bad hair blues. Think about how long it took you to grow out those self-cut bangs, or that bad perm… painful to think about it, isn’t?

    The thing is too often you end up with a hairstyle that is either too costly, high maintenance or damaging to your natural hair. There’s no reason why you should put your hair under so much stress, especially if your hair is thinning and falling out.

    With summer only a few weeks away you must be itching for a new look. And we all know you’d do just about anything in the name of good hair. But would you give wigs and hair extensions a chance?

    Hair Extensions & Wigs

    The times are changing and alternative hair is becoming the norm. Just take a look around you! It’s super easy to change up your hairstyle with a wig or hair extensions - and the choices are endless. You can go from long to short hair without ever picking up a pair of scissors. If you’re looking to be a sassy redhead for the night, or have wildly curly or sexy tousled hair, you really don’t need to resort to those harsh chemicals that will harm your own hair.

    Protect your hair by wearing wigs and clip-in hair extensions. There’s no shame in wearing them, they’ll only make your life easier.
