Have you ever heard of a halo? Beyoncé said it best in the lyrics: “You’re everything I need and more.” And it truly is!
Obviously we’re not talking about accessories for angels but rather about a halo hairpiece you can rock during those “in between” times. The halo is a hairpiece you wear with a hat or scarf to create the illusion of a full head of hair. Some even come with a detachable bang!
Although wigs are now super light and comfortable chances are you’ll want to take a break from them every now and then. Halo hairpieces are also a great option especially if your scalp is sensitive due to medical hair loss. Not only is it a great solution as a wig alternative to beat the heat in the summer, but also super fashionable with your favorite headwear. You don't have to sacrifice your style with the halo hairpiece; wear a pretty scarf, a trendy turban or a floppy summer hat!
From short to long, there’s a halo for everybody!

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!
Watch the video below to take a closer look at a capless construction.To learn more about all kinds of cap constructions read our Wig Buyer’s Guide.

Do we hear a unanimous cringe? Yeah, most of us have a spray-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.
Check out our recommendations below!
If you want to “cut” your hair we recommend:
Shop all short wigs
Shop all bangs
Want to grow your hair overnight? We recommend:

As we’ve learned before in our previous monofilament wig post, wigs made with a monofilament cap construction are super natural looking wigs. The monofilament wig hand-knotting process is long and tedious, but the result is incredibly natural! Since each strand of hair is manually hand-knotted into the monofilament material this allows the hair to lie and flow naturally. There’s much to learn about monofilament wigs, so let’s chat about the different types of monofilament wigs!
Hand-Tied Monofilament Wigs
Monofilament Wig: Top
The first we’ll talk about are monofilament tops (also known as mono tops). A monofilament top covers the entire top part of the wig. This is where you would naturally part your hair. Also, these wigs have open-wefted sides and back, which are machine made. The mono top is a mesh-like material with individual strands of either synthetic or human hair hand-knotted into it. In terms of flexibility, these are the kinds of wigs you would get the most out of.
Monofilament Wig: Part
A monofilament part is a part line located at a fixed location on the wig. The designated section features a thin strip of monofilament. So, you can purchase a wig with a left, right or center monofilament part. A mono part has a more affordable cost compared to a monofilament top wig. The part, however, cannot be changed – so choose wisely!
Monofilament Wig: Crown
As the name suggests the monofilament is placed at the crown of the wig. This construction is more commonly found in bob wig styles. The benefits of having a mono crown wig are that it distributes the hair evenly and naturally at the root. Also it gives the look of natural hair growth at the crown of the hair, which makes your bob wig much more believable.
FAQ Monofilament Wig
Are monofilament wigs durable?
Yes, they are but remember the monofilament material is delicate so it should be treated carefully. Do not pull harshly on the hair because this could loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.
Can I wash my monofilament wig the same as my other wigs?
Yes, you may wash your monofilament wig but do not add conditioner at the root. The conditioner will loosen up the hand-knotted strands of hair.
If I color my human hair wig, will it stain the monofilament?
Because the monofilament material is sheer and thin it will add a hint of color but will not stain the monofilament wig completely. The monofilament top, part or crown will still have a realistic look.
Want the look of a monofilament wig for less? A Skin Part wig gives you a natural looking part without the high cost. However, these wigs are not to be confused with hand-tied monofilament wigs because the part is machine-made. The appearance of skin is simulated with a polyurethane section in which a machine inserts the fiber to create the look of a scalp. Although less common, skin part wigs are an affordable substitute to a monofilament wig.

On April 27th, National Donate Your Hair Day, two of our employees volunteered to cut and donate their hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.
Pantene created and funded the Beautiful Lengths program in 2006 with the American Cancer Society to help make real-hair wigs for women living with cancer. This year, Seventeen Magazine and Pantene teamed up to host the first-ever national event to encourage women and men to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair.
More than 18,000 wigs have been provided to cancer patients thanks to Pantene's program. We’re extremely happy to be part of this selfless movement to help those in need.
Watch this video to see our Wigs.com employees make the kindest cut of all.

You only get married once in a lifetime… for the first time (hey, it happens!). Which is why you are expected to look picture perfect on your wedding day. Now I don’t know about you, but that’s a lot of pressure.
Besides the dress, the wedding hairstyle and makeup are two of the most essential components of that picture-perfect look. Like makeup, the hair must be expertly sculpted into place. This is easier said than done, especially if it happens to rain on your wedding day. So what’s a gal to do?
Wigs for Your Wedding Hairstyle
Believe it or not, it’s ok to wig out on your wedding day. No, seriously it is, and no one will call you Bridezilla either.
In other words, you have the option of choosing to wear a wig for your wedding hairstyle. You’re guaranteed a head full of beautiful hair and the perfect wedding hairstyle just the way you like it.
Convinced yet? Well, before you run off to make your purchase, here are a couple of tips you’ll want to consider prior to choosing your wedding hairstyle.
Wig Tips for Your Wedding Hairstyle
- Lace is usually associated with weddings for its delicate and intricate beauty. While it’s true that a lace wedding dress is not for everyone, a lace front wig certainly is. Lace front wigs are going to offer the most natural and seamless appearance, because the lace front is made from a mesh-like material that is designed to blend in with your skin to mimic your natural hairline. This helps disguise the wig so that no one can tell where it begins. Tip: If the lace front does not match your skin tone, you can use makeup to blend it into your skin.
- Updos are the quintessential go-to wedding hairstyle because of their elegant and put-together look. And, guess what? You can wear a wig in an updo as well. The trick is to keep the style low and loose, in order to hide the wig at the nape. You can wear a low chignon, side updo, or even a loose pony – all of these looks will result in a beautiful and romantic wedding hairstyle. Tip: Apply some adhesive or tape to keep the weight of the hair from pulling back the wig.
- Another crucial point to consider is the kind of fiber to purchase. If you’re set on the wedding hairstyle you want, you may want to purchase a synthetic hair wig in the style you desire. However, if you like a little flexibility, you’ll want to purchase a fiber that is easily customizable such as human hair or heat-friendly synthetic hair. Though when it comes to stylability, human hair wigs are the way to go for your wedding hairstyle. Tip: Human hair wigs such as Angie & Kate will retain fullness and body even after they are washed.
At the end of the day the possibilities for a fabulous wedding hairstyle are endless! With the wide variety of wigs available today you’re sure to find the perfect one for you. Sarah-Catherine, winner of the Wigs.com video contest, wore her favorite go-to wig, Sky by Noriko as her wedding hairstyle. She danced the night away in beautiful picture perfect hair… and you can too.

Wig Colors for Everyone!
As you read last week, the new Jon Renau Spring 2012 Wig Collection made its debut at Wigs.com. Need to make an impression? Grab one of these hot celeb-inspired wig styles and you’re set. But that’s not all! This collection’s Elite styles (Sophia & Sienna) are available in their NEW human hair wig colors: Renau Ombre and Renau Naturals! We’ll explain why we’re so excited about these wig colors below.
Renau Ombre Wig Colors
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Ombre trend is all the rage at the moment. From Rhianna to your mama, EVERYONE is rocking the look. And thankfully, Jon Renau incorporated this trend into the collection. Renau’s interpretation of the trend is perfect because the transition of color is so subtle and natural; it is not harsh or artificial. Renau Ombre achieves a natural graduated tone of color that begins darker at the root and lightens as it reaches the tips - resulting in beautiful wig colors.
Light Ombre and Dark Ombre are available for all human hair Jon Renau Elite styles: Sophia, Sienna, Angie, Kate, Carrie, Jennifer, and Nicole. Check out the video below to see exactly what these colors look like. We know you’ll love them!
Renau Naturals Wig Colors
Nowadays wigs come in a wide variety of colors – you name it, we got it. Though, sometimes you just want to add your own unique touch. The four new Renau Naturals wig colors are perfect for this purpose. Renau Naturals wigs are less chemically processed than other wigs. This results in a much natural looking wig that may be color dyed. These wig colors are the only ones in the wig market specifically designed to deposit or lift color. This means you could personalize your Jon Renau wig to the color you desire!
While it’s true you could dye any human hair wig, the color won’t take the same way as with a wig in Renau Naturals. A more natural coloring process results in softer and healthier hair for your Jon Renau wig.
The four new wig colors are available for all human hair Jon Renau Elite styles: Sophia, Sienna, Angie, Kate, Carrie, Jennifer, and Nicole. You can learn more about Renau Naturals by watching the video below.
Tips for Renau Naturals:
• Always take your wig to a salon professional for best results.
• Color can be deposited but may only be lightened up to one level.
• For highlights, purchase a lighter color wig and deposit lowlights.

When we heard about the first-ever nationwide call to chop off our locks for someone who has lost their hair to cancer treatments, we were happy to see the awareness reach a national level. We were ecstatic when we found out two employees from the Wigs.com family were willing to participate! Donating hair for wigs is a wonderful opportunity for us to give back and help those who need it the most. Participating is important to Wigs.com because we want to set an example by supporting the first national day designated to donate hair for wigs.
National Donate Hair Day
Pantene and Seventeen Magazine teamed up to host this first national event which will benefit the Beautiful Lengths program. For those of you who don’t know, Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society that encourages women (and men) to grow, cut and donate hair to make wigs for cancer patients. The hair donated today will be used to craft beautiful, high-quality wigs by HAIRUWEAR®. This company manufactures wigs for brands like Raquel Welch®, Gabor and Hairdo among many others.
Why Donate Hair for Wigs?
As we all know, human hair doesn't grow on trees, so the demand for human hair wigs is extremely high - donating your hair is a great way to help those women in need. We encourage all of you to make the ‘kindest cut of all’ and help make a difference. So please, think about it & donate hair!
If your hair is too short at the moment (8 inches minimum), you have a whole year to grow it!
Wigs.com Gives Back!
Donate Hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths FAQ’s
How long must my hair be to donate?
The ponytail must be at least 8 inches long (no maximum length). Although some charities will accept less than 8 inches, these ponytails cannot be used effectively to make a wig.
If your hair is wavy or curly, measure it when straight.
Can I donate dyed or color treated hair?
Pantene Beautiful Lengths requires “virgin” hair, this means hair that is free of permanent color, bleach or other chemical treatments such as Japanese straightening. Since each ponytail comes from a different person with a different shade of hair, it is important to absorb dyes at the same rate in order to create a wig of the same shade of color. Only virgin hair can be processed and then dyed to the same shade.
The same goes for gray hair – no more than 5% gray hair is recommended. It is harder to color and, once colored, fades more quickly.
