    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    DAY 33

    It’s raining cats and dogs and as I pull into work my wig looks perfect. This is a big deal because I styled it all by myself and I am not the best at primping my own hair. It’s a short and dark, one length wig from Louis Ferre made of human hair. The quality is amazing! At first the lace wouldn't lay down properly on my forehead so I thought it may be defective. But it's almost like it just figured out my head shape because after I styled it (flat ironed the waves which took me too long!) the hair feels incredible and looks great!

     

    DAY 38

    I’ve noticed that no matter how secure I know my wig is I keep touching it to make sure it hasn’t ridden up. I’m not sure if this is a nervous habit I developed because it took a couple of weeks for me to get the 'putting on' process down. But once I start tugging my hair underneath begins moving. I made a conscious effort not to touch it and trust it is where it belongs. I found myself still doing mirror checks just to be sure.

     

    DAY 41

    Three days later and the not-tugging-on-my-wig-to-make-sure-it’s-in-place effort is working like a dream. What a difference! It turns out the problem was my own insecurity about my wig moving. Today was my first real experience with cold set, which is when a wig sits in a box a long time, or is exposed to extreme temperatures while in the box. It sets the hair in a weird shape, (usually on top or in front). I learned to spritz it down with water, rub my hands together vigorously and touch it up. The heat from your hands resets the hair!

     

    DAY 46

    I'm learning so many things about hair color. The only thing that's changed on me over the last month or so has been my hair. But there’s a difference in the way I’m treated depending on which color I choose for the day. I received the most compliments on my hair as a brunette. I feel the most at home in this color. The consensus seems to be that I look younger, "classier" was the word used. But as a blonde I received more concessions: men allowed me to go first in line; I got little extras at the counter; and (of course) I got looked at. Even women were giving me the “once over”. Each color has its advantage for sure.

    WEAR WIGS? ... WHY YES!

    Recently in an interview I was asked if I wear wigs all the time. I don’t. As a matter of fact, I haven’t worn one in more than five years. And before then, I just did it for fun or on rare occasions even though I’ve worn extensions and hairpieces to give my natural hair a little boost. At that moment I realized I didn't know exactly what my clients go through living with wigs on a day-to-day basis. I’ve always been convicted and passionate about helping my clients and giving them the information and education they need to have a great experience with wigs. That’s what really prompted me to start on my 30-day journey. I want to know the benefits and struggles they go through and how it affects them emotionally on a daily basis. I didn’t have the answers yet, but I was ready to find out. Come with me as I take you through my wig experience.

     

    Day 1

    Today marks the beginning of my 30-day journey and all I can say is 'so far, so good'. I decided to go with a wig I tried on about a year ago, which was in my closet. It’s synthetic, so it kept the style pretty well in the bag. And I didn't have to do too much except shake it out and put it on. Guess what? I'm a redhead right now! It's funny how color can change your mood (I feel a little sassy). No wig cap because I don't have one at the house. But I used a ton of bobby pins! Throughout the day I felt a little self-conscious, like I had to explain that I have a wig on. But the truth is it actually looks better than my hair does most days. And by the end of the day, my hair looked just as good as when I started this morning!

    Day 5

    On the fifth day, I went blonde. My hair is naturally light brown. Well, actually, it's naturally dark brown. But I've been dying for about five years to a lighter brown. Seriously though, blondes most definitely have more fun! I went with a shorter blonde wig with dark roots because I felt it looks more natural. But, I kinda feel like I look totally unnatural. I’m sure it’s just because I'm not used to seeing this. But everybody seems to love this one. It makes me feel like I look younger.

     

    Day 7 

    Amelia by Envy

    OK… Verdict is in. It’s day seven and blondes definitely have more fun! This week’s wig is really great, but it's a little on the pricey side because it's human hair. The only disadvantage is that I do have to style it. (I confess, I had help styling this one.) It feels amazing. It’s so weird because I still feel like me but every once in a while I catch a glimpse in the window or mirror and it's so shocking how different I look. I really like it, though. I never thought I would like a shorter wig like this chin length bob I’m wearing.

     

    Day 9

    Taryn by Envy

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It’s day nine now and I’m realizing how much the people you know and see on a daily basis really aren’t paying that much attention to how you look. People at my kids’ school and at the office either don't notice a thing or they don't want to mention it. It seems people don't care as much as I thought they would. By now the self-consciousness about having a wig on is completely gone! It's starting to feel normal.

     

    Don't miss our next post in this 4-part series!
