What is “edgy”? Usually, the word references the idea of being on the cutting edge. Edgy breaks away from the norm and subverts the traditional.
With hair, this can mean the style or the color is fresh and new. Sure, a bob haircut is pretty and classic. But what about a bob in a fun shade? It's time to break away from the mold and try something exciting! Here’s a list of our favorite edgy wigs to get kick your style up a notch!
Peachy and Posh
We start out the list with a strong contender. This chic piece is Peachy Keen by hairdo. It’s a great gateway to the riskier bright colored wigs. This wig almost looks platinum blonde at first glance. However, take another look. It’s an adorable peachy pastel pink shade with a dark rooted appearance for a natural style.
It comes out of the box in a stylish straight bob, but looks fantastically funky when curled or crimped (be careful not to exceed 350 degrees!). With crimped strands, pull the top layer into mini space buns. Complete the look with a fun leather jacket over a sequined top.
How brave are you? The last wig was subtly colored, while the Melrose by Forever Young makes a much stronger statement. This long platinum blonde wig boasts bright blue face-framing streaks.
Both the length and color of this synthetic wig require some confidence to wear, but don’t be put off by that - life is too short for boring hair! To avoid clashing, stick to outfits without heavy shades of blue, but the most important thing to remember for pulling off this look is to own it!
Why Not Take Some Risks?
If you have always stuck to a look with length, a short pixie can seem risky, but it’s so worth the leap. Risk Comfort by Ellen Wille gives a feminine edge to the classic close cut. The textured layers of this edgy short hair wig give a spunky touch and fun styling versatility.
You can wear the layers straight or muss them up for a tousled “I woke up like this” look. Turn up the volume on this bold look by trying the Silver Rooted hue. This shade is so cool you’ll have everyone’s eyes on you. Go for muted colors in your outfit to keep the attention on this beautiful wig!
Dare To Have GREAT Hair
Did you know The Pantone Color Institute chose the shade Ultra Violet as the Color of the Year 2018? The year may be winding down, but you can still celebrate the color purple. If You Dare by Raquel Welch is a lavender wig with a rooted look.
The long curled bob is stylish and flatters just about everyone. Purple hair is a favorite look among celebrities including Katy Perry, Kesha, and Ariana Grande. Do you dare? You totally do. Pair this lace front wig with your favorite little black dress.
Perfectly Punchy Pixie
Back in the 1960s, Twiggy’s closely cropped pixie hairdo changed the fashion world forever. Now, the pixie cut will never go out of style. Classic does not mean dated, though. Pixie's can actually be exceptionally edgy! Experiment with different styles and shades to find the perfect look for you. The Short Textured Pixie cut by hairdo is available in traditional shades, but we love it in Glazed Cinnamon.
Spike the layers up and this wig becomes funky and unbelievably cool. The color is just subtle enough that it can pair with any of your edgy style clothing, so try it with everything!
It's All About Angles!
If you’re interested in a short wig that exudes edge right out of the box, try Disc by Ellen Wille. The angled bang on this wig is so chic. Keep this piece sleek, straight, and grazing over one eye for the full effect.
This no-fuss edgy short hair is perfect for showcasing accessories - it absolutely needs to be styled with trendy statement earrings. Tone the earrings down with a plain top and finish off the look with a bold patterned pair of pants or skirt and ankle-length boots!
