Best Wigs For Summer

Posted on May 22 2018

Trends are constantly evolving and the beauty world is the largest and most visible platform for these shifts; especially as the seasons change. Living in the south, we are now in the full throngs of summer, and it feels like the perfect time to do something a little different. Thankfully, we have wigs and can change up our look without commitment! 



There are several new trends about to hit the hair color world this summer, but there are three that I have seen popping up that have become my latest obsessions!

Shades of Gold

This color is one of the most versatile and workable for people of any age or color. While blonde hues went drastically warmer in 2017, the golden spectrum should not be neglected this summer! Whether you are adding a bit of gold to brighten your blonde, or some golden flecks to add dimension and shine to a brunette look, golden hues will be the champion of the summer. Gold can be both warm and cool toned, making it perfect for any skin tone.

Caramel Hues

This style is particularly flattering for those who are planning to get a bit of a glow on their skin this summer or those with red, auburn, or brunette hair. Though caramel is a delicious sweet, it can also be the perfect solution to any dull or tired color style you may have.

Acid Dreams

Technicolor has always been a secret obsession - just take a look at my wig storage and you will see what looks like a box of Crayola crayons. A few weeks ago, I saw entertainer extraordinaire Alicia Keys debuting her technicolor box braids in pink, purple, and teal hues. They were gorgeous and - while it gives off a festival-esque vibe - these colors made me immediately think of summer days relaxing on the beach. For those who are looking for a bold change, Hairdo's 16" Human Hair Extension Strips are the perfect choice!

One of the biggest issues in summer can be the dry, dull hair after the winter months. But these brightening, dimension full colors can be the perfect solution to any dull hair concerns.

    I am close to perfecting my summer hair. I have alopecia and have worn wigs for almost 7 years. My first was Tatum by Amore in Spring Honey. I had always coveted long hair that I saw on so many other women, but due to my ever decreasing hair felt I had to wear my hair short to achieve some hint of volume. So I wanted long, but was afraid of the drastic change and thought Tatum would be the perfect in between length. I have learned, through trial and error, that the first area to “wear out” in my wigs is the underside back and the summer heat makes this happen even more quickly. So I started experimenting with wigs that were short in the nape and longer in the front. Another issue I find is with adhesives. My scalp is easily irritated by the tapes and adhesives I have tried, except for “It Stays”. Its the perfect, non irritating, well holding adhesive for me October through April. But in the warmer months, May through September, it melts right off me. Then I heard about the Amore XO collection with silicone on the ear tabs and nape. I purchased the Codi XO in Creamy Blonde and began wearing it May 2017. It was the perfect solution as it really stays on without adhesive. But the bangs just didnt work for me, and the color was too blonde. I wore it for most of that summer but wasnt really happy with the bangs or colour. I kept switching to one of my favorites (that required adhesive) on any day that was a little cooler so the adhesive would not melt off- Opulence by Gabor in Sandy Blonde. I always get so many compliments when wearing Opulence and the cap fits my head as though it were custom made for me, the colour is perfect for summer- very blonde but not too blonde. But, the back wants to slide up when I am active, and the sides want to lift when I try to put on sunglasses or reading glasses, if I dont use any adhesive in those areas. I think the perfect summer hair for me would be Gabor Opulence in Sandy Blonde with silicone on the ear tabs and nape. I recently discovered Jon Reneau Silicone sheets and have ordered one to customize my Gabor Opulence. There is still one draw back. I found with the Codi XO having an inner closed cap that the wefts are sewn on to I could wear it in the pool or ocean and not only did it stay on (even when diving!) no one realized it was a wig because of the closed cap. So, my plan for this summer is to wear my Gabor Opulence in Sandy Blonde with hand sewn silicone ear tabs and nape, and wear my Codi XO when I plan to swim. How I wish Gabor would customize their Opulence to have an inner closed cap and silicone ear tabs and nape like the Amore Codi XO. Or, second best would be if Amore would make a XO style with lace front, in the style of Opulence, in perhaps Vanilla Lush or Sugar Cane.
