Finding The Perfect Short Wig

Finding The Perfect Short Wig

When looking for a low maintenance style, synthetic short wigs make up some of the most popular styles that allow women to pop them on and go. Short wigs come in various lengths, from pixies to bobs, and can range in density as well. We’ll cover a handful of our favorites and what makes them so highly sought after.

Pixies have been a trend amongst celebrities since Twiggy came on the scene in the 1960’s. Pixie wigs are a great option for trying out a bold style that’s on trend, but without the commitment of cutting your hair. This type of style offers the lowest maintenance and in most cases, is easiest to style. If you are looking for a cute short wig, we’ve got you covered!

Tab by Ellen Wille, a short precision cut with bold layers, offers a ready-to-wear lace front for natural hairline and monofilament crown for ease of parting. You can wear this pixie slicked or spiked, whether you’re going for a more polished or edgy look. 

Short bob wigs are a timeless style and remain high on the list when you search “short wig styles 2022”. They fit several different face shapes and look great on women of all ages. They also require lower maintenance since they sit right at or above the shoulders, which means less friction and tangling of the hair.

Upstage by Raquel Welch is our best-selling layered bob, exuding sophistication and versatility. Its innovative design features a 100% hand-tied monofilament cap transitioning to hand-tied wefts at the nape, and a ready-to-wear lace front, providing both natural movement and hairline as well as comfort. The Tru2life heat-friendly synthetic fiber allows you to use heat tools so that you can change up your look.
Kristen by Jon Renau is a more casual, mid-length bob with chic, face framing layers. It fits the bill for many women, providing both style and comfort. The open cap keeps your scalp cool, while the Smart Lace™ front mimics natural growth at the hairline.

Short curly wigs provide some of the most natural options, and wavy styles have been especially trendy for several years now. 

Voltage by Raquel Welch is bold, textured and features all-over feathered layers with a wispy bang and flared neckline. With a little Shaping Creme by BeautiMark, its tresses can be styled soft and layered or messy and modern. The cap features are designed to provide full coverage while being lightweight and comfortable. Also available in petite and large cap sizes, as well as an “Elite” version with lace front and hand-tied monofilament top, it’s an extremely versatile option. Not only is Voltage one of Raquel Welch’s personal favorites but it’s an all-time best seller too!

Short wigs with bangs are a fashionable choice that offer effortless styling and oftentimes cooling caps with ultra light comfort and fit. 

Winner by Raquel Welch is a pixie loved for its simplicity and perfect for every occasion. It offers a wispy bang, textured layers and a tapered neckline, giving you coverage where you need it most. The open wefting in the cap creates better air ventilation, which provides more coolness on the scalp. Often called a “shake and go” wig, it’s as easy as it gets when it comes to styling. 

Weighing just under two ounces, Winner is available in a petite and large cap sizes, as well as an “Elite” version with additional cap features.

Wigs with lower density have climbed in popularity as more natural options have become available across all top wig brands. Short low density wigs often have hand-tied features such as monofilament tops or fully hand-tied caps. The lack of permatease allows the hair to lay flatter and achieve a more sleek look, while giving the appearance of natural hair growth from the scalp. Short human hair wigs commonly have these hand-tied features. 

A fan favorite is Applause by Raquel Welch, a luxurious human hair wig with a cap design that gives the ultimate natural look and feel. This layered, short cut enhances all different face shapes and includes a 100% hand-tied cap with a lace front and monofilament top. Human hair allows you endless styling possibilities.
