It may have been a long winter, but every season has to end. When it does end, we get some long-awaited warm weather. Temperatures above 50 degrees - where have you been hiding? To a new wig-wearer, warmer weather could spell trouble. The inexperienced may assume that higher temperatures make wearing a wig unbearable. If you rock a wig year round, you know it is all about the construction of the piece. Decades ago, without today’s technology, wigs were heavy and lacked ventilation. Today, wigs are practically engineering marvels!
When the degrees start creeping up, go for a lightweight wig! You will want to choose a wig with open weft construction and possibly a lace front for maximum breathability. Plus, don’t underestimate the importance of weight; you won’t be comfortable with a heavy wig on your head in the middle of a heat wave. Below, we list our favorite lightweight wigs. Bonus: all of these wigs weigh less than 3.5 ounces! Go ahead, Mother Nature, give us your best shot. We can take the heat!

“Opulence” is defined as something “drenched in wealth and luxury.” Well, this beautiful wig earns its name. Opulence by Gabor is a gorgeous angled bob with a lace front and monofilament part.
