With the temperatures climb, it is getting warmer and warmer, but with the right wig, you can still stay cool. We are receiving lots of emails about ways to stay cool while wearing a hair replacement system.
1. Choose short wig
Wigs are available in a wide variety of styles. Some people may choose long styles for a number of reasons, but these hair pieces are also much hotter. When you are looking for a cooler option, there are plenty of cute short styles to choose from. Try a shorter hairdo or layers to lighten things up. Short wigs make summer a breeze by keeping hair off of your neck and shoulders. In addition, short wigs are lighter weight and are easier to style and maintain.
2. Braid long wig
Something as simple as switching up your hairstyle can make wearing a wig in the summer feel better. Whether you only have long hair pieces or you just prefer longer hair, braiding your wig can be the ideal option for staying comfortable this summer. Try pulling your hair up into a ponytail or u27sing pins to secure hair up and away from your neck. Ponytails don’t often work well for wigs because they can create an unnatural look. Braids look more natural, allowing you to control your longer hair and keep cool.
3. Try a hand-tied wig
If you’re currently wearing a wafted system I urge you to schedule a free consultation to take a look at an all hand-tied hair replacement system. Hand-tied wigs are lighter, the construction is more breathable and it makes a huge difference in your comfort level – especially on hot days.
4. Try a lighter color
Dark hair replacement pieces may be your typical style, but summer is a great time to try something new. Consider buying hair pieces in lighter shades to wear when the weather is hot. The lighter colors won’t absorb the heat of the sun and can create a fun new look.
5. Wear a Cap less Wig
Cap less wigs offer better air ventilation because the cap is designed with open wafting, which provides a cooler and more comfortable wig wearing experience. Cap less wigs are a great way to keep your head cool in the warmer summer months because they are among the lightest wigs available, and the open wafting throughout the cap helps provide maximum ventilation.
6. Avoid direct heat
If you are spending a lot of time outside this summer, it may be difficult to avoid direct sunlight, which can cause damage to wigs. Wearing a hat or a scarf can make a major difference in your comfort level while wearing one of these hair pieces. A cap that’s lightweight and can help wick away moisture will help you feel cooler and more comfortable when you’re out in the sun and heat. A different cap can also allow for more airflow and make your wig more breathable. In addition, don’t store your hair replacement pieces where they will be exposed to excessive heat, such as near a window or in your car
