The weather is finally starting to warm up after what seemed like the longest winter ever. The birds are chirping, greenery is making a comeback, and your wig is starting to feel a bit heavier than it used to. Do you feel the moisture (I know, I know we hate the word moist but it's what's happening) on your scalp?
It's right about now you're probably wondering how you'll make it through summer wearing a wig. Your coworkers, friends, and even some family seeing you without a wig, just isn't an option for you right now (hugs, that's ok... take all the time you need).
Let's get down to business with some tips for wearing wigs in summer!
First, I want to start with working with what you have at home. If you have a wig you love but its length is making your neck drip sweat uncontrollably, consider getting it trimmed. (Of course, be mindful any alterations made will be permanent)
If trimming your beloved wig isn't an option, I have the cutest short wigs that are sure to keep your neck cool in comparison. You really can't go wrong with my selection of bob styles, pixie cuts, and short wavy/curly styles available in a variety of colors; I know you'll find a wig you love.

Second, if you absolutely love long wigs, you can always style your long wig in a messy bun, ponytail, or braid depending on the construction. (I'm happy to make a tutorial on how to style your wig. Just shoot me a message via my Contact Us page and let me know what you want to see)
I have some new ponytail wig styles and tried & true braided wig styles that are literally so gorgeous on EVERYBODY!
Bonus tip: Wigs with 360 lace look super natural at the nape of your neck. These wigs have lace all the way around the hairline which make them perfect for creating up-dos, messy buns, and cute ponytails.
Third, so this tip is going to help with selecting the right wig to keep you cooler in summer. Wigs with a wefted cap construction tend to be cooler because of the air flow between the wefts. They allow your scalp to breathe which let's be honest, is exactly what you want on those sweltering summer days.
Wigs with a wefted cap also come in lace front style which is great if you want a natural looking wig.
Something else to keep in mind when selecting the right wig for summer is hair type. In general, 100% human hair wigs tend to be heavier than human hair blends (a blend of human hair & premium synthetic hair) which can be uncomfortable in summer. Not to mention 100% human hair will probably get frizzy and tangled from the heat.
I suggest sticking with a human hair blend because for a fraction of the cost you will look just as gorgeous and most importantly cooler (pun intended)!
