Springtime is right around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited. Springtime is my favorite season for beauty. From pastel colors and the fluorescent pops of neon every few years, this is my favorite season to experiment with my look. However, the one thing I am not that excited about is figuring out what to do with my hair. As currently my winter length is still in full effect, I am forced to make the ever-difficult decision as to whether I want to cut it all off and risk not getting this length back for almost a year - my hair grows incredibly slow - or accept the fact that my hair is going to be unmanageable.
But maybe there is a way I can achieve both. While doing some online research and talking with some friends of mine, I realized I was forgetting on key option: cutting off my hair and using a wig. Now, I’ve worn wigs before, but they have always been cheap, fake, wigs for black women for either a halloween costume or a theater show - and believe me when I say my ‘Idina Menzel’ inspired wig for when I played Maureen in Rent made me look more hobo chic than grunge vibe like I was hoping.
After looking into some options and taking into account the three already emerging spring style trends, I have found three hair pieces that will help you create these spring looks but allow you to retain your natural locks when you want them.
The first look I will be talking about is a mid-length curly hairstyle. Wearing curls in the spring/summer if you live somewhere very humid as I do can be a challenge. A great way to avoid the frizz and humidity, I have found the perfect tousled wig: Editor's Pick by Raquel Welch:
Similarly to the issues with humidity and overall increase in weather temperature as spring and summer approach us, these next two styles are in regards to wanting to have long flowing hair without the worry of having to touch it up everytime you enter or exit the inside or outside.
Are you looking for a long hair illusion? Well then the Illusion by Ellen Wille is for you. This human hair wig is enhanced with Premium Synthetic fiber which will allow for longer lasting color vibrancy and also makes the hair much more styleable and with the addition of these synthetic fibers any style will hold much longer - even through washings!
This wig I have found is perfect for adding some beachy curls or some texture for volume with a curling iron and it is - for me - easier to style than my natural hair. This simple process eliminates much of my morning beauty routine and is unclockable when I am out with friends.
This final long hair style is quite simple, and leaves me feeling carefree and ready for anything. The Zara by Jon Renau is one of the greatest lace front wigs I have come across. It’s layered and natural looking style has softly feathered ends giving it a flirty and feminine style. It is ready to wear right when you unbox it. Running your fingers through it you wouldn’t notice that it is anything but your natural hair.
This wig can be worn up or down! You could also add a headband to give yourself a hippie, bohemian vibe perfect for the upcoming festival season!
