The leaves are changing and falling, football is back on constantly, and pumpkin spice is everywhere – it’s fall! That may mean that you’re switching out your summer wardrobe of shorts and tank tops for your fall and winter wardrobe of jeans, tights, boots and jackets. If you’re changing your clothes and your look for the season, should you change your wig, too? Here are a few tips on how to update your wig for fall and winter.
What’s the Weather?
When considering how to update your wig for the changing seasons, it’s important to consider the weather in your area. If it snows a lot or can be very cold, you’ll probably want a style that looks good under a hat. But remember, one of the best benefits to wearing a wig is that you never have to worry about frizz and a weather ruing your good hair day! However if you live in an area that receives a lot of rain, you may not want to select a long, flowing wig that you’d constantly have to pull back or tuck away.
What’s Your Style?
Another important point to consider when updating your wig is what is your style, or what do you want your style to be. Maybe you’re happy with your current style and you just want something a little different, like lowlights, an ombre look or some layers. Or, maybe you’ve been wearing the same style for years and you’re ready for a change. Being able to change up your look on a dime, with no long term commitment, is another distinct benefit to wearing a wig. When considering a new color, also consider your skin tone and try to stay close (if you’re going for a natural look). Darker tends to be easier to pull off in the fall and winter. If you’re changing the style, especially around your face, consider the shape of your face to help you pick a complimentary style.
How to Update Your Wig
If you have a human hair wig, you may be able to update your look by just taking the wig to a professional hair stylist. A stylist can cut, color and style a wig just like your natural hair. If you’ve been wearing a synthetic wig and think that you’ll want to continue changing your style for the season, maybe now is a good time to try a human hair wig. Or, perhaps you’ll need another synthetic wig or two that you can rotate between. Having a few wigs on hand makes it easy to change a style based on the season or even your mood.
