It may not be summer yet but if you live in the Cincy-area like we do, it sure feels like it!  Maybe you recently stopped by the Allusions office and we helped you pick out a perfect wig.  You’re incredibly excited about it, and can’t wait to show it off to all your friends and family, but the scorching heat of summer is right around the corner.  Don’t sweat it!  Here are a few tips and tricks to stay cool this summer with your beautiful new hair.

Do NOT use heat when Styling your Do

We all know this timeless tidbit: Don’t apply too much heat!  Just like natural hair, too much heat can cause damage and will cause your hair to dry out.  This is a given.  But this can also cause a lot of unnecessary heat to your head and start to venture to your whole body.  Instead of using a curling iron to style your hair, if you’d like a little change for Memorial Day weekend, place curlers in your wig the night before.  You’ll be stylish and cool (in both senses of the word).  

Try out a new Shorter Style

Our stylists have the skills and passion to style your wig to your exact desired look, but have you ever wondered if “that one look” would work on you?  There’s no better time than now to try.  Many new summer styles, such as the Razor Sharp, the Curly Bob, and the Fuzzy Fringe, are all short and playful, allowing you to look your best, whilst remaining fresh!

Seasonal Hats and Stylish Scarves

When the heat is just too unbearable, and you’ve got to take a small break from your new wig, there are plenty of choices to make with fun hats and scarves.  Lighter materials, such as silk and linen, make the perfect summertime scarf choice.  These materials are essential in keeping the heat out, and providing a stylish alternative to your new do.
