Six Hairstyles You Need to Try This Summer

How long have you been sporting that same hairstyle? No matter how great your look is, sometimes you need a little change to keep life interesting. Summer is a great time to shake things up—try out something a little new, a little sassy. The following styles are sure to keep you fashionable and cool in this sweltering summer heat.

1. The Bob

Amelia-01This effortlessly chic look never goes out of style. Popularized in the 1920s, the bob has lasted through the decades because of its versatility—short bobs, long bobs, stacked bobs…they look good on just about everyone. Looking for this style in an Envy Wig? Lucky you—we have several to choose from! For a classic bob, you can’t go wrong with Abbey, Amelia, or Kimberly. Or add some drama with the be-fringed Scarlett.


2. Long Layers

Brianna-01-2If you’re looking for a more edgy or organic look, this is the perfect style for you. The face-framing layers are flattering on celebrities and us everyday women, alike. Envy’s Bobbi, Brianna, and Celeste styles showcase this dramatic, versatile ‘do…and they can be taken from day to night in a snap! Sweep them into an elaborate updo or add a stylish headband or barrette to customize the look to suit your particular lifestyle.


3. Pixie Cut

Miley-01If you want to keep cool while still looking stylish, a pixie is the way to go. This classic hairstyle is a must-have for these sticky summer days. Not only does a pixie help a woman exude confidence, but it’s a universally flattering shape. Looking for that perfect pixie to complement your breezy summer attitude? Give our classic pixie styles Jo Anne and Kris a try. Want something a bit edgier? Spiky Kitana and razor-sharp Miley are the ones for you!


4. Wispy Bangs

Carley-01Wispy bangs make for such an effortless, chic look. Not only do they emphasize your cheekbones, they’re also great for women who may want to minimize a prominent forehead. And talk about versatile…keep them blunt and eyebrow-skimming for an edgier look, or sweep them to the side to add some romance. Carley by Envy is perfect if you’re looking to pair a face-framing lob with wispy bangs. If you want something with more body and volume, Danielle will send you out the door with a bounce in your step…and in your ‘do!


5. The Lob

Taylor-01The “Lob,” short for “long bob,” has become insanely popular in recent years (we even devoted an entire blog post to it awhile back). You can see this timeless style floating down the runways during fashion week and on celebrities as diverse as the fierce Rihanna, the sweet-faced Amy Adams, and the trendsetting Jennifer Aniston. Take the plunge, and give this fashionable style a try! Envy has a Lob for every look—go classic with Petite Paige, edgy with Taylor, or voluminous with Jade.


6. Pin Straight

McKenzie-01Even in the heat of summer, there’s something relentlessly cool about long, stick-straight hair. Pull it back into a low ponytail for a carefree, sporty vibe, twist it into braids for a sweet farm girl look, or let it fly in all its shiny, natural splendor! We don’t know of a single woman who hasn’t longed for this style at some point in her life. Want to try straight tresses on for size? Envy’s McKenzie and Taryn styles should do the trick.

The secret to a perfectly natural look is a slightly imperfect part, says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Gently reposition strands along the part line or snip a few wispy pieces using manicure scissors—AND some restraint—for a slightly messy part that looks all your own.”

“Throughout my 20-year career, women’s comfort has always been at the top of my mind,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton, whose Stretch Cap Technology hugs the perimeter while eliminating pressure points for maximum comfort.”

For first-time wig wearers, “The trick is to stay close to the color of your eyebrows,” notes Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. If not, “then consider dyeing your eyebrows to match your chosen wig color.”

“Few people know that wigs can be styled just like natural hair—and that most hairstylists are happy to give your wig a custom cut,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Trimming bangs and shaping to your exact specifications can help make your wig indecipherable from your own natural hair.”

“The “Grey Hair, Don’t Care” trend—which saw women embracing their grey—is stronger than ever. And not just with the over-50 crowd. “Silver is chic, edgy and looks great on almost anyone,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton, who offers nearly every EnvyHair™ and synthetic style in 3 multi-dimensional grey shades.”
