Rotating Wigs Is a Great Way to Express Yourself (AND helps Wigs Last Longer)

While wig-wearers are advised to swap out their wigs regularly, we know some of you can’t imagine wearing anything other than your favorite go-to wig. But these simple tips can help you expand your wig wardrobe with confidence.

Face Facts.

It can be hard to verbalize why your wig suits you so well—until you learn that certain styles DO work better with certain faces.  Wear DESTINY almost daily? If you have a square face, the softening effect of its piece-y bangs may be the reason. And while oval-faced fans of KRISTA find it super-flattering, most may not know the secret is in the long layers!

To get to the bottom of why YOUR fave wig suits you so well, watch our “Best Style for Your Face Shape” video.

Determine What You Love Most.

Is it the breathable Open Top design? The flexible part? Or the layered bangs that complement your specific face shape? When you’ve listed the three criteria most important in your current go-to-wig, you’ll know what to look for in second or third.

Stay True to Your Natural Color.

When people stick to a tried-and-true wig, it’s often in the same tried-and-true color as their natural bio hair. It makes the fact that they’re wearing a wig less conspicuous. AND, because a person’s bio hair color naturally complements their skin tone, choosing wigs in that same color will do the same.

Consider Your Lifestyle.

If you’re wearing the same wig almost every day, one can assume it fits your lifestyle. But it’s always a good idea to add one or two lifestyle criteria to your list. If you often go straight from work to business dinners or dressier events, you’ll want some alternating wigs that offer day-to-night up-do flexibility, like BROOKE or VERONICA.

And extremely active wig-wearers should opt for the hand-tied invisible hairline of our LACE FRONT styles, which allow you to pull/tie hair back when running or playing tennis (while never giving your secret away).

Experiment With Texture.

Married to a specific length? Many wig-wearers are… especially those who don’t want to give away their wig-wearing secret by going from pixie to long layers overnight. Choosing alternate wigs that are similar in length to your go-to wig but a different texture (curly vs straight) can have the same effect as a woman styling her own bio hair. Switch out JADE’s flipped-up Lob for CHLOE’s lazy waves or EMMA’s edgier, tighter  curls. And when you choose EMMA—or any of our EnvyHair™️ styles as an alternate wig—you’re really getting alternate “wigs”—thanks to its unique blend of 30% Human Hair/70% heat-friendly synthetic fibers that can be curled, straightened, and blow dried up to 285° F.

Is TIFFANY Your Go-to Wig?™️

Conservative yet fashionable with an extended nape for neck-hugging style, TIFFANY remains one of ENVY’s top-selling styles. “I have at least 5 in the color sparkling champagne,” confessed one fan! Those looking for a little more variety can check out SHARI or JACQUELINE. Both have the same gossamer-like Open Top construction and wispy bangs.

For a little more edge, BILLIE offers the pixie length you love, in an on-trend asymmetrical cut. And its EnvyHair blend of human hair and heat-friendly synthetic fibers allows you to curl, flat iron or blow dry it just like bio hair.™️

Thanks to the amazingly natural look of today’s alternative hair, it’s the perfect time to invest in some alternate wigs! Who knows?  You could have your go-to… times two!

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.”

Words of Wigdom™
“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.”

Words of Wigdom™
“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.”
