  • Wigs are more popular than they were approximately 10 years ago. The fact is that wigs have been around for while. In fact they date way back to the medical times in Egypt.
  • Wigs have been worn for many different reasons from being a status symbol, to keeping warm, as a fashion statement, due to medical reasons and even for more practical purposes as well.
  • These days wigs are more affordable and they are worn by a lot more women than just celebrities. They are available in various sizes. However I would like to focus on the short wigs, just because of the simple fact that there couldn't be anything more convenient than a short wig.
  • A short wig can easily be put on and there are very less chances of it damaging your natural hair. With a short wig you have a great number of colors to chose from and even cuts and textures.

Popular short wigs:

Styling it: It is easy to get this style and it starts with shampooing and conditioning the hair and making use of Grape Seed Oil on hair. Once it is dry (blow dried) mold the hair and prepare it for the wig. Once ready start applying the wig. Now it is time to get creative by using a spray and styling it until you have achieved your desired look.
Here is a listed of few shorts wigs to get you started:
  • Sassy Bob Wig: The sassy Bob wig is usually blonde in color with a swoop covering the eyes making it unique in style.
  • Short Cropped Wig: This is a neatly styled wig with flare. This is a style that would suit in about any office and even for a night out.
  • The Blonde Bombshell: The blonde bombshell is another wig that is all blonde. This is a style that has a cut and tampered look on the left and a longer tresses look on the right. The brows have to be lifted as well which makes it look appear more natural.
  • It's Black, It's White: This is a bob styled black & white which a quite edgy with color blocked style and is styled to perfection.
  • The Mommy Wig: This is a very sophisticated wig and grabs a lot of attention. This is retro style that can be worn by the modern women. This finger waved style can be mixed to a pin curled look with the help of a comb. This is one unique style that will always be fine to wear.
  • Flower Girl Flip: With this wig you can have that all cropped up look. It has those fiery streaks that gives this style that added flare. If you have a round face, then this is one of the best styling options available to you. Although it is good for other face shapes too.
  • The Flipped Wig: This wig is a break from the traditional ones and is almost like a retro styled wig. There can even be custom streaks through the hair that can cause some head to turn.

Wig wearer tips:

  • Be high on confidence: When attempting to style your wig properly it is important for you to have the right attitude. It is really quite simple if you are worrying too much it is likely to make you very fidgety and spoil the wig.
  • Be Creative & Customize to your liking: If you have a picture of your perfect wig in mind, then there is no reason you should not customize it. For example you could take your wig to the hair stylist and get it trimmed or have bangs, or even remove the excess bulk. You should consider your wig as another thing you need to wear besides the clothes.
  • Using care products: Using care products can extend the life of the wig and it will stay looking good and neat all the while. However every kind of wig requires a different care product, for example synthetic wigs require special care products for synthetic hair.
  • Always think ahead: If you are a person that wears wigs all the time, it would be a good idea to stock up on wigs. It would pay to keep two wigs ready to wear just in case something goes wrong while you are washing, styling or coloring the other one.
  • Kitchen tips: For those who wear the wig all the time, even while cooking there is something you need to know. If you have a synthetic wig on, then never open the door to the oven. You may have guessed the reason, which is that a synthetic wig can be subjected to a lot of heat. This means that even the heat from an oven or a boiling pot of water can damage the hair. In general if would be a good idea to remove the wig and wear a scarf or a cap if you must, while cooking in the kitchen.
  • The Synthetic Shine: The synthetic wigs are popular for their shiny look, but for some this is a bit to shiny and at times it does look fake and unnatural. Thus it may be a good idea to minimize the shine by sprinkling a little hair powder on the wig and then brushing through it for a very natural look.
  • Personalize Your Look: If you are the kind who enjoys a more personal look or a specific type of look then continue doing so, even if you are now wearing a wig. For example you can still use a hair band or a scarf or any other hair accessory for that matter. Thus just be as creative as you like and don't let the fact that you are wearing a wig prevent you from doing so.
  • Blending with the natural: At times it is a good idea to have the wigs with the same color as your natural hair. The reason being is that it then becomes possible to blend the wig with your natural hair. The process of blending is simple, it is as easy as pulling out small sections of your own hair along the sides and front. This is possible to do with the help of a rattail comb or even your fingers.
  • Playing it safe: If you one of those who like to play it safe then it is a good idea to chose a wig hair style that is close to your current hair style. This is likely to beneficial in more ways than one. For one it is likely to give you more confidence and even make the transition to wearing a wig easier if you are a new wig wearer. This is only for those who do not wish to venture out of their comfort zone; however for the more adventurous type who like to try something new they have a large collections of styles to choose from.
  • Knowing your measurements: When setting out to buy a wig, (especially the new wig wearers) there is something that you need to know. You need to have the measurements of your head ready and handy so that you do not buy a wig that does not fit. The last thing you want is a wig that does not fit or a wig that keeps slipping off.
  • Hair styling tools: When it comes to styling your hair these days, there are many styling tools to help you with the process. Amongst the tools available are the curling iron and the flat irons that can help you either straighten or curl your hair. This can be done to both human hair and synthetic wigs. However with synthetic wigs there are some limitations since they cannot be subjected to a lot of heat.
