Humidity sucks, especially when you’re into defined natural hairstyles or bone straight press outs. Sometimes, there’s no anti-humidity/frizz control serum that will help. So what’s a natural hair sister to do? Wigs, wigs and more wigs. Wigs are not only a great protective hairstyle, they are also a great way to style up for a night on the town without the worry of sweat outs and hair frizz.
Tresses Safe and Frizz-Free
Wigs have become the newest and one of the best trends when it comes to natural hair. A lot of women have the misconception that if you’ve gone au natural then wigs are obsolete. I’ve recently made the transition to “wigged” up styles when it’s time for a girl’s night out, mainly because of the irritation of sweating out my natural hairstyle. They’re also perfect for girls who want to experiment with short and long hairstyles, without having to mess with their real hair.
Here are the top 5 wig styles I rock:
Windblown waves and layers. One thing that’s very popular right now is mid-length layers and waves. I love this style particularly because it resembles my own hair when I straighten and layer.
2. Natural Hairstyles, but is that her real hair? Call me crazy, but I like wigs that are big. And when I say big I mean BIG. Big curls and waves. It’s just another way for me to have my hair ”out” without the worry of my actual hair being exposed to the elements. I can easily keep my hair moisturized underneath, but still rock the natural hairstyles I love.
3. Cut and color experiments. Dying hair is a big decision for some of us natural hair sisters. A lot of times I will wear a different colored wig to see how my actual hair would look like. I experiment mainly with colors I’m in question of. Reds, purples and honey brows are usually how I change my hair color, without changing it at all.
4. Short and sweet. I love bobs! But I do not love them enough to cut my own hair into one. Since I am deathly afraid of short hair on my own head, I definitely take advantage of the bobs that made Rihanna popular. Partial wigs and pieces are excellent to replicate the perfect short look.
5. Banging and bobbin’. Bangs, bangs and more bangs. I love the look of bangs on mid-length or long wigs. Furthermore, I’m a big fan of the side-swept Aaliyah type bang. Perfect for date nights or work wear.
There’s no doubt that wigs are versatile and give my natural hair sisters free-reign to switch up their styles.
