“Today, wigs are much more than simply a solution to hair loss; they’re a form of self-expression.” Building a wig wardrobe allows you to try different cuts, colors, and textures—AND turn a few heads in the process. And these tried-and-true tips can get you started.
Choose Quality Over Quantity
Avoid the temptation to buy a lot of cheap wigs and start with two or three well-made ones that fit YOUR lifestyle. ENVY’s shake-right-out-of-the-box-and-go Synthetic Styles are great for those with little time to spend on their hair. If changing your style often is essential, consider 100% Human Hair or our exclusive, lower-priced EnvyHairTM blend. Like natural hair, both can be curled, straightened, and blow-dried. (And unlike natural hair, they can be styled ahead of time.)
Lastly, mix classic, and on-trend looks the same way your wardrobe does. The NEW AMY is a sophisticated way to get in on the edgy asymmetrical trend—without ever cutting your hair.
Shop With Shape in Mind
You know which clothes flatter your figure—now find those wigs that best suit your face shape. You can balance a pear-shaped face with styles that give the appearance of width at the temples. While long, layered, and wavy styles can help soften a square face
If there’s one universally flattering style, it’s “The Bob” (which has been around for over 100 years). The ENVY Manufacture has 38 to choose from. The Bob is the perfect transitional day-to-night style. “The Bobs” are created using a breathable French lace base with late nights in mind- they are very lightweight and effortless. Face-shape “rules” still apply, with sharp Bobs (like Carley) best for oval faces and those with side parts (like Brittaney balancing heart-shaped ones.
Think Outside Your Shade
While everyday wig-wearers often opt for shades close to their own, ENVY’s rooted colors give you the confidence to experiment—offering a multidimensional look, so natural people will think you came from a salon.
Always envied redheads? When picking one of ENVY’s four multidimensional reds, consider your skin’s “undertone” (cool, neutral, or warm) AND your overall skin tone. Cool undertones work best with ginger or golden-strawberry shades (like Cinnamon Raisin), while people with warm undertones or darker skin tones should avoid golden shades and opt for bolder, brighter reds (like Envy’s Dark Red shade). Neutral undertones look good with most reds—especially burgundy or orange ones (like Lighter Red).
Want to make the same “silver” style statement Lady Gaga and Rhianna have (without dying your hair)? ENVY’s four greys range from the chic salt-and-pepper Sterling Shadow to the perfectly platinum Light Grey.
If your self-image is irrevocably tied to a specific color, you can still shake things up. A natural sandy blonde, for example, can channel her inner Marilyn Monroe with ENVY’s rooted Platinum Shadow.
You’ve Got Special Occasion Dresses for upcoming Winter into Spring?
Buy a special occasion wig! While the “Supermodel Blowout” trend will continue at salons this winter (low humidity a +), you can get this bombshell look anytime with our NEW CHRISTINE. And the razored layers and bangs of our NEW AMBER will add contemporary chic to any holiday event.
Take Care (Whatever You Wear)
Finally, implement a regular maintenance routine, washing and conditioning your wigs every 5th wearing (or as needed). And only with products specially designed for your wig’s fibers.
When carefully chosen and cared for, a wig wardrobe can expand your definitions of beauty and personal style. Envy Products continue to redefine what’s possible in natural-looking wigs).
