Half Wigs with Bangs

It has come to our attention recently that hair manufacturers are producing a new line of products called half wigs with bangs.
These new wigs have the cap size of a regular half wig but have the front bangs of a regular full cap wig.

Listed below are the features of such a wig:
-cap size: 3/4
-full front or side bangs
-comes with combs for secure attachment

So who would benefit from wearing a half wig with a bang?
  • people with small or petite size head
  • people with very high forehead or hair line receding back
  • people seeking instant change of style
What are the advantages of wearing half wig with bangs?
  • the wearer should not worry about blending their own hair in the front, as the bangs will cover it
  • undetectable style. In general wigs with bangs look more natural and are harder to detect
  • instant style change. These wigs require minimum prep time. They are easy to put on and provide an instant change of hair style.
Below are shown samples of half wigs with bangs.

The manufacturer Janet Collection has named their series Easy Wear.

The manufacturer Isis Collection has named their series Bang Plus.

And the manufacturer Femi Collection has named their series Easy Cap. In this case the half wigs can also be worn as draw strings/ pony tails. They are very versatile.

Summer Wigs Top Picks

What are some of your criteria for selecting a proper wig for the summer?
Here are our suggestions and selections for summer wigs based on color, length and flexibility.

1. Summer colors for summer wigs

Good colors for the summer are usually 2 to 4 shades lighter than your winter colors. We suggest to try sun streaked colors such as 4/27 or 4/27/30 (FR or FS combinations)

Illustarted to the left is color FS4/27/30 (medium brown base with strawberry blong and light brown highlights). This color appears warm and still natural looking.

If your skin tone allows it, you can even go lighter with colors such as 24-27 or F2216, F1010.

2. Summer wigs and lenght

What is the perfect length of a wig for the summer?

Most people prefer to go shorter for the summer as the humidity and heat can make an impact on long styles.

We recommend medium to short styles with wispy bangs.

If short boy cut styles do not suit your face shape, then try a medium bob wig.
You can try with bangs or without bangs. Summer also gives you the opportunity to play with flowers, scarves and other hair accessories. Be creative!

3. Summer wigs and flexibility:
Summer wigs need to be well ventilated to allow maximum air to flow through. There are wigs that prevent bacteria formation and deodorize. These wigs are perfect if your head tends to sweat a lot.

As far as flexibility, we suggest styles that are 2-in-1 or 3-in one, such as the ISIS Collection BP and TP styles. Those styles can be worn as half wigs or draw strings.

Tips for Wearing Wigs- Healthy Scalp

Why is it important to maintain a healthy regime for your scalp when you wear wigs?

  1. Avoid bacteria formation and skin irritation
  2. Avoid dandruff
  3. Avoid hair loss and hair thinning
If these reasons are enough for you, follow these tips to maintain healthy scalp under your wig:

  1. Never leave your hair wet under a wig! Dry your hair completely before applying the unit.
  2. Wear a wig cap! Wig caps not only help in managing your own hair under the wig but also can prevent traction and irritation from the wig's construction.
  3. Wash your own hair regularly! If your hair tends to get oily quick, or if you exercise and sweat a lot under your wig, you should take the time to wash your hair on regular basis. Do not let bacteria form. If you have sensitive skin, use shampoo designed for sensitive skin (Jonhson's baby shampoo is always a good choice). If you suffer from dandruff, use a special shampoo (Fructis has a new anti-dandruf product out).
  4. Moisturize your scalp! Do not let your scalp skin dry out. Use a few drops of virgin olive or natural organic oil and massage it into your skin every time before you wash your hair.
  5. Let your skin breathe! Take off your wig nighttime, do not wear wig for excessive time without removing the unit from your head.
