After the heat of summer, when you wanted to rip your wigs off your head within 1 minute of being outside, fall is knocking on our door here in mid-Michigan. And it’s our favorite hair-wearing season!
Changing your hair look by wearing wigs is not only fun but it’s good for your wigs. You can extend the life of all of your alternative hair for hair loss if you have more than one to wear. Fall is also a great time to wear hair – summer’s heat and humidity is gone, and yet, winter’s chill winds (which still blow through your wig cap – seems unfair) isn’t upon us yet. Fall is one of the most delightful seasons to experiment with different hair – fall’s warmer, richer colors also lend themselves to a change in hair color. And wigs are SO EASY to change your look.
We recently came across the term “flannel hair” – the cozy, warm shades and tones of hair in the fall from deep strawberry blondes to red and caramel-highlighted browns and auburns – these darker colors, with darker roots, lend themselves perfectly to fall’s cozy layers of flannels. Everyone love sweater weather. Now you can love Flannel Hair weather too!
Human hair wigs can have custom color - so check with your wig stylist about updating your color for fall. Current color trends include rooted colors (darker at the roots, lighter about 2-3” away from the roots, sometimes going to platinum blonde), bayalage (dark at the roots, tapering into a lighter color at the ends of the hair) as well as mixed-blend colors (like the Strawberry Shortcake 27MB shown above.)
