How to... wear wigs

Are you caught in a beauty rut or are you yearning for something a little bit different? With hair extensions and wigs, you can create some fun and funky looks.

Woman wearing blond wigStep 1: Go blonde

They always say, "Blondes have more fun." So why not grab a blonde wig and find out? Raven hair beauties may enjoy being blonde for a night or two. Select a blonde wig in the opposite texture of your natural hair for some real drama. If you have board-straight locks, go ultra curly and vice versa.

Step 2: Add some color

If you are considering dyeing your hair but don't want to try permanent color quite yet, experiment with wigs in different shades to see what colors work well with your skintone. Head to your local wig store and spend the afternoon trying on different styles and colors until you find the one that is right for you.

Step 3: Pony up

Hair clips are a quick way to add length or thickness to your hair. With these clip-on extensions you can add a pony tail almost instantly. Though they aren't as beautiful as the more permanent extensions, they are very affordable and reusable.

Step 4: Experiment with length

If you have never been able to grow your hair out beyond your shoulders, hair extensions maybe just what you are looking for. With quality extensions, no one will be able to tell that the hair isn't your own. Head to a reputable salon that specializations in extensions. They look very natural and you can style your hair however you like. The downside is they are somewhat expensive and can take a long time to put in. Bonded hair extensions are not recommended if you have a sensitive scalp.
