Quick and Easy Sheital Styles to Keep You Cool All Summer Long

The summer heat can be brutal, and for some women, wearing a sheital in this climate can be unbearable. The key to wearing a wig in hot weather is making sure the cap is lightweight, breathable and made with thinner density. The less hair the wig has, the lighter it will feel on your head, and the easier it will be to pull back into a pony or off your face.

Recently, many different types of caps, with hair sewn in different directions to create lighter weight, and more comfortable wigs, have become more popular. A lace wig will always be lighter and cooler to wear than the traditional skin top wigs. Currently, the lace wigs are being made even lighter and thinner than ever before, so they can easily be pulled into a pony, or pulled back for a half up half down look, making them even more comfortable and easier to style.

Kippah and pony falls have always been a popular option for the summer, and are gaining even more popularity now that they are made with a lace option. Clients are finding the lace top option to be the lightest feel on their head, and are more comfortable than other options available.

A ponytail is easy, and takes just a few seconds to pull all your hair up off your neck. Tie a scarf, or put a cute hair-tie around the pony and you’re all set to go. This look can easily be archived with any pony wig, fall or a kippah fall.

A top knot is my go to when I want to keep hair off my face. A top knot can be worn with your hair half up/ half down, or with all your hair pulled up. If you want to wear it half up, a regular wig/ fall will work, but if you want to pull it all up, a pony wig/fall will work best.

I love doing a messy low bun underneath a baseball cap, or on any hot day that I just want that messy effortless look. Amazingly, almost any wig, fall or kippah fall will work well to create this look. If you have an existing wig that is too long and heavy, you might want to consider thinning it and using it to achieve this look.

Braiding hair in any type of braid keeps the hair together, preventing it from falling on the neck. If there are short hairs in the front of the wig, putting them into a braid will make them invisible, and prevent them from falling into your face.

Finally, a low rise chignon creates an effortless yet chic look. Gather all your hair into a low pony. Fold your pony over, and secure it with a decorative clip. You can leave soft tendrils around your face for an instant glam look. This style will easily work for any lace top wig, fall or kippah fall.
