Wig.com Reveals Top Picks for Scorching Summer Hairstyles

From Color to Cut, Wig.com Stylists Help Every Woman Find Her Perfect Poolside Style for the Summer Heat

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - With beach season fast approaching, hair styling experts from Wig.com have just released predictions for what will undoubtedly be this summer's most scorching styles. Several factors contributed to Wig.com's list of must-have summer hair fashion, including current red carpet and celebrity hair trends, the need to keep things simple and easy during the summer, but most importantly the desire to shake off the winter blahs and do something new and fresh this season.

"From swimming at the beach to lounging poolside, summer is about simplicity and fun," said Colleen Cheney, chief hair fashion consultant, Wig.com. "But, extreme heat and humidity certainly play a role in summer hair styles. Most women don't want to use flat irons, curling irons and other heated styling tools during hot summer months."

Led by Colleen, Wig.com's team of stylists have noticed many simple, fun and fresh looks coming up for summer at award shows and on the runway that have influenced their top five picks for this summer.

Highlights -- An easy way to get a sun kissed look early in the season, highlights are a great way to add freshness to any color. The key is adding face framing highlights that are just one to two shades lighter than your natural color for an effortless, bright look that will have you surfer chic for your first day on the beach.

Easy-breezy add-ons -- Summer is the perfect time to experiment with completely new styles. The best way to keep up with the trends and stay away from the flat iron and blow dryer this summer is to embrace add-ons and extensions; popular looks include fashion headbands, ponies and clip-ons.

The "Lob" -- With its ease and versatility, it's no surprise that this cut has been popping up everywhere. The one length, shoulder-skimming cut allows enough length for an updo but is short enough to be a cute style that doesn't require much fuss -- a sure fire way to streamline your beauty routine this summer.

Red, Red, Red -- Redheads have been popping up all over Hollywood, and beauty reporters and bloggers can't stop gushing over the shades of copper, auburn and strawberry celebrities are donning. Going red is a flirty and fresh way to spice up your color during the summer heat. Not ready to make the commitment to color -- take a test drive with a wig!

Embrace Natural Texture -- Summer is the time to let your hair's natural texture shine, and a long, layered style compliments natural waves and curls extremely well, giving you a glamorous undone look.

"The hair and fashion at last week's Met Costume Gala definitely played a part in setting the tone for the next few months of style trends," continued Cheney. "Our recommendations are about transforming those looks from red carpet to everyday life."
