5 Reasons Why You Should Try Short Wigs

Short Wigs are Affordable

Not only will you spend less money cutting back on trips to the salon and the purchase of tons of hair care products, short wigs cost less than long hair units. Short wigs also last longer than their longer counterparts. This means with the proper maintenance, you can enjoy the same beautiful hairdo for months. (Even years if you really know what you’re doing!)

Short Wigs are Low Maintenance

Speaking of proper maintenance, did we mention how easy short wigs are to care for?  Hair units with long hair require braiding, hair rollers, or tucking at the end of the evening to ensure they maintain their style. Short wigs are more “throw and go.” Styling also takes less time and effort because the tresses are short. You’ll love saving yourself time in the mornings.

Short Wigs are Long Lasting

Because the strands of hair are not hanging low, this wig type does not easily snag or get in the way during activities. This is one of the many reasons why short wigs tend to last longer than long wigs. With the proper washing and storage routine, you’ll be good to go for months on end.

Short Wigs Give a “Sneak Peek” of the Big Chop.

Thinking about cutting your hair but afraid of the aftermath? “What if I don’t like it?” you ask yourself. As you should - after all if it doesn’t go well you have to wait for your natural hair to grow back. Short wigs give you a chance to see how your face looks with short hair. If you don’t like it, simply taking off your wig is much easier than waiting for hair to grow!

Short Wigs Will Forever Be In Style.

Think Halle Berry. Jamie Lee Curtis. Even Rihanna! Short hair has been a global phenomenon since the 1920s. Each timeless short cut has paved the way for the next. No matter which short look you choose, as long as your lace wig looks natural, you’ll be spot on with current trends.
