There are those who love the changing seasons, those who eagerly await drinks in warmed mugs, and cozy thick sweaters.

 

 

 

Yet, even those who don’t appreciate the climate change reach for this one accessory as the temperature plummets, we are talking about scarves, of course.

 

 

 

 

Scarves come in different textures and lengths, add color to an otherwise monotone ensemble and are an effortless way to look chic.  The snug factor makes scarves a favorite addition as chill levels peak.

 

 

 

 

When donning this beloved accessory, wig-wearers face a challenge even the non-attired face. Scarves add heat and friction to the neck area causing the hair in the nape area to knot up. Untangling knotted hair is time consuming and bothersome.

 

 

 

See some of our favorite cold weather picks fashioned to end this unpleasant chore. Instead of dreading the polar vortex and the shivers that accompany it, think about building the best snowman on the block and having your wig look great at the same time.

Gather any remaining ends on the left side of the head and knot them together. Insert two bobby pins vertically, one down from the top and the other up from the bottom. Repeat on the right side, tying ends and then knotting and pinning them.

For those who don’t like to wear an up-do a simple braided look is a chic way to ward off knotting. This style is fabulous as it is a perfect way to wear your wig when you need a wash and set but can’t get to your stylist right away. A highlighted wig will look extra special as the color patterns are woven through each twist in the braid.

 

 

 

The braided pigtail braids might seem most suitable for the tots- to ten crowd, but our favorite version is for the panache and stylish.

 

 

 

Wear two braids loose and not completely symmetrical. This style will have your wig knot free and looking chic.

Accessories for Fall

A different way to accessorize your hair this fall

 

Accessories have made their way into mainstream styles. Barrettes, clips, and bands once thought of as a bridal accessory or for tikes and schoolgirls, hair accessories have made their mark in the world of fashion.

Accessories are a good way to change your look. Hair can get cut, grow out bangs, and cut bangs to change the looks. Those changes don’t lend themselves well with wig wearers; the hair doesn’t grow back so every change is a commitment.

Braids and accessories are nice way to change up your look without commitment.  After years of working with wigs it’s always a surprise to see a style that’s novel and new.

This style is described as “ring braids”. Here’s how to:

 

 

fallbloghairaccessories

 

  •  Grab a two-inch section of hair right at your part, split it into three even sections, and begin creating a classic three-strand braid.

 

  • As you work your way down the hair, slide a single gold ring around one of the three sections and continue the braid to lock it in place. Make sure to space the rings out inconsistently.

 

 

  • Secure braid with an elastic.

Another fall trend that’s different then what we have seen in the past is this bold look showcased by Alexander McQueen.

 

McQueen adorned hair with multi vintage clips and pins. It’s a little over the top for some, but looks just as nice with just one, or try multiple smaller sized pins and clips.

I was absolutely in love with this ornate headband by Miu Miu until I noticed the $550 price tag!

The mix of pearls and crystals merges perfectly for this year’s fall trends, and luckily scoring the internet will yield lower priced versions of this beauty. There is even a step-by-step DIY for those skilled pinterest queens. Still, this lavish style looked perfect in a jean button-down and can be worn to a black-tie affair as well.

Our ponytail wigs rejoiced when they saw this fall’s trend of ponytail cuffs.  Ponytail wigs often get thought of as the dressed-down sort. These Marni ponytail cuffs, and Colette Malouf hair wraps give the ponytail a whole new status.

Which fall styles will you try come fall?

Sombré: The perfect highlight color this fall

Sombré: The perfect highlight color this fall

 

 

 

As the seasons change the urge to try new things and update styles comes along with the change. Styles change from sandals to boots, from tees to coats, and from ice cream to hot cocoa.

The trends of hair styles and hair color are no different. Tones become more muted and less bright. Here is a color change we are really excited about here at Freeda wigs.

 

Sombré

    Ombré it seems is still a ubiquitous trend that isn’t going anywhere. So many find the trend on the wilder side, more flamboyant, fit for the fashion risk takers and the bold.

Enter Sombré; as the name suggests, sombré is a soft, more subtle version of ombré. Sombré is slight lightening of the hair from root to tip, a style that works even with blonde colored hair. It stays within 2 shades of the root color, a small change that makes a vast difference. Sombré says goodbye to obvious roots and thick streaks of color, and hello to fine, understated lift in color.

We love this new trend, perfect for wig wearers not ready to commit to big changes in their wigs. For those who are even more commitment-phobic try rooting- just the slighted darkening of the hair at the roots.
