4 Tips for Wearing a Wig at the Beach

It's summertime!

It’s summertime!

With the weather heating up and summer kicking into gear, it’s that time of year again for beach trips and pool parties. You may be wondering how to handle and care for your wigs when it comes to these classic summertime activities. Luckily, we’ve got some great tips for wearing a wig at the beach or pool.

Dealing with Heat

Hot summer days can be frustrating when wearing a wig. For many warm-weather activities, like beach trips or hiking, you’ll want to have a synthetic wig that you’ve worn for a long time or a less expensive piece that you purchase just for summer fun. If the heat is still too intense, you may want to consider stylish alternatives like scarves or hats to keep cool.

Packing Wigs

Sometimes, the most frustrating part of a trip is packing your wigs and products without causing a mess to unpack later. Whether it’s an elegant piece for a seaside dinner or a backup wig for hanging out at the beach, you’ll want to roll it neatly, wrap it in net, and place it in a silk bag for safe packing. Don’t forget your products for hair care and styling!

Bring a Backup

If you plan on taking a dip in the pool or at the shore, you’ll definitely want to be wearing a less expensive (or older) wig–and remember that synthetic is best for a beach trip. It can be difficult to care for the wig after a swim, so don’t wear your everyday pieces at the beach. If you wear a longer hairpiece to swim, consider braiding it for easier care later, and be sure to rinse your wig thoroughly and condition it after a dip.

Wig Alternatives

If you’re hesitant to wear a wig in the water or it’s just too hot, there are plenty of stylish options you can wear poolside. A long scarf tied at the back with statement earrings is an on-trend look for the summer, while a large, floppy hat is a great way to hit the beach with style. Bonus: large hats will help protect your face from sunburn!
