Wearing a wig doesn’t mean that you have to opt for long locks. There are plenty of short, sassy closure wigs that look edgy and gorgeous. Here are five of the best short wig styles to check out.
Straight Bob with Bangs
The straight bob with bangs is chic and stylish. There are various length options with this look; you can opt for a short bob or a near-shoulder length “lob.” There’s something about the straight bob with bangs that invokes a feeling of supermodels on the runway at New York Fashion Week.
Straight bangs are great for those with angular, oblong, and long faces. Women with high foreheads particularly enjoy the look, as the bangs shorten the visible space. Straight bob wigs are easy to care for and style, and works well with a lace wig style.
Spiky Pixie Cut
For someone who likes a shorter, edgier look but can’t pull it off with their natural hair, the spiky pixie cut is perfect. This is a look that works for all age groups. Younger women love the edgy, retro vibe the spiky pixie invokes, and middle-aged women see it as an opportunity to spice things up.
There are a few different style options for spiky pixie cuts. The straight, tousled look is a little more care-free and easy to manage. For a subtle difference, opt for a apiky look (with longer, thicker accent tendrils) that adds volume and dimension to your hairstyle.
Finding out that Whitney Houston’s iconic curly bob was a wig was a shocking revelation for many. In fact, finding out that most of her hairstyles were attributed to incredible wigs is mindblowing.
One of the most popular vintage vibe looks for African American women are the spiral curls that Whitney made look so good as she stunned the world with her vocals. Look for a textured spiral curl bob wig that adds volume and dimension reminiscent of peak Whitney.
Layered Pixie Cut
The layered pixie cut is a longer take on the pixie and can be a nice transition if you want something between short and long. With a layered pixie, you get a bit more length at the back and can incorporate textured side bangs in front. This provides a little more coverage.
While there are a few ways to do a layered cut pixie, look for a wig that promotes a razor layering technique. This ensures that you’ll retain the volume that makes this look so glam. As you aren’t working on your own hair, you don’t have to worry about keeping your split ends in check from the razor.
Deep Side Part Bang Bob
If you’re self-conscious about having a high forehead, but don’t feel comfortable with the straight bang look, opt for a bob with a deep side part bang. The deep side part starts about two inches from the middle of your head and pulls the hair over and forward to create a side bang.
Not only do wigs with the deep side part bangs frame the face, but they also add volume and an edgy asymmetrical look. As for texture, your options are open. Opt for a straight cut, a wavy look, or layers; these wigs are versatile.
Choosing the right wig can be a challenge. Look for a reputable business that creates high-quality, durable wigs. With the right piece, you’ll be effortlessly stylish.
