Choose a Wave Pattern

The number one wave pattern for vacation wigs and extensions is wavy.  You can choose between the tightness of the curl by comparing to your own pattern.  If you choose extensions and have relaxed hair a looser wave will work best for both wigs and extensions.  If you have natural or transitioning hair, picking a curly or kinky texture will blend perfectly.


Extensions can help you go from day to night with little effort. They will take a little more effort than wigs and braids but the versatility is endless.  You could have beach waves during the day and straighten your extensions for a sleek evening look.

Hair tip:  Before you dive in, soak your hair with fresh water. Extensions are naturally drier, so they soak up a lot of water very quickly. If they’ve already absorbed the fresh water, then it will receive less damage from the salt water.




Whether you’re a pro at lace fronts or a novice on wigs all together.  Wigs can help you change your look flawlessly.  So, for instance you wanted a beach wave for poolside drinks but long sleek locks for dinner. Wigs can help you change things fast and give you more time to have fun.
