Coolest Wigs for Summer

It's finally summer! This means boat rides, walks on the beach, and longer days. Life is good in the summer. One thing that can ruin the happy summertime mood is heat. No one wants to feel icky and sweaty on the sunny days when you are supposed to be having fun! If you are worried about overheating in the summer because of a wig, then an Open Cap or Capless wig may be a perfect fit for you!

What is an Open Cap?

Open cap or capless wigs are an affordable option that is very similar to the standard/ traditional wig cap. These are made with open light weight wefting on the top of the wig cap. Whereas a standard/ traditional cap has wefting on top, but it is closed off with a lace-like material. There are open spaces between the wefting in open cap/capless wigs to help keep the head cooler, especially in hot or sunny weather. The open cap has superior ventilation, is very light weight, and is durable as well.




  1. Open Wefted Top + Back - Allows superior ventilation for maximum scalp cooling with machine wefting.

  1. Open Ear Tabs - Allows customization with bendable wire.

  1. Adjustable Tabs - Allows the wearer to adjust the circumference.

  1. Velvet Front Hairline/Nape - Allows for increased hairline comfort. Nape area includes two vertical bendable wires which allow for customization.

Now that it is clearer what open cap or capless wigs are, let's dig into some of my personal favorite capless wigs for this summer!


Short Styles

If you want to be as cool as possible, then maybe a short length capless wig is perfect for you. These looks are not only chic for hot days but sophisticated too! Just remember to apply extra sunblock to the back of your neck and shoulders. 😉
