Even though I’m a long-haired girl, there are a ton of synthetic bob wigs that I’d just LOVE to wear.
They are super-cute and perfect for summer, since a bit of breeze in your neck is always great to keep you cool when you wear wigs.
How do I define a bob? To me, it’s a low-maintenance, carefree style that hits somewhere between the chin and collarbone.
I spent some time on VogueWigs.com since at the time of this posting, there are several freebies with purchase.
These are my top 7 picks for totally realistic synthetic bob wigs – which do you love??
Sleek & Natural Density
I’ve my eye on this wig for many years — I love the way it lifts off the face in the front. And the realistic colors. And the fact that it’s a bob but a tad on the longer side.
Play It Straight by Raquel Welch is basically the style I wanted in my mid-20s, but could never achieve.
Whenever I asked for this style, I always got something that was too rounded or could never maintain its shape. Now I realize it’s because my own hair didn’t have enough texture to really hold a style…but I sure complained about it back then. 🙂
Why I love this wig: The longish bang combined with the way it gently lifts off the face looks amazingly sophisticated. Or maybe it’s just Raquel Welch in her stylist specs that gives me this feeling!
Cute & Classic
This is your typical bob in every way. Jon Renau’s Kristen is chin-length and sleek, this lace front wig is a classic.
I love that this hair comes in color 38 “Milkshake”. I’ve been obsessed with that color for a while. I love it because it’s the perfect brown-turning-gray shade.
A girl’s gotta be prepared, right?
Why I love this wig: Aside from my ideal “I’m going gray” color, it’s open-capped. You forgo a monotop for this option (and save some money by doing so!), but it’ll keep you cooler in summer. And Texas where I live is H-O-T.
Cute & Classic…with a Mono Top
I realize that many of you prefer a monofilament top feature (meaning you can part it any way you want and you can see your own scalp underneath) in synthetic bob wigs, so I had to find an option with that.
Erika by Amore fits the bill, and has soft bangs to boot.
As Amore piece was the very first full-time piece I wore, so Amore holds a special place in my heart.
If you want a traditional bob with a realistic scalp, this is a good choice.
Why I love this wig: It has a classic style, but the ends are razored making it a bit more edgy.
OMG, the flips!
I LOVE the flips on this one!
Hair isn’t supposed to be perfect all the time, and quite frankly, some synthetic wigs (bobs or not) look like it.
Angie by Envy has so much texture and oomph and looks like so much fun.
The lace front and mono top will only add to the realistic look. Amaretto Cream looks to be my ideal color match.
Why I love this wig: Hello, the flips.
Gorgeous From All Sides
I’m was kind of shocked that I haven’t seen this one before.
Ellen Wille’s United has softly textured ends (I’m definitely into texture lately). And check out the back of this wig! The back lays perfectly. It’s slightly messy in just the right way.
This piece also comes in two beautiful colors I’ve worn in the past (check out my posts about Mega Mono in Tobacco Rooted and Code Mono in Sandy Blonde Rooted). My absolute favorite color of ANY hair I’ve even worn is Tobacco Rooted — and let me tell you there are SO few Ellen Wille wigs made in that color.
But this one comes in it, and that’s why it’s on my list. 🙂
Why I love this wig: Great color options (for me…is that selfish?), and I adore the ends of this piece.
Sassy, Stacked Bob Style
First of all, I love this blond color. I wish the swatches on the site did a better job of explaining the color, but I love this on the model.
This style is also slightly stacked in the back, which gives your timeless bob style a modern flair.
Opulence by Gabor has a mono part and a lace front (both important to me).
This wig, like one of the wigs above, also comes in two very cool gray blends. I wish more wigs came in gray since so many of us will be transitioning someday.
I think gray is so elegant!
If I were to pick a color for my non-graying current self, I’d go with GL10-12. This is more of a blended brown with lighter highlights.
Textured, Layered Synthetic Bob Wig
Rene of Paris Zuma wig is beautiful! I love the texture on this synthetic bob wig. It comes in a few different colors which I’d like to try (Honeycomb Brown, anyone?).
Bonus! This swingy bob has a lace front so you can style off the face if you want to.
Check old the model’s pics. She’s wearing Rose Gold, and it’s totally modern looking that the nape of the neck is a darker color.
Why I love this wig: The ends of it are razored/textured in a way that looks exactly how finer hair looks. Rene of Paris Zuma is my favorite of the bobs.
Which of the Synthetic Bob Wigs Do You Love?
I’ve been thinking about synthetic bob wigs as we head into summer more and more. The temps have crept towards 90 the past few days, and a shorter style sees so appealing.
