How To: Put Your Wig On Correctly.

When your wig arrives it's already styled. With just a small shake and fluff, you can have your wig looking ready to wear in just a few minutes. Let’s go through the steps.

Preparing your hair before putting on your wig. 

Wig liners are what I’d recommend for those with, or without hair. They can be used to secure all lengths of hair and they’re easy to use. If you have little or no hair the best way to prepare is with a wig liner. For short hair, you can simply brush it back away from your face. And, for longer hair, just make flat pin curls out of sections of your hair and pin it up. Remember to distribute the sections evenly to avoid bumps and bulges. 

Preparing your wig.

It’s important to only use styling tools that are designed specifically for wigs, otherwise you risk damaging the wig. First, cup your hands inside the wig and shake it to loosen the fibres. If your wig is a straight style, you can use a wig brush to gently brush through it. If your wig is styled in curls, use your fingers or a pic-comb. As you fluff your wig with either your fingers, a pic comb, or wig brush, you will notice the wig will begin to look fuller and take on the appearance of the style you ordered.

Putting your wig on.

Using both hands, hold the wig by the nape where the label is. Tilt your head slightly forward and put the wig on in a front to back motion.

Position the front of the wig above your eyebrows to slip the wig on like you would a shower cap. Move the wig in a front-to-back motion to place it correctly on your head. 

Push the front of the wig back until it rests slightly below your natural hairline. Centre the wig by positioning the ear tabs on both sides in front of your ears. When the wig feels comfortable, tuck in any stray hairs.

If the wig feels tight or too loose, use the adjustable Velcro tabs at the back of the wig to fit the wig to your head.

Styling your wig.

Once you have the wig in place, you can style it as you like. Only use wig styling tools and products, including hair spray and mousse, that’s made specifically for wigs. Products made for natural hair instead of wigs can damage your new purchase.

And that’s it! Any questions reach out, I’d love to help. Book a consultation today and we can get started on finding you the perfect wig.
