How To Wear A Wig:
Wearing a wig for the very
first time might seem like a daunting thing to do, but don?t worry! It?s
actually easier than you might think. Wigs are designed to fit your head
perfectly & they are adjustable, stretchy and made from soft materials to
assist in a long and comfortable wear. To make wearing your new wig as easy as
possible, just follow these simple steps:
Style your wig a little!
It's so much easier to get your wig looking fabulous if it's on a head or in
your hand. Shake it out a little, lightly style and get it looking how you
If you have your own hair, it's important to secure it up and out of the way. Even
if you have very short hair, a wig cap is a very helpful. If
you have a lot of hair, sectioning it into several pieces is a good plan to
avoid having lumps or bumps under your wig - curl up and pin sections of hair
to the side of your head, like a spiral. Then place the wig cap over the top of
your head & slide it back as far as you can, generally right to your hairline.
If you feel the need, you can also slide in a hairpin here and there to lock
the cap in place. If you do not have any hair, a wig cap will provide comfort
during the day and protect your skin from rubbing.
Once your hair is nice and
safely tucked away, you're ready to apply your new wig! Starting at the front
of your wig, place the front of the wig against your forehead and slide the wig
back and down over the back of your head ? The back of the cap should sit snugly at the nape of your neck where your own hairline finishes.
Ensure your wig is centered
and on correctly by feeling the area on the temple area in front of your ears. Your wig at the front should be worn along your natural
hairline, or just in front for a lace front wig. Wigs usually have an
adjustable velcro or hook system in the nape area.
If your wig feels too loose
or too tight, remove it and adjust to suit your head shape.
