Wigs' Care

1. How to Wear A Wig?

You need 7 steps:

  • Step 1: Hold your wig at the nape (where the label is) with both hands.
  • Step 2: With your head tilted forward slightly, position the wig above your eyebrows and slip the wig on to your head, starting from front to back in a forwards-backwards motion.
  • Step 3: Now, push the front of the wig toward the back, until it’s placed slightly under your natural hairline.
  • Step 4: Using the ear tabs found on both sides of the wig, centre the wig by placing the tabs in front of the ears, but be sure not to cover them!
  • Step 5: Adjust the wig according to the kind of part you want to achieve – some wigs have pre-made partings that you can’t change, so you will have to play around with it until you get to your desired style.
  • Step 6: Secure your wig using wig tape, a wig gripper, a headband, wig clips, or bobby pins to prevent your wig from slipping.
  • Step 7: Once you feel comfortable with your wig’s position, you can tidy the look by tucking in stray hairs and voila! If the wig feels tight or too loose, use the adjustable tabs at the back of the wig to fit the wig to your head.

2. Wearing Different Types of Wig Caps

The type of wig you choose will influence how you can wear your wig. Here are a few key points:

Standard cap wigs can be brushed in different ways but the style is basically set. The part cannot be changed.

Lace front wigs allow you to brush the wig away from your face due to the natural looking hairline. This allows you to wear styles that expose the hairline. For updos, a lace front wig is strongly recommended.

Monofilament wigs allow you to change your part, offering more styling versatility. You can wear your wig in many styles with a monofilament wig.

3. How to Style A Wig?

     1. Styling Tools:

Your fingertips and a spray of cold water are essential styling tools. Use only brush and combs that are designed for wigs. Regular hairbrushes can cause over stretching of the hair and damage to your wig.

      2. Ready and go

Our synthetic wigs have "style memory". This means that they retain their style even after they have been washed. For this reason, they require very little styling. To restore the original style, simply shake the wig. If the style is still looking a bit "tired," you can spritz it lightly with a spray bottle of water and work the hair with your fingertips. A spritz of water will also remove any static electricity. Do not comb or brush the hair when wet.

    3.Hair Styling Variations:

Your wig was designed with a basic style but the variations you can achieve are limitless. To add height, gently lift with a wig comb. For additional volume, gently tease or back comb and then smooth the surface hair over the teasing. To achieve a special look or to define your hair style, hair gel or spray is an essential styling tool.

For curly or wavy hair styles, if you want your style perfectly, simply mousse, hand scrunch and pick the style into curls. For straight hair styles, simply mousse and work the hair with your fingertips. Your wigs can be returned to its basic style by washing it and allowing it to air dry.

     4. Cutting Your Wig

Your wig comes with a basic style, but it can be cut and shaped by a professional hair stylist to customize the look. This is a great way to make the wig uniquely your own. Often, a little trim on the bangs and a little thinning here or there can make all the difference. Everyone has a different face shape, a different forehead length, and different style preferences. To achieve the most flattering look for your unique face shape, the wig should be cut while you are wearing it.

     5. Restyling Your Wig

For human hair wigs, you can restyle it, but it can shorten the life span of the wig and make it dry and ad messy. Anyway, getting satisfactory wigs is more important.
