Putting on a Wig

resource to get started putting on a wig

If you have never worn a wig before, here is a helpful resource to get started putting on a wig for getting started. The first step in putting on a wig is to choose a wig that looks close to your own hair. The more closely a wig matches your natural hair, the more comfortable it will be to wear. Then, you can experiment with different styles and lookups. Your hairstylist can also recommend wig specialists and give you advice on the right look for your head.

Once you’ve selected a wig, you should know how to care for it. While a synthetic wig is easy to maintain, a human hair wig requires more care. You’ll need to visit a wig shop to have it styled and cleaned. To keep your wig looking great, use a wire wig brush to brush the strands and wig shampoo or conditioner with lanolin. Dry the wig and shake it to remove any excess water.

After deciding on the right size, try to hold the wig with its label in the back. Make sure that the wig cap extends about one inch past the natural hairline. If the wig cap is too tight or slack, it will not look natural. Also, make sure that the ear tabs are positioned forward of the ears, so they don’t cover them.
