HOW TO WEAR & STYLE YOUR SYNTHETIC HAIR WIGS

 

How to Put Your Wig On

Starting Out
Gently shake the wig to fluff the style. Identify the front and the back of the wig. The label always goes in the back. Notice the adjustable tabs inside of the wig. They can be adjusted if the fit is too loose or too tight.

Orienting Your Wig
Place your wig on a flat surface in front of you so that you are looking down inside of the wig. The label should be at the top (the back of the wig).

Putting Your Wig On
Grasp the wig by the ear tabs on the side of the wig and flip the wig over the top of your head. Slip the wig on, starting at the front hairline and working towards the back. The front of the wig should sit where your hairline is (approximately 4 finger widths from the top of your eyebrows). Gently rock the wig back and forth until it is sitting on your front hairline.

Be Gentle
Do not grab the wig by the hairs, but handle the wig from the base of the cap. Be especially careful of hand tied areas and do not pull on these areas when putting on your wig.

Fit
Your wig should feel secure, but not tight. Adjust the tabs inside of the wig to achieve a comfortable fit.

 

How to Keep Your Wig From Falling Off

Keeping your wig on is something many women worry about. Fortunately, this is not something you should be concerned about. There are adjustable tabs inside of your wig that allow your wig to fit securely. For women who want additional security, the following products have been helpful to many customers:

Cushion Band
This is a gel filled headband that not only keeps your wig securely in place, it also relieves pressure points, making your wig more comfortable to wear.

Wig Gripper
This adjustable headband is made of a fabric which adds friction around the hairline. This allows your wig to stay securely in place without slipping.

Toupee Clips
Toupee clips are secured to the wig and then clipped into your own hair to hold your wig in place.

Adhesives and Tapes
Double sided tape or roll on adhesives can be applied to hold your wig in place.

Scarves
On a windy day, a scarf can be tied over your head and underneath your chin to hold your wig in place.

 

How to Style Your Synthetic Wig

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

Shake 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.

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 "spikey" look or to define your hair style, our liquid moose is an essential styling tool. For curly or wavy hair styles, simply mousse, hand scrunch and pick the style into curls. For straight hair styles, simply mousse and work the hair with your fingertips. Your wig can be returned to its basic style by washing it and allowing it to air dry.

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.

Restyling Your Wig
To completely restyle your wig, we recommend taking your wig to a professional stylist or wig salon.
