Wearing your wig
How do I put on and wear my wig?
Take your new hairpiece out
of its packet and keep in mind to give it an good shake to let air
filter through the wig and help open up the fibres. The wig may tend to be a bit flat in
the packaging right after shipping, so doing this can make your new hairpiece
spring into life. For those who have or use a wig cap, place this on
your head first. Ensure the front of the wig cap is sitting on your
natural hair line, and that all your hair is concealed under the cap.
If you have long hair and you do not have a wig cap, twist your hair
into a tight French Twist and pin it to the crown of your head. You
may use bobby pins to stick your own hair down flat to your head. The basic idea is to provide a smooth
and even base for the wig to sit on.
Hold the wig in front of you with the tags located at the top. Lean slightly forward and place the front of the wig against your forehaed near the hairline then tilt your head and the wig backwardand placing it on your head. Slide your fingers along the rim of the cap, one to the front of the wig and one to the back, making sure as you go that the cap is covering all of your head. The wig really should not cover your ears. You will find two small tabs on either side of the wig, they must be positioned to ensure that they're equal on both sides and in front of your ears. This will ensure that your wig is on properly and it is these tabs that will indicate the position of the wig rather than the part, as a side parting wig can be easily miss-fitted if you try to use the part as a guide to its positioning. The front of your wig really should be positioned ideally at, or slightly behind, your natural hairline. You can find adjustment straps inside the back of your wig, and they can be used to tighten or loosen the wig for a more comfortable and secure fit.
Further Stying Your Wig to Suit
Don't despair if your new wig doesn't look perfect at first, as
you might need to style it a little to achive your desired look. We recommend
you use Wig styling products to style your wig rather than typical hairspray and moose,
as they are not as harsh on the wig fibres. Depending on the style you've
have purchased you may need the fringe to be cut to suit your face. Some wigs
might only need the fringe to be teased a little and fluffed up to get them sitting
the way you want. It is just like your own hair, it needs to be styled
first to accomplish the best look.
