Wig Wearing Tips and Tricks

If you are new to wigs or the master wig wearer, these tips and tricks might be new to you. A few quick tips can go a long way when it comes to wearing a wig comfortably and helping your wig last longer.


Front Lace Fraying?

What to do when your lace front wig is fraying - Take your wide tooth comb, comb the hair away from the hair line. Then, flip the wig inside out and trim the damaged lace with pinking shears. Make sure to align the pattern of the pinking sheers while cutting to make for a seamless look.



Want to Change Your Part?

Create a new part on your wig using a wide tooth comb. Then gently steam the section for 2-3 seconds. Hold the part in place until it cools and sets. You may have to do this a couple times depending on the fiber of the wig. A steamer can also be a great way to restore a wig's curl pattern or even freshen up that frizzy style that's been sitting in the back of your closet.
