Here are some basic steps on how to use and style a wig. This is definitely for beginners or people like me (who still find it difficult to put them on).

➊ Prepare your hair: If your hair is long, you can separate the hair into two pieces and twist them, crossing the two pieces behind your head. Attach them across the top and bottom with bobby pins. If you have long and thick hair, you can do small twists and curls and pin them all around your hair. Curl the strand down toward your head, making a wide circle with your hair. Once all the hair is in the curl, pin it with two bobby pins, making an X over the curl. Shorter hair can simply be combed and pinned away from the hairline. Try to get your hair as flat against your head as you can.

➋ Put on a wig cap: You can use either a net wig cap or a skin-toned nylon wig cap. The net cap breathes a little more while the skin-toned cap mimics the color of your scalp under your wig. To apply, gently stretch the cap over your head and line it up perfectly with your hairline, making sure all of your hair is underneath it. Secure it in place with a few bobby pins around the outer edges.

➌ Prepare the wig: Make sure you pull all of the wig hair into a ponytail. Or, if the wig hair is short, clip back the hair closest to the edge.

➍ Place the wig on your head: Hold your finger on the area of the wig that will be at the center of your forehead. Put it over your head and gently lay it down on your scalp, centering your finger on your forehead. After this, gently pull the rest of the wig over your head, and make sure the lace areas are smooth against your head, making a natural hairline.

➎ Style and accessorize: Once your wig is completely secure, you are free to style your hair as you wish.

The steps might be different depending on how much and what kind of hair you have! There are a ton of videos of how to do it. Maybe I will do one! But I'm too shy yet.

Hope you have a great week!
