How to wear your hair under a wig

There are many different ways to prepare the hair. We want you to get the most out of your wig and to feel comfortable with your new look.
The methods listed below are for all types of hair. It’s best to experiment with different methods and see which ones work best for you.

We advise you to use a wig cap, they come in nylon or mesh cotton. A wig cap helps to keep your hair in place and create a smoother base for your wig to sit. You can brush out any fine hairs from the hairline using a lash wand. As you may prefer to have fine hairs blend in with the hairline. However if you do not have hair you can skip this step, as they may irritate your scalp.

Braids/plaits Method

1. Section the hair in two, down the centre from hairline to nape of the neck.
2. Comb the hair away from the face, keeping the hair as flat as possible to the scalp and then get 2 sections of hair and braid/plait.
3. With the two braids/plaits, take one each and crisscross them over. And attach them to the head along the nape of the neck. Securing with bobby pins as you go. Keeping the braids as flat as possible.
4. Place a wig cap over your prepared hair ready to put on your wig.

Big pin curls method

Make 6 big pin curls, section the hair off, 1 at the crown of the head, 2 at the sides on the temples, 1 in the centre at the nape of the neck, 2 on each side at the nape.

Alternatively you can take smaller sections and do pin curls all over the head.
Securing with 2 or more bobby/kirby pins.

Small pin curls method

1. Take a section of hair and wrap around your index and middle finger.
2. Hold the ends with your thumb to hold in place.
3. Remove your fingers and manipulate the curl to lie flat, then with bobby/kirby pins secure the curl in a criss-cross pattern. If you need more pins that’s fine, as long as it is comfortable and not bulky.
4. Place a wig cap over your prepared hair ready to put on your wig.

The wraparound method

1. Take a section of hair at the crown of the head. Wrap around into a pin curl.
2. Separate the rest of the hair into 4 sections. 2 at the front and 2 at the back.
3. Starting with one section at the back, take the hair and wrap it around at the side of the hair that forms the pin curl at the crown of the head. Adding pins as you go.
4. Repeat with the other three sections wrapping the hair around, like a cinnamon swirl.
5. Place a wig cap over your prepared hair ready to put on your wig.

Gripping method

1. Twist the front sections into some pin curls, or simply secure hair away from the forehead with bobby/kirby pins or toupee clips.
2. Comb the bulk of the hair to the nape of the neck, and pin down any loose ends.
3. Place the wig cap over your prepared head ready to put on your wig.
