How To Put On A Wig

Putting on a wig is easy and once you see how easy it is, you will be hooked on wigs and love them just as much as we do.

Wearing a wig is a lot like wearing a hat. You don't need anything special to put on a hat, you just slip it on.

Well the same goes with a wig. Most wig caps come with two tabs on each side called ear tabs. You simply locate these tabs with your thumb and index finger, bend your head forward and starting from your forehead drape the wig over your head and line up the ear tabs with your own ears. Then lift up and pull down to the nape of your wig. If the wig does not feel secure enough, take the wig off and adjust the straps inside until you get your desired fit.

And don' t worry. Your wig will not come off. They are designed to stay on and are very, very secure.

Standard wigs do not require any tape or glue or anything to keep them on. Simply tightening the adjustment straps in the back is enough. Some people choose to wear a wig cap or wig liner to help flatten their hair under the wig and that is optional.

If you are someone who does not have hair, you may wish to purchase a wig grip band to help the wig feel tighter.
