Even if you have been making use of a wig or hairpiece for a while now, it can be tricky to know where to start when it comes to styling – even if you prefer to opt for custom made wigs.
To make things a bit easier for you and ensure that you look and feel your best while wearing our wigs, we’ve compiled a list of useful styling tips.
Hairdressers – here to help
Any good hairdresser will happily help you to feel more comfortable in your wig.
It could be that your hairdresser cuts a fringe in, removes any excess bulk by thinning the hair out or just has it shaped differently - whatever you would like to have done to make yourself feel a bit more 'at one' with your wig, don’t be afraid to ask.
Customisation is key
You can customise a wig just as you would your own hair. Add any sort of hair accessory that you would normally wear, such as a headband, scarf or clip-in accessory. The fact that you are wearing a wig doesn’t mean that you have to wear it the same way all the time.
You could also try half-up half-down hairstyles, a ponytail or any other sort of style that you may have always aspired to.
You can still use heat styling
Some heat styling tools, such as straighteners and curling tongs, can be used on both human and synthetic hair. This means that you can take your wig from curly to straight and back to curly again if you so please.
Most wigs require that you use heat styling tools at no higher a temperature than 120 ⁰C, but that figure may vary depending on the exact wig and styling tool used, so do check.
