Putting on your wig


Putting On Your Wig


Sorry to disappoint you, but even the "easy part" of wigs won't be too easy in the beginning. Until you get used to it, and learn the tricks of the trade, it is advisable to leave fifteen to twenty minutes for getting your wig on- especially if you still have hair that must fit under the wig. But don't worry, it will get considerably faster and in a short time it will be a matter of two to three minutes.
  1. If you have long hair, first tie it up in a low pony tail or clip it up in a large pin.

  2. Hold the front of the cap between your thumb and forefinger (often there will be a comb sewn in there) and the back of the cap between your other thumb and forefinger.  Hold the cap in front of your hair line, latching it on to your forehead. With your other hand pull the back over your head till the back of the cap reaches your nape. Then gently move the front until it is just in front of your hairline.

  3. The sides of the wig should be wear a man's side burns would be. Lift the sides of the cap, and sweep any strands of your own hair that are sticking up into the wig. If you have sewn in side clips (a very good method of securing your wig) stick some of your hair between them and close.

  4. Many wigs come with adjustable Velcro tabs. Adjust the Velcro to give you a snug fit.

One benefit of having no hair is that you won't have to worry about getting it under your wig. If you find the wig itchy you may find it more comfortable to wear a skull cap or wig cap under the wig. Also, it is advisable to secure it with tape (see above.)

Putting On Your Fall


Putting on a fall is very similar to putting on a wig, but there are a few differences.
  1. Before you start part your hair horizontally (from ear to ear) 1-2 inches away from your hairline and comb the hair in front of the part over your face.

  2. Tie up the rest of your hair.

  3. Holding the cap between your forefingers and your thumb, place the front of the cap just in back of your hair line and fasten it in with a front comb. With your other hand pull the back of the cap over your head. The sides of the wig should be wear a man's side burns would be.

  4. Lift the sides of the cap, and sweep any strands of your own hair that are sticking up into the wig. If you have sewn in side clips (a very good method of securing your wig) stick some of your hair between them and close.

  5. Now style the front hair, that you left hanging out of your wig, as desired. You can tie it up into a half pony or pull it back and cover the line with a headband. Alternatively, you can skip the first step, put on the fall just like a wig just pulling the front further back and then cover the line with a hat.
