As a fashionable way of achieving a stunning appearance transformation, hair wigs products have become more popular than ever among females.
One of the most notable reasons must be how user-friendly it is for the wearers. Hair wig wearers can quickly gain an appearance featuring a full head of hair with their wanted hairstyles in an instant by going with a hair wig, regardless of their hair loss conditions. On the other hand, securing a wig on the head is usually an easy job that does not take much time and effort, even for beginners.
Despite that, as many of us probably are not very familiar with, there are actually a large number of options available when it comes to how to secure a wig or hold wig in place. And the users do not always have to stick to just one or two ways of holding the wig on, as some other options could be more pleasant and less of a hassle.
Today, New Times Hair is going to share with you all the common and effective methods for how to severe a wig for yourself or your customers to try.
Securing a Wig Using Wig Clips
Wig clips are favored for being a very quick and beginner-friendly tool to secure a wig. Many wigs nowadays come with clips across the base.
What really makes wig clips a great option should be the ease of use for the wearers. They could simply have the wig clipped on their natural hair using their hands without going through much hassle and go out feeling confident and reassured. Things are even more manageable whenever they need to remove their wigs, as they could just unclamp the clips and take off the wig within seconds.
Securing a Wig Using Wig Glue
Wig glue has been gradually gaining popularity over the past years as a super undetectable way to secure a wig. And it is not that difficult to practice glue attachment either.
To secure a wig using a wig grip, the wearers first need to have all the hair smoothed down and flatten all the flyaway hairs. Then place the wig grip on top of the head with one hand and adjust the grip strap at the back with the other hand. Slowly place the wig on top of the wig grip, do it starting from the front of the wig on your head, then to the sides, and lastly, the bottom. Make sure the wig grip is not too loose, or you will need to start all over again.
Securing a Wig Using Wig Caps
Wig caps must be one of the most common things that female wig wearers encounter. And it works for both those who have hair and those who do not. Wig caps work by sitting on top of the wearers’ head and beneath the wig, gripping to the wearers’ scalp on the inside layer. Women with short hair or no hair prefer nylon wig caps since they offer a very smooth surface against the scalp.
To secure a wig using wig caps, the wearer needs to first use a cotton swab to apply some alcohol along the hairline to clean up things like oil, dirt, and cosmetic buildups. Then hold the wig cap with both hands and gently stretch the cap before placing the cap to the head from the front to the back. Make sure there are not any bubbles underneath the cap. Next, place the wig on top of the cap just the way you put the cap, and you are all set.
Securing a Wig Using Wig Tapes
Tapes are more commonly seen among male hair system wearers as a very ideal attachment tool for hairpiece products. But they can also work for women to secure a wig, not in the same ways, though.
Unlike most other tools for securing a wig, tapes are not meant to be applied to the wearer’s natural hair as many of us could imagine. Wig tapes are usually double-sided, with one side adhering to the bald head and the other to the wig base.
To secure a wig using wig tapes, one needs to first use a cotton swab to apply some alcohol along the hairline to clean up things like oil, dirt, and cosmetic buildups. Then use scissors to cut the tape into several small strips. Peel away one side of the strips and orderly attach the tape strips along the hairline. Make sure they are equally distanced from one another. Next, peel away the other side of the tape strips and slowly place the wig on the head with the edge precisely aligned with the hairline. Lastly, gently press each wig area that covers each tape stripe underneath to make sure the wig is tightly secured to the head.
Securing a Wig Using Bobby Pins
Bobby pins are metal clips made with two flexible prongs, with one prong usually straight and the other ridge. Many wearers probably do not understand how Bobby pins can help secure a wig. Actually, they are becoming widely used by women to secure a wig in most cases. How they work is really similar to that of clips. And the wearers need to have a decent amount of existing hair volume that is long enough for the pins to work. When purchasing Bobby pins, make sure to get the ones with the same color as the hair wig.
Securing a wig using Bobby pins can be a pretty skillful job, especially for beginners. To start, you need to collect all of the natural hair and make sure it is tied down neatly. If necessary, use hair spray to tame all the flyaway hairs. Then place the wig on the head using both hands. Please do it starting from the front and working all the way towards the back. Next, slowly lift the wig’s front sections, place the pins through the weft of the bases and into your natural hair, and work your way towards the back as well. There should be enough pins there, or the wig can slip off with intense physical activity.
