5 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Wearing Wigs

Wearing wigs can be a great way to transform your look instantly, but there are specific tips and tricks you should know before diving in. As someone who has been wearing wigs for many years now, I want to share the valuable lessons I have learned so that you can get the most out of your wig-wearing experience! Read on to find out my top five things I wish I had known when first starting out wearing wigs!  

1. How to style your wig for different occasions?

Whether you’re attending a special event or want an everyday style, the key to creating great style with wigs is to stay creative and experiment with different looks. For example, with a blonde-highlight wig, you can go from ultra glam for a night out on the town with loose waves and voluminous curls to a chic everyday look by adding a center part and sleek straight locks.

Furthermore, accessorizing your wig will give it even more personality – try pairing bobby pins or a cute headband for an easy day-to-night transformation. With these easy tips in mind, styling your wig for different occasions will be fun and effortless.

2. How to care for your wig, so it lasts longer?

Firstly, styling products should be avoided: they may damage your wig over time. Secondly, brushing the wig properly and regularly can help prevent tangles and allow you to keep your style intact. When washing, use a brush designed specifically for wigs, a mild shampoo, and warm water to rinse. 

Additionally, avoid heavy oils and products containing chemicals, as they may ruin the delicate fibers in your wig. Finally, air-drying is best as it helps protect the hair from heat damage which will increase longevity. 

3. What types of wigs are best for different hair types?

Many factors should be considered when it comes to finding the right wig for your hair. For example, if you have thick, coarse hair, a human hair or synthetic wig would provide the most natural looking and feeling style, whereas those with finer hair will benefit from using a lighter-weight fabric-based wig. 

It is also essential to consider the length of your hair – longer wigs require more care and styling time than shorter ones. 

4. How to choose the right color and style of wig?

Choosing a wig’s right color and style can be intimidating at first, but with the proper guidance, it doesn’t have to be. Straight wigs with bangs may be the way to go if you are looking for an effortless yet chic style. 

Additionally, extra volume and fullness are what you desire. In that case, most stores provide different customization options that involve adding synthetic hair or longer lengths which can help add more dynamism to any look. Therefore selecting a perfect fit comes down to personal preference and experimentation, so try out some different styles today.

5. What to do if you’re not happy with your wig?

If you’re not happy with your wig, keep going! You can do many things to make wig-wearing an enjoyable experience. Start by determining the cause of your dissatisfaction; for example, is your wig too tight or too big? Consider styling options like using hairspray to stay in place or switching up the parting to make it look more natural. 

Experimenting with different products and tools like curlers and straighteners helps create a look you love once you’ve found what works best for your wig, wearing it will become a breeze.
