Frequently Asked Questions

How do I put on a wig?

After removing your wig from the box, take off the protective hairnet (if the style has one) and give it a good shake. If it is a ready-to-wear like synthetic hair then you are ready to go! If it requires customization (such as trimming a lace front), we recommend you consult a hair stylist. Check out our salon locator to find local salons familiar with wearable hair.

If you have a lot of your own hair, the first step is to gather it back and up. One great trick is to separate hair into two sections on each side of your head. Twist the hair as you pull it back and around the head so that it will eventually lay flat. This tactic can help avoid a pony tail bulge. You may choose to use pins, braids, wig caps (recommended) or a great product called Sure Grip to secure your hair. A wig cap can be helpful even without hair to keep wigs secure and in place.

Hold your wig on each side of your pupils, start at the front, place it at your natural hairline, Slide it on toward the nape of your neck and shift as needed using the ear tabs to help center your wig.

Adjustable straps at the nape (back of the neck) may help to achieve a more secure fit. If handling a lace front wig, take care not to tug on the lace as it can be a bit delicate.

Don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect right away, start styling!
