Wearing a wig can be a lot of fun whether you're doing it to cover hair loss or just want to enjoy the variety of hair styles, lengths and colors that wearing a wig makes it possible to achieve.this blog will help guide you along with some very simple tips on how you can wear these appearance-enhancing aids. For some people dressed in a wig can seem a bit daunting until you get comfortable with them.  

1.Be Confident

The right attitude is key to pulling off any hairstyle. If you are constantly worrying or fidgeting with your wig it won't look good. Own it! Walk tall, be confident and you will be able to pull off any look you want.

2.Customize Your Cut

Take your wig to your hairstylist to have bangs cut or trimmed, shaped or thinned out to remove excess bulk. A custom cut can make a world of difference. Think of your wig like a designer suit. Sure, you can wear it off the rack and it can look good, but with a little tailoring it can look GREAT!

3.Invest in the Right Care Products

If you want to extend the life of your wig and keep it looking beautiful the proper care products are essential.For human hair wigs, choose sulfate-free care products or products specifically formulated for color treated hair to keep the color looking vibrant, longer. 

4.Always Think Ahead

You should always have two wigs ready to wear at all times.This way you always have something to wear when you are washing your wig and a back up if anything should happen to one. Rotating between wigs also helps to extend the life.

5.Kitchen Tips

If you love to cook here is a tip every wig wearer should know; NEVER open the oven while wearing a synthetic wig! The sudden burst of heat will ruin your wig; even the hot steam from a boiling pot of water can cause irreparable damage.

6.Personalize Your Look

Add a headband, scarf or any hair accessory to create a personal touch. Just because you are wearing a wig doesn't mean you have to wear it the same way all the time. Be creative.

7.Blend in your Own Hair

If your natural hair is somewhat close to your wig color try blending in your own hair along the hairline for a more natural look. Apply the wig then pull out small sections of your own hair along the sides and front using your fingers or a rattail comb.

8.Stay Close to your Current Style

Choose a wig close to your current hairstyle. What is going to look the most natural on you, is a style that looks like YOU! A familiar style will help you feel more confident and make the transition from wearing your own hair to wearing wigs a good experience. Experiment with subtle style variations, but stay within your comfort zone.

9.Don't Forget Styling Products

Give your hair a salon finish and define layers using styling products (Shaping Cream or Style & Hold Hair Spray works great on synthetic hair).

10.Know Your Measurements

There is nothing worse than an ill fit wig. You don't want your wig riding up, slipping off or to look misshapen by excess bulk at the crown. This is why choosing the right size is just as important as finding the right color and style.

11.Create Different Hairstyles

If your hair is chin length or longer, try a half-up, half-down style. For longer wigs, try a loose updo or low ponytail. 

To make these looks work; keep it soft, loose and a little messy. Keep the bangs down (unless you have a lace front wig) and pull down a few tendrils of hair along the hairline to keep it looking natural.

12.Go Curly or Straight
