5 Best Wig Styling Tips Ever!
Whether you have bought an expensive human hair wig or you have a synthetic one! If you would like to make your wig look promising and real, let me clear this fact to you that it’s all about right styling and having the right tricks to do it up your sleeve.
For now if you can’t have a crash course on wig styling, here are some great ideas on how to tailor a wig! Here is exactly what you need to do, real or synthetic:
- Where to Shop?
If you are someone who wants to try a wig on an occasion like Halloween or some other event, you should shop for your wig at a hair store. Don’t buy your wig from a costume store. Whether it’s a seasonal pop-up or it just a usual need, costume shops always overcharge for wigs. Beauty supply stores and hair stores are best to get a nice quality wig at a fine price.
- Trim the Wig. Wigs are easy to cut and trim. You must wear your wig while having it trimmed or cut by a wig stylist. Some people do use styling heads for this purpose but then you won’t have an idea of the shape which should best suit your face cut. Wear the wig and make sure it’s synced up with your ears and face when its cut.
- Dye it a different color. “If you’re planning on buying a wig and having a colorist color it, look for one with natural hair fibers–you will also be able to heat style natural hair versus burning a synthetic wig,” explains Bb.colorist Luis Ayala. You must buy a natural human hair wig if you want to dye it later.
- Don’t use just any hair brush! If your wig is tangled, don’t go brushing it with just any kind of brush. To lightly detangle, look to a wide-tooth wet brush, which will be most soft. There are special wig combs specifically designed for wig styling, you may use them.
- Use a Styling head A styling head is a great help in saving your time with trying new hairstyle. You can always try a new hairstyle on a styling head. If you want to wear hair band or any hair accessory you can also try it out. It really gives you time to wear the right kind of hair do on a particular party or event.
One general wig styling tip that you must remember is that always spray wig hair products 12 inches away from your wig. If you will spray a product in your wig hair close than that you might damage your wig. If you have a synthetic hair wig, don’t use heat or steam on it you will destroy the hair fibers completely. If you want to straighten or curl your wig, make sure it’s a human hair wig.
