Are you having troubles with wearing wig with long hair? In fact, it is not as hard as you think! In today’s article, Messi Hair will help you out with these two useful methods. Let’s get started!
1. Wearing wig with long hair – The plait method
If you are planning on wearing wig with long hair for a long period of time, your natural hair is likely to be dry. Therefore, you need to make sure that you have washed your hair thoroughly before putting on the wig. You should also brush your hair carefully to remove any tangles or knots. In addition, if you have synthetic wig which is usually hard to untangle, we recommend washing your wig first with specialized shampoo.
To keep your natural hair in place when wearing wigs, you should braid it. Divide your hair into 2 sections before braiding each of them. If you have thick hair, you can separate it into 4 parts instead. You may either try classic braids or French plait, it all depends on your preferences. It is vital to start each braid at the nape of your neck, since you have to wrap these braids around your scalp.
Gently wrap and secure the braids on the crown of your head. Remember not to leave the braids too close to your natural hairline. Otherwise, they will be seen easily underneath the front of your wig. Once you have finished placing the braids, use bobby pins to keep them stay in place on your scalp.
After you have chosen the best wig cap for yourself, take it out and put it over your head. With a wig cap, your long hair will be secure and hidden when wearing wig with long hair. You should double-check that the front edge of the wig cap is aligned with the natural hairline of yours. Also, you ought to look out for any loose hair strands such as baby hair or sideburns, and tuck them into the wig cap. If you want to achieve a more natural look by blending your own hair with the wig, you can keep a few pieces of your natural hair out of the wig cap.
Now, it is time to put on your beloved wig. Just ensure it is aligned with your natural hairline, then style it fabulously the way you like it to be. In case you want to secure your wig, feel free to use more bobby pins that match the colour of your wig.
2. Wearing wig with long hair – The ponytail method
Same as the plait method, you should cleanse your hair thoroughly if you are planning on wearing wig with long hair for an extended period.
Take your long natural hair and tie it into a really low ponytail. Remember to tie it as tight as possible without it being uncomfortable. Then, take your ponytail and pull it over your head to make sure that the end of your hair nearly touches your forehead.
Now, take out your suitable wig cap and stretch it over the base of your ponytail. Using the base of your ponytail as an anchor, pull the cap up and over your head. Continue stretching it until the mesh is over your face. Then, slide back the front of the cap until it is around your hairline. Stick your fingers under the wig cap, and replace any stray hairs back under the cap. You may find that your ponytail is slightly lumpy under the cap, so you should try to evenly distribute your hair under the wig cap by gently massaging it.
Let’s put on your wig! Turn the wig upside down and put your forehead in first. Then, pull the rest of the wig back. In the process of pulling your wig on, there is a flap at the back of the wig, make sure to pull it over the base of your ponytail. This action will help to secure the wig onto your head.
The final step is for further adjustment if needed. Just simply adjust the wig until you feel comfortable and beautiful in your wig. You should make sure that your natural hair is hidden as much as possible underneath the wig. Then, gently secure the wig with bobby pins as in the plait method.
