Fitting your wig step by step:

    When you take your new Wig out of its packaging it will may look exactly as it did in our photos – this is because is has been specially packaged to hold its preset style. The best thing to do when you receive your wig and wear it for the 1st time is…

  • Remove the Wig from the hair net and remove any tissue paper (if there is any).
  • Place one hand inside the crown of the Wig and gently shake the Wig – this will help it to regain its original volume through ‘waking up’ the Wig fibres.
  • Using your fingertips (or a Wig pick), gently run your fingers through the hair and make final touch-ups. Its is important that you do not brush curly or wavy Wigs as this can damage them.

If you are not going to be wearing your Wig straight away then be sure to keep it in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight – the best way to keep the shape is to use a Wig stand – these can be purchased at a low cost from our shop

No matter how long your natural hair is, we always recommend a Wig cap/retainer, a wig cap will help hold your Wig securely in place and if you have long natural hair, will help hold that flat to your head to avoid any buldges showing through. Wig caps are also useful for making the Wig feel more secure if you have little or no hair

If you have short hair brush it back in the front, and up on the sides, then spray well with a good hold hair spray (do not get the hair spray on the Wig). If you have longer natural hair, then pin your hair flat in ‘flat pin curls’, set these with hair spray evenly all over your head so that your Wig will lay flat once in place

There is a label inside the Wig, this should be at the back of the Wig. There is an adjustable band inside the Wig which allows you to adjust the wig up to 1″ larger or smaller – adjust this up or down to fit your head exactly for maximum comfort and security

Hold the Wig with one hand griping the back of the Wig, and the other hand holding the centre of the front hairline. Tilt your head forward and slide the Wig on from front to back. You should slide the Wig back until the front edge is even with your front hairline

Most of our Wigs also have indents in the cap for your ears – when putting on the Wig ensure that these are aligned
