Styling Your Custom Wig

Now that you have your custom unit in your hands, you must be excited to put it on. Your custom unit is made with 100% Human Hair. It’s all real so you can do almost anything you want with it just like you would your own hair.

If you don’t want to use a hairdresser to style your wig, that is okay to! You can do it yourself. Practice makes perfect. Just because your unit is custom, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun styling it yourself.  The best styling tools for human hair are steam rollers. We’ve also included a list below of supplies that can be used for styling and caring for your wig. Blow dryers, curling irons and other thermal tools may be used on low settings to style your hair. You can style the wig while you are wearing it or you can pin the wig onto a mannequin head and style it there first before putting it on.

Note that your unit is not styled. In order to create the most natural looking hairline possible, you will have to set the hair in the front of the wig.  To do this, take a spray bottle of water and lightly mist the hair around the hairline. Then take a fine tooth long handled comb and pull the desired amount of hair that you require forward. Roll the hair with a roller or use pins to set to desired style and then blow dry or allow the hair to dry naturally. If you want bangs, you can use this same procedure for cutting in your own hair bangs as well. We recommend you always cut your bangs longer than the desired length first, put the wig on and then trim to suit.

Unless you ordered a permanent part in your unit, your unit is most likely multi-directional. This means that you can part the simulated scalp any way you like. Using plain water, or styling hold gels or sprays and parting the hair where you want it can be set and styled to your liking.

Colouring Your Wig
Although we never recommend it, if your new wigs color isn’t completely what you desired, the good news is that you can dye it because its real. Human hair wigs are human hair so they can in fact be dyed but do so at your own risk.
If for any reason, you need to dye your unit, it is always best to have it done professionally by a hair stylist. The general rule of thumb for dying hairpieces is that you can only make the hair darker, not lighter. So if you want to make your unit a little darker in color, that is okay but please proceed with caution. Do not leave the hair dye on too long to avoid any over processing of the hair. There are many great over the counter hair dyes that can be used on wigs at home. Make sure to choose semi-permanent hair color and choose a product that is strictly for “processed hair” as those kits usually include a conditioning cream that goes on the wig before dying take place to keep the hair from damage.

 

Wearing Your Custom Wig

To get started, place a nylon wig cap on your head to cover your own hair. This will help lye your own hair flat under the wig and even help a more secure fit. If you don’t have hair, we recommend that you cleanse the scalp and then slip your wig on.

Feel free to use the adjustable straps to tighten to fit to desired comfort. If you feel comfortable using tape, you can also use adhesive on your unit but it is not necessary.  Depending on the type of design you have, you should position the (ear tabs) slightly above your ears to find the right fit. If your unit has a neck tab, that should be centered at the nape of your neck. Some units have come with clips or combs. You can also use this to secure the unit to your own hair and find correct positioning.

Having a human hair wig is great fun. Your unit is made of real hair, so you can cut it style it, and curl or straighten it as you like. With proper care, your unit can last you a very long time. Listed below is a list of tools to help keep your human hair unit long lasting and beautiful. Enjoy your new hair!
