How Do I Put On a Wig if I Already Have Some Hair?

Putting on a wig if you already have some hair may seem daunting, but it is really easy! So, if you're asking “how do I put on a wig?” - read on!

The first step is to make sure that your hair piece has a wig cap that matches the colour of the hair used. To prepare any existing hair for putting on a wig, it must be brushed and then gathered into a ponytail at the nape of the neck and fastened securely. If the hair is very long and you're thinking “how do I put on a wig with long hair?” - flip the ponytail back up and let the ends rest on the face for now, before securing the flipped hair in place with two or three kirby grips (or specialised wig clips).

The next step in putting on a wig is stretching the cap over the head, starting at the nape of the neck and pulling it towards the front – the existing hair should lay as flat to the head as possible, and the wig cap should be a tight fit.

If you have hair still hanging out of the wig cap and you're wondering “how do I put on a wig with hair still sticking out?” don't fret – this is normal! Just tuck any remaining exposed hair under the side of the wig cap, before pulling the ears out.

Putting on a wig is all a matter of practice, and soon you'll be going from asking “how do I put on a wig?” to saying “putting on a wig is easy!” - but, we are always here to help you out – so, for any further information, call us today on 020 7404 6040.
