Where to Begin Styling Your Human Hair Wig?

To create a beautiful and neat hair wig look, you'll need to prepare it for future manipulations! Every style begins with careful wig care, maintenance, and other little steps. So, before diving into specific styles, let's address them:

  • Detangling: Gently brush your wig with a wig brush specifically designed for human hair. Begin working through the length of your wig from the ends up to the roots. Avoid pulling the hair to don't damage the wig.

  • Parting: Human hair wigs often come with a pre-parted style. However, you can adjust the parting to match your preference. Use a tail comb to create a clean and defined part.

  • Heat Styling (Optional): Human hair wigs can be styled with heat tools like flat irons and curling irons. Of course, this styling step is optional. You can opt for a heatless wig style if you prefer. Remember to use a heat protectant spray beforehand and adjust the temperature according to the hair texture.

This classic style is perfect for highlighting the natural beauty and shine of your human hair wig. After detangling, use a flat iron (at a suitable heat setting) to straighten the hair from root to tip. For extra sleekness, apply a small amount of shine serum to the mid-lengths and ends. You can add a center part, a side part, or even a deep side part for a touch of personality.

This relaxed and glamorous style is perfect for adding texture and volume. With a curling iron (at a suitable heat setting), create loose waves throughout the hair. You can alternate between curling sections inwards and outwards for a more natural look.

Once curled, gently brush through the hair with a wide-tooth comb to soften the waves and create a more relaxed texture. The final touch for this look: a light mist of hairspray to hold all these beautiful waves in place.

This practical yet stylish option is perfect for work, workouts, or a casual outing. Gather all the hair of your wig high, securing it tightly with a hair elastic. Pick the one that matches the color of the wig. Wrap a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a bobby pin to hide the elastic.

For a polished look, smooth down any flyaways with a holding spray or hair gel. You can elevate this style further by adding a braid or hair clip to the base of the ponytail.
