Many long-haired beauties will occasionally imagine that what if I am short-haired. It appears very samey to wear long hair all the time. But at the same time, they are not willing to get their pretty waterfall cut. So they buy some different types of wigs to accompany their changeable moods. But how to put all your long hair under the small wig, while it looks like natural hair?
First of all, you should fix your hair to avoid making lumps or uneven places once you have your wig on. Nothing looks weirder than people easily recognize you’re wearing a wig at first glance. You must make sure that all your natural hair is pulled back from your hairline so it won’t be visible under the wig, especially when it is the long hair. If your hair is long enough, you can wet your hair thoroughly and separate the hair into 2 pieces and twist them. Then cross the 2 pieces behind your head and attach them with bobby pins.
If your hair is too long and too thick, you can grab a 1 inch wide portion of your hair and twist it. Then wrap the end around your forefinger to curl the strand. Once all the hair is in the curl, pin it with 2 bobby pins, making an X over the curl. Afterwards do this for the entirety of your hair in the same way and this will give you a smooth surface on which to apply your wig.
After this, choose a proper wig cap for yourself. As for the color, you’d better use a wig cap that is close to the color of wig you are going to wear. Then stretch the wig cap over your head, starting from the nape, pulling it on toward the front. This idea is to have the hair lay as flat to the head as possible. In this process, stuff as much of your hair as possible down toward the back of your neck, but make sure it’s still contained by the wig cap.
After you have the wig cap on, put on the wig from front to back. Hold the wig with both hands and place the wig’s scalp line against your forehead, just above your eyebrows. Tilt your head forward as you slowly stretch the sides of the wig down over your wig cap. The wig will stretch to accommodate any extra hair that you’ve stuffed into the back of your wig cap. If you are concerned the wig may slip, there are usually a pair of elastics that hook together. You can clip them together for extra security, though they can be uncomfortably tight, so use at your own discretion.
At last, test how well you’ve applied the wig by jumping up and down, shaking your head vigorously from side to side. However, if you don’t understand the methods above, get yourself to a salon and ask the stylist to do it for you. And it will really make a huge difference in the way you look.
