With today’s rise in quality synthetic wigs, styling your hair has never been better. It is now possible for you to wear wigs that look almost exactly like a natural, full head of hair. There are just a couple of tips and tricks to keep your synthetic wig looking its absolute best. Here are some of the best ways to style your synthetic wig in the best way possible!
Consider investing in a spray bottle that is filled with cold, clean water to lightly spritz your wig for styling. Spritzing your synthetic wig with a spray bottle and using your finger to style it can help revitalize any limp strands of smooth frizz without washing the whole wig while removing static electricity. Most short wigs are easy to handle using just your fingers, and long wigs can be smoothed out with the hands, and the ends can be managed with your fingers too. Just don’t douse your wig with too much water.
Do Not Brush a Wet Synthetic Wig
Speaking of wigs with too much water, always use a comb or brush specifically designed to use with wigs, as normal brushes made for natural hair can pull on and ruin your wig fibers. Use shorter strokes on wigs with waves and looser curls, so you do not remove the curls out of the strand. For smoother styles, use long strokes with lighter pressure. Use a pick comb to gently style any ringlet curls to reduce frizz.
Do not use any heated styling tool with wigs that aren’t explicitly labeled to be “heat friendly” or made of 100% human hair. The heat will seriously damage synthetic fibers and can burn or melt them, ruining the synthetic wig.
Cutting Your Wig
Yes, you can cut your wig if you wish. Customize your look by having a professional stylist with wig cutting experience shape up and trim your wig. Make sure to get the stylist to cut the wig while you’re wearing it for a look that is suited for your particular face shape. This includes any wigs with bangs, curly or straight hair as well.
Personalize your synthetic wig by adding headbands or scarves. Use any accessories to help add color and brightness around your face. This is all about you, so feel free to add anything to enhance the look of your wig!
