Whip Your Wig Into Winter Shape

With all the layers of clothes and winter gear needed to stay cozy in these cold temps, it can sometimes feel difficult to still feel stylish. That’s where cute winter hair accessories come in! When it comes to accessorizing a wig, especially with hats, it can be tricky to ensure your wig stays perfectly in place as you wander in and out of the blustery weather. Here are a few tips to help your wig stay secure and damage free throughout the winter season:

Use a gentle touch.

When you put on and remove items like hats and earmuffs, it’s important to do so with patience. If you pull everything off in a hurry once you rush indoors, you might accidentally take your wig off with it!

Carry a comb.

In order to prevent hats and accessories from damaging your wig, carry a wide tooth comb in your purse and take care of tangles and snags as they arise. It’s not uncommon for a headband or hat to snag on a few pieces of windblown winter hair. If this happens, be patient! Don’t risk yanking it out and damaging the wig—use your comb and a light touch, instead, to work it free.

Check sizing.

One of the best ways to keep a wig in place is to ensure you’re wearing the correct size. Visit any wig retailer and work with an experienced consultant to measure your head. Try on different wig styles in your size and a couple sizes outside your normal range to get an idea of what a good fit feels like. Also, wear your favorite wig when you go shopping for any new accessories so you can make sure they work with your chosen wig.

The secret to a perfectly natural look is a slightly imperfect part, says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Gently reposition strands along the part line or snip a few wispy pieces using manicure scissors—AND some restraint—for a slightly messy part that looks all your own.”

For first-time wig wearers, “The trick is to stay close to the color of your eyebrows,” notes Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. If not, “then consider dyeing your eyebrows to match your chosen wig color.”

“Few people know that wigs can be styled just like natural hair—and that most hairstylists are happy to give your wig a custom cut,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Trimming bangs and shaping to your exact specifications can help make your wig indecipherable from your own natural hair.”
