Wig Help - Styling Guide

General Styling Tips

When styling a wig, don't try to get every hair perfectly in place. This can make your wig look “unnatural”.

Make sure to use wig brushes or combs. Avoid regular hair brushes. Use wig styling accessories like wig shampoo, conditioner and wig oil spray. They make styling easier and extend the life of your wig.

Many customers take their new wig to a professional hairstylist to trim and sometimes thin the wig to suit their needs.

Synthetic Styling Tips

  • Many styles need only a good shake or finger styling and they're ready to wear. Just a gentle shake is all you need.
  • For tight curly or ringlet styles – do not brush. Gently shake and lift and separate the curls with a pick comb or fingers.
  • For wavy styles with loose curls brush lightly with a wig styling brush or pick comb using short, lifting strokes - just enough to relax the style.
  • For long curly styles, do not brush. Use your fingers or a pick comb to separate the curls.
  • For Straight styles gently brush, try not to stretch the fibers. Remove tangles first starting at the bottom and working your way up to prevent breakage.
  • We recommend the use of a wig conditioner or wig spray. Do not use hairspray unless it is for synthetic fibers only.
  • Manufacturers do not recommend the use of curling irons or rollers on synthetic fiber.

A note about permatease wigs - some wigs have a "packing" top (shorter fibers at root/base of wig). These shorter fibers are there to give bulk and volume to the wig. A light combing from the root base in an upward direction with a wide tooth comb/brush will blend them into the longer fibers. Then, using your fingers, pick out strands and move them in the direction of the style that you want to achieve. You may want to do this with fingers that are slightly damp (use a little water) or spray a fine mist of water over the wig when styling.

Human Hair Styling Tips

  • Use a wig brush or comb. Brush gently. Remove tangles first starting at the bottom and working your way up to prevent breakage.
  • You may use rollers or curling iron to set the wig.
  • For tight curly or ringlet styles – do not brush. Gently shake and lift and separate the curls with a pick comb or fingers.
  • For long curly styles, do not brush. Use your fingers or a pick comb to separate the curls.
  • For Straight styles gently brush, try not to stretch the fibers. Remove tangles first starting at the bottom and working your way up to prevent breakage.
