If you own a wig, you have surely seen the ear tabs on the sides of the inner cap. Perhaps you’ve noticed them but never knew their purpose– and maybe you’ve always wondered if they even have a purpose at all. Well, we’re here to answer all of your burning questions about ear tabs!

Ear tabs exist to help position wigs properly on your head.
