Wig Styling Tips

The moment you have been eagerly anticipating has arrived. Your new wig has just been delivered and you have taken it out of the box. Now what? Here are a few tips to help you look dazzling without a lot of effort or skill.

  • Make sure you use styling products that are formulated for your type of wig, whether it is synthetic or human hair. For example, products for human hair wigs should be sulfate-free to keep the color looking vibrant for longer. You may come across products that are labelled "paraben-free." Paraben is cheap, common type of preservative that is used in many products from shampoo to toothpaste. However, it is falling out of favor because it has been found in human breast tumors, possibly because of their ability to mimic estrogen.

If you have a synthetic wig, eventually it may turn a little dry and frizzy. A quick spray mist of an oil sheen spray product should restore it to its former glory.

  • Have your cut customized by your regular stylist. You can send all the photographs and measurements that you like, and Patti's Pearls will make an awesome job of getting your wig just right. Still, it might not feel right until you take it to someone who knows the shape of your head and your lifestyle to give your new wig that "lived-in" look.
  • It is a good idea to have two wigs ready to wear at any one time. For one thing, you will always have something to wear while you are washing one wig. Secondly, rotating your wigs will help them your wigs last longer.
  • Keep your wig out of the kitchen! This is especially true if you have a synthetic wig. Hot ovens and boiling liquids are the enemy here. The damage may even be irreparable. Either wear a scarf or let someone else do the cooking!
