In most cases, a synthetic wig is designed with a basic style in mind. This means minimal upkeep is required. However, you may wish to add slight variations on your own.
Synthetic wigs can be styled with your fingers or with a wig brush and comb. Do not use tools designed for human hair on a synthetic wig. These tools can stretch and damage the hair on the wig. Curling irons, hot rollers, and blow dryers should also be avoided, as heat can cause irreversible damage to your wig.
You can add height to your style by gently lifting the hair with a wig comb. Fullness can be added by teasing or back combing before smoothing the surface hair over the teased area. Liquid wig mouse can be used to create curly or wavy styles.
If needed, you can lightly spritz your wig with clean, cool water to remove static electricity.
Experimenting with colorful hair accessories can also be an effective way to give your wig a new style. A pretty headband, scarf, or hair clip can add a subtle change to your look without requiring any sort of long-term commitment.
To return a wig to its original basic style, wash it with a specially designed wig shampoo and conditioner before allowing it to air dry. You can blot your wig dry with a soft towel, but vigorous scrubbing should be avoided.
If you want to create a completely different look, it is best to take your wig to a professional stylist. A stylist can easily trim your bangs, add layers, or tweak your wig’s current style to suit your exact specifications.
Storing Your Wig
To help your synthetic wig hold its style and shape, you should store it on a wig stand. Your wig should be kept away from direct sunlight to avoid accidental fading and discoloration.
