    How to Put on a Wig and Hair System Properly – Detailed Guide

    A lot of people want to buy them but only few know how to put on a wig properly with long or short hair. Perhaps, that’s why search terms like ‘how to put on a wig with long hair’, ‘how to put on a wig cap’ and ‘how to put on a wig hair system’ are such popular search hits on Google. While there is no dearth of content that answers how to put on a wig or hair system, very few quality guides exist. That’s why our team of hair experts have compiled this detailed guide on how to perfectly put on a wig properly and fix the hair system the right way.


    Read on below for our detailed guide on how to put on a wig properly with short hair and long hair:


    How to put on a wig with long hair

    Long hair is beautiful but it can quickly become a real hassle when it comes to wearing a wig properly. Our detailed guide on how to put on a fashion or style wig will help you tuck away and hide all your natural hair and let your wig do the talking. Here are the vital steps that will teach you how to put on a wig with long hair:


    Braid your hair properly

    The very first step is to separate your hair into two parts (or three if that’s your thing) and braid them neatly. Now, crisscross the braids in the back and place them properly with the help of bobby pins and roller pins so that they stay flat and feel comfortable. This might require some practice. For the first couple of times, make sure you have a friend to help you out. Once you are done braiding, you're ready to put on the wig cap.


    Put on a wig cap

    Normally, wigs come with a wig cap which helps your own hair stay inside the cap. Wig caps make sure none of your own hair is visible as it all remains inside the cap. Wearing a wig cap, therefore, gives you a natural look.  


    Fashion Tip- Mix your custom or stock hair pieces with wig's hair for the more natural look by letting out desired sections of hair from the wig cap.


    Remove tangles and cut lace

    Now that you know how to put on a wig cap, it's time to detangle the wig's hair and cut the lace (if you have a front lace wig). Front lace wigs often have an extra layer of lace which serves as protection during shipment and also reassures you that the wig has never been worn before.


    Simply cut the extra lace with a small pair of scissors. Lordhair recommends smaller ones to ensure precise cutting and lower the risk of damaging the wig.


    Put on a wig

    Now, the final step of putting on a wig with long hair is to actually put on your wig. There are two clips sewed to each side of the wig which helps the wig stay in place. You can comb your hair into the wig's hair to ensure a proper fit. There is also an adjustable strap in the back of the wig which you can use to adjust the wig to give yourself a nice and secure fit and to make your hairline stay flat along with the wig's hairline.


    The above four steps from Lordhair are the most demanding steps in putting on a wig properly but once you have mastered these, you will have almost mastered the art of wearing fashionable and medical wigs. Check out this video that shows how natural our fashionable wigs look on women in love with long hair!



    Now, let’s elaborate on the wig application process with short and medium hair.


    How to put on a wig with short hair and medium hair

    The procedure to put on a wig with short and medium hair is the same as the one with long hair. There is no need for hair braiding since your hair is not long enough and short hair can easily be concealed underneath your wig.


    Now that we know how to put on a wig with short hair and long hair properly, let’s look at how to put on a hair system which is quite different and has its own unique aspects.


    How to put on a hair system like a boss

    In the last few decades, hair systems have emerged as the best non-surgical solution to get the hair of your dreams. Just like wigs, putting on a hair system takes only a couple of minutes once you have mastered the process through a bit of practice. Here are the quick steps depicted in a chart to show the process of putting on a hair system properly:

    Attaching A Skin Hair System

    While the process of using a hair system is really simple and practiced by thousands of Lordhair clients, there are some aspects to putting on a hair system that are more challenging. Below are the most-widely searched queries about using a hair system:


    Tape attaching guide for hair system

    Tape is widely used in modern wigs and toupees to give customers the ease of attachment, removal, and cleaning. Since Lordhair has been developing top quality hair systems for over a decade now, we took time to plan and publish a detailed tape attaching guide for our customers. Have a look and learn how to wear a hair system or wig with tape.


    Adhesive attaching guide for hair systems

    Since adhesive is used directly on skin, cleaning your scalp is crucial in making sure that your hair system is put on in the best possible manner. Using adhesive is very much different from how people put on wigs. That’s why we took time to create a dedicated blog and address all the queries related to hair system accessories. Check it out.


    Now, let’s get familiar with other points that you ought to keep in mind when buying non-surgical hair products online:


    Always prefer quality: Quality should be on the top of your mind when buying wigs. Substandard quality wigs are easily spotted and get worn out quickly. Always buy hair wigs and hair replacement systems from reputable manufacturers and suppliers. Renowned brands are known for providing great quality hair systems at amazing prices.

    Go for natural: Most women prefer front lace or full cap wigs which are more natural and feel extra comfortable. The fact that these wigs create a very natural hairline makes them hugely popular among men and women of all ages.

    Easy returns: Before buying, look for an easy return policy. A return policy lets you get the product changed from the supplier if you get the wrong or damaged product.

    Understand your scalp: If your scalp is sensitive, then Lordhair recommends that you always wear a wig cap before wearing a wig. A wig cap ensures protection to your hair and prevents your own hair from sticking out of the wig.

    Go for human hair: Always opt for full human hair wigs rather than synthetic ones. They look way more natural and you can blend your own natural hair with them.
