    #1 Way to Fix a Torn Wig

    This is the easiest way to fix a torn wig. Simply follow the steps and you can do it with ease!

    • To start fixing your torn wig, you need a dome on a table. Place the torn wig on it.
    • Get a no-shine round tape to make sure you hit the edges. Unroll the tape and close the tape over the damaged area as neatly as possible.
    • Make sure you close the damaged region and then round it off. Press down the tape to spread it out.
    • Cut a very small section of tape and place it down on the crack for extra security.

    #2 Way to Repair a Torn Hairpiece

    Fixing a damaged toupee hairpiece is best done with tape. Here’s another way you can use tape to fix the damage:

    • Take a rounded no-shine tape. In case you are wondering, no-shine tape will make it more realistic around the edges.
    • Take a cling film to cover up the split together a little bit more. Cut a small piece of cling film and measure it out before placing it over the crack.
    • Done? Take off the ends to use exactly what you need. It will help you keep it as fine as possible.
    • Lay down the tape at the edge to leave a little bit of room on the corner for cling film.
    • Place the cling film down onto the tape and pull the edges together. It will stop the glue from seeping through the crack on the rest of the hair.
    • Peel the tape off and then place one more piece of tape. Cut the extra tape or cling film around the edges to remove everything that’s overlapping on the top.
