Foolproof Wigs for Beginners: Hands down wigs are a great alternative way to change your look. No matter if you are looking for something that’s short and sassy to give you a little extra edginess. Or, if you want to add some length and volume to your life. However, not all of us can afford to make a trip to the beauty salon for a $400 lace front wig install. Nor, have we mastered the “at home / do it yourself install”. No matter how many YouTube videos we’ve watched.
Fortunately for us we don’t always have to take that route. There are multiple wig options for girls like us that want to change up the look without all the fuss. Here are my top favorite foolproof wigs for beginners.
What’s a headband wig? A headband wig is simply hair sewn on a wig cap with a cloth headband attached to the front. Think of it like a half wig with a cloth strap across the front to hide the beginning of the wig. Typically, there are a few clips on the inside and an adjustable strap to make sure it fits your head properly.
Headband wigs are a great choice for beginners because it requires very little installation. There is no glue involved and it’s a great protective style. I don’t know about you, but headband wigs have been a God send for me! It’s my number 1 choice because of how easy and simple it is to wear. A first grader can do it. Not to mention it’s so natural looking.
All you have to do is pull your hair back into a ponytail or do some corn rolls, lay down your edges, style your baby hairs and put the wig on. Putting a fashionable headband on is optional. Voila`!!! There you have it, a nice style that you can wear to any occasion, and you still look well put together. Keep in mind it took you almost no time to do.
U- Part Wigs
My second favorite “easy to install wig” is the U part wig. The U-part wig is a wig that allows you to wear your natural hair through the opening of the wig. Let me explain, the wig is constructed by sewing bundles/tracks of hair onto a wig cap.
Essentially you will leave a small opening at the top or on the side of the cap in the shape of a U.
When installing this type of wig you will need to leave a portion of your natural hair out to cover and blend with the top of the wig.
Again, what I love about this wig is that it’s also very natural looking. However, it is not the most protective style friendly.
Depending on the texture of your unit, you will need to prepare your hair to match. For example, if you have curly, wavy or kinky hair, you may need to straighten your natural hair to blend with a Mink Indian Straight Hair unit or Peruvian Body Wave Hair Extensions unit.
Wigs With Bangs
We all know the process of customizing a unit can be challenging. From the bleaching of the knots, plucking the hairline and gluing down the lace can be a daunting task. Just thinking about it makes me tired.
So, when I want to avoid this project, I often opt for a “ready-to-wear” wig styled with bangs.
I love that they are beginner friendly and require little to no skills to put on. All you may need to do is a little shaping. A nip here and a snip there and you are good to go!
With that being said, I hope that this information has helped you and gave you some ideas of some foolproof wigs you could wear this holiday season.
