The Wig Measurement Guide and How to Put on a Wig

HOW TO PUT A WIG ON (Step by step guide)

  1. Turn the wig over and hold it in front of you, (the hairline should be facing you).
  2. Hold at the nape area and slip the wig on like a cap, keeping ears free.
  3. Gently push the hairline of the wig up to match up with your natural hairline.
  4. Hold the ear tabs and adjust to ensure the wig is on evenly and in front of your ears.
  5. Use wire in the ear tabs to adjust and to form the shape of your temples.
  6. Use your fingers, brush or comb (depending on fibre) to help shape the hair into the desired style.

TIP: If you have a SmartLace lace front wig, be sure to not pull on or stretch the lace.


Only use the ear tabs to adjust your wig placement on your head.
