Before you begin, it's important to choose a wig that matches your preferences and style. Consider the color, length, texture, and type of wig according to your personal needs and tastes. Make sure the wig is the right size for your head so that it fits comfortably and securely.

2- Preparation of the hair:


For best application, prep your natural hair by straightening or braiding close to the scalp. If you have long hair, you can also tie it up in a bun or a low braid to minimize unwanted volume. Use bobby pins to secure the locks or use a wig cap called a wig cap to keep your hair in place.

Before putting on the wig, make sure it fits snugly on your head. Adjust the elastic straps or hooks inside the wig to get a comfortable and secure fit. If the wig is too big, you can use bobby pins to fix it to natural hair or use special wig tape along the edge of the wig.

4- Preparing the wig:

Before putting on the wig, gently comb the hair of the wig to remove knots and tangles. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush specifically designed for wigs.

5- Application of the wig:

To put on the wig, hold it by the sides and place it on your head. Align the front of the wig with your natural hairline and gently glide it back. Adjust it to make sure it sits well and completely covers your natural hair. Use your fingers to smooth the hair and create a natural look.

6- Fixing the wig:

For a secure hold, use bobby pins to secure the wig to natural hair near the hairline or at the sides of the wig. Be sure to insert them discreetly to prevent them from being visible.

All wigs from Velvety Paris come with an elastic band sewn into the wig allowing it to stay in place without the use of pins or glue.

You can also use special fixing products such as glues or adhesives for wigs, following the instructions. Bold hold glue is perfect for a pose that will last 1 to 3 weeks.

7- Styling the wig:
