Wig Etiquette: How to Properly Wear and Care for Wigs in Different Settings

Wearing a wig can be a convenient and stylish way to change your hairstyle or cover hair loss. However, just like any other fashion accessory, it's important to follow certain wig etiquette guidelines to ensure you look your best and feel confident. In this blog post, we will explore the do's and don'ts of wearing and caring for wigs in various settings, helping you navigate the world of wigs with grace.

  1. Choosing the Right Wig:

         When selecting a wig, consider the occasion and setting you intend to wear it           in. Opt for a natural-looking wig that matches your facial features and skin                 tone.The key is to choose a wig that complements your overall appearance,             whether you want a casual, formal, or professional look.

We can do this for you at our store at Shop G11, Landmark Boulevard, Water Corporation Drive. V.I. Lagos

  1. Proper Application:

         Properly wearing a wig is crucial to achieving a natural-looking result. Follow             these steps for a seamless application:

  • Prepare your natural hair: If you have long hair, tie it up in a flat style or wear a wig cap to ensure your real hair doesn't affect the way the wig sits on your head.

  • Adjust the wig cap: Secure the wig cap on your head by adjusting the straps and fastenings. Make sure it fits snugly without causing discomfort or tightness.
  • Position the wig: Place the wig on your head, aligning it with your natural hairline. Use adhesive or clips if necessary to keep it in place.
  1. Wig Care & Maintenance:

         Proper care ensures the longevity and appearance of your wig. Here are                   some essential tips:

  • Regular washing: Use specialised wig shampoo and conditioner to clean your wig, following the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Avoid excessive scrubbing to prevent tangling or damaging the hair fibers.
  • Storage: When not in use, store your wig on a wig stand or in its original packaging to maintain its shape and prevent tangling. Protect it from dust and direct sunlight.

  • Brushing: Use a wide-toothed comb or a special wig brush to gently detangle and style your wig. Start at the bottom and work your way up to avoid pulling or damaging the hair.
  • Heat and styling: Be cautious with heat styling tools, as excessive heat can damage synthetic wigs. If you desire a different style, consider investing in a heat-resistant wig or consult a professional stylist.

Your wigs can be maintained in our salon at the same location as our store if you need help with maintaining your wig. We also sell Wig Hangers to help store and keep your wigs perfect.

  1. Social Etiquette:

         When wearing a wig in social settings, it's important to consider the following           etiquette guidelines:

  • Confidence is key: Wear your wig with confidence, and others will admire your style. Embrace your new look and feel comfortable in your own skin.
  • Disclosure: If you feel comfortable, educate others about your wig or hair loss condition. Raise awareness and inspire others through your journey, while dispelling any misconceptions about wigs or hairpieces.
  • Be mindful of others: Avoid touching or adjusting your wig excessively in public. Secure it properly before leaving home to avoid any embarrassing situations.


Wearing a wig is an art, and following proper etiquette helps you make the most of this versatile accessory. By choosing the right wig, applying it correctly, and maintaining it well, you can confidently wear your wig in any setting.

Remember, the key to wig etiquette is to embrace your unique style and use your wig as a tool to express yourself authentically.

So, go ahead and rock that wig while leaving a lasting impression with your impeccable wig etiquette.
