Gone are the days where wigs were only worn by clowns. Wigs and half-wigs look great and are perfect as as quick styling options, protective hairstyles and also for religious purposes. Worn by women around the world everyday, half wigs provide an easy inexpensive hair styling option.
Also referred to as a hair piece, half wigs can be worn for long or short-term purposes.
Like the name implies, when wearing a half wig, half (sometimes less) of the hair is exposed while wearing a half wig and as such, it is very important that the half-wig blends with the natural colour of the wearer's hair.
It is important to choose the right half wig from a beauty supply store, either locally or online. Buying half wigs online has become very popular over the years as customers love to read various reviews by people who have purchased it all over the world.
It is best for half wigs to have combs in the front and back of the wig. Do not confuse a half wig with a full wig, which should cover all of your head.
You may choose to blend the two hair textures (half wig and your natural hair) or use a head band which would cover your hair, only exposing the half wig.
To blend the two hair textures, you may use a curling iron, flat iron, hair rollers, hair gel or cornrow your hair prior to wearing the half wig in order to achieve the same texture of hair as the half wig.
Part your hair along the front parameter, about an inch from the hairline and comb forward, starting at your left ear going all the way to your right.
Braid your hair in a circular pattern (excluding the front parameter), or straight back. This provides traction for the half wig combs and makes the half wig lie flat on the head.
Put the half wig on and make sure that the combs securely fit in the front and back of the head. Ensure that the wig aligns with your ears. You may also use bobby pins to secure the wig to your taste.
There are numerous videos on YouTube which show various half wig styling techniques as well as half wig reviews.
