How to Style a Half Wig

Learn how to style half wigs from celebrity hairstylist Ellin LaVar in this Howcast black hair tutorial.


Today we're going to style a half wig.

Here's your half wig. Separate it from your hair. Take a little bit of the half wig and a little bit of your hair and backcomb them or tease them, some people say tease, some people say backcomb, together. That way you keep it from separating from your own hair during the day.

So, we're just going to go down the length of the half wig and do this all the way down so that we keep the hair from separating from the wig.

Now if you have a long half wig sometimes it's better to go ahead and curl it before you put it on your head. It makes it easier for you. You can see what's going on in the back. And then apply it to your head and then curl your hair in the front to blend in.

So, after we tease the hair then you take your flat iron and just curl your hair back a little depending on how curly you want it or smooth you want it.

Then you just let your hair fall in with the curls that you've done already with the half wig before you applied it. Then take a little hairspray, spray it into place.

After you've done your curls in the front just take your fingers, blend your hair in with your half wig. Let them fall naturally. And now you know how to style a half wig.
