Using Headband Half Wigs
In the beginning, headbands were used as simple bands around a person’s hair that were tied into place with elastic. Wigs would follow suit sometime in the 1980s. Suddenly, headbands could have been a solution to a short-term hiccup in the hair industry, but the convenience of use has won over many wig-wearers, both professional and amateur. For those who still think headband wigs are a fad, we will show you how headband wigs really work.
Headband wigs can be made of synthetic or natural materials. The most popular for wig beginners are the synthetic ones, as they are easier to use. You simply stick them onto your head, secure them under your chin with elastic or a small knot, and you’re ready to go. However, if you want to achieve a natural look, there is a trick to make the glue adhere to your natural hair.
To do this, you’ll need a comb, a large mirror, a tape measure and some measuring tape. You will want to measure the length of your natural hair from temple to temple, and then take one inch from that measurement. This will be your adjustable length headband. Next, turn your headband tape measures upside down so that you are looking at it directly. Use the mirror to ensure the measurement is accurate, and then read it out loud.
To glue your headband wig, use some of your glue gun’s glue. If you don’t have any glue gun, then just use the glue that comes with most headband wigs. Glue the headband wig onto the tape measure, starting at the bottom of your head. Once you reach the end of the tape, bend the ends slightly. Now that you have your headband wig attached to the tape, use your glue gun to hold it in place.
There are several ways to choose headband wigs that include clip on extensions and headbands that are made of real human hair. For clip on extensions, simply put them on the head as you would a traditional wig. To use headbands that are made of real human hair, simply choose one of three different styles: lace wigs, full headband wigs or plait wigs. Depending on what you prefer, you will need to purchase the headband wig appropriate for the style you want.
Clip on headband wigs that are made of real human hair allow you to wear wigs in many different ways. You can use these to create an entirely new look, or you can use them to simply modify an existing style that you already have. For example, if you have a style with long bangs, you could easily add an attached headband wig with a smaller braid to create the illusion of short bangs. Likewise, if you have medium length hair, you could use your clip on headband wig to lengthen your hair to make it appear shorter. You could also use a headband wig to create a more slender look, or to make the hair on your head look fuller.
There are also headband wigs that are made of synthetic hair such as acrylic. These are great if you don’t want to wear wigs that contain natural human hair. Because these types of hairpieces don’t have as many texture options, it is difficult to give them any real human characteristics other than hairline. However, they are much less likely to fall out than human hair, and you may find that the cost is more reasonable when purchasing these types of wigs.
Whether you choose headband wigs that contain natural human hair, synthetic hair, or a combination, it is important that you keep your head covered during any hair styling or hair removal process. This will help to ensure that your scalp doesn’t become irritated by the harsh texture of the synthetic hair. If you frequently style your hair using hot appliances, make sure that you wash your head before applying these products to your head. You should also be sure to take a shower before applying any type of hair product to your head so that you don’t get any build up of product on your scalp.
