Tutorial: How to put on wigcap by taeliac Tutorial: How to put on wigcap by taeliac
Here is the second of three tutorials I took pictures for a few days ago at school, for putting on and wearing wigs.

This one is about how to put on a wigcap (after your hair has been pincurled). For some reason, it seems longer than it should be - this is an insanely simple process, that after a few tries, turns out to take less than three minutes to do, but I wanted to be as detailed as possible with pictures and descriptions, so it makes sense.

For the pins, I have found these via Sally Beauty & Supply:

Smaller hair pins - [link]
Larger hair pins - [link] (you do not use these for putting on a wig cap - these are for the actual wig itself, but I wanted to include the link for ease of ordering!)

Unless you're wearing an extremely light colored wig, always get black pins (bobbi pins and hair pins) because they won't reflect light - they just look like the roots of hair.

Again, a thank you goes out to ~MedeaHiasobi for helping me with this (it's her hands with blue fingernails you see in the pictures :D) ~ you should go watch her, too!

Awesome! I'm gonna try this when i get my wig! Im going to have to use a bunch of hair pins cuz my hair is short and in caps xD

If it's really short, you can use toupee clips to anchor your wig down to - they're easy to get in, and you can find them at Sally's and sometimes places like Walgreens even - just put them in wherever you can't pincurl your hair, or where the wig is going to need extra support (like under big buns and the like) and use your wig pins into those instead of the pincurls, and your wig should stay put through anything :3

Will this work with really thick hair that goes down to the lower back? Because I always had a hard time stuffing my hair in a wig. :C

Yep, it definitely does, with the pincurls, or using two french braids down the back (I think I put that in the tutorial ^^;) I have the same type of hair, and I just wedged it into a wig (comfortably ;P) a few weeks ago, and no problems at all :3

I put my fair in french braids but without a wig cap. What an annoyance that was. :I thanks for the advice C:
