What is a braided wig?
If you want to try wearing weave but want something that looks natural, a braided wig might be for you. Braids are made with real human hair and they don’t look like they come from a pack. They also last longer than synthetic wigs—you can wash and style them just like your own hair. The downside is that some of them are expensive, and there are lots of different types so it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we put together an introduction on how to wear a braided wigs, which will give you all you need to get started.
Types of braid styles
There are three basic styles for braiding hair that can be worn with wigs and hairpieces. The most common is a French braid, which is similar to how you would make your own hair look when you’re styling it. However, instead of using all of your natural hair, use only two sections on either side of your head. This can be done in whatever size section you wish; just remember that larger sections will take longer because more hairs must be pulled through each time you cross over them. If a style like this isn’t right for you, simply switch up which sides are being used and move forward as described below. The second type of style is called an English braid.
Hiding the hairline
It’s important that your natural hairline isn’t exposed or visible. You want people looking at your hair, not what is hiding it. When you tie your wig, you want it tight enough so that it stays in place and doesn’t move around but loose enough so that you can still pin and braid extensions into your wig with ease. If your wig does shift in any way, simple pull on an extension strand and rearrange until you get it just right for you!
Getting used to wearing it
For any new hairstyle, especially an elaborate one like hair extensions, it’s normal to be nervous about putting it on for the first time. Make sure you give yourself enough time when you’re getting ready so that you don’t feel rushed or panicked. Wear your new hairstyle out of your comfort zone at first; if you make plans with friends who are supportive and not critical, you’ll build up confidence quickly! It also helps to go ahead and practice putting on your hairpiece beforehand (or at least ask someone else to show you how).
