If you are a wig lover, then a headband wig shouldn’t be strange to you. Either you’ve worn it before or you are now just reading about it. People who are a big fan of wigs have nothing but adoration for the headband wig for its simplicity, ease of use, and other attributes.

If you don’t know anything about this type of wig, you are reading the right article. Read on to find out more about this accessory that is all the rave now.

What is a headband Wig?

As the name describes, it is a type of wig that sits on the head just like a normal headband sits on the head. It is a piece of fashion-engineering marvel where a wig has been attached to the headband for easy mounting on the head. It is a wig without the stress of a sew-on wig, and with a different appearance to the easily worn cap-wigs out there.

There is more to what sets the headband wig apart from your normal, everyday wig. What is it you ask? It is the way the headband wig takes a backseat on your head and gives you the leeway to style your frontal hair however you want, this is why you would see most people refer to them as half-wigs. They have a strapping mechanism that ensures they sit on your head properly. They are comfortable, soft, and eye-catching.

How to wear a headband wig?

Wearing a headband wig requires some degree of finesse because while it is usually easy to tell that you are wearing a headband wig, the point of it all is to make it harder to guess that you have one on. There are things to do before wearing one, and after wearing one. Find out how you should wear a headband wig below:

  1. The first step of laying a headband on your head is to brush your hair. You are going to do it very gently too because you won’t be able to do it once the headband wig has been worn. You should use a small brush to brush your hair back gently without parting it. Once you’ve been able to do that, you are to lay your baby hair. That is the soft growing hair at the front of your scalp. Lay it gently, it adds to the aesthetic of your wig.
  2. After brushing your hair, throw on the headband wig taking the front of it up top to the mid-section of your head. Use Velcro to tighten the wig once that has been done. Using Velcro helps you hold down the hair so tight that you don’t have to worry about it falling off your head.
  3. Finally, you can pull the headband back to the front to reveal that stunning look you’ve been waiting for. You can change how deep you pull the headband. It can either be closer to the forehead or farther away, it all depends on the look you are going for.


The expert’s tip is that you get different colors and styles of a headband wig so that you can switch comfortably to match different outfits.
