How to style a wig for an evening out
One of the great advantages of a wig is that you can style it days before an event and have peace of mind that your hair is done exactly the way you want it.
Hair styling with wigs can feel like a journey into uncharted territory. A multitude of variables must be considered. But before you get there, first of all decide what type of look is it that you want?
This will guide all your next actions and choices, be it to opt for a synthetic or human hair wig, how to style your own hair under the wig and which hairstyling products you should use.
In general, synthetic hair wigs do not require as much styling as a human hair wig. The synthetic wig is made to retain its shape after it was washed and left to dry. So it goes without saying that if you choose a synthetic wig for that special night out, you can pretty much choose one of the many beautiful styles that are available and know you will not need to do much styling yourself.
The Lola Silk long body wave middle part lace synthetic wig in natural black is an excellent choice for an evening out. Approximately 28 inches in length, this body wave curly wig is constructed of LolaSilk smooth synthetic hair. Intricately handcrafted, the hand-made lace middle part provides a realistic hairline that blends seamlessly with any scalp. The hair on our synthetic wigs is a stunning imitation of healthy natural black human hair.
If you prefer your own touch to your styling efforts, a human hair wig is the natural choice. Human hair wigs can be styled in much the same as your natural hair but will need extra care when it comes to your choice of products and hairstyling tools.
A golden rule is to stick to products and tools that have specifically been designed for human hair wigs. A night out usually calls for a touch of glamour, elegance and sophistication. Key to the look is whether you will wear your wig up or down.
Do it up
A low chignon bun
To achieve this look, simply pull your hair back into a ponytail, twist it, and secure it with bobby pins and a ponytail holder. Before you arrange your wig's hair into a bun, carefully tease the hair at the wig's crown with a wide-tooth comb to give volume. Any long wig will do for this timeless look.
