Whether it’s called a clip-in or a clip-on, this revolutionary wig has changed the perspective of many who were once leery about wearing wigs. There was always the hidden fear of the wig haphazardly slipping off in public or, shudder to think, someone else pulling it off. With its tiny comb clips, the clip-on wig is designed to remain securely fastened until it’s time to take it off. As with fashion, the clip-on has evolved with new styles and designs. There’s the whole, 1/2 or 3/4 wig. You can wear some of your real hair blended into the wig. To apply them is as simple as one, two, snap!

Things You'll Need


Whole Clip-on Wig

Braid — corresponding to the edges of your head — all of your hair to your head. Beginning at the left or right side of your hair (by your ear), braid going toward your forehead all the way around to the back of your head. Pin the braid ends with bobby pins to the braids on your scalp.

Place the wig on your head, inserting the clips into the braids around the edges of your whole head.

Snap the wig into place and style to preference.

1/2 Clip-on Wig

Braid the bottom half of your hair horizontally to the scalp beginning at the left or right side near your ear. Pin the braid ends with bobby pins to the braids on your scalp.

Place the wig on your head, inserting the clips into the edges of the braid at the middle and back of your head.

Snap the wig into place and style to preference.

3/4 Clip-on Wig

Braid a small portion of your hair at the crown of your head horizontally or in a U-shape. Pin the end of the braid back into the braid on your scalp with a bobby pin.

Comb or brush the rest of the bottom portion of your hair back into a ponytail tie or bun. Make the bun as small as you can, positioned at the nape of your neck. It might be necessary to braid your ponytail and tie it into a bun if you have a lot of hair.

Place the wig on your head inserting the clips into the horizontal or U-shaped braid at the crown your head and at the back of your head underneath the bun.

Snap the wig into place and style to preference.

Tips

  • Braids are used as anchors for all of the clips on a clip-on wig.

  • A whole clip-on wig covers the entire head, leaving none of your real hair to be blended in.

  • A 1/2 clip-on wig covers half the head, leaving the top half of your hair out to be blended.

  • A 3/4 clip-on wig covers the majority of your head, leaving only the very top portion of your hair out to be blended.
