Can I Cut the Extended Nape Off of My Wig?

We normally do not recommend cutting the extended nape off of a wig because it was made specifically for the style, but that’s not saying you can’t do so. We have had clients write in stating that they have cut the nape felt off completely with enough space for the adjusters and they said the wig fit much better in the back.

I have not heard or seen a demonstration of cutting the actual nape, but there may be some YouTube video tutorials out there that I may have overlooked. My recommendation is to try this on some of your old wigs that do not have this feature first before you try it on a wig you like and intend to keep.

Wig Keeps Falling in My Face!

Email from client:

“I have Eve by Jon Renau right now but I can’t wear it because the front falls in my face.”

Since you’re having an issue with Eve falling in your face, which can be a problem with styles like these sometimes, I do have some suggestion which might be helpful for you. Basically the wig needs to be trained to stay out of your face and one way of doing so is putting it in cold water, placing it on a head form/wig stand, and clipping the hair using hair clips where you desire. Often the drying helps speed up the training process.

Another thing you can try is a hair cream or holding spray. The contour creme is really ideal for styling and sculpting the hair and keeping pieces out of your face.

Another way to train is to use a streamer. You can use a wig approved round brush and then apply a little steam. Allow it to cool some and that will help redirect the hair. One tip, if you use a round brush, be careful not to get the bangs tangled and stuck.

Last of all (and the most extreme) you can trim the bangs which changes the look, but does keep the bangs in place. If you do go this route we highly recommend have a professional stylist with experience trimming wigs do this for you.

I hope this information proves helpful for you in keeping Eve out of your face.

Why You Should Try A Wig With Bangs

By: CysterWigs Contributor

When it comes to choosing a wig, every wig lover knows that the option they choose often involves tons of scrutiny and second-guessing based on one very bothersome detail – the part.

Middle part or side part? The answer truly depends on your personal preference. Both are stylish and can suit your look the way you want it to. However, any experienced wig wearer knows that a crappy part can ruin the look of a wig. Over-tweezed parts make your wig look thin and patchy, while under-tweezed parts can cause a wig to look really fake. Luckily for you, there’s a way to skip the pressure of perfecting your part altogether, while still rocking a flawless wig that suits you.

What’s the answer to your wig woes? One word – bangs. Why?

They’re quick and easy

Wigs with bangs are true lifesavers when it comes to saving time. Getting ready surely takes enough time as it is, and the last thing that you want when you’re running late for work or to that business meeting is to have to attack your wig’s hairline with gel or glue to ensure that the baby hairs look their best, or apply foundation to your part to help it look as natural as it can.

With bangs, there’s no hairline or part to worry about every time you wear your wig. Simply pop the wig on, brush and go! It’s that quick, and looks just as stunning.

They’re a style sensation

Bangs will never go out of style, and that’s for sure. Nothing beats the bold look of blunt, thick bangs, or the casually cute look of wispy bangs. They can look as natural and effortless as you want, or they can be a major fashion statement for your look. It’s up to you!

Bangs work on every style of wig. Your options are quite endless. Bobs or long tresses, straight or curly, thick density or natural density – bangs are so versatile.

Thinking of bangs? Consider your Face Shape!

Finding a wig with the right bangs is essential. Your face shape plays a grand part in the style you choose, as some bangs can highlight your best features better than others.

Round face? A wig with thick, side swept bangs can slim your face while bringing out your eyes.

Square face? A wig with straight bangs that rest right at or below your eyebrows balance your face without dragging down your features.

Heart-shaped faces pair well with wigs with layered bangs swept across the forehead to bring attention to the center of your gorgeous face.

Oval faces pair well with pretty much any type of bangs! Lucky you! You’re free to browse many types of wigs, and even to wear several with different bang styles.

Bangs are no longer the style of the dorky girl on TV – that trope is long outdated. Bangs are now fashionable and just plain fun to wear.

Added to the time that you’ll save every day getting ready, there’s definitely no reason for you not to get your hands on a wig with bangs ASAP!
