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.

I hope this information has been helpful for you!
