How To Curl Human Hair Wigs?

Women both like straight hair wigs and wavy hair wigs. As the first human hair wig, people always will choose straight hair wig. Straight hair is easy to maintain, and it is also a classic hairstyle. But wearing the same hairstyle for a long time is kind of boring.

Buying a new wavy hair wig may seem a bit wasteful. Most people will choose to curl hair wigs by themselves at home.

3) use chopsticks

This is a novel method that I found from a South Korean TV variety show. A hairstylist rolled the hair onto some chopsticks, and use a hairdryer to blow them for about 10-15 minutes. After taking the chopsticks down from the hair, people can get ideal curls.

1.2 curl human hair wigs with hair curlers

1) Set the hair curlers on a lower heat setting. A hair wig is not heat resistant. Excessive temperatures can damage the hair wig.

2) Preheat the hair curlers for a few minutes.

3) When the curlers are heating, start to wrap the hair weave, curl the hair extensions of a wig.

4) Curl the hair to the iron for a while until it creates a curl. Curl each section one by one in this way.

2. Curling human virgin hair wigs to get different hair textures

It is possible to curl a straight hair wig to a wavy hair wig with different hair textures.

2.1 body wave hair

The curls of body wave hair are bigger, looser than other wavy hairs. This is a hair texture that is the most similar to virgin human natural hair. People who want to have a wavy and natural wig look can consider curling the wig to a body wave wig.

2.2 deep wave hair and loose deep wave hair

Deep wave hair and loose deep wave hair both are ladder-shaped, ups and downs in the same direction. They are more regular than other irregular hair textures. The main difference between these two hairstyles is that the curls of loose deep wave hair are looser than deep wave hair.

2.3 loose wave hair

Loose wave hair is characterized by the feature of the “S” shape. This special “S” shape makes it looks individual and attractive.

Curly hair is welcomed by most customers, especially by African American women. From the appearance, curly hair has smaller, tighter, and irregular curls that can make the curly human hair wig appear fluffy and soft.

2.5water wave hair

The name of water wave hair is from its look. Because water wave hair is full of ups and downs, like water ripples. On the one hand, this hair texture gives hair volume. On the other hand, a water wave hair wig also offers hair movement to the original wig.
