Tools you need
Before you start curling your synthetic wig, you need to gather the necessary tools. Here are the things you need: 1. A wig stand or a mannequin head 2. A curling iron with adjustable temperature 3. Heat protectant spray 4. Hair clips 5. Styling comb 6. Hairspray
Preparing your wig
The first thing you need to do is to prepare your synthetic wig. Remove any tangles or knots using a styling comb. Then, place the wig on a wig stand or a mannequin head to make it easier to work on.
Adjust the curling iron temperature
Next, adjust the temperature of your curling iron according to the synthetic wig’s specifications. Synthetic wigs can melt or burn if exposed to high heat, so it is essential to set the temperature to a safe level.
Apply heat protectant spray
To protect your synthetic wig from heat damage, apply a heat protectant spray. Spray it evenly on the wig, focusing on the ends and the sections you want to curl.
Section your wig
Section your wig into small portions using hair clips. This will make it easier to curl your wig and ensure that you do not miss any sections.
Curl your wig
Take a small section of your synthetic wig and wrap it around the curling iron barrel. Hold it for a few seconds and release the curl. Repeat this process for all the sections you want to curl.
Use a styling comb
After curling each section, use a styling comb to loosen the curls and create a natural look. Gently comb through your wig, starting from the ends and working your way up.
Once you have curled your synthetic wig, apply a light mist of hairspray to set the curls. This will help your curls last longer and keep your wig looking great.
