Long-Haired Wig FAQs
Why should you choose the long hairstyle wig?
Long hair has many advantages. You can style it in a multitude of ways – curling it, waves, updos, ponytails, pigtails, braids, etc. Long hair provides the greatest versatility. You can choose to wear it all one length, layered, or with multiple lengths. You can have the wig cut and styled just like real hair on your head if you get bored with the wig’s current look.
If you choose a human hair wig, you can also color it to change your look. Take your wig to your stylist for a professional color because there are special considerations to coloring wig hair.
Since hairstyles change, using a wig with long hair gives you versatility. Unlike your actual hair which if you cut and it looks bad, you have to wait to fix it, if a bad cut messes up a wig’s look, just buy a new one. Because the hair is long, you can pin up different sections of it or wear parts of it in clips, so you better frame your face.
Can you straighten a wavy or curly-haired wig?
Theoretically, you could, but it makes more sense to purchase a straight-haired wig. These long hair wigs are already styled straight. A wavy or curly-haired wig of natural hair could lose its curl spring from straightening.
Can you curl a straight hair wig?
You can curl or wave a straight-haired wig with no problem. The hair will hold curl just as the hair on the head, growing from your roots would. Synthetic hair cannot get heat styled. Choose an HD synthetic or human hair wig for heat styling. You can braid the hair on any of these wigs. You can also have these long-haired wigs styled in an updo.
What kind of color can you use on these wigs?
While it may be tempting to use box color on your wig or an at-home temporary wash, you need to take your wig to the stylist for these purposes. Take your owner’s manual or materials with you so your stylist can review them and use only professional products specifically suited to the synthetic, HD synthetic, or human hair used.
When should you purchase multiple wigs?
If you want to frequently change the look you wear, you should invest in multiple wigs. While you can style long-haired wigs, one of the reasons to buy wigs is to save yourself time and to diversify the looks you wear.
You should not frequently color wigs because the chemicals can damage them. If you want to wear a variety of long-haired looks, choose the following at a minimum: – An all-one-length, blunt cut ends wig, – A forehead bangs, a layered wig, – A long shag cut wig, – A multiple lengths, long hair wig.
Many people confuse layers with lengths, and they do not refer to the same thing. A bang consists of one layer, while the remaining hair consists of another. This is the most basic two-length look, and neither necessarily includes layers. Layering and thinning both refer to methods of creating or reducing volume. Fluffy hair often has layers but could be one length.
What is a U-part wig, and why do you only see them sold in long hair wigs?
The U-part actually is not a hair part like you would think of it. This type of wig has an opening at the top shaped like a U. This area lets the wearer’s natural hair at the crown show through. If you want to hide hair loss, it will not work. If you want to have long hair and have cut your hair short, you use this wig to make it seem like you still have long hair.
This type of modified half wig only has hair from just beneath the crown to the tip of the hair length. You can choose this wig if you have healthy hair on top of your head. The hair color diversity ranges widely, so you can easily match the U-part wig to your natural hair color for a seamless look. The cap type of these hairpieces provides an invisible mesh or open crown so people cannot tell you wear a wig.
What long-haired wig hairstyles are there?
You have many looks from which to choose when wearing long hair wigs. These wigs come in the same styles as you would typically get your long hair cut and styled. You can even take your wig into your stylist for a blowout. Wearing your hair long does not mean giving up a face-framing look. You can have your stylist cut the front in a shorter length that frames your face or causes your cheekbones to pop. Choose from the following popular styles:
- – Highlighted long straight hair in one or multiple lengths,
- – Feathered layered straight hair,
- – Choppy layers with bangs,
- – Long bob in the shoulder- or top-of-the-chest length,
- – Long shaggy cut,
- – Swoopy layered, mid-back U-cut,
- – Short, medium, and long layers,
- – V-cut layers,
- – Beachy waves.

What are the parts of a long-haired wig?
Wigs provide a simple solution to a bad hair day. Their uncomplicated construction makes them relatively cheap to construct. A wig designer attaches hair to a cap that fits onto the head and uses elastic, clips, or glue to attach to the existing hair or scalp.
The hair may be hybrid, human, or synthetic. The cap comes in numerous styles with the most common lace front. Other options include the capless cap, hand-tied, and monofilament.
What is the difference between the hybrid, human or synthetic hair in these wigs?
Human hair hairpieces look the most realistic, feel natural to the touch, and cost more than other types. A synthetic wig costs the least, but unless it uses HD synthetic material, you cannot use heat to style it. On an HD synthetic wig, you can use any styling tools because they can handle the heat of a curling iron or flat iron. The materials used for synthetic wigs vary and affect the quality of the wig.
Some hybrid hairpieces use both human and synthetic hair. These have a mid-range cost and you have more flexibility in styling them.
When a wig uses human hair, it comes from a donor who either sold or donated their tresses. Those who do this must-have natural hair, also referred to as virgin hair since it has never been chemically straightened, colored, or permed. This results in a very healthy head of hair.
What does the cap type have to do with the wig and how it fits?
Much variation exists in wig caps. The cap matters to the design because you need a good, natural fit that looks as if it really belonged to you and you grew it from your own scalp. The right wig cap makes wearing what can be a heavy, hot wig comfortable or at least bearable.
Many wig companies offer each hairpiece in more than one cap style. If you already wear wigs, you might have tried each style, but if you just started wearing wigs or you tried before but hated them, then you need to try on each type of cap style because the wrong cap style probably made you hate the wig, not the hair.
Although you should shop online, try each type of cap on at a bricks-and-mortar store so you can feel the cap style before buying. You can get the best deals online, but nothing replaces trying on each type so you know which cap to order.
Lace Front Wig Caps
Beyoncé favors the lace front cap for its natural looking hairline says her hairstylist. You can find lace front caps with a hairline that extends from temple-to-temple or ear-to-ear. The latter provides more coverage and you can wear the hair in updos or swept or slicked back without it being obvious that you wear a wig.
This type of cap does loosen over time so, you will need to take it to your stylist periodically to get the cap tightened. Caps using a lace front require careful handling. You could tear the wig if you handle it too roughly.
Capless Wig Cap
This type uses the wefted or open-cap but gets called capless. It attaches hair to an elastic strip so the top of the head gets to breathe. While it provides the coolest wear, it can be easy to tell that these are fake.
Monofilament Wig Cap
This cap type also uses a lace material and the hair gets hand-tied to the cap. It looks the most like natural hair growth since the crown area resembles a natural head of hair. They usually reserve this for human hair.
Hand-tied Wig Caps
Considered a luxury wig, each hair gets hand-tied to the wig cap. The four-way stretch cap used in these constructions provides flexible wear that looks the most natural of the options. Each of these caps requires about 40 hours to construct, hence the cost
