OUR HOW-TO GUIDE: THE HALF CROWN TWIST

What you’ll need for the Half Crown Twist hairstyle:
  • Bobby pins (2-4)
  • Long, lace front wig with loose waves. We chose Limelight by Raquel Welch
  • Shaping Crème by BeautiMark
  • Style & Hold Hairspray by BeautiMark

1. Start with a long lace front wig. We used Limelight by Raquel Welch.

2. Take two 1 inch sections on left side, and after applying Shaping Crème by BeautiMark to your fingertips, twist the two sections until you’re about 3 inches from ends.

3. Pull the twist across and secure with a bobby pin.

4. Repeat Step 2 on the right side.

5. Repeat Step 3 on the right side.

For the final look, we recommend setting with Style & Hold Hairspray by BeautiMark. The Half Crown Twist hairstyle can be dressed up or down to complete any look.

OUR HOW-TO GUIDE: RE-STYLING A CURLY WIG





OUR HOW-TO GUIDE: THE UNDONE BUN

What you'll need for the Undone Bun hairstyle:
  • Elastic band (1)
  • Bobby pins (4-6)
  • Comb or brush with a pointed end.
    We used the Folding Brush by Revlon.
  • Hairspray

1. Use a comb or brush with a pointed end to create a clean side part.

2. Create a low pony using a clear elastic band (we used black so you can see the technique).

3. Get the loop by pulling the last section halfway through.

4. Take the ends of the pony and create a second loop of hair by pulling them back into the elastic band.

5. Secure the top loop by sliding a bobby pin in on the right side.

6. Add another pin on the left then separate both loops as desired. The straight ends give it a modern finish. The look shouldn't be too neat – the cool effect comes from imperfections!

7. Add final touches (Cascade has longer bangs that we pulled out to frame the face). Use hairspray to hold the style in place.

4. Gather all hair to one side and secure with a hair tie, creating a low pony.

5. Take the ends of your pony and loop them back through the hair tie.

6. Pull and fan the hair out in small sections.

OUR HOW-TO GUIDE: SIDE SWEPT

What you'll need for the Side Swept hairstyle:
  • Long wig. We used Adriana wig by Jon Renau.
  • Bobby pins (2-4)
  • Hairspray. We used Style & Hold Hairspray by BeautiMark.

1. Make a side part using a rattail comb.

2. Sweep hair over the tip of your ear and let it fall over your natural hairline. This will conceal the edge of the wig.

3. Pin hair to that side with bobby pins (crisscross the pins for the strongest hold). At this point you can apply some hairspray to tame flyways for a smooth finish. And Voilà! You’re done!

OUR HOW-TO GUIDE: ROLLED UPDO

What you'll need for the Rolled Updo hairstyle:
  • Long wig. We used Angie by Jon Renau.
  • Elastic band (1)
  • Bobby pins (2-4)
  • Hairspray

1. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Quick tip: choose a band that matches the hair color so it will blend in.

2. Split hair in half just above your elastic.

3. Loop the ponytail through the space created in step 2 (you’ll create an inside out ponytail).

4. Take the hair left out of the ponytail and wrap it around your finger to create a roll.

5. Secure the rolled up bun with bobby pins before releasing your finger. Quick tip: be sure to keep the hair low and over the hairline to disguise the edge of the wig cap.

6. Set the hairstyle with a medium hold hairspray.
