How to Wear A Hat Over A Wig

Because you wear so many hats in your lives, jobs, and families, here’s our Top 10 Tip List as a “hats off” to you when wearing a hat over a wig or hairpiece, contemplating head covers, and praying for a heavenly halo wig:

  • Best Buy: We’re not talking about the digital store! Invest in the right type of hat.
  • Material Girl (or Man): Model Madonna and choose lightweight materials to avoid overheating, especially for our desert dudes and divas!  
  • Vex the Veg Head: Save the squash for your stir fries; don’t hold your hat and head hostage when applying a hat over your wig. Remember light is right! 
  • Bobby Pins: Use a duo of good ole bobby pins to secure each side. Add two or three at the nape of your neck as well: safety in numbers, as your mama always preached! Just make sure you're careful not to puncture the wig cap with the bobby pins.
  • Glued Glitz: Wig glue, a magic band, extra wig clips, and other glitz tricks will keep that hat as tight as J. Lo's jeans!
  • Spritzer: Not the red, white, or blush variety, but wear conditioning spray for the fall-winter blues to keep that wig from pulling a Marilyn Monroe, and look nice and shiny under your hat!
  • Notorious B.I.G.: Regardless of whether you can rap or not, buy a hat one size too big to achieve that perfect hat/wig harmony!
  • Charlie’s Angel: Try halo wigs for hats and be Boho brilliant.
