Putting on a wig cap properly can ensure your natural hair is fully tucked in and be a good foundation for your wig. In this article, we will walk you through the beginner’s guide on how to properly wear a wig cap.

Things You Need To Prepare

In order to have your wig cap put over your head properly, here are a few items you need to prepare:

  • Hair ties (optional)

How To Put On A Wig Cap: Step By Step


Step 1. Make sure your natural hair is ready

Before you put your wig cap on, you have to get your hair clean and dry. Brush the hair to remove tangles. If you have long hair, you can put your hair into a low ponytail or braid to make it less bulky when you put on the wig cap. You can check out how to put your long hair under a wig cap right here.

Step 2. Hold the wig cap

Hold the wig cap with both hands and spread it out. Make sure to hold it in the right direction to put it on your head. The wig cap might have a label for you to check to see which side is correct.

Step 3. Place the wig cap on your head

Place the wig cap on your brow and slide it over your head, making sure it completely covers your natural hair. Pull the wig cap down toward your nape of the neck, ensuring that it sits firmly and pleasantly.

Step 5. Tuck in loose hair

Check for any stray hairs poking through the wig cap. Tuck them in gently to achieve a clean and glossy appearance. If your hair is exceptionally long or thick, you can bind it using bobby pins.

What Type Of Wig Cap You Should Use

Wig caps come in various types and colors. It’s best to choose the one that matches your skin tone to get the most natural look. Here are some of the popular wig cap choices:

Nylon wig cap

This is made from the same material as our pantyhose. They are imperceptible and invisible beneath your wig. This wig cap is suitable for people who use wigs on a regular basis and want a wig cap that provides a natural-looking hairline beneath the wig.
Nylon wig cap

Mesh wig cap

This wig cap is similar to a fishnet stocking; it has elasticity and flexibility. It is extremely breathable and keeps you cool under the wig because it has holes in it. This wig cap is worth considering if you live in a warm environment or work as a stage actor under hot theatre lights.

Spandex wig cap

These wig caps are thicker than nylon wig caps yet remain flexible and breathable. Some people think wearing spandex caps without wigs is stylish. Spandex wig caps are particularly durable because they can withstand a lot of washing and wearing.

Benefits Of Wearing A Wig Cap

  • Beside the basic functions, wig caps offer several benefits that contribute to a comfortable and seamless wig-wearing experience.
    • They form a flat foundation for the wig - A well-fitting wig cap smooths out the lumps and bumps in your cornrows. Furthermore, they make the wig sit flatter against your head, giving it a more natural appearance.
    • One of the key advantages of wearing a wig cap is that it protects your real hair. The cap serves as a barrier between your natural hair and the wig, decreasing friction and the chance of harm to your natural strands. This is especially useful for people who have hair loss or have sensitive hair and scalp issues.
    • They keep your wig in place - Wig caps keep your wig from falling off. This is especially useful for people who have little to no hair because it provides your wig something to grip other than your skin.
    • Wig caps assist in keeping your head clean and sanitary. They absorb excess sweat and oils, preventing them from reaching the wig and allowing you to go longer between wig washes. Furthermore, the airy and lightweight quality of wig caps improves overall comfort, making them appropriate for extended wear.
