U-part wigs are hair extensions that are sewn on a U-shaped wig cap that features fine sheer mesh and clips underneath. Typically, U-part wigs come in an array of sizes to suit your needs.
You can choose a center, middle, or side U-part to achieve your desired style.
No!! Most of our hair match non-relaxed or non-permed natural afro hair. And even if they don't, you are leaving such a small amount of your own hair loose anyway (about the size of two fingers, that's all), you should be able to get away with it!
You could also press or flat-iron your hair at the front, if that helps with the blending.
a. Measure your hair first. Place the U-part wig over your head. This step will let you know how much hair you need to part for a seamless look.
b. Part your hair next. Using a rattail comb, part your hair at your crown to match the U-part wig shape. Be sure to also part about an inch-wide section from your hairline to the ear. Clip this hair out of the way. This will come in handy when you’re ready to style your hair.
c. Create your foundation after hair parting. Try to get your remaining hair as flat as possible to make your wig lay evenly. Kick things off by creating small Dutch braids or twists, making sure to braid or twist your hair to the ends. For those short strands, you could simply smooth your mane with a bit of hair gel to keep your strands in place.
d. Wig it out. Holding the U-part wig at both sides, place the wig over your head and snap the clips in place to cover your braids. As a result, your U-part wig should lay flat on your head with your hair part clipped in place.
e. Adjust your wig. As we mentioned above, U-part wigs typically come equipped with an adjustable strap and clips to give you the best possible fit. This helps to reduce the risk of the wig sliding on your head.
f. Comb out and mask your hair extensions. Your U-part wig look is almost complete! Now that your wig is firmly in place, you need to disguise the hair extensions on your wig. Release your hair part along the sides and the crown of your head. Comb through with a wide-tooth comb for a gorgeous finish.
