Wearing Hats With Wigs
2020-07-22

Accessorizing your style is the easiest way to change up your everyday look. Add a hat! But this may be an issue for a wig wearer. The weight of a hat leaves the wearer feeling as though their wig isn’t secured. Wearing wigs under hats can be challenging in summer due to sweat. However, with a little bit of technique, wearing your favorite hat on the wig can be simple and cool. Keep reading to accomplish a covered wig look.


Wearing a hat over your wig can be beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, it helps protect the wig from fading and damage during long-time sun exposure. Strong sun exposure will make the wig become dry and thus get tangled. So wearing a hat can protect your skin and the wig at the same time. In winter or cold weather, wearing a hat over a wig can offer extra warmth. Also it helps you secure the wig in windy days. In addition, if you are tired of styling the wig, a hat is the best tool to complete your look while still looking stylish.


If you’ve ever worn a hat with a wig you know how uncomfortable it can really be. Here are a few tips you can wear hats with your favorite wig styles. You can wear wigs that already have hats sewn onto them. Wearing a hat on top of any wig that you own may be a better option for you.




The first step is to buy the right type of hat. Hats made of heavier materials can add a lot of heat to your head, no matter the season. Be sure to choose something lightweight. Forcing your hat down on top of your wig isn’t the best way to secure it into place. If the hat moves so will your wig. Choose a hat with a larger cap size, you can lightly place it on top of any wig avoiding damage. Keep in mind that even if you buy a hat one size too big, when taking if off, your wig still may move.


Wear anything on top of your wig can cause it to become frizzy or tangled beyond repair. To avoid this, smooth your hair backwards before applying the hat. Also be sure to use a daily condition and protection spray on your wig beforehand to prevent any damage to delicate fibers or hand-tied knots.


Never force the hat down over your wig. Squishing the hat down over wig hair tends to flatten and crimp the hair, making it stand out at odd angles instead of falling naturally from the head. Be extra careful when you place the hat so you won’t ruin the original wig style. And when you remove the hat, the wig style will be still intact and natural.


When removing your hat from your wig, firmly press one finger on top of the front hairline of your piece and gently pull off the hat in a backwards direction. The smooth back top should fall forward with all the volume you had when it was originally covered.


If someone who can’t keep cool in a wig no matter what, a hair piece with open weft may be the choice for you. So the top of the head can be free and keep cool all day long. Simply apply the piece and place your hat of choice on top, allowing for a stylish touch to any headwear.


Just because you wear a wig doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a hat, too. Have fun with the options. Wigs and hats provide great ways to express your personality and burnish your look.
