Step 1:   Put on a wig cap to protect your customer’s own hair.

Step 2:   Use rubbing alcohol with cotton balls to clean the toupee and your customer’s head. It is very important to clean off dirt and scalp oil before taping.

Step 3:   After the head is dry, take the tape and cut it with scissors into thinner, shorter pieces to the size and shape that suits your customer. If necessary, you can use a scalp protector before applying tape to prevent the tape pulling out your customer’s own hair. After positioning the tape, press down on the tape 5 or 6 times. When the double side tape is completely flat, pull off the back from one side to the other.

Step 4: Position the hair toupee, pull it slowly from the back to the front of the head.  Make sure your customer’s baby hair is not taped down in this process.  Position it where is needed, and continue to apply pressure to make the toupee completely secure on the head.

If you need a very durable tape, you can try ultra hold tape or super tape. Easy green tape is more suitable for the lace base. No shine tape is less shiny or visible when it is attached to the base. You can choose a kind of suitable tape for your customers according to their actual needs.

How to apply a toupee beside using tapes? The second way is using glue to attach a toupee. This is also a very common way to wear a toupee.

The skin base hair toupee is suitable to be attached with glue because the skin base is easier to be cleaned than lace base. Glue can hold a toupee more firmly compared with tapes. How to wear a toupee with glue? Similarly, you can equally put glue on the skin base, and then pull it slowly from the back to the front of the head. Please make sure your customer’s baby hair is not taped down in this process as well. Position it where is needed, and continue to apply pressure to make the toupee completely secure on the head. We don’t sell glue to customers because the liquid is forbidden to be shipped by plane.

After knowing how to attach a hair toupee with tapes and glue, now let’s discuss how to take it off.

It is highly recommended to use Rapid Release for soaking the units, but this product is not for use on the skin bases.

If you need something to soak the unit and can be applied to the skin, we would recommend the C22 or Action Release for numbers No-shine bonding tape, Ultra hold tape, and Ultra hold glue.

 

For tapes using on a lace base, you can use the Lace Release to remove the hair systems while leaving the tape on the head, and then use the C22 to remove the tape from the scalp.

Third, if your customers still have their own hair, we can use combs or clips to attach hair toupees on the head.

How to wear a toupee with combs or clips? If your customer has his own hair, we can sew combs or clips on a toupee, so the customer can fix the hair toupee on his own hair without having to use tape or glue.

Combs are usually added on the base of ladies' full cap wigs, we can seldom see combs on men’s toupees because combs can’t hold firmly with short hair compared with clips. Clips can be added on both men’s toupees and lady wigs. We can supply small, medium, and large size clips, and they can be in the flesh , brown, and black color. If a toupee has clips, your customer can easily wear or remove the toupee every day compared with attaching with tape or glue.

How to apply a toupee?  if your customers are allergic to tapes or glue, or how to apply a toupee if they don’t want to use tape or glue? We can also do glueless wigs for them.

Glueless wigs usually have a stretch net in the crown area, the stretch net is elastic, so it will make it easier for your customers to put on or take off their wigs, and they will feel very comfortable. Besides, the adjustable band is also added on sides and back, which can make the wig size suit your customer’s head perfectly. What’s more, to prevent their wigs from slipping down, we often add anti-slip silicone pu on front, temples, crown or the perimeter, so your customers don’t need to use tape or glue for attachment.

A medical wig is a kind of glueless wig, let’s take medical wig as an example. A medical wig is one of the most suitable wig types for customers who suffer from cancer or the ones who have lost their own hair completely.

The bases of medical wigs are of the highest quality. We usually use the super soft net or silk top for the base design at the top. Silk top does not have knots at all, just like the hair grows from your customer’s own scalp. We also use natural and breathable French lace in the front, so the front hairline will be invisible and realistic. For further comfort, the stretch net is used on the crown and back. Stretch net has perfect elasticity, so it can fit different shapes of heads well and give high comfort. And anti-slip silicone pu on the temples and front help prevent the wig from moving. Metal stay can also appear on temples to help hold firmly.

Please remember to remind your customers to pay special attention to clean the tape or glue thoroughly each time when they wash hairpieces, this is very important. If the tape or glue is mixed with the hair root for a long time, the hair will be damaged gradually, so when you pull the hair, it may break on the hair roots. Especially when the holes of a base is very small, such as fine mono, if the customer does not clean the shampoo or hair conditioner, glue, etc. completely, the fine mono base will corrode gradually while incorrect personal use, so there can be only hair loss in the partial fine mono area. In this case, we usually suggest the customers to use a spray-on hair conditioner, the spary-on conditioner is easier to be cleaned compared with traditional liquid hair conditioner.

In conclusion, knowing how to apply a toupee for your customer is necessary for your hair business and to improve your service level. To attach a hair toupee, you can use tape, glue, combs, clips, or order a glueless base design. Besides, you should also know how to maintain them in order to extend the lifespan of your customer’s toupee.
