I suppose that all interested have already gone to the hairdresser, after reading how to cut your hair to wear a toupee. Well, first of all, since it is usually the most typical, reassure you. Surely the hairdresser will have cut your hair more than expected, but nothing happens, in no time it will be at its optimum point.
First hair has to be dry, maybe a little damp, but not completely wet as we would have a hard time lifting the bangs. Later with the dryer we give it a little shape, lifting the bangs and combing the sides backwards. Basically what you have to do is pull all the hair back, the bangs, the sides and the top of the head.
Now is the time to apply fixative. There are people who have been combing their hair in this way for a long time and also have quite strong hair and that simply with the dryer they have enough. It also depends on the effect we want to give it. If we prefer a wet effect, nobody saves us from the gel, if we want a more natural effect, we either leave it with the dryer or apply wax.
I prefer to combine it, for the day to day I leave it with the dryer and for special occasions I apply gel. The moment of applying the gel is key. It must be distributed in such a way that there is no excessive amount left in any place, especially on the sides. Obviously in the bangs we will apply a little, but only a little, nothing to go overboard, extra hair gel.
To give it shape, I recommend using your hands, as they give it a more natural appearance.. As I said before, we comb the sides backwards and the bangs are completely back or a little lopsided, a matter of taste. The area where the line is theoretically must be concealed, that is, it should be parted but not noticeable, lifting the hair a little in this area.
If we want an extra fixation, we can use lacquer. With a little in the toupee and on the side where the line is theoretically located, it is more than enough to hold what is necessary.
