We get a lot of questions about the styling and care of your human hair wig. One of the main tools utilized to care for your wig or hair addition is a styrofoam or canvas head. You will need someplace to place/store your wig at night. We recommend a canvas wig head over a styrofoam head for a couple of reasons;
1) Canvas wig heads are more durable - they are not going to fall apart the way a styrofoam wig head will.
2) They also help absorb the moisture of a freshly shampooed wig, allowing it to dry faster.
3) They provide a more sturdy, comfortable base to operate from while styling your wig.
You will need a counter or suction clamp to place the wig head on - we prefer the counter clamp if you have the counter space to attach it to as it holds the head in position very firmly while still allowing you to move the clamp around from side to side and back to back while blow-drying and styling your hair.
Canvas wig heads come in two sizes - regular for medium to short hair lengths and "long-necked" for longer hair styles. You would order based on your head size - typically a 1/2 inch to 1'inch smaller than your head circumference to prevent any stretching of your wig or hairpiece.
