Synthetic Character Wigs

All wigs from the princess collection are made on a standard medium stretchable cap and typically fits size 21” to 23” head sizes. The wigs also come with adjustable straps to help create a custom and more comfortable fit.

HOW DO I MEASURE MY HEAD SIZE?

For a quick, approximate measurement, use a soft measuring tape and measure from the center of the front hairline, around the head going under the occipital bone in the back, and back around to the center of the hairline.

Example

  • Average: 22" inches
  • Average/ Large: 22.5" inches
  • Large: 23" inches

IS THE COLOR OF THE WIG EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE PICTURE SHOWN ON THE WEBSITE?

Color settings can vary between users so please consider that the color represented on your screen may be slightly different from the actual color of the wig.

CAN I COLOR MY WIG?

Synthetic Character Wigs

No, synthetic hair should not be colored since the fiber is not like human hair where color is absorbed and made permanent.

WILL THE COLOR OF THE MY WIG CHANGE OVER TIME?

Synthetic Character Wigs

Synthetic wigs do not fade in color over time since the fiber itself is manufactured with permanent color.

WHAT IS A SKIN TOP?

This refers to the top of the wig where part of the hair appears to be growing out of flesh, giving it a more natural appearance. Our skin tops appear very natural in skin tone and texture, and they are large in size for additional parting space.

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A WIG CAP BEFORE PUTTING ON THE WIG?

Whether you have long or short hair it is recommended that your wear a wig cap.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY FOR ME TO WEAR A WIG IF I HAVE LONG HAIR?

Prepping your hair to fit under your wig cap is an important step in insuring a proper and comfortable fitting wig.

One easy and quick option is to first divide your hair in two sections, braiding each section and wrapping them around your head. Then pin each section with a bobby pins and cover your hair with your wig cap, making sure all hair is tucked in. You’re now ready to apply your wig.

HOW DO I PIN ON MY WIG?

Your wig can be pinned in many various ways.

Standard bobby pins are recommended for pinning your wig in front of your ears at the ear tabs, behind your ears, around the hairline and nape. These bobby pins should be gripping BOTH the wig edge and your wig cap, securing them together.

Open end hair pins can be used around the hairline and nape to pin down draping, and as an anchor in the crown area for added security.

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO ENSURE THE SECURE FIT OF MY WIG?

All our wigs come with adjustable straps, as well as added combs in the front and back to create a more custom and secure fit. Be sure to also pin your wig to your wig cap in various places to ensure the wig does not fall off.

SENSITIVE SKIN?

Even the best materials can irritate very sensitive skin. To help, we recommend wearing a wig liner made of soft fabric with minimal seams.

This will protect your skin from any friction from the wig and aid in keeping the inside of your wig dry and clean.

If the problem persists when wearing our wigs please consult a dermatologist before purchasing another wig.

ARE THE WIGS PRE-CUT?

Synthetic Character Wigs

In some cases our characters wigs will come pre-curled or pre-cut with a fringe depending on the character.

CAN I TRIM OR APPLY ANY HAIR STYLING PRODUCT ON MY WIG?

All wigs can be cut and styled with most styling products. It is advised to have experience with cutting or know a stylist who can help you create a style for you.

Do not use hair color or other permanent chemicals on synthetic hair fiber.

CAN I USE HOT TOOLS ON MY WIG?

Synthetic Character Wigs

Wigs made from 100% Futura® fiber wigs both look and feel like human hair and can be styled using your favorite heat styling tools, up to 377°.

Wigs made from Hiperlon fiber may require additional cooling time and a lower heat temperature.

For example, when curling the Ariana in Mermaid Red (Hiperlon fiber) you should hold the curl in your hand for about 5 seconds before releasing it. This allows the curl to cool and maintain its shape.

WHAT STYLING PRODUCTS SHOULD I USE?

You can use almost any styling products on your wig you feel will not be too harsh. Typically, wigs can be maintained with simple hairspray for styling, or a mist of water or a light detangling solution to tame curls.

BRUSHES AND SUPPLIES

You can use almost any brush of your choice on your Fairytale Wig. It is advised to maintain your wig with a wide tooth comb and soft bristle brush paddle brush. Avoid using hard bristle brushes unless needed.

HOW LONG WILL MY WIG LAST?

Synthetic wigs can last 2 years or more but many factors contribute to the life span of a wig.

These factors include how often the wig is used, styling methods, coloring, and normal wear and tear.

HOW CAN I UNTANGLE MY WIG?

Gently comb out tangles with a wide tooth comb, starting from the ends and work your way upward. Once your wig is manageable, you can switch from a wide tooth comb to a soft bristle paddle brush.

HOW DO I WASH MY WIG?

Synthetic Character Wigs

  1. Comb through your wig with a wide tooth comb.
  2. Add one tablespoon of mild shampoo to a sink filled with cold water.
  3. Put the wig into the water for one minute and swish gently.
  4. Rinse well in cold water thoroughly.
  5. Lightly towel dry to absorb excess water, and hang the wig to dry.
  6. Do not style the wig until it is completely dry.
  7. Hair setting is not necessary if your wig still has it’s original texture (not altered by heat tools). Curls will bounce back into their natural form when the hair is completely dry.
  8. To maintain its natural texture, minimize heat styling, rough brushing and pulling of hair.
