3 Tips For Wearing Your Wig In A High Ponytail

how to wear your wig in a ponytail

Scene Stealer WigThe high ponytail. Does the mere thought instantly scare you? For many wig wearers, they would dear attempt such a thing.

They’re scared of the rim of the cap showing and what if (gasp!) the wig falls off?

Fortunately, there are work-arounds to this problem. Here are a few tips to know and remember if you want to put your hair up in that ponytail.




  1. Cut some baby hairs around the nape.

This adds a look of realism and makes it appear as though it’s your real hair. There’s nothing quite like that harsh line of a wig cap to give you away. If you do have real bio hair growing, this might not be as noticeable, but even still, it doesn’t hurt to cut a few shorter hairs in around this area.

Or, if you’re a bit frightened to do so, consider simply investing in a wig that already has them cut in, such as the Jon Renau Zara wig. This wig is perfect for the high ponytail and may wig wearers purchase this style just for this purpose.

  1. Use It Stays.

Seriously, don’t be afraid of this stuff. While it feels a little like glue, your wig can easily come off after using it and it won’t pull out bio hair. What it will do is give you a perfectly secure fit so you can go out with confidence that your wig isn’t going anywhere.

We recommend you use the It Stays around the front hairline to secure the lace front/front of the wig and if using a really high ponytail, you may want to use it along the nape area as well.

  1. Keep things loose.

Not only are looser ponytails more on-trend right now, but they also help to prevent your hair from looking too ‘wiggy’. Gather up the strands in an imperfect fashion, pull the elastic around it and then tug out a few sections ever so slightly to create that messy look.

This is also great when doing a messy bun updo as well.

So don’t be afraid to experiment with your wig any longer. Putting it into a ponytail doesn’t need to be scary or have you worrying that you’ll give yourself away when you step out of the house. With a little bit of practice and the right techniques, you can certainly get that wig looking better than ever in your ponytail.
