A wig cap is a nylon cap that you place on your head before wearing a wig. This will help to prevent your wig from falling off. Plus, your hair won't show and your head will stay cool. With a wig cap, you can wear a variety of wig hairstyles. You can either have a short wig or a long wig, since your hair won't peek out of it. Wig caps are ideal for women who want to change their hairstyle or are experiencing baldness.

Short-Length Wig Hairstyles

These types of wigs are ideal for a woman who wants to dramatically change her look. Short wigs come in a variety of hairstyles. There are boy-cut or pixie-cut wig hairstyles that crop closely to the head. Some of these wigs will also have fringe that sweep to the side of the face. There are also chin-length and bob-style wigs for the woman who wants to have her hair a little longer. These types of wigs may also come with fringe. Short-length wigs are easy maintenance for putting on and taking off. All you would need to do is shake it out before you put it on. Comb your fingers through the wig once it's on and style it to your needs. You can choose your natural hair colour or an unnatural hair colour such as pink or purple.

Medium-Length Wig Hairstyles

These wigs range from being above the shoulder to being slightly below the shoulder. These also come in a variety of hairstyles. Women can choose a straight, curly or wavy style wig. There are layered hairstyle wigs, medium-length bob-style wigs, asymmetrical styles or mullet styles. Just like with the short wig hairstyles, the medium-length wigs are just as easy to care for. Instead of using your fingers though, you may want to use a comb or brush to take out snarls and tangles. Medium-length wigs also come in a variety of hair colours. Women can choose one tonal hair colour, or one with highlights. They can also come in bold colours such as orange, bright red or deep black for those who want something different.

Long-Length Wig Hairstyles

Long-length wigs can also provide a dramatic change to any woman. This can give a woman with short hair or balding hair a completely different look. Long-length wigs come in curly, wavy or straight hairstyles. For example, women can choose on a long, curly wig hairstyle, layered, straight wig hairstyle or a sleek and straight wig hairstyle. Women have the option to choose a wig that has fringe. These wigs will also come in a variety of hair colour shades. The most popular kinds of long-length wigs are the ones that have highlights, according to the book "The World of Wigs, Weaves and Extensions." Be aware that long-length wigs are harder to maintain. You will need a brush or comb to take out tangles. You will also need to place it on a headstand, more so than a medium- length or short-length wig. A headstand will keep the wig in ready-to-wear condition.
