6. Headband Wig
The perfect combination of the handmade special ice silk hairband and the wig constitutes a headband wig. This kind of hairband has certain elasticity and can conform to the specific contour of a person's head. The Velcro on the rear makes it easier to adjust the tension. Don't worry about the top of the headgear slipping, clips at the front and back can keep the hair firmly in place. Because there is no need to use any glue, this hair can be reused without causing damage to your hair, which is easier to use than a lace wig.
7. U/V Part Wig
The difference between U/V-shaped wigs is that the shape of the wig cap is different, one is U-shaped, the other is V-shaped, which can expose the top of your head, and a small amount of hair, which looks more real and natural. To fix the wig, pls use the small clips on the top and the adjustment belt behind the mesh cap. The V-shaped headgear has 5 clips at the top, while the U-shaped headgear has only 3, which is also the best way to distinguish between U and V-shaped wigs.
Before buying these two wigs, you'd better choose the same color as your hair, or dye it the same color, or it will not match your hair.
