Give your hair dimension

When wearing a wig, you may get an unnatural look that comes from your hair looking like it's an all-smooth cap. This can be rectified by pulling some of the hair from the sides of your head to give your head more dimension.

Pull the hair from the sides of the head and smooth them down using some gel. Apply this method particularly to the temples, where the hair lies comfortably. Along with the ear tabs, this makes the look a lot more authentic. Make sure you have just enough gel so the hair does not become stiff. Do not use spray on top of the gel in order to maintain nice natural movement.

Wigs often become too stiff, giving off an unnatural vibe. When your wig becomes too stiff, this is often an indicator that you need to wash it. Ideally, your wig should be washed about every 7-10 wearings, if you wear the wig all day long.

You have the option of having your wig cleaned and styled at your salon about every 10-15 wearings, depending on the season and the type of fiber used in making your wig.

Having the versatility of a bob wig, particularly with bangs, means you do not have to limit yourself to what looks natural. Bob wigs should have you embrace aesthetically-challenging ideas.

Here are some ways to change up your bob wigs with bangs:
