How Do you Hide the Band in a Headband Wig

by Derek

If you’re looking for a wig that has the appearance of natural hair, headbands are perfect for you. They’re easy to use, and they allow you to style your hair any way you want.

Headbands come in many different sizes and styles. Some have a band that wraps around your head while others have a band that stays on top of your head. The key to using either type is to hide the headband wig so it doesn’t show through when you wear it.

Here are some tips on how to hide the band in a headband wig:

Use Velcro tabs or clips

Velcro tabs can be found at any beauty supply store and are used to hold back long hair that is pulled up into a ponytail or bun. They work well for hiding the band in a headband wig because they’re flexible and easy to attach to the inside of your wig cap. You simply stick one end of the tab under each ear, then stretch it across the top of your head until you reach the other side. The nice thing about this method is that it’s pretty much invisible from all angles except straight down at eye level.

Tease your hair before putting it on

Teasing your hair helps give it more volume and thickness, which helps hide any gaps between your scalp and the wig’s base. Teasing also creates more friction between strands of human hair and synthetic wigs, which makes them less likely to slip out of place during day-to-day activities like sleeping or exercising. There are many different kinds of teasers out there and each one has its own benefits and drawbacks. The best one for you depends on what kind of look you are going for. If you want a messy hair look, then it is best to go with an old-fashioned curling iron or even a flat iron; however, if you want something more modern then go with something like roller sets or curling wands instead.

Pick a style with a High Ponytail

If you have long hair, then you probably already know how to work with it. If not, then you will want to practice before wearing a high ponytail with your headband wig. You need to find the right spot on your head where the wig will sit comfortably and not move around too much throughout the day. This could take some time to get used to, but once you’ve found it, it will be easier for future uses as well!

Use makeup to hide the band

Put concealer or foundation on top of your forehead, underneath where you would normally wear a headband. Make sure it goes all the way around so it blends in with your skin tone. You can also use powder or blush if you need more coverage than what just concealer can give you …. You can find these products in any drugstore or department store. Just apply a small amount along the edge of the headband so that it blends in with your skin tone. It’s important that you do not use too much product so that it looks unnatural on your face!


The band, when exposed, looks rather cheap…and unless you are under a “black light” it is easy to spot. There’s however no specific way to hide the headband. But, now that you know how to do the headband, now it’s up on you to try it out! As you practice with these methods, you are sure to get better and better at creating tailor made wigs. Just keep in mind to try new things and keep learning!
