If you’re a get-up-and-go kind of gal, the convenience of hair wraps and buns will fit right into your lifestyle. We like to think of these hair pieces as perfect for people full of moxie, who have a lot to get done but want an extra dose of elegance as they go about their duties. Whether you’re hoping to up the ante on a special occasion (these hair pieces are great for prom, parties, and weddings!) or just want to elevate what you wear to the office every day, a hair wrap from Headcovers is the perfect marriage of function and fashion.
How to Match Your Natural Hair Color
Most people shopping for hair pieces want to buy a product that will blend right in with their natural locks. If you’re stressed about buying online, we’ve got options to help ensure you’re happy with the match you make.
Consider sending a swatch of hair with your order so that our expert cosmetologist can choose the right shade for you. Just select “sending hair swatch” from the color drop-down box on the product page when you place the order. Then, send a swatch our way and let us take care of the rest.
If you don’t want to send a swatch (or you’re running short on time), you can also supply us with a photo of yourself. After you make your purchase, we’ll review the image and be in touch with our recommendations.
While those are our favorite ways to color match a hair piece, check out our Selecting a Hair Color page for more ways to secure the perfect shade.
Why We Love Synthetic Hair Wraps
Synthetic hair pieces have the appearance of natural hair, at the maintenance level of your favorite sweater. Depend on them for perfect style every time; wash ‘em, but only after four to six wears. Because they’re composed of man-made materials, synthetic hair pieces won’t flatten in humidity or frizz with static. Even when ruffled, they return to the originally intended style. Just be careful to only use wig-friendly products on your synthetic wrap or bun - our shampoo and conditioner will do the trick, as will a wide-tooth comb.
How to Attach Your Hair Wraps
One of the great things about hair wraps and buns is that they look much more complicated (and fancy!) than they are to attach. In fact, some of our favorite styles attach as easily as hair scrunchies. For example, the Highlight Wrap goes on via an elastic band. To secure, all you have to do is wind the band around a bun or updo, and boom! Romantic, undone glamour. The Feather Wrap, too, is a one-and-done scenario. Just wrap it around your bun and go - a process that takes less than 20 seconds! For ponytail wraps, we’ve got a couple of options. Either attach with a three tooth comb and Velcro, as with Revlon’s Wrap-N-Wear Ponytail, or fasten with a handy elastic band, as with the Estetica 18 Inch Ponywrap.
How Long Will My Hair Wraps Last?
The lifespan of your hair piece will depend on how often you wear it and how well you take care of it. If you wear it every single day and wash it when you’re supposed to, your hair wrap or bun should last for 4-6 months. However, if you’re only wearing it one or two times a week, it’ll last for much longer. Just remember to keep it in a cool, dry place when not in use - preferably in a box with a lid to avoid dust or anything that might cause it to tangle. See our Synthetic Wig Care guide for more info.
