{WIG STYLING} How to curl a wig - Uniqso

Hi everyone! I'm back with a new wig tutorial~ it's still something simple, but it may be useful for you! I'm talking about how to curl a wig! There are different methods depending on the quality of your base product,  I'll try to show you some of the most common!
First  of all, here's my beautiful wig (click to see the product on uniqso.com). I got it from Uniqso, which is a popular circle lenses and wig store! You may have heard something about them, because I wrote another tutorial HERE.

Before the tutorial, I'd like to write something about the wig (like a super short review!). The quality is amazing, my wig is soft and there's no sign of the hated "plastic shine" (⑉・̆⌓・̆⑉). The color too looks pretty similar to the stock image, the variation caused by the monitor setting was in fact minimum. I also had no problem styling this wig, the curls are perfect and resistent, even without the hair spray! My opinion about this product is fully positive, Uniqso confirms again its high quality standard Definitely recommended!

Here's the wig with its natural perm.
METHOD 1: Iron curler
Difficulty: ⭐
Time: ⭐⭐ (also depending on the length of your wig)
Wig quality required: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The easiest tool you can use to curl your wig is surely the iron curler (same method used for human hair) but with some precautions: we have to set a low temperature, to avoid the fusion of the plastic fibers, and we need a shorter posing time. You also need a high quality wig (kanekalon for instance) because otherwise, your product will melt... Ruining the curler too!
If you're not sure about the quality of your wig, you can try to curl a small amount of fibers. Choose a hidden lock, like near the nape.

 METHOD 2: Hot water
Difficulty: ⭐⭐
Time: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Wig quality required: ⭐⭐⭐

This method can be used for almost every kind of wig and won't ruin your product! The only problem you can face is that the wig won't keep the set. It can happen for two reasons: the quality is too poor or the water temperature wasn't high enough. Don't worry, you can generally fix these problems with some tips, but let's start from the beginning!

Prepare your wig: brush it and get some rollers and hairpins.
Put on your curlers: divide the wig in tiny locks of hair and secure them with the hairpins.
Tip: you can connect two rollers with one hairpin to keep them fixed!
Boil some water in a big pot: When the water starts making bubbles, it's time to immerse your wig!
Why did I choose to immerse and boil my wig, instead of pouring the water, as I did in my "how to straighten a wig" article?
The answer is simple: pouring the water can undo the work you've done, since the water will push your curlers towards the ground!
Leave your wig in the pot for at least 10 minutes.
Let it dry: if you have a polystirene head, put your wet wig on it and let it dry naturally

If you want your curls to be more resistent, you need to use some hair spray (after the wig is completely dry and before you take off the curlers). Be carefull to not exceed, since too much hair spray will make your wig look dirty!
How much time did my wig take to be completely styled?
It took almost 5 hours, around 30 minutes to put on the curlers and boil the water and the rest for the drying process. Since it's summer the wig dried really fast!

It's time to show you the results! I'm sorry for the bad quality of these pics (the colors are too desaturated), but I really don't know what went wrong with the uploader... I swear that my skin isn't greyish at all ahah

...Well, I hope you found this tutorial useful and easy to understand ❤ I'd like to see your results in case you used this article as a reference! Feel free to send me your photos here in the comments or on Facebook! σ(≧ε≦o)
