The u part wig is an underrated style that you don’t hear much about in the hair care community. But just because you don’t hear about it, doesn’t mean people aren’t loving these wigs. Before lace fronts, and sew-ins became so popular that number one ladies would try a U part wig. So, we’ve decided to highlight these amazing wigs, and encourage some of you to try them out. So, let’s jump straight into everything you need to know about U part wigs in this blog post.
What are u part wigs? So, before we get into the best of it, let’s tackle the most important thing, and that is what are U part wigs? U part wigs are wigs that are made in a U-shaped structure. Weave tracks are sewn onto an open wig cap. The opening of the wig is left to allow your natural hair to pass through. What makes these wigs even better is that you get to be really versatile with your hairstyle. You can create a part on either side of your head or straight down the middle if you prefer. One of the benefits that women love about U part wigs is that they leave people thinking that the unit is your natural hair. Being able to easily blend your own tresses into the wig helps with a flawless finished hairstyle. U part wigs can be made in multiple sizes and are easily adjustable to fit your head shape.
How do you wear a u part wig?
Wearing a u part wig is now easier than ever. There are a few steps that will need to be followed to ensure that the installation is perfect.
First, you should put a U part wig on your head, and separate your natural hair where you want to part it. For example, if your part is down the middle make sure you part a good amount of hair so that it can cover the edges/tracks of the U part when the wig is applied.
Then, when you have natural hair, you’re out of the way, try braiding or trimming it to make the wig application process easier. Now that the part you want is secured you can proceed with flattening the rest of your hair as much as possible. The easiest way is to braid your hair horizontally in cornrows. If you try to tie cornrows straight back, the hair that is closer to the U-section can appear heavy and unnatural. If you have short hair, you can easily gel your ends into a sleek low style and then secure with bobby pins.
Finally, it’s time to secure your U part wig into your braids. Thankfully, most u part units come with clips and combs that you can easily slip into your hair.
The adjustable straps can be tightened or loosened for a more comfortable fit. If you are someone who is looking for more security, you will simply sew the tracks on the edge of the U Part to the cornrows around your head until your natural hair is left.
Once the wig is properly secured you can now unpin your left, and place it down to cover any part of the wig. It helps to use a flat iron to blend your natural hair into the wig.
