What are u part wigs? So, before we get started, it’s best that we tackle the most important thing: what are u-part wigs? U-part wigs are Human hair wigs that are made in a U-shaped structure. The tracks of the weave are sewn into a wig cap with an opening. The opening of the wig is left for your natural hair to pass through.

How to wear a u-part wig?

Wearing a U part wig is now easier than ever. There are a few steps you’ll need to take to ensure a seamless installation.

First, you need to place the u-part wig on your head and part your natural hair where the opening will be. For example, if your part is in the middle, make sure to part a good amount of hair so that when the wig is installed it can cover the edges/tracks of the U-part.

Then when you have your natural hair parted, try braiding or clipping it to make the process easier when installing the wig. Now that the part you want is secure, you can proceed to lay the rest of your hair as flat as possible. The easiest method is to braid your hair in braids in a horizontal direction. If you try to braid the braids back, it can make the hair closest to the U-part look bulky and unnatural. If you are someone with shorter hair, you can easily re-gel your locks in a sleek low style and then secure them with bobby pins.

Finally, now is the time to secure the u-part wig to the braids. Fortunately, most u-part units come with clips and combs that you can easily slide into your hair. Adjustable straps can be tightened or loosened for a more comfortable style. If you are someone looking for more security, I would simply sew the tracks on the edge of the u-part to the braids around your head until you are down to just your natural hair. Once the wig is properly secured, you can now remove the pin and position it to cover any part of the wig. It is helpful to use a flat iron to blend your natural hair into the wig.
