Chunks, Lumps, and Bumps- Avoiding Unsightly Protrusions While Wearing Your Wig

Here's a great step-by-step pictorial for those of you who struggle to avoid that awkward bump at the back of your head while wearing your wig or band-fall.

Step 1.

Section your hair in the middle, from the front all the way to the nape area.

Step 2.

Use elastic bands to create a low side pony on each side.

Step 3.

Take a pony and section it into two parts. Begin braiding each part tightly.
After completing each braid use an elastic band to secure the ends properly.

Step 4.

Repeat Step 3 with the other pony.

At this point you will have four sectioned braids. 

Step 5.

Grab a plait and place it flat against the nape area twisting the rest back on to your nape. Secure it with bobby pins while making certain it is lying against the back of your head as flat and as low as possible.

Step 6.

Repeat Step 5 with each braided section while keeping each plait flat against the lower nape area. Continue to secure and flatten the hair with bobby pins as you go along.

Step 7.

You're now ready to wear your wig!

These simple steps will make a significant difference for those with thick hair like myself. I also use this technique to avoid any odd bumps on the models I work with.
