10 Ways To Learn The Basics Of U-Part Wig Styling

A u-part wig is as convenient as a wig in that it can be quick to install while it also has the more natural look of a sew-in weave because it allows for a substantial amount of leave out at the crown.

The key to getting a u-part wig to look right is to have a good blending technique that will ensure your own hair matches the wig. With great blending between texture and color, no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing a wig at all!
