The Elastic Band On Wig

An elastic band is a critical part of a wig because it is designed to allow your wig cap to sit snugly over your head but also ensure it remains in place regardless of whatever situation you come across. You definitely do not want your wig flying off your head at the slightest nudge.

There are several articles online that explicitly teach you how to sew an elastic band to your wig, but no information about what the difference between the many types of elastic bands used on wigs are. In this article, we will introduce the pros and cons of different types of elastic bands.
