How to Wear a Drag Queen Wig


It’s fun to wear a drag queen wig for special occasions or a night on the town. To look your best, you need to know how to choose and wear a drag queen wig. Follow these steps to get the right look and turn a few heads.

Know that there are different types of wigs. Some have caps and some are capless to allow for air circulation. Expensive wigs have artificial scalps where the hair comes out vertically like natural hair. Wigs can be made from natural or synthetic hair.

Figure out your wig size by measuring your head. There are three measurements to take. Measure from ear to ear over the top of your head, from the front of your hairline to the nape of your neck, and all around your head at the hairline. Most wigs are sized for women so men may need a large or extra large size.

Choose a style suited to your face shape. Round faces look good with styles that are wispy on the sides to narrow the face. Square faces look good with curls or waves to soften the jawline. Oval faces can wear any style.

Select a wig color close to your own haircolor for a natural look. If you like a more dramatic look, choose a bold or wild color, such as blue or red. Synthetic wigs often come in bold colors and some have metallic strands. Natural hair wigs are more versatile for styling.

Put your wig on starting at the front of your head. Make sure it just covers your hairline. Pull down the sides and then the back.

Place a few bobby pins around the perimeter of the wig to hold it in place. Adjust the hair to suit your style. You can have your drag queen wig colored by a professional wig stylist to suit your needs.

Tips & Warnings

  • Store your wig on a wig stand to retain its shape.
  • Wash your wig once a week if you wear it every day.
  • Match your eyebrow color to your wig color for a natural look.
  • Keep your wig away from heat.
