Wig Styling Tools Online

Posted by Ask Chavi at 2:21 PM
Chavi,
Where can I get styling blocks and clamps online?
E

Dear E,
Here are some various options at different price points.
Canvas Wig Heads:

 Canvas Wig Head * 21-1/2" Head





Styling blocks or canvas heads are helpful because you can pin your wig securely to them.  Thy come in various sizes so you can buy one that is the proper size for your wig.  They resemble a head so that the style will look the same when you are wearing your wig after the styling is done.  Clamp head bases come in two varieties: a clamp that adjusts to fit on a table or counter and suction cup.  The suction cup model has a chance of coming loose, but will hold if installed properly.  It is important to have a tight fit so you can get the proper tension with the wig while blow drying.  T-Pins are used to secure the wigs onto the heads and they can also be used to place side bangs over when storing your wig so they are "trained" to be out of the face.  Please watch my video series on washing and setting a wig to see how to properly pin a wig to a head and utilize a styling block and clamp.

@Shifra you can see by the Amazon review that it is a cheaper quality than some available on the market but functional. It is probably fine for your purposes.
