A Lesson From The KiKi Sheard Wig Incident – 3 Ways To Secure Your Wig

040113-shows-the-sheards-kierra-kiki-sheard-2On social media Gospel singer Kierra “KiKi” Sheard shared the a video where she literally loses her wig while doing what she does best —Going super hard on stage!

KiKi Sheard was at the One Place Live Tour Atlanta and she was rocking the stage and in mid song she did a little head twirl thing that was a bit too much for her hair.

That wig took flight honey which for anyone would be embarrassing but KiKi was a great sport about it, putting the video on Instagram for all the world to see.

In honor of KiKi being such a good sport about it, we have some tips on how you can keep your wig in place during any sort of strenuous activity:

1. Wig tape

This inst my favorite choice of the bunch but it works if you are super careful. All you have to do it put the tape in the area where the band for the wig cap holds the wig together will rest. Press down on the tape and voila your wig wont go anywhere!

2. Bobby Pins


Lots of women use a ton of bobby pins just to make sure their wig is secure, again this is a matter of preference and if you do not mind the pins then this is also a great option.

3. Sew it

This one is pretty technical but very achievable, and we have a pretty detailed video you can use to see exactly how you can sew your wig down to your head. This is the best way to keep your wig in place, if you do it right your wig isn’t going anywhere.

Check out KiKi’s video here:

Happened to me at a family member’s work Christmas party one year. the person who was supposed to do my hair shadily avoided it (I have curly slippery hair people hate to do). So after working all day and running out of time a wig had to do. I had bobby pins in there but it didn’t work. I was dancing, not particularly hard either, and that puppy flew off. Never have I moved so fast. Fortunately everyone was very drunk by then, and not a soul noticed a thing. I hustled to the bathroom and put it back on. Never wore a wig again until lace fronts became publicly available. I don’t use that glue, but I do use those wig clips you sew in and have to squeeze so the teeth clutch your hair.
