Wig Storage Ideas that are creative and easy to do!
When you first start wearing hair, you might have just one wig, and you might have it on your head during the day….but at some point, you’ll need to take it off. How do you store a wig – and more than one wig? Or how do you safely store long-hair wigs and toppers?
You can store your wig on your styling head, of course, and this works if you have one wig. You could also set up your travel / drying stand and air out your wig that way too, storing them on a dresser or counter. You could store two wigs that way, but you may find they are in the way.
If you are managing several wigs (2-3 wigs, plus caps and hats) you need a better system. This one utilizes the open space at the top of a bathroom or linen closet and uses a commonly found inexpensive tension bar, and hanging wig hangers to manage a selection of fun hair wearing options.
In this case, the client worked with a personal organizer who helped her clean out her bathroom closet and create a great wig storage space that is beautiful and functional. This space was previously large bottles of lotion (moved to a lower shelf) that created this open space for wig storage that is out of the way and protected.
The top shelf of this cabinet had a lot of room above it (you could also remove a shelf from a linen closet or bathroom cabinet such as this, or remove a shelf from a row of shelves in a standard closet too.)
· Purchase a tension bar that will span the width of your space
· Purchase these wig hangers (2-pack) on Amazon
· Hang your wigs
· Use the shelf for storing the styling head, travel wig stand/ air drying stand, wig caps and hats
You can also use pant and skirt style hangers to clip toppers and attachable hair and hang.
Having a dedicated space for your hair protects the hair when you’re not wearing it, and creates a ‘boutique’ experience of deciding which hair to wear on any given day. Wearing hair as an accessory is a way many women embrace hair wearing, even though their choice to wear hair in the first place wasn’t their own.
Wearing wigs and toppers likely means that you may acquire ‘seasonal hair’ like accessories, meaning if you’re not looking for better storage options now, you will be soon!
