How to Do Sock Curls?

Wigs have become an incredibly versatile and popular accessory for changing up our looks. From various hair colors to different lengths and styles, wigs offer endless possibilities. If you're looking to achieve beautiful curls without using heat or damaging styling tools, the sock curls method might be your new favorite technique. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the steps to create gorgeous curls using the sock curls method for wigs.

Materials You'll Need:
A UHAIR lace front wigs (human hair)
Socks (clean and preferably long)
Water spray bottle
Hairpins or bobby pins
Wide-tooth comb
Styling product (curl-enhancing mousse, if desired)

Step-by-Step Guide:
Step 1: Prepare Your UHAIR Wig
Start by placing your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head. Ensure it is free of tangles and well-combed using a wide-tooth comb. If you want to enhance the hold of the curls, you can apply a small amount of curl-enhancing mousse to the wig, focusing on the ends.

Step 2: Dampen the Wig
Using a water spray bottle, lightly dampen the hair of the wig. Be careful not to soak it; you just want the hair to be slightly damp, not dripping wet. This will help the curls set better.

Step 3: Prepare the Socks
Gather 6-8 dress socks. The longer and thinner they are, the better. The amount of socks you need will depend on how thick your wig is. If you have a very thick wig, you might need 10-12 socks.

Step 4: Section the Hair
Divide the real human hair wig into sections, starting with the bottom layers. Secure the upper layers with hairpins or bobby pins to keep them out of the way while you work on the lower layers.

Step 5: Roll the Hair
Grab a section with your non-dominant hand and hold it at the end. Place a tube sock across your hair so that it is perpendicular. The sock should be placed halfway between the roots and ends of your hair.

Step 6: Secure the Curl
You should leave about one or two inches at the end loose. Once you reach the roots of your hair, tie the ends of the sock securely together.

Step 7: Repeat and Wait
Continue rolling and securing curls with the remaining sections of hair. Once all sections are curled and secured, allow the wig to air dry completely. This can take a few hours, so be patient. You can speed up the drying process by using a fan or sitting in a well-ventilated area.

Step 8: Unroll the Curls
After the wig is completely dry, gently unroll the curls from the socks. Use your fingers to separate and fluff the curls for a natural and voluminous look.

Step 9: Style and Set
Feel free to style the curls as desired. You can gently finger comb through the curls to create a more relaxed look or leave them untouched for a defined curl pattern. If you want to add extra hold and shine, you can apply a lightweight hairspray.
