Wig clips are clips that are placed on the underside of a wig to hold it securely to a person's head. They come in many colors that can correspond to a wig's color, and can also be permanently sewn-in. Pieces of rubber can be included on the clips to make them more comfortable for the user to wear. Glues can also be used in order to attach the clips to the wigs. In addition, they can also be used with other hair pieces.

For most users, it is advantageous to have the wig clips sewn into their wigs. The sewing process may take a little of the wig user's time, but it affords the user the security of having the clips put permanently into place. Sewing also means that there will be less chance of the wig clips slipping and dislodging during use of the wig.

There is no limit to the amount of clips that can be sewn onto a wig. Some individuals might find that they can manage their wig using only a couple of clips. Others might find that they require several to successfully keep their wigs in place. Fortunately, wig clips are inexpensive and the number of clips that a person sews onto the wig doesn't have to be dictated by cost.


Clips for wigs can be available in a wide range of colors. Rather than arbitrarily choosing, wig owners should select one that can best blend in with their wigs' hair colors. While it may be simple to match black clips with black wigs, other colors may be more difficult to match. It may be a good idea to bring along the wig when purchasing the clips in order to best match the color. Other color of clips can be used with the wigs, but they run the risk of being detected by others who are looking closely at the wig.

Pieces of rubber often accompany wig clips and are attached directly to them. These are created to provide a cushioning between the hardness of the clip and the softness of the scalp. The rubber can be located both on the base and lip of the clips.

The best wig clips tend to be those that are glue-free. Clips that contain glue can break apart easily, or can include chemicals in the glue that can be disruptive to the wig's integrity. To spare unnecessary deterioration, wig users should use clips without glues or other substances that might damage their wigs.
