What Are the Benefits of a U Part Wig?
When we are consulting with new clients, we suggest what we think will provide the best solution to their hair loss or thinning issues. Many times a full wig isn’t necessary, and one can use a U part wig to add the desired fullness and length.
A “U Part” wig is a wig with a U-shaped piece cut out in the front that allows you to pull some of your hair through to blend-in with the additional hair and provide a far more natural looking hairline. The part of your hair that you pull through is called the “leave-out”. The U Part wig is secured with clips and combs.
The benefit of the U Part is how natural it can look. If done right, it can be seamless. Another advantage is that you can do a lot with a wig like this. The actual U cut out can be a variety of sizes, and it’s usually in the center, but can also be on the side if you want to wear a side part. The wig can also sit further back, and you can have up to about an inch of your entire front hairline as the leave out along with the portion of leave out in the U. Some people will even leave out the whole circumference of their hairline so they can put their hair in a ponytail.
The key to making the U part wig work for you is the blend. The additional hair blend itself needs to be a perfect match to your hair color and texture, or else it defeats the purpose.
You can also have the U Part wig sewn in so you can keep it on for an extended period of time. But in that case, you have to be careful because depending on how you are styling you can easily damage the leave-out portion and have texture/breakage issues over time.
