Scissors are divided into flat scissors and tooth scissors.
Flat scissors, with smooth and sharp blades, are the most common and basic type.
Dental scissors, also known as thinning scissors, are used to thin the hair.

2) Comb
Combs are divided into steel combs, ordinary combs, straight-roll dual-purpose combs, pointed-tail combs, and so on. As for preventing static electricity, it is not only a steel comb that can do it.

Many cosers commonly used combs are these three types, air-cushion comb, straight-roll comb, and pointed-tail comb.

Recommended type:
air-cushion comb, can be used to comb wigs, real hair, cat hair


The first two are used to smooth the hair, and the pointed-tail comb is used to divide the wig during trimming, apply hair wax during styling, and apply glue to patch wigs, etc. It is very practical.

3) Hair clips, duckbill clips, alligator clips
Wig partition, or used to assist in styling when styling.
Generally speaking, when you buy a scissors set, the store will send it.
If you have special needs and feel that it is not enough, you can buy more yourself.

4) Hair straightener or curling iron

Both of these can be purchased on online e-commerce platforms or offline physical stores, and you can choose the inexpensive ones.
Generally speaking, a hair straightener is enough, and a curling iron is purely a personal pursuit.

5) Head mold and bracket
This tool is needed because the wig needs to be fixed when the wig is being repaired.
The head mold that can be used is a PVC head mold, which can be inserted into a pin to fix the wig.
The bracket is an ordinary head mold tripod bracket.

6) Stereotyped products
Personally, I don’t recommend buying the kind of hair mud that is fake. It’s easy to become white and clumpy, and it’s sticky. After pinching it, it’s no problem. The next time you take it out, it will be extremely disgusting. You can buy gels and waxes in supermarkets.
