Any process which uses a method of affixing the wig or hairpiece to the wearer's existing hair for security. Attachment may be temporary or extended wear, depending on the particular type of method or accessory used. Popular attachment methods are combs, clips, beads and loops, thread, or special adhesives. BACKCOMBING: The process of lacing hair together at the base to create fullness to a style. The hair strand is pulled away from the head, and held firmly but lightly while the comb is inserted into the hair and pushes some of the hair backward down the strand toward the root area. Hair is then gently brushed or combed over the backcombing to smooth out the style.
