Some hairpieces will come with hidden combs for a more secure fit around your hair. These combs should be removed with an exacto knife or seam ripper.

Pull the drawstring to slightly tighten up the base of the hairpiece after removing the combs. helmet hair
If you're using a Picture Hanger type suction cup, pull the hanger hook's eye off the stem of the cup. Then heat the tip of the hook over a candle, and carefully holding it with pliers, push it through the stem of the cup. The hot metal will burn a hole through the stem, then just thread the hook on in until the eye stops it on the other end. You may have to remove and reheat the hook if it doesn't easily burn all the way through the stem on the first attempt)

As an alternative to inserting the hook, you can just force a Jumbo Gem Clip around the stem and let it settle into the recess that used to hold the hanger hook in place. This is a LOT sturdier than you would think, and is my wife's preferred method when she can't find the Wreath Hanger style cups.

If you're lucky enough to find Wreath Hanger Cups, they already have a plastic hook inserted through the stem and are ready to use right out of the package! :-)

Place the Jumbo Clip, inserted metal hook, or plastic hook into the base of the hairpiece and tightly cinch the drawstring around the clip or hook.

Pulling it tight, tie the drawstring into a double or triple knot for security, then cut off the excess drawstring material.

Place your Scrunchie around the base of the hairpiece, filling the area between the hair and the suction cup. helmet hair
