Storage Unit Tips: Storing Your Wigs

Storage Unit with Wigs in It

High-quality wigs are expensive and need to be stored carefully for longevity. Whether you use them for everyday use, costuming, or maybe you own a wig shop, you want to store them properly. Sometimes you may run out of room to store them at your home or store. When that happens, a storage unit could be the perfect solution. Today in the Affordable Family Storage blog, we’ll give you some tips for keeping your wigs in a storage unit.

First Steps

If you’re planning on putting your wigs away in a storage unit for a long period of time, you should make sure to wash and clean them first. This way when you take them out of your storage unit, it will be as clean as possible. Just make sure you get all of the product out of it, because you could damage it by keeping it in storage for too long.

You should also purchase some wig containers or mannequins to keep them on. Proper wig containers and mannequins will help the wigs to keep their shape over time. This way they won’t lose their original styling while they’re in storage.

What Storage Unit Should I Get?

Ideally, you need to get a storage unit that is climate-controlled. If you have an expensive wig, it will be affected by the temperature and elements. You want to keep it in an environment that is dry and moderate in temperature. Also, wigs need to be stored in a place where they’re not exposed to direct sunlight. Luckily, all of the storage units at Affordable Family Storage don’t let any sunlight in, so you won’t have to worry about this. As far as the size of the storage unit goes, that depends on how big your wig collection is. Chances are, the smallest storage space we offer should be enough for a small wig collection, but if you have many wigs all on mannequins, you may need more space.
