Travel and Storage
The most important thing when traveling with a wig or beard is to make sure the pieces are secure and can’t move around or be crushed, whether they are on a head or not.
If you have the option to block your pieces onto a foam or canvas head, that’s usually ideal but you’ll still want to secure the head in a sturdy cardboard box or even a wig carrier (check ebay!). You can do this by attaching a dowel rod to the interior of the box or case, or by stuffing newspaper around the base of the head. I suggest covering the top of the wig with a sheet of tissue paper to lessen potential flyaways or frizz.
If you don’t travel with it on a head, lay it down on a piece of tissue paper. Wad another piece of tissue paper up and lay it in the wig, then wrap the whole thing gently in the tissue paper it is laying on. Tape the paper closed but don’t compress the wig. If need be, add another piece of tissue paper to make sure the whole wig is covered. The best way to carry your tissue wrapped wig is in a wide paper bag with handles. If you need to put it in a suitcase, put it near the top of the case, and try to section off the part of the suitcase with pieces of cardboard. Alternatively, if your suitcase is large enough, pack the tissue wrapped wig in a cardboard box.
