Instructions for putting on a wig

  1. If putting a quiff/bump in the front of the hair, always use a “Bumpit” for a softer, more even effect.  Leave the desired amount of hair down at the front.  Then insert the “Bumpit” and comb the hair over the top of it, covering it completely and securing the hair in place with a large clip.
  2. Put the child’s hair in two pony tails.  One at the very top of the head, the other at the nap of her neck.
  3. Twist the top pony tail into a bun and secure with large clips.
  4. Put a donut over the bun to add the required extra height to the wig
  5. Put the wig on from the top.  Get the child to hold her head back.  Secure the comb into the top bun.
  6. Get the child to look down and stretch the wig under the bottom pony tail and secure the comb.
  7. Push all access hair up under the wig.  This can be clipped or plaited if it is easier.
  8. When clipping the wig on start at the ears. Use the long, strong clips in the correct colour for the best result. There is a little thumb grasp in the wig cap. Pull this forward to the ear and clip.  Do the same at the other side.  Then add clips where needed to secure the wig.  Be careful to clip into the cap only, do not catch the curls as this will make the wig frizz.
  9. Do not under any circumstances put clips through the main body of the wig.  This is not needed.
  10. When securing the hair band/ tiara, push it firmly back against the wig. Use whatever your hair accessory is to frame and shape the wig.  Cover the sides of the band/tiara with the wig.

For choice of colours, please refer to the chart below.

Shoe Guide

When choosing Irish Dancing Shoes or pumps there are a few things to consider:

  • Think of the experience of the dancer
  • Think of Budget
  • Think of the level that the dancer dances at, i.e beginner
  • Think if the dancer is very competitive or dancing recreationally

Generally speaking Irish Dancing Pumps will be worn a size smaller than the dancer’s street shoe. This is to ensure that the dancer gets a good arch and point in their feet when dancing. However, if the dancer is a raw beginner or dancing recreationally and not competitively, then the pump can be fitted bigger to give comfort and provide growing room. For the competitive dancer, the pump must be fitted like a glove and the dancer is required to stretch it out over time so it will not fit comfortably to begin with.

Please see the individual Irish Dancing pumps we have in our online shop for a more detailed description of the products. The individual descriptions will determine which type/brand of pump will suit your dancer’s needs the best.

Irish Dancing Heavy Shoes are generally worn the same size as the dancer’s street shoe size.

The brands are differentiated by the type of tips and heels on the shoes. Please see the individual products for a more detailed description of each shoe. This will determine the best shoe to meet your dancer’s requirements. Please note Fays Heavy Shoes are one of the narrowest and neat fitting shoes available for dancers of all levels. They prove to be very popular with Championship level dancers.

If you are in doubt about which product would suit best, please consult with your Irish Dancing teacher or contact one of our experienced, helpful staff for some advice.
