Wigs and buzzed heads, help!

So I have a full undercut, that means that my head is shaved on all sides but the crown/top, I am wondering if anyone has any tips for keeping my wig from falling off since I don't have anything to clip it to for the most part.

Is the wig particularly large or unbalanced? If unbalanced, I'd add counterweight to balance it (it will be much more comfortable that way, too).

I had very short hair at one point and never thought anything of it. I just put the wig on and that was it, never had any problems. In fact, I thought that it was a plus.

Just put it on and see what happens. If you do have problems, then worry about it. You could try a wig cap and clip the wig to that it's a good idea anyway because even short/no hair can get sweat and oils onto the wig.

You could try sewing wig clips (toupee clips) into the front of the wig, as shown in this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KojgSTBUZoQ

They grip hair, even short hair, pretty tightly! If the wig clips still don't want to grip your hair, try putting some hairspray or gel into it so the wig clips can get more of a grip
