Practice putting the wig on first, Turn it inside out and put your hand inside the wig, so it is lying on the palm of your hand. (Your fingers are on the inside where the hair is and the cap of the wig is now facing out).
Place it at the base of the neck with your wrist there against the base of the neck. Flip it up over the head, spreading your fingers out while they are under the right side of the wig. Do that a few times before putting glue on the head.
Once you feel good about that, you just put a little tacky glue on the top of the head, where it will be fastened and spread it around thinly with your fingers. I use the White Tacky Glue. It is non toxic. If the wig is ever ruined in the future, for any reason, it can be removed and replaced. You can purchase the glue at any craft store, fabric store or Walmart, in the craft dept. It is Non Toxic and washable White Tacky Glue. It works great. Make sure you do not put too much glue on, so it doesn't seep through. And don't make the circle of glue too large or the hair will get in it. Just do a circle smaller than the cap of the wig.
Put the wig on your hand as practiced before and hold the hair back, flip it up and over and press it into place. Position it. Put rubberbands over the head to hold the wig down into place. This will make the bond to the head tight.
Wait a few hours, then peal the wig back around the edges (if there is not glue there) and put a bead of Elmer's glue there. It is a thinner glue and you are able to make a thin line and press the edge down again.
I always put a few rubberbands on it again to make the bond tight.
Trim if necessary, but remember it will not grow back if trimmed to short.
Gluing Partial Cap Wigs
It is my pleasure to help you here.
Here are my notes that I made for people when they ask this question.
Just put a little White Tacky Glue on the top of the head where it will be fastened. Spread it out with your finger thinly and press the wig down.
Make sure you do not put too much glue on, so it doesn't seep through. And don't make the circle of glue too large or the hair will get in it. Just do a oval a little smaller then the cap of the wig.
Hold the hair back and press it into place. I put rubberbands over the wig on the head to hold the wig down into place.
Wait a few hours, then peal the wig back around the edges and put glue there, if there isn't any there. Then apply the rubberbands once again, to hold it down for a few hours while it dries.
Shorter hair goes in the front, longer hair is the back.
When completely dry, hold back hair and using your finger, but a very thin layer of glue around the rest of head, brush hair down into it, this will let the bottom layer of hair fasten to the head, it will help hide the rest of the head. Use just a very thin layer of glue. __________________________________________________________________

Thanks for the great instructions
I purchased a wig from Dolls by Sandie for my silicone reborn and was very, very happy not only with the wig itself, but with the speedy delivery. I also purchased a pair of shoes for my reborn, simply charming. I will be back.
