After reflecting on it and even surfing on YouTube for suggestions (which were actually more complex than what I wanted), I suddenly had a brain flash: use two-sided tape; to be more specific turn a piece of tape in on itself in order to expose two adhesive faces.
I placed the wig on my head and then proceeded to put three pieces strategically just where the forehead meets the natural hairline. This turned out to be a great idea because the wig stayed in place without so much of a hint of movement over the 2 hour period that I wore it. The tape I used was surgical adhesive tape you find at any drugstore but I suspect a number of other types would do the trick as well.
If you have had this issue as well, I highly recommend this solution as it is cheap and quick.
