Pre-Plucked 360 Lace Wig- What it is and How to DIY
Wigs are increasingly becoming the modern woman’s hair solution, with the Pre-Plucked 360 lace wig topping the list. There is a good reason why. First, this type of wig offers an incomparably realistic look, with the mesh going all around the hairline. This means all of your hair protected, and there’s no need for a leave-out. Individual hairs are manually sewn, giving the scalp a real look. There are numerous styles that one can rock with a 360 wig, ranging from ponytails, to braids, to different up dos. Their versatility meets even the most demanding customer’s need.
When shopping for a wig, you might notice some of them are indicated as “pre-plucked” and you might be wondering what this means. In simple terms, a pre-plucked wig is one who’s hairline looks natural, with the baby hairs already customized by plucking. Most weaves have a uniform hair density, and if not properly customized, end up looking fake.
Plucking a wig reduces the hair density on the top part, mimicking the exact look of your natural hair. A natural hairline has hairs of unequal length, as hair is constantly growing hence they cannot be uniform in length. A wig that is to imitate your natural hairline should follow this exact pattern. Plucking a 360 wig gives it a flawless hairline and realistic baby hairs. Even though pre-plucked wigs are a bit pricier, their appearance is usually superior to other hairpieces.
If you have a wig that’s not pre-plucked, do not worry. You can do it yourself, or have a professional do it for you. Nobody should wear a fake looking wig because they don’t know how to pluck their pieces. This is why we are going to share an easy customization procedure, so that you can have your wig looking more realistic and natural.
How to customize a Pre-Plucked 360 Lace Wig

On receiving your hairpiece, first, confirm that it snags like a glove. You don’t want to start plucking the hair right away only to realize when wearing it that it is not an exact fit.
Thoroughly wash your wig once you’ve confirmed that it fits perfectly.
Secure the wig on the Styrofoam stand using the pins. Ensure it is firmly pinned down so that it doesn’t give you any trouble.
Study the wig hairline. You will notice how dense the hair along the hairline is. This is what you want to do away with. Carefully start plucking the hairs from one side as you gradually proceed to the other one. Quality tweezers should give you an easy time. It is advisable to pluck a little bit of hair, checking to see if it looks okay then going back in until you get the desired look.
Do not form a straight hairline as it automatically will look fake. Aim for a smooth transition. Try to get a close imitation of your natural hairline as much as you can.
Choose where to have your parting and pluck some hairs as well. Track your progress by trying it one a number of times. This will help you know exactly where to go in a little more.
That’s how you get to create a perfectly realistic 360 lace wig that looks flawless!
