Tips on How to Make Your Wig Look Natural
For many wig wearers, making the wigs look natural has proven to be a big challenge. If you are just starting, you probably want your human hair wig to match your natural hair as much as possible. To make it easy for you, the following tips should make your wig wearing experience pleasant.
Get a good quality wig
This is the starting point, regardless of whether you are a seasoned or not. Buy your wig from a reputable hair shop. Even though the wig market is becoming saturated by the day, not all of these shops guarantee quality.
Go for a perfect fit
Finding a wig that fits you like a glove is necessary. If it’s too tight, it will harm your natural hair and scalp, and even cause headaches. On the other hand, if the wig is big, it will look unnatural and make you feel uncomfortable. This is why you should get a wig that fits perfectly.
Pluck your wig
This is one of the easiest ways of making your wig look natural. Your wig does not come pre-plucked, it is most likely going to look thick and unnatural around the hairline. Plucking a few hairs makes it look more natural. To be sure that you are plucking the right amount, place your wig on the mannequin and use your tweezers to pluck. You can also choose to wear the wig so that your actual headline will act as a natural guide.
Cut the lace to fit your face
Most wigs come with extra lace that ensures the unit fits perfectly. Before securing the wig, trim off any excess lace and use your hairline as a guide. Make the first cut at the middle of your forehead then trim it off towards your hairline. Be careful not to interfere with any baby hairs you may want to keep.
Making your wig look natural is not as hard as it may seem. If you get it right, people will actually mistaken your wig for your actual hair!
