Below are steps to take to make your wig hairline look real:
- Select a style
Buying a wig is a significant investment, so before you do, ask a couple of questions. What style do you want? Do you want to leave some of your natural hair? Will you take it off at night before sleeping?
These questions will help you decide the type of wig that you want to purchase.
- Take your measurements
Measure your head with a measuring tape to make sure that the wig cap you get will fit perfectly.
- Bleach the knots
If you decide to purchase a lace wig with human hair, it is essential to flip the wig inside out and then bleach the knots on the hairpiece.
- Pluck the hairs
You need to pluck some of the hairs on the wig’s hairline, especially for those that do not look natural at all. The best way to do this is by tweezing.
- Select your braid pattern
When you are done customizing the hairline of the wig, you should select the best braid pattern for your hair. Ensure that the parting of the braids is in the right direction. Twist the hair in the direction of the wig part, so when you put on the wig, you do not see braids, but skin.
- Cut the lace after wearing the wig
There is usually a large piece of lace at the hairline of lace front wigs. Put the wig on your head, and then cut it off to fit the frame of your face.
- Get a custom cut
Since cutting the wig is the most essential step, you can get professional help from stylists to suit your natural hair.
- Apply the wig
Now you have the right cut, you should apply the wig. For the wig to stay on for a couple of days, you should use a light adhesive to hold it in place. You can also use bobby pins to kip it secure.
- Use dry shampoo
It is time to style the hair, now that the wig is secure on your head. Spraying with dry shampoo is one of the coolest ways to keep the wig looking natural. This is because some wigs, especially synthetic ones tend to look unnaturally shiny and dry shampoo can remove some of the shine to make the strands look more real.
- Blend the wig
The final step is to blend the wig’s hairline with your own to make it look more realistic. You do this using the lace grid and knot concealer from Perfect Line Swiss. Warm up the tube in hot water for 3 minutes, turn your wig inside out and then glide the concealer onto your lace part. Turn your wig over, select your parting then use the flat part of your comb to smooth out the product. Finally drop a drop of your favorite hair oil onto the parting to make it come alive like a natural scalp.
And you’re done! As you can see the process is not very complicated, something that you can easily do from the comfort of your home.
