Wig is required to save your hair from heat and extreme weather conditions and styling appliances. In the film and fashion industry the wigs are widely used, as the hair styles changes with every events.
Few points to keep in mind to make the wig look natural are -
1. Wig Replacement
Replace the wig regularly for hygiene and cleansing of your hair as well. The synthetic wigs should be replaced every 3- 6 months and human hair wig to be every 6-12 months. This hack will not let anyone know you are wearing hair wig.
2. Match your hair color
Unless you naturally have very dark hair, it’s unlikely that your hair is just one color.
Most people have shades of color and gradients throughout their hair. Wigs with rooted colors, on the other hand, mimic the natural gradients in bio hair by blending several colors.
3. Look for Lace Fronts and Monofilament Tops
Keira Knightley wore wigs on set and at red carpet events for years, and no one knew she was wearing them until she spoke publicly about her issues with hair loss.
Lace front wigs create the illusion of a natural hairline, making it look like your wig hair is growing right out of your head. Monofilament tops do the same thing, each hair of a monofilament top wig is individually sewn into the wig, rather than being machine applied.
4. Mess Up The Part
When something looks too perfect, especially with wigs it is usually a sign that that thing is fake. Apparently, wig companies haven’t learned this yet.
With the new wig, take a pair of tweezers and carefully pluck out a few strands. Then, use scissors, cut a few strands so that they look like they’re just growing out. Last, choose a couple of hairs to place on the ‘wrong’ side of the part. Many a times the imperfection looks more perfect.
5. Blend it out
Lace front wigs are great visible at natural hairline. If you have some natural hair, try ‘blending’ your natural hairline with the hairline of a lace front wig.
Steps to blend Natural Hairline with a Lace Front Wig
Step 1: Place your wig an inch or two farther back on your head than you typically would, exposing your natural hairline.
Step 2: Fully attach the wig.
Step 3: Spray a little dry shampoo into your hairline and along the part of the wig, and use your fingers to tease everything together.
TIP: If you have long baby hairs, your wig should probably have them, too. Merge your own edges is the key to achieve a flawless illusion. It keeps people guessing your hair style.
6. Know Your Size
Find the right size wig for your head will make you more comfortable, it will also help your wig look more natural.
To figure out your wig size, take out your tape measure.
Starting at the front of your hairline, wrap the measure behind your ear to the nape of your neck, around to your other ear, then match the measuring tape back to the other end at the front of your hairline. Repeat the step to be sure with the size.
7. Line Up Your Wig With Your Natural Hairline
If you don’t line up your wig with your natural hairline, your wig will never look natural. That’s why it’s super important that each time you put on your wig, you take the time to line it up properly.
To correctly line up your wig with your natural hairline, first put your wig on your forehead just above your eyebrows.
Next, slowly slide the wig back over your head, adjusting as you go, until the bottom of the wig hits the nape of your next.
Last, slide the wig forward just a bit until it hits your natural hairline, secure the straps, and style away!
