Nowadays, thanks to the technical evolution of the wigs market, it has become the favorite of celebrities and women looking for something fast and practical. This so-called «undetectable» wig is built lace based and gives the real impression that the tresses look like they come out of the scalp of the person wearing it.
However, the more real the hairstyle is, the more expensive it is. Do we necessarily have to pay a high price to have a perfect and undetectable wig? Absolutely not! Small tips exist to hide the fake hair, how to make a wig look real.
We have listed for you the 5 tips to give your wig a «true and natural» rendering.
Buy one with lace on the edge
Lace, also called «lace», is the essential element to give your wig the desired natural effect. Almost transparent in color, it has hair that is carefully placed on top. This lace is defined as the base of the Lace Wig. With this base, you will be able to define how you will wear your wig, how you will place it on your head and so on.
Of course, to be able to enjoy your new hairstyle, it is mandatory to reduce the lace to the maximum.
How to do it:
To remove it, take a pair of scissors and cut the lace following the wig’s head circumference. Because it is important to keep this base, leave a small margin of about 1 to 2 millimeters. Indeed, the lace should not disappear completely because it will give the illusion that the hair comes out directly from your head.
Take your time when you go through this step: it is better to cut slowly than starting over fifteen times to cut quickly and damage the wig. When the lace is cut, you will be able to wear it.
Make up the rest of lace
How to make a lace front wig look real?
The lace is cut, your wig is on your head, perfect! In order to optimize the wig’s rendering, it is important to make up the rest of the lace with a foundation of a color identical to that of your face.
A Lace Wig does not go too far back and must be positioned on the forehead, 1 centimeter from the scalp.
To fade the pre-cut line, erase all traces by adding your foundation over it.
How to do it:
After makeup, reapply a small amount of foundation to emphasizing the demarcation line. The lace will then blend carefully on your skin and then, neither seen nor known: there will be no distinction between your forehead and the «scalp» of the wig.
Create ‘baby hair’ to make a wig look real
«Baby-hair» is a vocabulary that we often hear coming out of the mouths of our favorite Youtubers. These baby hair are simply the small wavy hair that adorns our face. Very pretty, baby hair has become today’s hair detail that not to be missed.
Removing your baby hair at the front of your wig will ensure the natural effect of your hairstyle. The rendering is breathtaking!
Simple and fast, simply put a small amount of hair all-around your scalp.
How to do :
Arm yourself with a comb and draw a thin line all around your wig. If the hair in the front is very long, it is possible to cut them carefully, be careful: cut them in a gradient, not in a straight cut.
It is not usually necessary to apply the gel on these hairs because they will model themselves on your skin. Look at you, could we really say that these baby hair are not yours?
Enlarge the line to improve the look of your wig
It is very possible that your Lace Wig has one or more lines, depending on the previous application. When the line is already defined, it often needs a little help to appear as natural as possible. To avoid any doubt, the trick is to solve the separation yourself by removing hair around the line.
How to do :
Help with a pair of tweezers: remove quickly some hair that would allow adding space to the line. Do it little by little until you are fully satisfied with your gap. For a more realistic effect, it is advisable to also make up the line made with your foundation so that all the colours can be matched.
Comb but never brush
The wig requires the same vigilance as all other types of wigs: for it to be beautiful, taking care of it is essential. It does not stay 24/24 on your head, its beauty is not only in the nature of the hair but also the maintenance of these.
Brushing a wig is not recommended because the brush pulls and damages the hair. The ends are bent quickly and the hair falls considerably. You can also use your brushing or straightener to give them the desired look.
How to do :
The technique is to comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb and to untangle finger-resistant knots. In the evening, take care of them by using coconut oil, previously rubbed in your hands then put the Lace Wig in a flat and clean place. Your wig will shine the next day and will keep that way for a long time.
