 How To Make Your Wig Look Natural

The most important wig tips are not about what brand to buy or what style to wear.  You will get the best and most natural results when you focus on how you are wearing your wig and what features you don't skimp on! See all you need to know (below) to take it up a notch and make your wig look flawless:

 

 Wig Tips and Tricks

Tip #1. Rooted Colors

Rooted colors give your wig dimension and a very natural look as it gives the illusion of the hair growth from your scalp. Rooted colors are also a product of a high-end salon visit. This also helps give the illusion of natural hair. However, if you just can't get used to the idea of the rooted look or If you cant find a rooted color for your wig, make sure you pick a color that has a blend of two or more colors to give you dimension. Highlighted color has relatively the same affect as rooted. Solid colors and wigs have a tendency to look less natural. 

 

Tip #2 Lace Front and Monofilament Top are Key!

Having good quality human hair or synthetic hair and the right color is important but the right wig cap is key. You don’t necessarily need to buy the most expensive wig to achieve a natural look. 

 

Lace front wigs have a feature which gives you a virtually natural hairline which is seamless and looks like the hairs along the hairline are growing right out of your head. 

 

Monofilament tops feature the same benefit of lace front in that they also give the illusion of hair growing out of your scalp where the hair is parted.  Because each hair is sewn in just like natural hair grows...It's a much more natural look.

 

TIP #3 Product and Heat From Your Hands

These simple tools can improve the look of any wig.  Product is important to condition the hair (make sure to keep the conditioner mostly at the ends). Also... our favorite trick for tempering the glossy look some wigs may have is to use spray powder or dry shampoo lightly on the hair to bring the gloss to a natural shine. 

 

Use the heat from your hands to tame the flyaway hair and to help the hair at the hairline stand up off your head.  Warm your hands together to create heat. Then place your hand on top of the wig. The heat will help with any unnecessary flyaways and will help create lift where you need it.

 

TIP #4 Placement of Your Wig

Wigs for Black Women

Where you wear your wig will definitely make a difference in how natural it looks.  If your wig is too far down on your forehead, it will be noticeable. First you want to make sure your wig is the right size. Then we recommend wearing a nylon or mesh cap underneath. This will conceal your own hair and help any hair fall out under the wig.  Your wig should lie right on your natural hairline.

 

Now, if you don’t have any hair and you’re trying to figure out where your natural hairline would be… Use the 90-degree angle trick. Simply hold one hand in front of your face pointing up while the other hand will rest on top of your head. Touch the fingertips of both hands together creating that 90-degree angle.  Right where you finger tips meet will be where your hairline is!  Watch the video to see how easy it is for you. 

 

TIP #5 The Magic Blend Trick

One of our favorite tricks is blending a wig in with your own hair. Leave the front section of your hair out and wear the wig a little farther back on your head to expose your natural hair. Make sure to style your own hair to match the wig's texture or curl pattern for the most seamless look.

 

Lace front wigs gives you a beautifully natural looking hairline… But your ACTUAL hairline can't be beat! So if you have the hair to do it… Try it!

 

Now that you know some of the pros best tricks, try some or all of them. You'll be surprised what a difference they make in the styles you already own. But, it may prompt you wanting to get a new style!  Whether you need to wear wigs or simply want to wear them to make life easier… These tips will give you the confidence to flaunt it.

    I’m 62 yrs old and have a very low hair line and looking for a topper that goes down to where I need it.
    Im tired of coloring my gray hair every 2 to 3 weeks.
    Need the color to be a medium reddish brown and to cover not only the top of my head but to really cover my temples and side burns to.
    Losing a lot of hair also.
    Can’t spend to much money so something in you very low price range.
    I guess it can be a 10 to 12 inches in length and want it straight and parted on straight side.
    My forehead is only 1 1/2 " Tall by 5 1/2 " wide

    If you help me that would be great.
