How do you make a synthetic wig look natural?

MARCH 16, 2023


Quality Cap Design

Synthetic wigs are a great way to change up your look, but you might be worried about your wig looking “wiggy”. Here are some tips from our experts to help you rock a wig with confidence.

Choose a quality cap design. Lace fronts provide a realistic-looking hairline. Monofilament tops and fully hand-tied caps give the appearance of a natural part with hair growing from your scalp. 

Find Similar Shades to Your Own Hair

Start with shades that feel like your own. There are tons of options to choose from– solids, highlights, rooted…you name it! Sticking with looks that match your natural hair will always be a safe choice, but if you do want to venture out, try to stick with hair colors that complement your skin tone. 

Consider Wigs with Bangs

Consider wigs with bangs. If you’re nervous people will be staring at your hairline, opt for a wig with a fringe which will disguise the hairline altogether.

Use Dry Shampoo to Dull the Shine

Use brown-tinted dry shampoo for darker locks because the regular kind can leave a visible white residue. Also be sure to cleanse and condition your wig well to wash away any build-up on the fiber.


Have a stylist who is experienced in working with wigs trim baby hairs around the hairline of your wig. Wigs can also be thinned out if they feel too thick.

I have discovered that the gel product “Got 2B Glued” is terrific for holding my wigs on. I use it all the time, especially with the non-lace front wigs. Just one blob right in the front – press down and hold for a couple seconds. The wig never moves. Yes, it is a little hard to remove because I still have some bio hair, but it is certainly worth the feeling of confidence I get. I like this product better than “It Stays.”
