Light Density Short Wigs

For those with thin hair or of European descent, light density wigs will give you the most natural look compared to your biological hair. Also referred to as low density wigs, this category of wigs is perfect for those seeking how to make wigs look natural for beginners.

Short Synthetic Wig

Link by Ellen Wille

Link is one of those petite cap wigs that have a low density and look supremely natural. This realistic wig is a tousled pixie cut with a long side-swept fringe. Because this style is made with heat-friendly synthetic fiber, you can customize the feathered layers to your liking with heat tools. Wear off the face and parted to the side to reveal a gorgeous lace front hairline and monofilament part.

Pixie Wig with Long Bang

Heard It All by Raquel Welch

With an extended lace front, this heat-friendly synthetic wig can be heat styled off the face, with a wave, or however you prefer! In this collection of the most realistic wigs, Heard It All has a tapered nape and a fuller bang area to keep you cool and stylish at the same time. Because of this style’s light density, you’ll hardly remember you’re wearing a wig at all.

 Synthetic Lace Front Wig

Clever by Ellen Wille

This shag-cut wig has choppy layers that taper at the nape. This realistic synthetic wig has a lace front and monofilament crown, making this light density style supremely natural. Clever has a hair density that is not too thick or too thin, so you can wear this style sleek and smooth or add a little BeautiMark Shaping Creme to get a texturized, tousled look.
