Five Tips To Make Your Wig Look Natural

Level: Beginner

Most of us have made mistakes when it comes to cosmetics and bad haircuts, and while trial and error help us figure out what does and does not look good, most common mistakes made with wigs are easy to fix. Navigating these synthetic hair faux-pas will result in a much more natural-looking wig that will last!

1. Channel your inner Cher!

I may have seen this played out a time or two. You buy your first wig, eagerly anticipate its arrival, stalk the mailman, shred the packaging, and plop it straight on your head, all to be disappointed that you’re not instantly ready for Coachella. I recommend applying a little makeup and having a positive mindset. It may sound silly, but hear me out. I often receive comments about my ability to wear any shade and style. My secret? Bronzer, lipstick, and confidence! We’ll be talking more about cosmetics soon! Watch for the release. 

  1. Bring your wig to life!

 Start by turning your wig upside down and give it a gentle shake. Your new wig has been stored, packaged, and transported and will need some air circulated through it. A soft shake will help to bring it back to life. It will loosen the fibers and help to separate the hair. It’s also important to play with your wig! Not every style comes with your unique shape, features, and skin tone in mind. With a little effort, such as moving or adding a part line, making sure it is appropriately positioned on your head or adding texture and volume, you can manipulate the wig into a style that is ultra-flattering to your face.                                             

 

3. Wigs caps and battling the bulge!

Your wig will come with a wig cap. We recommend starting with your natural hair wet. For those of you with long hair, you may need to utilize a ponytail and Bobbi pins. The goal is to make your hair as absolutely flat as possible! Bulgy natural hair under your wig will result in a less than natural appearance! If you have extremely short hair, you may find it easier to slick back your hair with your favorite product before applying your cap. Follow the quick tutorial below on how to use your cap and place your wig!

 

  1. Find your forehead

Having an unnatural wig hairline is an easy fix and makes a world of difference when it comes to looking authentic! Having bangs can add shape, shorten out a forehead, soften up a sharp jawline or add angles to a round face. Wearing a wig too far forward, and changing where your natural hairline sits, has the same effect but with not-so-chic consequences. The eye draws to this awkwardly shortened forehead. Make sure that the hairline of your wig sits exactly along your hairline, millimeter perfect!

 

  1. Understand your wig’s unique part line!

If your wig has a set parting line, it does not always mean it should sit in the center of the head. If in doubt, rewatch the live sale or check photos on the website! Some wig designs can be based around a dramatic side part. Wearing the parting line in the dead center of the head changes the intended look of the wig, and the hair can appear wonky and crooked. Of course, this does not apply to free-part lace front wigs (these allow for the placement of a part line anywhere you like), and some styles look fabulous no matter where the parting sits.

You are absolutely right about makeup! It makes a TOTAL difference. Thank you for the advise on hairline! I still have a bit of trouble with that part because of my widow’s peak. Also, I found your suggestion on shaking the wig a bit and letting it “breathe” upon arrival most helpful. I love my wigs.
