HOW DO I MAKE SYNTHETIC WIGS LOOK NATURAL?
Share from one of our customers about how to make synthetic wigs look natural:
Today I'll show you how I make my synthetic wigs look natural. I got this wig from UniWigs. It has a large parting space and some combs inside. The edges are good, but we can still do some plucking to make it look more natural.
1. PLUCK THE HAIR
Pin the wig onto a wig stand. Then brush the wig out so you can see what you are working with. Get some tangling on what you are plucking. It's nice to minimize that. This is what you can start out with the part.
Go ahead and tweeze the part. Remember, when plucking your lace, be gentle and avoid pulling too hard to prevent any unwanted holes. It's not a big deal if you are a beginner, you just need to follow the method in this tutorial.
You can see the flyaways around the edges. Those flyaways do not matter because we will lay this hair down later.
Next, pluck a few little flyaways. Part and measure how thick you want the part since you already tweezed the part that they have made.
After everything has been plucked and arranged in the correct manner, you will be able to see where the tracks begin and where the separation finishes. This will allow you to travel as far back as possible using the available area for the parting. My belief is that the realism of the wig will increase in proportion to the length of the section. Let's make an effort to get all the way back there, shall we? However, you must take care not to reveal the tracks.
Then we are going to start on the edges. Part a thin layer in the front and pluck behind this layer to get a more realistic look. Braid down the front layer so that it does not get in the way while you pluck it. And then you can start plucking it very similarly to when you pluck the part. You don't want to go too rough because you will rip the lace. It's way harder to hide it if you rip the lace on the side than the parting.
This is what it looks like. As you can see there's a layer that looks way more natural hairline transition thickness. You need to pluck a little bit more on this side because it's not as natural as the other.
2. WEARING THE WIG CAP
Get your hair ready to put the wig cap on. You need to make sure that your ears are covered, and your hair is behind your ear under the wig cap. And then spray got2b glue (or another water-soluble glue made for wigs) along your hairline and a little bit over it. You can use a blow dryer on a cool setting so that it can dry faster.
3. APPLY FOUNDATION
You can dot some foundation on top of the wig cap so when you lay my wig, it will blend in and look like your scalp underneath. If you have some hair underneath the cap, you want to make sure that you dot it along your hairline or however deep you think your part will be. Try to get that coverage.
After cutting the extra front lace you can apply some foundation powder inside of the lace. The reason to do this is that you can't bleach the knots of synthetic wigs. This is the way to dye the lace so it will blend even nicer with the foundation on your wig cap.
All you will need to do to lay the wig is just spray some got2b spray on the edges and wear a scarf to make it stay, which took about 15 minutes.
4. DOING BABY HAIRS
Use a bobby pin to take little hairs from the front of the wig and then cut them down. Try to make them as short as possible. After that, apply some mousse and use a toothbrush to lay them down.
After all these steps the wig finally looks way more realistic than it did originally. Hope this was a little bit helpful for you!
