How Can I Make My Lace Front Wig Look Natural?

Unless you’re aiming for a truly flamboyant look, the whole point of wearing a wig is that… well… nobody knows you’re wearing a wig. Wig technology has come on in leaps and bounds, especially in the field of 100% human hair wigs in which we specialise here at My Gem Hair. They look and feel like the real thing, because that’s exactly what they are, but poor application can lead to people questioning the veracity of your hairpiece.

In this article, we’re going to look at five simple ways to make your new wig look like it’s your own hair:

Invest in a 100% Human Hair Lace Front Wig

Human hair lace front wigs offer one of the best ways to create a natural look. They are designed to give the illusion of a natural hairline, so it looks as though your wig is part of your head, rather than an attachment. Lace front wigs come in a variety of styles and are easy to apply, giving you an effortless natural look every time. You can even purchase a few different lengths to emulate natural growth!

The Right Wig for the Right Head

This should be obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people buy wigs that just aren’t right for them. The most common problem is the size – a wig that’s too large or too small will be easy to spot by any passing stranger, let alone by friends and loved ones. You need to accurately measure the circumference of your head, from your hairline to the nape of your neck, and back again to get the ideal fit.

Wigs Don’t Last Forever

Even the best wigs lose their shine and lustre over time. No matter how well you treat them, or how much wig-styling product your use, day-to-day use takes its toll on every wig. Wigs made of 100% human hair generally last around 3 years, which is as good a reason as any to attempt a new style!

Nobody’s Perfect

When you first get your wig, you can’t help but admire how perfect it looks, straight out of the box, and that’s a problem. Wig manufacturers can get hair that perfect thanks to dedication machinery and expert crafting but when was the last time you saw such perfect hair in the real world? It you ever did, you probably thought it was a wig – and you might have been right! To give a new wig a more natural look, throw in some imperfections. Mess up the part a little, use tweezers to pluck out a few strands around the hairline, trim a couple of strands here and there, and you’ll have it looking like the real deal in no time.

Align and Define

There are a few steps you can take when fitting your lace front wig to make it look more natural. Firstly, try to align the wig's hairline with your own natural hairline. Next, cut away any excess lace to make it less visible but remember to avoid the baby hairs as this will help with styling. If you find the lace doesn't quite match your natural skin tone, you can use your normal concealer to help blend it. Finally, don't be afraid to style your hair in whatever way makes it feel most natural to you. The beauty of a human hair wig is that you can do anything you would do with your own hair including dying it, perming it, and cutting it.
