Wearing a wig isn’t as simple as just throwing it on haphazardly and hoping for the best. You need to know how to properly install them and make them look natural.We share 6 common mistakes all kinds of wig wearers make and some tips how to best avoid them.
1.Buying lace front wigs with a thick lace closure
As we know a thin lace closure can lay smooth and look scalp-like when installed,the thicker the closure material, the bulkier it will look.People should buy lace wigs with a thin lace because the thin lace melts and lays better. With a thin lace, you won't see any kind of demarcation.Our invisible HD lace is just very thin and can be melted easily with your hairline.Your ultimate goal is to make your wig look like your own hair and the invisible HD lace is the best option.
2. Not braiding your hair underneath your wig
Some people just put their hair back in a bun or a ponytail and are putting a wig on top of their hair. That’s a mistake you should never make because if your hair isn’t laying completely flat beneath a wig, it will appear bumpy or like the wig is just sitting atop your head, which is the last thing you want.So Before placing a unit on, don’t forget to braid your hair in cornrows.
3. Failing to bleach and pluck your knots
If you truly want to make sure your wig is undetectable,bleaching and plucking the knots is very important.Lace wigs are created by hand-sewing individual strands to a mesh base, which create tiny knots at the end. When dark hair is used, these knots appear as small black dots that are super noticeable, particularly where the unit is parted. To conceal them, you can either bleach or pluck them, but make sure not to be heavy-handed when doing either or else you risk over-plucking or overprocessing the hair.
4. Over-styling your baby hair
While overly styled baby hair continues to be all the rage, it's actually best not to overdo it when wearing a wig to ensure the unit seamlessly blends with your hairline. When you're wearing hair that's not yours, you have to make it look as natural as possible without doing too much. Less is more. Though it may be tempting to elaborately mold your wispies, simply slicking them back with some edge control should suffice.
5. Choosing units in unflattering colors
Many people want to experiment with color or multiple hues at once,but you need to make sure that the hair color goes with your skin tone.Also take into consideration your job and the clothes you normally wear when deciding on a new colored wig so that it fits right into your lifestyle and won’t clash with your wardrobe.
6. Not putting much effort into styling your wigs
How you style a lace wig makes or breaks how it looks in the end. No matter how you choose to alter a wig, always pay attention to details.Your wig may be fake, but you still want to make people think it’s growing out of your scalp. So remember to style your wigs with care and give yourself enough time to tailor it to your liking so they look as natural as possible.
