How to Get A Natural Hairline

Due to the diversity of wigs, nowadays more and more people like to wear wigs to change their appearance, In addition, many wig users may have a problem with unrealistic hairline for a long time, and the edge of the wig does not match the texture of the hair. And we will show you how to get a natural hairline.

A lace front wig is recommended 

If you want to create a natural hairline. Human hair wigs come in a variety of styles, composition, length, texture and color. Lace front wigs are where human hair is tied to a sheer lace base which goes over the scalp.

Choose a wig with bangs if necessary

You might opt for a machine made wig with bangs to cover up the area where your natural hairline would be if you have a receding hairline.

Choose a wig cap that matches your skin tone

A wig cap that matches your skin tone looks a lot like scalp. It is usually recommended to use a fleshy hat, as the lace will be seen below. The scalp is always much lighter than the face because it doesn't get enough sunlight. A light hat looks more like your scalp.

Wig as close as possible to the hairline

After securing the wig into place, try to align it with the natural hairline. When placing a wig, look in a mirror and check whether it is too high or too low before fixing it. 

Keep your edges under the wig

It’s common that your own hair is curly while your wig is straight and you don’t plan to straighten your own hair to blend with this wig. Through this way you don’t have to worry about blending.

Define your hair parting by plucking and powdering it

Some parts in wigs may look really fake by being too narrow. To make your part look more real, use tweezers to pluck around the part to widen it. Take some makeup setting spray or water to spray your brush. Dip it into the powder or foundation which color is a little whiter than your skin color to cover the hair knots and make the parting look just like your own parting.

Make the baby hair by yourself

Although lots of human hair wigs come with a little bit of pre-plucked baby hair and are ready to wear fresh out of the package, you still need to pluck a few hairs out of the hairline and part if it’s too thick and presents unnatural looking.
