If you’re going to be wearing a wig once in a while or all the time you don’t want people to know you’re wearing it.
Having an obvious wig is okay for Halloween or other ‘dress up’ type events, but for every day wear you want something that looks entirely natural, like you were born with hair like that.
So you have to figure out how to make a wig look natural.
Keep it In Line
The first thing you want to do is make sure that your hair is going to match your wig.
You don’t want someone to notice a huge difference, after all. Dying your hair is no big deal and everyone does it, but your natural hair and your wig need to look alike.
Match Your Roots in Color
Make sure the wig you choose is the same color as your roots or make sure you dye your roots to match the color of the wig.
This way, no one is going to see the difference when you are working on blending everything in together. Color is one of the easiest things to match but it’s also one of the most overlooked.
Match Your Roots in Style
Make sure that you match up your wig to the ends of your hair. You want to get the fit just right, which means you need to line up the edges of the wig with your hairline. Don’t let it get too different or someone is going to notice that it’s not natural at all.
Cut the Shine
Wigs tend to have a characteristic shine that shows off how fake they really are. Your real hair (no matter what you do) just doesn’t have that kind of shine. You want to get rid of that obvious shimmer and you can do it really easy.
A little bit of baby powder applied to your wig can help you cut through some of that shine. You just want to use a wig brush or even your fingers to lightly brush the powder through. Make sure that you’re getting rid of any excess because you definitely don’t want so much that it’s obvious it’s there.
Another alternative is dry shampoo, which can just be sprayed on the wig to get you just what you’re looking for. It cuts the shine in a simpler fashion and that means a whole lot less work for you to get things just right.
Give it a Bit of a Trim
When was the last time your hair looked absolutely perfect? Well, a wig is designed to look absolutely perfect. So, contrary to what you might think, you actually need to give it a little bit of a trim to offset some of the perfection. Carefully snip a little bit of the hair at the front, but make sure you’re not doing it in clumps. You want just a little bit of loose hair, but not too much.
Use Some Makeup
A little bit of concealer at the edge of your wig will help to blend it perfectly into your skin. Make sure you use just a little bit here and anywhere else that the base shows through and doesn’t quite match your skin tone.
Just a little bit of work on your wig can quickly and easily figure out how to make a wig look natural. What could be better than that?
