Customizing your wig hairline is vital to making your wig look natural.
However, when done incorrectly, it can cause unsightly bald spots or visible holes in the lace. For that reason, it is best to work carefully and slowly, as you can always go back and pluck more hair but you cannot go back and place more hair.
To begin, section a small part of your hairline and use sharp tweezers to pluck hair away. Grab only a few hairs at a time and keep your tweezers moving to different parts of the section you are working in to avoid creating bald spots.
Comb through that section and discard all the hair that has been removed. Section a little more hair from behind where you were working and repeat the process.
We recommend watching one of the detailed videos below before making any changes to your wig.
Tame Fly Aways
When you go to add your middle or side part to your frontal, you may see short hairs that stand up and seem to refuse to smooth down. These "fly away" hairs can be an unsightly headache, but they are completely normal. Here is the easy equation to fix them.
Product + Heat Source = NO FLY AWAYS
Coat the flyaways with product and then apply a heat source. The product can be a mouse, a wax stick, or even a 50:50 conditioner water mixture. The heat source can be a blow dryer, a hot comb, or a straightener.
After heat has been applied, you can tie your hair down for a few minutes to set it into place.
