Tip 1: Buy A Wig That Fits Your Head
Please measure your head. From ear to ear, forehead to nape, circumference. DO IT ALL. Having a wig that is too big is just as bad as having a wig that’s too small. A small wig is not going to lay properly and it will not cover your whole head. A large wig will have a lot of extra room causing the wig to have humps at the top or in the back.
Tip 2: Bleach Knots
Please take time out to bleach your knots so there will not be black dotes causing wig not to blend. Bleaching the knots takes away those black dots that put you in the mind of a mannequin head, and it adds a more natural look.
Tip 2: Pluck Your Wig
Make sure you are plucking your wig to give it a natural look. Most wigs will come with thick edges. Our edges are much thinner then the rest of our hair so we want to give that gradient look by plucking a few rows in the front. Also pluck your part.
Tip 3: Cut the Lac to Fit Your Face
Do not cut straight across the lace. Put the unit on your head and cut the lace according to your hair line. You want it to look natural so you should have a few curves by your eyebrows and ears. If you have a widows pick hey put a widows pick in your frontal.
Tip 4: Blend
Most laces do not blend with your skin completely. Now, I do recommend HD frontals because they are thin and they blend almost perfectly. For those who do need to blend for a more natural look, use your powder or liquid foundation. Take a sponge and lightly dab around the edges of the frontal to help it match your skin tone.
Tip 5: Flatten Your Natural Hair
When you are braiding or molding your natural hair down before installing your wig, please be sure that it is flat. If you are braiding you want to be sure the braids are small and flat. The do not have to be extra small but the thicker your hair is the more braids you will need in order to keep your wig flat. If you are molding, be sure not to leave any humps especially not at the dome of your head.
Tip 6: Use 100% Human Hair
Please baby invest in yourself. Do not go get a synthetic shiny plastic weave and expect it to slay like natural hair. Go ahead and invest in some good quality extensions that will last you for a couple years. Buy multiple synthetic wigs throughout the year is more expensive than buying quality hair.
