A lace front wig is a great way to switch up your hairstyle without committing to a permanent look. However, one of the biggest challenges that people face when wearing a lace front wig is making it look natural. Fortunately, with the right techniques and tools, you can make your wig look like it’s growing from your scalp. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how to make a lace front wig look natural, including how to style curly edges and a kinky curly wig.
Choose a High-Quality Lace Front Wig
The first step to making your wig look natural is to choose a high-quality lace front wig. Look for wigs made with human hair or high-quality synthetic hair that can be heat-styled. It’s also important to choose a wig with a lace front that matches your skin tone. This will help the wig blend seamlessly with your natural hairline. A good quality lace front wig will have a natural-looking hairline and a realistic density.
Trim the Lace Front
Once you have your wig, the next step is to trim the lace front. Use a pair of sharp scissors to carefully cut the excess lace along the hairline. Be sure to leave a small amount of lace to ensure a natural-looking hairline. Take your time with this step, as it can make a big difference in the final result.
Style the Wig
Now that you’ve trimmed the lace front, it’s time to style your wig. Start by washing and conditioning the hair to remove any excess product buildup. If you’re working with a curly or kinky curly wig, you may want to use a leave-in conditioner to help define the curls. Once the hair is clean and conditioned, you can style it as desired.
For Curly Edges: Use a Curling Iron or Curling Wand
To create defined curls that match the rest of the wig, use a curling iron or curling wand to style the edges of the wig. Start with a small section of hair at the front of the wig and wrap it around the curling iron or wand. Hold the hair for a few seconds and release. Repeat this process until all the edges of the wig are curled to your desired level of definition.
For Kinky Curly Wigs: Use a Twist-Out Method
To create a more natural-looking texture for a kinky curly wig, try using a twist-out method. Start by sectioning off the hair into small sections. Apply a styling cream or gel to each section, then twist the hair into small twists. Allow the hair to air dry or sit under a hooded dryer. Once the twists are dry, unravel them to reveal defined curls.
Blend the Wig with Your Natural Hair
To make your wig look even more natural, it’s important to blend it with your natural hair. Start by sectioning off a small amount of your natural hair at the front of your head. Use a fine-tooth comb to tease the hair slightly to create a bit of volume. Then, use a small amount of hairspray to help hold the hair in place. Finally, carefully place the lace front wig over the teased hair and adjust as needed to ensure a seamless blend.
Once you’ve blended your wig with your natural hair, there are a few final touches you can do to make it look even more natural. Use a small amount of powder or foundation that matches your skin tone to lightly dust along the parting of the wig. This will help to make the part look more natural and less like a wig. You can also use a small amount of hairspray or styling gel to
