5 Tips for a Completely Natural Look With Wigs

Posted on February 14 2017


Look completely natural in your wig with these professional tricks used on celebrities everywhere. Your wig can look so perfect you'll actually want to tell everyone "it's a wig!"

 

Although human hair wigs are amazing... you don't have to have the most expensive wig to have a natural look. Don't break the bank thinking the most expensive wig is always the best.  

 

Go with your budget, needs, and personal taste and then use some professional tricks of the trade to maximize your investment.  Wigs are a game changer for every woman.  Now we just have to learn to use them to our advantage!  Use these tips to make you feel completely confident you look your best.  

 

The most important wig tips are not about what brand to buy or what style to wear.  You will get the best and most natural results when you focus on how you are wearing your wig and what features you don't skimp on!   See all you need to know (below) to take it up a notch and make your wig look flawless:

 

 

Tip #1. Rooted Colors 


Rooted colors give your wig dimension and a very natural look as it gives the illusion of the hair growth from your scalp. Rooted colors are also a product of a high-end salon visit. This also helps give the illusion of natural hair. However, if you just can't get used to the idea of the rooted look or If you cant find a rooted color for your wig, make sure you pick a color that has a blend of two or more colors to give you dimension. Highlighted color has relatively the same affect as rooted. Solid colors and wigs have a tendency to look less natural. 

 

 

 

Tip #2 Lace Front and Monofilament Top are Key! 

 

Having good quality human hair or synthetic hair and the right color is important but the right wig cap is key. You don’t necessarily need to buy the most expensive wig to achieve a natural look. 

 

Lace front is a feature which gives you a virtually natural hairline which is seamless and looks like the hairs along the hairline are growing right out of your head. 

 

Monofilament tops feature the same benefit of lace front in that they also give the illusion of hair growing out of your scalp where the hair is parted.  Because each hair is sewn in just like natural hair grows...It's a much more natural look.

 

 

 

TIP #3 Product and Heat From Your Hands

These simple tools can improve the look of any wig.  Product is important to condition the hair (make sure to keep the conditioner mostly at the ends). Also... our favorite trick for tempering the glossy look some wigs may have is to use spray powder or dry shampoo lightly on the hair to bring the gloss to a natural shine. 

 

Use the heat from your hands to tame the flyaway hair and to help the hair at the hairline stand up off your head.  Warm your hands together to create heat. Then place your hand on top of the wig. The heat will help with any unnecessary flyaways and will help create lift where you need it.

 

 

 

TIP #4 Placement of Your Wig

Ellen Wille Sky Wig

Where you wear your wig will definitely make a difference in how natural it looks.  If your wig is too far down on your forehead, it will be noticeable. First you want to make sure your wig is the right size. Then we recommend wearing a nylon or mesh cap underneath. This will conceal your own hair and help any hair fall out under the wig.  Your wig should lie right on your natural hairline.

 

Now, if you don’t have any hair and you’re trying to figure out where your natural hairline would be… Use the 90-degree angle trick. Simply hold one hand in front of your face pointing up while the other hand will rest on top of your head. Touch the fingertips of both hands together creating that 90-degree angle.  Right where you finger tips meet will be where your hairline is!  Watch the video to see how easy it is for you. 

 

TIP #5 The Magic Blend Trick



One of our favorite tricks is blending a wig in with your own hair. Leave the front section of your hair out and wear the wig a little farther back on your head to expose your natural hair. Make sure to style your own hair to match the Wigs texture or curl pattern for the most seamless look.

 

Lace front wigs gives you a beautifully natural looking hairline… But your ACTUAL hairline can't be beat! So if you have the hair to do it… Try it!

 

 

Now that you know some of the pros best tricks, try some or all of them. You'll be surprised what a difference they make in the styles you already own. But, it may prompt you wanting to get a new style!  Whether you need to wear wigs or simply want to wear them to make life easier… These tips will give you the confidence to flaunt it.

    Head so small, hair so thin, cannot clip pieces into it and when wear full wig it looks like I’m wearing a hair hat! I’d like a wig that still looks appropriately thin, but not balding. Suggestions?

    Hi~
    I just wanted to comment on how beautiful the wigs are in the 5 tips video. Can you tell me which wigs she is wearing and in what colors?

    Thank you!

  • Lisa: March 17, 2018

    What wig and color is shown at .58 seconds into the video? It’s red with bangs. I’m looking for a bright copper auburn wig with bangs.

    Hi Mary!
    We recommend a wig that is hand-tied, has a monofilament, or if a basic cap; one that is capless. We would definitely recommend purchasing the no sweat liners we carry. The nude back layer, is great for camouflaging the liner under wigs and headwear. The unique combination of micro-fiber materials are engineered specifically for your needs to stay dry and comfortable. The moisture transport system quickly draws perspiration away from the skin, wicking it into the transport layer.

    I wear a mono, lace front topper. I sweat so bad where the mono is.
    I’m considering a full wig, not sure but what I want most is the (coolest) possible. Can you recommend the wig or topper that I would not sweat so much. It’s embarrassing dripping down my neck. Help!

  • The wigs for black women: February 05, 2018

    Hi Marilyn!
    You can try spraying some dry shampoo on the part of the wig and then massaging it into the fibers to temporarily lighten the color. They also have dry shampoos with a hint of color that you can try as well!

    Thank you for your comment!

    Antonia,
    You must be careful when coloring wigs because they can be easily damaged. It also depends on what type of wig you are trying to color… I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are a licensed cosmetologist.

    You could try using dry shampoo with a hint of color to achieve a rooted look. This is temporary and will not damage the wig.

    Personally, I hate dark roots because I have naturally champagne blonde hair (or fluff) and roots make it look like a person dyes her hair. I find the rooting way too much of a contrast and wonder why wig manufacturers can’t do subtle shading instead.

    Which brings me to my question. Roux Fancifull hair colour (a temporary water-rinse) Is a darkish toner for blonde hair that comes in a variety of shades from pale silver to “chocolate kiss”— which sounds dark but isn’t. I guess it would be fine to paint this on the roots with a makeup brush (?) I tried it on the hair wheel and it seemed to work just fine and was subtle, but one would have to be careful not to colour the actual mono. I have recently ordered three wigs from you, none with roots, and am now concerned they will not look natural.

    I bought a wig but the side part looks too dark, not natural. How can I make it look natural?

    Hi Carolyn!

    You do not have to wear adhesive with a lace front wig. Most come with adjustable straps to keep the wig snug on your head.

    Human Hair wigs tend to look the most natural, but synthetic wigs have come a long way! Here’s a link to our selection of mid-length wigs.

    http://wigs-forblackwomens.com/collections/mid-length-wigs

    Since your hair is growing back, you might also want to consider a topper. Toppers blend in to your real hair for a super natural look.

    Also, I recommend Ellen Wille for women with finer hair because they typically are less dense than other manufacturers.

    Happy Wednesday!

    Do you have to wear adhesive with a lace front wig? I have lost hair due to a medication side effect. My hair is growing back, but I’m considering purchasing a wig that looks like my own hair. I have thin chin length hair. I’m willing to use a wig with a length no longer than my shoulder. Any suggestions?

    Linda,

    Thank you for your comment on our blog!

    Wigs come coated with shine straight out of the box and will lose their shine after a few washes.
    To re-add shine to your style, try using a product like BeautiMark’s Shine Serum or Brilliant Shine spray.

    Ends of all types of fibers will also become damaged with daily use, especially if you are applying heat to your style with no products made to protect the fiber used!
    To help your ends of your fiber, use a deep conditioner like BeautiMark’s Intensive Recovery Mask. Apply the mask and let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour, then rinse in COOL water (Important step! Hot water can cause synthetic fiber to lose their style! Plus, cool-cold water adds shine to human hair.) After rinsing, use your fingers to part and twist your style back into the curls you are wanting. Pin if necessary and let dry.
    If this home remedy doesn’t help, it may be wise to take your wig or hairpiece to a Wig Salon for a trim or for maintenance.

    Please let us know if you have further questions!

    All the best,

    Bought a quality wig but having frizzy ends I bought it in September. It loss it’s shine and curl what do I do?

  • The wigs for black women: September 13, 2017

    Jennifer,

    Thank you for your recent comment!

    Going forward, I suggest only choosing Petite wig sizes, if you can help it as well as using mesh wig caps instead of nylon. They just work better!
    A mesh cap bobby pinned to your bio hair should help with the wig moving.

    We also sell a wig grip on our website, called Sure Grip, and it can also provide another layer of security: http://wigs-forblackwomens.com/products/sure-grip-for-wigs-beautimark

    Try these suggestions and let me know if it helps! I am available for other questions you may have, so please email me back if you have any!

    All the best,

    Hi. Thanks for these great tips. How do I keep the nylon cap from slipping off? The last time I wore my wig out, I was horrified at lunch to see that it had been sitting on my bio hair like a bike helmet! It was traumatic. I have tried wig tape and Bobby pins. Is it just my head that is wonky? I do not get what I am doing wrong. If I wear it back from my hairline to blend, it migrates. How do you keep it anchored. I am on the cusp between petite and average, and this is an average wig adjusted tight. I do not know if this means it is too tight or too loose. I did try to get help from the wig shop in town but when she found out I was not there to buy, she snatched her wig off my head and waited on someone else. I am beside myself because my hair is coming out but I do not want to shave it yet. I just want the ease and enjoyment of wigs everyone else seems to have. Can you help me?

    Dear Pratt,

    Thank you for you comment on our blog!

    We apologize for the inconvenience! However, if you cut the hair from the clip the piece will fall apart. A similar pony that we recommend trying is the 23" Long Wave Pony by HAIRDO. This pony is stunning and come with a long strip of wrap around hair that securely connects with a Velcro attachment.

    Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.

    All the best,

    I recently purchased an easihair ponytail clip called Rampage. when wearing the clip it is just way to big it sticks off the back of my head like a horse tail. It said on the packaging optional drawstring bun base, but there were no instructions inside and I could not find any instructions on your website as a remedy to this problem. I was afraid to cut the hair from the clip, for fear it would fall apart. If I cut it off the clip can I use the draw string, the clip seems to be way to large and heavy for my head. Please let me know what to do.
    Love the hair, but can’t use it the way it is.
