Of course, we all want to achieve that natural look when wearing a wig, regardless of the type of lace wig you are wearing. Human hair lace front wigs are perhaps the most beautiful and common types of wigs on the market. They give wearers that natural look they desire. In addition to that, they help conceal hair loss and hair thinning, making them suitable for ladies experiencing hair loss due to factors, such as alopecia, medications, or chemotherapy.
However, the only main downside of lace front wigs is making them look natural. This is especially a headache for ladies who are new to wigs. Thankfully, in this article, we are here to help you by giving you tips that can help you make your lace front wig look natural as well as a tutorial video to help you do the same. Let’s get started!
Invest in a high-quality lace wig
First thing first, if you want your 13x4 lace front wig to look as natural as possible, you must invest in a high-quality lace front wig. A cheap synthetic wig is less likely to give you that natural look you are yearning for. But a high-quality lace front wig, on the other hand, can give you a more natural look. The hairline will appear as if it is coming from your scalp, giving you a natural look.
Remember that quality matters a lot when buying a wig. A high-quality wig will not only give you a more natural look but also a higher value for your money.
Go for a lace front wig cap that perfectly fits
The wig cap size is also a crucial factor that you must consider if you want your lace front wig to give you that natural look. If your wig cap is too big and doesn’t fit properly, the wig will look unnatural. On the other hand, if the wig cap is too tight, it will feel very uncomfortable on your head and even cause a headache. That’s why you must be very careful when choosing a capsize for your lace front wig.
There are three main types of wig capsizes in the market: small [22-21.5 inches], medium [22-22.5 inches], and large [over 22.5 inches]. So you need to measure the circumference of your head to know which of these cap sizes will perfectly fit you.
Pick the right lace front wig that suits the shape of your face
Selecting a lace front wig that flatters your face shape is also a great way to make your wig look more natural. To buy the right lace front wig that complements your face shape, you must first understand the shape of your face. Generally, shapes faces include round, square, heart-shaped, rectangular, oval, etc. If you have a round face, it would be better to pick a wig that will give you that full-looking appearance. The best wigs for round face shapes include short curly wigs or side part human lace front wigs. These wigs will balance the shape of your face, creating a natural and smooth look. The rule of the thumb is to know your face shape and get a lace front wig that balances it.
Select the right color
You also need to make sure that you choose the right color when buying your lace front wig. A color that complements your skin tone will look natural on you, and make it hard for people to think that it is indeed a wig. They will think that it is your natural hair. There are plenty of colors you can choose from because lace front wigs often come in various colors, including brown, black, maroon, etc.
If you are not sure about which color will look good on your skin complexion, you need to determine the color of your scalp. For instance, if your scalp is black, choose a lace front wig that is medium brown as it will look more natural on your scalp. And if you have a white or light scalp, a transparent lace wig is ideal for you.
Pluck your lace front wig
Another perfect way you can make your 13x4 lace front wig look more natural is by removing the hairs along its edges. Plucking the hairs will make your lace front wig look more natural. To pluck the wig, place it on a mannequin head and use tweezers to remove the hairs along the wig’s hairline. But for best results, you can pluck the wig when wearing it as you will be able to see where you should exactly pluck.
Cut the lace to fit your face
Another incredible way to make your lace front wig look more natural is by cutting the lace. It is best to cut the lace of your lace front wig when it is on your head. Place the wig on your head and adjust it to where you want it to be. Make sure that it is secure. Start cutting the lace.
